Zeus paging

Post by djnzx48 » Thu Feb 21, 2019 2:24 am

Sorry guys, it's me again with another Zeus question. Anyway, I'm having trouble getting memory paging to work properly on a 128 machine. Here's some example code:

Code: Select all

zeusemulate "128K"

org $c000
disp zeuspage(1) - *	; page 1

db "THIS IS A TEST: BANK 1"

org $c000
disp zeuspage(6) - *	; page 6

db "THIS IS A TEST: BANK 6"

output_bin "bank1.txt", zeuspage(1), 22	; output 22 bytes from page 1
When I assemble this with the Zeus IDE, I get "THIS IS A TEST: BANK 1" (which is the desired output). However, if I instead use command-line Zeus, I get "THIS IS A TEST: BANK 6", which is wrong. It seems like instead of just going into bank 6, the second test message overwrites memory in other banks as well. Does anyone know what's going on here?

Weird, the Zeus site (desdes.com) seems to be down at the moment. Has the domain expired or something?

Well, the latest snapshot from the Internet Archive:

https://web.archive.org/web/20190115023 ... esdes.com/

shows that the site has not been updated since 10.10.2010, so it's likely that the domain has expired. If the site doesn't surface in the next few days/weeks, it's more than likely.

It's odd, because some of the other pages were updated only this year (I downloaded a tape file viewer from there a few days ago). But hopefully it'll be fixed sooner or later.

It's working for me at the moment...

Working for me too now, maybe it was just a temporary problem with the website's server.

Yeah, looks like it's back to normal. The paging problem turned out to be a bug in ZCL that's been fixed for the next release, so I've got it working again now ;)
