Zozo,

If you want to win that auction - let me know and I will bid for you - just let me know what your limit is. You can paypal me the money after the auction etc. (and if you dont pay I can always keep the items myself ;) :D )

Cheers

Other option is to swap for an auction in Hungary - would happily swap the software in the ebay auction for a fully working EP128 and disk drive from Budapest rather than using paypal !!

Guys,

Its rare enough that something for the Enterprise appears on ebay - and after bidding for some bits over the last weekend - maybe its worth looking at agreeing a policy where we decide who is bidding on something before hand to limit the total price. I dont mind paying for stuff - but seems a bit pointless if we are bidding against each other when we can all benefit?

Not sure how we can do it - but if anyone wants to suggest anything ???

Cheers

Tricky

Hello Zozo! I did not quite win Sunday's eBay UK EP64 auction (item 270186142585),
despite a max of 212.50 UKP - it seems someone else was more desparate to find an
EP than I was. :D

However, I did win the auction for the schematics and documents. Thus, would you like
me to post you photocopies of all the items I receive? I have already offered to do the
same for the person who won the tapes auction (is that you Tricky?). I will be scanning
the docs for my site anyway, but thought perhaps you'd like some photocopies.

My hunt for an EP continues... will gladly swap a nice SGI for one! :D  (eg. Indy, Indigo2,
O2 or Octane)

Cheers! :)

Ian.

Ian,

Yup - it is me !!

Welcome to the site !! If your looking for an Enterprise - its worth keeping an eye on Vatera as quite a few come up for sale on there (although its in Hungarian) but I know a number of members on here end up buying them from ebay auctions all over Europe.

Will sort out the software for you when it arrives here. In the meantime there is a very good Enterprise emulator called EP32 - im sure some of guys on here can give you the details but I think there is a unix version?? (sorry im wintel).

Cheers

Tricky

As far as I know, EP32 is Win32-only. On the other hand, ep128emu (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ep128emu/) does run on at least one unix platform, and may also have better emulation accuracy. However, compiling on SGI may still be problematic, but with some luck you could get the older version 1.6.1 to run (SDL (http://www.libsdl.org/) and the GNU development tools are needed). The 2.x versions are more advanced, but have more dependencies, and would probably not work.

Despite wanting to find an EP for years, I don't know that much about the hw details
at this point. Do you have a page about the disk controller card? I am intrigued!

Title: Re: Ebay auctions

Definately recommend a disk controller card (EXDOS) - much easier than trying to use tapes (and quicker :) ) - especially since you can pretty much use a PC (or unix box) to download the files and then write them to a 3.5" disk and just stick it in the Enterprise.

The disk controller card allows you to plug in any Shugart 410 compatible floppy (meaning pretty much anything for a BBC model B or 720K PC floppy disk drive) Only thing you will need on top of that (as you can use a PC floppy cable) is a 5v power supply for the disk drive. It's not the neatest solution - would of been better if the EXDOS could of powered the floppy drive but 5v PSU's are easy enough to find even if its just an old PC PSU.

The standard Enterprise cards are just floppy controllers - whereas some modified cards have extra system memory, roms, etc. built into them.

Thanks for that! Yes, sounds like a plan. So would the drives used with Ataris/Amigas be ok?


> Only thing you will need on top of that (as you can use a PC floppy cable) is a 5v power supply for the disk drive.

Not a proble, I'm swimming in PSUs. Should have a 5V unit somewhere.

What's a typical price for a controller card?

Thanks! I did manage to obtain both the card and the bus bridge just after Christmas (eBay items 230201032730 and
230201028468). They cost me rather a lot, but I decided what the hell, they are not going to appear very often,
so I will treat myself for xmas. :D

I have just been testing the card and bridge with a dual-drive unit from a BBC-Master system, everything
seems to work fine! Thankyou for your help! 8)

So that's the storage system sorted out. The next thing I want to do is construct a proper RGB monitor
connection as the RF picture quality is very bad. Has anyone written a clear page on how to do this?


