Re: design a switch circuit

Thank you for that Mark.
I assume the output goes low when switch one is triggered and back to high when switch two stops triggering?
Do you have it on a program that will allow a layout diagram for etching a pcb?

Re: design a switch circuit

I hope I can bump this. I am using a manual way of achieving this at the moment and wonder if someone can come up with a solution? It might help if I explain the purpose of the circuit. I want to make a signal light on a model railway turn to red as a train passes the track sensor, the wheels of the...

Re: design a switch circuit

ok thanks for the interest. If I am understanding right: - At all times, if one light is on, the other is off. - The first switch toggles the state of the lights immediately. - The second switch toggles the state of the lights after a 3 second delay (with the resettable behaviour you described) Is t...

design a switch circuit

I know this is way off topic for a bbc site but I am struggling with a circuit problem that I wonder if anyone on here wouldn't mind helping me with. I am trying to produce a circuit that sounds simple but I suspect is quite complicated. I want to trigger a pair of lights like traffic lights with tw...

Re: Adventure / Colossal Cave v2.5 BBC BASIC port

yes reading through the info I see that, what machines do you think it will run on? he mentions a A7000+ in the first note, may 07.
He does ask for help in play-testing but I can't find any way of doing this?
Any ideas?

Re: snowball maps

no Samwise the layout is a bit complicated but has a format. I have mapped most of it but was just interested to see if anyone else had done so and if I could combine both to produce a neater version.

I have never tried to zip a file (I've unzipped plenty).
I just right clicked on it and highlighted send to, this showed a zip option which I clicked.
I have added the file here, would you mind telling me if that is all I needed to do?

Actually Bob, if we think it might be the output amp that's duff but you don't fancy chip soldering, you can pick up the pre-amp sound from S20 or S21 and feed it to anything with an audio input and amplifier/speaker.

Re: layout of a b+, see pictures.

Hi Martin, The roms are double-slots in that any one socket can take a 32k double-image rom and I think that you will have a single 32k device containing both DFS and ADFS so there's probably not much to be gained by removing either one separately. The dfs's are in slot 5 and 11 making me think they...
