2463Patches to Run Altair BASIC on Z-80
- Jun 10, 2011Does anyone here remember the patches necessary to run the various versions of Altair BASIC (4K, 8K and Extended - ver 4.0 and later) on a Z-80? They involve the Status byte after certain arithmetic operations. When I replace my 8080A CPU card with a Z-80 card, I can't assign a value to single precision variables. Ex:
You type: A=5:PRINT A
Altair prints 0, should print 5
You type FOR I=1 TO 10:PRINT I;:NEXT I
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 ....
Loop never ends since I is never incremented.
Please help! TIA
