Re: [midatlanticretro] Cromemco D+7A board wanted
Re: [midatlanticretro] Cromemco D+7A board wantedThat’s a good one, too. I just bid on a Panasonic CCTV monitor — the Apple monitor I have is good but the picture is rectangular rather than square. I also searched my junk boxes and couldn’t find the joystick pots I had from Rat Shack. Short of locating a Futaba T5, does anyone know of another joystick with 5k pots (Radio Shack, TI, Apple, etc.)? At this point I’m not looking for 100% authentic — just close so I can get a prototype breadboarded.
I now have LIFE and Kaleidoscope working just fine. It’s pretty!

I found another pic from VCF East 6.0
This has the two joysticks, mine and Bill's replica

After a lot of looking, I found that Futaba T5 seriesRC model transmitters have joystick modules with the correct pot values andlook about right. I showed my Cromemco loaded IMSAI chassis at VCF Eastlast year. I think there are some pictures on the web somewhere that showhow my repros turned out. Oh, one other thing, if you find a D+7A withoutthe edge connector, I have a spare.-----Original Message-----All --

Subject: [midatlanticretro] Cromemco D+7A board wanted
After the CP/M workshop, I decided to pull out one of my Dazzler boards to see if it worked. The board I pulled out works (with an old Apple composite monitor) so I’d like to locate a D+7A digital/analog board used for the joystick interface. Does anyone have a spare working board they’d be willing to part with? I also have to see if I have the parts to make the JS joystick console.
I haven’t tried to load-up any of the Dazzler programs yet but I plan on doing that this week and I’ll report back.
