  1. Thanks for the reply, no the other way round. I have 2 Genuine pokeys in the simple stereo board and none in the Concerto cart. The dimensions of the cart shell mean a pokeyone won't fit in the cart. So.... Will a pokeyone work as a 2nd pokey in the stereo board freeing up a real known good pokey for the Concerto cart? I was asking as the pokeyone web page says they don't work in 8bit computers... But that is presumably as the first and only pokey with no simple stereo configuration.

  2. Yeah I guessed that would be the case. So now I wonder is the pokeyone will work as to replace the 2nd pokey in my simple stereo board in my 130XE so that the 2nd pokey there can go in the Concerto. Sent from my CPH2089 using Tapatalk
  3. Hi all. I currently have a Simple Stereo board in my 130XE with a 2nd pokey fitted. BUT I'd like to explore the possibility of moving the 2nd one out and into my Concerto cart for my 7800. So although the PokeyOne does not work as a replacement for the first pokey in an A8 machine will it work as a replacement for the 2nd pokey in the Simple Stereo board? Any experience anyone has with this configuration will be most helpful. Craig
  4. My Concerto arrived in Ireland this morning. And the build quality is amazing. Now the question... Has anyone tried to fit PokeyOne in to the modern clear cases? the gap around the Pokey socket on the PCB looks very tight and teh PokeyOne is wider than a standard IC so I am not sure if it will fit in. Any experience would be great if anyone has tried.
  5. Yes, I have one, bought it from Keir Fraser directly. The same guy who makes the FlashFloppy gotek firmware. I've not tried it on a8 discs yet, as I don't have a 5.25inch floppy drive..... Or any Atari 8 bit discs! But it works perfectly on CPC, cpm, pcw, Amiga, Sam coupe, spectrum and BBC disc formats so I expect it'll be fine on the Atari too.
  6. U1MB installed in my 130xe (alongside dual pokey stereo and Sophia RGB graphics) I love that machine!
  7. I have a Sophia RGB providing a crystal clear rgb signal for screens with Scart support. By then plugging this into my OSSC I get the best possible and lag free image on any screen that has hdmi but no Scart.
  8. It might help if you could advise which adaptor you are using and perhaps some photos of the screen with the distortions
  9. It works on my PAL130XE with Sophia RGB, Dual Pokey and U1MB. Perhaps it's a PAL/NTSC thing??
  10. Beautiful Scart RGB from a Sophia board in my 130XE Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  11. I got a Sophia RGB board earlier in the year. Its a wonderful piece of kit and highly recommended. [email protected] for availability details. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  12. I thought I made is [email protected] I like the game and would certainly buy it. But since you made it not work on my hardware there would be little point in doing so don't you think? Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  13. Such short sighted development! Don't get me wrong this is [email protected]'s choice and he has every right to code only for stock systems if he so desires. But now it will cost him sales by doing so it seems like a pretty bloody stupid thing to do. I have a history of buying physical releases for retro machines even when they are also released as free downloads as I believe development should be rewarded. But I am damn sure I ain't buying something deliberately coded not to work on my hardware because the coder does not like expanded machines because reasons. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3003 using Tapatalk
  14. Since you deliberately make it incompatible with my hardware, I guess I'll pass.
  15. Aaaggghh the (anti) gravity snakes! Personally speaking, they can f*ck right off!
