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

Marcof,

Clip plays fine for me - are you sure the stuttering in the voice is not intended? Its "Max Headroom" - a 1980's character (was supposed to be a computer malfunctioning) - so the stutter in voice is how its supposed to be.

Cheers

Guys,

I received the DVD and I've uploaded the .dv files to the FTP site on Friday.

They will need converting to something smaller/easier to view though !!

Zozo - are you looking into converting them?

Cheers

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 Geco (and Zozo) :) The keyboard mapping is going to be very useful as there is no documentation with the one I've bought on ebay.

I'm guessing its the standard version - and it will be a few days before I receive it from the seller. If it is the standard one I will try and get round to upgrading it based on Zozo's links as having to load from tapes will not be a good thing  ;-)

Cheers

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

Oh - and I won an auction for a Spectrum emulator for the Enterprise - no documentation and the only things I've seen have been in Hungarian (anyone have any good learn Hungarian software???)

Is there any English information on how to use this? Zozo sent me the link to upgrading it to read disk images etc. - but is there anything about how to use it normally?

Also - any idea how compatible this is with the Spectrum? Does everything work?

Cheers

Thanks Zozo :D I think the way the membranes die - we need as many as possible :D But one will at least get my EP128 back up and running !!

I've had a reply from rwapservices regarding the membranes - 500 is indeed the minimum quantity with costs around £12.50 per membrane plus shipping - or £6000 plus shipping in total  :shock:

So looks like thats a non-starter unless demand picks up - I would happily buy a few for spares - but not 400+ :lol:

Cheers

Input devices / Enterprise Keyboard Membranes
« on: 2007.August.10. 22:53:00 »
Guys,

I know their is a company in the UK who will do a production run of Enterprise Membranes but with a minimum of 500. I've asked them to let me know how much a production run would cost - as I cant see many people outside of this forum needing one. The question is - do people need a new membrane or two and how much (in UK pounds) would we be prepared to pay?

I dont want to start a business selling them but happy to find out if the forum as a group can do a deal for them.

Does anyone want new membranes ???

Cheers

Thanks Geco - not that bothered about the filled in planets - more the frame rate - one of the reasons I bought a 2nd processor for my bbc was to play Elite a bit faster  :)

Surprised people havent played it much over there - here its considered one of the greatest games of all time.

Cheers

Tricky
