Re: SmallyMouse 2 and Bluetooth?

Not anyone? No one has tried running a Bluetooth joystick through a SmallyMouse 2?

SmallyMouse 2 and Bluetooth?

Hey guys. I don't personally own a SmallyMouse 2, as I don't need one with my CosmosEx. However if it could work with Bluetooth, that could change things. I already own a Bluetooth controller from 8bitdo and with one of their retro recievers in theroy it could work. But that depends on how the Small...

Problems with my Gotek with Hxc

Hey guys. So a guy came to me and wanted me to install my old Gotek I had. It has HxC2001 v3.0.8.2a and the machine is a STE with Rainbow TOS. I got it installed but it started acting real wonkey on me. For one no matter what I mount in slot 001 it would never read, even if I put the same disk in an...

Now I turn it on and it has a constant clicking sound. I think the drive is out of allingment. I have some other options and I will tr...

Two redLED lights on my STF

Hey guys. So I was handed a STF that the guy didn't know if it worked. We hooked it up and it gave me a very odd faded bomb screen. So I opened it up, reseated the MMU, GLUE and TOS chips. It now turns on and goes to the desktop with A: and B: drive. The drive makes noises like it's reading a disk, ...

How can I split a ROM file?

So in the near future I should come in posession of 2 28 pin EPROMs that I have been told are flashable. I would like to pop in some TOS versions right into my machine without having to do any soldering like I do with 32 pin chips. But my question is how do I split a TOS ROM file in to Hi and Low? I...

Re: Latest Firmware Kills my CosmosEx

Ok, I am glad that it's not just me. Maybe there is something with an older pi then, since others aren't getting the same issue. We'll see what Jookie has to say. And ggn, if you need it I have a image saved with a Jessie image. It has everything minus the two updates in 2018. If you'd want it, PM me.

Re: Latest Firmware Kills my CosmosEx

Well isn't that strange? The newest firmware is working using the Yocto SDcard image but it brakes using the Jessie image. I know I own a Pi Model 2 B, but I was instructed a long time ago to change it to Jessie because it was made for my Pi model. Now I have it upgraded and the USB ports are workin...

Re: Latest Firmware Kills my CosmosEx

That's a very bold statement. All the firmware does is to either communicate with Atari (custom ICs - Hanz/Franz) or provide an user-space application to the underlying Linux OS. It doesn't know anything specific about USB ports or any other RPi hardware. I don't what else it could be. I have my fi...

Latest Firmware Kills my CosmosEx

Hey guys. So this last weekend I decided to try the newest firmware posted last year. I updated it and I instantly lost my mouse. Looking at the problem further, I discovered that it killed my self powered USB hub I had plugged into it, so that killed my USB thumbstick, mouse and wifi. After looking...

Re: Not running on my STFM

1. Both my STF and STFM are TOS 1.02. My STF was originally 1.00 so I had to upgrade the machine to get it to work properly. Do you think I need to have my STFM at 1.04 for it to work? 2. Yeah you have to wait until the CosomsEx orange lights turn off, blinks a blue light, then nothing. Also the aud...

Not running on my STFM

Hey guys. So I bought a STFM last week and I wanted it to house my CosmosEx v1.0. I have it working great on my STF (with Main version 2017-4-13, when I upgrade things just fail, but thats the start of another thread). I'm using Raspian as the linux framework. When I plug it all in, I can never get ...

Re: CosmosEx Raspian software with mouse problem

Solved this problem, as it wasn't a problem at all. As I said that the mouse sensitivity was way floatyer going from Yacto to Raspian. But I just bought a read Atari mouse for the first time in forever, and found that it was floaty. That the Raspian is closer to real emulation than Yacto. So it wasn...

CosmosEx Raspian software with mouse problem

Hey guys. I just updated my Pi software to the Raspian CE software. I have a first generation CE, but it still worked fine. I have noticed a slight difference though. When I use a wireless mouse, the mouse seems to have more of a floaty motion that I didn't notice under the Yacto software. But when ...

Re: Anyone getting bombs with Automation floppy disk emulation?

Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. My CE is like a miracle inside my ST. It just took me quite some time to figure out how to mod the larger EPROM chips that you can buy off of ebay. But I know how to do it now, so it should be a simple upgrade :-)
