Re: CTPCI and USB card

One more question: What type of ribbon cables do you use (CTPCI <--> PCI slot board)? I use short 40 wires cables (~15 cm), not 80 wires. Could this cause my problems? Perhaps a very valid one. As you can read here: http://powerphenix.com/ctpci/english/overview.htm ... Use of 2 standard IDE UDMA 10...

Go ahead Mark, do mirror it. In fact, I've just discovered exactly what you have mentioned -- your mirrors are much better updated than my private copies. So your effort has definitely paid off.

Huh? Can you elaborate? The github mintlib repository is automatically built after each commit so I'm pretty sure it does build.

I'm no expert on SOTB but why exactly would you port a game for machine having 32 colours of 4096 and insist of using resolution of 65536 colours? Wouldn't be more logical to choose a project which would fully utilise Falcons's graphics and sound capabilities? Anyway, I'm with EvilFranky, apart from...

Re: CT60e is coming :)

LC060 which I don't believe is falcon compatible. I believe you need a 680x0 MMU for a Falcon? If my memory serves well, it should be. The translation registers work even without the MMU. The biggest difference is that TOS is not copied to RAM but stays in ROM in such case. However I do remember re...

Re: Nemesis and CT60E

Of course it's possible. In fact, it's the best possible combination. :-)

I'd be interested to know what kind of support the CT60e gives with it comes to bus acceleration, there are some pads on its PCB but not sure what they are for.

Well, if you can write into CPLD I'd assume you can read from it, too. :-)

Unfortunately I wont have my Falcons and/or CT6{0,3,0e} for yet another three months so I can't help here. What you can do is to pray that the ship with my Atari stuff wont sink. ;-)

Re: Temperatures / CT60 Instability

As the author of mxplay I can give you one instant advice: don't use ACE files as a test case. It's a custom, closed source, assembler-based player which mxplay has zero control over. Try MPG123, ASAP or XMP plugins if you're looking for clean and stable code.
