Re: Games with problems

SIM

Electron version speed of the 3 channel 4 symbols compared to you isn’t consistent with bbc version. So on bbc you can get past the 4 symbols on electron you cant cos your too slow compared to them.

Re: Most Loathed Acorn Electron Games...

Commando always made me feel a little short changed compared to a lot of versions.

But sure I had some cheapy games that only got played once or twice and canned (had they been disk and easy to load I may have given em more time but they felt like weren’t worth 3min if my life loading)

Re: Wanted : PSU for elk data recorder

So any 6v dc psi with at least 300 mA and stick a mono 3.5mm Jack on for power?

Sounds doable if can find a suitable wee psu.

Unless of course anyone has a dead alf03 and still has pay?

Re-engineering of the Slogger MRB, Jafa Mode 7 Mk2, Elk 4-channel sound cart plus RAM/ROM into a single PCB. And if that isn't enough of a challenge, you could always add in CF-Flash Winchester and Stop Press 64 support too! ;) Surely that is what Ultra-ULA could be and could even add nula? Yep! Al...

Re: Master to VGA or DVI monitor

Personally a 2nd shop/reclaimer/recycle type place and a very cheap old flat tv with rgb scary input would be best option and cost ya next to nothing, then just need the compatible scart cable to go direct from master to tv.

Wanted : PSU for elk data recorder

Anyone got an original psu for the elk style data recorder?

Thinking may as well keep it all original if anyone has one they no longer need.
