Re: PAK68/3, PuPla/2, Panther/2 and FRAK/2 English Manuals

My neighbor is from Germany, I'd ask once if he'd translate a few small manuals, but his technical skills are not computer orientated.
I know most techinal terms. I'll get him to do my FalcoGen manual, and another and see how he does.

Re: PAK in 1040STE?

Sadly, it's still packed away - just haven't had time. /sigh... It's important to note that while I successfully (with a ton of help from the Atari community and Pakman) put a Pak 68/3 board into my STacy, it is without either a Frak or PuPla board. To put either one (or preferably both) in, I woul...

Re: Dead Falcon - no boot / coloured screen only

I've never experienced any oscillator failure, guess it's possible. The ST clock should be fine.

Re: 68040 40Mhz Upgrade on Milan

Still working in my Afterburner Falcon. It's had so many bus accelerators lot of rework required.

Purchased a pre-built Amiga adapter for the 060 since this thread started.
Also sent one of the DIY 060 Amiga to Neurotoxic, more 060 Mailan's the merrier :)
Soon!

Desktopper case :) Thanks for the link, I have another book marked somewhere, still prototyped though. Yes, there is a mod on the bottom of the board to do, forget exactly what it was, but simple and is documented with the GAL package from Best. Darklord picked up the motherboard from me last year, ...

Re: PAK in 1040STE?

Assuming you have the required adapter (PLCC CPU socket to DIL), a PAK030 will also work in an STE. However, the manual mentions that this adapter is often the cause of problems due to bad contacts. :) Yes, that is a difficult adapter to aquire. They were sort of made to work with the MonSTer board...

Have a PAK030 with buffer board and FRAK gathering dust for a bit. It's one of the newly made units from the UK Retro Store.

Re: Atari TT bundle and Crazy Dots

It's not too bad, depending how much you want something. For some post from Germany seems very inexpensive for Falcons, TT is more of a bundle. I'd bet much less then $200 to ship.

Did you look at the clock buffer, if present?
NTSC Falcons have the 4 pin can to the right of the NVRAM, PAL has a 2 input, forget where.

Re: USB printer driver project

The Axis looks promising for my use as there are Epson drivers for older ink jet color printers for NVDI as well as support in most other TOS programs. Do you know if the current ESC/P-R used nowadays is compatible with the old ESC/P ? I sure don't. I'm a thrift store buyer, anything I find will be...

Re: Beginning of very long journey

Could you also consider a PGA or modified DSP pinout where the DSP can relatively easily swapped out? Without a 56k sheet in front of me, recall the 56002 and upward compatible have a few pins swapped. They may also include increased memory management. F030NG is designed with 56303 DSP, which, whil...

Re: Wireles keyboard

Is the KB connection on Firebee Atari keyboard compatible then? If so, sashapoint, you have adapter that came with Falcon. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work then. You just have to find wireless PS2 keyboard and mouse separately.

Re: Beginning of very long journey

Visually check the SDMA CLKIN point. The common trace from the COMBEL to both the FPU clock and SDMA clock makes a small but severe dog leg turn around another IC's resistor. From normal view, the "jump" under the resistor is left of the SDMA clock pin, about 20mm. Could you also consider ...