To Tricky: I haven't forgotten about you! I will scan the docs as soon as I can, just been very busy after new
year with work.

Cheers! :)

Yes, I was going to, but I wasn't going to bid that high since I have already obtained a working 5.25" setup, so
don't worry about me.

I was more interested in the peripheral items. Only going to bother with the main system if the bidding hadn't gone
sky high already.


> I also want the EP64 thats appeared  - got 2 EP128's but no 64 !!

Way over my budget. :D  On the other hand, I did spend quite a lot to get the EXDOS card and bridge...


Btw, here is a good book I would recommend:

  http://www.digitalretro.co.uk/

Alas it does not include the Enterprise. I spoke with the author; he said the Enterpise isn't covered because
he couldn't find anyone who had a system he could take pictures of, etc. I said if he ever did a future revision
then he would be welcome to come and take pictures of the EP128 I have; he said sure, that would be great,
though he's not certain yet that he will do a newer edition (he would like to, but has other commitments).

But anyway, it's a very nice book. Excellent pictures. I bought two: one for me, one for my brother for xmas/07.

Ian.

Title: Re: Ebay auctions
Post by: Tricky on 2008.April.04. 13:58:53
Ian,

DigitalRetro is an excellent book - but the absence of the Enterprise was always a weakness - so hopefully if he does a revision and includes it - that would be cool. There are quite a few other machines missing from it that could do with inclusion - one of those books where I would love to take the time to expand it by including more !!

Thanks for the info - I will bid for the 3.5" disk drive - just handy as it includes a PSU! and is a sealed unit as opposed to the current setup which is less than cat proof  ;-)

The EP64 I (we as Zozo wants half of it ;-) ) is the one with 6 days to go at the moment and includes empty cartridges - so its still at reasonable money !!

Cheers

Tricky

You should try to be treated yourself as the "official EP expert of planet Earth", so machines can be sold at higher price if they are "Zozo approved" :) This would have the advantage to gather more information on machines, like the requirement (for Zozo-approved stamp) can include the short history of the machine, serial number, etc etc :)

If it is unused, it might not work, might it? As I know, if those components aren't used for a long time, they may go wrong. (As, for example, the cassette tape players, if you do not use them for many-many years.)

Electrical and mechanical items are different things! For your example the tape player has a lot of rubber parts which can be deformed when not used.

Zozo, on a different note I have a spare 64K internal memory expansion if you
know anyone who might like it.  I was going to upgrade my EP64 but I decided
not to as I already have a EP128.  This is an original EP memory upgrade and
will need to be soldered in.

Many years ago he is got a big heap of vintage computing stuff from a friend who is worked in computer service at lot of times ago.But don't know why included the Nick chip in this package, because he is repaired mostly Commodore machines.

Cheap Arabic EP64. (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Enterprise-64-Not-Working-/181202747838?pt=UK_VintageComputing_RL&hash=item2a308681be)
It is out of order, but I think it is very easy to repair! From the failure details I think (99.999%) the internal 12V PSU circuit doesn't work. (It is used by the PAL video ICs and the internal speaker amplifier.)
It is a very common problem. The TR2 (BC337) transistor is dead, needed to be replaced. It can be damaged again by the dried out C9 capacitor, it's a good idea to replace this, especially if the motherboard uses PHILIPS electrolytic capacitors.

