One member, from zx.pk.ru forum
I found the thread, trying to read with google translate :oops:

Somebody asked about the enterprise.8bit.hu, the actual version at http://ep.homeserver.hu/ and also mirrored at http://gafz.enterpriseforever.com/
I also can recommend my page for a lot of scanned books, magazines, documents, etc: http://enterprise.iko.hu/

Now I'm collecting (not very fast) information to make FAQ about EP (Russian only).
All links will be added.

Not understand the question. Are you interested in the scheme? Or there is any doubt that it will work at EP?

The standard joysticks with Autofire (for example QuickShot II) don't work with Enterprise when using simple wired joystick interface (just the AutoFire not works).
I thought there is the question: how possible to work with Enterprise.
a) modify the joystick, replace the cable with direct Enterprise cable, and adding transistor to the Autofire circuit.
b) build a active joystick adapter (originaly developed by BoxSoft), which can work with any joysticks

I made a translation of article with competition in magazine "Техника - молодёжи".
Who can give answers for all questions? :)

DOZEN COMPUTERS – FOR BEST ANSWER!
Magazine "Техника – молодежи"
together with the firm Enterprise Computers GmbH
announce a competition:
"5 x 8" or "Questionnaire of Mr. Enterprise"


 Dear admirers of computing! For you, valiant knights of "smart" electronics, give the opportunity to show off knowledge, and at the same time ... to win the object of the passion, saving several thousand of rubles earned by the sweat. To do this need just to win a duel with a worthy opponent - but not with some kind of the mythical Hydra, and with our very real Questionnaire. Which is not simple - five chapters, with eight toothed questions each! We assume that some of them you will not be able to overcome. Do not despair! Even if you have coped only with the half job - in any case send your answers to the editorial office of "TM" with the note "For the competition" 5 x 8 ". But hurry: emails sent (according to the stamp on the envelope) later than 30 April of this year [1992] will not be considered.
 The winners will be rewarded according to merit!
 First prize - a personal computer in configuration:
  • Enterprise 128k
  • color video monitor
  • floppy disk drive controller
  • Printer
 Second prize - PC including:
  • Enterprise 128k
  • color video monitor
  • floppy disk drive controller
 Third prize - PC in configuration:
  • Enterprise 128k
  • Monochrome display
  • floppy disk drive controller
 Three prizes for fourth place, each prize - PC including:
  • Enterprise 128k
  • Monochrome display
  • cassette recorder
 Six prizes for the fifth result:
  • Enterprise 128k complete with a cassette recorder
 38 incentive prizes:
  • microcalculator
 And also - souvenirs: pens, lighters, stickers.
 All computers russified and with software.
 Good luck in the fight against the five-domed Questionnaire!

Chapter One is quite harmless. Short biography.
1. Mr. personal computer named Enterprise... Where did he come from? His age?
2. Which company and when developed the basic system software?
3. Decode, translate and explain the abbreviation GmbH in the name of the manufacturer.
4. Who represents their interests in our country?
5. What are the two basic models of the Enterprise you know and how do they differ?
6. In a which number of "TM" the computer for the first time mentioned?
7. In which countries it is most prevalent?
8. This question we give in two versions:
a) For owners of Enterprise: How do you use your computer?
b) For those who wishing to purchase Enterprise: What are the problems you hope to solve with it? Which original non-standard work you would offer him?

Chapter Two, a little bloodthirsty. Special peculiarities. Temperament
1. If the black colour of Mr. Enterprise does not mean its African origin, then in what business here?
2. Heart of the Enterprise - what kind of and how fast beats?
3. In what the main likeness of the Enterprise, Spectrum, Atari, Commodore?
4. To what extent are compatible Mr. Enterprise and Mrs. IBM PC?
5. How many segments of RAM can be simultaneously connected to the microprocessor of the Enterprise? Why is that?
6. Which segments are reserved for video memory in the Enterprise-128?
7. What determines its performance?
8. Mr. Enterprise the true toiler: when it works, to it becomes hot. Whether there is a communication between high-speed performance of the computer with traditional element basis and heat which it emits?

Chapter Three, a toothy. External аffairs
1. Under what conditions can be used Enterprise with the domestically produced color TV as a monitor?
2. The floppy-drive is connected to the Enterprise directly, "end-to-end". What gives?
3. Than a micro-diskette (3,5 inches) is better than mini-diskettes (5,25 inches)?
4. How to empirically determine the connector pin assignments for connecting a printer with parallel interface?
5. To what limits is possible to expand the Enterprise RAM? Why no more?
6. How would you define the capacity of the I/O buffer when the computer works with a tape recorder?
7. How to make information exchange between Enterprise and IBM PC, without using external drives?
8. How to read on a computer that is running with MS-DOS, russian text written on Enterprise (and vice versa)?

Chapter Four, more toothy. Means of communication
1. With what operating systems works Enterprise?
2. Whose recommendations were considered by the IS-BASIC developers?
3. You work in the environment of IS-BASIC in text mode. Specify all known methods of cleaning your screen.
4. Why in the TEXT 80 mode it is impossible to display the symbol occupying all character location in width?
5. What (approximately) volume of EDITOR device buffer in the built-in text editor WORD PROCESSOR (WP)?
6. WP allows you to save(write) text in two ways: in the SAVE mode and PRINT mode. What is the difference?
7. In CP/M system the type of the file is defined by extension of his name (.COM, .SYS, .BAT, etc.). How differ files in EXOS system?
8. What is a "system call"? How it is implemented in systems CP/M and EXOS?

Chapter Five, the most ferocious. Invitation to dialogue
1. Necessary to transform (by elementary method) the straight font for output to display in italic. Give the appropriate algorithm.
2. Make the most high-speed program (or at least algorithm) for russifications of the Enterprise.
3. What effect will the incorrect exit from the block DEF, that is, the transition is not to the end of the block (END DEF), and on the line beyond, during operation the BASIC program, repeatedly using this block? Explain the situation mechanism.
4. Write on the Assembler (or in machine codes) the subprogramme of output of byte on the parallel interface of the printer with use of a system call of CP/M or EXOS.
5. Do the same – for sequence of bytes (for example, string), but already with a direct call the appropriate subprogramme of the OS.
6. Describe the short, but "cunning" algorithm found you allowing to reach unexpected effect in game or application-oriented the BASIC programs.
7. What is necessary for further promoting of the Enterprise in our country?
8. Invent the bright, memorable motto for advertizing of this computer.

Of course. :)
Later they simplified a task and didn't consider some questions.

You can read (googletranslated) about it here and here.

I OCR-ed all articles and later I will add them on the site, that it was possible to read them at least using online translator.
