Re: Broken Dragon

Nice pictures, Phill! As soon as I get back home from holidays I'll try to do a 300dpi scan of my Dragon64 motherboard and upload it to the Motherboard Pictures page. By the way, maybe we should order the pictures based on the model number because there can be a lot of revisions of the boards and th...

Re: Using the HxC Floppy Emulator

In the end, the Dragon receives the audio data at a given point. I think the best thing to do would be to use a small microcontroller that renders the tap file to audio signal and outputs that to the tape connector of the Dragon. The main problem of such add-on is the user interface for selecting ta...

Re: Using the HxC Floppy Emulator

I just tried my HxC with my dragon 64 and it worked flawlessly!

The HxC floppy emulator is indeed a nice piece of hardware.

As most software is on tape format, is there a way to convert it to disk so that it can be used with the floppy emulator?

Creating missing article in the wiki

Hi everybody, I got recently a HxC SD floppy emulator and I'm trying to use it with my Dragon 64. Thing is, a friend of mine asked for pictures of the disk controller, so I did 300dpi scans of it (both cartidge and PCB). Do you think that it's worthy to upload them to the missing Dragon Data Disk Dr...

Re: Vintage Computer Festival @ Bletchley Park - 19th & 20th Jun

I couldn't go to the VCF (and something tells me I'll regret my entire life :P) this year. I really hope I can attend the next one.

Do you have pictures of the event? It would be nice... :D

Re: Time to move on

I'll be forever grateful to you for maintaining this nice site, and hope it will still be among us for many years. I think I could dump carts, cassettes and disks, the only problem would be to send them to Spain. Obviously if you find someone near you who can do the job, it would be cheaper. In any ...
