Re: Tatung Einstein TC01 PSU Specifications?

I too would like to thank you, as I've got the opportunity. Preserving is essential, whatever the machine. It's a tribute to the talented people either behind the hardware, the software, the printed materials etc ... Keep up the good work. There's always so much work than meets the eye to do exactly...

Re: C64 jiffyDOS & SD2IEC

I think on Amibay you'll get better offers and much help.
I must have one of these boards somewhere bought cheaper on AB than on EBay ; haven't had time to play with it, though.
FB channels dedicated to retro could be a good source too.

Re: Wanted - A3000 IDE podule

If space is tight on the Eprom is it possible to !Squash the modules and have 'just' a piece of code calling Squash to unzip the zipped contents to RAM ?

Yes, I tried this yesterday... It works with the Wizzo driver. It's not a great hardship, but it's nicer not to have to rely on old media, or mechanical floppy drives. Looking at the castle podule, I do wonder if it'd be possible to carefully desolder the rom, pop on a socket, and replace it with a...

WTD : Top Model and its sequel

As the title says, I'm looking for a copy of the 3D modeler Top Model
and its sequel, whose name I forgot.

I've already got a copy of TM, but it doesn't work on my machines ;
I believe it could be because it's been registered on another machine ...

Thanks in advance.

I can confirm that the castle podule doesn't work with a CF-SD converter or recent SD card reader. I'll be trying it with a two-chip SD card reader as soon as I get a 40-44pin adaptor for mine :( d.

Re: Baildon Electronics IDE Interfaces - Replication

Could there be a benefit for you to use the MIST board with the Archimedes core to develop your podule ?
I have just watched again TerribleFire's upload on YT where he says MIST is a perfect tool to do exactly that.

it appears up to 6V is ok.
1V is the least you can feed it with.
