Re: MilanBlaster problems

Neurotoxic: thanks mate! So yes, your Milan Blaster driver seems to be installed properly.

I guess Mark_G & joska will appreciate some information how did you manage to do that as they are both missing the fifth bit in the _SND cookie.

Neurotoxic: run a tool like SysInfo (https://sites.google.com/site/stnonesse ... nf502e.zip) and look for "_SND" cookie. Just report the value set there. :)

Gryzor, you're trying so hard that you have managed to get lost in your own arguments. ;-) You have entered the discussion about people not expressing true opinions about bad products.

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.

Re: gcc 7.1 for the ST series

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...

Re: REminiscence flashback for falcon

MilanBlaster is IIRC slightly different from both Falcon XBIOS and GSXB. I believe GSXB attempts to support/implement MilanBlaster features, but maybe not close enough? What a mess. So if I understand that correctly, we have: ⋅  MilanBlaster and its own XBIOS extension claiming to be Falc...

Re: gcc 7.1 for the ST series

wongck: you can use sparemint libraries (although I really wouldn't recommend that, 10+ years old now). gdb refuses to play nice since gcc 4.x so if you really, really want to debug stuff natively, gdb 2.95 + sparemint gdb is the only way I'm afraid. :-( Maybe you can use newer gdb but the old gcc i...

Re: REminiscence flashback for falcon

My guess would be that the biggest bottle neck is actually the sound. The intro is clear, a lot of redraws, what is not very stock Falcon friendly (chunky to planar...). But the game itself, it it doesn't redraw the whole screen each frame, should be pretty easy to get running on stock Falcon. EDIT:...

Re: The Falcon's confusing history

As found on the Facebook, it seems this "real" TT-based Falcon was supposed to have support for CD-I and get released in mid-1992: 21740332_10214493637717384_2264448479430442212_n.jpg 21740101_10214493637757385_6170953992080449354_n.jpg Perhaps somewhere around 1992 they realised that CD-I...

Re: [SOLVED] What IPL is a TRAP exception?

Thorsten: I was pretty close to what you have described but then I realised how pointless it is and went with classic clock() instead (which internally uses get_sysvar(0x4ba) which in turn uses Super() or Ssytem(), depending on the OS).

(the original idea was to save as many trap calls as possible)

Re: [SOLVED] What IPL is a TRAP exception?

OK, I'm an idiot. $4ba = 1210. 1210 / 4 = 302.5, i.e. I can't use Setexc! In reality I'm reading content of 302*4 = $4b8, i.e. unused/undocumented variable.

I should have known better, right? Sigh.

Re: What IPL is a TRAP exception?

Btw 'A Hitchhiker's guide to the BIOS' lists _hz_200 as $4bc. First I though "Heureka, this is it!" but obviously, it is not. It's really $4ba.

[SOLVED] What IPL is a TRAP exception?

I feel rather dumb but can't help myself. I have a loop with calling Setexc(0x4ba, -1). For instance I want to wait four 200 Hz ticks. However sometimes (not always but definitely very often, like in 80% of cases) whole loop just locks down. So instead of having one quick call where I wait for one t...
