Re: Disney now co-own the ZX Spectrum. Seriously.

I think Disney mostly bought the Hollywood/non-News parts of Fox. The Murdochs are trying to get full control of Sky, not sell parts of it off. I was reading more, and it looks like I was completely wrong! Fox has 39% of Sky and is trying to get full control, but whatever they have at the time the ...

Re: Write binary data to TRD from ASM

Meh. It fails since it's actually doing a 'verify' operation - because guess what, there are actually two variables responsible for this, the second one being #5D10. Neither Rodionov's book nor the disassembly mention that one (I don't even see it listed as a TR-DOS variable), although it's possibl...

Re: Write binary data to TRD from ASM

Heys. This is the scanned version that I'm using. But it's in .DJVU format, not sure if that's useful for google translate and whatnot. Like Ast said, it should be available to read online at zxpress.ru as well, although their OCR quality tends to leave much to be desired. THanks, perfect! Now I ca...

Re: Write binary data to TRD from ASM

I've made a little progress. The error returned in $5D0F was 1 No file . i wasn't padding my filename with spaces in the file descriptor. Now I get error 12 The channel is not open in $5D0F. But I have already been using TR-DOS - the code this is running from is loaded from basic with a TR-Dos call,...

Re: Write binary data to TRD from ASM

Anyway my asm calls aren't working, even Hikaru's reference asm load example. My basic calls work fine. At work now but I will try and debug later.

Re: Write binary data to TRD from ASM

Yay that's it, thanks.

He wrote two different books, ISBN 5-7190-0025-9 (Spectrum and TR-Dos) and 5-87472-004-9 (just Spectrum). The online text is on your link is correct, but the download is linked to the wrong book, ha.

Ta!

Re: Write binary data to TRD from ASM

Ha, thanks! That's the one I have. I translated the TOC (and the first 20 pages), and I think there is nothing about TR-Dos at all in this book. Even the cover says "ZX Spectrum for users and programmers, no mention of TR-Dos.
