Re: Mouse/KoalaPad...

Thanks for this, I did however manage to find a mouse locally :)

Diagnostics for VDC and associated HiRes RAM

Hi, I have a C128 with intermittent problems. It always works in C64 mode but C128 doesn't boot a lot of the time. I get a correct border and screen colour but random lines of characters in it. When it boots it seems to work fine, I can load and run my old basic programs. The C128 diagnostic cart ra...

Re: C128 VGA adapter to be released at CommVEx?

No, but I bet somebody there would have the 23-pin to Whatever their monitor is cable for connecting an Amiga handy. I am just talking about making my box look like an Amiga output so whatever cables are handy there should plug in to a monitor. Anyway, The thing works, it looks better in person than...

Re: C128 VGA adapter to be released at CommVEx?

I might make up an Amiga style video out on it. I expect there will be Amigas around connected to monitors so I won't need to worry what Cable to make :) just put a 23pin Dtype out.

Re: C128 VGA adapter to be released at CommVEx?

Well, here is hoping somebody has a monitor with RGB inputs there! What's the most likely connector I would have to put on it to connect to a machine there?

Re: C128 VGA adapter to be released at CommVEx?

I have made the board up to simply have a pin header for connecting the input/outputs. Whatever connector is needed can then be easily attached, this is exactly why :)

The cheap arcade CGA to VGA adapter boards on eBay should work with this but I have heard a problem with them on PAL machines.

Re: C128 VGA adapter to be released at CommVEx?

Ok, so here is a photo of the adapter on my Samsung Smart HDTV directly via SCART (rgb in, no other adapters). http://postimg.org/image/xf2u202lv/ I get rock solid sync, very stable clear colours, no bleeding or blurring. I will try to get as many assembled as I can to bring along. I am also looking...
