Yesterday I’ve got a TRS-CoCo II working, hooked up with my Commodore monitor. They didn’t get along at first, but after a while, they were friends, or maybe polite acquaintances 🙂
Although I still think the Commodore 64 is a better machine overall, the TRS-CoCo is actually very powerful. The Extended Colour BASIC is way more powerful than the crazy peeks and pokes I have to use on C64 BASIC. Commodore did way better with the BASIC 7.0 used by the Commodore 128 and other models, which is very similar to the Extended Colour BASIC commands. The code above is not even worth explaining – I was just randomly plotting some graphics and playing some notes.
