Re: BBC, electron, atom, arch(?) on retropie?

Why do the Acorn machines not get any love on RetroPie.. is there some reason why? I'd rather be able to switch from a burst of Planetoid to something on a different system and back with ease rather than boot direct to only one emulator per session. It can't be "lack of interest" as the Pi forums se...

Re: Wanted Cheese Wedge Case

Well, I have 2 x teletext wedges, 6 x 6502 copro and one Z80 copro. None are currently BBC cream, if you know what I mean, but I guess they will clean up. For your purposes, I guess the teletext option is best. No idea what one is worth, except there is one on CJE for £59, so I'll take a stab at £3...

There's plenty, I did a larger than usual batch this time. :)

When you get PM access just send me a message and I'll sort one out for you.
I'm also awaiting access :? I messaged you via eBay anyway

Re: B or upgraded A? Version 7. Upgrade Advice??

You don't need to heatsink anything unless you've got one of the very early video ULAs (in which case it'll either be dead or have one on it already). d. I watch this channel and he sinked up just about every chip as he said his got toasty. Is it better in Rev7 then? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Its a revision 7 mobo but the Econet isn't there (and supporting chips) but http://8bs.com/inbbc.htm#IC89 says Econet isn't fitted on revision 7 but then I find I am m...

Re: EPROM Programming Service

You haven't said which micro you intend to test these ROMs with. If you have a Master (for the cartridge slots), an ABR might be a cheaper solution than an EPROM burner. You could upload ROM images to battery-backup RAM and (if required) lock it, so it becomes read-only, in case of software protect...
