Re: PS/2 key mappings

Maybe there is a way to turn the private ram into a state machine that handles ps2 state properly. I'll let it percolate a while. Any change has to be able to fit in the same space or less on the fpga since it is so full at this point.

Re: No more updates @tbblue @gitlab

One more thing I've noticed but what I haven't reproduced: My Next configured to run at 28MHz (RUN AT 3) and 64 chars in the AUTOEXEC.BAS. This has led to different issues in the past. What I have seen using the current version, is that after fiddling around with the BASIC editor and the command li...

Re: No more updates @tbblue @gitlab

For backpower, there is really nothing that can be done and any difference in behaviour is going to be random. The only thing to do to solve it is to put a buffer between the Next and TV. If it comes up like in your screenshot, you know nothing is going to work and you'll need to power down complete...

Re: PS/2 key mappings

After an initial panic thinking that the board would not recognise my 2 PS/2 keyboards, a little extra research found that there is a separate SD card distro for board-only machines. Progress :) It's a very trivial change in the config.ini file "ps2=0" or "ps2=1" so not really a separate distro. Th...

Re: Let's talk about money: What does "Price includes all taxes." mean?

The Next will not be shipped directly from China because (1) the completed article will not be produced in China, (2) people could expect long shipping times from China depending on destination and (3) there is no logistics set up from China (shipping was calculated from the UK). The proposal is tha...

Re: No more updates @tbblue @gitlab

The most important thing is you get a properly updated core and the version of nextzxos on sd card is consistent with that core. If you have backpower issues you *always* have to unplug power, unplug the hdmi and wait a 10 seconds for capacitors to discharge before powering up in the reverse order f...

Re: New version of the Professional Adventure Writer?

I'm not too familiar with it unfortunately. I think this modern incarnation has moved to the PC with a more programmer like interface but the authors are still saying it's easy to pick up if you know PAW already. Maybe I can get Tim to stop by if he knows about it. Tim created all these tools back i...

Re: Latest Distro ... Is it the latest Distro ? Core 3.01.05?

Let me know if the hdmi sound works again. If it was working before 3.01.05 and stopped working in 3.01.05 then it should be working in 3.01.06 and later. We tried to experiment with increasing the audio volume output but some hdmi tvs didn't correctly decode signed audio at max volume.
