Are you sure the parity chips can just be removed and the ram will still function? They have the same chip markings as the 8 chips that sit on the opposite side

I have a hot air station so I might do this if you're sure parity isn't needed.

So, parity simm = EDO simm?

As it was listed as an EDO simm when I bought it

I think I read somewhere that Exxos said FPM simms weren't a good idea or unreliable with his board?

Exxos Falcon ram module simm compatibility

Hey Exxos, just wondering if it is possible to replace the large SMD in the centre of your falcon ram board near the simm socket with something smaller in size? Reason being it impedes the insertion of a simm board if the simm happens to have chips on both sides. Didn't see any mention of non-double...

Re: CT60e is coming :)

Many Thanks Willy! Today arrived ct60e... It time to move ct63 from my Falcon and will be instalation ct60e. Is the difference that much to swap those out? Just curious on why you'd get the ct60e if you already had a ct63. I would like someone to do a side-by-side photo comparison, a before and aft...

It also will not fit an Amiga 600 either because of the metal joystick port holes, for which you will also need these

Re: JoyFi - wireless joystick adapter

So, I bought and assembled the JoyFi adapter, unfortunately the slave board won't fit in the area where the Atari joystick/mouse ports are because of the way it is designed. Think I will need to add another ribbon cable in place of the port that is soldered to the board. JoyFi_Atari_ST_01.jpg JoyFi_...

Does anyone know where I can source the plastic variety (non-metal-shielded) DB9 connector shown in the picture here (I just want the black end of these adaptors).

Re: Falcon Nemesis rewire with questions

1. I don't think this is normal, haven't powered mine on for a while but I don't remember having this issue.
2. I haven't tried this before, will let you know what happens when I give it a go.
3. What is HRTC mode?

Re: JoyFi - wireless joystick adapter

Looks good, Dal and I started experimenting with something similar about 4 years ago. Glad someone has brought the idea we had to life and for a decent price at only £25/£18. Very good.

Thanks for sharing this.

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?
