Re: Atari file system support for Linux ?



Thanks, Frank.

I've been doing a lot of image work recently, so will give this a go & let you know how I get on.

Cheers,

Re: Bad Mood : Falcon030 'Doom'

Just a quick note to thank the developers. I downloaded this and gave it a go a couple of nights ago. Worked first time (when I figured out what WADs were and what to do with them). It's very smooth indeed and seemed eminently playable although, not being a Doom fan myself, I didn't really know what...

Re: Falcdate: a new Falcon NVRAM utility

So I asked the question what settings should be in the file falcdate.cfg ? I hope now that everything is clear. Sure. The example falcate.cfg I posted above shows you all the options. Simply fill in the ones you want and comment out the ones you don't. I suspect STiNG needs something that runs afte...

Re: Falcdate: a new Falcon NVRAM utility

Hi Kroll, Sorry, I'm not sure what you're asking. You can set as much as is supported or as little as you wish in the config file. Anything not set, won't be altered. I'm not really familiar with nvram.cpx -- however it looks like most of the settings are a mess, there. Colours (farben), Language (D...

Re: Falcdate: a new Falcon NVRAM utility

Sounds like in CT6X mode, it can't establish the correct updates have been applied and so is rebooting each time. The config file lets you decide what you want to set. If you choose to set nothing (commenting out all the NVRAM stuff) then you shouldn't get the reboot loop. Of course if you do want t...

Re: Falcdate: a new Falcon NVRAM utility

Well apart from the reboot not working (which is odd, but you have a workaround for that), it sounds like your internet is not up and running by the time it executes (could not resolve meaning your DNS isn't working). Does it work if you run it from the desktop? If so, then something is establishing...

Re: Falcdate: a new Falcon NVRAM utility

OK thank you, but I have a question Firstly, does this program work on CT6x and CTPCI? Couldn't tell you, sorry. Haven't got one. If they do funky things with NVRAM, possibly not. The way it works is it reads NVRAM, then sets the options you've specified (which may legitimately be none), and then r...

Re: VGA adapter with Blow Up and VGA/RGB switch

Has anyone had any luck with Videl Inside? I really like the interface and find it rather intuitive plus it can also take a variable external clock parameter to help you get the rates right. My issue with it is that when selecting multisync, no modes then show up in the resolution changing program o...

Re: VGA adapter with Blow Up and VGA/RGB switch

Are you loading BlowUP / Videlity at the end of everything else? I know in the instructions for BlowUP it said to run it after everything else in your auto folder. I need to test it in MiNT still myself, I managed to get an 800x600x256 going, but I still need to fix some things in my MiNT setup. Ye...

Re: VGA adapter with Blow Up and VGA/RGB switch

Videlity results look like bus overload to me, i.e., you're pushing the data bus of the Falcon030 too hard. That's why you get less distortion/flicker when switching to the 40MHz oscillator as it will make the video chip use less of the bus bandwidth. Why this happens in Videlity and not in BlowUp ...

Hi Daniel, Here's the result of last night's testing with Blowup, Videlity, MiNT 1.19 and NVDI 3.

I own the Videlity software, but it does not let me enable the external clock when used with the Blow-Up hardware. Can you please send me the version you have? The random horizontal lines that you see, are those black and thin? Do they appear regardless of what oscillator you use (40/50 MHz)? You s...

Spent a good few hours yesterday tweaking the best resolution I could get without pixel size distortion on my bog standard 1920x1080 monitor with initially the 50 and then the 40MHz xtal (as mine's a stock Falcon). Unfortunately when I booted into Mint afterwards Xaaes went mad and couldn't initiali...

Re: Mac OSX-Atari floppy problems

It's nothing to do with Windows, it's Virtualbox you need to configure to pass the USB device through to the virtual machine. There'll be a suitable symbol at the bottom and you might need to install the extra virtualbox tools in your windows client to get it to work anyway. Without wishing to be ru...

Re: Mac OSX-Atari floppy problems

If it's mounted (ie. in use) in OSX, it's not available to VB.

My VB memories are a bit hazy, but I think you can assign USB peripherals to the client OSs the same as qemu and VMWare.

Re: VGA adapter with Blow Up and VGA/RGB switch

Received mine today, many thanks.

Seems to work well although I'm trying to get my head around the Blow Up config program having worked with Videlity and Videl Inside before: it's a tad less forgiving.

Re: FPU socket failure?

Hi again guys. Quick update. I tried the cable tie and haven't had any joy. I suspect the socket itself is too badly damaged with a crack running right past a pin.

Re: FPU socket failure?

Ha! Would you believe cable ties were actually the last thing I tried?

I thought I was flying a bit of a kite there. If it's a known technique I might give it another try. Thanks.

In the event that doesn't work, I presume it's heat guns and solder paste syringes?

Thanks,
