Re: Editing a message

Not sure were you got that information from, but if you're referring to me then please note that I'm just a user on this forum and have no more influence on such decisions than anyone else. I also don't know anything about why this change was done.

Re: Editing a message

As a "news" feed Facebook works fine. But as a discussion forum it sucks immensely - no threads, no topic grouping, no quoting, search sucks, posts disappears, information gets lost... And yet the majority prefers it over proper discussion forums. Most people - Atarians included - never pa...

Re: C-compilers and the 040/060 FPU

Which are "all the others"? The usable C compilers for TOS: AHCC, PureC and Lattice C. And if i'm not wrong, GNU-C will also use the FPU instructions, even if compiling for 68040 only. The math-68881.h header file does not check for 040/060. -m68060 Generate output for a 68060. This is th...

Re: CT60e, Not measuring up.

I have the 160 watt pico. I bought it as I thought it would cope better and run cooler. But yes it is too tall for case. I wanted to design an adapter to make psu horizontal, but my skills don't go that far. It would require a 90' atx connector and pcb to move the plug :( It can be done much simple...

Re: C-compilers and the 040/060 FPU

You are right, only gcc supports 040/060 FPU. All the others generates 881/882 FPU code. Maybe this is fast enough, I just have to try I guess.

Oh, sorry, I clearly wasn't paying attention to what I was doing... Do you run NVDI as well, or just NovaVDI?

You must run EMULATOR.PRG before MiNT. This will redirect all screen output to the graphics card.

If you by "MiNT" mean XaAES, then you omit the VIDEO setting in xaaes.cnf and set the resolution with NovaVDI.

C-compilers and the 040/060 FPU

I'm working on a small project which would benefit greatly from the FPU. How is 040/060 FPU support in the various C compilers? I guess recent gcc has good support for it, but if possible I'd like to compile natively.

Re: Suggestions on upgrading my 1040 STE

If you have a monitor that handles 15KHz then the ubeswitch is your best choice IMO. ST2VGA is manually switched, while the ubeswitch can switch automatically depending on the selected resolution.

Re: STe - Bad DMA Chip

Not really, if the original fault (hard drive device corruption) is fixed and the machine exhibits no new side effects at all. That would be a satisfactory result for nearly anyone. I can't see the danger in replacing the "bad" DMA with the "good" DMA, since that's what Atari di...

It's a little less user friendly but 100% dumb proof. :) Actually, I think it's more user friendly because you don't have to make any compromises when it comes to drivers and partitioning.

Theoretically, you could also do the swapping on the PC side (be it by software or hardware) but I don't know any solution that would do that.
