Re: Atom in need of life

First I would clean the black spot and restore any damaged tracks. Then I would remove the yellow, black, white and green wires to have an original mainboard. Next step is to solder LK6 and LK7 because then the Atom needs a 5V power supply. You can use the pink and the green wire with 5V but please ...

Also in old posts, I can't see the images in the first post.

Re: New AtoMMC board: V4

Don't know if that's possible and if that's wise because PORTB on the AtoMMC board is a general port which also can be used for other things. I know Charlie connected a mouse in the ZX Spectrum version which has the same PIC controller. In fact you have to patch all joystick games but the question i...

Thanks Kees,

That's it!

I get 11111111 at 2MHz with that patch and setting ?#2866=16 works for 4MHz

Regards,

Nice ..... 16 should also work for 1 and 2 Mhz.

Re: New AtoMMC board: V4

There are some wait loops in the code ...... maybe they are to fast for 2Mhz.
You can test it by changing the value at #2866 (was $04) like this:

*LOAD JOYTEST
?#2866=8
LINK#2800

Well, it also looks like a good candidate for an Atom conversion.

Re: Yet Another Acorn Atom Repair

A lot of Atom problems are caused by the sockets .....
It's better to swap bad or suspicious ones with turned pin sockets because these are much more reliable.
Especially the ones which are used by expansion boards.

Re: New version of PacMan (PuckMan) for the BBC Micro

Great game Tricky .... didn't get as far as Arcadian but no bugs or glitches ...
Nice ....

Is it an idea to reverse the direction of the ghosts after eating a powerpill?
In the original game, the ghost are running away from you if you eat a powerpill.
