Re: Cumulus Firware Compilation

Hi Chema, you can try to format your SD Card with "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool". Here is link to it on 3rd party site: http://hp-usb-disk-storage-format-tool.software.informer.com/ Or you can g00gle for above string. This formatter creates MBR on USB-sticks and SD-Cards which is OK for all OS's....

Re: Cumulus Issues

wow, Chema, this is interesting - if I understand correctly, you connect first Silicebit's Amplibus to Oric, then you plug Cumulus buffer board and the Cumulus itself ? And this works for you? If so is it possible to get Silicebit's Amplibus schematics?

Re: Cumulus Firware Compilation

I'll be happy to join the party too. :) Here is my experience: I successfully compiled PIC firmware and programed cumulus - this fixed 2 cumuluses (mine and jorodr's one) after trying to connect them to Pravetz-8D. Under "fixed" I mean display, buttons and SDcard interface are working as expected, b...

Re: Atmos logo sticker missing

Photo-paper is great but I think it will need "lamination" of the surface against touching with wet fingers,
i.e. one layer transparent scotch tape or transparent spray lacquer or something like that.
Else, your great software absolutely requires hardware in such fine looking boxes! ;)

Re: Atmos logo sticker missing

I agree - small letters are fine.
What will you use to make the sticker? I mean color laser printer and sticker paper or something else?
I don't have any other idea how this can be done in better way. :?:

Re: Atmos logo sticker missing

Hi Chema, first thank you very much for pointing me to 'inikscape' - it's free, it's standard package in my favorite Linux-distro and has more features than I'll ever use :D. I touched the horizontal red bar and 'ATMOS48K' - now they are parallel to the horizontal edges. If you use guide lines you'l...

Re: hello all

I was curious about the differences in both taps. Bas2tap in 'reverse' mode produced nice basic sources :). I don't think there was transfer problem in dave's tap, but musepat's version looks like more optimized and there is signature too: 15035 PRINT"pomped by T.Syrzisko and L.maillard" Use any vis...

Re: Video output without SCART/RGB

There shouldn't be lag. I have tried 2 different scalers and they worked. Only drawback is the BIG wire mess: RGB-SCART cable (+ eventually power adapter cord) + SCART-HDMI box + power adapter cord + HDMI cable = real spaghetti :). The price 20-30 EUR can be important factor too. And if you buy some...
