Greetings to all Enterprise community, is a pleasure for me to be part of this legendary site.

My nick is ron, but my name is Rodrigo. I am Spanish and I have a website dedicated to the micro computer and machines from the 80. Although my English is quite rusty I would like to thank the opportunity to participate in your forum dedicated to Enterprise.

I own an Enterprise 128 ( UK ) and came with no Basic Cartidge, so I used the ZOZOSOFT EXOS 2.6 ROM on a 64K Eprom and my Enterprise and me are really happy !

For a first post I have not much to tell, I brought the Enterprise to several fairs and retro events, the machine being more valued in all aspects.

For me, it's  the perfect 8 bit computer, is the best of the 8 bit that were made in the '80s. By the way, we're several users in Spain, I would like to be a brigde between our communuty and yours.

I 've made several videos with the Enterprise, you can watch at youtube.com/rondreamcast

I also ported in 2005 Ep128Emu ( Istvan Varga) as EntepriseDC for the Sega Dreamcast


So, I urgently need a disk controller, my Enterprise claims for one !




The picture was taken in 2008


I already know that i'm the user # 333, haahahah ;-)

Welcome!

Good to hear news from Spain!
For a few years we have had a Spanish member who send a scanned Spanish programming book and some brochures. These are available on my web page.
He also made Spanish versions from some ROMs.

Basically the Enterprise is the computer. 

We have high hopes to get reasonably priced controllers or somehow have a functional clones to do and thus have an Enterprise who are not dependent on the cassette tape loads.

In few words, an Enterprise without the disk controller is lame. All the software capacities and posibilities are reduced to using load tapes or audio. Even with the fastloads. To develop'm not at all emulators friend, there is nothing like the real machine.

And I have a terrible obsession program testing CP / M running under Enterprise.

There're many topics to talk, thankyou very much for your welcome.

Hello Ron, welcome !

I saw your video(s) on youtube :D

Hard to find a disk controller, I could bought a clone in 2000 from a guy who made them in the nineties, he had only 2 piece, and none of them was working, but one could be repaired. May be here you can find somebody who have spare, and occasionally appears in eBay. If you have a chance to create PCB then it would be easier to create one, documentation is available.

Good luck. :)
