This is one of those "this is not a bug but a feature" situations. The colours had been intentionally chosen for crappy TVs from the 70s/80s with lousy contrast.

Re: Ethernat Toast?

Exactly. What actually FreeMiNT does very well is that it's being far more sensitive for HW issues. So if you suddenly see a lot of memory violations, bus errors etc, you can be pretty sure something bad is going on with your hardware even if TOS works all right. That includes hard disk corruption a...

You can try the official build now (https://freemint.github.io/#snapshots). About the TosWin2 problem, that's rather strange, I fixed numerous bugs in it, many related to loading stored settings so I would definitely notice something odd. Isn't possible your $HOME folder isn't mounted yet (or not se...

Re: Geneva

I wouldn't be surprised if the biggest part of the data recovery price tag was actually figuring out how to get files from an Atari partitioned disk to USB flash disk, i.e. something we could have done for free with just a disk image provided. Either way, it's good to have the files back and yes, I'...

How nice! Sometimes I regret I went all the asm/c++ way instead of diving deeper into FPGA. So many amazing possibilities nowadays. Maybe it's not too late... but where to find time.

Interesting idea, how much data is the last video? What FPS you're aiming with that background scroll? (the video looks quite jerky)

It may be shocking news for you but not all developers have the CTPCI to test. And when I say not all, I mean zero.

Not sure what you mean but if Ektus tests the new kernel and will be willing to try a few things then yes, the fix would get into 1.19.

FW11 update app

Hi there,

I was wondering, any chance to get the nice GEM update app also for FW11?

Btw, is it possible that I had a SuperVidel with 005 firmware? The FW10 app told me so. When updated (with built-in FW), power cycled and ran again, I indeed saw 010 version.

Maybe because FreeMiNT developers use the mailing list for communication. :-)

Re: CTPCI and Realtek 8139D

I had to use a specific version of MiNT, too, namely a daily build of 0.17 from back then. Any other version (at the time, 0.18) wouldn't work. I don't know what changes there are or if it's compiler related or whatever, but that's all I can say on the topic. Man, you should report issues like this...
