Re: Pi-based Co-Pro on the cheap - 100MHz 6502 for £10? (now 274MHz)

infocom, DOSFrotz /almost/ works, it successfully starts the game but dies on attempting to read user input, given there's source of that about I'm going to take a look later as it'd mean games that currently don't work like Beyond Zork should be playable if it can be fixed. That would be fantastic...

Re: Pi-based Co-Pro on the cheap - 100MHz 6502 for £10? (now 274MHz)

On the Master 512 286 processor, a number of things that seem like they should work just crash DOS Plus / the 286. In particular, PCCE is guaranteed to crash the machine the next time a command is issued despite being loaded as a TSR to avoid it stomping all over the HDD workspace. PCCE is known no...

Re: Frontier Elite 2

Have you tried running *FE2ULA instead of *FE2? does it do that same thing? (except the palette changes, since it leaves the palette alone) After it returns can you do anything else? Or is the machine frozen? Tried both FE2 and FE2ULA same issue. It doesnt return ( CAPS LOCK' wont toggle ) only bre...

Re: Frontier Elite 2

Can you take a screenshot of your screen?
Its just the boot banner and the arm>* prompt

After which I type *FE2 (return)

Then it just stays there
The screen doesnt clear but the text palette looks to be changing every 3 or 4 scan lines

Re: Model B+ boot problems

Hi Retroclarence

Please post some photos of the PCB.
I've had two issues with B+ tone of death. ( Excluding possible keyboard issues )
Dead CPU and faulty RAM.
Both fairly easy to diagnose but would require desoldering and socketing new ICs.
However thats jumping the gun at this stage.

Re: Yarrb - redesigned

Probably not relevant to Johns current issue, but I thought it was worth saying. A couple of months ago when I was experiencing some issues after replacing the 7805s I traced the problem to the newly installed links. It turned out that one of the link pads was not plated through so I had to solder t...
