Re: Hello, I am Ian, in Oslo

Welcome, Ian. :)

I think a few people on stardot watched the Retro Man Cave video on YouTube about Karma.

Can one of the admins enable private messages for Ian until we can figure out why I'm not getting his e-mails, please? [-o<

Re: Copy files between ADFS(FD+HDD)/DFS/USB(Datacentre)

The address is correct but others have had issues with messages bouncing before. It would be interesting to look at the headers to see where it got bounced from. :( Let's see if we can get private messages enabled for you. I was working in the Qt part of Nokia until September 2011. I know that Nokia...

Re: Copy files between ADFS(FD+HDD)/DFS/USB(Datacentre)

The other option would be an IDE to SATA adaptor, though I don't think these are as readily available in Norway as they are elsewhere. One place I found that sells something is Kjell: IDE til Sata-adapter . You can also search on Prisguiden if you want to wade through lots of products from random se...

Re: Copy files between ADFS(FD+HDD)/DFS/USB(Datacentre)

Unfortunately, Ian, I don't have any experience of that product specifically. If I'd been aware of something like that a few years ago I would have tried to use it to back up my A7000+'s IDE hard disk. Fortunately, my brother's PC has a motherboard with IDE so we used that instead. I assumed that th...

Re: Copy files between ADFS(FD+HDD)/DFS/USB(Datacentre)

I'm also in Oslo. :) I have an IDE-SD interface that I bought from APDL back in 2013 that might be useful, assuming you can start up some kind of rebuilt RISC PC. Alternatively, it might be possible to read the drive with my A7000+, though it's been a while since I started it up. :shock: The PC rout...

Re: Elaborate Repton 1 Electron Cheat !

Fascinating! :D

It's interesting to see that the map has its own tile on the map screen! And the display doesn't wrap around when you leave one edge, though you can see that your progress is being recorded on the map.

I love this kind of cheat that lets you treat the game like a sandbox. :)

Press C to toggle walking through walls (A little 'hat' appears above the first Repton in the bottom right when active). Just be careful not to deactivate it when standing in a wall or rock etc. It will delete the brick you're standing in, but also treat it as a piece of Earth, so messing up the co...

Here’s Dave’s board working with no extra keyboard buffers — changing out the 74LVTH162245 for a 74LVC16245 fixed that.
Looks good! It's like the hardware upgrade we've always dreamed of. :)

Arculator works on Linux already - even the variant that lets you run RISC iX.

Re: HostFS+TCPIP

Re DHCP I will try and get that later but it seems to be a whole heap of horrible protocols which would all require a lot of memory. It might be possible to make it run only at power-up in which case I suppose it could If you are only going to do DHCP at power-up then maybe BOOTP is worth looking at.

Sorry to interrupt the art show. ;) I found an article while looking for something else and thought it might be interesting for you, pixelblip!

It's interesting to hear the story after all these years, though I can understand why people might be confused about the relevance of the game and its influence. You probably also needed to have heard of the game back in the early 1990s and be familiar with the story behind it to be interested in th...

Re: A confused A7000

Sorry to confuse things about the A7000+. My point was that the A7000+ didn't have that splash screen and I expected the A7000 and A7000+ to have similar ones. I would have thought that the ART logo was only used for certain upgrades. The ROMs that I use in RPCEmu are for RISC OS 3.71 (19 Feb 1997),...

Strange. The A7000+ doesn't have an ART boot splash screen like that. I wonder if the ROM is a replacement from another system.
