DM41X V1.12a / DMCP 3.19 update

Post by grsbanks »

DM41X v1.12a:

Fixes:
  • ALARM wakeup followed by no key-press prevented auto power-off
  • SHIFT no longer clears error messages in AM screen (allowing the user to make a screenshot)
  • Module loader: Now allows multiple ROM modules in a single .mod file with ANY placement
  • Minor BEEP glitch fixed
New features/changes:
  • Basic CST implementation (both CST and CST edit part including save/load of labels) See here for details.
  • New allocation of RAM pages - HEPAX RAM pages should be preserved after HEPAX module relocation
  • Load/Save of RAM pages (see here)
  • Allow to jump from ModMap screen to AM
  • F6 in AM screen now clears the active modules list
  • F6 in 'Manage Modules' screen now clears all modules from flash area
  • Added printer line delay to setup menu
  • Changed bank0...bank3 to bank1...bank4 labels in ROM MAP screen
  • Removed creation of `/rominit.log' by Module Loader
User Manual additions and updates:
  • Custom Menu (CST) Chapter
  • Updated 'RAM Pages' section
  • Added 'Printer Line Delay' secion
  • "Active modules" and "Manage Modules in Flash" menu and screen changes
  • Various other fixes: typos, cleanup, phrasing, added notes
The user manual is available at: https://www.swissmicros.com/dm41x/doc/d ... er_manual/

DMCP V3.19
  • Fixed a problem with bad key state after wake-up
  • USB FAT disk mode now reports a unique disk ID
Known bug

There is a known bug in the module loader. Any module loaded after HEP-MEM.mod will clobber RAM pages set up by the RAM-only module. The work-around that we suggest you use for this is to load the 8K RAM module last of all.

The firmware is available in the usual place.

Attached below is a sample key file (copy to the new /KEYS folder in the FAT - create the folder if not available yet) to illustrate some examples of commands. Note the file was zipped to allow adding as an attachment here.

There are no 'rules' of how to assign commands, any command can be bound to any of the available keys.

In some cases, I matched the starting letters (A for ALENG), in others, when the starting letter is not available, I matched on some other mnemonic reminder (N to TRNG - time based random Number generator) and others based on convenience and easy access ([shift]-[Alpha] for PACK).

Also, note that these assignments also work in PRGM mode, so that pressing [CST] [A] will insert the ALENG command into the next program statement.

One can have many key files available in the /KEYS folder and load them when needed, so for example you could create a key file for each module that contains long or complex command names; then when choosing to use that module, you load the associated key file, somewhat analogous to installing an overlay for that module.

I'll create a thread elsewhere here for folks to share key files they've created.

Enjoy this new feature!

I just ran into a problem after updating.

When I plug in the AMC OSX Module (R51) the 41X Locks up and will only respond to the [ON] key to power off.
Attempting to turn it back on results in immediate power off.
I can only power on with with [ON]+[<-] to MEMORY LOST.

Removing AMC OSX restores normal function.

UPDATE: The Page 7 Version of AMC OSX Works OK.

I've been assured that the latest versions of LIB4 and OSX do work with the 41X. Do you have the latest versions from here?
