Re: Kickstarter update #25

As nobody want's to discuss:
WHO BETS that the Next will be available on my desk before april the 1st...

(Still I don't think that the ZX Spectrum Next will be available "just in time"...)

P.S.: I can cope with any kind of delay. - BUT don't communicating it is "nicht die feine englische Art"... :(

Re: RTC Issue

Hi Tim, some news about the RTC Issue: Some days ago there was a retro meeting up here where at least half a dozen ZX Next boards where on. (What I ask myself: Has this been the highest concentration of "Just The Board's" out in the wild ?! :D ) At least three boards have had issues with the RTC. We...

Since V0.8B: No startup after power on

Hi, Does anyone have a similar problem like me? Since I've updated to V0.8/V0.8B my board doesn't start up when I power it on. I need to press reset, before the system starts up. When started once it runs without any problems. Pressing F1 or F4 resets without any problems. As I thought it could be a...

Re: What's NEXT?

Thanks for the info@mitja_i, BUT as he offers a case for the Next board I think he will have about 100 - 400 customers (max.) if everybody would have ordered a case for "Just The Board"... - If so a channel could have been established to inform customers (like me) about the status of the case. One o...

Re: What's NEXT?

Yes. I'm fine with this. But stopping communication to the customers isn't the best you could do... I hope that all the stuff will become reality. Especially the 48k case for the Next board is what I'd like to get. Having a "Next" in a 48k to me is much more desirable than having " the real thing "....

Re: What's NEXT?

Ah... - OK.

I didn't receive any info like this.

What's NEXT?

Hi there, I'm a bit depressed as it seems as if the ZX Spectrum Next even this time will be late again... :( As I'm a lucky guy I've baked "Just The Board" and I'm even now able to fiddle around with the stuff that will be provided. Even though I'm a bit frustrated as all the stuff that's extention ...

Re: And 0.8b finally arrives...

Hi Timbucus,

no problem. Of course I've got a backup.

I'll reset to the former version until this one "may" work... :D

P.S.: After "re-flashing" the core at least the browser now works.
=> As usual: I hope that all the issues will be fixed soon... ;->

Re: And 0.8b finally arrives...

Sorry for that: The new version is crap. Nothing works anymore. I can't even open the browser any more... I think you will fix it. Even "LOAD """ when using Manic Miner (.tapein ) ends up with a "F Invalid file name, 0:1" NICE ... :( P.S.: Trying to startup the browser says: "Remove/insert SD and pr...
