Yes, it’s remarkable. That’s probably why we all like the BBC so much, it’s an amazing machine!

Re: Wanted - Scart cable for Elan Enterprise 128

Rob, does this look like it will fit correctly? I may as well buy this if it looks ok and save you the hassle of making one up:

Re: Wanted - Scart cable for Elan Enterprise 128

Ha, I did think about asking you Rob after our pm but I didn’t want to impose again!

If you could cobble one together that’d be amazing, but no pressure if it’s a pain in the arse!

Wanted - Scart cable for Elan Enterprise 128

Hi all,

I’m looking for a kind soul to make up a scart cable for me for my Elan Enterprise 128. I hear it can be a fiddly job due to it having to connect to a pcb edge connector, so I will reimburse with plenty of cash/beer!

If you can help put them please PM me :)

Thanks!

Re: Should i get an A3000 or a RISCPC ?

Be aware of how you’re going to run games on your machine as you might have to think about finding an ide podule. I don’t think these are cheap for the A310. There have been new runs for the A3000 recently here on Stardot so finding a cheap A3000 interface should be easy enough now. Whilst I agree t...

Re: Stunt Car Racer for BBC Master

Your reading of the controls is exactly how it plays on the Amiga with a joystick. Having a separate accelerate would be good.

Re: Hard disk installation of new games.

I dunno if it’s relevant, but The Darkness of Ravenwood works from a cf card on a datacentre under adfs. Is a BeebSCSI not similar to that?

Re: Should i get an A3000 or a RISCPC ?

AtomicElite was the entire reason I got an atom and went to lengths to get it pimped out. It’s worth the effort and I’ve since enjoyed exploring the Atom and what it can do. Fingers cross Kees will finish AtomicElite and maybe launch some new projects soon (like AtomicTubeElite!! [-o< [-o< ) @soviet...

Re: Should i get an A3000 or a RISCPC ?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m a big fan of your videos, Martin :)

I’ll have to make a new recording of Elite running on all my machines. I did one of it on 8 machines a few years ago but I’ve got rather more than that now that can ‘do’ Elite :)
