    It's required for Wolf3d. But you also want an accelerator for that. I don't have one so I didn't spend much time with it. You can also use the 4 megs of RAM as a RAM disk, but that's less useful...

    Isn't the cost of the CFFA largely due to the CPLD? All flash devices that use a CPLD or FPGA are in the $150 range(CFFA, 1541U-II, NES PowerPak). Flash devices that use firmware on eprom or flash...

    Is there a reason to use a "midi card" instead of a game port with midi adaptor?

    What about mouse.com? Is there any situation where ctmouse isn't a better alternative? And DOS4GW should be replaced with DOS32/a anywhere you find it.

    That is just baffling. I'm glad I never tried it. Why would Apple do something like this? At least these days when Apple arbitrarily changes peripheral specifications, they use a different port...

    OT, but I went to the Brownville flea market last weekend looking for a CRT. Not even a multisync or anything unusual, just a nice 19" CRT to replace my failing one. I didn't see any electronics at...

    You may have been working with too much dark. If you had some more dark suckers, you probably wouldn't have let the vacuum out.

    That's a shame. You'd think Vancouver would have a few people capable and interested in saving a U-haul's worth of computer history. Hope it doesn't end up as trash.

    That's awesome. If there were enough interest to put together a kit, I would definitely buy one. That would save us all on shipping ICs from China.

    How essential is the RAM for games of this era? I have a PIII that supports 384MB (3x128) of RAM max. Are there games for 9x that won't work on XP that will have trouble with less than 512MB?

    FWIW, I don't use 115.2kbps with ADTPro because my modern computer can't handle it. I've never been able to transfer faster than 19200bps to any computer with any cable on this machine. Thankfully...

    I currently have a VGA card in mine and 768K ram. It's not necessary to remove them. And according to the Vswitch manual, 768K is required.



    I agree, the Tandy modes are a lot of fun. That's...

    My understanding is that there is no upper memory area on these machines. If you have 768K the top 128K are used for video memory and nothing else.

    Perhaps, but it seems like vswitch is doing a pretty generic thing. Just setting the vectors to the location where the video routines can be found, and then calling Int10h to change the mode. I did...

    These are the most capable models, and therefore the most desirable. You did pretty well at $15 each. You can probably triple that easily on eBay if you want.

    I've been using sled on my tandy. It's small and fast and fairly featureful. Though I'd drop it for a second for a good vi clone. Any recommendations?

    Yes, it reports 768K on the CGA monitor when I boot. I've also run vgafixc before doing any of the above.

    Yeah, I think that's it exactly. It's a nice hard disk, glad I don't have to park it. I doubt this disk would fit into any laptop though. Thanks for the advice.
