Re: Burning Falcon ROMs

The standard 44-pin plcc adapters for the TL866 all around eBay and such needs some soldering to get them working. As you pointed out 4 pins are not connected. So you need connecting pins 12 and 13 together and pins 33 and 34 on the plcc socket. DoG, Many thanks. That's really handy to have ahead o...

Re: Burning Falcon ROMs

Hi BW, The 27C4096 is on list of device, but only the DIP 40 Format. Normal the ZIF support is 40 Pin. Problably works but you neded to create 'special' adaptor. Thanks Olivier Olivier, Thanks for checking this out. That's promising. A lot of these ship with all sorts of adapters, including a 44-pi...

Burning Falcon ROMs

Hi guys, Has anyone had any luck trying to write Falcon 44-pin PLCC ROMs with one of the low cost Chinese 42-pin+adapter burners? One like the TL866-2, perhaps? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TL866II-Plus-Universal-Programmer-FLASH-Adapters-Socket-EPROM-BIOS-AVR-MCU-PIC/293134511951 (ebay item id 293134...

Re: Xbtimer(), Mfpint() and interrupt handlers

Oh crap -- I'm such a n00b! Is there a good reference for the above? Whilst my example was with timer-A, my program is intending to use the BUSY line (interrupt 0). I assume the bitmask passed to 0xFFFFFA0F must be amended accordingly? BW. Going to have a quick stab at this from Wild-Arsed-Guessery...

Oh crap -- I'm such a n00b! Thanks, guys. I hadn't understood that line so thought it was part of Mikro's wider program. I had assumed since there were a C functions to set up the interrupts, there would be C functions to service them too! Is there a good reference for the above? Whilst my example w...

Re: Xbtimer(), Mfpint() and interrupt handlers

- try the interrupt keyword on the function. That should work with GCC, but not other compilers. Its purpose is to tell the compiler that this function must preserve all registers. This definitely has to work: https://sourceforge.net/p/mxplay/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/plugins/audio/xmp/xmp.c#l209. I spe...

Re: Xbtimer(), Mfpint() and interrupt handlers

Badwolf, I think you have messed something up -- as you can see in my example, I'm using Timer A the same way you do and it works. Maybe you just need to add the attribute again, which is missing in your example. Thanks guys, I probably did. After banging my head on it for a couple of days I've thr...

Xbtimer(), Mfpint() and interrupt handlers

Good evening all, I've been trying to work on a hardware project using the BUSY interrupt on the printer port, but everywhere I turn with handling interrupts in C leads me to bomb-tastic experience on real hardware. I've been trying to use Mfpint() to set up the BUSY monitor and call a simple counte...

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...

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.

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

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 ...
