Re: New Member, long time Dragon 32 owner

Welcome to the Archive! Thanks for sharing your story, it's always interesting. I almost lose my first computer, an Atari 800XL, because my parents gave it to a neighbour's daughters. Luckily, they weren't interested and managed to get it back too, as it has also a high sentimental value. Regarding ...

XRoar on Nintendo DS

I know sixxie mentioned something about XRoar not working on Nintendo DS for some versions now, and now is when I got a R4 Gold cartridge and XRoar 0.24 working on it. So, I'd like to ask if there's anything I can help with to get it working once again, as I feel it's a great way to have the Dragon ...

Re: Launching Dragon 32 games in floppy format ?!

As you say, I doubt it’s the artifacting and, on top of that, I fixed the artifacting issue and added the proper pal color blending to Mame. One thing that worries me though is that in later versions of Mame, I cannot load tapes with machine code programs as they just stop loading... Nigel, is that ...

Re: Dragon 64: No Sound - How to fix?

If there’s sound through the TV output, I’d try to trace back from the monitor socket and check every connection and solder joint in the way. The monitor socket is on the PSU board, right? Check that the cable strip that attaches to the main board has connectivity on both sides and check the solder ...

Re: Dragon 32 Project Leader

Hi Ian, welcome to the Dragon Archive! I feel that the Dragon had a lot to offer but didn't have the chance back in the days. For me it's a great machine for learning, as everything is easy to do and the 6809 is a great processor. It would be nice if you remember some anecdotes of the development of...

Re: Upgraded Dragon32 ram test software

Great story!

I think it’s nice how you managed to use the Amiga PSU, as one of my trusty Dragon PSUs gave its best after more than 30 years of service.

Thanks a lot!
