Re: New Internal Falcon PSU Mount for CT60, CT60e, CT63...

I'm sorry I don't get it. What PSU? The original one, used for powering 030 Falcon? Why would you do that, that doesn't make any sense.

On the other hand PicoPSU is held by the CT60 so... ?

Re: Problem with CT60e and SuperVidel

Oh crap, this isn't good. :-( CT60e's aim has been actually to IMPROVE this against CT60/CT63 where it was really normal to observe defects and deformation of the signals when going to more than 66 MHz. I remember a very strange situation when I had to stay at 66 MHz when using EtherNAT else my disk...

Re: Software/OS Patching for CT60

You basically need only one thing -- NVDI. This makes your desktop happy as even TOS4 is using Blitter for some operations. Apart from that, yes, you shouldn't use the 5s *at all*, I get Didier's intention but enable that as default is just ... crazy. It's a hack, that's all and if an app/game/demo ...

Re: [SOLD]: CT60 + 512MB RAM + Pico psu (on ebay)

From seller's perspective, this was not really worth it -- 350 UKP is literally exactly the same price for what it had been sold originally (350 EUR), I'd definitely remove the auction in such case.

N/A for stuff which is not available on all hardware parts, Unknown for stuff which is available but the editor is unable to fill it in (for instance he doesn't want to open his Atari).

Re: Duke Nukem 3D and Quake for Atari Falcon 060!

No, you don't understand. Those are ticks which power the whole game engine. How fast enemies move, how quickly a bullet hits you and so on. If the time doesn't flow naturally, all those events are accelerated / slowed down randomly. What could possibly work is to revert back to the '-frametime' par...

Re: Duke Nukem 3D and Quake for Atari Falcon 060!

Well, its 200 Hz timer. I assume if the scene is rendered in a time interval which is not close to modulo 1/200, it might misinterpret the flow of time. FreeMiNT provides super high resolution timers so the problem doesn't exist there.

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

Calimero, by the date. :) There's no Atari Falcon manufactured after 1993. Also, the S/N is reset to zero in 1994.

EDIT: You have only one Falcon listed from 1994 and it follows this "rule" -- so somebody had sold you a C-Lab Falcon in Atari case then.

Re: STing Driver coding

Which STX file?

Anyway, if you're targeting something else than bare ST, I'd advise to look into FreeMiNT drivers instead and before you ask, yes it does have an example driver included: https://github.com/freemint/freemint/bl ... dummyeth.c ;)

Try to register it on atari.org to make it easier to remember. :) Plus announce, of course.

Also, some auto-competition / validation would be useful (maybe later?) so people can realise they missed one digit or so. And yes, the resolver.
