Yeah, I have a datacentre fitted already. Will be ordering a VideoNuLA on payday! Then doom on a beeb, yay!
Great - do contact me on here rather than buying one on eBay as it'll be cheaper...

RobC, I'd love to know more about getting a VideoNuLA for my master but I can't PM you as I'm too new to the boards. I already have a Datacenter installed and would love to try this Doom port.

is there much soldering involved with the VideoNuLA?

You usually have to desolder the original ULA on a Master but, if you don't fancy doing it yourself, I offer a free desoldering service. You just have to post the PCB to me and cover return postage. Alternatively, if you're anywhere near Newport, South Wales, you can just bring it to me and I'll fit the VideoNuLA while you wait.

Let me know if you're still interested and I'll PM you my e-mail address.

Cheers,

Rob

Rob, that sounds great, I'd really like to take advantage of your soldering offer as my skills with a soldering iron are right up with my knowledge of brain surgery.

I'm not close to Newport but I do go to Cardiff now and again visiting a client down that way. I'd rather bring you the machine than trust the board to a courier.

If you can pm me your email address maybe we can work out the logistics of when it's convenient for you (and how much the upgrade is etc.).

Thanks!

Linking to a guide I've written for running this on a Master/PiTubeDirect and SD card interface:

Did you ever get sound working? Last demo video was still missing sound.

Not yet. I did get one of Sprow's Ethernet cards for Christmas so hope to work on networking too soon.

Talking if that I wonder if 1mhz Pi could service Ethernet requirements....

Only thinking as not so many people have Ethernet or don’t have a master so not even an option or econet already populated.

Quite possibly. I'm going down the Sprow ethernet card route first because it has a well-defined sockets API and so shouldn't be too much work to get up and running. I'd love to do Econet as that's more common but don't have any experience of low-level coding for it at so it'll have to wait for now.

I think I've read that some people have accessed the Pi ethernet interface using bare metal so it could be doable.
