Re: So, here's a thing...

Thanks everyone for posting on this topic. I've successfully built a cable and simple board to use my 2 button Amiga mouse with my Master / Pi CoPro combination. I've double checked the cabling (and checked again) and everything is fine except up and down are inverted, i.e. push mouse up, pointer mo...

Re: BTelnet - BBC Master Telnet Client

This is exactly the program I've been looking for, great work on this. Do you have anything releasable yet, happy to assist in testing wherever I can.

Re: Running DosPlus (version 2.1) with Raspberry Pi 80286 processor emulator on BBC master 128.

Good morning everyone. Apologies, please forgive me coming in to this but I've been having the same issue in creating media to install dos plus on my RPi board. I have a CF card on DataCentre, would it be possible to obtain a copy of an image?

Many thanks.

Re: Datacentre giving "Bad Drive" copying from USB

Ahh, many thanks both of you. I'm OK importing disks, I assumed I could *copy, but if that's not the case I'll follow Daniel's suggestion.

Many thanks for the comprehensive answers :)

Datacentre giving "Bad Drive" copying from USB

I think I've tried everything and trawled the manual, so maybe I'm missing something. Trying to *copy files from Drive 5 (USB key) on an internal Retroclinic Datacentre is giving a Bad Drive error. I can import SSDs, but the *COPY (e.g. *copy 5 0 file.ssd) gives an error. I've run the NVREST.SSD to ...

Correctly output to a printer

I've just connected up a 'new' STAR LC10 parallel printer. All working fine from VIEW, and got everything set up. I need to print a basic listing, so I'm enabling the printer (VDU2) and entering the command l. to list. Problem is, it prints but all on 1 line. I'm not getting the CR at the end of eac...

Function Key Templates

I've been trying to find some templates for function keys that size well when printed and, not being able to find any, produced the attached in Microsoft Excel. 3 tabs, with 3 different logos for you to choose from.

Re: Offered: Matchbox sized 6502 / Z80 / 6809 Co Pro

Apologies everyone, I'm coming to this party rather late having only just joined up with *.

Are there any plans to produce more of these boards? I've always been keen to be able to run CP/M on my master, along with some other items.

Greetings from Hampshire

Good afternoon everyone, from a rather bleak Hampshire. Long time Acorn and Sinclair user, with a 'reasonable' retro collection in various states. I decided around 18 months ago to concentrate my collection around two examples of classic British 80's design, settling on my favourite Acorn (the Maste...
