Here you go!
Put the ROM with the Joan-Wallpaper at position 14 (=&0E) and it will autostart the wallpaper.
FutureOS is expected to be at 10,11,12 and 13.

If you need another ROM select then use ROManager to install it. Because it adapts the ROM numbers.  :)
(Or let me know, then I will adapt the ROM number).  :)

Hi GUNHED,
       I was messing about with FutureOS while fixing a ROMBoard tonight and was wondering. Would it be possible to add two commands to the desktop. It would be really cool if you could have a "Send" and "Receive" button, that would allow you to send a file chosen from a drive to whatever Bluetooth/RS232/SPI port you've set up as your "Network" or receive and save a file arriving on the Network port. Obviously it would mean some sort of modular drivers for each configuration, but it would be a really handy thing to have.

Bryce.

Actually, that's a great idea. For a longer time things like serial expansion cards were hard to get for the CPCs. Recently (= during the last few years) we got the CPC/Mini-Booster, the M4, the USIfAC and soon the SF3. Now they are available for everybody.
Therefore it makes more and more sense to go that way. Will keep you updated and add your idea to my "2 DO" list on top.  :)

Cool. You may even convert me and maybe even others to FutureOS users with this feature. :)

Ah, no. Ain't that easy. And it will take lots of time. Because I know nothing about WiFi. So I would first of all go with the USIfAC (because it's cheap and available). Later other communication devices could be added.

The idea of a "network XROM" I had before, but like usual time is scarce. But maybe one can do something small and working till summer.

Well, I thought a bit more about the topics Networking and Point to Point file transfer. Would it be ok for you (all) to have an extra ROM to manage all that (hopefully one day comfortably)? Or would you prefer to have it all in the base OS?

Aside of sending / receiving files; which functions would be the most desired?

As far as I know, all CPC WiFi options up to now are via an SPI bus, so other than the package size and delays between them you shouldn't need any further information from your side.

Re: FutureOS corner Changes ?
« Reply #658 on: 05:56, 08 June 19 »
Hi GUNHED

After an installation of FutureOS_System_.8, on Boot up the screen colours are changed ?

Is it possible to Make the ROM that changes the screen colours at boot up to leave the Screen defaults as they were ?.

Thanks.  Ray

Of course, just use the installator, it offers an option to select colors for BASIC and for FutureOS.  :)

FutureOS supporting LambdaSpeak III
« Reply #660 on: 23:17, 28 July 19 »
Here is a first version of FutureOS for CPC6128 supporting the LambdaSpeak III multi expansion card. The following OS functions have speech support:

- Copy discs
- Press I / click at I icon
- Press O / click OK icon
- Space key to select media

Let me know what you think and what you miss.

Please update to firmware v40, else it may freeze at startup (if you didn't use !LAMBDA before). The problem is fixed. The !STOP command did WAIT the CPC until the end of time. But the problem is fixed, and the firmware is getting better and bigger.  :)


EDIT: Even better: Take new v41.  :) :) :)

Today (and maybe tomorrow) I do assemble the new update of FutureOS.  :)  If you want me to send you your personal update with personal configuration already adapted, then please PM or email me. Also you can tell me if you want some features of your configuration being altered.  :)

As promised, here comes the update (link, see my signature)

- LambdaSpeak speech support added to OS.
- Clear screen first when starting up, and save RAM bytes &8FFE and &8FFF at start up.
- LambdaSpeak III support enhanced.
- Design of some icons opened up
- Read / write function for LambdaSpeak III RTC added. Support in FutureOS integrated
- Added: Automatic detection of serial interfaces from Schneider, Amstrad, Pace and the USIfAC
- File-Interface improved. Before, in very few cases the wrong page of file was shown. Corrected!
- The SF2 RTC can now be kept in Binary-Mode; this will NOT be changed by OS if ROM A &C114 Bit 2 is set
- Disc-Copy enhanced, ROM A optimized
- Using Disc-Copy the Source and Target drives are now shown as icons after their selection
- SF3 mouse support added. Combined SF2/SF3 mouse support enhanced. Wheel scrolls DIRectory pages now
- Two Discs with Wallpapers added (Disc V and VI: Wallpapers from the biggest Sci-Fi series of the world)
- SF3 write date function enhanced
- If FutureOS ROMs are present ROM A will switch PEN 1 to color 25 (before it was 18). Green friendly ;-)





EDIT: Would be nice if someone could put this into French / Spanish forums too, because I can't. Captcha is killing me (maybe I need a new PC and new browser?).

Would you be interested in adding support for Virtual Display Units to FutureOS?  - I believe at this moment FutureOS doesn't have internet support of the M4 card - but perhaps the Virtual Displays can be used if you call the M4 ROM routines?

No, since I do sadly lack time (job  ::) ) I haven't had time to care about this great expansion completely. But it would be great to support its network capabilities too.

Can you please tell us what exactly is an 'Virtual Display Unit'?

Is it something like a terminal?

I'm interested in the topic for sure.  :)

It is a way to create screens that are using HTML canvas and viewed on every device that is NOT a CPC - but driven by the CPC (or another device).  At the moment it is text only but additional features are being added weekly - graphics soon.  You can send commands to the server as fast as the M4 card allows - but clients watching the screens only get 10 frames per second refresh rate at the moment.

A cpc cannot read the page effectively. Of course it could fetch the page data but not render it.


If you ever had an Amiga 500 with the adapter that let's you use the Amiga CD32 as a display... you might know it.

Nope, no Amigas around here. Only Z80 computers and a 12 years old Laptop for CPC emulation.  ;) :)

However my question was not really on topic I guess, from what I read your project is dedicated to allow the CPC to send 'output' to a variety of other devices. Would be funny to send a .... 'Your CPC took over' to everything around.  :laugh:

Just a short update on my text editor FutureTex ...
The work is proceeding and its basic functions work:
- Insert / Overwrite mode
- 8 or 9 scanlines
- supports all 256 characters
- supported formats at the moment: ASCII, FutureOS, Protext
- Character editor (+ load / save characterset)
- You can work with up to 9 text files at the same time

As usual: Please post your feature requests (if not done before).  :) 8) ;)
