Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

Yep, if you want to see what kind of idiot I was and what damage I had caused... viewtopic.php?f=27&t=19368&p=282899& ;) But the Falcon lives, currently at Jookie's place (how ironic -- he had fixed it for me!), to this very day!

Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

I think most of us went through similar lesson(s), don't worry. ;)

Yes, you should get a booting Falcon under specified conditions.

Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

Man, just take the working NVRAM chip from the other Falcon and you immediately know whether you have done something wrong or whether the chip is bad... I really don't get why do you start with the most complicated procedures first. :) EDIT: Oh wait. You seem to have soldered the NVRAM chip without ...

Hey Thothy, would you mind posting the binary here as well, after six years. ;-) I can't seem to find any version later than 1.00.

Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

Not shorts are the concern but burned PCB holes from inside if you didn't do it properly. You can't see that with a magnifying glass.

Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

Well, you can always try to remove the Dallas chip, I have verified that Falcon is able to boot without it. ;-) Or take the chip from another Falcon and verify you haven't damaged the PCB.

Hades with working sound wanted

Hey guys, is there someone with a Hades which has sound working? Before I loose my energy for this, I'd like to verify my sound routines are working there as well (as we have recently verified and debugged it on the Milan).

Ideally with a 060, as 040 Milans seem to be too slow for the job!

I think you're counting in wrong order. :) Bit 0 = most right one, bit 31 = most left one. So in your case, the resolution in 256 colours mean your mode must end with ...011, not begin.

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

I was surprised the money needed to fund volume 2 increased in comparison to volume 1, despite lesser goodies. You can thank to people like Gryzor for that: This time the costs are also rising high, because I need to pay a translator and investigate more into the outcome of the language quality. Ri...

Re: Guess whats cooking today #1

Awesome. :) Apart from the obvious features (complete with metal case!), can you make some comparison to Exxos's PSU? I don't mean it as a flamebait of course, I just don't know a thing about PSUs so it's hard to decide what are pros and cons of each.

Re: Bad Mood : Falcon030 'Doom'

ct60tos.bin is as standalone as it gets. ;-) It's a merge between the classic 512k image and additional stuff. So there are calls to the 'other half', you can't just dissect it.

I am using v4.5 (or something like that). gdb seems to be working on it fine for me.... To what extent? It's not like gdb doesn't work at all with newer GCCs, it's just... buggy. For instance you set a breakpoint and it's missed. Or you are tracing code and it suddenly jumps etc. So if your gcc 4.5...
