This happens, if you define hl as a label with the value #0000

WinApe is doing everything correctly.

Quote from: eto on Today at 15:19The Pico can act as a USB keyboard. So you can connect the notebook keyboard pins to the GPIO pins, install some software and use the keyboard as a USB keyboard through the Pico. 

here it is done with retro computer keyboards, but it should be similar for your keyboard.
Thanks for the nice video @eto. At least I got an idea how to proceed.
I can confirm there will be a .dsk file of the type-in available too. I've just added it to my website, ready for when the magazine comes out. The link is in the magazine, and I'll put a public link on my website when the magazine's out too.
I bought these: HERMA 4355 from here

They are for 3.5" discs but they are close enough to match 3" disks. See picture attached. There is a small gap. It's not perfect but it looks SO much better than anything I cut on my own.

Seems there are counterparts with the same dimensions: AVERY 3661, Printation 4279 3661

Hmm 5 years without reporting any new version of FutureOS on my web site :doh:

Where was I ?

Well sorry, it's corrected.

I'd like to print some custom colour labels for my 3" disks, so if anyone has any templates to help out, that would be fantastic.

Otherwise I'll find a ruler and see if I can make something...
How do you know the internal construction of the transformer and the phases?? Did you measure these with a scope? Because they definitely don't make sense and you've mark an AC line with "+9V" ?? How does that work?

I suspect the internal coils of the transformer are very different from what you have in your schematic. My guess is that the coils aren't symetrically connected to the pins as you have assumed.

Quote from: HAL6128 on Today at 14:21Could this be driven by a Raspberry Pico connected through the GPIO (from 1 to 19) or similar (3.3V) ? I assume a driver should translate the signals to PS/2 conform serial signal through another GPIO (data line). But a PS/2 keyboard needs 5V?

Shooting sparrows with a cannon. Even a cheap Arduino can easily manage that.

hl is in lower case so i guess this assembler lets you use hl as label or variable or symbol and you declared something related to this elsewhere

Hi all,

I have a problem with WinApe and I am not sure if I am seeing ghosts (sorry for the very bad translation from german).

I have this nice Assembler code (only a fraction of it):

org #8000

LD DE,&00
mainLoop: ;#8003 ;while StartAddress < EndAddress
PUSH IX ;Copy current Address to
POP     HL ;HL
LD      A,L ;Check if HL<BC
RET NC ;if HL<BC return (end address before start adress)
ADD HL,DE   ;Add offset to HL
CALL printAddress ;Print Address

This compiles perfectly. Looking at the debugger view it looks like that I am at breakpoint at #8000:

So where it should read LD DE,0000 it reads LD DE,hl ??

The assembler did the right thing (11 00 00) is excatly the opcode for LD DE,0000

Also if I disassemble the code, it turns back into LD DE,#0000

That is absolutely strange and I never had it.

Anyone has any idea?
