Hi,


I have found a VDOS 2.0-X online that works great with a 6128. However I have a 464 and want to have it as an extra ROM (esp. for the |XMON). So I used it on the CPC464 as well, but the XMON (and |fast as well) do not work with 464.


In XMON you cannot see anything (blue screen), but it is full alive. If you exit and enter |slow, you can see everything again.


So there must be something in the ROM I have, that is not compatible with the CPC464 ROM. It is just a minor thing, but makes the XMON unusable.


So does anyone have a copy of VDOS 2.0-X for the 464?


I had one in 86, but neither the CPC464 nor the X-Module or the F1-X exists anymore (not to my knowledge :-) ).

So many unknown words here, I'm embarrassed.

Sorry, I was not trying to embarrass anyone ...  ;D


It is just a very specific topic and if you never had a Vortex X-Drive you most likely never come across of any of those. So don't be embarrassed ... no reason to  :-*

Yes, i think i have one. I have a 5,25 Drive with an external Controller. I used it with Standard Amstrad ROM, because using it as 3,5 Inch Drive on my CPC  :D


I put the Vdos ROM out, no need for that at this time.


It´s hard to find, but i have it. I have to go digging.

Well, just to inform you... the Vortex ROMs are protected by hardware.

If you 'just' copy the EPROM it will not work in an non-Vortex controller.

Of course there is a decoeded verson of the F1-X VDOS for the CPCs too.Didn't I upload this working decoding version years ago?

For some reasons I can't upload here.

Coming back to it. I found another version (which is 2.0-X Version). That works.

The 2.0-X Version does have an internal debugger (monitor) build in.

However the version I have does only work with a 6128 configuration (tried in winape). Using 6128 ROM + Basic 1.1 and AMSDOS it works. But using it with 464 + BASIC 1.0 and AMSDOS does not execute the |xmon correctly. I do not understand where the difference is and if they really programmed a XMON specifically for the 6128 and one for the 464 ...

So the attached version is it - but as I said it only works with a 6128 configuration.

Du kannst ja den XMON Teil disassemblieren, und die Einsprünge in dir Firmware von 6128 auf 464 umstellen. Das 'Große ROM Listing' könnte dabei helfen.

I think I am going to approach that now. Sounds like a great learning experience.


I think, that it might be the |fast routine, that does not work at all and is probably used by |xmon
