Re: Mega ST 2 with very noisy floppy drive

To be honest I've not looked inside. Just powered it up to confirm it worked but it sure does rattle. Wasn't sure if all Mega STs did this or not.

Mega ST 2 with very noisy floppy drive

Picked up a cheap Mega ST 2 today, which has made me very happy, but apart from the mono monitor being a bit wonky (which I'm not as worried about right now), I've noticed that the floppy drive is very noisy compared to my standard case STe - are all Mega ST floppies noisy due to the redesigned case...

Re: New online "retro" image tool

Simply amazing - I just need to write some code to display them on a real Atari outside of NeoChrome Master now - i.e., 68000 routine for loading and displaying an IFF file. :-D

Re: New online "retro" image tool

Thanks for the quick response - the test version definitely implements the Checks dither much better (very high seems the closest parallel to the original). Anything that calls SaveSPU still not saving for me though, it still falls over at var Context = Canvas.getContext("2d"); with the er...

Re: New online "retro" image tool

Also - can you re-implement the older version of the checks algorithm? It seemed more pleasing on the eye and "smoother" to me - for example :- http://www.alphatron.co.uk/~robcowell/atari/NewChecks.png versus http://www.alphatron.co.uk/~robcowell/atari/OldChecks.png

Re: Where to hook up my VBL?

Done this way cos I'm a novice :-) , so your suggestions of a better way are always appreciated. Reason I don't just smack the colors in the registers is that I need a register free (d7) to hold the count of times I'm looping round, so moving the palette into d0-d7 for a movem.l would overwrite it. ...

Re: Where to hook up my VBL?

Thanks both of you, I'll make the necessary changes and read up further on VBL counters. I originally suspected it was due to me wiping out the whole VBL, so I did try wiring up to $4D2 instead of $70, but that brought things down like a house of cards! 8O I have seen some of those demo frameworks, ...

Where to hook up my VBL?

So I'm starting to code my first ever 68000 demo (no more STOS, no more DCK!) and I'm getting a bit stuck. :( If I hook my VBL code to play music *after* I fade my picture in, it works. If I hook it before (because I want it playing as the fade is happening), the music plays but the fade never happe...

Confused by an example in the Perihelion tutorials

So this snippet has me confused (Part 4, Page 17):-

Code: Select all

move.l #$3,a3 a3 = 3, make a3 point to $3
move.b $1,d0 d0 = %00000001, put the value of $1 in d0
move.w -(a3),d3 a3 = 1, d3 = %0000000100000010


surely that last pre-decrement should make a3 = $2 ?
