Good guide!

A question:

The EP SF3 you have received has an extra lead soldered to the pin1 on the CPC connector. It is needed because Hans got out of free programmable pins during development. Hans is thinking a solution for it, but until that, an EP SF3 can't be connected to the other families of computers.

Does this mean that I cannot connect my SF3 to a MSX or a CPC even if I reflash it with the right firmware?

Thanks for all your work with this :)

A couple of questions. And sorry in advance if this has been answered before. I have been away for a rather long time ...

What is the approx. price for the SymbiFace3?

Can I use this busexpander? I know I have to the special 12 euro adaptor for the symbiface card.

And a related question? Is there any news on EP support for GFX-NINE? As far as I remember you where working on that also.

Thank you in advance!

It looks like our beloved machine is about to get some nice PR soon:


Really looking forward to see what RMC can make of it.

He has redesigned the PCB to put it inside.

I have not followed this thread in detail so sorry if this question has been answered elsewhere. The SymbiFace3 is installed inside the EP?

Wanted / Case for SD adaptor
« on: 2019.October.05. 12:35:15 »
I have been so lucky to get hold of a SD adaptor (latest version).

Does anybody have a suitable case to many that they would like to part with? I will of course pay for it.

At the moment the card just hangs a bit out of the rom-bay and even thou it works it does not seem like a good permanent solution :)

BTW: Is this the best site for instructions etc. for the SD Adaptor? https://szergitata.blog.hu/2015/05/04/enterprise_128_sd_adapter_premium_quick_start_guide_uk

Just a quick effort to revive this idea :)

In his latest video Retro Man Cave is on a road trip where he visits a micro machine museum that has a Enterprise 64 on display. The owner of the museum says, that the Enterprise was very late into market but that "it was the computer Britain ever made". RMC says "Realy! That is definitely going on my list, then" :-)

See the clip around 7 minutes in:


Anybody up for a donation? :lol:

Hardware / Donation af EP to Retro Man Cave
« on: 2019.April.06. 07:21:17 »
Hi all

I regularly watch the Retro Man Cave channel on YouTube:


Tha latest episode is a so called "Trash to Treasure" where he restores and old 8 bit and tells the story behind. The latest episode is about the Dragon computer but he has done many others before.

RMC has A LOT of subscribers.

Should we - as a community - donate an old broken EP128 (with som extras) to him so that he can fix and tell the story of our beloved machine? I would be happy to chip in.

Just a suggestion to get the word more out :-)
