Re: Guide to running RobC's Doom implementation on Master/PiTubeDirect with SD card interface

The process is either flash the cf card attached to the DC with an image of Rob’s CF card, or use something like ADFS Explorer to copy the Doom folder (and wad) to your existing CF card.

Re: Show us your retro computers

Hello Sanxion. I have actually chatted to RMC quite a bit on the discord channel. Problem is I’m in York and he’s down in the south west! If I head down that way he’s already said I have some stuff he’d like to take a look at :)

I had fun setting up my A3020 and EtherLAN podule a few years ago. I’ve taken a bunch of photos which may or may not be helpful!

Well, this is strange. I’ve just booted the Atom to get some info for Hoglet, and things are working ok. This is with the AtomSID connected.
