Subject: old Name Entry patch, revisited Sent: Sunday, December 9, 2001 17:57:20 From: email@example.com (richard seymour) Back in 20h and 21eK, i provided a patch which allowed the use of the (nearly) full ascii character set in keypad entry of Names for user bodies (instead of the current limit of UPPERCASE and numerals). The following patch is for v22eT, and allows lowercase and quite a few punctuation symbols. At the penalty of having to scroll through all of those characters when you're entering a name. This is for 22eT, and can be applied to either a plain (unpatched) build.rom, or to one which has already been converted to 22tT. The checksum correction is embedded in this patch, and does not affect the main checksum. Patch instructions and assistive programs at: http://www.weasner.com/etx/autostar/patches/22et-kit.html Enjoy. --dick P.S. "2.2tT" is a previously patched Autostar ROM. > This 22eT/22tT Patch will allow access to almost all ascii > characters for Object Names, etc. via the scroll up/down keys > Dick Seymour 1/23/2001 rev 09-dec-2001 > > v22eT, 497 Autostar (11 changes) > loc old new R 2B011 41 21 R 2b015 5A 7a R 2b029 5A 7a R 2b03b 41 21 R 2b057 39 7a R 2b05d 41 21 R 2b061 5A 7a R 2b079 5A 7a R 2b07f 41 21 R 2b087 41 21 R 30fd0 ff de ; 22eT
