Re: Electron Cumana Utilities disc

No, Dave couldn't locate it either when I enquired last year, unfortunately.

If you wanted to use it as an Acorn DFS-compatible disc interface, you could install the SEDFS rom that Slogger produced especially for the Cumana interface.

Re: Data Harvest Video Digitizer software for the BBC Micro

Er, no sorry! I never tried it myself and no longer have the unit or manual.

Re: MAME: Video Digitisers

Great work on implementing support for the digitizers, Nigel.

If you're also interested in looking into the Data Harvest Video Digitizer, I've uploaded the software disc to Archive Submissions.

Re: SNAP Camera EV1

I no longer have the camera but I kept a copy of the software. I don't have the facility to archive it at the moment but I'll bring it to the Cambridge event next month and hopefully it can get sorted then (unless anyone else pipes up with it in the mean time).

Did anyone manage to make a wav copy of Cosmiad?

(It was logged as an Atom game, but I think it's more likely it's for the Sharp MK80Z)
Yes, I digitised it on my laptop, I'll share WAVs shortly!

Hi, can we pop Stephen R & Debs (who some of you met tonight) down for Saturday as no-kitters?

(I know strictly speaking there's only one space left, but they should only be hanging around until tea time ish).
