Re: Neo Desk 4 - where can i find original disks? (not emulator)

ok so how do i get any of these versions onto Atari format ie: from my PC onto a 720K Atari disk so my Atari can read it You don’t need .ST or similar to achieve that. Download from Gribnif’s page the newest Neodesk, unpack the archive on the PC. Then insert a floppy into the PC, format it. Copy ov...

Re: Raspberry Pi baremetal port?

Where did you read the word "native"? Okay, what is the overall goal now? Run TOS/MiNT "native" on a RasPi, without an underlying other OS kernel like Linux? But TOS/MiNT being 68k, not ARM binaries? How’d you do that, which layer would do the 68k->ARM emulation? And a silent vo...

Re: Raspberry Pi baremetal port?

And you would still benefit of having a userland below Hatari, for networking, or the filesystem. I would call that a disadvantage, not a benefit. The entire point of a baremetal port would be to let the "visible" OS (TOS/MiNT) be *the* OS, not an application under Linux. You don't need a...

Re: Raspberry Pi baremetal port?

I don't really think it's incomparable. For my purposes (interacting with external hardware, never using a VST plugin) TOS is strictly superior to Linux in every possible way. It's a dedicated single-purpose single-threaded real-time application, which is in my humble opinion the only tool for the ...

Re: Falcon/CT60e video options

Are you sure, that CTPCI does not work with CT60e, Did you check it ? Yes, and I have tested it in detail. CT60e has a slight hardware modification vs CT60 and CT63 which needs a new patched TOS , and this patch has been applied only to TOS 1.04, not to TOS 2.02 which is necessary to use CTPCI. The...
