I believe this is the cover for that magazine:

Re: BBC, electron, atom, arch(?) on retropie?

Advmame and its emulation of a system such as bbc /electron are launched from within emulationstation. And when you exit advmame, you return to emulationstation. So I think it works as you ask. It's cool.

Hello Just look for advmame, install that. That comes with a compiled advmess executable that runs quite nicely for BBC B and Electron. Once the B is booted, usually *exec !boot runs the disk you've mounted and *chain works everytime for electron. It works really nicely. IMHO dont bother with beebem...

Beyond the ram, and the pcb, what are the other parts? Daniel pointed me to the layout files but stupid me I’ve just not worked those out yet! Don’t know what I’m looking for at all in the .png’s etc. When you have all the part numbers would you mind sharing?
