Re: Today I overclocked my A3010

Hi, thats an overclock level i'd be more than happy with !

Daniel said he wasnt sure if the 4 layer would overlcock more reliably i think.I'd love to have both options tbh especially if that helps you do a small run.

I'll pm you in a sec

Hi Andy

I have just acquired an a3010, I understand it's only 1mb.

When it shows up, if it IS only 1mb, may I please have this if it's still available?

Re: Apple IIe & Disk II with issues

great news!

I can recommend "adtpro" to send disk images (even a bootable image of itself) over serial or audio to the apple. Runs on windows or mac.Do you have a serial card or better, a super serial?

Re: Apple IIe & Disk II with issues

Hi, what slot is the disk controller in? Looking from the front, 7 is far right

Disk controller is usually in 6

At the prompt then try PR#6 ( assuming the controller is in 6). The drive should spin up.

Hello it's advancemess 3.9 I've got electron loading .uef files reliably now, inc elite, planetoids and exile.

Hi, i have a Model B & the pi co pro. Works great. BBC is modded to take a 64k eeprom image. I had been successfully using Beebaid's *tubeoff or tab/break to disable the co-pro before running games. Until recently i blew a new 64k eeprom (still containing beebaid), and now beebaid no longer works! O...

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

I've given up on compiling mess or lr-mess as always failed I found that installing the advmame binary also gives an advmame executable in the /bin folder - and it seems to work! this isnt completely correct, but I suggest starting here: https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/19844/advmess-for-dummies-...

Missed the boat by miles perhaps but as I’m hoping to acquire/ fix up an A3000 I would love an 8bit board for an A3000.

If there’s a wait list / wish list! I’d love to be on it if ok

Re: Anyone remember a four colour ballpoint pen plotter?

It was a great little printer, same mech used in the Atari 1020 as well

The gears age and crack so don’t move the paper

They can be replaced with a particular part from a model helicopter... I can search it but google Atari 1020 gear model / radio control and I think you’ll find it
