KOS - OTz80
« on: August 07, 2010, 12:02:16 am »
If we are running KOS on this, then I will lead the software dev team.  We will plan and discuss how the firmware should be modeled to work well with the hardware.  Post here if you want on the team.
All development will be done on the TI version until a viable prototype hits my hands.

Dev Team:
-Drew "Sir Cmpwn" DeVault (Dev Lead)
-Nathaniel "Eeems" van Diepen (Dev)

Testers:
-Raylin
-matthias1992
-MRide
-meishe91

Count me in as a beta tester. I am familiar with z80 language but not very much skilled with it. I can ask the stupid questions that eventually lead to a significant insight in some matters :). I prefer to take a siderole in this, I am more involved in the hardware stuff.

I'll beta test for you too.
I want to contribute something towards this.

All three of you have been added.

(I'm also hoping you will test the TI branch of KnightOS, too :P)

I would like to help but not good enough at programming to really be any help. Sorry.

@meishe91: You could be a tester though! :) No programming experience required. Photos (also videos, if possible) and words are all that is needed to do testing and debugging. ;)

Also, for those testing, keep in mind that you will be testing the TI version of the OS. For OTZ80, you'll need a serious prototype to run it, and we haven't even finished with the external design/buttons yet! (You'll get a prototype if you are available to test it at that stage.)

Anyway, as long as I can: 1) Get a SilverLink from someone (USB to I/O port), or 2) Be able to open up the calc, remove and install a new USB mini B lead, I'm willing to test this OS out! :)

I don't know anything but BASIC, a little Axe, and some C++, but I can beta test.

I added MRide and Meishe91, and I will add alberthrocks if he can get ahold of what he needs.

I don't know that much about z80 asm, but I would gladly test the software.

What is OTZ80?

I would be very happy to test the TI branch of KOS, but only after it be comes moderately stable. I don't want to screw up my calc.

If you want to help, you can also use an emulator to test, thus preventing srewing up your calc.

OTZ80 is a calc project. This community and Cemetech are attempting to build a new calc to sell on the market. This one will compete against the TI-8x series. :)

I understand that, but if you read the first post, you'll see that development is done on TI calcs until there is a prototype.

@fb39ca4: Oh sorry, I was replying to souvik1997. And yes, emulation can be done for testing, although real hardware is best to test field conditions.
