Re: USB Joystick on the Raspberry Pi?

OK, found the ZIP containing the build instructions and software for the Ian Haylock parallel port Joystick interface. Contrary to what I remembered, it works on bidi parallel ports as well as on classic parallel ports (A3xx/4xx/A540/A3000). I think I also had it running on my Risc PC. http://legacy...

Re: USB Joystick on the Raspberry Pi?

The LogikJoy and Gamer's Upgrade Joystick interfaces had a capable module that allowed the Joystick to produce configurable keypresses, so that you could control any game that allowed control via keyboard to be controlled via Joystick. IIRC, that piece of software was done by Matthias Seifert (autho...

Re: ADFFS 2.41 on the Pi 2 running RiscOS 5.21 help needed please

Aemulor for nearly all platforms and current RISC OS versions has now been published by Adrian, see http://sendiri.co.uk/aemulor/index.html for more info and download. Pi3 is now also a supported platform. Hopefully - I have not yet tested it myself!

Re: Magnetoids

Frank did a major part of the Windows game "Stealth Combat" - but this was 2002 or so. Haven't heard anything about him. I guess you already made contact with Jan Klose for the Artex software titles? Maybe he knows more.

Re: Magnetoids

Magnetoids was properly released. The really cool update with nicely shaded fills instead of the flat fills for Risc PCs however was not released IIRC. Frank Föhl showed the update in the early 90s on one of our Acorn meetings.

Re: ADFFS 2.41 on the Pi 2 running RiscOS 5.21 help needed please

Not sure how much effort ARMv8 needs - apart from the SWP problem, was there any other problem? It needs to handle alignment exceptions and several deprecated instructions that no longer work on Pi2. For Pi3 it needs SWP and a few more deprecated instructions. I still don't understand what differen...

ARMv7? I guess you mean ARMv8. Aemulor had ARMv7 compatibility since the release of the BeagleBoard version a few years back.

Re: Need some help - RiscPC RiscOS 3.70

RISC OS 3.7 has not yet the new filecore which supports long filenames. You need to work around the issue, e.g. by using raFS or X-Files or TBAFS or LongFiles. Or you just use a network FS supporting long filenames.

It was announced, but in the "News" section of the ROOL site https://www.riscosopen.org/news/article ... 15-out-now and not in the "Announcements" in the Forum.
