Re: Aranym Network under OSX 10.12

Thorsten, I have spent considerable time using the latest snapshot and not one hiccup with the mouse grab or the bpf_helper login prompt. I thought I was going to be stuck with v0.9.16 forever. Thanks again for caring on these issues. :cheers:

Only thing I can find with google: is http://atariki.krap.pl/index.php/Magic_Screen
Hints at 2 versions of the card and uses the Imagine driver. Where to find this driver I have no clue.

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

I've seen those extra calls now that you mention it, but all I have is german nvdi 5 docs and no example code. I just wrote them off as not usable. Would be nice if NVDI could do that in one call. I forgot to look at toshyp. :lol: Maybe I try some tests sometime with that vdi call.

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. I don't think I e...

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

Using zView libraries is smart, no need to reinvent loading routines. You can see results here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGmxM1JjE1w The first blit is vrt_cpyfm() with a 1-plane mask followed by a second blit with vro_cpyfm(). My Boing demo is also using off screen bitmaps, but I could of don...

AFAIK, The VDI raster function that comes in the ROM does not do that.


Yes and no. It requires much more work. It takes 2 blits to achieve the transparent effect. vrt_cpyfm() and vro_cpyfm() are used. I did it in my Boing demo.

Re: Hades and 060 rev6

If you flex the motherboard you risk damage. Its the surface mounted sockets around the CPU that easily become cold soldered. I don't know how to overclock it, but you can email Medusa and try asking. Fredi will either tell you or advice against it. ;)

Fullscreen stopped working on all versions (old or new) soon as I updated to Sierra. Like I say, feature I can live without.

The mouse grab seems ok now, well done. Fullscreen option isn't working either since updating to Sierra. I suspect SDL issue as well, but that I can live without.

Re: Aranym Network under OSX 10.12

A few hours later and a crap ton of googling I have managed to install this missing library using MacPorts. Much to my surprise it installed into the correct path. I retested the snapshot and now I get the password prompt. It even accepts my password exactly once. I then logged into IRC with my STiK...

Re: Aranym Network under OSX 10.12

The old aranym doesn't have any issues when the mouse hits the edges, its perfectly confined as if its a monitor border, no flicker, no host cursor flashing etc. Nothing unusual happens. I always copy it to the hard drive before testing. I had to disable the network feature to test it, just as befor...

Re: Aranym Network under OSX 10.12

The mouse grab mostly works, but bumping the window edges causes some strange flicker. The host cursor appears just outside the edges. Sometimes they become out of sync or something and there's some offset that prevents the mouse from going where you want it to. It's sort of random. A snapshot isn't...

I'm already on the aranym list. I reported the problem a long time ago. Philipp Donzé might be able to shed more light on the bpf_helper problem.

Can you add the url https://github.com/mist-devel/mist-board/wiki to the MiST sub forum description? Similar to the Suska entry.

Re: Aranym Network under OSX 10.12

I do test as you suggested. If I comment out the [ETH0] section of my config the current snapshot starts right up. The weird random ungrabbing while the mouse was in the window area seems to be gone. However, it still totally ignores the fact that the config says GrabMouse = Yes.

Suska seems to be strictly Atari like hardware and Wolfgang has more fpga Atari's in the works, can you leave Suska as its own sub forum even though its low trafic? Actually its Wolfgang's Falcon clone I'm waiting on. ;)

Current OSX snapshot for me won't do anything. Never get prompt for password to allow network access, it just hangs. I have to force kill it. The password issues started with macOS Sierra.

I you are using aranym or hatari, etc, there are sections for those already. That's how I see it anyway.
