Wanted: DNFS ROM (and Maybe Hi-BASIC)

Post by dhoggan »

Hi,

I recently picked up a 6502 second processor off eBay, but it doesn't have the DNFS or Hi-Basic ROMs. I have found CJE has the Hi-BASIC one, but does anyone have a spare DNFS one that I can buy. If you do have Hi-BASIC then might be interested in that too - keeps shipping simple.

Thanks,

Dave

for the LOLPRICE stuff from CJE, you would be cheaper buying an Eprom programmer for PC or beeb & blow your own!

Blank eproms are only about a £1 ,
sure DNFS is just the 8271FDC v1.20 DFS :?

Hi,

Yes, the prices are a bit high, but in the absence of anything else - assuming they actually have them.

Whilst the idea of buying a EPROM programmer is appealing (not least 'cos I might actually get COMAL that way and complete my childhood setup!), I was hoping to keep things original if possible. But the cost of the programmer alone is over what CJE would charge for both chips.

I get my ROMs from Mark at Retroclinic. Few quid each.

I'd say an eprom was pretty original :D -> quite frequently things would be distributed on those instead of mask ROMs. Retroclinic will furnish you with ROMs at a reasonable price.

Re. HiBASIC - I think most people loaded it off disc on the beeb, as it just gets copied from ROM into the RAM of the second processor?

Daniel is correct. Loading HiBASIC from disc is a good idea. You can try with HiBASIC versions 2, 3 and 4. http://mdfs.net/Software/BBCBasic/BBC/

Thanks everyone - I'll drop Mark an email to see if he can help.

As for loading off disk, that makes sense but right now I'm looking for a single disk drive as my unit has packed up. So until I find one of those, I'll settle on the chip version.At least it'll get me up-and-running.

Thanks,

Dave

If usability is a driving factor over nostalgia, have a look into Gotek Floppy Emulators with the flashfloppy firmware installed on them. You can stop using media that falls to bits and just use a USB stick/SD card instead :)

If you get stuck I have both which I could flash for you for the cost of the eprom & postage.

Oooh, thanks for the offer but I've already ordered them from Mark at Retroclinic. Just waiting for them (and and the second processor!) to arrive.

No problem.

Got a few of those too, in cheese wedges. Must get them out and check them over.
