I ran your first script as a startup file with NitrOS-9 6309L2 v3.2.6
using the 80 track disk. Term was the 32 vdg screen but both cowin and
covdg were in os9boot along with w1-w7.
The test was made using MESS v1.09 rather than a Coco3 but that should
not matter. NitrOS-9 booted into a vdg term and three 80 column text
windows were started with black screens and different colored text.
Just to be sure, I then copied the image to a real floppy and booted
from a Coco3 with 512K RAM. This test was also successful.
Don't know what to say as I can't reproduce your problem.
Hold everything, stop the presses!!!
Is the Setime <1 in your script a typo or what is actually in your
startup file? Nothing after that line will run because it will generate
an error. The correct syntax when used in a script file is:
