Re: MAME - Dragon 200-E

I remember that there's an address you can write to, to enable/disable the external character rom, but if you cannot invert the characters as these have been replaced with the lowercase one, thus the switch.

Maybe we could have a gallery of images in different screen modes.

Re: Dragon 32 PSU board picture, "48086?" "Issue 6?"

Ciaran,

Thank you for the pictures!

They are indeed interesting. It seems that the power part is the same and they made a new board issue to accommodate this particular RF modulator model.

Cheers,
Rob

Re: ?OM errors

Welcome!

If I remember correctly, OM stands for out of memory error, which may indicate a ram, rom or sam chip errors.

It could be that the chips are ok but there are broken track or corrosion on the motherboard.

Can you post pictures of both sides of the motherboard?

Cheers,
Rob

Re: More Oojamaflips ready

So, here's my beautiful finished Oojamaflip:

It works pretty well, and I'm most proud of how well the male edge connector turned out.

Fits well inside the case too.

Thanks John!

Re: Comparison of Dragon mass storage options

I had an external HxC working with the Dragon.

That said, I managed to connect an Amstrad FDI-1 3” drive to the Dragon :mrgreen:

Re: Comparison of Dragon mass storage options

Well, You can have a gotek and/or real floppy drives by themselves without a DragonDrive.

In any case, I was thinking actually of the HxC Floppy Emulator, which comes in a SD Card and in a Connect-to-a-PC-via-USB versions.

Now that I think of it, should also the DriveWire be included in the list?

Re: Comparison of Dragon mass storage options

That's nice, thank you!

I'd add a Gotek floppy drive emulator to the list.
