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: Thunder Storm IDE/Fastram Interface for Atari TT

I would be interested in the Lightning but as far as I can tell it doesn't fit with the Atari FastRAM board in place. Oh well. It's a pity I missed out on the Storm as I've just acquired a couple of 32MB EDO sticks from a friend. I just took my Atari FastRAM card out of the box and looked, that thi...

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...

Re: Atari TT030 and system V

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.

As it happens, once I made sure that the mask being passed to Ongibit was an unsigned short it did work. However, I didn't realise that it did as it seems the game I was testing this with seems to reset the PSG Port A for some unknown reason, which meant that my work was undone by it. It was only af...

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 ...

Re: Controlling the TT sound system.

Upgraded to mintlibs Pl.46 (still gcc 2.5.8 PL 1). Tried passing an unsigned short as the mask and no difference. I even tried setting the high byte rather than the low one in case that was the issue, but no.

Re: Controlling the TT sound system.

Well, the original didn't work to turn off the speaker (it continues to operate).

I changed the value to 6 after reading the definition of the function calls in "Atari ST Internals" which says give the bit number and gives examples in assembler.

Re: Controlling the TT sound system.

Thanks. The relevant code in BLOCK2.C seems to be: void Set_Speaker( void ) { if( IsSpeaker() ) { if( cur_value.TT_Speaker ) Offgibit( 0xBf ); /* Turn off Speaker */ else Ongibit( 0x40 ); /* Turn on Speaker */ } } However, if I use this in my program it doesn't seems to do anything at all.

Where can I find the complete source of XCONTROL.ACC?
