Re: New CT60 Boot ROM 1.05

And a big thank you to Patrice Mandin for coding the first versions of the CT60 Setup program and redistributing his sources!
(Still waiting for the ct60/sv devs to share the boot 2 and the SV_XBIOS sources ;) )

Re: New CT60 Boot ROM 1.05

Thanks evil! Btw: There now is a version C which skips the videl clock measurement+boot logo entirely. The hang-on-boot bug could be triggered if you don't have the videl clock connected to the SV-clock. (or sth like that - I don't have an SV - that's from memory). mikro is still torture testing his...

Re: New CT60 Boot ROM 1.05

There are no plans for real PCI support as those need the PCI bios routines from Boot 2. From which there aren't any sources available. (There are some sources in the 1.04 alpha - but I have no Idea how stable they are) I also have no personal interest in PCI stuff so someone else will need to take ...

Re: Replacing CT60 boot logo with Didier's tools

Remember that the picture inside pic_boot is stored as a 65k 320x240 XIMG-file; not a targa file.
You can also simply patch the ct60tos.bin - search for BEG_XIMG and place your XIMG after that.
There's also a END_XIMG tag but this isn't used.

Re: New CT60 Boot ROM 1.05

Nothing significant.
- 20190312: Added new Boot-Picture/Demo ID "DEMO"
- if used (instead of XIMG) the 2s wait after the Demo is skipped
Only useful if you code your own intro picture - that's why I haven't posted an update yet.

Hi Kroll!
Only CTPCI Ide is supported on this Boot 1 codebase.
If you are using PCI devices then you'll need to stay on Boot 2

Re: New Boot "Manager" insaneBOOT

Note that you can always run MinT tools like cp and mv with parameters (look at the autoexec.cfg for an example) to copy .acc, .inf or .cpx files :)
insaneBOOT can run programs with command line options

Re: Additional OPL2 sound through parallel port ?

I've checked the schematics again - wiring Busy to Init (IOW) seems to be the only thing we need - you don't need to read from the OPL2 - so this way we could use the parallel port OPL2! Already ordered the OPL2LPT - I'm excited to see how it compares to my C64 SFX Sound Expander (modified to OPL2) ...

Re: Worms Engine for the CT60 RELEASED

Never stated that it isn't 030 code :D I think the compiler target was 020-040 back then. My code for the audio mixer uses muls as they are fast enough - that's what i meant with 060 only as the vbl will take too much time on 030@16mhz and the game crashes.

Re: Worms Engine for the CT60 RELEASED

@Eero: The non-stripped version has nearly no routine-names either, only names such as sub_40122 etc, as it is still only a patched disassembly of the very unoptimized C compiled MAC Worms code. The DSP code used in the game is a DMA-Fifo i.e. the 060 calculates the MOD (using MULs - urgh) and trans...

I'm very happy with the decompression speed and the compression size of this one.
