Thanks . Yes, it checks for "upstream" (on the edge expansion) romcs activation and deactivates itself, if detected, to avoid conflict. It uses this detection at boot as well to enter a locked mode allowing its programming from divide without the need to use the right button on boot.schombi hat geschrieben:Interesting, I did not know there was a way to check to for other devices and take preventive action. Cleverly made!
For completeness, I did everything with my black +2B and the port extender is an angled one from divide.cz
I´m very happy everything works.
If I find the time, I will test the Dandanator 2 with my CZ Spectrum.
Once I see the "6.1" on the start screen, I can assume that updating the PIC was done correctly?
What you see (6.1) is the menu system version. The pic has an older version and should be updated manually.
Just switch on your spectrum while pressing the two dandanator buttons. You will see a message and a progress bar. It'll all be done in under 10 seconds.
This is probably the last pic update unless a bug is detected (there are just 4 program bytes remaining on the pic )
