Up because I've received 2 out of the 3 parcels containing the items, but the software is Windows PC only, and not RISC OS, when the documentation clearly states there are Windows, RISC OS, and Mac versions.

I know this is a super old thread, but did you get a UNILAB Computer Module 540.027 ?

I'm looking for information on how to drive this board via serial, I downloaded Flowol 4 but that has no support for UNILAB boards (nor does Flowol 3) - did you get the original version of Flowol? According to the manual for Flowol 2, it is possible to select the "MFA Serial Computer Module", so getting hold of Flowol 2 would help a lot [-o<

Have you tried reaching out to Flowol on this as they're still in business and I believe still run by the original founder, Anthony Bowker https://storeuk.robotmesh.com/ (who, incidentally, was a year or two above me at school - small world!)

Thanks, I'll give that a try. I have left a Facebook Messenger message on the Robot Mesh Facebook page already, but the more chances the better.

Oh well, despite several attempts, I got nothing back. I'm tempted to remove the PIC and put my own on there, a back burner project for a wet winter next year :lol:
