Updating a Riscos installation in Pi3

Hi all! I had an installation of RISCOS for my Pi3 (that I struggled to put together ) that works OK. I thought to update it. I took the latest nightly riscos.img and overwritten the existing one in my SD (in the FAT area). Unfortunately it booted to a 640*480 screen that I had no menas to change in...

Re: RISC OS On RPi3 Closer.

Thank you for your reply!

Can you explain to me the difference between update4.zip and HartDisk4.zip?

And another that everybody finds too obvious :(

I open Strong editor to write a BASIC program.

How do I run it? I save it with a specific extension?

Thank you!

Re: RISC OS On RPi3 Closer.

The RC14 is quite old. I hope an RC15 comes up that will provide more things that work-out-of-the-box for Pi3. No more update4.zip or HartDisk4.zip (which I cannot understand what to do with). Also simple things like a shortcut to BBC Basic editor. It is easier for someone that hasn't used RiscOS be...

Re: What can I do with RISCOS?

I succedeed in having RiscOS on my Pi3 even with problems. The thing I wanted to do with RiscOS is to use the BBC V Basic. I cannot find from where to launch its IDE I press the F12 and I only get a tiny-non friendly cli window at the bottom which I cannot set to fullscreen or to something bigger to...

Pi3 RiscOS image?

Hi all, is there a chance that a Pi3 ready image (even with issues) can be assembled and placed somewhere so it can be downloaded? I would love a thing from where I could start setting things up. I went over all scenarios...but even some scenarios conflict with each other I can reach the stage to ha...

Re: Porting ARM BASIC to the Raspberry Pi via SDL 2.0

Hahahahahaha!! Anyway...isn't it a pitty an ARM based computer not to have a BBC Basic version? Pyjamarama, After that we can talk real business with something like C++ Some would consider that child abuse. :) Except of course in the limited way that C++ is exposed to Arduino users. I'm totally into...

Re: Porting ARM BASIC to the Raspberry Pi via SDL 2.0

:) I agree. But even for retrospective reason I would love to see a BBC Basic blinking at my Pi Anyway, my plan is to teach them some fundamentals (lile lopps, screen plotting etc) using BASIC...maybe a retro version. After that I can move to FuzeBasic for a bit more structured things. After that we...

Re: Just to teach my kids programming the old way

Thank you. But since I am an SQL,C# developer (with the least of free time) the only simple things I know that can be understood easily by the kids and dont need any of my time to learn, are the old 8bit micro BASIC versions

Just to teach my kids programming the old way

Hi all, I want to use my Pi3 as a base to intoduce my kids to programming. I saw the Scratch app but that is not what I had in mind (I could not even really get to the bottom of this). I would like an environment that delivers a language similar to ZX Spectrum or BBC Basic. The kids, and the BASIC e...
