Re: AP6 curious behaviour

On a serious note, as shown on the facebook group I love the acorn electron, we have made some progress transferring adfs disc images to the CF HD Interface connected to the AP5. Would be great to run virtually the whole of the Elk Library from one 512mb CF HD image :-) Well done! How are you doing...

Re: AP6 curious behaviour

Because an ADFS that includes hard disk support is full full FULLL!!!!! That's why the AP5 supports a RAM overlay and Bank Paging e.g. you get another 16K of code to play with - similar to CC's Interword etc. Dave H :D So no excuses for all you tech wizards then :-) ;-) On a serious note, as shown ...

Re: AP6 curious behaviour

Sorry to highjack the thread by thought I would add my love for my Elk with the AP6 and AP5 combo. Currently I have a CF Card Interface running off the AP5 (Hopefully in the future it might have an ElkSID :-) and a Pi Co Processor :-). I am running the CF Interface card off ADFS paging at 1D00.

Re: Commodore 64

Hi For better Video output I would suggest a Lumafix which sits under the VIC II chip which increases the sharpness of the picture quality alot. The other tip is to get a S Video Cable if your monitor can handle S Video signal. Most common issue in my experience has been ram failure or logic chip fa...

Re: C64 jiffyDOS & SD2IEC

Not sure if I should mention, but my main passion is the 64 :-) Reference Jiffy Dos it does speed up greatly the loadtimes via SD2IEC. As storage solutions go, the SD2IEC's is the cheapest route and if you trawl through the other bay's, Amibay or Lemon you can pick them up from between £30-£60 depen...

Re: Electron SSDs for MMC card

Plus 3 ADFS paged at 1D00. Electron MMFS Pages at 1900. Although I think some of the guys are trying to update the MMFS rom to page to E00 which would save having to load the ESWMFFS every cold boot :-)

Thanks again Duikkie :-) Starting to create a DFS DSD image which all of your efforts can be run off one disk image with a !BOOT menu :-) Helps us poor souls who still use 3.5 inch disks on our Elk's :D .

Hope you do not mind, and keep em coming :-)
