Rich Drushel: Also part of the problem is running all of NetZero's krud from this 486 :-)
Rich Drushel: It seems to be so slow that none of the dumb banner ads have time to load, so I don't see any.
gmk: (PRIVATE) i guess I finally made it here

HLM-AC14: just barely
Ron-AC14: Rich, we gotta stop meeting like this
Rich Drushel: The travel is too expensive this way :-)
Ron-AC14: only in ADAMland
Rich Drushel: Nothing like coming 300+ miles to talk by computer in adjacent rooms.
Ron-AC14: :)
Ron-AC14: rite
HLM-AC14: be nice
Rich Drushel: I just hope that this NetZero thingy holds up on the 486.
Ron-AC14: Is that what Bob is using?
HLM-AC14: it should
Rich Drushel: I think.
Rich Drushel: Herman, I seem to remember that NetZero used to be (still is?) something that if you didn't click on their ads etc. every 5 minutes, you got disconnected.
Rich Drushel: Is this true?
HLM-AC14: yea the idle time out
Ron-AC14: captive market
Rich Drushel: I only want to take them for 3 hours of my "free" monthly 10 hours tonight, and then not use them again for a couple of months :-)
HLM-AC14: I am using ameritech
Ron-AC14: Anybody know if you can connect 2 computers to the phone lines in these rooms?
HLM-AC14: so is GK
Rich Drushel: I would use APKnet dialup but I forfeited the 800-number 56K dialup when I switched to ADSL.
HLM-AC14: we figured out a way to bothh connect in sam e room
moved to room Meeting Place
Rich Drushel: They didn't used to do that, but some new ADSL switchers were giving away their old access to friends.

Dale changed username to Dale-AC14
Dale-AC14: Hi fellow AC14ers.
Ron-AC14: how did you do it HLM?
Rich Drushel: So, they were forced to take away the legacy 56K dialup unless you bought a second account.
Rich Drushel: Hi Dale.
Rich Drushel: But this 486 is so slow, I don't get any banner ad updates, nothing really to click on to tell NetZero that I'm not "idle".
HLM-AC14: I am in data port GK is in jack accross room for phone I guess
Rich Drushel: Must be 2 phone numbers in the room?
HLM-AC14: porbably u know us we had to try
Ron-AC14: hmmm......
Rich Drushel: There is some kind of modem bolted to the underside of my desk in my room here.

Pamela AC14: I'[m in the line of fire, I like to know these things
Daniel Bienvenu: My Story : I'm Daniel Bienvenu. I was too young to play the ColecoVision games the first time but I decided to learn and work very hard to do some games for this game system. In 2000, John Dondzila helped me to release one of my Coleco creation : DACMAN. Now, I'm looking to a simple way to test my games quickly. There is no RAMCART so I need to use a floppy disk but my Adam disk drive doesn't work. So, each time I program new Coleco game I don't know if the result will work on a real Coleco because I use only the emulators.
zonker: before i make a fool of myself(pauses for obvious remarks)
Dale-AC14: I've added you Alan. What was your old address?

HLM-AC14: we are begging
Pamela AC14: swim first
Guy B.: Rich, I think Williams and Bally are still making arcade games. Haven't seen any from Exidy since the 80's.
rich-c: maybe they got bought by someone else, then, or went into other business
Dale-AC14: I don't know about Exidy, but Telegames bought the copyrights to all Coleco branded games.

Ron: :)
Alan Neeley: hehehe
Daniel Bienvenu: Without more informations, I think I can't continue my project.

zonker: dang, why else do we have these younger adamites any way?
rich-c: just sort of paddle from island to island, Zonk

Guy B.: Yep, you guessed right Zonk.
Ron: nope Zonk you were right the first time
Dale-AC14: The thing about most 80's games is that even the owner doesn't really remember that they own the rights.

Rich Drushel: At home I have nice ADSL, it's being away from home that makes me need a little dialup stuff.
zonker: see ya guys.
Pamela AC14: glad to see you Zonker - we miss your personal touch
zonker: 5
zonker: 4
zonker: 3
zonker: 2
zonker: 1
rich-c: come back soon, Zonk
Daniel Bienvenu: Bart? .. the same Bart I saw in pictures of a previous ADAMCON?
