Re: Muldjord aka "El Senator"

No, no RS232 in my MTX512. I looked into Memu yesterday but haven't tried it yet. I'm a big RetroPie fan so I was thinking that maybe Memu could work on Arm on a RPi3, but I don't really have time to look into that. Would be neat though, to have it on there. And thank you! If I am in need of spare p...

Re: Sound and LOAD issues

I would assume that the sound output coming from the speakers when loading a game is coming from the sound chip. But I haven't much knowledge about it, so it's just an assumption. What is the CTC? I'm gonna do some more troubleshooting when I get the IC's I ordered. I actually have no reason to beli...

Re: Muldjord aka "El Senator"

Good to hear from you Claus! Yes, it's been a while. :) I had some off years where I pretty much lost my interest in the retro space. But about 2 years ago I was given an old A500 for free that needed to be shined up a bit. So one weekend I took it apart and cleaned everything up and got it back in ...

Re: Sound and LOAD issues

Thank you for the clarifications. I remember having a TV back in the 80's that drifted off-channel. It was a pain to work with. I'll be sure to get my hands on a mono-jack. I feel pretty sure that the data-loading will work then.

Re: Sound and LOAD issues

I've just ordered some SN74HCT374N and sockets. Looking forward to switching out that IC and see if it fixes the sound issue. Thank you for the MIC/EAR description Dave. It really is an odd choice of labeling, as both EAR and MIC are input channel names in my logic. I do seem to recall my old datase...

Re: Sound and LOAD issues

When you say that "you get nothing" when playing an audio tape, do you just mean that you can't hear it loading, or are you certain that no data is actually being loaded? When I type in LOAD "" and press enter, I don't get any sound, and nothing is found or loaded. So I jumped to the semi-conclusio...

Muldjord aka "El Senator"

Hi everyone, A small introduction is in place. I collaborated a bit with Claus many years back in exchanging game files under my old nick "El Senator". The MTX512 was my first computer, which I got when I was only 4 or 5 years old. I learned Basic on it by typing in the examples of "The big black bo...

Sound and LOAD issues

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've had my trusty Memotech MTX512 fired up. I've recently been getting back into retro machines with the A500, A600 and a C64. But the star of the show is, of course, still my MTX512. Now here's the sad part. When I wanted to play some games on it today, it turn...
