ARCADE / Sega Touring Car Championship graphics glitch
« Last post by simon_m74 on September 05, 2018, 10:44:49 PM »
Hi, at Rcm we have a Sega Touring Car Championship sit-down cab, that has vertical lines on the 2d. 3d is fine though.
Any ideas?

That is awesome - NEED to order at least one.

Haha yeah it is pretty good being able to email from 30 year old computers!

Believe it or not Siggi, on the German ZX forum, runs a web server on a ZX81!!  :o

That's cool, hopefully there may be more Z80 based internet uses now with the device I posted too. I logged on the Amstrad BBS last night on my Amstrad NC200 using wifi with the Retro Wifi SI. I've got an SRAM on order to try it also via CP/M with hopefully a better terminal than the built in one (though it did do the job!)...

Andy - thanks for this. I know how fortunate I am to have been gifted a Nascom!

I'm going to have a read of your blog and check out the Yahoo list.

Thanks again, I'll let you know how I get on!

Cheers,

Ric.

Hello Ric,

You were very lucky to get hold of one of those.

I had been after one for years before finding one (that I could afford).

Sadly mine isn't running yet but you can read about my attempts to get it going here...

There is also a fairly active mailing list here... https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/nascom/info



Cheers,

Hi i thought it may be of interest to vintage and retro computer users that it is now easier than ever to get your old computer online! You can hook them up easily to the internet over Wifi.

This small rs232 serial interface unit plugs in the back of classic home computer systems and devices with a serial port (such as Amiga, Amstrad, Acorn, BBC, Apple, Atari, Commodore, IBM XT compatible PCs, MSX, Sinclair Spectrum):

I've attached a couple of photos of it being used with an Amiga 1200.

The Retro Wifi SI plugs in to most old and retro computers with a serial port and then you're able to connect to BBS systems, chat online, transfer files or send emails. It isn't anything new as there have been other devices like this in the past, but it is all packaged up nicely and ready to use with instructions - so just a nice neat product. :) I hope you don't mind me posting it, but it could be useful for most users here if they don't already have something similar...

GENERAL RETRO CHIT CHAT / Antstream - Streaming Retro Gaming
« Last post by tubblog on July 28, 2018, 06:40:41 PM »
I saw this interesting new service via Retro Gamer magazine.

"Antstream is the World’s first retro game streaming subscription service, available soon on the Android and Windows platforms. 

We have a huge library of licensed and carefully curated classic games available to play on demand.  It has never been easier to play -  No downloads, no fiddly emulators, just instant streaming.

Antstream also adds a unique twist with exclusive challenges, allowing you to compete against your friends and the global Antstream user-base."

It's in the pre-registration stage right now, so it'll be interesting to see how it develops!

Ric.
