Re: XRoar 0.36 released

Sounds like one of the DragonDOS bugs... I'd recommend either a bug patched DragonDOS version, or at least SuperDOS E6 / DOSplus 4.9.

Re: Jaysoft - Taipan

I found a Portuguese translation (hack) which i have put on a CAS file for you. ;) If you /anyone knows how to save the BASIC as a TXT/ASC file, i will edit and translate it back to English using the Spectrum Tape (TZX). The easiest way with XRoar is to run with "-lp-file filename" and then LLIST a...

Dragon 64 PAL VHDL

The Dragon 64 VDG "glue logic" transcribed into VHDL. Xilinx ISE reckons it's ok? And GHDL builds it... It would replace 9 chips if it worked...

Anyway, it's commented, so it should at least help understand the schematic...

Re: Capture the Dragon

Coming along... Still need to place a bunch more accurately and replace some temporary stand-ins. It's fun to learn ;)

Oh, try \r instead - \n will insert character 10 which isn't the Dragon's "Enter" key...

Capture the Dragon

64, that is. In KiCad. It's something to do, eh? https://www.6809.org.uk/tmp/da/dragon64_schematic/ or https://www.6809.org.uk/tmp/da/dragon64_schematic.zip Don't get too excited, there's way more to do before it's usable. And I'm definitely an amateur, so there's probably lots of bad style choices ...

Re: Atari Joystick Adapter Build. Baby Step by Baby Step.

I did mess with Fritzing a while ago and get a PCB made - it works, so if it's useful: https://aisler.net/p/FRUJQVTV (German company, so I guess you'd have to be pretty quick...). PCBs are much easier to solder :) But this weekend I actually tried learning a bit of KiCad, which was fun. As the simpl...

Missing software

One for Simon, I guess: is there a fixed location you keep your spreadsheet of "missing" software up to date? Occasionally I go to check it, but the only instance I can find is an old XLS in the friendface files. Mostly I've been interested to see if certain announced software in Dragon User was on ...
