Minerva Autostart defeat?

Postby Pr0f » Mon May 21, 2018 11:13 pm

As per the title really, is there a way to defeat the auto start on Minerva and leave it on the ROM scan F1/F2/F3/F4 page without auto starting?

I couldn't find anything in the manual, and there wasn't anything obvious in the source.

The code is in sb/start.asm at the read_key label. You need to set the timeout in the D3 register to -1.
