Re: XBIOS 5

Hi, thread hijacker here. I don't want to put round things into square holes. I would like to do exactly what GEM does. i.e. close the VDI workstation and ask AES to make a new one, including loading ACC etc. The whole gimicky thingy. I don't want to keep my running programs and just change resoluti...

Re: Web browsing with CosmosEx?

I had the crazy idea to run the webbroser on the RaspberryPi, and transmit the graphics to the ST. Maybe just with a dumb program displaying stuff directly read from a linux file via ACSI in an endless loop.

Re: Error in CosmosEx communication!

I digged out the ST with CosmosEx again, even forgot about this problem, and samba share via wifi works, somehow. It's not really stable. Clicking on a floder starts like opening the folder in a window (zooming rectangle) but then nothing happens. So I guess the underlying sambe-via-wifi-from-linux ...

Re: XBIOS 5

Hi, I'm digging this up again. So there is nothing documented how GEM/TOS switches resolution when you click in the desktop dialog box to go from low to medium? It just jumps somewhere to restart AES. Now that's odd. 12 years later now: is there still nothing new on this? Do I need to find the jump ...

I have no idea what he does here. Shape zero, is just a ramp down. But it does not sound like that. Maybe that' his way to turn the channel off without producing nasty artefacts?

Re: Error in CosmosEx communication!

Additional info: I now stored the MSA file on an USB stick. That way the loading works correctly.
This looks like a samba share issue. I usually have no problems with samba mounts on linux.

Re: Can anyone explain how the ST determines how much RAM it has on startup?

Cool. Would be interesting to see the disassembly of the TOS code doing the memory configuration checking. If someone is able to dig this up that would be great.

Re: Can anyone explain how the ST determines how much RAM it has on startup?

I used a GAL instead of 74xx and it worked without problems in a 1040STFM with 2.06. This does not explain how the TOS was totally fine with 3MB, whereas this configuration is even not possible with the hardware. I did not need any extra software to tell TOS that 1MB is missing. Somehow it did that...

Re: Can anyone explain how the ST determines how much RAM it has on startup?

Ok, so it goes like this:
A 520ST+ with 2x512M
Upgraded to 2.5MB with the 2nd 512MB disabled and replaced by 2MB
Insertion of some simple TTL logic chip and the disabled 512MB become useable again

Tadaaa: 3MB ST
You could even buy that: http://stcarchiv.de/ai1995/06_ramext.php

Re: Resources for whoever is interested in porting 'DSOTS'

I have no idea how these files were made. They are simply there. I guess for the demo I saved as NEO and RST and imported that into the demo.

The links are unfortunately broken. Maybe copy thie parts inline here when sourceforge keeps changing things around. Because now I need this info, and can't find it. I'm on the quest to determine how it was possible to have 2.5M + 0.5M (via some 74xx) in my ST without any software to tell TOS it onl...

Re: Building HxCFloppyEmulator on Linux

This thread should feature a command line example how to convert an ST or MSA file to HFE.

I searched for this info here and only found my own thead how to build the software, but not how to use the command line.

Re: Keyboard jitter solved!

The moment I move the 60hz part out of the physical screen display, no distortion can be noticed anywhere. Probably because the VBL is masking this and a CRT fully resyncs to a new signal.
