Re: Need help with 1040 repair

The socket may have been for a PC emulator, a lot of them piggy back the CPU.

Re: Atari ST in Australia

Re: Red Screen (of death)

So far I've replaced Freddie, MMU, EMMU, RAM and a couple of others I forget. There are a ton of ways RAM can play up. Mine is still sitting on the shelf. Best option is to get a test cart.

Re: TT030 VGA picture quality

I thought as much. I was just thinking, rather than figuring a VGA solution, in this day and age a DVI one would be ideal. Especially if it could handle ECL input as well.

Wishful thinking, I guess.

Re: Dual monitor setup?

A lot of LCD's will do that with the Falcon, they don't all used fixed frequencies, blubb is one of them. ST's do, so less drama. I use Asus LCD's and they do the same thing at the same time, they also display frequency changes. If a part of the demo flashes past with frequency change you won't see ...

Re: Atari Falcon Eagle add-in module

It isn't always about blinding speed, at least, not for me. If I run ST software on the CT2 it runs like a turbo charged, Viagra infused hot rod. I'm ok with the speed I get from that. CT60 would be nice, but not that necessary. I sort of see it as missing out on 2% of Atari software. If that makes ...

Re: TT030 HD Floppy Format TOS 3.06

I have a STFM I did a HD upgrade hack on, it has Tos 1.04. I used to have a boot floppy that had a HD cookie driver. It worked a treat. You could do the same with any machine as far as I am aware, the jumper only enables the cookie for TOS. Reminds me I have to upgrade the ROM in my TOS 4.01 Falcon....

Re: Atari Falcon Eagle add-in module

Now I remember, the CT2 is 32 bit RAM address, Eaglesonic is still 16 bit. Mightysonic had the fast RAM. I have to say this is one of the most bizarre discussions I have had. If it works, leave it, if it doesn't, it is bloody easy to remove. To complain it breaks compatibility rules out nearly every...

Re: Atari Falcon Eagle add-in module

Weird. When I was running it I never had any drama's. It doesn't overclock the bus, it is just a 32mhz CPU from what I remember. It isn't anything like power up, it is closer to the CT2 with no bus mod. The eagle sonic has its own 32mhz CPU on board, powerup doesn't. I repaired this board myself 20+...

Re: Atari Falcon Eagle add-in module

Mighty sonic, Eagle sonic card. It has a 32Mhz PGA 68030 CPU. Made by GE soft. I installed that card about twenty years ago into that very machine. :D

I have a vague recollection that it is full 32 bit, but I could be wrong. Benching it, it should match a TT.

Disney are nothing if not consistent. They distort the truth in a lot of their productions.
