Hi GUNHED,
Are you able to provide me with a FutureOS cart and if so can I have a price please?
Cheers,
Peter
Do you mean a physical cartridge or the CPR file for a C4CPC?

In every case please email me to futuresoft at gmx . de  :)

Physical cart,
Ok, no problem I do have the Cartridge PCB's with ACID chip, but I don't have an EPROM programmer at the moment, but I'm sure some buddy will help me out with this issue.  :)

Hi GUNHED,

Sorry, should have made this clear earlier.
I am looking for a cased physical cartridge.
I know for some people the sight of a chip and a circuit board is a pleasant thing indeed but not for me.  :D

If this increases the price by say £10 I understand.

Thanks,

Peter

Well, ok, I got one empty case here. You will get it, also I did email you for details.  :)


@LambdaMikel : Thank's for the offer, but I'm relatively sure to find someone 'around the corned' with an EPROM burner.  :)

Hi there,


MiguelSky reported problems with installing FutureOS to the M4 board. Please report it the installation process worked / did not work, so I can try to catch the bug.


BTW: The Spanish version had a mix-up, so please do update again.

Now there is a FAQ for FutureOS. At the moment in English only. You can find the FAQ at www.futureos.de in the Download section.

It would be great if you could contribute by asking related questions. This way we can expand the FAQ and make it an helpful tool for everybody.  :)

How to create a Wallpaper for FutureOS?
« Reply #638 on: 19:31, 04 December 18 »

How to create a Wallpaper (HinterGrundBild) for FutureOS?

- If possible install the 64 bit Java, to perform an update is a good idea
  In every case update your Java if you see some problems
- Start JavaCPC
- In case of problems switch off the expansion ROMs (FutureOS itself is fine :)
  (f.e. use |maxoff; |romon,7; |romon7 ect.)
- Insert an DSK image with at least 16 KB free space
- In JavaCPC click on 'Edit'
- Then click at 'FutureOS Wallpaper Tool'
- Inside the tool click at 'Import'
- Now select the picture you want to convert into a Wallpaper, then click Open
  (Pictures with a pixel format of 512 * 512 are fine)
  If everything went well, then you see the converted picture in the window of
  the tool and the emulators CPC output window too. The Border is grey!
- Below the 'Import' button and over the 'Save' button you can enter the name
  of the wallpaper you are creating. The names maximum characters are eight,
  the file-extension is always 'HGB' (stands for HinterGrundBild = Wallpaper)
- Now click the 'Save' button of the tool. Please wait about 20 seconds
  Attention: While the wallpaper is being saved to disc the BORDER is red!
- The new wallpaper is now saved on your disc (the border is grey again)

You can upload you new wallpapers to the forum or send them to TFM.
If you want I can put your wallpapers on the FutureOS.de homepage too.
Of course only if you like :-)

A WHOLE BUNCH OF THANKS TO DEVILMARKUS for creating this great Tool!!! :-)))

Wish you lots of fun!
TFM of FutureSoft






p.s.: You need to run the update.jar in JavaCPC to access the new function(s).

Please update your M4 firmware if you want to install FutureOS into the M4 card directly from an SD-card. Thanks a lot to Duke, who does super awesome work every day!  :) :) :)

I/O address space in PORTing System
« Reply #641 on: 17:22, 06 January 19 »
As you may know there is the PORTing System in FutureOS. To access it from Desktop: Type m, then p. Now you can read from and write to the I/O ports.

However the list of I/O addresses may be a bit "old". So here my two questions:
- Which I/O addresses will scarcely be used / which can be deleted?
- Which I/O port addresses do you want to have added?

Please comment! :) :) :)

FutureOS corner: New Update
« Reply #642 on: 01:10, 22 January 19 »
What's new?

- Apps and Docs updated
- Few error messages will now check for correct character set (RAM or ROM), before they used only RAM characters
- PORTing System (part of Machine Monitor) overworked, shrinked, polished
- OS functions R_SF3RTC, S_SF3RTC, BCD2BIN, R_USB3 added to ROM A. Write time/date to SF3, use USB mouse of SF3
- OS functions T_SF3, W_SF3, BIN2BCD(/E) added to ROM A. Functions to read time/date from SYMBiFACE III
- Wallpaper Discs III and IV added
- OS Installer adapted to be able to install FutureOS into a SYMBiFACE III expansion
- DISC-COPY: If auto-DIR is on, then (instead of asking for another copy) the DIRectoy will be read automatically
- COPY: If no file is tagged, now direct jump to OS function DISC-COPY
- Dobbertin HD20 automatic detection added. OS function 'format' compacted

Enjoy! Comments are welcome!  :) :) :)

Good to hear about the SYMBiFACE III support... mouse and FOS in one device might be another good reason to get one when it is released.

Well, since the SF3 is still in development stage, all is untested, but hopefully will work. About mice, up to now the AtariST mouse and the AMX mouse does work. Also the SF2 mouse of course.
The Albireo mouse is currently not supported, since the OS functions to drive it are very memory consuming and I have too few docs for a smaller / efficient driver. Somehow I still wait to see this nice project getting finished.  :)
