Just modified game drivers, where I've adapted the MPU-401 routines for serial-port (COM1) usage. These drivers are all available in subsequent pages of the following thread, along with a small executable (SER31250.COM) that will set the PSSJ UART to 31250bps:

Recently swapped-out the dimming CM-11 monitor with its newer-style (and less-used) counterpart. I'd thought that I was quite ready to move on from this system, but apparently not, having recently completed "Conquests of Camelot" on it besides. C'est la vie...

CM-11s are so nice -- I hope you're able to get that dimming one repaired rather than junked

I think the CM11 is a rebranded 1084 ?

Couldn't say. The actual picture tubes may be similar, in any event.

In other news, I swapped the Iomega Jaz with an external Microtech PCD-47B unit tonight; it having been on the to-do list for some time. There's no associated performance benefit, but the noise reduction is worthwhile, despite the hit to the overall aesthetics.

I'm really quite done with this system now. No, really. :lol:
