The extra dimension is that you can now see your progress around the map (although its just my hand-drawn map at the moment) I did start a JavaScript version of Sphinx Adventure but have not done much on that since Janua...

Pair of Amiga floppy drives

A pair of Commodore Amiga Roctek floppy drives. The floppy drives are the 26 pin variery (Citizen-UODC-68A).

Last used about 2 years ago.

The cover has been removed in the photo so I could identify the drive used.

Price 20 quid because I think the postage is going to be high.

Hi, here are some UK101 programs written in BASIC.

I wonder if the emulator is missing something as three of the programs are not formatting the text correctly with the graphics.

Which cable/adaptor do I need to get to connect the archimedes A310 D-Type analogue RGB to either SCART or VGA?

At this stage, I am looking for signs of life from the Archimedes so could i use the Mono ouput to feed into a SCART or VGA ?

Hi, getting corrupted text when running (BBC) games on a Master 128. (Flip, Sabre Wulf, Death Star)

Do I need to configure something in the Masters character set to fix this?
