Re: ST emulators on Milan

Hatari runs games very well but it needs a 2GHz cpu to emulate an STE. It's not really the best option for a Milan. Funnily enough you will probably need a port of those ST emulators that run on Amiga. Compatibility is terrible but the codebase should be much simpler in order to follow and make use...

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

Why is EMUTOS called EMUTOS ??? If I am right it is called EmuTOS because its main purpose was to be replacement for the original TOS-es in EMUlators and clones because of the Copyrights. Its purpose also was not to be backward compatible but just to provide enough compatibility to be able to start...

Re: Trying NetSurf on Atari TT

Support Apollo 68080 in Atari ST computers! Amiga guys seems to be quite happy with Netsurf on that turbo card. Must be done by whom? But I think we don't need a vampire discussion in every thread. :) It would be nice to compare Netsurf running on the Firebee and on a Vampire 68080 Atari Clone. I t...

Re: Trying NetSurf on Atari TT

Decent Atari and decent browser! :)

Well, NesSurf is a decent browser! If there would be some coder(s) to do more work on it and oprimize it for Atari computer/clones it could be faster.
M0n0 did great work but now he dont maintain it any more :(

Re: Coldfire V5

Maybe, because they used V5e in different printers (and maybe other devices) and one version of V5e which would meet all requirement would be cheaper to produce as several different versions? But I agree with you. I dont think you can just replace the CPU because there could be something in V4e they...

Re: Coldfire V5

Yes, you can not just replace V4e with V5e. I believe Coldfires for the HP are custom made. If I remember righr from my long time ago reserch, V5e up to 400 MHz were made by Freescale and 540 MHz V5e were made by HP itself. I guess right address to find documentation of 540 MHz V5e would be HP or co...

Re: Coldfire V5

Fastest ColdFire V5 I saw was clocked at 540 MHz. Its not that hard to source them.
The main problem is documentation. If somebody can get documentation for it we can hope to see V5 FireBee one day ;)

As Arne says it depends what you want to do. But if you want to have game running on most Atari platforms including also Atari clones, I would recomend you GFA Basic. GFA Basic is still supported and developed further by Lonny (lp). As I know right now he is working on new version of GFA Basic and s...

Looks like the same with v1.29.... On 8.3 compliant pathname/filename, QED gets called and "display" the photo. On a non-8.3 pathanme/filename, QQD is not even running. My guess is that v1.29 tests the path/filename and then calls the viewer if the pathname/filename is valid. This is not ...

Assuming the planned acquisition of NXP by Qualcomm goes through -- this is not yet decided --, I fear there won't be new developments in the ColdFire product range anymore.
