Inside issue 21 you'll find all the regulars covering all the latest news in the SAM Coupe world. Feature articles include an interview from Frode Tennebø where he interviews David Gommeren and Rob Mies of The Lords. Gavin Smith continues his look back at some of the top SAM games, looking in particular this issue at Arcade Classics.
I look at using the MMC / SD Card slot on the Trinity Ethernet Interface. The first half of the article looks at accessing the flash cards with routines for detecting, reading and writing raw sectors. The second half goes through the patches I made to B-DOS to allow it to use the Trinity for mass storage of files. Rounding the issue off is the Developer Diary where Thomas Harte explains how he is tackling his work on creating a solid 3D engine on the SAM.
To compliment the interview with The Lords, the coverdisk features their commercial release 'Batz 'n Balls', their freeware Tetris game and their SAM demos. Other games featured on the coverdisk are Simon Owen's 'Pac-Man', and 'Soul Magician' by Lars Persson. There is also source code to go along with the Trinity article, and the source code and executable for the Trinity patched version of B-DOS.
