Re: High Score Challenge S12 - Championship Round - Qwak!

My starter score! 1430 Never played this before (that’s the beauty of the High Score Competition). Simple controls in a well executed game with quite a different feel. Good choice, Venger! 😀

Re: ABUG Canada West Nov 16 2019

Just discovered that two of my other monitors DO need power to the GBS8200, otherwise they display the error message "Out of Range"! Looks like it depends on the monitor as to whether the 8200 video board needs power.

ABUG Canada West Nov 16 2019

It was a dark and rainy day in Vancouver when Ed brought his Acorn sunshine along with his boxes of gear. (Unfortunately Peter from Coquitlam couldn't join us as he was in the UK, and Robert from Abbotsford was sick.) IMG_4782.JPG Three Beebs and a Master in one box! Before Ed's arrival I disassembl...

Master video display fault

Any ideas what may be causing this? Happens on both RGB & Composite video. Hopefully we'll troubleshoot this with a scope at our ABUG CanWest next week. Thanks

Re: ABUG Canada West Oct 19 2019 Meetup #15

Wow - can't believe we're up to meetup #15! As Ed said, it was sunny and chilly in Squamish (apparently it rained all day in Vancouver! :lol: ). As I entered Ed's house I was greeted by music playing from his A7000+, to which he'd hooked up speakers. Note to self: try out my A7000+ with speakers!! :...
