Re: DragonCoCo v1.0

I have always wanted to use alternative ROMs in my own Dragons, but am unsure as to which EPROM programmer to buy. Can you (or anyone else) please link to everything I would need (and a good source of compatible EPROM/EEPROM chips) on eBay which would be suitable for writing/erasing both Dragon 32 ...

Re: DragonCoCo v1.0

Perfect :D I have replaced my Dragon 64's roms with these EPROMS. Seems to be working great both in Dragon and CoCo modes. Successfully tested with LAFUMAT's disk controller in Dragon mode and with Tandy FD-502 disk controller in CoCo mode. I think I'm going to keep these ROMS installed as my perman...

Re: DragonCoCo v1.0

Thanks. Looking good under MESS! Before I test with a real Dragon, would it be possible to add the "Disable DOS or game cartridge at power-on" feature from Steve Woolham's enhanced Dragon ROMs to this ROM also? The idea is to be able to turn on the Dragon with a Tandy Dos controller plugged in (but ...

Re: DragonCoCo v1.0

Cool, this is a Coco ROM for the dragon which has the keyboard mapping patched!
Is it possible to burn this on an EPROM to have the Dragon run as a Coco without keyboard rewiring?

Re: New Dragon DOS controllers available!

Just received the Dragon Dos controller I've ordered from LAFUMAT and it's working great! I've been able to boot up OS9 on my Dragon again for the first time after more than 20 years ;) Works great with the Hxc floppy emulator. It was a pleasant surprise to find out that the controller is much small...

Re: DragonCoCo

I can confirm that the modified CoCo roms are good also for the Dragon Tano! I replaced my Dragon Tano ROM with an EPROM containing prime's ROMS and my Dragon cheerfully powered up as an Extended Color Basic CoCo. Of course the keyboard is all garbled since I didn't do the keyboard rewiring. I'd be ...