Very good looking boxed EP128 (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RARE-ENTERPRISE-128K-HOME-COMPUTER-VINTAGE-/111247055861?pt=UK_VintageComputing_RL&hash=item19e6d75bf5)

With a strange S/N label! (http://i.ebayimg.com/t/RARE-ENTERPRISE-128K-HOME-COMPUTER-VINTAGE-/00/s/MTYwMFg5MDE=/z/bfkAAOxyUrZSwFpi/$_57.JPG)
See the labels in the inventory. (http://enterprise.iko.hu/inventory.htm) All EP64 have a printed S/N, and PAL1 TV type. The later EP128 machines also have same style S/N, just the TV marked as PAL UHF.
But the first ~5000 (I guess, needed more 4xxx-5xxx photos) have a different style labels: only 5 character long S/N, and different character set. The 4xxx machines have another style characters, probably typewriter used?
All of these marked as PAL.
 Now lok the Ebay machine label: it is a 007238, but the style same with the 04xxx machines!
I have the 007236 (http://enterprise.iko.hu/inventory/128_007236.jpg) machine which is have the normal printed label!

Currently two exception know from the high S/N machines: 009007 (http://enterprise.iko.hu/inventory/128_009007.jpg) and 060134 (http://enterprise.iko.hu/inventory/128_060134.jpg) (I have both :) )
These also marked as PAL.
But the Ebay machine are PAL I/G! I never see same! It is have some difference in video circuit?

I hope somebody from the forum buy it, and can send photos from the motherboard!

Yes, it is ultra rare, I think less than 1000 units produced. Only few existing units known, and until now only two boxed.
Anyway look at the serial numbers the unit numbers are different than the box numbers.
My unit has the own box :-)

Very Interesting one, it is with original EXDOS 1.3 ROM! Previously I see 1.3 ROM only on built in cards of the Enterprise floppy unit. The currently know stand alone cards have 1.0 ROM.
I guess this is from the last produced cards and this is the reason why the labels missing.

Rare one, because ONE TWO EIGHT label replaced by 128K label, only few machine known in this version.
And more extreme rare, because it is have the box, where also over-labeled the English texts with German labels.
Only 2-3 machine known with same box. I have one :-D

As i know when started the Enterprise in Germany exist a language law which is need the full localization. This the reason why the German version Enterprise developed.

Is it worth it's price? (it's english keyboard, a psu and a basic(?) cartridge, yes?) or better wait for another one to pop up...(fully working)
What does "no rf signal" mean? (sorry for such stupid question...)
What about the joystick caps? Can they be obtained somewhere or one should look for a 3d printer for that?
Oh and by the way (somewhat offtopic), would it be hard to build yourself a joystick interface for old 9pin c64 joysticks?

Regular connection with antenna cable don't work.
But also when working it is very low quality picture, for using the machine with good quality, sharp picture need a RGB Scart cable. This is why I say: the RF output not important.
Anyway I think the RF output can be repaired easy.

There is the simple wiring. (http://enterprise.iko.hu/cables/Joy.png) Not too complicated. But the autofire don't work with this solution. Need to modify the joystick, or build active joystick converter with few IC and diodes.

Btw, it's important to declare, that using FPGA is _not_ an emulation but a hardware level stuff, as you would solder things together, just here the "soldering" of logic cells etc can be done inside the FPGA :) But it's very different thing from an emulator running on another computer ...

I don't understand this added tax or with other name "Import charges". I haven't seen it before, only this (or previous) year has been comming up.
Normally when I buy something little (20x20*20 cm), it is marked as gift, and shouldn't be pay extra fees. The import charges has to be payed if it's more than x Dollar, or a big volume.
And why I don't have to pay extra, when I buy from China?
Title: Re: Ebay auctions
Post by: gflorez on 2015.April.06. 18:44:22
I think it isn't a problem of foreign authorities. In Spain sometimes they do not charge, but sometimes they even want to include the transport to calculate the taxes if it is displayed in the bill. You can't complain, just pay what they tell you or never will got what you've already purchased.

Now  exists a new way. You pay a fixed tax to the seller and he declares it as paid in origin.  You can distinguish these Ebay items, especially from USA, which have a similar text: "Customs taxes provided".

About the Chinese products I think that the taxes depend on international agreements with the CE. Another aspect is the free delivery, they take advantage of hollows in container loads to bring small items here. Its free but can last a month or not arrive ever....

