Re: Can't create a disk image

You're in luck! There is a DOS version called OmniDisk that has a bootable FreeDOS version: http://www.shlock.co.uk/Utils/OmniDisk/OmniDisk.htm But yeah doesn't work with USB drives because they don't provide the kind of low level access required to read non-PC floppy disks. There is a roject called...

Re: Archimedes Chess

I had a crawl through the forums and got it working! I put GOARM3JIT 0 at the start of the !Run and GOARM3JIT at the end of it as you suggested in the Manic Miner thread, and it works! I'll have to remember that one :lol: Also just learned about the "ADFRemapVideoMemory <mode> <memory>" command, usi...

Re: Can't create a disk image

Until Jon comes along with a solution, I just wanted to let you know that if you have a PC with a floppy drive handy, you can also use OmniFlop . I personally use it on my Windows XP gaming machine and it works perfectly, but it also works on the latest Windows 10 as well. You just have to use Devic...

Archimedes Chess

After watching the recent Netflix show "The Queen's Gambit", I was reminded of an old Chess program for RISC OS that I had on floppy disk and used the play. I decided to image the floppy to an ADF and try it out on the Raspberry Pi, but it didn't run. Just wondering if there is any way to get this w...

Re: Screen image doubling / quadrupling issue

Not sure 5.24 is particularly up to date. Can you try a more recent SD image, such as RISC OS Direct? Or update your system with a nightly ROM. Looks like this https://forums.jaspp.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=241&p=1858#p1858 Oh my goodness, that's all it was! Downloaded RISC OS Pi RC16 and it...

Re: Screen image doubling / quadrupling issue

Also, not sure if this is related, but I also found that after !ADFFS is loaded, if I press F12, go to BASIC and enter "MODE 13", the whole screen freezes and I have to disconnect and reconnect the power to the Pi. Prior to !ADFFS loading it works OK and I can switch to all the old screen modes like...

Re: Lemmings (1991) (Krisalis Software)

Hi, it's me again! (5 years later... lol) Trying to have another go at getting this working, so my son can eventually try out some of the games that I grew up with :D I'm still having the same problems I did before with this game with the image repeating/doubling, just like the other poster sniffer ...

Re: Game Request: Diggers

Amazing, thank you! Have you been able to get permission to distribute an ADF of this game? I still haven't been able to find the full version anywhere to download - the DOS version is already preserved on Web Archive so I can't see this being a stretch. I also saw in an article that you were at the...

Re: Lemmings (1991) (Krisalis Software)

Shift didn't work - emailed you the !Boot folder, thanks! It took me a little bit of time to figure out since !ZipEE doesn't work on 32bit, had to use !Infozip instead.
