Re: What is the latest Papyrus version?

Vido: yes, it's totally possible I'm mixing those events up. However I still think Mathias was in touch with someone from R.O.M. Logicware? So while the Firebee machine thing might have happened with Ulf, I still recall something about Papyrus... too long time ago.

Re: FreeMinT bug: Mount drive

Latz, can you really confirm (by running tune2fs on given partition) following scenario? 1. Print current number of mounts 2. Refresh 3. Print current number of mounts again Ideally, without any "maximum number of mounts reached" or whatever else what could lead you to false assumptions. A...

Re: What is the latest Papyrus version?

The really sad thing is that source code isn't lost and Ulli (one of the authors) isn't totally against doing something in favour of Atari users. FireBee guys had talks about it on and on, at one point he even got a FireBee to port Papyrus over but he (unsurprisingly) didn't find time. IIRC I offere...

Re: ScummVM sound on Milan

Out of curiosity, about which build we are talking about? Where it comes from? PmDoom should work fairly well, as it is based on SDL which supports a wide range of audio routines... What value do you set SDL_AUDIODRIVER to? According to my research (https://mikrosk.github.io/extended-xbios), you sho...

Re: Nostalgia Nerd - Atari Falcon video

To contribute to the off-topic spin-off :), I get mzry - he wasn't that concerned about seeing 400 000 without comma (EU standard) but more of 400.000 with dot which is, at least in Australia, denotation meant to represent 400 point zero zero zero. Is it really common (or at least not odd) to repres...

Not sure if I understand correctly, do you mean something like.... this? Uhm, stop listening to me.

Apart from that, there's nothing special in that archive - flash060 from CT60TOS 1.03d (Willy's) and drivers.hex from drivers-1.01 package. I don't understand why there is the need for init060.prg?

So a Falcon clone for me MUST be able to run Cubase Audio and all DSP based music programs to be interesting. Both CT2 and CT60 needed a patch to run Cubase. :) Of course, it's up to mpattonm to decide, I will support anything which makes the project closer to a successful end, be it a 100% compati...

Re: Beginning of very long journey

Frankly, I'd be interested to know about other cases. Are you sure you are not confusing it with a software bootstrap? I.e. that you use either Dsp_ExecBoot() or NoCrew's bootstrapper to install your code instead of the one by Atari but that is not the same problem. I'm specifically talking about D...

Re: Beginning of very long journey

My impression was that the only reason why people didn't let 32 MHz on VID32 and 50 MHz on its external clock was the difficulty of cutting the VID32 path and replacing it with a separate wire (similarly as done with the SDMA and DSP). IDK, I still feel it would be safer to have an option to run an...

If TOS needs to be changed to work with the 56301, how would compatibility with games and demos be? I wonder that too.

Of course but that is Videl's job, not SDMA's. They both share the clock for different tasks.

Re: Beginning of very long journey

One thing I do not understand well is, why SDMA is fed not only main CPU clock (16,04..MHz CPUCLKA signal), but also 25,175 MHz from VIDEL and especially, 32MHz from DSP. I mean - CLK8, CLK4, CLK2 and KHZ5000 are derivated from CPUCLKA (correct?), what is the purpose? As far as I know CLK2 (YM2149)...