I'm very afraid... :cry:

The shipping company lost the track... (latest update on the tracking at November 17.) The seller give back the money, but money <> rare Enterprise :cry:

He is promised if the package returned somehow then will try again with different shipping company.

I enjoyed very much a software speaking library the early Amiga computers had. I managed  the family business program to ask for data to my father  in "Spanglish"... much the same as Speakeasy seems to do.

I decoded the program and it was based on easy English rules, not directly on vocal sounds. Then, I planned to do Spanish rules for it, but that work is still undone...

This idea came to my mind.
Perhaps, just the fast, before the rise of All-In-One, something smaller EXDOS + Gotek/HxC + LCD + a little memory (1 MB) + a bridge (FlexiBridge) for expansion ?
It was possible to achieve in a few months.
I'll try to estimate costs.
It would be looks like the pictures (colleague product). Photo 1 (http://images75.fotosik.pl/586/17453a4bb29a9952.jpg) Photo 2 (http://images75.fotosik.pl/600/4498494bd6d415a9.jpg)
Title: Re: Ebay auctions
Post by: gflorez on 2016.May.17. 13:59:56
The problem with this EXDOS only solution is that you still have a basic 128k unit. Your idea is better, with 1 MB memory the user doesn't need to open the machine. And Flexibridge for future expansion modules(yours).

You even can try a super EXDOS with overclocked WD1772 to manage DD disks... Ask Zozo.

And a bigger Rom to put some utilities.

Maybe not with a case, but building clones of the main chips used in 8-bit computers is not unusual, there is even a recent Hungarian project (https://hackaday.io/project/11460-fpgated) to reimplement the TED chip used in the Commodore 16/Plus/4.

The pinout and details can be found here (https://www.ftcommunity.de/ftComputingFinis/interfte.htm).

It can have interesting uses, aside of managing the robot arm, because the interface allows the control of four motors, switches and sensors:

But, here in Spain only the EP128 was offered....

The original unopened joystick adapter in the box (http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/~DYAAOSwUKxYjKxV/s-l1600.jpg) confirms it, because I knew the technician of the seller on Spain. They manufactured their own adapters and cables. I bought from them a Monitor RGB cable.

On the other side, the main plug is not of the English type, so probably it comes from another European country.

I am really angry now. It can happen only in the german E-Bay.
I saw an EP128 boxed version. There was no minimum price given, so I tried with 105 Euro. After 1 day the seller saw, that the price is not going up, as he expected (maybe because lack of interest), and 2 days before the end of the auction, the price was still under 100 Euro, so he simply deleted the bidding. Reason: The auction has a failure.
Title: Re: Ebay auctions
Post by: gflorez on 2017.August.06. 12:06:36
May be he didn't put the offer on the correct class. Then it was not found on a normal searching where all the people can see it.

If I put something to sell, I would want the max visibility.

On the other side, Ebay has restricted zones on Germany just like on UK, only for a limited territory.

Computer is similar to the MSX, but not MSX-compatible.

I saw many adverts in old magazines for that  computer.

Interesting historical facts about that computer (and why it is not very famous):
Quote
The Russian schools system was looking to place a contract for systems in some 64,000 schools, to be used to provide education and training for robotics and control applications. In an attempt to secure the contract, Memotech worked with the Norwegian company, Norbit Elektronikk, to develop an add-on electronics unit to be offered alongside the CP/M based FDX disk system and with Oxford University to develop a Russian (Cyrillic) version of the system and BASIC ROMs, along with Russian documentation and keyboard. Memotech invested heavily in the development of this machine, but ultimately, lost out to Yamaha who won the contract with an MSX computer. This order was subsequently radically scaled back, only a few thousand were delivered, and the Russian government's aspiration to expand the use of computers in state schools faltered.