Dale-AC14: TTYL Zonker.
zonker: gone!
gmk: nite bart
HLM-AC14: nite Zonk

Daniel Bienvenu: bonne nuit !
George: why is the chat blinking?
FredK.: Salut Zonk!
Dale-AC14: George, people jsut dropped off.
Alan Neeley: Bart Lynch AKA the zonk man has left the building...
rich-c: Bart Lynch (Zonker) was doing a countdown to departure
Pamela AC14: come back soon
Guy B.: Whoa1
Guy B.: Whoa!
Dale-AC14: I see George is left speechless.
rich-c: yes, George, that's the way it works
Ron: An ADaMite counting backwards from 5
George: hi
Rich Drushel: i ii iii iv v...
Daniel Bienvenu: brb
(Guy B. reboots BobS's computer remotely.)
rich-c: cinq, quatre, trois, deux, un...
George: i'm getting stuck
Alan Neeley: wait a minute I thought it was 01, 02, 03, IV, 05...
Rich Drushel: 1 4 7 2 5 8 3 6 9 10
Ron: right Alan
Pamela AC14: George, hwat are you doing?
Ron: Now, I am in a quandry
FredK.: inch,ni,san,chi,go.....ok its not spelt right
Ron: what's 15 XV oF
Rich Drushel: hwat, that is a nice anglo-Saxon form!
Ron: 0F
BobS: Jill says...."throw some stuff out..."
FredK.: James would know!
Dale-AC14: 101 100 011 010 001
Rich Drushel: (Rich picks up Elanor and gives her a heave)
Pamela AC14: ooh, he speaks Roman!
Ron: :)
Ron: right Dale
james: back
james: james would know what?
HLM-AC14: now Alan can count
Guy B.: Let's see. 01,02,03, IV,05,Six,007,VII,09,0ch, IXIII, 14. Right?
Guy B.: XIII for 13.
Alan Neeley: Very good Guy!
FredK.: inch,ni,san,chi,go how its really spelt
Rich Drushel: haha right Guy!
Dale-AC14: Japanese!
George: trying to chat
Dale-AC14: Good stuff.
james: ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku, nana/shich, haji, kyuu, jyuu
Rich Drushel: The next one has got to be F, though...
james: oops. hachi not haji
FredK.: Thats it!!!!!
james: damn fingers
rich-c: depends on which transliteration scheme you prefer, Fred
George: i'm lost again
Rich Drushel: Haji, he was Johnny Quest's friend...
james: i don't much care for romanized japanese though. cumbersome to read/write
BobS: be good Zonk
FredK.: Looks the same fr you ay Rich?
james: it's finally cooled off here and there's a nice breeze. i was getting pretty sick of 35+ humidity weather
rich-c: well, any non-Latin language, the transliteration is arbitrary
HLM-AC14: Zonker is gone wake up
Guy B.: Been a hot summer altogether.
George: HELP!
BobS left chat session
Guy B.: George needs our help.
rich-c: oh, we've had a northern high and nice summer weather last few days
Dale-AC14: Hi George.
Alan Neeley: Hottest in History here in SLC
james: what's wrong george?
Dale-AC14: He may have to reconnect.
james: i don't doubt it. japan has also had a record heatwave. i'm just dreading my next electric bill
Pamela AC14: I'm going to go look over someone's shoulder - my system is so slow that I'm falling way behind
Rich Drushel: Come see my 486, Pam, it's working better now.
Rich Drushel: Room 133, I think Elanor and I are in.
Alan Neeley: But it's a dry heat here in Utah
rich-c: ah yes, the joys of laptops
Guy B.: Tell me about it. Mine was higher than normal and not from the computers, the A/C.
Daniel Bienvenu: I'm back
james: yeah, me too.
Dale-AC14: Pamela, exiting and reentering can make it speed up on scrolling on a slower system.
james: and at 23 cents/kwh hour here it's pricy
George: why is this so slow?
Daniel Bienvenu: I'm looking at the SmartBasic asm I found in your site Rich D
Rich Drushel: Don't laugh too much at it, Daniel :-)
Guy B.: Mine's about .08 and it's been frozen at that rate through 2006.
Rich Drushel: There are parts I would do differently nowadays.
