[Coco] What ever Happened to NineServer ?

Yes, originally Aaron was using the "/Nx" descriptors but there was a lot of confusion. The "/MIDI" is a descriptor within itself and named as such. Actually, it is "/N14" just renamed as MIDI can only be translated through virtual channel N14.
The "/Zx" series is dedicated to the virtual terminal modes, though they use the same driver (scdwv.dr). I think it was Aaron's intention to eventually create a new dedicated "Z" driver with a more robust command set and proabably would have included graphics.

I thought those were just for MIDI so I had not installed them yet.I will add them to my boot changeing references like N5 to Z5 perhaps the Youtube refers to an older version where N is used rather then Z. I will update you about my progress tomorrow.On 2018-06-04 13:16, Bill Pierce via Coco wrote:> If you are referring to just running a NitrOS9 terminal window on the> PC with the Coco as the server using DW4, then yes, it's still there.> First you need the "/Zx" desriptors along with the "scdwv.dr" (as well> as normal dw boot stuff)> Boot NitrOS9 with DW4 access.
