Re: Atari file system support for Linux ?

Hi Eero, I've tested the tool with other hardware - everything seemed okay. Obviously the SD card reader in my notebook is supported weakly under linux. Ok, so the driver is using some really slow mode for accessing the card, or it's just written in very inefficient way. That can happen for Linux s...

Re: Atari file system support for Linux ?

Writes cannot be cached like reads can. They could be buffered by kernel, but that would mean that writes haven't been pushed to card when the write command has finished. I.e. if you would eject the card, the data wouldn't be there, although file system might show it. How do you do the "raw&quo...

Re: Amikit style blob/OS for Atari?

Actually when I attempted VanillaMiNT on my TT it just crashed on start up. Or maybe I was trying it in Hatari first. MiNT will crash with Hatari TT emulation. To use MiNT with Hatari TT emulation, you need one-liner patch to disable bus errors from accessing SCC regs which aren't yet implemented b...

When you say that tool takes less time on Windows, is it to this same MMC card, and to same partition on it? (MMCs may have some faster flash at beginning which is optimized for FAT file systems.) And do you have same amount of free space in both cases before doing the test? Flash media does wear-le...

Re: How to get Hatari working on High Sierra ? (OSX)

That just hard-codes a different value, i.e. it would break things for others. A reasonable patch would detect the controller and set controller specific values.

When override is used without GEMDOS HD being C:, Hatari cannot just override suitable parts of the existing INF, it has to use Hatari default INF file (there are separate o...

Re: Memory snapshots

It meas that IPF floppy disk information in the memory snapshot is incompatible with your Hatari version, so Hatari will skip restoring that data.

Most likely it's produced with a Hatari version that used an earlier version of the external IPF/Caps library.

Re: Upscaling recorded videos

Yes, both BMP and PNG are lossless compression methods. However, PNG compression is very heavy at highest compression level (which is the default), and can cause Hatari to skip frames if automatic frame skipping is enabled (it's enabled by default). If BMP takes too much space, one can try telling H...

Re: Hatari unusable with trackpad in fullscreen mode (Hatari v2.0.0 and SDL 2 on Linux)

Difference to X cursor sounds weird. Hatari uses relative mouse events reported by SDL (SDL provides also absolute mouse co-ordinates, and while those would help with some cases, they could be worse for others, and would be harder to handle in Hatari). Only thing that I think could explain the discr...

Regarding MMU support in emulators...

Aranym emulates 040 and its (simpler) MMU.

While latest Hatari can emulate those, it can emulate also 030, its MMU and instruction & data cache.
