Re: Additional OPL2 sound through parallel port ?

The problem isn't the driver (although there can be an issue with PC vs. Atari parallel port compatibility). The real problem is usage -- even for the target audience (PC/DOS users) there's been only a handful of games patched. For Atari you would need to literally *create* support for that sound ca...

Re: NVDI & character mapping

I hope I wont say something totally dumb but there used be a tool called Charmap or so and it allowed you to make a totally custom font mappings. I had used it to create local Czech/Slovak TTF map for GEM apps. EDIT: Yup, this is it: https://milan.kovac.cc/atari/software/?folder=/FONT (look for Char...

Re: Moving CT60 to a different Falcon

Well, I had the classic 74F04 clockpatch with the PowerUp2 (basically just CPU @ 32 MHz) and one of the signals went to the PU2 and then back to the 74F04 making it way too long. So I just cut the wire to the PU2, connected it directly to the 74F04 and voila.

Re: A good place for CF card on Falcon?

Yeah, exactly as Jo Even says. I had the same impression as well but only when I got his cool 'support board' it was totally obvious that the devil was in details: bending the CT60e board, not low profile enough PicoPSU. It's very misleading.

Re: CTPCI and Realtek 8139D

Interesting, looks like an internal buffer issue (not properly allocating and/or resizing or whatever). I wish I had more proper 'environment' around me for this kind of stuff... one notebook and very little free time and another project in the works --> not good. But it's not forgotten.

As a person who bought his first Atari in 1993, first ST in 1997 and first Falcon in 2001 I say yes, absolutely. Nothing beats the feeling when you code a rotating square for the first time. ;-) But as Joska says, think about what makes it fun for you. I had started with Devpac on Falcon with RGB mo...

The trouble here is not that it is hard but super annoying work. :) A lot of retries, compilation errors, comparing, ... and *then* the real debugging starts (it's very rare you get it working on the first try).

"It is repaired now. I put a wire to do the line D7 back on pin #11 of the RTC modul." In other words, the connection was destroyed by soldering. That's why other people suggest to test VCC (and other pins from the Combel etc), it's a very time consuming job. You need Falcon schematics, t...

Re: Which XIF file for Hydra network card in EasyMint 1.90?

In Ozk's driver's case it's because lack of source code. In the official driver's case, it's mostly because the source code is tailored for genst (devpac) and PureC, not impossible to change but it requires some work. You can find it here: https://github.com/mikrosk/etherne (incl. my driver for the ...

You're right, usually you're fine with caches off but not always. Perhaps wizards like ggn & co could tell you more. Or looking at it in Hatari debugger could be fun (assuming it's still happening in Hatari).
