Re: Falcon Case Badge - WANTED

I've replaced mine with the Falcon 060 repro - and I can part with it. It's in almost perfect condition, but you'll have to find some double sticky tape yourself.

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

You know Audio Sculpture well. That program refuses to run on TOS2.06 with real machines or emulated machines. Is that an NTSC issue or a TOS issue? As I've already written, the copy protection in all released versions of AS was written before the release of TOS 2.06. Part of that protection runs T...

As I wrote, it doesn't work on TOS 2.06. It works on all lower TOS versions. Your statement was that it *required* v1.02.

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

What drives me nuts is that there are lot of programs that also *require* TOS1.02 (like Audio Sculpture) It most definitely does not. However, AS' copy protection for all released versions was done before TOS 2.06 came out and so does not work on that specific version (the cracked version I release...

Re: Alternative to GPL license

I think the closest you can come is to use Creative Commons NC (non-commercial) SA (share-alike). After that you indicate on your website that hobbyists can contact you for a commercial license (you write to them that it's ok in an email).

Now I get 4 bombs after they had been in the bad system, and put back into the good system.


As Arne told you, that's because the FDD is not connected.

Re: Falcon030 Blitter emulation in Hatari

I think you'll get better answers on the Hatari dev mailinglist, but, in general the 68030 emulation is not cycle exact and especially not when interfacing with other components of the system.

Re: Faulty Atari 520STe - black screen

No you'll need one for STE. Best is if you can test with someone else's since black screen isn't the typical TOS problem (that's usually a white screen).

Replacing TOS with known good chips is always an easy start. Verify the jumpers are in the correct position for the chips used.

No time yet, but I think you're right in that a switch to avoid mono hsync will be needed.

Re: STe - Bad DMA Chip

(joska tested Closure v1.1 and it was the same. That said, my code could still be crappy ;) I hope I also get the error when I put an HC CPU in my "good DMA" STE)

I believe Leonard also has his own floppy DMA code.

This does look like the floppy load issue. joska - I'll get you a link to a v1.1-prerelease image if you want to help me test.

Re: STe - Bad DMA Chip

The HC loads the DMA bus differently - that's why it "solves" the bad DMA issue. That could of course also affect the 1772.

The v1.1 image might be interesting to test then, since it is more fault proof regarding floppy loading.
