Re: IDE not responding

How big is the new HD? HDX has serious limitations. You might want to try HD-Driver instead.

Only with TOS 1.04/1.06 or later. Windows does not like floppies formatted by earlier versions of TOS.

Re: Marijuana Mail 0.1.75

Found some time to test this on my Milan running MiNT/XaAES. Buttons are the same, buttons does not respond to mouse clicks, only keyboard navigation. Dropdown buttons/menus are fine. I also noticed that MJM's AV-buffer is allocated in private memory, which cause ST-Guide to be killed when you use t...

Re: Can't access certain drives in Mint, but ok in TOS?

It shouldn't be necessary. Much better to fix this in MiNT instead of using TOSFS which slows down access to all disks/partitions. Not sure why this happens, MiNT has no problems with byteswapped IDE-devices under EmuTOS.

Re: Can't access certain drives in Mint, but ok in TOS?

Why would TOSFS be needed in this case? Looks like something that should be fixed properly in MiNT instead of reverting to a solution that slows down disk access.

[I'm not anymore familar with these old compilers, but would assume as long as you gcc-compile with -mshort, structure alignment should be the same.

Where can I find details about gcc structure alignment? I'm trying to access structs in gcc-compiled code (gcc 2.95) from PureC, and clearly PureC and gcc does not align structure members the same way :D

Re: Seltos vs Physical Roms

The MonSTer is installed on top of the CPU, not on the MegaBus. Yes, you *can* do that via an adapter but you don't *have* to. As for IDE, the MonSTer has 44 pin IDE connectors which is the same as on laptop IDE drives. Just connect them with a 44 pin cable. 44 pin IDE drives are powered via the IDE...

You can have two separate variables, one normal int that you use for logic (e.g. bonus life when achieving a certain score) and one BCD used for display. Just increment both at the same time.

What about using the BCD instructions? No need to convert except for simple mask and shift.

Re: Case for Nova Graphics card

Not exactly what you're asking for, but if you replace the PSU with a PicoPSU you can install the graphics card internally. As a bonus you'll get more stable voltages and no more voltage drop when accessing the floppy drive.
