Re: Alternative to GPL license

However the GPL3 licence (by design) doesn't prevent a company for example building a replica ST, putting ijor's core in it (for which the source would be available), and then selling thousands of them without giving ijor any money or even acknowledgement that it is fundamental to their product (ot...

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

I guess that MiSTer does not output S-Video, therefore it would require a RGB > S-Video converter which might come at a rather high cost. But component output should work with a direct VGA > Component cable after setting the mister.ini accordingly? Never tried that out. ... I would really love to h...

I would have an extra VGA-Scart Cable that I could spare: Thanks for the offer, but I'm not at Europe and don't have any TV or monitor with Scart input either :( May be an Svideo or Component adapter can be useful. Somebody sell these? I haven't seen it mentioned in this thread, but I get a "r...

What's wrong with Terasic online store? It does accept Paypal. Shipping is more expensive? Customs?

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

Hope it will not be too complicated to get the 15khz via VGA implemented. It's not complicated, well, except perhaps for the issue that monochrome mode is not 15KHz. The main reason it's not implemented yet, is just because I have no 15KHz capable monitor and then I can't test it. At least not with...

Re: Save States for the cores

Saving states is extremely difficult, and as Sorgelig is saying, it is not something that you can do generically. Each core must be basically rewritten from scratch. Which in turns is a problem on itself because many cores have parts that come from different developers. Let alone that some core use ...

Re: FX CAST TOS versions

Don't MiST/Mister support mouting SD card partitions as hard disk images? MiST does, but MiSTer doesn't. The main difference comes from the fact that MiSTer runs full Linux, and it runs Linux directly from the SD card. Edit: MiSTer can use a second SD card connected at the optional I/O board, and t...

Re: FX CAST TOS versions

TOS v1.00 is quite buggy, it cannot e.g. deal reliably with hard disks / hard disk images. I think that is a bit of an overstatement. Yes, it has some bugs. But back at the day, I used TOS 1.0 wit a hard disk for several years without any problems. I had no other choice then. Granted, it was a very...

Re: FX CAST TOS versions

You believe that in the history of the Atari ST there was never a program ever written that makes calls to TOS2.06 specific routines (which obviously did not exist in TOS1.02). Please read back my post again. I didn't say exactly that, did i? I have disks that won't boot under TOS1.02, but do boot ...

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

There's nothing in TOS 2.06 it "requires". That may be the case, however, the original program (original disk) will not work on a machine with TOS2.06. Since I only work with original disks, that is all that matters to me. You are not "listening" (well, reading) to what we are t...

Ok, then this makes sense why there are compatibility problems during my testing. There are a LOT of games and utilities that require TOS2.04. In fact, most games I have tested do not boot, likely because of this. Jim, please stop spreading wrong information. In first place, TOS 2.04 (AFAIK) doesn'...

Re: DE-10 Super Expansion board

Technically, I could use 64MB RAM chips with this board, but the problem (according to Sorgelig) is the speed drops dramatically because you have refresh another 32MB of memory. I don't understand why it would be slower to refresh. Both 32MB and 64MB chips require 8K refresh cycles per 64ms. Refres...

So if the USB input has an 8ms lag, then the net effect at 60Hz would be exactly as I said: 50% no extra latency, 50% one full frame extra latency (this doesn't contradict a max latency of one frame+8ms). Sorry for bragging about this, I just find the subject of input lag so interesting. The net ef...

Re: controller ports: minimizing input lag

Less input lag is of course a good thing but a low latency HDMI scaler (in the works as I understand) will affect the perceived input lag much more than faster USB polling (or direct DB9 input). At the moment if using HDMI, the total lag is 0-8ms for the USB controls, 33.4ms (two frames) for HDMI s...
