Re: Scumvm

I tried V2.0.0 on my Milan at the weekend. It is quicker and smoother and I switched to 3x rendering. Still no sound though.

My hardware skills don't stretch that far.

I am not 100% exactly what flavour of 68060 I have in the Milan.

Re: ScummVM sound on Milan

ScummVM: I will have to check the version. It runs ok on the 060 with Monkey Island and Tentacle but the mouse click response seems a bit slower than I remember. PmDoom: I think is version 0.59. I tried both mint_xbois and mint_gsxb (with and without gsxb running from AUTO) but it will not start, sa...

Re: 68040 40Mhz Upgrade on Milan

It's been a very long time since I flashed the rom.

I do know it will boot the 040 even if it has been flashed with the 060 version. I was able to do a lot of tests switching cpu's without having to re-flash all the time.

I had a look at the 060 adapter in my Milan. Hard to read but the ic is a 74F157AD.

Re: Clock speed switch on Milan

There is one odd thing about the "turbo" switch, I had to restart after about an hour and the boot said 58MHz. When I rebooted from cold the following day it was back to 60MHz but again once warm it said 58MHz. I wonder if the the extra cable length is causing clock frequency drift or high...

Re: Clock speed switch on Milan

I did try PC Ditto [edit: it was SoftPC not PC Ditto] about 20 years ago but never got it working.

Someone did release another PC emulator a couple of years ago. It worked but the key mapping was wrong so I had no idea what I was typing.

Re: Clock speed switch on Milan

I think the suggestion was to replace an ic with the faster 74FTC157 version. If you can find one.

Re: Milan ATI

It could be compressed but 2:1 might be a bit much.

It did occur to me that I have never tested this card in a PC so I am assuming it works at all.

Re: Milan ATI

With my Milan in 60MHz I gave the Radeon card another go but after 5 minutes no screen display and the monitor says there is no input. :-(

I assume from this that the Radeon is not starting.

Re: Clock speed switch on Milan

I got the 12" ribbon cable, fitted it and jumpered the ends to see how the Milan reacted. It worked so I added a bit of Vero board, some dodgy soldering and a dpdt switch. Now I can set it to 30/60 MHz most of the time and easily switch to 25/50 before booting to do scanning. Now I just need to...

Re: VISION 4.1a is out!

Hi Peter, for infill, I think it is a limitation of the v_contourfill API which may even crash on some VDI because of last parameter set to -1 For button slow to respond, I did not see a difference with other applications; could you elaborate? If I click on a Button (OK) as I normally would, nothin...

Re: rsync in SpareMINT

This is a known issue with rsync on mint. I get the feeling it has completed the job, it just never exits. That's correct. Alan Hourihane sent me a fixed binary years ago where this problem was solved, but it doesn't look like the patch has been distributed. The SpareMiNT rsync is still non-functio...

Re: VISION 4.1a is out!

I have tried Vision before on the Milan with Minat/XaAES and it had issues. I just tried the new release.

1. The infill painting doesn't work, it just adds a single pixel horizontal line.
2. The button is dialogue boxes are a bit slow to respond, requiring a press and hold to get them to work.

Re: Clock speed switch on Milan

I plan to use a 6-pin IDC plug and ribbon cable a bit like this http://www.hobbytronics.co.uk/idc-ribbon-cable-12

What I might do is leave the jumper on pin 1 and put the cable on pins 2 and 3

One switch position will connect pins 2 and the other will connect pins 3.

Re: Clock speed switch on Milan

I had a look in my junk box and found a DPDT slide switch that might fit in the spare D Connector slot in the case.

It will need about 8-10 inches of wire to reach the jumpers. Would this be too long ?

Clock speed switch on Milan

Inside the Milan there are jumpers to set the clock speed. Mine is set to 25MHz. I don't use 30MHz because of the scsi scanner. It would nice to be able to quickly switch to 30 when I'm not using the scanner. Could a switch be added so that it can be easily changed before booting ? For 25MHz, jumper...
