Re: Additional OPL2 sound through parallel port ?

Wrong, wrong ... If I do alone some project, then it is complete different case than here, where is asked for contribution of others. And asked for opinion. I gave mine, and then some silly talk started by Joska in first place. Do this, but don't expect that everyone will be excited and especially ...

Re: Additional OPL2 sound through parallel port ?

I've checked the schematics again - wiring Busy to Init (IOW) seems to be the only thing we need - you don't need to read from the OPL2 - so this way we could use the parallel port OPL2! Already ordered the OPL2LPT - I'm excited to see how it compares to my C64 SFX Sound Expander (modified to OPL2)...

I propose you present some apologies.
This is a warning.
Believe me, you'd better do.

Re: Additional OPL2 sound through parallel port ?

Sorry, that 'expert' was not for you, but OP. If it is about the parallel port not being bi directional, this sound add on, to me, should receive infos, not send some to the Atari. Now what a fuss and strange behaviour. The kit costs 35€. It is certainly worth studying it. Yes it could be used in a...

Re: Additional OPL2 sound through parallel port ?

I posted in Atari music, thinking for people who like specific sonorities, they might find it interesting. Of course yes it will need some work, for example to integrate in a soundtracker. I think there must be some sources of soundtrackers (in C) on the PC using this chip, so adding that to an ST s...

Re: Additional OPL2 sound through parallel port ?

The problem isn't the driver (although there can be an issue with PC vs. Atari parallel port compatibility). The real problem is usage -- even for the target audience (PC/DOS users) there's been only a handful of games patched. For Atari you would need to literally *create* support for that sound c...

Re: Bad Apple by Fenarinarsa (Atari STe demo) !!!!!

ok 4 colours for the MD version, I didn't notice that watching the video. Still that encodes a quarter of the infos of what I think the STE would have to encode, if it displays, as I believe, 16 colours (without further checking each picture to count the colours displayed, I'd say there are up to 16...

Re: Bad Apple by Fenarinarsa (Atari STe demo) !!!!!

first of all, this is not a demo, this is a video codec, and a poor one considering the huge file of more than 50Mbytes for example, the same animation was ported on Megadrive which also have a 68k @8mhz and it fits into 8Mbytes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vPe452cegU the real challenge here wo...

Gamopat has a few annoying Amiga trolls, especially dlfrsilver who never wastes an opportunity to throw tons of sh*t at the ST. Just ignore them. Yes, that's the facts unfortunately.

Exciting project for you! I notice you mention Render Farm. Are you planning on datacenter space in there??
