  1. I thought I was a pack rat Quite a bit there. I'd be interested if the shipping wouldn't be so expensive, and if you were parting it out. Afraid that there are only parts & pieces I'd want. Good luck, though
  2. Considering all that it comes with, the BIN $400 price seems extremely cheap to me. If I'd had the money, I would of snatched it immediately.
  3. I'm currently searching for that information as well. Did you ever find anything?
  4. For the audio line, why not do what many adapter/expansion boards of the 80's & 90's did. That is, have a wire with a test lead attached & instructions to connect the lead to pin x of chip y.
  5. I am sooooo jealous
  6. Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for. If it doesn't work, then I would need to go elsewhere (probably) & report it as a bug. I was on that page too, when I was doing my own search for the answer. I just missed it for some reason. It's rather clear and easy to spot too. Need to have my eyes checked I guess.
  7. Don't know if there's been a previous comment on this, 21 pages & I don't have time before I leave to read through every last one sorry. Is there a check mark or switch somewhere so that a subscribed thread doesn't send me an email for every single response (not referring to changing it to once a day or such?) Before, I would get an e-mail on a post, then no more from that thread (even if 20 more posts occur,) until I've visited the thread again. Resetting the subscription. It's not really a major problem, it's just a minor bother is all. Thank you.
  8. Old version MT-32, working & complete (with extra power adapter - lower profile & reduced heat generation.) Quite a few vintage games take advantage of bugs in the old version OS and don't sound correct on later models. Games designed specifically for the MT-32 are available for the Atari ST, Amiga, PC, MSX, NEC PC 98x1, & Sharp X68000 computers. Unit is complete with original power adapter, smaller profile power adapter, & MIDI cable. Asking $175 + shipping & PP fees. SOLD Based on sold listings at the bay (a little below over all average.)
  9. Working Roland CM-32L (MT-32 sound & style with extra voices,) with power adapter, MIDI cable, & original box. Asking $175 + Shipping & PP Fees. NOTE: Cat in upper right of picture 2 is "NOT" included I just couldn't keep her out of the picture
  10. I currently have a MT-32 and CM-32 MIDI units. Originally, I was going to keep & use both for the small percentage of games that prefer one over the other. But have lately decided that it really isn't worth it (to me at least.) This leads to my current conundrum Which to keep? They both have games that sound best on that specific type. But the MT-32 is more likely for the games in question to need severe speed control (games that are moved to emulation, and thus it could be emulated as well. On the other hand, the MT-32 also has the nice display & buttons. If one was the CM-64 instead, I'd keep that one. So, suggestions anyone? Thoughts? Thank you.
  11. I saw the option on a 1581 clone (the Firedrive 2/4K ?? or something like that IIRC,) and on a hard drive unit. So, custom ROM routines, probably. Was just wondering if the same thing could be done with a 1571 or 1541. Guess not Oh well, back to my "original" plan. I keep looking for someone to design & release a sandwich board to fit between a drives board and the VIA chip with jumpers to allow mounting switches (or just using regular jumpers,) to set the drive # via HW without cutting traces or soldering onto the board itself (though installing a socket would probably still be needed in some, if not all, cases.) Seems the design would be extremely simple. Same thing could be done with the ???? chip (don't remember off hand, but I have a text file with instructions around here somewhere,) to disable the internal drive of the 128D(CR). Then all I'd need is some way to reset just the drive portion. From the little I've read, so far, on it, the drive is a little too integrated into the 128D's design to do that easily, though. I'm still reading up on that, so I may discover there is a way after all. Would love to find a switch that does a full throw, but also has an intermittent connection that triggers whenever you flip the switch. Don't think there is such a creature, though. Right now, I'm looking into installing a 5v USB A port to plug my upscaler in to, so that it only powers on when I turn on my 128D. Don't really see a need to have it turned on all the time.
  12. IIRC, that card edge connector on the outside of the cart is to connect a printer. Without that interface, I'm wondering how he fully tested it? Or did he just test it to startup & typing? Of course, it could be some form of standard printer connection I'm not familiar with
  13. After seeing a drive for sale that had switches to set the drive number as high as 15, I started looking into it. But I cannot seem to get the details I need. The HW "jumpers" inside a 1541 or 1571 drive just open or short pins on a VIA chip to ground to set the drive number via HW. The pins (on the 1571 I'm currently looking at,) are 15 & 16 which are PB5 & PB6 (peripheral B port bits 5 & 6 of 0-7 **correction, 7 not 8**.) These allow setting device numbers 8-11 (8 if both shorted to ground, 9 if PB5 is opened, 10 if PB6, & 11 if both.) The drive (a 1581 clone I came across,) allows up to 15, it would seem logical that PB7 would also have an effect, but I'm not really wanting to experiment with real HW without better information. Does anyone know exactly how drives (any/all really, but mainly working with 1571 & 1541 drives right now,) set the power on device number with the PB pins on this VIA 6522 chip? Thank you
  14. Deluxe Emplant card for Amiga with Zorro slots. Key MAC chips for running MAC software on a Zorro capable Amiga with 68020 or better CPU. All 5 RAM slots are populated and properly set for maximum RAM. New battery installed to maintain RAM contents. Has the e586DX expansion added. Do not have reliable floppies with software, but the Emplant software is freely available on the net. Fully supported by Fusion 3.2 (latest version.) Includes the MAC's VIA chips, MAC compatible serial & device ports, SCSI interface, and SIMM slot to read SIMM based MAC ROMs. Can also read chip based ROMs but the RAM chips will need to be temporarily removed to read those. Does not run the ROM from the board, but makes an image, so only need to remove the RAM to read the ROMs once. Asking $125 + shipping & PP fees. SOLD!
