Re: Elk ACP3 and ACP4 Floppy Interface

That should definitively work :? One socket is higher priority than the other and the file system ROM in that socket will always take precedent.
(although the ram overlay might cause issues - I think that only works on one socket)

Ken - you should have a confirmation email from when you placed the order, and if you log in on the xeropage website it should show the status of any orders you made.

Re: Open source firmware for Gotek floppy emulator released

Looks interesting. I wonder if it would be possible to add a feature to pass info back to the Gotek from the host computer to select disk images so you could then have large games menus like the MMC type systems which auto select the appropriate disc. e.g. something like seeking to tracks 100-109 t...

Yes, elk basic II is identical to beeb basic II. The elk will happily run basic 4 if you drop a 65C02 into it too :)

Re: RISC OS 3.20 ROM's?

You need EtherH8 in there for the minipodules in the A30x0/A4000. I'm not sure you should use the latest ROOL EtherH - it's missing certain functionality (EHTest and EHInfo IIRC). The version I used when I reflashed ROMs in some old etherH podules would seem to be the best - it works perfectly well ...

Re: Image rotation

I realise the forum software hasn't been updated for a bit, but one of the reasons it wasn't updated for ages (and we got hacked) was because it's hard to do with lots of custom code bodged in. The main aim here is keeping things as vanilla as possible to ease updating (and also because in truth non...

Re: HxC Floppy Emulator with the Elk + ACP4

Boot option not set on the floppy. Select the relevant file on the HxC, make sure you can catalogue it, then type *OPT4,3 - that should sort it out.

Just to note, it won't fit under a master, you do need to use an extension cable (female-male 34 way IDC) or replace the header and use a straight 34-34 way cable. For power on the Master, you may well find you're using it with the 80186 coprocessor in which case you're going to want the user-port f...
