Help Needed!! FDD35 and latest Ti-Of-TTL by pear
« dnia: 2024.05.24, 17:55:55 »
Hi, i'm looking for some help regarding the new FDD35 and also the Ti-of-TTL: so the problems are :

- FDD35 works without a problem with 2 FDD3000 original drives ( A and B ), works with PC floppies but if you put a Gotek in this mix it replicates the amount of drives.
So in a Gotek alone configuration if you do GO TO *":" and then CAT * , i'm getting 2 drives (A/B) . If i put a Gotek and a PC drive, i get 3 drives (A/C/B)
Anyone encountered this problem? I'm using a straight cable with 2x3.5 idc + 2x5.25 IDC. Jumpers are configured to XT XT AB AB. Tested all possible combinations and always get 2 extra drives  with the Gotek.

- Ti-of-TTL works in 48k Spectrum +/Timex 2048 but can't put it to work with +2 Grey / 2A /2B.
*For +2 Grey, i've tested with and without 74LS08. It has an Amstrad ROM, so tested with AMS jumper , 5-6. Always get a white border and black paper. The FDD35 is always accessing the Gotek and doesn't advance, do anything else. Remove jumpers gets the Spectrum menu.
*For +2 Black, tested with 74LS08 inserted, jumpers A13 1-2 / A14 1-2 (27C256) , jumpers 5-6 and AMS. With this configuration always get a screen full of squares and some flickering

If anyone has had these problems or similar please add your input here. All the help is appreciated.

Best regards,
Pedro Torres

It seems no one has interest in helping!!!

Interesting fact : Ti-of-TTL with Stavi rom works with +2 grey but doesn't with +2a/b

What about the DE and OE jumpers in case of +2A/B?
BTW. If you short AMS and A14 at 1-2 and 5-6 simultaneously you got a hazard.

Hi ArturM, tried the OE and DE jumpers, but with A13 and A14 jumpers fitted as 1-2 / 1-2. As for the AMS was fitted too and the 5-6 was also fitted.

So your recommendation is A13 / 1-2 for 27c256 . A14 only 5-6 plus AMS and OE/DE? I'll give it a go and see...

Another instance is with +2 Grey, can get it to work with the Rom 2015 Ti-of-TTL but with the Stavi one it works fine.

Best regards,
Pedro Torres

In this setting you have to upload a IF ROM image at correct address, because the A14 become always high.
Or fill all the 27c256 area (8-times).

Advice: For testing use some compatible Flash like W27E257-12.

Hi ArthurM, tried as you said and still didn't work. ZX Spectrum +2A gives squares on screen but works without a problem without the Interface connected

Apart from the hardware jumper setting, did you use the correct interface ROM images for particular ZX models? IMO:
- For 48K - use original IFROM image: TI4TC2048.ROM,
- For 128K, +2 Grey - use IFROM modified by STAVI for 128K: 3000STAVI128.ROM,
- For +2A/B, +3 - use IFROM modified by MAŁY for +3: 3000PLUS3.ROM.

Hi, that is really a good question!!!

I've used only Ti-of-TTL supplied by pear , as it works fine with all 48k ( zx and Timex ) and used the Stavi one for the 128k +2 Grey.

I don't have the other one.

All the Best ,
Pedro Torres

Is there a ROM image to use TI-of-TTL with native 2068/2086?

The content is not the same and the amount of code is slightly different.

Both of these ROMs are identical... and corrupt.
Attached are two versions of working (at least on the emulator) ROMs...

MD5:
6278227f7e234fa560eddd0e1d019801  2068.rom
6278227f7e234fa560eddd0e1d019801  ts2068.rom
Machines should work. People should think.
