Re: R260 - missing CPU card?

It's 150 quid for one that's either not known to work or known to not work. I'd just avoid it tbh

Re: RISCPC ROM-Set Question

Re: RPG project

Naomasa298, you mentioned on the talk on Saturday that you still had a combat system to write and were looking at JRPG style. This is very similar to my own project, so I thought I'd share some links I'd found relating to the forumulas behind Final Fantasy 1 https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/nes/522595-...

Itszor/puppeh gcc cross compiler for the BBC: Instructions, examples and library

A few years ago Chris M helped me setup a copy of puppeh's gcc port for the BBC. I've been using it for my game developments since then, and several people asked if I could share details on how I set it up. I'd not forgotten, I've just been really slow doing it!

Re: Using RPCEmu with RiscOS v3.11

RPCEmu emmulates a RISC PC, not an archimedes. As such needs at least RISC OS 3.5

You need to use Arculator for 3.11

Cool, I don't suppose you'll have any updates to share on the RPG? :)