By the time of the Russian bid, the writing was already on the wall, not just for Memotech, but for the majority of UK home computer companies of the time. The Russian deal was the last throw of the dice for Memotech and when it failed, Memotech had nowhere to go and the company was put into administrative receivership.

But on the other side I would like to get one original parallel cable if this is really one of them. And also an original RGB cable if you have a spare one(you showed one of them on the pictures you sent me). I think that these connectors complement a lot with the overall design of the computer. My hand made ones adapt very good to the holes and edge, but aren't so stylish.

About the other connectors... EnterMice covers the rest of the holes much better....

No, I'm not interested on the tapes, thanks, I don't want to return to that era.... But may be my friend Sinclair200 can buy you some. He is a collector of all type of things. I can ask him. Put a price.

After the first 15-20 years I started think these are fakes. But in the last ten years we found many never seen things (for example the most of Level 9 adventures). Soo probably not (all) fakes :-)

I love the style of Tim Box as Editor of the Newspaper "Private Enterprise" from 1986:

Quote from that Newspaper:
===Editorial===
Welcome to issue 5 of "Private Enterprise". There are, no doubt, a few questions you would like to ask us, well I will try to anticipate them and provide some kind of answers.
 The first will no doubt be "why is this issue so late". To answer this look to the letters page.
 The second might be "what is the meaning of the front cover". The answer, of course is a very cryptic one. Enterprise, as you will no doubt relaise, are in the classic "Catch 22" situation; no software, no sales, no sales, no software. Hence the neverending struggle. The question now is where are they going-up or down. We now belive we have the answer. We were going to reveal it all in this edition but have since been instructed by Enterprise not to disclose it. You will however find out next issue (if have not already heard).
 The last question I can see you asking is "Why is this edition so small". The answer lies in printing costs and a lack of material to print. By that I mean printing costs are so high that we have to justify the inclusion if all the pages by high quality material. Thus as you probably will have realised, we short of.
 Continuing along the theme of last issues editorial I bring up the subject of PR or the lack of it. Enterprise seem to have chosen to ignore the recommendations on cheap advertising that I made in issue 4. I now say this to them. It may be true that nobody wants to review conversions but I know of one magazine that prints what has been released even if it doesn't review it and that's better than nothing. How the heck do you intend to let prospective customers know that there is a software base (if a bit small) if you can't even be bothered to tell the press?
 Finally we bring you good news. Issue 6 is our anniversary edition. "Private Enterprise" will be one year old. So to celebrate this monumental feat issue 6 will be given face-lift a "new look" magazine.

Hungarian translation of the last post.

Magyar fordítása az előző hozzászólásnak:

Nagyon tetszik a stílusa Tim Boxnak, a "Private Enterprise" lap szerkesztőjének 1996-ból:

