    Geoff, everything you have done is amazing I greatly appreciate it.

    Seems to me that the easiest way to load it would be via the rs232. I have seen some examples of this online before including the geocities site you mention. It shouldn’t be too much trouble for me to set this up, luckily for me the holidays are almost here. Of course, I'm also willing to type it all out and looks like I may have to do that for the machine code side of things if I'm reading you right and you only have the BASIC program. Easier to type up machine code then basic at least.

    Thanks for the link, I guess I should be going through some of the old magazines and see what else can be found.

    I see what you mean with the point function, looks pretty good, I should be able to whip something up using that example and a little time. Having Banner would of course be easier, but I doubt that I'll get a reply to my email so I should probably just get onto it these holidays.

    Again thank you for looking into this all for me, what is the best way for you to get the ASC file to me? Email?

    Hello,

    I'll hopefully attach the SIDEPRNT prog. This is complete, the BASIC bit is really just a loader for the machine code, which is all there as DATA, so if you can get this onto the HX, then you're running.

    Regarding the specific magazine, there was another article for a disassembler, also by Elizabeth Wald. I'll fish out the date of that issue if you need it, but I was getting that specific mag for a while and I don't remember anything else so useful. There was not a lot of useful stuff published for the HX, it was fairly specialist even back then.

    I'll keep looking for BANNER, I'm sure I've got something somewhere. But where? I don't think that BANNER was anything to do with Julian Wald (or Elizabeth for that matter), and it was only a small prog, just a little larger than the example in the manual.

    If you want to try the RS232 load, then yes, that article (with games) on the Geocities site. The HX is unusual in having the LOAD option using the RS232 directly, this will be a big help.

    Geoff

    Well that's good news, just a matter of hooking this thing up to a PC to load it. As I said before that will be my holiday job. Don’t go to the trouble for the disassembler, it probably won’t be that necessary for me, at least not yet. If I need it I'm sure I can locate if it's in the same publication.

    On Julian's website he did have BANNER listed as a utility, doesn’t mean it was his though I guess, here it is on his site https://web.archive.org/web/20170301...x20/items.html

    Thank you for the program, it will be good to get it going.
