HxC manager program
« on: 2018.July.18. 16:46:09 »
Is there a link to the latest version of the HxC manager program?

And hopefully also a short description on how it works :-)

Thank you in advance.

I remember HxC manager as a program, but you already have the HxC.Rom on the emulator.

Of course, you need a way to put Roms on the system...

EXDOS required, this is a additional utility for change the mounted image on a HxC.

Thank you very much :-D

However, it has been MANY years since I last worked with an Enterprise, so could you - or someone else - tell me in more detail how I run HxC manager?

As far as I know HxC.rom is not included on the Exdos controller. And Pear does not supply a version with (as far as I understood from him - excuse me in advance if I understood this wrong).

Is this the way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-624bEIkVo I know that my version is not the slim version but loading EPDOS (where do I get that BTW?) and then loading HxC manager?

In the ROM of the card at now is EXDOS only.
In addition, to see additional applications in ROM (e.g. HxC), you will need EXOS in version at least 2.2 (Zozo, please correct me if I've got something mixed up).

Your EXDOS-Compact from Pear has space for a lot of extra Roms. I think that Zozo will provide you an image to program the FlashRom included.

Using Epdos is the "cheap" way for an Enterprise with spare memory to install a virtual Rom, that will last until the next hard reset. You don't need that method, but Epdos is indeed a great file manager with a lot of extras. Ask Zozo to include it on the Roms compilation.

All HxC versions behave the same.

.--------

Pear: Zozo has provided John the Enterprise, so surely it has inside installed the most actual EXOS Rom, no problem with that.

I did not know.
John did not write me that the Flash should be on the card and I sent him a simple EPROM.
Sorry :(

My bad. Misunderstood the concept. Can I buy from you (and replace my self) the Flashrom?

Yes. Another option: also exist cartridge version of my Memory Test (which is built in to the EXOS 2.4), needed to put 04h segment at the cartridge. (And exist a loadable version, but in this way need to run after every cold reset.)

John Fante got a machine with EXOS 2.4.

It will be cheaper to buy any (almost) Flash memory on local than to send from foreign.
If you have a Flash memory programmer, you can replace the chip itself (the description of the jumper setting is on the wiki).

If you do not have the right tools, then of course there is no problem.
I can send Flash memory with any content.
You do not have to send to me anything back, it does not make sense :)

Zozo(and others, but mainly...) has improved very much the computer with his EXOS and EXDOS revisions, adding new characteristics and compatibility  with new hardware without losing(but incrementing...) the old exciting feelings when managing this lovable computer.
