1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    VGA is an outgoing graphics port so you aren't going to be able to use that.
    I bought a kit to make my own usb to combro possibly from here, so I'm sure you can buy one on the web.

    The Chronoscopes website sells serial cables and is out of stock, but I very much doubt a laptop would have the port.

    however there is http://www.chronoconnect.com/cables.html who sell the USB cables you need.

    The chronoconnect cable for the Combro is the best bet.

    I have the Combro to serial cable and you would have to add a serial to USB cable to achieve what you want. Even at eBay prices that's an expensive solution.

    The laptop would have a connector of this type:

    https://www.db9-pinout.com/

    The Combro serial lead should plug directly into that.

    If you want to go from the serial cable to USB then you need a converter lead.

    The chronoconnect lead goes direct from the Combro to a USB port.

    USB is your only option here, you probably used this with an older laptop that had a 9 pin serial port.

    Got mine from

    http://www.chronosoft.co.uk/

    With the OTG, connects to phone and computer, and price isnt excessive. Also a nicely made piece of kit, and yet to have a problem with it. (Thats a good thing, by the way!)

    EDIT Forgot- this has its own software- I had trouble with a few versions, this one worked fine from the off.

    I do have the cb-625 serial cables but since Stott started selling his USB version I decided to mark it no stock on the website to avoid disappointment. If you want one, 'phone and I will try to talk you out of it. I used to sell 1 serial cable for every 26 cb-625's and that was okay until a new breed of USB3.0 adapters appeared on e-bay and caused me no end of troubles.

    I like the USB1.1 adapter sold by Rapid, if only it did not have such a long cable on it. USB is always backward compatible so 1.1 works on everything. The cb-625 sends at 9600 baud so no speed is required, a boy scout with semaphore flags could probably keep up with it.
