Re: SOS - Reviving a Power 3000 tape

... Something's wrong regard the "POWER 3000" BIOS ROM ! ... By pure luck I ran into a guy that happens to have a working Power 3000 computer. I'm going to try the game out on his computer to see if it works. And I'm still gonna give it a go on my lambda 8300 as well just for the fun of it. /Anders

Re: SOS - Reviving a Power 3000 tape

Thank you for the links - unfortunately no luck with those either. I'll go search for my Lambda 8300 in the attic and see how it behaves on a real machine.

Re: SOS - Reviving a Power 3000 tape

Great to se some Danish software. :-) Yes - that's basically what I'm after. Question: I have a working Lambda 8300 computer - what would it take to dump the rom (If at all possible)? I'll fire it up and see if it can load the SOS game from tape. It could be pretty cool to have an emulator that cou...

Re: SOS - Reviving a Power 3000 tape

OK - Managed to record the file on my MacBook Pro using a dodgy setup: https://www.dropbox.com/s/r0gx6uftkjxomgk/SOSSide2Raw2.wav?dl=0 It produces a file that can be read into EightyOne - it displays a nice start screen, but crashes when I press the O or P key. According to the instructions the game...

Best Lambda 8300 emulator

I was wondering which emulator is considered to be the best for the emulation of a Lambda 8300 computer. I'm familiar with EightyOne for windows.

Re: SOS - Reviving a Power 3000 tape

Hi XavSnap, Thanks a lot for your research. It is highly appreciated. I have been using an older Lenovo T60p windows computer with Audacity. This setup has been pretty good previously and later in the day (of the SOS recordings) I managed to digitise a few other games successfully. But the theory of...

Re: SOS - Reviving a Power 3000 tape

Hi Jesper and XavSnap, Thanks a lot for your assistance so far. I wonder if it would be possible to patch a version of the tape - using the best bits from each recording? I guess this is the idea with the "Java ZX81 Tape Converter" tool - but I never quite got the idea. Noob question: How do you see...

SOS - Reviving a Power 3000 tape

Hello, I have found quite a few old tapes. Some of them are Power 3000 tapes. Question - will the EightyOne emulator be capable of running the Power 3000 games? Running the Lambda 8300 hardware. Or do you need a different emulator? I have a recording of one of the games here. The game is called SOS ...

Re: Can you help convert this Lambda 8300 recording?

I'm heading off to bed - but you should have a new recording within a few days. There must be someone else in that bed with you keeping you busy Anders! :D Aheeemmm - I'd rather not answer that... Anyway - I'm back :D I have done a new recording of the entire tape it can be found here: https://www....

Re: Can you help convert this Lambda 8300 recording?

Hi Ian- thanks a lot for taking a look. I'm a complete novice with respect to Lambda 8300 (and ZX81 for that matter) I'll do a re-recording, as I can not recall if I cut off some sound at the beginning of the recording. The reason I think it is lambda 8300 related is that the casette it self is from...
