Re: Falcon DSP mp2 replay frequency

The code generated by screens of pain works very well unless you’re doing something very wrong (obviously you need to call it from supervisor mode, for example).

Re: Beginning of very long journey

With the CosmosEx in mind, yes, an internal solution would be way better. AFAIK there was very limited use of the external connector -- many tower owners would transform it into the classic flat SCSI cable anyway. Perhaps there are still people having only one external SCSI device (or people willin...

Re: The Falcon's confusing history

Keep in mind that ALL of the ST/STE/TT/Falcon machines had basically the same system architecture as the original 520ST that's not exactly true. ST/STE/TT share the same concept of sharing bus ram (ST-RAM) - even cycles are assigned to the CPU, and odd cycles to the Shifter. Therefore regardless of...

Re: 1920x1200? Rotation?

Not in some easy way, no. In theory one could make a driver which allows for this, but that either means going through hell to reimplement everything or to sacrifice quite a bit of performance.

It would be awesome to have such a feature though, obviously.

No. You either need to use RGB or a 25MHz bus speeder.

One thing that would be nice is a patch somewhere (not sure where it needs to be) so that icons aren't white blocks in 32bit color at 1920x1080. I leave it at 16bit color due to this. I think this might need a patch in TOS or probably a newer desktop.rsc that I haven't seen (or is it deskicon.rsc, ...

Re: Beginning of very long journey

I agree with option C. It makes sense to migrate to the actual standard connector for VGA. The external clock line is needed by peripherals such as Screenblaster, but I guess another way to achieve that is to put an oscillator on board instead, preferably a programmable one.