Pamela AC14: where are you Rich?
HLM-AC14: I think it is the chat buffer
rich-c: sometimes when all of us talk at once the display slows down while printing
Rich Drushel: Room 133.
Dale-AC14: George, it keeps the whole cat history, and in IE that bogs down the displayunless your exit and reenter.
FredK.: Guy your alcohool level?
james: lol
Rich Drushel: Knock 2x and say "Joe sent me"
Dale-AC14: (the would be chat history)
Guy B.: No, my rate per kilowatt hour.
Daniel Bienvenu: I'm looking for the ASM code to draw a line on screen... to do a simple vector game like Asteroid for the Coleco game system
Guy B.: I don't drink anyway.
james: guy b, that's really cheap
Ron: Well good people....mine is the first session of the morning
Pamela AC14: OKAY, let me try that
FredK.: jk
Pamela AC14 left chat session
Rich Drushel: IIRC, the line-draw code in SmartBASIC is very poor...ask Dale for a good implementation of Breshenham's Algorithm :-)
George: can i refresh
rich-c: nite Ron. see you at breakfat
Rich Drushel: "breakfat" ??????????????
james: lol
Dale-AC14: Daniel, I'll have to look around, but I know I have C bindings for a really fast line and circle algorithm for the Adam.
moved to room Meeting Place
rich-c: add: s
George: brb
james: breakfats?
Ron: nites all good chat eh?
changed username to Pamela
james: nite ron
Rich Drushel: ROTFL!!!!!!!!!1
HLM-AC14: Dale are you going to archive this chat
Pamela: now let'ssee
Rich Drushel: Yes, all errors recorded for posterity.
Pamela: oh, much better
Guy B.: James, at one time we had 14 cents or something like that a long time ago. But, now our electric is being deregulated, but no one is competeing right now.
Daniel Bienvenu: I think I use only the vdp mode 2 screen mode.
Dale-AC14: I archive them all. I just haven't updated in the archive lately.
Pamela: thanks for the tip, Dale
Daniel Bienvenu: I'm not too familiar with screen mode
rich-c: it's a problem we all share
Ron left chat session
Dale-AC14: Buit I'm off work until Wednesday. So I plan to do some much needed maintenance on
Guy B.: Good Idea Dale.
George left chat session
Rich Drushel: I have a couple of chats from that I can forward to you.
rich-c: that is a relief, Dale
Pamela: It'll be nice to see the archives, Dale.
Rich Drushel: I archived those as well.
Pamela: Plus, can you correct the spelling of discretion?
Rich Drushel: :-)
Dale-AC14: Daniel, I have a bunch of that stuff which I wrote originally for MacAdam I think. It is pretty fast.
Dale-AC14: I also wrote some double buffering code for two color animation.
james: i'm still interested in getting some manuals to get me going programming in asm on the adam
Dale-AC14: It is not really possible to do in full colour. I tried and it didn't really work out satisfactorily.
james: i have a couple of reference guides but they don't do much for the beginner
rich-c: getting a bit of a strain for us old folks here
rich-c: going to have to pack it in for the evening
Pamela: time for bed, Dad?
moved to room Meeting Place
Guy B.: Well folks, it's getting late here. So, I'm going to check my e-mail quickly. Those here at AC14, see you tomorrow. The rest on Wednesday.
rich-c: some time ago, Pam
Pamela: I suppose so
changed username to George
Dale-AC14: James, native Adam, or emulator? I've done lessons on each.
james: i prefer native adam
George: i'm back
FredK.: Rich-C take care and good night sleep
Pamela: nite Guy - good luck tuning out Ron
rich-c: so good night all, Zonk, Rob, real soon again, OK?
Rich Drushel: Dale has done lessons on everything :-)
Daniel Bienvenu: If it's possible for me to use your code to do something like Asteroid for the ColecoVision... Maybe it's too late to think about this kind of game.
Dale-AC14: TDOS based or EOS only?
Pamela: Nite, Dad - nite to Mom too
Dale-AC14: Rich LOL.
Guy B.: Bye Rich C. See you tomorrow.
FredK.: Good night Guy B, c you Wed.
james: i'm interested in doing games
rich-c: colour me gone
james: good night rich
Rich Drushel: Nite Richard
Daniel Bienvenu: bonne nuit!

