Well, that was impressive fast!....

Where is the documentation?

and how did it handle threads/processes?

FAT32 is unsupported afaik. FAT16 is, information and utils can be found on http://www.msx.ch/sunformsx/download/idetxt/instr-fat16.html

Does anyone know if this is limited to Sunrise IDE's?

For FAT16 to work, you need the FAT16 tool. Get it here.
Having a FAT12 partition to boot from and to place programs that are not FAT16 compatible is a good thing btw ;)

Where is the documentation?

I started to write several documentations and libraries last year:
http://www.symbos.de/download.htm#marke2
There you can download the "developer documentation". As the CPC guys are all so lazy I stopped with the documentation, as it was useless, if nobody is interested in it. So there is no documented example source code yet, but I will do this soon, when the MSX version is ready for a (beta) release.
But you will still find most information you need, also the memory structure is documented. In the MSX version the "file manager" module will be placed in the first ram bank, where the CPC has its video ram, so the "memory map" document is not 100% correct.


by the way CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Thank you :)

Very cool Prodatron, and I must admit even the 2:1 as opposed to the 1:1 resolution isn't as big an issue I thought it would be - weird. I wonder what Symtris looks like? Smile Anyway Top Stuff

Does every window store the background-screen/gfx it's located on? (to restore the screen after close/move/resize)

If yes: what happens when one has, like, 10 fullscreen windows? 10 storage buffers?
