Hello,

I seeks hopelessly a diskette of boot (EXELDOS) for my EXL135 Exelvision.

If you can helping me, please contact me.

I thank you.

The EXL100 was my first computer and I really love it. I learnt BASIC on it before switching to Pascal and assembler language on a PC1512 computer. I was 11 years old when I bought this computer in 1985.

It is true that at this time, the computer was lacking a lot of sotware and especially some games. I still have the first game I programmed in Basic on a magnetic tape. It was named "Le château du professeur Megabus" (The castle of professor Megabus in english). It was a text adventure game I designed after a friend of mine told me about the "DIM" basic instruction :-).

I had a pro keyboard. But the infra-red link did not work very well if the EXL100 casing had been removed for repair (this happened to me after an electronic component burnt into the computer). I had to positionate the keyboard very precisely for a correct use. I have put some pins onto a wood frame so that the keyboard always had the same location on my desk !

The EXELBASIC was very neat. It had a powerful instruction set but the editor was not so great. At this time, my dream was to have the EXELASSEMBLER cartridge but it was very expensive.

I remember having a lot of trouble with the tape recorder I used with. Some tapes did not work properly and I always got an error message (ERROR 255 i think...). The first game I bought was ATI 42 on a tape and NEURONES. I had a lot of troubles with NEURONES because of this famous "loading" error.

Games such as "Tennis" and "Wizord" were really great. I never used the game pads but the keyboard instead. Game pads had a numerical keyboard that could be used with the keyboard.

I also had "IMAGIX" for graphical creations. But it was necesary to have the 16K non volatile Memory Extension to import the graphics into a BASIC program.

Your pages are really great. It remembers me a lot of things to me. Sniff !!

Franz
