What happens if you have 14mb in the normal ram slot?

Re: What's this Falcon board?

So after reading all the comments, am I correct in saying that this Ram module only functions when you have 4mb, 8mb or 12mb of normal RAM fitted in the usual slot?

Haven't seen a memory module plugged in that side of the board before, memory expansion is usually plugged in near the fan not near the jag and cartridge ports

Coloured bar curiosity

Why do we often see multi-coloured bars on games that are packed when loading?

Used to see this all the time on speccy and c64 games back in the day too.

Re: Vote for new feature(s) of CosmosEx!

I think this device has great potential and it's amazing work that you are doing with it but I vote that you just make it a bit more reliable first with the features it currently has.

Re: Atari 1040 STFM Mod from around 1990 (not working, link to german forum, lot's of photos, text in german)

Catmando, what makes you say that? There's no reason why a correctly connected ATX PSU should damage an ST.. the only caveat being that the ST needs to be checked for shorts on the 12V-Gnd and 5V-Gnd paths -before- connection, because ATX PSUs can source so much current that they would probably try...

Was it using an ATX psu previously or did it have an original atari one?

Someone else on here tried to use an ATX psu to debug a Falcon and ended up frying their machine. Adding an ATX psu if it didn't already have one adds another problem before you've even started.

Youtube bbcode problem

Dal, can you take a look at the youtube shortcode as it appears to not work in some instances or needs to be made easier for people to use so that it does embed properly and display on any device
