Escape Paint saves .TRP which is more or less raw + 8 bytes header, IIRC.

Re: CT60 + CTEX + ScreenEye review & experiments

Yep, Apex is next on my list. Feel for exxos, but great deal for you! Very clean installation. Just to clarify, I bought only the CTEX from him. He had no use for it. I have a PAL Expose I could part with, it will allow much higher capture quality (SVHS-RGB) than the ScreenEye. There's a guy asking ...

Re: CT60 + CTEX + ScreenEye review & experiments

OK, I'm not going to tease you much longer. :) Does it work? It does! It's nearly unbelievable because not only the ScreenEye driver/application works with CT60, it works with TT RAM flags enabled and without any sync issues at all! This would be all cool and awesome except the developers had made a...

CT60 + CTEX + ScreenEye review & experiments

A few weeks ago I managed to get hold of the ScreenEye card for the Falcon. With zero information and expectations I managed to get it running. In 320x240@16-bit, that is (as it supports high colour only). It was fun (you may remember my Facebook post about it) but way too restricted. Having the car...

It seems like a good solution to fit a cosmosex internally (if it works!) and solves the cabling problem.

I have it here but haven't managed to try it out yet.

Re: 68020 booster

I think, with a pcb, you could get better signals, but not as flexible as ribbon cable. Something like the CTEX for the CT60 http://nature.atari.org/Pics/IMG_0619.JPG (the white board) Just for the record, that is not a CTEX. That's Nature's home cooked expansion slot extender. The CTEX looks a bit...

Re: CT2B Flash 1.41 English

Is there any benefit to 1.41? I didn't know it even existed. That is a very good question. While investigating this issue I saw this question asked numerous times. R. Czuba claims while he was at Centek, he guaranties only versions up to 1.32 being good. I'd imagine that they have mostly updated Ce...

I know this is a long shot but any chance somebody got this version for the Centurbo card? Latest English available (on dhs.nu) is 1.39.

Re: 1920x1080 stopped working

IIRC 1920x1080 requires the use of reduced blanking, which is ok on digital DVI, but not always on analag VGA monitors. It’s likely to be a timing issue, methinks. As expected, another SuperVidel (and even another Falcon) produces the same results (quite an experience to take out the SV out of stor...

Re: CT60 + Phantom

Maybe an NVRAM issue? Can't rule this possibility out -- I did have a bad NVRAM in there but that would be quite an interesting scenario where bad NVRAM influences CT60 mode only. And then magically doesn't after three years. Anyway, NVRAM has been changed now so I really hope I wont see any RGB tr...

Re: CT60 + Phantom

Just to add a 3 year later followup: Today I've disassembled the Falcon in question (after having it in a storage place) and while doing some tests I've got the idea to check RGB again. And yes, it works. Just like that. I guess sitting the problem out is a valid bugfixing approach sometimes. ;)

Re: Open source Mario port to 030/060 Falcon?

It uses SDL2 (which hasn't been ported to Atari yet) so you couldn't just take & recompile it. Also, SDL_Mixer routines would need to be adapted to Falcon hardware (IIRC, SDL_Mixer tends to be rather slow).

Apart from that it could be an easy ride, yes.
