Re: BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 v0.19a released

I've done some more work on this with my Pi 3. I used a new, clean Raspbian Stretch image as Richard suggested. The libsdl2 files all installed exactly as they should. They also install under Raspbian Jessie but not under Raspbian Wheezy. I used the install-rpi.txt file included with the bbc-rpi.zip...

Re: BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 v0.19a released

Thanks for the quick response, Richard.

I am trying this with a Pi2 running Raspbian Wheezy

And this is the error message I get:
OS version.jpg


My Pi 3, running Raspbian Jessie is OK with version 0.16e. Is it the Wheezy version that is causing the problems?

Re: BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0 v0.19a released

Tried installing this on my Pi but the installer reports that all files to do with libsdl2- are not found.

Is this just me or is it a known problem?

Re: Printing a program listing

This advice assumes one is using BeebEm on a Windows Machine. To get a listing of a BASIC program do the following; 1. In BeebEm click the Comms menu item and make sure the printer on/off is ticked. 2. Again in Comms choose printer destination Clipboard. 3. Assuming the program is already loaded typ...

Econet and flash card storage?

I have tried the TurboMMC family of flash card storage solutions on my Beeb with an Econet interface fitted and discovered that the MMC ROM and NFS use the same workspace.

Other flash card solutions exist for SD card using MMC-ROMs and SPI-ROMs. Do these conflict with a working Econet?

It is very difficult to say what people will pay these days. The upgraded Master ought to fetch £250+ and the upgraded Beeb £100+. Check recent prices for sales on eBay for the Compact - they are commanding high prices. Cub monitors seem to go between £5 and £50 these days. They are big and bulky an...
