Re: Acorn Archimedes

And this is why I feel radical fanboys are detrimental to the retro scene... I appreciate your love for the Archie, but its kind of sad that you have such hate for another machine. The Archie was greater than the Amiga in some things, the Amiga was greater in others. Defend your point of view all y...

Re: Acorn Archimedes

After some further bashing the Archie on EAB (let's say : business as usual on this board, for everything that is not a cult to the Amiga) and disguised insults (of course withrawn after I over reacted a bit, you know I am French so I am not a sissy, by construction) and as I believe you do not see ...

Shadow Of The Beast sur Acorn Archimedes

Salut tous et toutes. Suite à la sortie de la superbe démo de SOTB sur GX4000, la sempiternelle ritournelle de 'Ton Archimedes n'est même pas capable d'en faire autant' est une fois de plus revenue, de la part de ... enfin, vous savez, toujours les mêmes.

Re: Sotb better on Amstrad CPC + than on ST

The CPC+ is fully compatable with GX4000 games, it has the cartridge port and the guts are those of the GX4000. And yes sorry for the mistake X68000<->FM TOWNS. And yes, no surprise to showcase all this there is the usage of generated code ... The really smart thing to do is to have only the generat...

Re: Sotb better on Amstrad CPC + than on ST

It is a demo, man : stop this childish behaviour. That has nothing to do with a game. I see you are French, I am French too, and you are a disgrace. Looks like an Amiga fanboy retard's remark. It is not Gamopat, here, it is the atari-forum. It is a stunning work for the Amstrad (and that's for the P...

Re: Inexpensive RTC just wire in?

I have no idea if this can help, but in case you choose an I2C interfaced RTC chip, you could choose one where some settings (for configuration purposes) can be retained, too. The Archimedes use this, and it is still being manufactured, and is very cheap : https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/data-sheet/PCF8...

Is it the 2.5 version (with sound enhancement, from 1997 ?)
Reading the disk names, it must be the very 1st version.

Have you got a way I could send you the latest, enhanced version ?

Oh well I am again going to talk about the Archie. Systems pre RISC PC.(So, that's ARM2, ARM3, ARM250 based machines). They all have either RISC OS 2 or RISC OS 3.

BIN purchase on Ebay, what is that exactly

Hi all.

Saw this, saw the price, brain had a sudden 'purchase DMA'.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162639957643

Now I wonder how good it is ... I think it is but well I do not own a TT yet ...
Any idea ?

I bought the job lot (5 units).
If anyone wants one, just let me know.
