Re: Patch to fix files with double dots when converting with atari-convert-dir.py

For me that's also the most common use-case, but I also want it to support the two (more rare) cases I listed. That script was very useful for getting programs (ScummVM / OpenTTD) working with TOS. First I ran the program under GEMDOS HD emulation and checked that things worked there, then I changed...

Re: VISION 4.5a is out!

Problem with this routine is that it won't return support for a classic Falcon as AES is 3.30. I have added test for AES version >= 3.30 if Falcon is detected.

Re: Going beyond standard resolutions in Hatari?

Hatari has some limits on what sizes can be used. They're set based on what different TOS versions and what "commonly used" GEM programs work with. Test before trusting GEM programs to work in VDI mode without crashing with your unsaved data. Some of them can do unsafe assumption about scr...

Re: Patch to fix files with double dots when converting with atari-convert-dir.py

GEMDOS HD does that because most TOS programs wouldn't work with more dots in the file name, and '+' is valid file name character in TOS. It uses something in place of invalid characters so that those modified file names can be better mapped back to the host file names. However, atari-convert-dir.py...

Re: VISION 4.5a is out!

Why do you need appl_getinfo()? appl_init() should already tell you the AES version, in all TOS versions. (Besides, AFAIK all TOS functions return the function number if TOS didn't recognize the function. I assume the same applies also to AES functions like appl_getinfo(). If yes, you could also che...

Re: VISION 4.5a is out!

@eero: you're right, if it is a Falcon, AES popup usage is forced. However it is on purpose as regular Falcon AES version is 0x0330 and so VISION can't rely on appl_getinfo to know about popup features. I could remove this force but in this case, regular Falcon will lose AES popup support... Accord...

Re: GCC 7.3.0 for m68k / m68020-60 / m5475 (ColdFire)

So I hope GCC 8.2 can do better, but I have lots of code written in assembly, and I just can't understand how I can bind it to GCC by specifying function parameters into specific register. I think you should still be able to use VASM as standalone assembler and link object files it produces with GC...

Re: VISION 4.5a is out!

Vision seems to work fine with latest EmuTOS, except on Falcon. On Falcon none of the popup menus work, they just give AES error dialog. It seems that Vision assumes Falcon to have AES version with new menu functions, without actually checking the available AES version. Maybe Vision could check AES ...

Re: Recommended hardware tweaks/mods for an Atari STe

Rather than tracker music, why not go for MIDI as you already have Notator? Especially with CRT monitors, it would have looked better with monochrome than color one due to larger resolution (640x400 vs 640x200) and higher refresh rate (71 vs 50/60).
