CPM Plus ROM
« on: 14:47, 20 December 12 »
Hey
 
I feel like a doofus asking this question here, but i have trawled the wiki and just cant find the answer i'm looking for.
 
I am currently trying out some ROMs and found a copy of CPM plus on some roms. So i fired them into winape to test but have no idea of what the RSX command is to start CPM from ROM. everytime i try !CPM amsdos kicks in and starts looking for the floppy disk.
I'm sure its obvious but i can't find a manual/quickstart for CPMplus anywhere.

General solution: Try to install something like Maxam or XD-DOS. They provide a RSX command !HELP
 
!HELP shows a list of the connected ROMs
 
!HELP,nr shows all RSX commands of  ROM number 'nr'
 
Sadly XD-DOS doesn't work with Winape, but it has the best !HELP command. Use MAXAM as ROM and it's !HELP, it will help you enough ;-)
