@Dandare

A small question :- Has anybody made a label ( Or template ) that I can put on the Box
That I could print out.

Any Label makers out there ? ?

Little offtopic: All the cables etc. are in Aliexpress. They don't use PayPal. What would you suggest to use to pay products?

The Ardurino and cables arrived and I did try to update!

Now... the video shows well how to connect the cables. But the software...

Well, I started "CH341SER.EXE" and clicked at install

Then I started the "dandanator-cpc-2.0.jar" and started it.

Then I did as shown in the video!


AND IT WORKS!!!!!  :) :) :) :) :) :) :)


There was no need to do an extra install or an extra download! That's amazing!!!

CPC Dandanator Romset Creator 2.1 is available at the downloads section of  www.dandare.es
It corrects some bugs we introduced in 2.0 (ooops  :picard: ) and enhances CDT load with some tweaks here and there.

I think we found a new candidate (the other is surely "M4" board...  :P ) for Amstrad CPC oscar awards, in the category of:

"UNBELIEVABLE HARDWARE FOR CPC"    :o

And as someone else commented in the past, about M4 board:

"Indeed, Amstrad CPC seems a nice peripheral for Dandanator"...  :D

Respect!

Hi guys, I noticed this thread now and was interested in buying a Dandanator, but is it still available? What are the purchase methods? Who should I contact? How much?  :P

Unfortunately, my M4 has stopped working after a year of intensive use and I need to restore my CPC gaming station (abstinence crisis) as soon as possible!  ::)

Do we already have some kind of page which collects the "romsets" / ROM-packs for the Dandanator?
If not it could be a great idea to create such a page for the CPC-Wiki.

Not that I know of.


I'm not too familiar with the distribution rights of the CPC games, but I guess most of them are now either not restricted or directly allowed for distribution, aren't they?

Yes, I would think so. If someone of use will make a kind of "personal favorites game pack" or what ever it would be nice to have them somewhere. Similar to the C4CPC cartridge conversions.

Version 2.2 of Dandanator CPC is released at www.dandare.es.


You can now load games directly from the PC without burning them to the cartridge.
Also, first generation CPC 464s transmission issues should be fixed in this version. Please provide your feedback.


There are now over 400 CPC Dandanators delivered. Thank you all. Remember this is a Public Domain project and you can use whatever you want from it with no restriction whatsoever.

At spanish forums this hardware did sell very well and the initial batch had to be expanded. Numbers make sense also if the "Repoker de ases" packs are counted. I bought 2 reprogramable units and a "repoker" btw

Since it's an "open source" (or whatever you call it...) project it may be difficult to count. M4 quantities should be more valid...

Well, I already got this nice hardware. But where can I get the "Repoker de ases"? Is there a download? Can it be bought? (Asking since I don't need the hardware twice).

I'm sorry, looks like it's sold out...


https://www.4mhz.es/producto/amstrad-repoker-ases/


It's just a regular Dandanator but with the usb header and the buttons removed, so it's for easy storage and to use the dandanator as "ROM replacing RAM" to make the 128kb games work at 64kb machines.


At the software side, it has a custom selector and doesn't look is SNA based... Sorry but there is not download until someone at 4Mhz makes a decision or someone crack opens it's "Repoker pack" and reads the eeprom...
