Re: Raspberry Pi to 1MHz bus interface

That's a shame, their QA is usually pretty good for the boards, they must be running flat out at the moment though with the virus and many other pcb fabs being out of action. How easy was the component selection and making the manifest. Did you use Kicad? The results look good after the fixing did y...

Re: B-Em

Aha, that was it! I got confused by the b-em.cfg being picked up in different places by the Linux and windows versions!

Re: B-Em

Hello,

Is there a reason why EDIT doesn't work in the Master 128 modes on b-em (v-48e1203 - also on my hacked versions).

The roms config looks ok but no joy.

typing EDIT in BASIC gives "Bad Command" and *EDIT doesn't work either

Re: BeebEm Alpha Fork with SID and PAULA sound

Thanks Nicola, that is very helpful!

I've made a change to the source on git hub to get rid of those types, I think the rest (getting allegro) is covered in the general build instructions.

Did you try the "Paula" sound - did it work ok?

Thanks

Re: Problem with hot air on Aoyue 2703A+

Not sure about your model but I find with my air gun:
- slower is often better, reduce the air speed?
- smaller nozzle is better, I never had any luck with the bigger nozzles without resorting to building tin-foil barriers, I use a 8mm nozzle

I've updated this a little. There are now new disc images (attached) the main difference is a new menu system and slightly updated hardware detect code and it's all shifted up in memory to allow page to go up to &2000 so ADFS can be used for faster loading. I've also made a B-em version of the emula...

I got a bit further and for an exercise had a go at getting Visual C to compile it.

Thanks both. I will bear the context lib in mind for future projects. The current menu system needs to fit in two pages at 1d00 to allow it to run on adfs and is in assembler. So complicated libraries are out for now. Ill trybout these idea tomorrow evening when our visitors have left

Re: move "up" a directory

Thanks, I'm guessing FNFile is calling OSFILE and returning the type of the file - that should work in enough cases and is sufficiently concise - I've not got a lot of space left for the menu system!

Thanks John,

There is only going to be one piece of software - mine, a music player. I was just hoping there would be an easy way to change to a (sub)directory and back without having to force changing to root.

Sophie's House

On my Gotek - which is currently in storage - I found a game called "Sophie's house" which my daughter has been nagging to play. I've been struggling to find it anywhere online. I think it was on Education5.ssd (but I may be misremembering).

Please could it be posted up here

Thanks
