old switcheroo questions
From: ZACKS To: MARTYGOODMAN
I have finished the hardware project, The Old Switcheroo II. I
now have 2 apparently unrelated problems. The first is with the
switch box it self. When I plug two devices in the Joystick
jacks, and the switch’s plug into the CoCo, the keyboard is
locked on power up. Unplugging the switchbox’s plug fixes the
situation. Any ideas?
Also can a hires interface go bad? Mine apparently has. None of
the software I have which uses won’t work anymore. With
Colormax Deluxe, the pointer arrow stays in the upper left
corner of the screen. With Home Publisher, the arrow will move
only up and down along the extreme left side of the screen.
Other software which uses the joystick or mouse without the
hires interface still function OK. Again, any ideas?
