Re: MONGREL REMAKE H4 COMPETITION

Yeah, you got me there ☹️ Jon, ya know they sell gloves that lineman use when working on high tension lines.

Re: Looks like I'll be getting a Mega ST4 soon

No 3d printing required, seems I'd already run off a set of short stand offs and had them stored away, so the floppy got mounted just fine. Wiring harness is now made for the battery box, so I need to test that out too. I've decided that a new reset switch is in order, as this one is all kinds of wo...

Re: C100167 MEGA ST REV 4

Here's the after pic: IMG_20191019_161452.jpg Glitter fitted, sound chip fitted, new floppy plug fitted and header fitted for new RTC power lead. Not to mention fixing the bent ROM pins! Mostly running fine, got to run Gembench and see what's going on. TOS says 2MB, Diag cart says 4MB, so that's odd...

Re: Looks like I'll be getting a Mega ST4 soon

Audio problem resolved, all 3 channels are now audible on test, seems that A & B are next to each other on the chip, and are supposed to be tied together, but the pad for channel A, which should have a track to the pad next door for channel B was gone. So it's now bodge wired. As soon as I finish my...

Re: Looks like I'll be getting a Mega ST4 soon

When the keyboard are working fine with the Eiffel so the mouse must be working too. Your PS/ 2 mouse are faulty. On the Eiffel Joystick port you can not connect a mouse I think it is joystick only. Actually, you're right Frank, I just re-read Olivier's notes and I may have miss-read it originally,...

Re: Looks like I'll be getting a Mega ST4 soon

So today worked out pretty well, as I discovered a very small thing that was having a fairly annoying side effect, that being the machine misbehaving. It's not so obvious in pic no 1, but have a look at the second EPROM back: IMG_20191019_120509.jpg I only noticed as I caught it in the light just ri...

Re: Looks like I'll be getting a Mega ST4 soon

Eiffel is here, and I have a week off next week (Well a weeks holiday, I don't think I can class it as off!) Hopefully I'll get some time though and I can get this puppy up and running. I think I like your form factor better. The older revision is longer and narrower. Yeah, it is pretty dinky. It i...