Idézet az újságból:
===Szerkesztői köszöntő===
Üdvözlök mindenkit "Private Enterprise" 5. számában. Kétségtelen, felvetődött néhány kérdés, melyeket én most megpróbálok előrevetíteni és megválaszolni őket.
 Az első kétségtelenül "miért jelent meg ez a lapszám ilyen későn". Erre a levelezési rovatban adunk választ.
 A második kérdés "mit jelent ami a borítón van". A válasz természetesen nagyon rejtélyes. Az Enterprise, mint ahogyan mindenki észrevette már, a klasszikus "22-es csapdája" helyzetben van; nincs szoftver, nincs értékesítés, nincs értékesítés, nincs szoftver. Ezért a véget nem érő küzdelem. A kérdés most az, hogy mikor fog végre felfutni vagy zuhanni. Azt hiszem már megvan a válasz. Mindent meg akartunk írni ebben a kiadásban, de azóta az Enterprise utasításba adta, hogy ne tegyük közzé. Ezt következő kiadásba (ha majd még nem értesült volna az olvasó), akkor meg fogja találni.
 Az utolsó kérdés: "Miért olyan rövid az e havi kiadás?" A válasz a nyomtatási költségek és a megírandó tartalom hiánya. Ez alatt azt értem, hogy a nyomtatási költségek olyan magasak, hogy az összes oldalt jó minőségű tartalommal kell ellátnunk. Így ahogyan valószínűleg észrevették, ezek hiányában voltunk.
 Az utolsó kérdések témakörét folytatva a marketing és annak hiányát hoznám fel. Úgy tűnik, hogy az Enterprise úgy döntött, hogy figyelmen kívül hagyja az olcsó hirdetésekre vonatkozó ajánlásunkat, amelyet az előző lapszámban dobtam fel. Most ezt nekik írom. Igaz, hogy senki sem akar elemzést írni a konverziókról, de tudok egy olyan magazinról, amely legalább közzéteszi a kiadottat, még akkor is, ha nem elemzi, és ez jobb, mint a semmi. Honnan a fenéből tudhatnák meg a potenciális vásárlók, hogy létezik egy szoftverbázis (még ha kicsi is), ha az Enterprisenál nem is fáradoznak értesíteni az újságot?
 Végül jó híreket hoztunk. A következő (6.) lapszám a mi évfordulós kiadásunk. A "Private Enterprise" újság egyéves lesz. Így, hogy megünnepeljük ezt a monumentális eseményt, 6. lapszám ráncfelvarráson esik át és "új külsejű" magazin lesz.

Yes. But at least let's try to ask him. In many cases, I could agree with the seller about international shipping, even when it is originally not specified. But it can depend on your country, it is possible he says no for Hungary, but says yes for England (for example).
Title: Re: Ebay auctions
Post by: pear on 2018.June.15. 15:20:45
My point was that the price will not be a determinant.
Not everyone wants to ask.

I saw the description of the item. He is a hunagrian guy who sells the EP, he wants to make money. In germany the collectors giving out more money for that treasure.
Title: Re: Ebay auctions

Where you see this?

I think it is a German huy who is previously bought the machine from Hungary.

, he wants to make money. In germany the collectors giving out more money for that treasure.
Then more better idea put to the UK Ebay, because much more interest for the EP in UK.
Title: Re: Ebay auctions
Post by: gflorez on 2018.June.20. 15:21:23
I don't think he wants to make huge amounts of money. A proffesional seller doesn't risk to have a poor sale starting the bid on only an Euro, nor sells only in one country.

On the other side, He knows about the Mephisto64 variant. Does the average Hungarian Enterprise owner know that?

On the state/condition of the item he says:


“Ich verkaufe alle meine Klassik-Computer als defekt, auch wenn ich sie geprüft habe und sie scheinbar gut funktionieren. Allerdings kann man bei so alten Geräten einfach keine Garantie übernehmen.”

"I sell all my classic computers as broken, even though I've tested them and they seem to work well. However, you can not guarantee with such old devices. "

So I think he is honest, not a regular seller, but in the past he has put some other computers for sale.

He speaks in the description like an old man to a small children, with no respect. Like the owner were friend of the buyer. This is not common in Germany. Only foreigner makes this, because it is easier to speak, they don't understand the difference. There is no that kind of speech in the english language.
 (In spanish there is two way also: "tu" or "usted", the second one is with more respect)
 (In hungarian : "magázás")

 Other side, no german never would say, "learn the hungarian to understand how to use the Enterprise" (because tha manual is hungarian).
 This is a Hungarian guy, living in Germany. He probably doesn't know, that he can have more money on E-Bay UK.

 He started a "1 Euro" bid, because more people will see that as usual. He knows, there was no EP on the Ebay before, that's why he knows someone will pay good money!

It was only politics. On that era new hard laws of "germanization" of the computers were introduced. On Spain happened similar.

Is for that they added a low quality paper sticker over the stock plastic one....  They changed "ONE TWO EIGHT" by a big "128K".

Numbers aren't dependant on languages.
