The Falcon030 3-in-1 monitor adapter now available in exxos store

Postby dhedberg » Fri Jul 06, 2018 8:58 pm

The 3-in-1 monitor adapter for the Falcon030 is now available in exxos store.
https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/storenew/#0146

This adapter plugs into the monitor port and makes it possible to connect monitors using a standard VGA cable.
It also features a switch for changing between RGB and VGA video modes, allowing users with multi-sync monitors to take advantage of all video modes of the Falcon030. Finally, the adapter provides a higher frequency pixel clock signal to the Falcon030 video chip, making it possible to achieve higher screen resolutions. The adapter is compatible with the Blow-Up software and Videlity software (used to configure the enhanced video modes).

I purchases one and it's great. I can get TOS to display 1024x768, but I'm unable to make it work under MINT and XaAES - XaAES throws an invalid screen-type: 1023, I have the video = 26 in the xaaes.cnf file - what's the magic to make this work with XaAES. Thanks!

I'm not a MiNT user but people have reported successfully getting BlowUp to work with MiNT and MyAES. With XaAES multiple users were reporting issues and I don't know if anyone eventually got it to work. If you don't want to switch to MyAES, you can try another software, such as Videlity and see if it works better with XaAES.
