Updated Xroar script and GEMUS to use xroar -type command.
dragon (rc4).zip

Now works with AZERTY or any other EU keyboard.

Thanks to Subone for pointing out the error and testing. :wink:
Was a pleasure ... Thanks for your work :D

Just updated setup to (RC5)

Fixes incorrect GEMUS in approx 20 Games.

New script for Xroar.
It now uses GEMUS only, no more auto guess loading.
re-tested EVERY game.

fixed a few files to work in both emulators.

enjoy the update! :wink:

That game is there but it needs relinking with the one in update (rc5)

Hello Mad

Thanks for uploading the Dragon Gamebase, great gamebase.

I notice that you have included mc-10 files as well. Can you tell me how you converted the mc10 files to cas for the Dragon as I have been trying to do this for a while. I have some mc10 files that will work with the vmc m10 emulator but not the xroar emulator for the Dragon.

Many Thanks.

S. Stimer

Hi Stan,

Jim Gerrie did all the MC-10 conversions for TRS80 / Dragon / Coco.
I just put an autorun boot fle on them. :)

It's possible to load a BASIC text listing into XROAR.
rename the text file to .ASC
attach it as a CASSETTE.
type CLOAD to load it.

attach an output tape (create a blank CAS file)
enable the rewrite option.
type CSAVE "FILENAME"

Xroar 0.36 not working with script.what has changed?

The new emulator code used incorrect path "/" instead of "\" in the Windows build. ;)
This caused the command to terminate on the file attached.

It was fixed by sixxie in yesterday afternoons snapshot v0.37.
The script does need a small tweak for the updated type commands...
\n [new line] should be changed to \r [return]
and quotes should now be inside quotes (3 quotes to type 1 quote)

example
Add_CLP( -type RUN"""DISCUP.BIN"""\r)
Add_CLP( -type BOOT\r)

new working build here...

No, it's just my confusion with the numbers. :wink:

The temp folder is the place for the WIP unreleased next version 0.37.
the windows command-line fix was in 0.36.110.
so anythng above that should be good.

; xroar 0.36 path uses incorrect slash "/" for gamebase to attach files in Windows.

; All -type filenames in GEMUS need to be in UPPERCASE!!!

; PLEASE SET YOUR EMULATOR PROPERTIES AS FOLLOWS:
;
; Emulator File: XRoar.exe
; Use Short Filenames: no
; File Types: cas;pak;dtx;dgn;s19;vdk;sna
; (Compressed File Types: ZIP)

; If a Game needs a specific machine use the following keytypes:

; machine=coco     - Tandy Colour Computer (PAL

; Startup keytypes:
; Startup=cload        - Basic Application (may require RUN)
; Startup=cloadm       - Machine Code Application (Autostarting)

;Some games require commands to be entered before they can load correctly

Ah, thought you might have been using some other version as I could'nt get it to work - then I realised the new emulator archive doesn't come with any of the system .rom files so copied them over from the old version of xroar and got it working, cheers .mad.
