Computer Week-end, contd.

Phoebes are a bit delayed but I will have some in 2-3 weeks. In the meantime I will open DocBrown orders this Saturday, as usual at noon CEST.

As a reminder, I still can’t ship to New Zealand, Malaysia and pretty much most of Africa and Middle East, except Israel. And since some countries might enter another lockdown due to 2nd COVID wave, this could change at any time.

I’ve been busy with some neglected personal projects that have nothing to do with ODEs or even computers. I don’t think those fit on this blog but there is no other content right now, and dire lack of photos lately, so I could maybe show some of those. I know some people who would be interested but at the same time I don’t want to confuse the general public. What do you think?

  1. Hey Deunan,
    Hope you are well.
    Just wanted to (long shot) ask if there are any spare GDEMUs available. Missed out on the last batch.
    Thank you and kind regards

  2. Hey Deunan you know I followed you for a long time. I like the radio projects you used to post on the other blog. Is that what you’ve been working on lately? ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’d definitely be interested in your other projects, I do check in frequently to see if there is any updates regarding the FM-TOWNS Wizard, but most (if not all) of your projects are interesting.

  4. Wizard still in the works?

    Will we see it this year??? My Towns II CD drive been dead a few years now.. would love to pull it back out and play it.

  5. I would like to see your other projects. May be it will give us some inspiration.

  6. Mate, my f/w update to my GDEMU seems to have failed. It’d v5.4 2014-09-09 and was on f/w 5.15.08. I thought I’d followed the update then 5.2 f/w updates correctly but I don’t seem to have the rapid flash and it boots slowly to the date/time setting then checking the disk. Can you offer any advice please? Thank you for your time.

      • On for about three seconds then blinks off and back on.

      • Well, then it’s not bricked yet, but the FW is corrupted. You must’ve done something wrong. For now lets assume you did the bootloader update right. So just flash the 5.20 FW and see if it works, if not then bootloader is still not updated and you need to start again with that. Do not skip or simplify any steps, the instructions I provided are to be followed to the letter.

      • Thanks I’ll try again on new Sd cards ๐Ÿ™‚ will report back tomorrow. Thank you for your help.

      • First opportunity today to try, still no good, doesn’t seem to read any SD card at all. Status LED is a constant 3 seconds on, blink off and then back on, repeat. It eventually drops to time settings with a non read only card (with games on), then when select is chosen it sticks on Please wait while disc is being checked. How long would you say to wait on each of the updates? I have both on separate SD cards. using a 1GB, should I try a 4GB? Fat 16 or Fat32? I’m saddened right now by this ๐Ÿ˜ฆ (thanks for your assistance)

      • I am officially no longer sad. Let me explain. I was following your guide to rename file to โ€œGDEMU.fwโ€ So instead I tried renaming to โ€œGDEMU.FWโ€ and this has worked. Thank you for telling me I hadn’t bricked it. My best.

      • That shouldn’t matter if you rename the file first and then copy it to the card, as the instruction says. What OS are you using?

      • I’m using Windows 10, not my Ubuntu machine. However it did work for me.
        The other thing I did was use an 32GB SDHC card so the combination worked. Thanks again for your assurance that I’d get it working. You were of course correct sir (y)

  7. Sure share everything you want ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have a question about my fantastic gdemu :
    With the last firmware, I can choose the speed between true gdrom speed and fast gdemu speed.
    The software switch in true speed for skies of arcadia and resident evil code veronica automatically but how I can set it manually please ?
    i probably miss something, I’m sorry…

  8. Yo, first time here, you have very snazzy looking projects. Keep up the good work.

    Also wondering, is there a specific time in which GDEmu orders open up? Would love to get one to revive my old (yellow-looking.. really gotta give it a cleanup) dreamcast.

    • There will be another GDEMU batch for sale after the Phoebes. Watch the blog, I always announce the exact day and time at least a few days ahead.

  9. Just checking if you would have any RHEA’s in stock? Missed my chance back in July.

  10. DOC IS LIVE… Already have mine.. great product… Waiting for the Wizard!!
