Re: Simple Rom Board

Hi. However, for the basic ROM board - you're right in that we shouldn't overcomplicate things. Maybe there's a call for both types of solution? I do think there is possibly a need for both, although at my current (how shall I put it, erm "state" of machines) , I would be happy with about 3 or so s...

Re: Simple Rom Board

Would it be worth making some PCB's possibly so people could assemble their own ?

Just a thought, but as its bare sockets (plus a couple of socketed chips) , it should not be too difficult for people to do...

:)

EDIT... Although having said that, I would certainly want at least 3 for my machines.

Re: Simple Rom Board

An extra four sockets would be enough for most people I think :D One B I need one more socket and another I need two more... So will keep an eye on this thread with interest :) Slightly off topic: I actually have one B that only has one useable (apart from OS and Basic) socket due to wear and tear a...

Re: Dr Who and mines of terror

I have no idea what version it is to be honest, its in my "spares" box the last time I checked.

From memory, it has a green label on it.

I might be able to transfer it (maybe plug it into my master and use the sideways ram to turn it into a file)

This is probably a really basic question (sorry) :oops: :oops: :oops: But as I have never ever tried to use it before I needed to ask... How do I actually use sideways ram on both a Master and a 1770 equipped B (yes the B does have one 16K chip in the socket right next to the OS) I just wanted to tr...

Re: Scart Audio Dilemma

Just a little bit of feedback... The LM324 route works well, thanks :D Although it would of worked first time if I had not connected it to the "other LM324" (the one near the cassette port) I think my thoughts at that moment were just in Spectrum mode , where audio / tape are shared (ish) port 254.....

I would have thought that a FLASH/SRAM solution would be more preferable too, as you don't need to physicallly "blow" the ROM in order to use it, just load up whatever image you like.

I recently brought a nice ready made RGB scart lead for one of my B's (the recently resurrected GoMMC machine) However the lead does not have any audio as expected. This is not a huge problem to add but I have two concerns. See my pic (quickly drawn on a bit of paper as its easier for me than paint ...

Thanks :D

Although, (not really had chance to check) , I think some of those missing rooms (according to that page) are present in the extended version (the 26310 version)

Re: Best solidstate storage

As a GoMMC owner, although I have not tested it properly, I think (again, not really tested) , although I could use it for ADFS hard drives images, I would like something to actually use for L3 storage. I am not sure if this would work as WFS-INIT may not be very happy about it... Don't get me wrong...

Re: Questions about JSW2 disk versions

I did a little bit more research as best as I could (which is not very)

I found that although this version is incompatible with a M128, it does however work on the Compact (I made an adfs image) or the M128 with the later, rarer ? MOS (the one with the built in ADFS Format)
