Re: ST emulators on Milan

So presumably aranym will run clean (GEM) programs in much the same way that the Milan will only run clean (GEM) progs.

Does Hatari run games well ? It might make a suitable way to run games that aren't so clean on the Milan and aranym.

Re: Milan maximum RAM

So if you want to replace your ram in the Milan, I recommend to remove all the simms from the Milan and just start with one f the new simms in the first socket. This simm must 16 MB or lager. Than remove it and test the next one and the next one and the next. When all simms are working correctly ju...

Milan maximum RAM

I currently have 144MB in the Milan which is made up of 64, 32, 32, 16. Does anyone have a Milan with more than this ? A few years ago I bought 4 large (128MB I think) SIMMS for the Milan, while I could still find them. I believe these are the largest ones that are supported according to the manual....

ST emulators on Milan

I asked this many years ago on the Mint list.

Do any of the ST emulators run on the Milan ?

I know this might not make sense but most ST games will not run on the Milan and it would be rather cool to have ST games running in an emulator.

Re: Very first computer

I used to use the Commodore Pet and Apple II that they had at school and then we got a Sinclair ZX81 and added the wobbly 16k RAM pack and later a separate keyboard.

Next was a Camputers Lynx and then the 520STfm

Did anyone go to the early computer shows at Belle Vue ?

Re: Coldfire V5

A lot of time has passed since their ARM offensive and they might be amenable to selling a small backstock of v5 if they have any. I don't know if the v5e made it into any printers but some of them can be had for £50-100 on ebay and the cpu could be extracted. BGA mounted ? [edit] It looks like the ...

Re: Coldfire V5

Has anyone asked NXP recently. If the Firebee team show them what they have done so far, they might be helpful with documentation.

It sounds like it is at least pin compatible with the v4.

Re: Apollo Team announces developing of Vampire standalone version to run as AMIGA and ATARI ST

I haven't tried MP again since I updated from Ming! to Thing!

Having a full replacement for the 68060 would be the best option, better than moving to a less capable although faster cpu.

Re: Apollo Team announces developing of Vampire standalone version to run as AMIGA and ATARI ST

I've never used MP on the Milan. I tried it but Thing desktop didn't work so I switched MP off again. Mint on the Milan is very stable even without it and few apps crash. The ones that do crash would probably crash in MP as well. I would consider a very fast FPGA "CPU" upgrade for the Mila...

Could a Coldfire adapter be made to replace the 060 adapter ? Patch the bootblock/TOS and the Milan joins the Firebee.

Re: 68040 40Mhz Upgrade on Milan

I do remember seeing that the 68060 can run at 4x bus speed so 20/80MHz would be achievable, although would it be any faster in the real world than 25/50 ?

The instructions on SourceForge for making zView show it isn't straightforward. The make file is set up for cross compiling as well.


Maybe someone could be persuaded to put it into a github travis build like the new Freemint stuff.
