Re: My final unanswered Exile question

One last thought, and it's a long shot: do you have access to the Amiga version of the game (WinUAE plus an ADF image is probably the easiest way :) )? I know that the map isn't identical but from memory it's relatively close - you could see if this switch is present here and if so maybe see what it...

Re: My final unanswered Exile question

Good work on completing Exile by the way! =D> My brother, Dad and I played it loads when it was first released but we never got much beyond the mysterious door to the west.

Next project is to build a BeebSID to go along with my BeebOPL and see if I can fit both of them in the case. :D It's fun trying to fit as much stuff as you can into a beeb :) In my...

Re: New A3020 owner!

I think the DOM route is the way forward too. You can get an A3020 to work with a cheap IDE-SD adapter but in my experience the adapter has to be one of the rare two chip versions, not the one chip. Some IDE-CF adapters do work but not all CF cards work, so you can spend a lot of time trying differe...

Re: TurboMMC removing a software diskimage

I'm sure there's a better way to do it, but I remove the MMC, put it into my PC, load the BeebMMC software (or whatever it's called, it's on the TurboMMC CD), mount the BEEB.MMB image and then use the software to delete the .ssd. It would be worth making a backup of BEEB.MMB first before you start e...

I gave this a quick whirl last year; the pi seemed to work ok and i could access the menu options from the pi's composite out, but the gbs did not seem to like having input through the RGBHV. I didn't have time to try it further.
