Re: Lightning VME is here

I tried it with the USB enabled version of UIPtool under TOS, yes. There are drivers for STiNG and MiNT on the Lightning VME support floppy too. After finding that my old MiNT set-up doesn't work now that I have 68MB RAM I've installed the last EasyMiNT and added the latest MiNT kernel and now have...

Re: Lightning VME is here

Is anyone exposing the ports to the outside of the machine? I have a Mega STe that can use this, but I am concerned of where the ports would reach the outside of the computer and how it would look. Any Pics out there? At the moment I've got them poking out of the VME port at the back. I'm going to ...

Lightning VME + (original) Apple USB Ethernet interface = Works

I thought people would like to know that after testing Lightning VME with the original (100M bit) Apple USB ethernet dongle I can report that it works fine, at least with UIP. I now at last have a working ethernet on my TT!!! (NetUSBEE doesn't work with my TT) Seeing that these devices are readily a...

Re: TT030 VGA picture quality

Has anyone tried a VGA-HDMI adapter on a TT? Yes, it has the same problem as other devices which sample the signal at precisely the resolution it believes it should be (rather than sampling the scan line at double the frequency and then averaging pixels), i.e. is misses most of the data in the TT's...

Re: I just bought a TT030!

You can play games on the TT too, though only with the internal graphics adapter.

Petari has worked hard on systems and fixes to allow games to run from the hard disk, and many run on the TT too.

Re: SF314 models

There are a few variations of this drive. Some have standard Shugart floppy connection interfaces internally and some have custom connections. I've seen small button ones with either and large button (my first drive) which has the non-standard connector. They all have an interface board which holds ...

Re: Read about the Atari company history

Remember that patents only last for 18 years after submission (EU) or granting (USA).

Some US patents get extended by actively adding amendments and postponing the granting of the patent.

So, any patents that Atari held will all have lapsed long ago.

Re: NetUSBee TOS driver

SETMAC always says that it works... but on many TTs it doesn't actually mange to write to the EEPROM. It looks like your TT is even more incompatible with the NetUSBee than mine, though cleaning the cartridge port helped a lot. (Your results are similar to mine before I cleaned the contacts individu...

Re: NetUSBee TOS driver

It do not work on a Atari Mega ST with PAK68/3 Speeder Card with MC68030 CPU and 32kB L2 Cache. I'm wondering if it's a bus timing issue as it doesn't work on many TTs. On mine the first test program (which reads only) crashes out with bus error after a random number of test iterations and seemingl...

I wasn't talking about running Firefox on the TT That's hardly possible ;) Not only because of the speed, but also because a lot of the required libraries (like gtk) are missing. Also, the memory usage of Firefox is *MASSIVE*. On a Linux box it uses around a gigabyte of virtual memory after just st...

Re: Controlling the TT sound system.

Upgraded to mintlibs Pl.46 (still gcc 2.5.8 PL 1) Is there a specific reason for using such an old compiler? Might as well be that he is just generating wrong code. 2.5.8p1 was one of the good versions. 2.7.2 was the classic high-point for GCC and probably the last you'd want to run natively on an ...
