iMPdos is still work in progress. For now, few people asked me to be beta testers (Kris, Dirtybb, Madram, Candy and Audronic).
Thanks for their feedback and advices.

I will happily debug it if you want to send me impdos via e-mail?

I am guessing, but maybe this helps?

- Do you use di/ei? Maybe ints are not turned back on again?
- do you change interrupts for firmware (write to 0038 to set your own interrupt handler)? Maybe this needs to be restored.
- maybe the cpc is waiting for answer from x-mass and the code is in a infinite loop?
- maybe the rom state has changed and firmware is confused if upper/lower rom is enabled or not?
- do you use af',bc',hl',de'?

I see that you implemented most of the CAS firmware functions. That is a lot of work to do :)

With CAS CATALOG do you fill the "2k buffer" that is passed to it? Do you fill it in the same way as AMSDOS does?

<ff> <8 bytes filename> <3 bytes extension> <2 bytes>

I ask because my image viewer program reads this data to find the list of files on the disc.

EDIT: I see CAS CATALOG is compatible with ORGAMS, but I don't know if that reads the catalog like I do.

Hi Arnoldemu,


Yes, That was a lot of work.
Concerning the « cas catalog » in OrgAms, it simply uses vector (bc9b). My cat routine is at the same adress.
In the first test version you could directly see the catalog data in bank #cc.
I only use 0,5kb (512 bytes) to read the data. (In buffer zone)
I do it in two passes. First i need to determinate if i’m in the root or in a directory.
I read the data and take only the directories files (first pass)
When all the repertories are read, i read the files names (second pass)
It’s not the same way as Amsdos. That’s why i can’t take the same pattern.

That's problematic. An IDE-ROM can't guarantee, that a 2K-buffer  is enough for one directory.
That's the reason for the RSX |UDIR
Title: Re: ImpDOS
Post by: Ast on 20:12, 17 February 18
In my personnal case, it's not problematic because my own routine only use 1 half kb.
If i would use cas catalog buffer to save all entries, it would be purely impossible !
Why? Because root has 512 names entries... Do your count! 1, 2, 3....

2KB is not enough for directory from ROMDOS, Vortex or Parados ;)

This is ok. For these I can read XDPB and calculate size of directory so I can give the correct sized buffer.
For ImpDOS and others this is not possible because they use MSDOS and not CPM based format :(

Ocp art studio only contains drive A and B parameters. So as the ocp+ version, it will need to be patched to work with.
-Many games and demos are working well.
-Trackloaders won't run anyway, only files.
-a new version of IMPdraw known as v2 will come soon and will allow i/o screen and Windows.
-100% Orgams compatibilities (import, export, load, save, directory...)
-basic instructions load/save are working.


And nice tricks too!

This Time, iMPdos gives you full access between drive À, B, X-Mass and M4
You could transfert your files in all configuration between all these drive.

Hi @Ast (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=573) ,

The post provides an example of how the Art Studio BASIC loader was modified to allow it to work with a different OS - Romdos instead of Amsdos. I thought this would show that it is possible - perhaps I have misunderstood @Targhan (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=110) ?

It would be cool to split the topic:

2. OCP with different DOS (Mr. AMS did a patch for X-DDOS too, to OCP with 704 KB)


But right here, please back to the wonderful ImpDOS (which is not ImpDRAW, ImpPHOTO or ImpANTICORONA, these are to be found in other topics).

Cool! A sector editor too! I missed that in all other DOS.  :)
Title: Re: ImpDOS
Post by: Ast on 17:59, 18 March 20
iMPdos sector editor exists since the first version with using the |ed instruction.
Try |hlp to discover how it works.


This time, i added two others possibilities.


In the previous one, you could only use


Quote
|ed,ab,c
a=sector num
b=cylinder low
c=cylinder hight


for example to look at root sector on iMPdos, just try


Quote
|ed,&201,0 ; Partition 1 only


Now, you could directly see wherever you are.


For example, ùP1:ùcdx,"games" - Partition 1 selection and Current Directory is "Games". Of course  this subdirectory must be on your x-Mass.


Then try :


Quote
|ed


This instruction will connect your sector editor on "Games" sector.


Quote
|ed,"filename"


this instruction will connect this file on your sector editor.


You will discover these one soon.

All you must know about the files :


* dos12312.rom (x-mass 128 mo only)
* dos52312.rom (x-mass 512 mo only)
* help.bin must be copied on x-mass on the root. When done, type ùhlp to install help file onto the x-Mass Cache Memory.


dos file must be installed between rom 1-6.

