Re: Falcon Tower case anyone?

I stopped using the metal shielding for so long I do not remember when. 1st happened to my STFM when i had TOS and memory mods on it (piggy back ROMS to 2 level high). So when my low profile memory module for the falcon 14MB board was replaced by normal memory module, I had that metal shielding off ...

Re: Falcon IDE Ribbon Cable 40/80?

So sorry , do you mean the IDE on the CTPCI ?
I used a 40 wire cable for that. It does not matter really as it does not do UDMA mode anyway.

Re: Falcon IDE Ribbon Cable 40/80?

If you are connecting the internal IDE on the Falcon mobo, there is no difference between the 40-wire or 80-wire cable, just make sure your adapter is aligned correctly. If I am not mistaken, the rows may be swapped.
I would just be safe and use a normal 44-wire cable instead.

Re: After nearly 20 years, will anyone crack Cubase Audio 2.06?

I have been off my Atari for about 5 years now... Not through choice, but because I have been involved in a massive accident that has left me almost completely paralysed, and yet, after being told I will never walk again, 3 months ago was the last time I used my wheelchair...

Re: Bad Flash on my Firebee

Like the one for CT63 on the wiki here?
It tells you when to power on/off, have it on 030 or 060 mode, where & what to click etc.

for this task, i would keep mint at pole's length.

That is one nice nvdi 5 api.... just about the only thing i like about it.
it does automatic colour depth conversion as well but then I do not like being tied down by it.

Re: Atari Themed Clock face - chimes, alarms and mouse fix

i will need to look at the code to see it. i also quickly looked up nvdi 5 vr_transfer_bits() call. it has a transparent mode which it explain as if ( src != bg_col ) dst = src; but doing this will tie down the program to nvdi 5 only. And as I found... nvdi 5 breaks some stuff... well mostly printin...

Re: Atari Themed Clock face - chimes, alarms and mouse fix

Ha ha... yeah smart indeed.
I can't even wrap my head reducing a 24-bit RGB to a 3-bit planar graphics.

Thanks for explaining... will try it and see if it works for me.

I think the nvdi new raster function will be able to do it as well, as it is more powerful than the ROM version.
