It is even more annoying because in order for my finger to “hit” the [X] I have to resize the screen, as it is too close to the edge of the screen and small compared to the size of my finger...

Re: Problems with Ads on Memorum?

Definitely an issue for me. Using Firefox on Linux, it pops up a nearly full page ad. When I click the close button on that, the add takes over the entire original page, and bumps the forum onto a new tab. Very annoying. I can recognise the need to pay for hosting the site,and I can tolerate a reas...

Re: Joystick plug pinout.

It should also be mentioned that on the joystick ports, pin 8 is NOT ground (GND), but is a common for that port ONLY. Autofire joysticks as well as needing +5V on pin 7, also need a real 0V/GND on pin 8. Pin 8 on the joystick port of an MTX is either an input port pin (plug J4) or an output port pi...

If I do find a spare copy, you are welcome to it. I bought a copy when a friend let me borrow his MTX back when I was young in the 1...

Re: Attachments in the Forum

The only other file type that we should consider (if not already done) is any MTX specific file types that would be more convenient not to be zipped up.
