Quote from: Fran123 on 22:06, 10 February 22will be the usifac II placed on the 2-row socket?
Quote from: Fran123 on 22:29, 10 February 22the worst, it's seems a big board for only two chips (I don't know if components are missing)
Quote from: ikonsgr on 22:41, 10 February 22there are too many connections to be routed which must be placed on top & bottom layer of the board!
Quote from: Audronic on 04:28, 11 February 22@ikonsgr Hi JohnA Small concern ?Using a CPC464 and USiFAC II I wish to load a Basic Program from the USB stick and SAVE it to TAPE.I am able to load the Basic Program to Memory.I have tried most things but am unable to save the Basic Program to tapeI am unable to access the tape once I use |USB ?I have used |USB to turn off the USB but it will not allow me to access the Tape recorder.I have used Amsdos and Parados as the rom to try to overcome this concern BUT still cannot save to Tape ??The tape recorder works OK without |USB, Replays/Records ?ThanksKeep Safe.Ray
Quote from: issalig on 23:35, 10 February 22Are you routing it manually or with an auto router?
Quote from: Audronic on 13:32, 11 February 22[quote@Audronic, indeed, on cpc 464, i'm afraid you can't use tape recorder once you enable usb host module. Fortunately CPC 6128 has an |TAPE command (which restores the old 464 tape accesss routines) just give |DIS and then |TAPE commands and you will be able to use tape.Hi JohnOk Thanks I thought I missed some command.Keep Safe.

Quote from: wolfgang on 13:31, 12 February 22I guess its the same the other way around, I would like to load some Amsword texts from tape and save them to USB, won't work either, right?
Quote from: wolfgang on 13:31, 12 February 22When the RAM/ROM board becomes available will it be possible to put the CPC 6128 system in the ROM and make a CPC 6128 from the CPC 464 (functionwise)?
Quote from: ikonsgr on 19:49, 12 February 22Unfortunately neither 6128 firmware nor BASIC 1.1 seem to work on a CPC 464 (i've tried both, but 464 hanged or keep rebooting).
Quote from: Animalgril987 on 01:50, 13 February 22You need both at same time. Firmware needs to be in a Lowerrom position.I have @Dukes M4 on my 464, with 6128 firmware in slot 31 set as lower ROM and BASIC 1.1 in slot 0. It works perfectly, with the 464 thinking it's a 6128.
Quote from: ikonsgr on 19:49, 12 February 22 Actually i think this will work.Boot your CPC 464, load what you want from tape, and then give |USB. After this, you will be able to save your program to the usb flash drive

Quote from: Animalgril987 on 16:11, 13 February 22Hi @wolfgang , you need both at the same time, with the firmware in a slot that can behave as a lower ROM, and BASIC 1.1 in upper ROM slot 0. As I said above, it works perfectly with my 464.
Quote from: wolfgang on 16:26, 13 February 22Sounds very nice but right now I have only the USIFACII expansion, so I have to wait for ikonsgr new RAM/ROM board. Maybe it will work with that.
Quote from: Animalgril987 on 16:46, 13 February 22@ikonsgr , will your new board be able to use one slot as a Lower ROM?
Quote from: ikonsgr on 17:36, 13 February 22 YES!In fact this is one of the reasons that it took me so long for the RAM/ROM board to finish it! I wanted to have BOTH upper and lower rom emulation (in ROM board mode) at the same time working in real time (initial version could emulate upper rom or lower rom, but not both together). So in rom mode you should be able to have:- Up to 32 upper roms in rom slots 0-31- Lower rom at slot 0- Lower rom at slot 0 and up to 31 upper roms to slots 1-31 (ability to relocate an upper rom 0 to different rom slot in SRAM is also provided, in order to have both upper rom 0 and lower rom 0 like with firmware+basic roms)
Quote from: eto on 15:38, 13 February 22have you tried to replace both at once? At least according to Bryce in one recent thread, this should work. If not, here is a thread where Audronic published a Basic 1.1 ROM patched for the 464.https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/hardware-related/amstrad-cpc464-40009-rom-replacement/msg176126/#msg176126
Quote from: wolfgang on 17:41, 13 February 22Does "in ROM board mode" mean that someone must select either ROM board mode or RAM board mode? So in ROM board mode additional RAM will not be available?
