Re: For sale: RGBtoHDMI boards

If anyone wants me to print one for them then please PM me. I guess about £10 including UK postage would about cover it. Mark Hi I'll happily take you up on your offer! I got the box recommended on RGBtoHDMI github site, but then managed to make a slight mess of the lid when drilling! I presume pay...

Re: Educational Archive not in STH

Anyone got disc 2 of the Granada Pondlife title? Here you go... While testing I found disc 2 was not recognised when using BeebEm, but it did work with B-Em and jsbeeb. Seems to be the same as the one I've got, just without the unused/formatted sectors at the end to pad it out to 102400/40track :)

I'd also like a built RGBtoHDMI, should there be one available!
Am I correct in thinking I'd also *just* need the RPi Zero WH (with memory card) and case then it'd be ready to run?

Re: Audiogenic Impact, disc version, working

Ah, interesting. The first level of "Alpha" has "HA" written on the screen instead of the diamond shaped formation other versions seem to have. Is it possible someone overwrote the levels that came with the game? Cheers Chris Option 4. Default is the standard set of levels Alpha, Beta, Gamma are su...

It might convert cleanly to an SSD -- no obvious exotic sectors.

Re: Disk Preservation and Writing Tools

One issue I've come up against (because I'm a newbie to this) is how to convert HFE images of normally-formatted DFS discs to ssd/dsd if there are missing sectors or tracks. AFAIK, the HxC conversion tool and Keir Fraser's Disk Utilities don't fill missing tracks with anything (e.g. zeros) in the s...

Re: BBC-FDC floppy controller for Raspberry Pi

Drive 0 of Elite is 40 track, drive 2 is 80 track (first 40 tracks contain data, last 40 tracks unformatted, i think)
Looking at a few key points in the image, it's possible to deduce that it's the "fixed" version :)

Re: BBC-FDC floppy controller for Raspberry Pi

Can Bill confirm that FSD is only really meant to be single sided? If so I can change the code to only operate on one side at a time. I did notice that FSD only stores logical side information and not physical side - but then I guess the Beeb treats the sides as separate volumes anyway. Yes, I only...
