Re: TZXDuino with UEF support

Why is it such a pain in the a*se to get these files to work? :wink:
Right done a quick search for Gunzip and it keeps mentioning Linux... is it just a Linux thing? I assume there's a Windows version somewhere and hopefully it works with Win 8.1 and above? [-o<

Re: TZXDuino with UEF support

I suspect it might the uef files themselves. I got them from Stairway to Hell. I just unzipped them to a folder and then copied them across to the SD Card. Other than that I dunno what might be wrong. :-k

Re: TZXDuino with UEF support

Nope that makes no difference. Hmmm... All I have plugged in at the moment is the EAR. I press Play and it says Playing for half a second and then goes back to displaying the uef file. I can keep my finger on the play button and it keeps saying Playing. Whether its actually playing the file I have n...

Re: TZXDuino with UEF support

I got a FAT formatted 128mb SD Card! Success. It loads up the card. I can see the different uef files. Now how do I load them. I hit Chain"" and return pick a file on the screen, I guess I just hit play, but it says playing for a split second and then nothing. What am I doing wrong? Baud Rate is set...

Re: TZXDuino with UEF support

Hey there I'm using a Duino. Or trying to. It doesn't seem to recognise my SD Card. Is there a particular brand they usually prefer or particular Format (FAT, FAT32, NTFS)? Up to now I can't find anything compatible with Windows 8.1 that will format in FAT32 or FAT? So it keeps formating to ExFAT wh...

Anyone used a DUINO on the Electron.

I'm looking at this DUINO, which apparently can run .euf files from an SD Card now. It basically replaces a Cassette Player. Now apart from coming with absolutely nothing, no leads, no instructions, not even a leaflet telling you what each port does or what leads to use, I cannot get it to read an S...

Re: New version of Centipede for the BBC Micro (in progress)

=D> Are you going to do an Beebcade (Arcade Compilation) Like a MAME frontend. So you can launch to the different ports you've done. You must have a fair few now.
Look awesome as always Tricky. Nice work.
