Re: BBC B Elite versions

The 2nd copro version is working on my beeb thats pretty much the same set-up as yours. (Integra B,speech,vnula,RC 1770,pizero)

The original and SWRAM versions hang as you've described.

Just holler if you want me try stuff out.

I think that set-up plus videoNula graphics processor is the main focus.
There is also mention of a version for the standard ULA and Pi Copro.
