Re: High score challenge - S2 round 6 - Frogger

My first entry in the high score challenge! Decidedly average I would say..but then again not too bad for a game as frustrating as this...damn those alligators (or are they crocodiles?), not to mention the awful collision detection on the edge of the screen #-o

Re: Beeb keyboard problem

Some keys work. Some keys - y,j,k,:,x,[RETURN],A,F - repeat until break is pressed. Some keys give another character and repeat until break is pressed - t=f,[DEL] = [RETURN],U=J,I=J,O=K,P=@,£=:,UP=RETURN,DOWN=RETURN. ctrl does not appear to work. Hi Simon I had similar symptoms with my beeb last we...

Re: Hi - (from sunny Oban)

Hi Keith Welcome from another noobie here. I too have just fixed up a beeb after sorting out various problems with the memory, via, keyboard and some rom issues. Now I have same problem as you with a floppy drive and some old disks that dont want to play ball. Cleaned the heads which looked to be ok...

Re: Faulty BEEB - RAM problem FIXED!

Thanks for the tips. Desoldering IC53 went very smoothly, used a solder sucker on the back of the pcb to get out most of the solder, flipped it over and snipped of the legs close to the chip. About half the legs came off the board straight away and the last few just needed a bit of heat and the suck...

Re: Model B - Continuous 1st beep

Hi odin have you tried changing S25 to see if you have dodgy RAM chips perhaps? If this is a 32K machine then S25 should be set North so both CAS0 & CAS1 memory banks are enabled. Try setting S25 to South, this will disable CAS0 and just use the 16K in CAS1. Also try removing S25 altogether and ...

Re: Faulty BEEB - RAM problem FIXED!

Hi Lee Thanks for the concise post on troubleshooting RAM issues. I am new to resurrecting Beebs, just picked one up from eBay last week, and after trawling the forums I came across your thread you referred to which matched the symptoms I was seeing. I ran the memory tests yesterday, and after re-re...

Re: Scans of BBC Micro service manuals

Cross fingers this works. Please leave comments if the file opens okay (or not) many thanks for the service manual scan...particularly like the pcb layout showing physical location of the IC's. Something that the main service manual seemed to lack (i was getting fed up of using the IC list and gett...

Hi from the south coast

Just saying hello to all as I am new to these forums, and pretty much new to the BBC now after not using once since my school days in the early 80's and a computer based YTS(!!!) course when I left. Sadly I could never afford my own BBC back then, but I was happy programming my ZX my spectrum, and d...
