Duda instalación módulo ZIFI para ZX Evolution

Mensaje por Kristatos » 03 Sep 2019, 19:38

Hola.

Me ha llegado por correo el módulo ZIFI para el ZX Evolution, y lo cierto es que no soy capaz de encontrar instrucciones que me indiquen cómo instalarlo.

Sé que debería ir pinchado en el slot X5 de la placa, pero no tengo ni idea de cuál es la orientación correcta de los pines y de la alimentación.

Como no quiero cargarme nada, se me ha ocurrido preguntar por aquí, pues creo recordar que hay varias personas que lo tienen.

¿Podéis echarme un cable? La verdad es que una foto del montaje final me ayudaría un montón.

Un saludo.
Oscar.

I own a PentEvo, and sympathize with your dilemma!...

I don't own a ZiFi card (truth is, I was always reluctant to change it to the TS-Labs configuration, as I rather like the more Speccy styled Basic config layout), but I did often think of getting one... Id snap one up in a flash if I could keep my basic configuration for it)...

There is some info out there on the internet, and a quick google search for zifi evolution does pull up a couple of images that might be of some use to you... eg:

http://ts.retropc.ru/ - This site has some close up images that might help...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1SGuqAagVUE - This 11 minute youtube video shows a good close up at the 2.58 minute mark...

Hope those help, but of course, it also depends on the zifi module you have - I don't know if they are custom made or what variation you have...

If your interested, you might also like to know that this device (https://www.antoniovillena.es/store/pro ... or-zx-uno/) does something similar for the ZX Uno...

Good luck - let us know how it works out!!!...

PS: Where did you get yours, and how much??...

Thank you, kgmcneil! The last link shows a perfect image that has resolved my question.

I bought the ZIFI to Vitaly (alias Tetroid). The price was 18 euro with shipping to Spain.

Aside from the official ZiFi client, is there any other software that can use this wireless device?...
Correct me if Im wrong, but the official ZiFi client is run in the TS-Labs configuration, isn't it?... I assume there isn't any software in the Basic configuration that can use this, right??...

It would be wonderful if some of the ZX Uno tools (eg: PLATO) could be adapted to the Basic configuration for the PentEvo to use this device... I wonder nihirash would be interested in such development?... I wouldn't want him pulled away from the ZX Uno development to do it though... ;)

Añado, si no me aceptan los recibos del banco cuando justifique la rectificación del borrador encima me calzan una multa y devolución de lo desgravado de más.
Y, como sabrás, las multas no son de 25 €. seguro que de 100€ para arriba.

I add, if I do not accept receipts from the bank when supporting the amendment above eraser fit me fine and return of the more liberalized.
And, as you know, the fines are not 25 €. sure 100 € up.
Er?... note quite sure what the point is your making there BeJimmiesus, could you elaborate???... I might have mistranslated your message?...

Now there only one tool - ZiFi.

It works only in TSConf(but you may use double configuration - you'll have both TSConf and BaseConf). I haven't enought time to port some of my software to this dongle.

TSConf still compatible with Speccy(on Pentagon 512K level). I don't think that BaseConf is more like speccy(they're moving far from speccy now - NedoOS with tools can't be run on any other clone except ZXEvo and ATM 2+ - but BaseConf is something like ATM 3).

I have ZX-Evo with ZiFi addon.
If you still need help - I can make photo how I've installed it and help with running software.
My hardware:
ZX Uno 4.2, +UNO, ZX-Evolution Rev. C+VDac+ZXM-SoundCard Extreme+ZiFi, Harlequin 128K, Reverse U8, Leningrad 48K

My blog(and there gopher server on 70th port): https://nihirash.net/

Thanks for that kind offer there :D ... I am seriously thinking about whether or not to purchase such a wifi device, but was rather partial to the baseconf boot up service screen, and didn't really want to have to radically reconfig the whole system just to use the device... but I might reconsider purchasing such a device, and then I might take up your kind offer... I suspect that Id be able to do more with your tools on the ZX Uno than I could with the one client tool for the Evo ZiFi, which is why I asked if converting your tools was such a possibility... Don't get me wrong, I think the client tool they wrote for the zifi is pretty cool 8-) , but I see you taking the ZX Uno to places that Id love to also see the PentEvo go too (eg: PLATO network, Gopher, etc)... What a pity that politics ruins everything... :cry:

Истины ради хочу заметить, про посмотреть как работает Zi-Fi вполне возможно даже не имея ZX Evolution.
Для этого нужен любой модуль ESP8266 - от 01 до 12й версии и переходник ESP8266 => USB-COM порт, цена вопроса 2-3 $.
В эмуляторе UNREAL это замечательно работает. Ну а потом решать, нужно ли это на реальном компьютере :)
