Dear Russ
 
Good to hear you got it working...
 
If you use the print mode in Psi2Win Build 304 and a doPDF (type) printer it makes printing from the Organiser a doddle. I use it most days for my cutting lists.
 
Boris never quite got it finished; I have to wait for it to time out at the end of a print.
 
Sincerely and in good faith
Martin
 
 
PS I've seen your post... Is there a way to improve the LCD on the LZ64
 
It will be interesting to see if anything has moved on since 2010

If nothing has changed, I would be tempted to go for your option 3 (swapping). Here you kill two birds with one stone - Get better contrast and a metal case.
 
Again in good faith
Martin
 
Addendum
 
In relation to .. does anyone have a copy of snigfarp's barbarians
 
I don't use it myself but there is an account on twitter called PsiGamer, this looks like his 'space' - again the link to the - psigamer.cyningstan.org.uk - page is broken and the twitter account looks dormant but maybe one of his 'followers' might have a copy of the barbarians for you. There is a mention of it October 2015.
 
Also Copyright Damian Walker 2019 http://damian.cyningstan.org.uk/ on his links page shows he maintains the defunct http://psigamer.cyningstan.org.uk/ it might be worth emailing damian@cyningstan.org.uk

 3   User Forum / Help / is there a way to improve the LCD on the LZ64  on: Aug 26th, 2019, 2:27am 
Started by rkdavis | Last post by rkdavis
The LCD (2line) on the XP is great for my poor old eyes but my LZ64 is a much better spec'd psion and also y2k compliant and no date problems until well after my expected death day but the characters are on the small side and on the LZ64 I have the contrast range is very small. I have an LZ too which has better contrast range but an much earlier rom and of course only half the ram.
 
Is there a way to make an LZ64 characters larger for the menu etc. or is there a suitable replacement LCD with better contrast and maybe a backlight or even some tweak/hardware mod I can do?

Glad to help
 
I didn't know there was such a thing, BTW, as a USB floppy drive that *could* read 720k disks...

It seems to me that this home made device was created to save money. Datapaks used to be relatively expensive, but you could buy bare eeprom chips much more cheaply. This thing simply allows you to swap out the chip from the "datapack".
 
I would not really call it an eeprom programmer. When Psion first designed the datapack circuitboards, they permuted the address and data lines in some way that allowed for the easiest circuits. This means however that if you take the eeprom out of a datapack and put it into any non-Psion device, its contents will seem scrambled. This device directly connects the datapack circuit to the eeprom without (un)permuting the lines, so you cannot directly use the eeproms this creates in non-Psion circuitry.
 
That isn't to say that you cannot possibly use this as an eeprom programmer. You could create software for the Psion that reads in a file (e.g. via the comms link from a PC), applies the necessary permutations, and writes that to the eeprom, after which you can use that eprom in a non-Psion device. It's just that it does not seem likely that this was ever done here.

Dear Jaap (and anyone else using the The Organiser Developer Manual)
 
The manual has the typo MIDS instead of MID$
 
POKEB $2187+I%,ASC(MIDS(item$,I%,1))
 
But now it is good for those using the online version.
 
Sincerely
Martin

Dear Daren (and others interested)
 
Please see the User Post Thread
 
http://forum.psion2.org/YaBB.pl?board=UserPost;action=display;num=154609 5336
 
Also Jaap's web site - Change Log page - suggests he has added the photos and ROM image, I can't see them yet but no doubt will soon.
 
Sincerely and in good faith
Martin

If the Datapak is OK, it is normal to wait for the software to tell you when to insert it.  The Organiser will try to format a blank pack, and if the software is expecting a blank one... so just wait for the software to tell you to insert the pack.
