What drivers do you use for the DaynaPort?

So the hxc firmware supports more ST file formats on a gotek than it does on the hardware it was originally designed for?

Does that include the body of the mouse or just the board that goes inside?

Might be cheaper to hack an optical mouse and plant it inside.

Re: Help with Pompey Pirate menus

Not for iPad unfortunately, emulators on iPad are pretty scarce in general because of Apple's walled garden, unless the developer hides one inside another app which I've seen for SNES emulation.

Android or Raspeberry Pi is the way to go for Atari Emulation if you want something more portable

This diagram it's the DSP one. Nothing new or different here from stock Falcon. Given the size of the hole and your question about what's worth removing I would guess it could have had a Nova Graphics card or similar as there doesn't appear to be any major modification done besides that and the siz...

Re: CT60e and Nemesis

The CT60 will work alongside a bus speeder. I use mine with a Phantom with no issues at all. The trick is to get it all stable with just the Nemesis in first. It has been recommended in the past to use good quality coax for the clock runs (there's a Simbo thread here somewhere about it). I think th...

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

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...
