Amtrad PC1512 DIP Switch Settings, ROM version

Post by jvernet » Tue 27 Nov, 2018 3:10 pm

Hello,

Is there a way to change DIP Switch setting for Amstrad PC (to change Langage) ?
http://www.seasip.info/AmstradXT/pc1512lnk.html

When running in PC1512 mode, I have Greek caracters instead french accent, even in DOS....

Is there a way, also, to use V2 and V3 ROM. I tried without success to use V3 ROM, renaming thelm to .v1, but it doesn"t work...

One last thing: under PC1512 emulation ,I do not have any cursor....

My recent patch allows you to set the option links to select the display font.

The BIOS language setting is not currently configurable. Lines 23-24 of amstrad.c are where it gets read, and it's currently hardcoded as 7:

Code: Select all

                case 0x379:
                return lpt1_read(port, NULL) | 7;
