Cheers Phil, yeah I want to play with the A3D a bit more, connect the Vortex to some nice headphones and play something with good A3D support!

Thanks clueless1, glad you liked it! :)

There was supposed to be a repair video for my Famicom Disk System, but all it needed was some solder joints fixed, so I decided not to bother making a full length video and just show the thing working.

So here 'tis!

Cool videos, need to watch some more while I work.
Noticed the Vortex 2 wasn't detected in the post, 12EB:0002 isn't there in the list. But it worked in windows, you reseat it during the cut? ;) no irq conflicts with all that fun in there?
All projects are currently on the backburner, but ARE being worked on.

Sharp eye! I noticed that while I was editing. I never reseated any cards after that point (except the NIC obviously), so I can only guess that I must have bumped it while getting the HDD in or out and it "came good".

Something to keep an eye on going forward, I suppose!

Cool, very interesting episodes! I liked the DOS/V part, too. :)

Bye the way, perhaps you don't have to remove the Japanese drivers.

My copy of MS-DOS/V 6.2 can switch between Japanese and English on the fly.
I had to enter "us" for English mode and "jp" for Japanese mode (there's more to it).

Anyway, it's just an idea. I never had the TeraDrive version, maybe it behaves differently.

Part 3 of Episode 36 is live!

In this part of the Teradrive saga, I add a much-needed second ISA slot, and take a look at some of the unique graphics capabilities.

Interesting! But even if that was an option, the TSR's for Japanese mode use a lot of RAM, so my method has that going for it! :P

Agreed, no problem. :) I just thought it might be handy to have both incase you want to run jap. DOS games or utilities.
If you need Kanji/JIS support occasionally, there's a little TSR, DOS-J Plus (pw dosjp12), which can be loaded at runtime and kinda gets away with garbled text.

Btw, I've just watched your new episode in which you soldered that ISA connector - congrats on a job well done! :-D

Cheers man! :)

Part 4 (the final part) of Episode 36 is live!

I get the sound card playing nicely with the sans-negative-12v Teradrive, and mix the outputs for added convenience.
