Re: Doom?

This is probably the only 8 bit computer that have a true full doom port running.
Even is in 8 colors, very impressive.

Re: Mystery Zener Diode

From the schematic it look like is a protection diode, will start conducting current at certain threshold and shortening to ground.
Maybe this was the reason is so hot, by removing it this could let the current pass and fry something else ?.

Re: Should i get an A3000 or a RISCPC ?

I think it's worth considering Steffen's point, if you're not bothered about the exact 'retro-experience'. A Pi of any flavour, even a basic Zero, will run ADFFS, which will allow you to run boatloads of games - not just those which are Risc PC onwards. Of course, if you want the exact 'look' hardw...

Yes i'm going to try to get an A310, look like the most interesting option.