* Possibilité de chemin dans les commandes **load**, **save**, **cd**, etc...


un exemple :


**load"toto/001/kris.scr",&c000** accède au répertoire toto, puis au répertoire 001 et load le fichier **kris.scr** à l'adresse &c000.
**load"/cpc/sid.bin",&3000** va à la racine et accède au répertoire cpc puis load le fichier **sid.bin** à l'adresse &3000.
**/** marque la présence d'un répertoire. S'il est positionné juste avant le nom, un retour au root est opéré.
* Correction du bug lié à l'utilisation du reg **i**. En effet, lors de la recherche du nom du fichier pendant un load, un save, ...etc, le registre i n'etait pas ni sauvegardé,ni restitué.
* Correction rsx **|diff** (non documentée).
* Correction rsx **|head**. Le nombre de secteurs utilisés par le fichier est desormais affiché.
* Suppression des rsx **|dos** et **|dosoff** qui ne servaient à rien.
* Refonte totale de l’éditeur de secteur/mémoire. On peut désormais circuler, modifier à la volée comme sous **Discology**.
* Ajout de l’ascii dans les options de copies. Il est maintenant possible de copier les fichiers ascii en plus des fichiers basic & binaires et ce dans tous les sens. __Seul bémol__ il y a un bug qui ne permet pas le transfert ascii de la x-mass vers les drives A et B. Le contraire est possible. La copie fichiers (bas, bin et ascii) inter cartes (xmass <-> m4) fonctionne dans les 2 sens.

  • It's really nice to have copy RSX. But why not have used a standard syntax?  E.g.:
  • |cp,"a:*","x:"  ' copy from A to X-Mass
  • |cp,"x:*","u:/archive"
  • ...

Because we think it's shorter to do it like that. But in the rom, the same routine do the job.

  • A move RSX (|mv) would be handy.


Cool, because it's already done. It seems you missed it.

  • It would be neat to have a Ramdisk. I don't know what the overhead of your filesystem is, but implementation wise it's rather simple. For "c:" (or "m:") path, dispatch to RAM bank read/write rather than X-Mass sector read/write.

We have decided to cut iMPdos rom in 2 new roms, iMPdos API, and addON.
Here is an example of how copy files work.

Great! It's so handy to have a COPY RSX, which displays what it is doing (almost (: ).

Any comments, desires ?

Lot of desire, my body is on fire.

1. |copy,"source","dest" where source is the current drive+directory, if no explicit mention.
2. "dest": use drive name or mount point (e.g. a:, sd:) rather than arbitrary numbers. Well, like unidos (:
3. |mv,"source","dest".  dest can be just a directory (in the same device).

Very true, that's what I still appreciate about X-DDOS. Which is good for Floppy and Dobbertin HD20 hard-disc, but of course times (and with them the mass storage devices) have changed.

Here is iMPdos+addON (new) rom.


What's News since the oldest one ?

iMPdos_WiP
Total rewriting of #bc9B vector (cat). It is now possible to use DE as buffer.
Full compatibility Soundtracker DMA from Zik^Futurs.
Fix Alphabetic sort.
cat displays the directories in alpabetic order now.
Fix reset directory sector after copying files.
Add wildcard "*" for |del ou |era commands. You can now do ùdel,"*.bak" to erase all .bak files on your xmass repertory.
ùcopy can use wildcard now.

For example :
ùcopy,"ab*.*",source,destination will copy all files starting with ab
ùcopy,"mygfx/",source,destination will copy all files contained in the repertory mygfx. Please note that the detection of the directory is done with the char "/" at the end of the filename.

When no files are copied, a message is now displayed

Some Words about addON rom :

We have decided to split iMPdos in two roms. The first One (iMPdos) is the heart of the filesystem. All rsx, all code is only done for xmass managing.

The second one (addON rom) is a rom which contains tools to use with iMPdos but but but.... You can only use this rom with, Duke's M4 rom, Latest AlbiDOS rom (Not Unidos), and AmsDOS original rom. CubeMDOS support will be done.

Here are the details of this NEW rom :
   
|copy,"fichier.ext", source, destination : File Copy, From, To
|copy,"mydir/",source, destination : Copy Repertory, From, To

0 : drive A
1 : drive B
2 : xMass
3 : xMass
4 : xMass
5 : xMass
6 : M4
7 : Albireo Sd
8 : Albireo Usb
9 : Drive D (xMass AcmeDos/CubeMdos)

For example :
|copy,"*.scr",8,2 will copy all .scr files from Albireo USB Drive to xMass.
This drive has been added but still waiting for informations to be used.
It is impossible to copy file xmass <-> xmass for the moment. It will be fixed in the future.

|crunch,source,destination,lenght,[filename]
RLE Crunching , generaly used for screen files. (Thanks to CngSOFT)
Crunch a file starting in source to destination a lenght of #xxxx. If a filename is added, the crunched file will be saved on your selected support.
For Example :
|crunch,&c000,&4000,&3FFF,"titi.cru" : Crunch from &c000 address. Put the crunched data at &4000. The lenght of the file to crunch is &3FFF. A file named "titi.cru" will be saved.
The filename is only required of you want to save it on your drive support.

|dcrunch,source,destination : Decrunch your file From source to Destination.

For Example :
|dcrunch,&4000,&c000 : Decrunch the file from &4000 to &c000

|aff,source,destination
Display a winfile from OCP or iMPdraw (80 chars x 200 lines ONLY).

