  1. Okay, I admit I've had my skunkboard for a few months now and have been procrastinating on setting it up. Finally today I plugged it into my Dell running windows 7 and fired it up along side the setup PDF. After much finagling, I FINALLY got windows to install the drivers and all seemed to be going well. I got the green screen, was able to load the little tech demo's, etc, etc. Here are my issues: 1. JCP won't load. I double click on the .exe file and a little black window opens for a split second and then disappears again. Anyone have this issue and any ideas for a solution? 2. How do you actually load games on this thing? When I turn on the jag a little icon pops up giving you the ability to disconnect the hardware safely, but there is no file that pops up among your libraries like a USB storage device would, to click and drag roms to. Do I have to load files via commands on JCP? That seems like a real pain in the ass... Overall my impression is that this thing really is for programmers, as it seems to be several steps higher in difficulty to use than your average USB cart on the market. It's also pretty annoying that you can't reset via the controller or exit the tech demos once you started running them. What am I missing or doing wrong?
  2. So a friend of mine sent me a TRS-80 Model III that her dad owned, along with a handful of software. It's a 48k model with two disk drives, so it was the high-end Model III that Radio Shack sold. It arrived a few days ago, and I've been checking it out to make sure everything works, and for the most part, it appears to be in pretty good condition. It's seen little use over the years, and has spent a large amount of its time in storage. Unfortunately, it does seem to have developed some issues over the years, and I wanted to check with the community to get some advice on what I need to do to repair these things, and if I need parts, where I can get those. Here are the issues I've found thus far: The brightness and contrast pots are both seized up. My guess is due to oxidation over the years, possibly from being in storage and not really being used a lot. Neither of the two disk drives seem to be getting any power. The computer will turn on and boots up with the "CASS?" message in the upper-left corner. The disk drives do not spin when switched on. I'm suspecting the power board that controls the disk drives, and my guess is one or more capacitors have failed. I did a quick glance at the board last night and didn't see any that looked like they had been physically burned or anything like that, but I can supply photos later tonight if that would be of help. One of the disk drives has a broken latch. The latch can still operate and will still hold the disk down, but one of the plastic bits has broken off, and sometimes when you set the latch, the drive mechanism inside pops loose and goes back up. It's a minor issue, and shouldn't affect anything so long as I slowly set the latch and make sure it's secured down. This is the least of the issues I've found, and one I can easily fix later. The most pressing of the issues, of course, is the power board, because the brightness and contrast are already set at a comfortable level. It's just that at some point I'd like to fix that as well so I can make adjustments as needed later.
  3. I've noticed eBay sellers have become irritated by questions. If I ask a couple of questions about an Item, most of the time, they respond to the first one, and gloss over the others. It's like they are saying, Damn!, now I have to actually find the item, and give details. I always ask where they got the item from, and this is the one, that I can sense fumes, coming from the screen. Anyone else notice this. Any ideas?
  4. Hi, I'm new here. I am interested in creating a simple 2 player fighting game similar to Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat. I was wondering before I started coding, how feasible this would be due to the VCS's hardware limitations. I have been reading Andrew Davies tutorial series on the forum as well as have some knowledge of 6502 and M68000 assembly.
