Re: Mystery Of The Java Star (1984)

Thanks for posting this improved version! I actually had this game back in the 80s, and I remember struggling through the early stages hoping that the game might improve. When the explorable plan of the ship appeared it was quite exciting - at last, something like a real game! Followed by the disap...

Re: Any potential for replacement disks?

I know this doesn't solve your immediate problem, but i have many blank DSDD 3,5" floppies and I would be happy to send as many as you need FOC if you would be willing to cover postage. I guess it might be of help if you found that you needed to put the images onto a physical floppy... anyhow, good ...

Congratulations on what has been achieved so far - this looks absolutely gorgeous and as a lifelong Electron fan I can only say that I wish there had been more like it back in the day!!

Thank you for asking about the elk - she's in the great care of Dave H at the moment so will live again!
I was going to ask in the other thread about your Electron but sounds like I'm not the only one wondering how the patient is! :D

Can't you remove and replace the socket, or even just solder the ULA directly to the board? I did think about trying to source a new socket and replacing it, but the ULA itself could be bust and i read that faulty RAM could cause similar symptoms so i deciced that it might be just as cheap in the l...

NOIZE!

Here's a bit of fun for you Elk users; it's a tone-generator/noise proggy that I've made with a few options (my fav is 'freestyle' mode 99))

It may well work on Beebs too, it does work in emulator but is a bit wobbly. I recommend a real live Electron.

Have fun :)
