Disregard all of the above, sorted it!

the sotbrom needed to be in bank1 which does not offer self-write protection. It works now. and it's amazing! It's a shame the gbs8200 outputs at 60hz as i get a slight stutter so it's not completely smooth, but it still looks great!

Glad you got it working.

The sideways RAM code is self-modifying (for the graphics relocation code and for pointer storage) so needs to be in a bank that allows this. I can't use any main memory for this as it's all being used for the display!

Can you do *HELP and *ROMS and report back with the exact output? (a photo would be ideal).

hey hoglet,

not ignoring you.
I just don't know what's up with my master. The swram seems to work fine untill I load the mammfs rom. I thought i'd cracked it with the bad jumper but apparently not. I can load other roms (i tried the master welcome disk spriter rom and it's works fine) and loading mammfs presented itseld after the crtl.brk once, (and gave 'card?') but tried again and it just kills the swram until i power off for a bit. it's really strange. I'm back on the acorn vid ULA so don't think it's anything to do with that.

cheers

I've found that after I load the sotbrom into slot 1 if i press break to refresh the roms the demo then works fine, but if i ctrl-break then i get the following issue

I'll take a look at it when I have a chance. Out of interest, which ROM board is this with?

Thanks,

Rob

Thanks - pretty sure I have one of those somewhere (although unfitted) so I should be able to replicate the problem.

Cool, I'm assuming there's a clash between the turbommc rom and the sotbrom. This is how I have the roms set up:

It's probably something dodgy on my part - the sideways ROM code was a very rushed job as I concentrated on the relocation code and getting the display stuff running from main RAM.

I've released a new version of the two NuLA gallery demos, which I tweaked at ABUG over the weekend, and can confirm they run ok on Turbo MMC now.

Thanks for posting!

I wish I could have made it to ABUG
