Re: HDD Patition >2GB - How?

What is the problem with HD-Driver? I've used it since 1997, it has served me well. I have never not been able to partition a drive the way I wanted it, and HD-Driver has been the only driver that has worked nearly perfectly on all my machines from the humble MSTE with IDE-interface, via a Falcon/A...

Re: EasyMint Install Problem

I'm trying to install EasyMint on my Falcon. It installed fine up to when it says system will reboot. When the system reboots I get about 10 bombs or so on screen, then back to TOS desktop. I say about 10 but not too sure as it goes too fast for me to count them. You didn't tell us where you see th...

Incompatible IDE devices -- it is possible?

Hi, I've got strange problem and I'm not sure if I'm crazy or it's known issue and period. I have 3 IDE devices -- one 2.5" HDD, one 3.5" CF/SD/MMC/SM reader and one 3.5" HDD. I want to connect two of these devices to IDE in Falcon, however, I found strange problem: 1. When I connect ...

Re: form_alert() crashes

oh, i see some confusion here. 1. Yes, you can call form_alert() in some AESes without appl_init() but you shouldn't (as other noted). Especially XaAES is very sensitive on that. 2. AES in supervisor is forbidden, officially / explicitly :) -- it can be found in Atari Compendium for example. 3. Mixi...

Dear Atari users, once again, we have some nice stuff for our beloved machines. We've got tired by fixing old Atari mices, "spamming" recent Atari dealers / hardware makers if they really are out of stock with Atari mices and/or converters for connecting some recent (PS/2, USB) ones. Fortu...

Re: Falcon: using ST palette in non-ST resolutions

s it possible at all to use the ST palette on a non-ST compatible resolution? No, that is not possible! It very depends on what do you mean under "ST compatible resolution". If it's ST-Low/Mid/High, then it's perfectly possible. If you mean not using ST compatibility flag in Videl, then n...

I think you're right, Videl don't load any data from ST-RAM where borders are present.

Re: Slowdown in higher vid. modes

I second Hans, still no idea what is it :) And about your idea -- hm, it looks nice but practically there's no use for it. Falcon chipset needs to preserve some ratios, i.e. when you clock DSP at 50 MHz and CPU at 20, 90% of falcon demos will stop to work. Phantom & co have the reason why they u...

Re: Slowdown in higher vid. modes

Does increasing the clock to the Videl help with the 'slowdown' in higher resolutions/colours or you just need a bus speeder? Or even a seperate graphics card. Are these still available for the falcon? On the contrary, it could have even opposite effect -- with increased videl clock you will probab...

Looking at the previous thread, this is definitely HARDWARE problem. FreeMiNT is quite stable, I use Teradesk + XaAES + Qed etc with memory protection with no problems.
