Re: Replica Atom

Robert, how much is the keyboard sunken?
Is it possible to add a metal plate with holes to lift the keys like the original Atom?

Re: new to atom: ram rom mmc joystick power

Oops .... my mistake .... #-o
I was looking in my BBC conversion documentation and there I invert the input ....

There was a change in calling the PORTB command in older AtoMMC roms and I guess you still had a JOYTEST for the old AtoMMC roms.

Good to know it's ok now.....

Re: new to atom: ram rom mmc joystick power

*PBD FF should switch all PORTB pins to input.
*PBV should be 00000000 and if you move the joystick, the corresponding 1 should appear.

It could be an old version of JOYTEST ....... can you test this one ....

Re: new to atom: ram rom mmc joystick power

Hi Andy, this doesn't look right ... The PORTB connector on the AtoMMC board only has 8 pins, PB0-7 so there is no GND available. You connected the joystick GND to pin 31 of the PIC controller which ok. Do joystick movements change anything on the screen? You can try one of the AGD games in the Atom...

Re: Today I received.....

An Atom, issue 5 with Acorn colour board :D Next step is to get a power supply so I can test it... Hi Chris, Nice find .... if you add LK6 and LK7, you can use a standard 5V/2A power supply like an USB power supply. If the links are removed, you need an 8V/2A power supply. http://www.acornatom.nl/s...

Re: My Acorn Atoms

If the mainboard is cut right, it can be working with only one or two wires. Without keyboard of course but the Atom will be working fine. I also did this with my first Atom. Cut the mainboard, make a seperate keyboard of the shortened case and mount the cut mainboard in a PC case. http://www.acorna...

Hi, your FrankenAtom is probably like this: FrankenAtom.png One of the 4KB RAM banks on the ROM switchboard is probably at #1xxx because the FP ROM has a #1xxx switch. The battery on the ROM switchboard is for battery backup of the RAM banks. The disc-controller PCB will be in the disc housing and I...
