Re: Broken Cub Monitor for the taking

Hi,

Is this still available?
I can use it for spares if nothing else.
I'm in Manchester so could collect at some point.

You can do it with VLC.

Re: RiscPC PC Card

Looks like the soundcard emulation software is included in the one you are linking to.
You have to install the driver on both the Risc PC and DOS sides.

It seems to the in the "Sources for various PC card drivers", not sure if its been compiled as part of the community downloadable version.

Re: RiscPC PC Card

I think the original PC card software only did the internal PC (buzzer) sound output.
I have the extra aleph 1 sound stuff somewhere that allowed it to pretend it had a soundcard on the PC side.
I'll try to dig it out. What version of the PC card software are you using.
