Re: Replacing CT60 boot logo with Didier's tools

Sure. I don't remember what exactly you have to do but it surely works at some level. :) Here's a few pictures by a fellow CT60 fan, back from the 00s, TGA+HEX files.

Re: What would a modern TOS look like today?

Yeah, I'm with Joska. If Atari somehow survived the 90s, they would most likely ended up doing what they were always doing - the least expensive manufacturing, meaning some Apple-like PCs with Windows or maybe some home cooked Linux derivate (similar to what, say, Dell is doing these days), maybe bu...

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 tried to use "regparm" like this: void __attribute__((regparm(2))) SetFullPalette(int palette, voi...

Re: CT60 memory test strangeness

This might be a deeper hardware problem - CPU type is usually recognised by catching an exception, for instance FreeMiNT uses "move.w ccr,dx" to distinguish between 68000 and 68010 and accessing the CACR (cache) register to distinguish between 68010 and 68020+.

Re: CTPCI and Demos

Actually, on most modern monitors you can enable/disable this auto option - but it does more harm than good if you have a stable (albeit blank) picture on one input and resolution switching (which causes a short "break") on the other input - in that case it would switch inputs even if you ...

No, this looks like a PowerUp2-like card then. Phantom accelerates the CPU to 25 MHz, same as the bus and FPU.

Re: CTPCI and Demos

GEMDemo surely works. ;-) In theory, if the demo uses only XBIOS calls to handle all framebuffer operations (setting resolution, palette, video ram, ...) it should work. You can try SDL-based games like Patrice Mandin's Doom port, it should work even in fullscreen (i.e. not GEM window).

Re: Bus error

Well, you should have posted the whole code, now it's just guess work. What Thorsten says that if the result from get_pixel() is used somewhere (say, as an index), it can easily return bogus values. So it depends what do you do with the result.

I don't know why but this is the first time I hear that GT can actually import S3M modules, interesting. I always thought it can play only its own format.

Btw, for 040+ machines you can use mxPlay for all sorts of module formats.

It's far below 30 Hz refresh rate which is OK for desktop. Accidentally, desktop is the only place where such high resolutions make sense. :)

Re: Atari Falcon keyboard not responding

That can't be related. What is possible though is that you made a short circuit somewhere. I once "burned" a trace on PCB between the keyboard and the ACIA so I had to make a custom wire between them.

Anyway, you need at least a multimeter device to find out what's going on there.

This probably rules out the CT6x, since it needs the original 030 to be present during boot (god knows why). I'll speculate here and say it is because R.
