Re: AutoVIDC 2.08 available for testing

I've dropped in into ADFFS and will do some testing during the week.

In the !Run I'm simply checking if AutoVIDC is loaded and forcing it if not. Should I also be checking the version number and reloading if an older one is present?

Re: Extending RO3.1 OS_DynamicArea

Does that still work with additional MEMC chips? I don't have one to confirm. The page counter in RO 3.1 is a byte value, which by my reckoning limits it to 8192KB with 32KB pages. How does it deal with 3 MEMC's? I'd say several modules would need to be updated before before additional MEMC's would ...

Re: Hanging when shelling out with 1.6MB floppy mounted

I've been looking into the hanging on RO3.5 this morning, from recording what happens when the WIMP shuts down, things happen slightly differently if an F format floppy is mounted: E Format: 1. MiscOp 5 is called to eject the floppy F Format: 1. MiscOp 1 is called to see if the floppy has changed 2....

Extending RO3.1 OS_DynamicArea

As DA's are now in application space, I could extend OS_DynamicArea to support multiple DA's. The only caveat being pre-allocating each DA to it's maximum size on machines where there could be the possibility of a DA conflicting with Application space. For example, if two DA's are allocated they map...

DA in Application space on a 16mb RO3.1 machine

Pre-allocating memory when there's more than 14mb in Application space isn't straight forward, due to the overlapping address space. A possible solution is: Increase an official RO DA to 2mb (to ensure the top 2mb of application space isn't mapped) Allocate 2mb to ADFFS Decrease RO DA back to it's o...

Re: LCDGameModes v0.11

I don't have a problem with any of that, we can avoid pulling bits we don't need into ADFFS by modularising the code so we only pull in the core code and main * command to turn it on/off. ADFFS currently has the *LCDgm command within it. We should strip that out and pull it in from the LCDgm code vi...

Re: Hanging when shelling out with 1.6MB floppy mounted

Good point, I'll add that. Do any 16mb machines exist? And if they do, what's the likelyhood they'll be using ADFFS? I think I have better odds on winning the lottery!

Re: AutoVIDC 2.08 available for testing

I'll drop it in with ADFFS and do some testing, I need to do quite a lot on the A440/1 to confirm moving the DA into application space doesn't cause any side effects.

Re: Now hands back memory for APD's

I've just fixed that bug, grab 2.13l from the dev site.

Re: Hanging when shelling out with 1.6MB floppy mounted

I've put the updated source and ADFFS module (2.13l) into the dev area should you wish to try it with the DA in application space.
