Re: Sparrow inspection

Can you post photos with serial number on the mother board? (near the fan) The first Sparrow looks pretty similar to mine (but you've got the original red/yellow keyboard, jelous!!! :)), how the case looks like? I don't have any sticker/label where the usual "Atari Falcon" one is, just an empty spac...

Re: Programming VGA resolutions (Atari TT)

A bit of trivia, Atari800 (the emulator) uses direct memory blitting on NOVA cards, too: https://github.com/atari800/atari800/blob/master/src/falcon/main.c#L744 As mfro says, there's nothing more to know about it, just make sure you use the right copy routine for given bit depth.

I meant for freemint only, of course. Both bootable and CPU builds would benefit from it.

Re: Atari Computers serial numbers database (and peripherals)

Btw, for the past few years I have been updating https://mikrosk.github.io/clockpatch/history.html with any new discovery. Today, thanks to one Atari user who has contacted me, we have reached ~21,500 units (solely produced by Atari, not C-Lab). So the 20,000 units claim is definitely true (I don't ...

There are no "other routines", that's the reason why you have to use NVDI to avoid the Blitter ones.

Re: Atari Falcon 030 (German) Serial No. 7 (Mouse, Manual + Monitor Adaptor) WORKING

What a BS. It's not even motherboard's s/n ending with 1007 (so it's not even "no. 7") and even that case s/n is from normal '93 production batch. Absolutely nothing unique about this one except its nice condition.

Re: How to install FreeMiNT - simple step by step guide

As those questions are popping up everywhere - yes, we are aware and yes, we plan to fix it. But it's a super boring task, so have patience. I'm going to put some warning placeholder until then.

On the positive side, I'm glad so many people are interested in FreeMiNT these days. ;-)

Re: FPU emulator

Christian - thank you for such a great explanation, much appreciated.

I actually do have a Mega STE + 68881 (as well as Mega STE + 68882) so I'll give it a try in near future but most likely I will have to recompile some open source application, perhaps some benchmark to make it interesting.

Re: FPU emulator

Is that really true about 68882? I thought it's 100% software compatible, it has only a different stack frame size or so. Btw I find usefullness of this program very questionable, any FPU application for TT/Falcon would most likely use 030 code as well, therefore unable to run it on memory-mapped FP...

AdamK: BeST sells US and EU type mylars: http://www.best-electronics-ca.com/tt030.htm so I guess that could be the key difference?

Re: Is there a relatively quick way to get bash and dd on my Falcon?

There used to be something pretty close to what are you looking for: https://freemint.github.io/#snapshots but bintray shut down recently so we have to wait until the snapshots are migrated to a new place.

In the meantime, someone could post you a 020+ archive here.
