Sitenotice: 11/29/2018: The wiki is back. It turns out, some anti-virus product on my web server had an issue with the latest version of PHP. My server techs have resolved this issue, and things should be working again. During the investigation, I did restore to a backup from September. There is a chance that any changes done since then were lost, but I do not recall any edits. --OS-9 Al

8/30/2016: Massive re-work is being done on the InfoBox Templates. Read that page to keep up with the plan for that, and adding better keyword tags (categories) to all the pages. --OS-9 Al (talk) 15:28, 31 August 2016 (CDT)

80 Column mode for Disk Edtasm+ with a CoCo3

From CoCopedia - The Tandy/Radio Shack Color Computer Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This patch will autostart the Disk Edtasm program in a 80 column mode.

Load in the DOS/BAS program from the Edtasm disk. Add these two lines;

0 WIDTH80:PALETTE 0,63:ATTR 0,0:CLS1
2 REMEDTASM

Save the DOS/BAS program back to disk. Be sure you do this to your working copy, not your original disk.

The next time you run DOS/BAS, it will be 80 columns wide, black characters on a white screen. If you are running out of buffer space, edit line 2 to load EDTASMOV instead of EDTASM, gives a little extra room for editing. See my fuzzy screenshot below for a typical screen in this mode.
