Ha, ha, ha! :)

On the contrary you do have a lot of merit, because you're now the owner of a the best remake ever of the Altair 8800. 8)

Congratulations and enjoy!

Thanks for your replay, elchucko.

I am talking about the Ram Disk/32K expansion board and I am currently using NiMH batteries as recommended by Vince. Is that wrong???

RAM Drive Battery Recharging Question

If power is connected to the Altair 8800Micro but its ON/OFF switch is OFF, are the batteries recharging? :?:

Hallo no0207,

In fact I just received my Ram Disk/Memory Expansion kit today, HEUTE!, and I'm anxious to assemble it and run with 64k memory and CP/M.

Re: Front panel operation

At least now I know it's not a building error on my part; now it would be nice to see if it's a hardware problem or a firmware problem... though I think it might be related to the other Reset and A15 problems I reported here: http://www.brielcomputers.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1146 I wond...

Re: Front panel operation

Hey Cristian, Yes, A15 turns on when running normaly or when stepping in auto mode. Still, it looks dimmer than the other LED's. But then, I also tried what you did, run it slowly until A15 turns on and stop. And you're right, it DOES NOT turn on when you are just using single step with the toggle. ...

Re: Front panel operation

Hi again Cristian, I guess it is difficult to do that in a strictly 'step mode' with the Step switch. You'd have to Step so many, many times, because of the wait loops that slowdown the updating. I ran it in 'AutoStep Mode' and yes, A15 led goes on (a little dimer than all other leds, but it does go...

Re: Front panel operation

Hi Cristian, Ok, I entered your program, using the Octal codes column, and it didn't work at first. I then found that there's a minor error on the very first line (@address 0000). It reads: 00 000 mvi c,FF 0E 013 00 001 110 But should be: 00 000 mvi c,FF 0E 016 00 001 110 It now runs very nicely. Th...

Re: VGA or composite. What do you guys use?

I couldn't find any documentation regarding control of the VGA output's cursor, so I experimented a bit. ... ... My documentation says that you can turn the composite video cursor on off with ESC [ Y, but I found that it changed the foreground text colour instead: ESC [ n Y 0 = black 1 = blue 2 = g...