For Example :
|aff,&4000,&C000 : display a window from OCP or iMPdraw which start at &4000 to &c000.

|connect : Init all rom from 16 up to 31. (Replaces to Booster Rom)

|copyrom,"filename", rom number : Backs up the contents of the rom number in a file named filename.
The rom content of the rom is copied in the space from #4000 to #7FFF.

|xmem : Shows the list of roms, the slot and the version number of the roms installed on the xmem or M4 or RomBoard.

addON rom goes on.


ùcopy is more flexible now.


Code: [Select]
ùcopy,"usb:*.scr","x:"
Copy all .scr files from usb (AlbiDOS) to xMass current dir.


Something to add ?


added lz49 cruncher/decruncher from @roudoudou (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1714) on the latest rom.
Title: Re: ImpDOS
Post by: Ast on 21:35, 23 May 21
Hi!


This afternoon, i added some piece of code which allows to use the path on your X-Mass (Hey @TotO (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=290) !) and your Albireo, with old albiDOS.
So when you do :
Code: [Select]
|copy,"x:toto.scr","usb:demo/gfx/"


the file toto.scr from drive x: is copied on drive usb: (albireo) on demo/gfx/ repertories.


We hope you will enjoy this new feature.

The !FLASH command is (probably) part of Firmware 3.16 or so.

However, list the installer and see to which ROM numbers the files go.
Then use the ROManager of your choice and install the ROMs to the number you saw in the installer.

Here install them to ROMs 3 and 4.

(I don't know if the ROM numbers are hard coded, but you can find out)

@gunhed is right.
Rsx |flash comes from xmem expanded firmware.
So, you can easily install these roms using Roman.
Addon rom must be in slot 3, iMPdos in slot 4.
I home it will help you. If not, tell me!

Hi ray,


I don’t really know what is the problem ?


1. You need an x-mem, and you have one, right?
2. You need to install firmware 3.15 if you want to use the |flash rsx.
 https://cpcrulez.fr/download.php?a=VYasnZzWgsLl2M69gsbe29PNgMfp1dGHh7vn2dy7k7fUn8SLT7rp2Q== (https://cpcrulez.fr/download.php?a=VYasnZzWgsLl2M69gsbe29PNgMfp1dGHh7vn2dy7k7fUn8SLT7rp2Q==)


3. When firmware 3.15 is installed, put iMPdos +addon dsk
and type : run »install


I can’t do more, sorry.

Hi David

I have a small concern.
I have a CPC6128 in excellent working condition (NO Modifications)
I have used FW315 to Init all the X-mem slots.
Powered down
Restarted all ok
Installed FW315
Powered down
Installed Impdos (201523) and addons
Powered up and it looks like the iMP_Dos (Slot 4 )is Turned OFF ?
3 Photos included

#### Late update  ###


Also tested with 2 other X-mems and an other CPC6128
Same concern.

I just erased the DOM after it had been used with SOS's CubeMdos and used it for your ImpDos.
Yes the X-Mass is working OK


I found an earlier version of Impdos and it works with that
Its just the version 210523 that is of concern.

@Ray,


Is your Xmass a 128Mo or a 512 Mo ?
I join you the ROM for a 512 Mo, it comes from my CPC and it works perfectly here.
Title: Re: ImpDOS
Post by: Audronic on 09:50, 31 May 21

The DOM is 128 Meg


I will have a look at your rom and see what happens

Then you need the ROM dedicated to a 128Mo, I will ask @Ast (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=573).

IMPdos automatically detects the correct size of the dom since impdos_210317-3.


So there is only one rom now.

Title: Re: ImpDOS

try in slot 5, if it does not work then you have another issue.
The ROM is working well for us.


Are you using a xmem or something else ?

Old iMPdos detection was based on a read sector, the lastest don’t do that anyway.
Now, they read the id of the dom.
So, it is possible your id dom is corrupted. It is also possible you added the last rom I posted here with amsdos header and in this case it won’t run.



Title: Re: ImpDOS
Post by: Audronic on 15:44, 31 May 21

How many bytes is the header in the file ?

I did a special iMPdos version for you, without any id detection, but as you didn't answer me, i give you the 128mo version.
Please tell me if it runs correctly.


run"install if you have firmware 3.15/3.16 x-mem version

Title: Re: ImpDOS

CoOL ! The file help.bin must be copied on the root of the X-Mass.



When it's done, just type :
Code: [Select]
ùx
ùhlp

Then you could erase this file written on the cache-memory of your X-Mass.


Concerning, the id, i though your x-Mass DOM iD is corrupted.


Can you do :


Code: [Select]
?hex$(peek(&be61),2)+hex$(peek(&be60),2)


then


|med,address_displayed

What ? A long time to copy 1 file only (1ko) ?
What is your config ?
X-mem, x-mass, drive a ? And what else ?
Copying a file on x-mass takes only 1 second (except ascii one).

Title: Re: ImpDOS
Post by: Audronic on 02:36, 03 June 21
Hi David


Ok. What I use :-
CPC6128
X-mass (128meg Dom)
X-mem
3" Drive or Gotek (Drive A)


The delay in copying is that the version you sent me does NOT honour the |CPAX command that is in Help.bin
and I had to work through the other copy ? commands
Thats why I requested an appropriate |help.bin.
