Quote from: Executioner on 00:21, 10 May 16What is the 32k RTC? Does it have 32K of static memory attached?
Quote from: Grim on 04:05, 10 May 16+1Also: What's up with this double CPC reset? (As seen in the YT video) Is it temporary or does the final board will do that as-well?Could it be possible to configure the integrated ROM-board to use a different mapping range (eg. slots 32-47, 48-63 or whatever, instead of 0-15) in order to play nice with existing ROM-Boards? (esp. the X-MEM)
Quote from: Prodatron on 17:04, 10 May 16@Duke: Just two questions regarding driver development on CPC side:- is it possible to low level access the SD card (reading and writing sectors directlly)?- is it possible to access the ESP8266 in a way, that the CPC can send and receive TCP and UDP packages (multiple sockets/connections)? Are there any buffers for incoming and outgoing data on hardware side?CU,Prodatron
Quote from: Grim on 20:28, 10 May 16Two quick remarks. In your sendloop code, you can safely remove the ld a,d:cp #0 and you might want to check the outi instruction too. Also, the I/O address #FFxx is already used by the CPC-Booster but this shouldn't be much of a problem imo, since your WiFi card will most likely supersede it anyway If several revisions of the M4 firmware are made, is there any way the CPC can detect which version is currently available? (eg. to avoid invoking unavailable commands). Oh, and Hurray! for open-sourcing everything too! (yes, you will open-source everything [calm voice and Jedi hand trick]).
Quote from: Duke on 09:18, 11 May 16@mr_lou I have ordered some right angle pcb edge connectors. I'll have to see them before I am sure if they can be used for the cpc.The idea was to make a mini pcb (ie. expansion port length x 2 cm) with edge connector for the cpc expansion port in one side and a idc connector in the other side, this could then be either right angle to lay flat with the table or non angled, so it will standup like ie. ddi interface.This way users can have their own choice, use motherX4 or cable or use the edge connector to idc connector pcb if they have non centronics cpc.Lets see how it goes.About the HxC, this device cannot replace it, as it cannot act as FDC controller, so all games that use custom disc loading (most copy protected discs) talking directly to the FDC will not work. A proper cracked version is needed if it can be found and I have tested quite a few cracks that still have direct FDC loading code.

Quote from: Duke on 12:24, 11 May 16You are not too late, but be prepared it may be a long process, I don't know how long it will take to assemble all these boards... I am the pick and place machine and manually soldering connectors, correcting shorts on the chips etc. And parts are still many weeks away.Anyway when I am a little further with things I'll update on the process.
