Re: Faulty BBC issue 7

Is it the same EPROM? What programmer are you using? Does it have a verify facility? As DutchAcorn says the initial screen is mode 7 Frogger with audible tones and cycling LEDs. If your EPROM doesnt work in the working BEEB ( replacing the OS ROM )then it could be the EPROM has some stuck bits... He...

Re: PunyInform and Ozmoo

Hi Steve

Wow... Splash screens as well =D>

Am I using the 3.7 version incorrectly?
I'm getting this:

PS C:\Users\Marcus\Documents\Acorn Computers\Ozmoo> python make-acorn.py alice3.z5
Can't execute 'lzsa'; is it on your PATH?

Re: Loose ROM sockets

Have you tried cleaning the ROM pins with a fibre glass pen?
That can sometimes be the issue.

Re: Second Failure of Start-up Capacitor C9 on Beeb PSU

Thanks wheel_nut... I've thought about this specific issue myself.
Was it an 85 or 105degC cap? Who is the manufacturer? Is there anything else that could have contributed to its early demise?

Its an ASCII zen simulator...
A version coded as a z5 module written by Dave Griffith.

Re: PunyInform and Ozmoo

Hi Steve

I think I've found a bug thats crept in between v3.1 and v3.2
In Beebem if i choose Master and 65c02 copro.
Then boot the attached Alice disk select mode (0).
With v3.1 it runs fine... with v3.2 it prints some location text and then a " Fatal error :8 "

Re: Broken Beeb

The short keyboard ribbon cable connector crimps can break off over time with flexing due to keyboard removal. A quick test is to remove it and re-install the otherway round. Also well worth a quick inspection of the conductor to crimp joints. Also have you tried moving S25 to south ( or off ) to fo...
