How to load a program? PGX & SD card or FX/OS

Post by cydo » Tue Mar 09, 2021 9:57 am

What's (or will be) the preferred way to load a program / game ?

1. As a PGX via BRUN"filename.pgx" after mounting the SD-Card (on startup with F2)?
2. Will there be an integrated File Manager for visually selecting the PGX files?
3. Via FX/OS? Or is there another file format that's capable of using the FX/OS Window Mangager API? Is there an API ? ;-)
4. Or something completely different?

I'm struggling to get started as a first time user. I just want to run some sample files, but most (*erm* all) of them
needed to be directly loaded via HEX-files and then setting the appropriate program counter. I'm quite sure,
I'm doing something wrong or in a totally complicated way...

Any help appreciated, thank you

You can also upload .hex or .bin files from the Foenix IDE (https://github.com/Trinity-11/FoenixIDE/releases).
The Foenix Kernel also provides a Python based uploaded (https://github.com/Trinity-11/Kernel_FM ... er/C256Mgr).

You will need a PC with a USB connection to your Foenix unit.
The Foenix IDE only runs on Windows (or in Linux WINE).
