Re: ABUG Cambridge 28th - 30th June 2019 BOOKING THREAD - NOW FULL

I am beginning to think about stuff to bring. I could setup the Tube Bad Apple demo if anyone wants to see it - although most ABUG regulars will have done so already. I bought an Acorn branded twin double sided 80T (not 40/80) floppy drive a while back as faulty meaning to repair one drive and fit a...

Re: Fixed: Enhanced Exile + TurboMMC compatibility? (patched Exile)

No sorry I can't remember. I think I looked in a disassembly (Tom's?) for user port writes or maybe searched for the romsel to find the code. I then just patched the SSD directly with a hex editor on the PC.

Re: ATF22V10C vs GAL22V10D

I set it up again and tried a 2MHz triangle wave for pretty terrible case rise fall times. Works fine (threshold crossing glitches as expected) with your original PLD source.

Re: ATF22V10C vs GAL22V10D

To be honest, I'm not sure how to go about selecting the correct mode. I assumed WinCUPL did this automatically, based on the equations. C:\Wincupl\WinCupl\AtmelHlp\Devhelp.pdf has all the mnemonics for the devices. Looks like there is only one for 22V10 I must have confused it with 16V8... Try set...

Re: ATF22V10C vs GAL22V10D

Are you using WinCUPL for the ATMEL compilation? It churns out a whole bunch of debug info including all the product equations - maybe there is a hint there. Have you selected the correct mode too simple/registered/complex? Global OE enabled? Pin OE not enabled? I use The 22V10C and CQZ in things I ...

Re: ROM Cartridge ?

I picked some up on eBay for a fair price but I watched for them for 18 months or so until there were some I was willing to pay for. I paid less than a tenner each for two Master carts which I thought was fair. £30-35 each is too much IMO.

Re: B+ DFS & ADFS versions for PAGE E00

It does work with BeebSCSI but there is a downside. A bunch of commands are missing like *DESTROY and there is no help. So I end up using ADFS 1.30 a lot of the time anyway.

Re: BeebLink

One question. Is it possible to copy from BLFS to disk? I tried switching to DFS and then back (using *BLFS) and it didn't seem to sync. when I issued a ctrl+B+break, it reported it couldn't sync. A restart of the server fixed this, so it could be coincidence. I don't know about the server sync pro...

We'll see. Not everything on the internet is true :shock: They might be motivated to fix it because there are still a lot of XP installs and they just upset the majority of the FF userbase.

The instructions tell you how to install it on 64 bit windows - since that file predates 64 bit windows as we know it now. You don't run the MS installer but must unzip the file and copy it according to the instructions. I did it a few days ago on my newer laptop and the instructions do work.

I don't think RLOAD has the same syntax as SRLOAD. No address is needed.

Code: Select all
