Re: stfm memory expansion board.

Is that Marpet or a clone? I'm interested in that if you can ship down under?

Re: Stuff and Things.

Oh good, I'm sometimes amused when Americans don't get English (or Antipodean) slang. :lol:

Re: Stuff and Things.

With all my Amiga's, those SMD's are whats stopping me recapping. :twisted: In fact, the total number of machines in general just puts me off. :roll:

Tell me, does rubber jonnie mean the same thing in the UK that it does down here?

Re: Stuff and Things.

Amen to that, I have a Marantz DCC player that is an absolute bastard to fix. From what I've seen they had a 100% failure rate on the read/write board SMD's.

Re: NOVA

It will run, but like its like wading through treacle. I think it might be playable on a TT. It is a fair bit of eye candy for an Atari though.

Re: NOVA

I can type listings on the 130XE in faster than the Xbox 1s can install. I still fall back on the MegaSTE for most games. The unmolested one, that is.

I have also been playing Dune on the CT2 Falcon a bit, that's quite frustratingly addictive.

Re: MegaSTE repair

Kaos six chip Mega2 fails, All checksum errors. Looks like a bad ROM burn. Six chip 1.04 passes but RAM errors all up the wazzoo. I guess an address problem. MegaSTE is still white screen. I have to get hold of a USB to serial cable from work and check that out. The other Mega4 has to be faulty RAM....

Re: MegaSTE repair

Cart and DMA chip arrive, just over a month. Pretty good considering Melbourne is in total lockdown.

MegaST2 with two chips gets a clean bill of health. Onwards.

Re: NOVA

I seem to spend more time fixing things than playing with them... Monopoly was the first game I got into on the MegaSTE after I reinstalled the hard drive last month. Bloody addictive. I suck at shoot em ups, I used to be mediocre, now I'm just rubbish at it.
