MOD files on Firebee

Hi all. I just received my Firebee and I must say it's a lovely piece of art. I like music and have tested that Aniplay can play MP3 etc on the Firebee. But is there any way to play MOD files? Also I would like to know if there is any list of programs that has been tested on the Firebee? Thanks in a...

Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

It could be that the NVRAM have been corrupted. Have a look at this site http://www.holmerup.com/index2.html.
Under "Trouble shooting" you will find some info about it. There is a program you can download to reset it from floppy.

Re: 3 FireBees arrived

Three months and no updates regarding the cases.
I sent a email to acpinfo@firebee.org but I got it in return as if the adress didn't exist.
Anyone have any info about the status of the cases, is it still problem with the supplier
of the cases?

Re: [Solved?] CT60e Which are the reset pins to reset the clock speed back to default?

You can always boot the Falcon in 030 mode and set another clock on the CT60 from there.
That's the way I have solved it when my CT60/63 have been overclocked.

Re: Recapping -which type of electrolytic capacitors?

I have recapped four Falcon MB's by now using capacitors from Vishay. Their AS and ASM series had good equivalent in both size and specs as the old axial ones. For the radial I used the RSU serie. All four Falcon's have worked like a charm after that, but they didn't really had any issues before eit...

I also have error message about the temperature readings when I boot up. But it's not always, and when I use higher MHz I get this error message more often. But the readings seems to be quite accurate, I get around 58°C when I push it really hard. But I have a heatsink with a fan. Me too! I have no...

Re: SuperVidel + CT60e Woes.

Don't forget that thing about the SV having a jumper that removes noise from a ct63 bus. Apparently this makes it crash on a ct60e. Ha, yeah I pulled the jumper off to see if it made a difference. Sure did, I just got a black screen for my efforts. My best guess at this point is that it's a really ...
