If you wish to stick with Pyradev, maybe you can contact the author(s) and ask them to open-source the code,
like it was done by Pascal Seguy with DAMS: https://github.com/pseguy/dams

Now Tasks can be saved too. After that they can be continued or executed on other computers. Or in parallel. The task will know to enter 'save mode' and wait until it becomes saved.

I have installed futureos in my m4 roms, 10, 11, 12, 13 an it boots with 4 lines of future os.


I get an A and B icon.


In reality i have UniDOS with M4 (usually configured as A:), X-Mass (sometimes configured as b)


What can i do di futureos?

It can access floppy discs and old harddiscs from the 80ies. Newer mass storage devices since the early 2000 are not supported, you can't load files from them.

What exactly is your question?
Maybe the Manual on the www.FutureOS.de homepage can help you.

In general FutureOS supports most hardware for the CPC, provides preemptive cooperative multitasking, true freedom in programming applications, lots of special features you'll find nowhere else and very quick OS functions.

Unidos picked up some ideas of FutureOS: Using multiple formats and devices.


However, just take a look right here:

Duke never told me, that the M4 Board has a realtime clock. Where can I find it?

It's a secret!  8)

The M4 does indeed have an RTC. Just read the M4 documentation. You can find all the needed information at the official M4 homepage.
Or just ask Duke. He can't tell you if you don't ask.  ;) 8)

Prodatron kindly informed me about an problem. But this can be solved.

In case you're using FutureOS and the M4 card, then please use the native installer for FutureOS.
It will recognize the M4 card and set the M4 clock as active automatically.

Let me know if something else doesn't work (everything described in the manual is there. If you don't find it in real life, let me know and we'll fix it).

Do you use a M4 card and have installed FutureOS on it?
Did you have any trouble installing it?
Please let me know!  :) :) :)

Well, it works with the MultiPlay. But in Joystick mode.

I was never able to get an Amiga mouse, so I did not implement the mouse protocol.
But you can use any kind of joystick with the MultiPlay.

If I ever get managed to own such an rare Amiga mouse then I can implement the proportional mouse protocol too, but I don't want to do that without having the ability to test.

All expansions being supported by FutureOS are deeply tested and verified working.
And I want to keep that good practice.  :) :) :)

Have you implemented Atari mouse? If yes, the Amiga is identical, only pin 1 and pin 4 are switched.

With a simple adapter you can then use an Atari mouse to test it OR Zhulien can use the adapter to use the Amiga mouse without the need to add it to FutureOs.

WoooHooo!!!  :) :) :) :)  Actually, I do have an Atari mouse! So I can use the Atari mouse instead of the Amiga mouse, just by making an adapter? Cool!

All I need is an adapter to exchange the PINs 1 and 4, right?
(Does somebody have pictures, schemes or similar of that?)


BTW: There is a really cool way to add an Atari mouse to the CPC using its joystick port. And guess what: The mouse is still proportional, it was published in the Schneider Magazin and it's in the cpcwiki. See: https://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Atari-ST_mouse_adapter

Sadly I can't access it. Something about a missing certificate.
Could you post it here please?

Oh, is there an error? See pin signals at lower end of picture. Probably a typo?


Thank you a lot - I will use it now.  :) :) :)

Naming of Y/X etc. is confusing. In fact only pin1 and pin4 are swapped.

FutureOS corner: Tasker successfully finished :-)

The project 'Caruh' has been successfully finished.
Now you have full cooperative preemptive inspired Multitasking for FutureOS.


What's left to be done? Translate German to English Manual and get some Apps on the start.
