Re: Beeb Arcade Joystick.

I'll refer back here when I am ready to make some more! - No one will be forgotten.

Bare with me - I will be making them, just not sure when yet. A lot of supplies deliveries have obviously been delayed lately too.

Thanks for the kind words!

Re: Beeb Arcade Joystick.

I got a bit confused with Tricky's wire colours and the pictures, but eventually got it right (after doing 4 wires totally opposite because I can't read tiny numbers on the DB15 connector!

Here is a shockingly bad 'paint' diagram which will hopefully make it a bit easier?

Re: Beeb Arcade Joystick.

Just waiting for some multi stranded cable and some DB15 plugs to arrive, then I'll see if I can get it to work. If there is demand for these, yes, I would sell some - providing I have enought time to make them alongside a ton of other controllers for other machines. I have also done a simple overla...

Beeb Arcade Joystick.

I put this together tonight just got to work out the analog to digital circuit and wire it up tomorrow. The black is just a polypropylene rectangle glued on for now, but I have designed an overlay with the owl logo in the bottom right corner for future sticks. D34B057A-DF62-44E5-A403-0BD5F3F51144.jp...

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R6 - Scramble

Hi there, I don't come on here much, but I love Tricky's Scramble - I was the one who 'kill screened' it on level 4 (the yellow alien bug) at Revival a few weeks ago. Nice to see he has fixed that now and the aliens go crazy on level 4 now! A welcome addition to an excellent port. Here is a quick sc...

I'm not sure how to change the !BOOT - I googled it but couldn't manage to change it. Not to worry though.

I did play Imogen last night - soooooo good.

I found a 1gb card that actually worked in the end. Must be picky abou SD cards. I need to make a...

Newb fittinig MMC to a Master Compact

Hi there Acornists! I have a Master Compact (got it form a boot sale for the princely sum of £1!) It has no drive & psu box - no worries there, I have powered it with a standard DC +5v centre pin + power supply and it works, but initially a lot of the keys weren't working. A good clean inside on the...
