Re: CPU/Processor Upgrade for the Atart ST

IIRC Vampire v2 doesn't support Atari ST due to lack of signals like VPA,VMA and E needed by ST That is not correct. Now you are not correct. In the first tests a few weeks ago in ST board they had to rewire some Vampire test pins to unwired pins on the 68000 socket. We told the Apollo team already...

Re: CPU/Processor Upgrade for the Atart ST

Next step seems to have been done, SAGA can support ST Shifter video modes. http://www.apollo-core.com/knowledge.php It's not clear from that link if that is running already on a ST mainboard or Amiga.

Re: CPU/Processor Upgrade for the Atart ST

Believe me, they are working on it. Above you see a posting from Ingo, they are doing it.

But it's still too early, I hoped so, but it is still not booting successfully. But we soon will see it.

What happened to www.aranym.org ?

Hi,

did I miss something? What happened to https://www.aranym.org/ ? When I go to there, it opens a website "Amy Info - Tech Tips from Amy"

Has aranym website moved elsewhere or has it been hijacked, or some DNS issue?

I know, this is still there: https://aranym.github.io/

Re: CF card + HDDRIVER 10.02 in Falcon

You have to take care on Big/Little Endian! IDE is 16 bit interface (while ACSI/SCSI is 8 bit). Motorola is using Big Endian data format for 16 bit word. That means, the high byte is in the front of the low byte. Intel is using little endian data on 16 bit words. That is the functionality of the &qu...

Re: CPU/Processor Upgrade for the Atart ST - Vampire about to land on ST

Good news, but until a real MMU appears it is still of no interest to me. Tryed MMU support on TT & Falcon-CT60 with EasyMint. Result: More crashs with applications. It's nice to have, but benefit in MiNT is small. Anyhow, as soon as Vampire runs in ST, the more there will be requests for MMU. ...

Re: Utilize more than 1GB from SD Card UltraSatan

The limitation is not TSO 2.05, but STacy/MegaSTE internal ACSI-SCSI-hostadapter. (Difference between TOS 2.05 & 2.06 is mainly that 2.06 supports legacy ST hardware)

Re: CPU/Processor Upgrade for the Atart ST - Vampire about to land on ST

There are other accelerators with faster CPU's (020 and 030), I have no real experience with them. However, it's clear that compatibility suffers compared to a 68000 accelerator, unless there's a possibility to fall back to the original CPU. No problem if you don't play games though. If you're a &q...

In my experience the mainboard's capacitors in all Atari ST series computers are of good quality and did not lost relevant capacity over the past ~30 years. The only point where you have to take care are some capacitors in the power supplies. We don't have that massive problem that our friends with ...
