Re: Sick Dragon 32

The way the VDG is soldered in pins 21 - 40 are nice and straight. Pins 1 - 20 are curved quite badly so they are probably under a lot of tension and the heat cycles must have weakened the pin and it fractured although none of the others have failed yet. If you have not already checked the solder c...

Re: MAME - Speech Synthesis Module

It also works if I remove the SBY to CB2 connection so doubt this is correct as CB2 is configured as an output, but not sure where it goes. The Watford Electronics BEEB Speech Synthesiser has a built in speaker, see http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/6484/BEEB%20Speech%20Synthesiser/, whereas t...

Re: INFOCOM adventure series for the DRAGON64

There are The Infocom Documentation Project and The Classic Adventures Solution Archive to name but tw...

Re: XRoar - Windows 10 64-bit

Geirhovland,
does the very latest version of XRoar (xroar-snap-2018-15685-w64 at the time of writing) crash on your system?

Re: Hello everyone!

Hello Daniel and welcome.

For more information about Dragon text adventures be sure to check out The Classic Adventures Solution Archive. (It does not yet list every Dragon text adventure, but I am still adding games whenever I become aware of them.)

Pere,

xroar -ao-format help >> aoformathelp.txt

Re: XRoar and sound

Pere,
in that case it may be that the latest versions of SDL2 do not work properly with either Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows.

And a quick search has revealed this "IMPORTANT FOR DEVS: SDL2 2.0.6's audio breakage in Windows". Ciaran, is this thread any use?

Re: XRoar and sound

Pere,
have you tested both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of XRoar? I'm using 32-bit Windows so I cannot try 64-bit XRoar, however none of the 32-bit XRoar versions that I have tried has failed to produce sound so it may be a problem specific to 64-bit XRoar.
