átnézte valaki ezeket az újságokat? látom van több basic program bennük. esetleg ha van köztük jó, akkor azt be lehetne izzítani :)
(látom műxik a psd-ből a copy paste, úgyhogy nem kell bepötyögni)
Vigyázat! Szektás vagyok! :)

Software patch of the EXOS bug, funny but useful:

Code: [Select]
5 WHEN EXCEPTION USE REPAIR
10   FOR I=1 TO 2
20     EXT "help wp"
30   NEXT I
40   PRINT "end of program"
45 END WHEN
50 HANDLER REPAIR
60   RETRY
70 END HANDLER

The title is: "Een foutje van BASIC?": Een = a; foutje = fault, mistake; van = of.

You are right. There are programs that seem very interesting, e.g. Envelope generator in the second issue. Who will type them? :D

This is bug of EXT instruction in IS-BASIC. Simplier workaround: 25 GOTO 30
I already sent bugfix for this to ENTERPRESS many years ago. BASIC ROMs in EXOS 2.2+ are bugfixed, and also bugfixed IS-BASIC 2.0/2.1 in ep128emu ROM pack.

It seems interesting! My favourite Polish words are grafika and rom because they are the same in Hungarian. Pity that I don't understand Polish.

I have the same with Hungarian.
That's why I had to write something in Polish :mrgreen:

An Spanish  magazine(thanks Ron for the PDF), "Ordenador Popular" June 1985 Issue 26, with an extensive comparative of several 64KB microcomputers on pages 26-46.  

A full page advertisement of the EP64 on page 31.

24606-0

The Enterprise picture in the comparative is flipped horizontally....




But there are some things on the advert that give tips of what they are advertising, EP64 or EP128?

The cartridge doesn't have the sticker, no mention of the total Ram is indicated except the "SYXTY FOUR" sticker, and the joystick cap is still green. Two mentions to capacities that only are possible on an EP128 on interlace mode: 50 lines x 84 columns, and the max resolution, 672x512 pixels.

Great! You have made an excellent work extracting the text of that bad scanning, and the OCR to Spanish is correct.

It is a long article of 11 pages, but had an excessive number of adverts, more than half of it....

Thanks for flipping the Enterprise picture.