Daniel Bienvenu: james : oui
Dale-AC14: Daniel, how much of the game can be done with sprites?
Pamela: I've always wondered - what colour is gone, anyway?
Dale-AC14: Just the ship right?
james: cool.
FredK.: Bye George
George: bye, poof
Pamela: bye George
FredK.: James Daniel is from Quebec City.
George left chat session
Dale-AC14: Bye Grorge.
james: beautiful city
Rich Drushel: I should probably also consider going to be soon...
Daniel Bienvenu: Dale - I don't know... maybe all the game could be done with sprites to looks like the Atari 2600 version
Daniel Bienvenu: bonne nuit George
Dale-AC14: That might be pretty easy then.
gmk: I guess all good things come to an end, bye all
Daniel Bienvenu: Dale - But if CV Asteroid can be done like a vector game it will be more beautifull
Pamela: nite George, see in the a.m.
james: dale - i'd like to get started on some basic assembler i guess.
Dale-AC14: I thought the Atari 2600 had very limited sprite capabilities though.
james: it does
gmk left chat session
Daniel Bienvenu: But Atari 2600 have a 256 color palette...
Pamela: okay all, I'm outta here - I'll leave you to talk games
james: 'nite pam!
Dale-AC14: A prue vector version is nicer. I think that 10 frames per second is the best you could do on complex levels though maybe.
Daniel Bienvenu: bonne nuit Pam!
Pamela: Nite James - see you Wednesday
FredK.: Night Pam, till Wed.
Pamela: Bonne nuit, Daniel
james: i hope so. been working ot lately
Rich Drushel: Yeah, time for sleep...good night to all at AC14 and around the world, thanks for stopping in.
james: nite rich
Pamela: Nite Rich
Daniel Bienvenu: Bonne nuit Rich
Rich Drushel: v iv iii ii i 0
FredK.: Rich D, Gute Naght
Rich Drushel: poof
Daniel Bienvenu: poof?
Rich Drushel left chat session
Daniel Bienvenu: is gone
james: too bad the romans didn't have a zero. least i think they didn't.
Pamela: and I'm for bed. See everyone else in the morning
Pamela: sweet dreams to all
Pamela: poof!
Daniel Bienvenu: I think roman use "ONE MINUS ONE" to illustrate the zero
Dale-AC14: Poof means that although we said good bye, we actually mean it this time and won't stickaround anymore.
Pamela left chat session
james: interesting
Daniel Bienvenu: ok! so i will soon say "poof"... if I'm not the last one to quit
Dale-AC14: Alan, have you done anytthing with the Adam emulator?
james: i should go and get some work done while it's cool.
Daniel Bienvenu: Adam emulator? Do you talk about ADAMEM?
Dale-AC14: Yes that is the very one.
Daniel Bienvenu: I think it's the only ADAM emulator
FredK.: James, bid you good night and will drop a word or 2.
james: yes, please do, i always enjoy talking to adam people
Dale-AC14: Actually, there is one other.
FredK.: Need to download one for my XP windows anybody can help?
Dale-AC14: But it is the only one for Linux.
james: so goodbye/night everyone, salut, a prochaine.
FredK.: Salut James!
Daniel Bienvenu: bonne nuit james
james: *poof*
james left chat session
Dale-AC14: Try
Dale-AC14: That is the author's web site for AdamEm.
FredK.: Dale will try but will it work with Win XP? is there a danger
Daniel Bienvenu: I know... Marcel de Kogel
Dale-AC14: There is a bunch of images of files at
FredK.: just download those images?
Daniel Bienvenu: he's the one who help me with my Coleco programming. After he released his Coleco C library, I started to program Coleco games.
Dale-AC14: It works find in Windows 2000 Professional, so I expect that XP will be okay too. (maybe Joystick and sound will be limited).
Daniel Bienvenu: But I still have problem with the SPINNER. All my games to be used with a roller controller *CRASH* or *RESET*
Dale-AC14: I don't mean pictures, but ROMs and other disk images.
FredK.: Dale tks fr the info. will try but just wondered if there where any orders for downloading?
Dale-AC14: I can help you with the spinner.
Dale-AC14: It took me a long time to figure it out.
