8 Bit From: D8C (BRENT KITSON) Subject: NEW MEMBER HELLO,Thanks for taking the time to read this. Can you help?I have a MorleyTeletext unit. Unfortunately I need a wiring diagram but cannot get one from Morley themselves. If somebody owns oneor can advise on the wiring for the circuit board I would be most greatful. The circuit board can be removed (one bolt/two self tappers/sticky pad. under aerial input box, just cut through, the circuit board can be eased out). Four of my sixribbon band wires have come away from their soldered mounts (Area r5 on the board).The unit is to be used with a BBC Master. If you can help contact Brent Kitson

please feel free to contact me. From: L1M (Janny Looyenga) Subject: Where is the difference? * * * * * the beginning ... * there * *
In the beginning there was *THE* BBC book for computers play, arranged by Tim Hartnell, Mike James and S.M.Gee, from which I typed in several games. Eilas I could never ever play and finish the first one - THE CRYPT OF GABON, written by Ian Watt -, because there isn't any difference between o and 0 (zero). ... the trouble starts at line 690, which says: M=0:N=0:O=0 and from here I can't see what it should be! Someone out there??? PLEASE, light your fire .... To: 999 + D4J (Oliver Debus) From: L1M (Janny Looyenga) Subject: Master Compact. When I got my Master Compact, I had no idea, no idea about the machine at all. When reading in old Acorn Users I discovered some articles from november 1986 till april 1987, which cleared a lot. It seemed that the Compact did not have a DFS fitted, just working on ADFS, but on later welcome discs a DFS was added. People like me without such added DFS have to try other ones. You need a DFS especially working on the Master and when it does you can really initialise it with CTRL + D + BREAK! And by the way: software only working on the Compact does work on the Master either when you have the Sprite Rom loaded, which can be found on the Master Compact Welcome disc. Does anyone have a Compact Welcome Disc with DFS rom added onto it? From: D6E (Richard Harker) Subject: CD-rom for the Beeb As you may know, it is possible to connect a standard tape player via its left and right audio outputs to the beeb. So the same principle could be used on a standard audio CD player. You could then copy all of your tapes onto the CD (this would cost about 15 pounds) with each track number being a different file. You could then skip to the file (track) that you wanted and load it !! From: D6E (Richard Harker) Subject: Help (monitors) Does anyone know how to connect an Acorn AKF18 monitor to a Master 128?

I have just got myself a Cannon BJC-4000. It works O.K.but I don't seem to be able to print in colour. I have tried using the Printmaster Rom and TBI-68 Screen Thief, but without any joy. Is it possible to print in colour with a "B" or a Master 128? Is there anyone out there who could give me some advice? My address is; 5 Wood End Hill Harpenden Herts AL5 3EZ From: D4A (Paul Richmond) Subject: Lemmings I have been given a copy of Lemmings, without any instructions. It is from Micro User Vol.12 Issue 2 April 1994. Is there anyone out there who could send me a copy? I will pay all expenses.
