Re: Resurrecting an MTX500.

ROM Pin 1 is +5VDC - perhaps you grounded it by mistake and blew something in the power circuit?

If you're lucky, it might just be a cap or something, if you're very unlucky, you might have melted a track, either way, the machine can probably be saved, don't bin it just yet

Do you know where I might be able to get a set (A, B and C) for a 4000-05 motherboard?

Re: Resurrecting an MTX500.

You can just remove the contacts from position 5 and make a key of your own.
Putting in a small piece of PCB works well

If you use a 30x2 connector and plug onto the external edge connector, you don’t actually need a key

Re: Hello + sad news + opportunity

Re: [MAME] Emulating the MTX

Hi,

That’s good work!

I thought that I would have dumped the SDX 80 column card ROMs, but it appears not. I will do it next week.

You could just copy files to and from the RAM disk to test it?

I don’t know of any Memotech MTX (or CP/M) software that actually pages >64k

Hi Viv, Welcome me to the Forum. I see that Martin has already pointed you to modern alternatives for loading programs into your MTX. If you just wanted to quickly load a few games, you could also consider MAGROM .... http://www.primrosebank.net/computers/mtx/projects/magrom/magrom.htm Regards Dave

Hi Martin,

I suspect that Inter7 is a copy of InterCept 7 which we already have in .mtx format

Re: Unconverted mp3s

Paul has uploaded the files to my Google Drive. I will email a link to interested parties. (Bill, I have sent you the link already) I don’t have time at the moment to set up proper protection, so we’ll rely on trust for now. Please do not overwrite the original files, if you modify them, please save...