Dale-AC14: The main trick is to use the correct Interrupt Mode (IM 2 is correct I think).
Dale-AC14: And to "RETN" at the end of the non-maskable interrupt.
Dale-AC14: Look up the IM assembler instruction at Thomas S.'s web site.
Dale-AC14: Fred, I'm not sure what you're asking.
Daniel Bienvenu: I think I have no control on that with my C programming method. I have to find someone who can do the special ASM code to get the spinner values.
Dale-AC14: Daniel, I never got the Hi-C compiler to work under Linux or TDOS under AdamEm.
Daniel Bienvenu: My Z80 asm skill is ... low
Dale-AC14: I'm sure that you can do some inline assembly...
FredK.: Dale, I realise its getting late, maybe for next time.....its just that i do not know how you get an emulator to work once you dowload the files?
Dale-AC14: it would only need to be about 7 well chosen lines.
HLM-AC14 left chat session
Dale-AC14: Fred, the emualtor is on zip files. Under Windows, you really need to have AdamEmMam.
Dale-AC14: It makes it easy to pick the ROM or disks that you use with the emulator.
Daniel Bienvenu: Marcel de Kogel added a method to get the spinner values but it's working only with the emulators. in cart version, the game crash.
FredK.: Dale tks very much, and those I download on the you gave to me....
Dale-AC14: We can talk about it more on another chat.
Dale-AC14: Daniel, I think that the "IM 2" is the trick you need.
FredK.: Dale no problem and tks again.
FredK.: Good night to all,Bonne nuit Daniel.
Daniel Bienvenu: So I will have to re-compile the Marcel de Kogel library? wow!
Dale-AC14: See ya Fred.
Daniel Bienvenu: bonne nuit Fred!
FredK.: *poof*
FredK. left chat session
Dale-AC14: I think that you can avoid that if you make sure that you do it as the first line of your code.
Dale-AC14: Is Alan still here?
Daniel Bienvenu: I don't know
Dale-AC14: Daniel, did you want me to take a peek at Marcel's code?
Daniel Bienvenu: I don't think you have rights to modify his code but if your modification can help me... why not!
Dale-AC14: I'm downloading it now...
Alan Neeley left chat session
Daniel Bienvenu: look at the CRTCV.AS file
Dale-AC14: In his file "adam/" he sets the interrupt mode to 1 (IM 1)
Dale-AC14: But he does not do that for cartridges.
Dale-AC14: If you add to line 185:
Dale-AC14: IM 1
Dale-AC14: I bet it'll fix your problem.
Daniel Bienvenu: .. i don't have this file...
Dale-AC14: (right after the "start_program:" line)
Dale-AC14: You only use the "lib/* files?
Dale-AC14: I got the fro m your web site.
Dale-AC14: The Adam/ is for the Adam interface.
Daniel Bienvenu: I see... but I'm looking in the LIB I used for my creation in the lib folder
Dale-AC14: Do you know how to rebuild the libcv.lib file?
Daniel Bienvenu: I'm not 100% sure but I think it's not difficult
Dale-AC14: Well, that is the easiest way to change it.
Daniel Bienvenu: I use the ZAS to compile the AS files
Dale-AC14: Then to transfer files to the Adam, I've always prefered to use a serial cable (but you need a serial card for your Adam) -- BobS should have one or two around.
Dale-AC14: Daniel, that sounds right to me.
Daniel Bienvenu: it's interresting! I'm looking for a way to test my game.
Dale-AC14: So after you use ZAS, you need to take the output .obj files and make them into a new .lib
Daniel Bienvenu: the libcv.lib ? but the spinner values was in the file ... and the crtcv is not compiled into the libcv.lib file but in the crtcv.obj file
Dale-AC14: Even easier.
Dale-AC14: That should have occured to me.
Daniel Bienvenu: Now, we have to figure out where to modify the coleco library to fix the spinner problem
Dale-AC14: That "IM 1" change should be enough.
Daniel Bienvenu: right after the "start_program:" line?
Dale-AC14: eXACTLY.
Daniel Bienvenu: before the push lines?
