Re: TOS 2.06, failed to allocate window memory

You seem to be using extended VDI mode. How many bitplanes and which screen size you use? Any other things that differ from the Hatari defaults? Do things work OK if you start Hatari using defaults for everthing except TOS? (I've never heard of the kind of problem you have, but TOS could fixed size ...

Re: Open Source 68K Accelerator Project(s)

I don't know... There would need to be something in ROM that would load & execute floppy boot sector, and is compatible enough with 030 to do that. Easiest is just to test it, new EmuTOS snapshot was just released:

EmuTOS is even better bet. There are 192k, 256k & 512k versions, ROM, floppy & program versions of TOS, debug symbols, sources, it supports every possible Atari model and additionally ColdFire Firebee & evaluation boards, even Amiga,,,

Re: Aranym, fVDI and Linux MiNT 18.3

Is Mint optimized to take benefit of JIT ?? Why the Disk IDE emulation slows down so much in JIT mode? I assume that you have more NativeFeatures drivers in use with MiNT than with your plain (Emu)TOS setup, and MiNT probably handles idle better (uses halt instruction). In disk case, is it possible...

Re: PaintPro by Abacus Software, dump anyone?

With Hatari, you could try using "--trace os_base" (or "--trace gemdos --conout 2" with older Hatari version), to see whether program outputs anything to console, whether any file accesses fail and does it terminate gracefully with pterm0().

I don't know much Aranym, but can't you try this fVDI thing in Hatari as well? With Aranym, people use fVDI driver that's just a thin wrapper around Aranym's NatFeats VDI feature. It supports larger resolutions and bitdepths than what Atari natively supports. However, to use fVDI with Hatari, you n...

Re: Bad Mood : Falcon030 'Doom'

I wonder if the new vs old core is indirectly changing the DSP duty? It doesn't emulate cache at all, so its balance is quite different. When I run "CenTurbo benchmark", it gave different Hatari versions, and CPU cores quite different speeds: 2.0, WinUAE CPU core: * FPU: 920 MHz * DSP: 64...

Re: Worms Engine for the CT60 RELEASED

For symbol names it's enough that they're unique, they don't need to be descriptive.

Re: How do I use a .cfg within the Hatari folder (over all others)

Create a shortcut which asks Hatari to load config from a directory/file of your choice. Hatari has "--configfile" (-c) option for this.

Hatari doesn't refer to register and is portable. Config file is optional, Hatari has sane defaults.

Hatari measures both instructions & cycles, so you will see also where sleeping (e.g. stop instruction) is happening. And with symbols, you can get also callgraphs, i.e. what is calling the sleeping functionality. Problem with multitasking environment is that there are multiple programs running,...

Yes, it seems to point to your system library, not what you installed. Which is strange, because /usr/local/lib should already be in dynamic linker search path.

If that points to correct SDL library, run Hatari without ldd or grep.
