This is a perfect opportunity to also test the ScoreTrack MIDI Rom, that has been fixed by Geco.

Just enter the SYNTH mode executing :SF3 AMODE 7   and then press the Enter key. Once done you can enter the ScoreTrack Rom you have already installed, with :ST  + Enter.

Is there special MIDI-files you have to use with ScoreTrack?

I tried the above method with a couple of MIDIs from here https://enterpriseforever.com/sound/midi/msg80702/#new but I always get an error saying that the file does not work with version 1.0 of ScoreTrack. ScoreTrack sees the .MID file.

If you - as I have had - has hardware problems with your EP machines I can highly recommend Commodore Szerviz http://commodoreszerviz.hu/.

Zoltan - who owns the shop - has fixed my Egyptian EP64 and is in the proces of fixing my EP128 which I thought was dead and gone. The prices has been very fair and there has been excellent communication along the way.

All in all highly recommend!! :lol:

This is a bit of topic but what is the difference between the different issues?

And I can confirm that the Egyptian EP64's are issue 6. At least my Egyptian EP64 is issue 6 :)

Some adapters travelling from Spain to the Netherlands. The large PCBs at the left side are the AMSDAP, a CPC bus expander with 2 MSX slots. Hans kindly shared the diagram design with me when I was trying to make the M-Slot.

Found the solution. Stupid error from my side! Everything works fine now :)

As i see you installed 20200903 dfu, i installed it also, i did not have any problem with it. This dfu contained both cpld and arm update, did you perform cpld update also ?
Found the solutions. Apparently I managed to forget to update CPLD and somehow it did not complain about it. Fixed now.

Sorry for the problems. I can't tests it until Monday, so better ask Hans on the Slack.

No problem! Just checking if others have the same issue :) The august DFU works great.

Today a new SF3 update has been released. You can find it on the official SF3 TMTLogic Drive page.

The enhancements of the SF3_EP_20200903.dfu are:

-The new SF3Boot.Rom version from Geco(also on the Drive) has been added inside the DFU. If no INI file is found or any error is detected, the SF3Boot Rom will be injected on the 60h segment.
-The F40 command to swap Audio modes have been expanded to select also the two MIDI modes, and now the SF3Boot.Rom benefits from this on the  new :SF3 AMODE command. Now the SF3 audio mode can be modified with a simple EXOS command.

Is there a bug in this release?

I have tried updating but afterwards the SF3 refuses to load the ini file and just goes into default 512K mode. Furthermore it does not autoload SF3BOOT.ROM when it can not find the ini file.

The DFU from august works fine on my setup.

It ofcourse can be my ini file that is not compatible with the new DFU but I do not think so.

I can take this to SLACK if that is the best :)

Just curious but did you replace anything to get RGB/scart or was that going for the start? :)

Despite appearances, this is good orientation...

Ok. So the way it is mounted originally is the right way - despite what the schematics say? :)

Hmmm. Interesting. When I did my recap Ioriented my new C9 as it was on the board. + to the right. So I have the same layout as Wolfgang.

Here are the old. And here the new.

Not to hijack the thread but maybe this error is causing my noise. If it is an error, that is!

Hardware / Noise on RGB signal. Suggestions?
« on: 2020.September.15. 21:18:39 »
I managed to recap my "new" Egyptian EP and update to EXOS 2.4 :)

The machine works but I still have a strange noise problem on the RGB signal. See here.

Any suggestions how to find the source for that?

As far as I can see the components are fine but maybe something "broke" when I turned it on the fist time?

At first boot the machine was dead. Red LED on but no picture. With the help from this thread i managed to get it going.

The 5V rail was fine but 12V was way too low which cause the TR2 to fry (maybe killed by a bad C9). I replaced TR2 and C9 and the machine came to life :) But now I have a noise problem (see video).

To cure that I then recapped the board (took a while :) ). That is finished now but the noise is still there.

Any suggestions to where I should start looking for the error?
