Re: Homemade German Interface, for what?

The description has Z80PIOB1 so I'd say its an I/O interface.

Z80 PIO and CPU are the same size.

Re: Why was the UK so slow to adopt the Disk Drive

Why dont you get one of the SD interfaces? These do the same thing and you dont need to have dozens of floppies taking up space.

Re: Thoughts on Mond

Definitely make it interactive, not just pressing ENTER. Use CLS and/or PRINT AT to display descriptive text at a common place (top of screen?) Stopping with 5/14 (or any error) message doesn't give a good impression. Cant comment on the German, but you may have made some errors when using Google tr...

Re: Thoughts on Mond

That loads OK, but its not really an adventure or a game. The only user interaction is to press the enter key and get more text to display.

Its usually at the kill dragon bit (although it never says dragon, just enemies nearby - then what with you bare hands?).

Thanks McKlaud

47pF it is then...

I'll try the alternative inverter if there are problems. Got a bit to wait for 4.43Mhz crystals arriving.
