Wordstar for CPC464
« on: 23:37, 11 December 17 »
Hi,


Does anyone have a working copy of Wordstar (for CPM, of course), already installed with the proper terminal, keys and printer settings?
I have my own copy of Wordstar 3.0, but I cannot get the terminal type right and the logo and menus look like garbage. Also I have v3.30, but I cannot install it because it occupies 179KB and It doesn't fit the whole WS.INS installer on the disk to configure properly.


Thanks!

You can try: http://www.cpc-power.com/index.php?page=detail&num=4190
These are already configured and run under CP / M 2.2
If it is for Wordstar under CP / M + you can configure the console as Zenith Z19 or Z29

Thanks a lot! The 2 sided disk from that website has already a Schneider CPC terminal configured and it works great! Only problem is that the text is only in German... Is there any way to change in English?

I gave it a try, but it seems that it is for CPM+, maybe more RAM required, because I get "No room" error message...

Well, I used it with the Z3Plus system (which needs CP/M+ as you said). The Z3Plus uses terminal descriptors which helps a lot when showing letters on screen with attributes.  :)
