Re: Possible problem with cloned SGC and Minerva 1.98

That is interesting...

I shall try my cloned SGC in an Iss5 as another test - I had been wondering whether the ZX8302 sitting one side of the DRAM bus or the other might also be contributing to the issue (timing accessing the PC would be slightly different, I believe.)

Re: Mini US 2018 QLer meetings

Sunnyvale, eh? Not so far from our own US offices in Moffett Towers :-)

I'm due another visit there soon - I'll make a point of seeing who's around on my next trip...

Re: Issue 8 and WiFi

Re: Anyone have the MMSE_exts toolkit for MMSE?

Great idea - Ive seen some alternative low-level routines available on Dilwyn's site that I could use - MMSE is clearly coded and should be pretty straightforward to patch...

Anyways, that'll be my next project, after I finally complete the QLAN to USB Adapter project :-)

Re: Anyone have the MMSE_exts toolkit for MMSE?

No worries, Derek - was easy enough to spot and fix by hand! MMSE turns out to be quite the powerful tool - and having the source SB, I've got ideas to build on it. That said, the time it took to scan a couple of my borderline MDV carts - 30mins each, constant running - practically killed the cartri...
