Re: Some news

Facebook is pretty crappy about intermittently hiding public groups to try to get you to sign up but yes there is more in-between news on facebook. The wait is still on from the case & kbd manufacturers. The tooling is being made and a test manufacturer of a small batch to verify the manufacturing l...

Re: Cores not listed in the FAQ you would like to see on Next

But the AGA Amigas had a minimum of 2Mb RAM. Since a lot of the memory of the NEXT seems to be reserved for "stuff", will it be possible to get 2Mb RAM usable for this? Or is the RAM reserved for "stuff" only NEXT related and not necessarily the same for other cores? Any core would assign sram use ...

Re: Is it possible to create a "Next" in a ZX-UNO like board?

The fpga on the uno is too small for a next core. However the zx dos is using the same size fpga. You will lose some things like pi, exp bus, etc, and I think the sram on the dos is only 512k which is really too small (it should be at least 1MB like the minimum zx next spec). So maybe it's still not...

Re: Musical potential of the NEXT.

This anger you feel and this need to belittle and attack is not normal. It points perhaps to mental illness. It's something that will damage your entire life and those around you if you don't do something about it. I wish you well.

And it seems that the first implementation of the "accelerator card" interface will be done in the next core update.
In that case, I hope that the "Raspberry Pi Zero" digital audio pin will be connected to the ZXSpectrumNext board without forgetting.
The two stereo pwm pins will be connected.

Re: How much longer?

It's amazing that it took them 1.5 years to do this, although any qualified engineer would have determined at a glance that it was fundamentally impossible to get a reliably working keyboard using the path they chose. You lack imagination Black Cat. 1.5 years? Where does that figure come from?? Thi...

Re: Musical potential of the NEXT.

Just a point of fact for Black Cat. The 128/+2, +2a/+3, etc are not clones. They are the original Sinclair machines. The Russian models are imperfect clones and any bus that is not compatible with the Sinclair range is a non-starter for Sinclair machines.

Re: How much longer?

...but how much longer do we have to wait? It takes three to four weeks to make any sort of change and test. Once everything is settled (this includes making a few prototype machines for testing), a slot has to be scheduled for assembly. I don't think the lead time is too long on that but that alwa...
