Re: AMX Mouse Software

My Electron has a Slogger Turbo/64k board and is fitted with an extra slogger board under the lid just above the keyboard. I didn't known anyone here actually had a working SP64 board, could you dump the SP64 ROM? We already have SP64 v1.01 but as 2x16K ROMs whereas yours looks like a single 32K. I...

Re: AMX Mouse Software

That's a Stop Press 64i board which is a version that was sold after this one. I had one of those in years gone by and have been working on and off this last year trying to reproduce the circuit diagram but the PAL chips have got me stumped. If you could let me know their part number(s) that would ...

Well got a bit closer, but I don't think the answer you are looking for. My Electron has a Slogger Turbo/64k board and is fitted with an extra slogger board under the lid just above the keyboard.

Re: AMX Mouse Software

I've not tried it on the Master just the Electron which shows the same issue with *pMOUSE although the mouse shouldn't work with this disc on the Master because of the differences in the User Port. I was just hoping it would be the same cure.. Ah my mistake. I'll dig up my Electron and see what/and...

Re: AMX Mouse Software

I realise it's been a few years since this post but I have uncovered the Slogger Stop Press !boot disc for the Electron in my collection.

Hi Dave, As far as I know there was not a clip art disc for AMX-Art. Bu there are loads of clip art discs (see the public domain discs) made for Pagemaker and Wapping Editor. So what you could do is convert the images from Mode 0 to Mode 1. And there is an image converter on the AMX Art disc, if I'm...

Re: Faulty Master???

Bad sum is an ADFS error where the workspace has been corrupted. If you don't need to use ADFS to run AMX, try unplugging it and see if the problem goes away. Bad contacts on Master ROM cartridges can cause all sorts of havoc as well, give them a clean or try without the cartridge if possible. I'll...

Re: Faulty Master???

And your ADFS version? And can you switch from MOS version? ADFS 1.53. Yes, same results with MOS 3.2 Alan Thanks! Guess it has to do with the switchable MOS or the ADFS 1.53. The BeebEm uses ADFS 1.50, and the rest of all the rom versions are the same compared to the real Master (so far as I can s...

Re: Faulty Master???

So, in order to try to eliminate things, apart from AMX art, what other programs or ROMs have you used? Did any you tried work okay? Or did strange symptoms occur?

Re: Faulty Master???

That does not look right, the rom images have not loaded into the SWRAM slots. The *SRLOAD commands should load the 4 rom images into 4-7 so they should appear when you do *ROMS. Make a copy of the boot file, e.g. load into EDIT and save under a new name; then try editing the boot file in to *SRLOA...
