Re: Howto run KB9 Basic V 3.0 on Micro-KIM

Interesting indeed! I looked at the KB9 manual and the only thing it said to do before loading was to set the vector addresses 17FA/FB, FC/FD and FE/FF to $1C00. It also says to hit <RUBOUT> rather than <ENTER> to set the baud rate. I'm going to try this, plus CLD/BRK and see if that helps. ...later...

Re: Howto run KB9 Basic V 3.0 on Micro-KIM

It is weird isn't it. I do have the 32k expansion and I/O board on a mini-expander. On your suggestion I pulled out the First Book of KIM memory test and tested $2000-$9FFF...alone and with the expander...and it passed. So, it's not the memory as far as I can tell. Hmmmm...

Thanks!

Re: Howto run KB9 Basic V 3.0 on Micro-KIM

Thanks <maskddingo> for the help. Ok, this time I started from scratch with the log file in this thread, and here's what I did. I first set $17FA/FB and $17FE/FF to $1C00 for good measure. Then, I loaded the file with line settings of 12008N1 with a delay of 20/200 using HyperTerminal PE. Once it lo...

Re: Howto run KB9 Basic V 3.0 on Micro-KIM

Thanks! I will definitely try the 12008N1 and 20/200 settings.

Are you sure about the addresses though? The PAP file shows a load location of $2000 and the instructions show a start of $405E.

Re: Howto run KB9 Basic V 3.0 on Micro-KIM

All -- I just tried the revised KB9 from the above post and I still get stuck at the "MEMORY SIZE?" prompt. No input seems to work (producing a "SYNTAX ERROR"), other than "A" which produces a credits screen (naming Wieland & Gates). It's weird because long ago I ha...

All -- Here's how I got it to work. I use Parallax USB->serial adapters for a lot of things with a lot of success but of the problems I have, it's always when "uploading" something to one of my vintage machines. The below worked for me and the MicroKIM but YMMV. My Hyperterminal configurat...
