PenUltimate+ VIC-20 Cartridge con software Diagnostico

PenUltimate+ VIC-20 Cartridge with diagnostic DeadTest+ support

La nuova versione della PenUltimate+ cartridge anche se apparentemente sembra identica alla versione precedente non lo e’ perche’ sono state fatte delle modifiche e un aggiornamento software per il supporto del software Diagnostico DeadTest+.

Tutte le cartridge prodotte da Dicembre 2018 includono il supporto del software diagnostico DeadTest+

Il software Diagnostico DeadTest+ puo’ essere eseguito tramite menu oppure mantenendo premuto il tasto di reset per 10 secondi all’accensione.

Rispetto alla prima versione la Penultimate+ include ancora più ROM (70+) e una nuovissima interfaccia utente.

Sono stati inclusi alcuni giochi di tfw8b (The Future Was 8Bit) tra cui Cheese & Onion, RodMan, Pentagorat (Easier edition) e molti altri.

Naturalmente la PenUltimate+ cartridge resta la miglior Ram Pack per il VIC-20, la RAM di espansione da 3-35k può essere selezionata direttamente dal menu.

Ringrazio Dave Curran di Tynemouth Software e tfw8b (The Future Was 8Bit)

Amiga 500 Plus Baciato dalla fortuna + Floppy Drive Riparato

Commodore Amiga 500 Plus kissed by luck

Il mio nome è “ittero” e il mio cognome è “fortunato”.  :-)

Perche “fortunato” ? perche’ la batteria utilizzata in questo Amiga non era della VARTA ma GP, queste batterie resistono leggermente di piu’ all’invecchiamento e rilasciano meno acido.

L’unico difetto che aveva questo Amiga 500 Plus era il Floppy Drive che non leggeva nessun Floppy Disk, il motore girava piu’ lento del normale, e’ stato sufficiente sostituire un condensatore elettrolitico da 4.7uF per farlo funzionare nuovamente.

Ringrazio il mio amico Igor per la donazione.
