IKBD RTC clock sync

Postby tzok » Mon Sep 03, 2018 2:40 pm

TOS 2.06 synchronizes XBIOS clock with IKBD after each reset, so when you set the clock once in Control Panel, it is still set after reboot, until you won't power off the computer. However in TOS 1.xx it doesn't work. Only on STe with TOS 1.06 and 1.62 you may use STE_FIX.PRG in auto folder to do that (aside of patching medium resolution bug on TOS 1.06). Is there any similar program which does the same but runs on ST(f) machines? I know that there are some versions of Y2K fix, but I'm looking for one that doesn't alter the IKBD date... no date rolling, no XBIOS patching.

I'll answer to myself. ST version of Atari Control Panel does sync the TOS time with IKBD on load, only STe version doesn't do that. Apparently they forgot to fix that in TOS 1.62, as STE_FIX, which is meant solely for 1.06 does that, while TOS 1.62 still doesn't sync the clock without the STE_FIX.
