Hi Guys, I am planning to release SymbOS 3.0 soon in May, so it's time to remove the last issues for the Enterprise as well!
The two important things on my ToDo list regarding the EP are currently these ones:
- fix the FDC timing issues
- add full support for the EnterMice
I don't remember about any other EP-related critical bugs, but maybe I missed something?


HDD support...? :-) (Ok, not the bug... But i miss him! :-) )

While waiting for Prodatron to re-write the final version 3.0 of his fantastic operative system, I could not resist ....

I have patched SymbOS to work with EnterMice. I made it dirty-editing the "symbos.bin" file with an Hex editor...

Only the movement, the main button is still the right one, like in the Boxsoft version.


Un-compress the files on the root directory of the SD. But only the "symbos.bin" has been modified.


EDIT: EnteMice WIKI updated.

I've been thinking about the sound apps on SymbOS. Maybe someone can convert them to Dave use, if the Z80 code is at hand.

Prodatron can't do everything...

It seems that only the Speech app uses some form of sound. Or at least I have not found it on the source.

I've found a pdf file explaining SymbOS 3.0 capabilities. Enterprise ones included.

http://www.google.es/url?q=http://members.home.nl/evanzanten/msxorg/SymbOS%25203%2520install%2520user%2520and%2520install%2520guide.pdf&sa=U&ved=0ahUKEwjkiNOV3qjNAhWGAxoKHRTtBDcQFggcMAY&usg=AFQjCNH4UggqB69riNJTqcUysMD_FY0eDg

On the other hand, there is a sound app called SymAmp to play tracker sounds on AY provided computers, also Mp3 on some higher equipment. I can't find the source.

As the PDF file is too large to be uploaded to the forum, I have uploaded it to FTP.

Anyway, I have found a Sorcery map on the FTP. I didn't know that.

Hi guys, sorry for being silent for such a long time again.
I made a break of about 5 month regarding Z80 activities, but I guess I am back now. I finished a CPU meter widget...

...to get back into the material, that was a nice little re-entry project.
TBH I am f*ing impressed by Gflorez mouse driver patch! That's awesome!
Because of the CPU meter widget I am now working on a weather widget, as I am currently into this topic. Next step will be finishing the 3.0 release version of SymbOS, and it seems, the main work for this are the EP modifications (especially the floppy disc driver and the mouse driver).
Anyway I will be more than happy to release 3.0 this year... (now it's 10 years ago when 1.0 has been released)

Nah! it was very easy, I only searched for the Boxsoft routine on the SymbOS.bin file with an HEX editor. Then I poked the routine for EnterMice use. Only the movement was possible, not the main button, that remained at the right.

Thanks for your efforts...

I think the mouse driver modifications will be very easy for you if the old Boxsoft routine is straightly replaced by the EnterMice modified one.

It parses correctly the three extra buttons and wheel of a PS/2 mouse, following NYYRIKKI(and you) MSX mouse extended protocol.

The Enterprise port of Symbos has a new app, Speech, ported from the CPC only app.

Remember, this is not an official or definitive Prodatron app, only an Hex-editor dirty modified  app.

It works. Thanks Geco for his Dave routines. He is the brain that has translated the CPC sound(AY) to Enterprise sound(Dave).

The disassembly doesn't produce a working app, but is put here to show Prodatron how to add Enterprise sound to the Speech app.


Installation: just only replace the original file with this executable on the Symbos dir.

Usage: execute the app inside SymbOS, write a text in English and click on "Say". You can also write a string of allophones and click on "Speak". Something like stereo balance can be selected with "Left", "Center" or "Right". The pitch slider lets you make the speech more "masculine" or "feminine".

I have to do a list of allophones. If you put a "?" or a "." at the end of the sentence, the intonation changes accordingly. This can't be done with Speakeasy, as the pitch is fixed on the little Rom inside the SP0256-AL2 chip.

Enjoy!
