Re: WE EPROM Programmer. ROM images etc

I am almost certain that there are pin designation differences between 2764 and 2564 chips, so unless there are some jumpers to change these you may need to make an adaptor

Re: INPUT Magazine Listing / Electron Error ?

do you have a plus 1 attached, if you do Page &d00 is the extended vector area for the plus 1.

try relocating/re compiling the machine code to reside at a different location, obviously changing any "call &d00" to whatever place you put the machine code

Re: Electron with sideways ram?

My thoughts on this are there is a clash between the ram and the plus 1 rom the ram is mapped to rom slot 12 which is the same as the plus 1 as the system hangs with the plus 1 attached and the switch in one of the positions and not the other the plus 1 rom "disappears" also when you try to find the...

Re: Worth Taking a Look At

Interesting item. How do you route the floppy cable if it is plugged into a Plus One? Also, why does it have a battery? You might open it up and find a load of corroded tracks... The ribbon cable folds up the side of the case - works quite well! The battery is for a RTC - leakage would be my concer...
