In low res you have to remove the lower border. :-)

Just to note that error numbers are negative. So, for instance 'Drive not ready' is -2. It is what you get in register d0 after TOS function call.

I'm not sure if there's a good answer for that ;) I'd be happy with a TOS bomb shower curtain...

Yep, but you have to use a drawing program to get the effect. The real TOS doesn't line wrap bombs. At the end of line the next bomb will be displayed at the start of the line, one scanline lower. You can see the effect by using the Terrorst support option of UNARJ 2.41 in the ARJBETA package.

Ahh, so this explains the conditions when, during a crash, a complete horizontal line of bombs appears, but seems to be flickering and redrawing on top of itself vertically? I used to see this sometimes when my old STE with damaged SIMMs lost the plot (usually it was a much more boring colour-vomit pattern being displayed).

It is part of the effect. You can also generate vertical lines:
This is TOS 1.04 and 255 bombs (unarj -~b255):

and with woo many bombs (unarj -~b256):

Looks a bit like a memory error - have you tried dropping the machine or eh... having a look inside the case to check if they're seated correctly? :D I used to just drop my STfm to 'fix' it for a while, but that's probably not the best solution.

Hi ! Sorry to go up an old thread !

I encountered an error # 69 under Magic6.20 , and I don't know what that means ...
The problem occurs when VT52 launches any .TTP


I saw this link : http://toshyp.atari.org/en/005003.html

Code: Select all

-69 EXCPT    68000 exception (bombs)
-69 EXCPT    Terminated with bombs

But I don't understand why I have this error... And I have no bomb !

P.S : Under Aranym + Magic6.20 + Tos404

Thanks in advance !
