CP/M Plus on ROM for the Amstrad / Schneider CPC's. Further a set of expansion ROMs containing CP/M Plus applications. And the corresponding documentation for it. Enjoy CP/M Plus from ROM!

These ROMs allow to start CP/M Plus out of the ROM (2x16 KB) and provide additional CP/M Plus applications on other ROMs.

Both CP/M Plus ROMs are compatible to the firmware. The app. ROMs are not, they have a special format.

Names of the ROMs (CP/M Plus ROM version)

  • CPM_Plus-1.ROM / Both ROMs (CPM_Plus-1 and -2) are needed to start CP/M Plus. Use the RSX: |EMS or |O (see below).
  • CPM_Plus-1V.ROM / If one uses the ROM CPM_Plus-1V.ROM instead of CPM_Plus-1.ROM then the sign on message is shorter.
  • CPM_Plus-2.ROM / (One should just check them both and then decide which one you like more).


RSX commands of the CP/M PLUS ROMs (2.34 and 2.30)

  • EMS -----/ Starts CP/M Plus from ROM and shows the CP/M Plus expansion ROMs with thier names.
  • O ------/ CP/M Plus is configurated for two drives and the RAM drive C: with 444 KB RAM.
  • PW ------- Probable this command is equal to RSX commands "|EMS" and "|O".
  • CPMVER --/ These commands are both identical. They show the Copyright message for CP/M PLUS and the CPM ROMs.
  • VER ----/ Furtheron the version of the CP/M PLUS ROMs is shown, as the serial number and the name of the user.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