Dale-AC14: <tab>IM<tab>1
Dale-AC14: It doesn't really matter. Before the push lines is good
Dale-AC14: start_program:<tab>IM<tab>1
Dale-AC14: start_program: IM 1
Dale-AC14: Actually his code is all lower case (im 1)
Daniel Bienvenu: I notice the "lower case"...
Dale-AC14: I don't know if it matters, but you should probably match what he did.
Dale-AC14: dir
Daniel Bienvenu: I'm not sure I understand what you try to tell me.
Dale-AC14: Oops "dir" was supposed to be for the other window. Sorry.
Daniel Bienvenu: I tried to compile my current project "gamepack" wth the new version of the crtcv.obj and I think it's working. I have to compile one of my other Coleco projects
Daniel Bienvenu: One of my projects who use the spinner values
Dale-AC14: Okay,
Dale-AC14: I'm trying to figure out 22nice.
Daniel Bienvenu: the new gamepack ROM works with MESS emulator. I don't know if it's work with a real coleco
Dale-AC14: Do you have a real Coleco to test it on?
Dale-AC14: I thought I heard that your floppy drive was not responding.
Daniel Bienvenu: To test my game on a real coleco I need to do a cart. but I have no eprom burner. The fastest solution is to use RAMCART. But the only solution I have is by using an adam disk drive. Yes, my adam disk drive doesn't work
Dale-AC14: Right, so no test tonight, I guess.
Daniel Bienvenu: So, the only way I found to test my game before making carts is to ask the one who build the carts to test my game on a real Coleco before.
Dale-AC14: You could email it to me in a zip and I could test it here. But not until tomorrow, I guess.
Daniel Bienvenu: What is your e-mail?
Dale-AC14: Did you see on the Norman G Sipple project to make the joystick into a read only serial port?
Daniel Bienvenu: No, I didn't see that
Dale-AC14: Send it to
Daniel Bienvenu: I'm not 100% but I think a Coleco ADAM don't react the same way as a ColecoVision. I have done an hacked version of a rom to add a special title screen and the DELAY is working only with a real ColecoVision.
Dale-AC14: Sorry I meant Jeff Frohwein:
Daniel Bienvenu: I tested the same rom on an ADAM and the screen freeze
Dale-AC14: The Coleco Adam is 99% the same.
Daniel Bienvenu: I know but for this particular ROM it's not the same
Dale-AC14: The only commercial CV cart that I never could get to work on my Adam is Tennis
Dale-AC14: (which was put out by Telegames).
Daniel Bienvenu: You have Tennis? wow!
Daniel Bienvenu: I don't find any
Daniel Bienvenu: oh.. telegames release
Dale-AC14: Telegames actually had a programmer or two clean up and finish some of the games in around 85 or 86 if I recall correctly.
Dale-AC14: They also added code to make sure the game was running from cart and not some place else.
Daniel Bienvenu: ok! I compile a new version of my Double Breakout project (for use with paddle, roller controller or the spinner on a Super Action joystick...)
Daniel Bienvenu: How you know that about telegames programmers?
Daniel Bienvenu: did you find the information somewhere in the internet?
Dale-AC14: Back then, our MTAG user group had about 150 members...
Daniel Bienvenu: MTAG?
Dale-AC14: And my brother met with the owner of Telegames at the CES show.
Dale-AC14: MTAG is the Metro-Toronto Adam Group (user's group)
Dale-AC14: CES is the Consumer Electronics Show (which my brother Neil was attending for our video store).
Dale-AC14: Anyway he had a chance to see the Telegames CV clone machine, and talk to the owner.
Dale-AC14: I'll look for your email and try it in the morning. I'll email back when I get a moment.
Dale-AC14: The Telegames units and the game titles were carried at Toys R Us in that time frame.
Dale-AC14: I was disapointed that the cart labels were not full colour though.
Dale-AC14: Anyway Jeff Frowhein's setup allows you to using the 1K scratch space area, upload your test code.
Daniel Bienvenu: I send you an e-mail
Daniel Bienvenu: with the rom file I compiled with the new crtcv.obj maded with the modified
Dale-AC14: I'll go to bed now.
Dale-AC14: Goodnight.
Daniel Bienvenu: mee too!
Daniel Bienvenu: booen nuit!
Daniel Bienvenu: bonne nuit!
Daniel Bienvenu: POOF!
Dale-AC14: poof.
