Re: Wish list for2020… or beyond

Speaking of SuperVidels, I really hope the Nature bros will find a way to diagnose this issue: http://atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=100&t=35445 otherwise *if* the new batch of SuperVidel will be made, there's going to be a lot of people upset. It's not a SuperVidel bug, it's CT60 bug but it oc...

Re: Texel sources available

There is even a nice bonus, you can track changes between each version (1.60, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2).

But I agree, the fact it is made in Pascal and even a custom Pascal compiler is needed makes this very challenging to get it working.

Re: Sunday riddle: TT-RAM speed oddity

I don't think it can be done better. That would only be possible if the MMU would allow larger physical pages, but 32K is the maximum. But isn't the point here that it's the TTRs which makes the odd-numbered blocks faster? So page size shouldn't matter. Would also be interesting to run this test on...

Re: Original video clock to SuperVidel

Also, take a look at the bottom of the screen: IMG_20200105_164719.png This is not a software / rendering error (it's not present on Videl output), this has started after the mod (before the mod the SV output was identical to Videl). It nearly looks like SV is calculating the size of frame buffer in...

Re: Do you know someone who owns a Sparrow / FX-1?

As I have discovered another two Sparrow units I wanted to edit my list at viewtopic.php?f=27&t=31148l#p312095 and what a surprise, I can't.

So please consider the list as deprecated, I'm going to update https://mikrosk.github.io/sparrow only from now on.

Re: Looking for some tools GCC / GDB and a bit of advice.

As a Devpac alternative, vasm (http://sun.hasenbraten.de/vasm) is way to go. The most painful thing currently is debugging. You either has to rely on an emulator's abilities (Hatari, Steem) or do it the old school way (Devpac's MON etc). gdb used to work nicely with gcc-2.x compiled sources but that...

Flyback is always a good idea to replace and yes, that would be the first thing I'd try. Also, the service manual has some good hints on what to check.

I will swear on whatever book you choose that the label was 1040ST, not 1040STf. This book says that the first all in one ST was a 1040STf. And did it have a floppy drive? Because AFAIK, there wasn't any plain 1040 ST machines at all (i.e. without the PSU + floppy). So yours would be the first I ha...

For me, this is a clear winner against the ST Anthology trilogy. Much more polished, proof-read, structured, with the right amount of text and pictures. My dream is to see "Business is War" in this form, that would be the ultimate Atari book ever. Thanks Karl!
