Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

Is that really an issue? I just correct the aspect ratio using an option in the HDMI display's built in menu.

Re: CT63 temperature in F030 mode

It is unlikely that F030 mode disables the clocks, or applies the reset to the 060 and so it is likely that it consumes the same power and produces the same heat as it would in 060 mode at IDLE

Re: An attic find.

The mouse/joystick ports take a hammering and can get loose joints. A quick reflow fixes them 99% of the time. Invest in a set of port extenders

Re: Iceblox Plus

Thanks for all your hard work bringing a new title to the Atari ST platform

If you have any time I'd really like to read about the development, Why the Atari ST? What tools did you use? Language program in STOS? C? ASM? Any libraries (e.g. AGT) How long did it take etc. Very interesting.

Re: Recommended hardware tweaks/mods for an Atari STe

I wouldn't bother with an external Gotek. Some games do not like to boot from drive B. Lots and lots of games (and demos) have been filed, patched and now have run from hard drive support (once you get a CosmosEx or UltraSatan) Take a look at http://atari.8bitchip.info/fromhd2.php and http://d-bug.m...

I thought that LGPL was the licence to use if you were considering future commercial licensing?

Re: SNES Core WIP

The developer is the real deal. I've followed his work for many years. He started out with an FPGA of the sound chip. I contacted him on Twitter and brought MiSTer to his attention about a year ago and offered him an FPGA setup but never sent it to him. Looks like he got one. http://pgate1.at-ninja....

From what I understand, you cannot have the boot drive readable by your PC computer. It's what everyone wants, a single SD/CF card that can be bootable on the Falcon and readable on the PC, but I never managed to get that working, and I have been told it's not achievable. I only have one drive. I p...

The author could encrypt the HDL using the Quartus key so it can still be synthesized but no-one could edit it? That is possible but it's not so easy.
