Online with Honeyterm and Mame with a hack
« on: 23:23, 28 January 21 »
I finally managed to get online with Honeyterm and Mame with a bit of a hack.


A bit more involved than I expected. I had to disassemble the Honeyterm ROM and learn a fair bit about the z80 Dart. It was quite all consuming.
Many thanks to Barry (Mahlemut), who did all the hard work a few years ago.

The best bit is the 1980s hacker cursor flying across the screen.

Pic attached!

I've managed to get Honeyview to connect also. Although I can't seem to continue past the first page with telnet and a pseudo tty. Sorry for the speccy viewdata. It was the only one I could get working.


This works with a bitbanger socket!


./mame64 cpc464  -v -exp rs232 -exp:rs232:rs232 null_modem -bitb socket.nxtel.org:23280
