Re: 68040 40Mhz Upgrade on Milan

Thanks for your information. Unfortunately my not there registered there but I will have a look. And you could use the adapter right out of the box or did you had to do any modifications? No modifications whatsoever. The adapter doesn't do much, it doesn't contain any logic etc. It was produced fai...

Re: reducing the source file,removing empty lines etc

maybe size , or that's irrelevant? Remove all blank lines and comments, also make sure to keep variable names as short as possible - preferably single letters only. Avoid loops and consitionals at all cost, and make sure to write all your code as a single function. Function calls are generally bad ...

Yeah but that is VDI requiring "workstations" and whatever to be configured. My code is supposed to work with .TOS and .TTP programs for AUTO folder use. So VDI and AES calls are not really what I am looking for. But thanks for mentioning them. Environment variables LINES/ROWS and COLUMNS...

Re: [SOLVED] What IPL is a TRAP exception?

OK, I'm an idiot. $4ba = 1210. 1210 / 4 = 302.5, i.e. I can't use Setexc! In reality I'm reading content of 302*4 = $4b8, i.e. unused/undocumented variable. I should have known better, right? Sigh. Brainfart. Ssystem() does the trick, but then again you're stuck in the FreeMiNT domain in such case.

Re: 32bit TOS icons?

I wouldn't be mega-surprised if the TOS4 desktop does something funny. It's not a show-stopper, but I really expected it to work on NVDI.

Re: 32bit TOS icons?

Ah, funny. I don't remember the details, but I expected it to work on NVDI. Will have to look into it one day, but it's not a priority at the moment.

It works on Teradesk because it uses the VDI to do the conversion from consecutive planes -> native graphics. The built-in desktop doesn't.

Re: 32bit TOS icons?

What you maybe mean is displaying icons of 16 or 256 colors on a truecolor display. Theoretically, TOS 4.04 should be able to do that, and teradesk will use that functionality. For what i can tell, it does not have fallback routines if the AES does not support coloricons, and will use the monochrom...

Hey everyone, I've tried setting my desktop to 32bit colour and the icons turn into white boxes, these seem to work fine in every other bit depth I've tried. I am trying to think if this also happened with TeraDesk/MiNT as well, but I think it was fine. Does TOS4.04 (or the 1.03c that the CT60e use...

shoggoth: on the contrary, using the same screen as VDI uses is exactly what I need.

Re: Double buffering using OS calls

I bet you can access it with Setexc() or Ssystem()? This is actually quite clever. :) Using Setexc() for setting a system variable is quite a novel idea! (to me) In theory, one could do something as: Setexc(<screenpt vector>, new_physbase); // wait for VBL *and* new physbase to be set while (Setexc...

Re: Double buffering using OS calls

There's a system variable somewhere iirc which is fetched on VBL, perhaps it could be used instead (less overhead and unwanted side effects, perhaps). Yeah but then I'd need to be in Supervisor to fetch it. I can't use Supexec() to fetch it because FreeMiNT's way of doing Supexec() is super slow th...

Re: Double buffering using OS calls

I'm deeply struggling with a seemingly trivial issue: double buffering. I wanted to explore the possibility of not setting own VBL handler and use OS calls instead. This is on Falcon. Naturally, two choices comes into play: VsetScreen(log, phys, 3, resolution); and Vsync(); First I assumed that Vse...

Re: TT dual video output with GFX-card?

It does seem a real shame that the TT vga out is completely useless when using Nova, if it was usable as a 640x480 output it would be very handy. Dual-head operation in GEM is likely to be out of the question since this requires that both framebuffers line up in memory, but hardware-wise the TT VGA...

Re: TT dual video output with GFX-card?

I know Dal had setup his Cyrel to output VT52 from TT video out to one monitor while GFX card was connected to another monitor. Is this possible with other cards such as the Nova? At least in theory, yes. IIRC I wrote some half-generic console output driver for this once, I think LP has it. LP? :)
