Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

The VCC pin is pin 24 of the Dallas chip. The piggy back IC is a clock buffer patch. You can verify that it is properly wired/installed on Exxos page: https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/falcpatch/index.htm The installation looks a bit shaky on the picture. Whether or not the loose wire has damag...

Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

Have you soldered a socket in place and popped the NVRAM back again? I read that you had removed it after initial testing? I don't think the Falcon will boot with the NVRAM chip removed. Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong. When you solder the socket in place, make sure the solder flows well. It...

With just a few hours left to go, we're only about 650 EUR short to reach the goal. Only ~15 more backers needed!

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

Silly me: the reason why it doesn't work on the Atari Falcon isn't due to the exception stack frame routines (in fact it was only a guess). http://www.atomic-skulls.de/temp/mmu_bart_simpson.jpg Ah! :-) This was an easy fix and... well, you know what that means!? ;) It's time for everyone to bring o...

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

I do remember that we had sprite routines using the blitter, but I also remember implementing sprite routines using the CPU. I think we eventually used the blitter for most (all?) sprites though. We had lots of animations and wanted everything to work on 4 MB so we could not afford using preshifted ...

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

Regardless if you choose 8 or 4 bitplanes, you'll end up blitting/updating the parallax background each frame as you''ll hardscroll the foreground.
You should have enough time to do 5 + 3 bitplanes. We did 6 + 2 bitplanes in Willie's Adventures.

Thanks! What did they change in NVDI 5, making it impossible for you to render text? Did they remove something?

Re: Demozoo "cloned" ??

What's the intention of the clone? Do they access the same databases or did they just mirror the databases at the time of their launch? I noticed that demozoo has slightly more data than bof, so I assume they just mirrored the databases? Seems just plain odd to me. I guess if their intention would b...

Re: The Atari ST and the Creative People vol. 2 (Campaign till 21th Oct.)

How are the conditions different/better on Indiegogo?
Also noticed that the the project goal will be 30% lower and a 12–18 % discount on all pledges will be introduced in this new campaign. How does that affect the project and the book? I assume that you'll need to cut down on something?

I'm pretty sure that only the Mega ST keyboards have cables with connectors on both ends. On the Mega STe and TT keyboards the cable is not detachable on the keyboard side.

Yes! Thank you Thothy! That 'resetting to 16MHz behavior' has driven me almost crazy sometimes! Makes sense though, but I think your fix implements the behavior that most people really want/expect.
