Re: Composite AV output planned!

Hi, i just tried the MSX RGB circuit again (on my TI-99/4A) and got it working this time! The picture is not so great (slightly wrong colors and interferences). But this may be a problem of my "flying" unshielded wires, will try again with better shielding soon... I took the Y, R-Y, B-Y directly fro...

Re: Composite AV output planned!

Hi TBCTBC,

I once tried the RGBMSX circuit, but i sadly failed getting it to work (i tried it with a TI-99/4a).
But maybe it was only some bad soldering of mine...
Because of the bad quality od the original PCB scan, I have attached my redrawn and ready to etch RGMSX PCB...

Greetings TOM:-)

Re: Text/Graphic adventures

Hi,

I think "The Hobbit" on the ZX Spectrum draws most (if not all) of its graphics in vectors and fills areas with color...
So only a few bytes for the vector-coordinates would be needed... but one would need to code a linedrawing and a fill routine...

Re: Creativision centronics printer cable pinout

Hi,

Sorry, i know i should have mentioned it: the plug is shown in the right way (up in the picture is up on the CV too...). There is a small "keypeg" (cut) on the CV-side but i had no easy way of adding a key to the plug... see pic of interfaceboard.

Creativision centronics printer cable pinout

Hi, I got the creativision "parallel I/O interface module" but without a matching printer cable, so i had to figure out the pinout=> Here is the pinout for a printer cable to use with the "parallel I/O interface module" and a centronics printer. creativision_centronics_cable_04_b.jpg Greetings TOM:-)

Hi Sotigris, Welcome to the forum! Without a gamecartridge the Creativision will produce no picture on the TV! (only Black). I do own 2 Sonic Invader Cartridges, if you want one contact me... I also do repairs on the Creativision, so if yours does not work i can be of assistence... Greetings TOM:-)
