Quote from: GeoffB17 on 23:56, 28 January 23Hello,Not sure what you mean regarding the TIM-011 being 'similar' to the PCW, similar in what regard?Regarding sound, the PCW has no sound - it has a simple beeper, and you might use software to create 'notes' using that beeper, but it would be a limited effect, and restricted to one note at a time.As for graphics, the PCW has a bit mapped screen and quite a bit has been done regarding graphics, for example there are a couple of extensions to BASIC that allow lines, shapes, fill etc, and 'drawn' large characters. Of course, many games have done a lot of graphics code (from scratch) and achieved remarkable things, but what could be done as a general library might be a different matter.Your code for CP/M working on the PCW is a different matter, the PCW is a perfectly standard CP/M+ computer, and Joyce is a perfectly standard CP/M computer emulator, so if you stick to CP/M things then this should work OK.Regarding the BASIC things, I've got info etc regarding WALBASIC (French) and I think ExBASIC, but both stay at a fairly low level using PLOT, LINE and similar.I'll see what info I can find regarding the TIM machine?Geoff
