Another MTX oldie

Post by Martin A » 16 Nov 2013 14:53

Hello!

I brought my first Memotech at the end of 1983. Which ended up as a full twin disc FDX. I wrote the "Bomber" game that appears on Dave and Andy's sites (and maybe others)

At one time there were 4 of us in the family with MTX's so between us we had a fairly comprehensive collection of software.

I moved away from the MTX in the early 90's to the Acorn Archimedes and successors, but picked the MTX up again about 10 years ago when I inherited a working MTX500 from my Grandfather.

I cant remember what happened to my MTX512, the FDX died a death in the mid 90's, but not before I moved some of the game to the Acorn, for which I wrote an emulator, the site that hosted it is long gone (and so are most of Acorn users!).

At present I have 2 MTX500's, the one that my Uncle had came with a box load of games.

One of the MTX's has a re-memorizor, the other gets tinkered with.

At present it's running over clocked at 4.9mhz, but has to rely on external ROM & RAM courtesy of a ram/rom upgrade that failed.

Yup that's it, pretty much the "latest" version too. I only ever had one bug report when I had it online, and that was the update with the fix.

Scary really, the date stamp on the source code is over 14 years old!
