Hello!
« on: 2018.February.11. 03:31:24 »
Hello everyone! let me introduce myself!

My name's Keith, I started using the Amstrad CPC when I was young, and learned programming on it in my childhood... over the last few years I've come back to the 8 bits as a hobby, and I came across the Enterprise, as it occasionally gets mentioned (positively) in the CPC community!

I'm currently developing an 8 bit Bullet-Hell shooter for the Amstrad CPC, ZX Spectrum and MSX... and as a side project I'm writing some Z80 tutorials with accompanying youtube videos.

I'm planning to include the Enterprise in the tutorials, as it looks like a great system, and its display capabilities match the CPC far more than the MSX or Spectrum... if possible I would like to bring my Chibi Akumas game to the enterprise in the future too!

I only started learning Enterprise development this week, so I'm still in the earliest of days! but I'm impressed with the hardware capabilities of the system, and I'm hoping I can make Z80 programing accessible to beginners, and help people have a little fun with these old systems!... and maybe I'll be able to bring the Enterprise to some other people who (like me) have never even heard of it!

Hello Keith56.

Your enthusiasm is welcome!

This web page is mainly written in Hungarian, but it has a pretty English section where almost all the Hungarian topics are mirrored. The web page itself has a long story, some decades now, so happy digging...

The best font of technical knowledge about the Enterprise computers is on the official English technical book and bulletins, preserved here. But you can ask freely your doubts and somebody will kindly answer you.

But first of all, to write programs for the computer, you need an Enterprise of your own... and the most similar thing is the up-to-date EP128emu emulator written by IstvanV, a member of this forum. You can download it from here.

It is very nice to meet someone who wants to learn and spread his knowledge.

Hello Keith56!
Welcome to Enterprise Users!
Congratulations on your upgrades and we are confident of writing programs to Enterprise!
Jörn Mika (A.K.A: Prodatron) first developed the SymbOS (Multitasking operating system) for CPC.
He has also been developing and upgrading it for Enterprise.
Here at the forum many people will help you!

I was born in the UK, but I've been living in Japan for 5 years now.

I've got EP128emu up and running - it's really good... and I've managed to write 'hello world' in ASM - so I'm off to a good start!

Thanks for those document links, gflorez... I had not come across that page in my searching... looks like I have a lot to read!

You have other documents and books on the same web page(Zozo's Enterprise page) and on the Hungarian Z80 Museum page.

Wow, you want to program it right now.... ask if you need answers. There are some threads about how to begin to assemble for the Enterprise, for example this.

By the way, Geco, another of the web members, made a CPC64 emulator for the Enterprise. You can try some of your 64KB only programs on it, but using the Enterprise file system,  not CPC disk images. When you make a CAT command on basic on the the CPC emulator it switches to an Enterprise file handler. Then you select a program and it returns to the emulation.

On the EP128emu installation you will find a "disk" directory with some zipped example images of floppys and partitioned HD(FAT12=32MB). Fill them with programs and use them on the emulator. There is  a "config" directory with a lot of example configurations. And also a "roms" directory with all the most important Roms you may need to make your own Enterprise configuration.

Also you have Zozo's SD image filled with a lot of programs, games and demos.

Hello Keith.
Welcome here :)
I do not think any of your 64Kb program will run on CPCemu, because only those games are running on it which are using ROM calls.
I read you have successfully printed "Hello World" , I think you managed it with your own LPT :)
If you have any question, please ask it, we will try to answer :)
We are looking forward for EP version of Chibi Akumas  :)

I hope you will make some extras in EP version. We love the conversions which uses some EP features. For example palette changing per raster line etc.

For example, a Mojon Twins game on EP:

Someone should link the system friendly start up and exit assembly code that, I think, Zozo posted years ago.
