Thanks. I will see that...  If it's work it will be the best solution ;D

EDIT : Where can I download the source code of TIMEROM ans  the 63 KB Dobbertin CP/M 2.2 (ver 1.4) ?
I found the Dk'Tronics and Vortex CPM 2.2 version but no Dobbertin 2.2 (1.4) version.

- See here (wiki)
- See my homepage (
- Write me an email :-)

I've got a fairly basic digital multimeter but nothing else unfortunately. I probably should get something a bit more up to date.

There is no built-in pause option, but that's probably because you can already do it without :).
Simply call the "stop" function. It only stops the sound and never resets anything in the song. Then, when you want to resume the song, simple call the play function again. I didn't test it, but it should work :).
After the end of the CPC era and the rise of Internet, emulators and great websites as CPC Power, CPC Rulez, CPC Reviews, we french CPC lovers discovered so much little gems  ::)  !

Worked both ways as they've helped UK CPC lovers find out about the gems never seen in the UK.
As a linux user I have tried to use AmstradUtilityII.exe with little luck. Sometimes it works under WINE but other does not.

So, I decided to get Wireshark and do a python script that now has receiveFromCPC and Terminal options. The other options I guess are more difficult to implement that just sniffing network traffic.
It also checks the AMSDOS header of the downloaded file if any.
To get a file from the CPC just call first "python -r -p YOURPORT"
(change extension from .txt to .py because py files are not allowed in attachments)

Hi again,
Do Arkos tracker has a pause option for the song being played?
I am asking because I am experimentining in making a something like text-adventure, that will include loading SCRs many times. It seems that when AMSTRAD plays the song and simultaneously tries to load the SCR, we don't hear the song in the proper way. One solution could be the pause, I have other solutions in mind also, but I thought that maybe a pause could an option if it is available.

Hi Guys

It had to happen, but I've taken the last order of C4CPC that I can provide.
The current availability of component does not allow me to make any forecast on when I'll be able to make a new batch.

Graphics entry at the RESET30 demoparty in 2018.
The first image displayed is a CPC screen using the standard palette, the second screen uses the enhanced Plus palette.                     
Standard palette @ 0:14                               Plus palette @0:39


Not emulated - original hardware and software.

Please note that  the aspect ratio for this YouTube video is 16:9 but the CPC monitor
has an aspect ratio of 4:3 so you may wish to adjust your viewing device accordingly.
