Re: ct60 with a pico psu - startup problematic

Hi hencox, Hi 1st1, Thank you. It seems to be that it is 3.3v related, so it must be on the ct60 side. I think this is exactly the problem. That capacitor and reset circuit controls the reset signal for mainboard and ct60 CPU. If the CPU starts too early, while power supply is not stable, startup o...

Re: ct60 with a pico psu - startup problematic

There is a tipp from Chips'b'Chips which can help. Replace C7 capacitor on Falcon mainboard by 10uF, This one delays the reset logic a bit, until the power supply is more stable.

Re: Matrix Coco VME Video Card Problem

My CoCo is just working fine in my TT at 800x600@256 colors with a NEC Multisync TFT 1990nxp. NVDI5 is also active. But that TT has no Lignung-VME USB card, there is hardware adress conflict with CoCo.

Re: Exist any Intel x86 port of Atari TOS?

You can download the direct GEM port for MS-DOS from the Free-GEM websites. But it will not be able to execute 68K GEM software. PC basded GEM was also used to backport open source EmuTOS back to ST. That's because DRI has put PC version of GEM to open source status before it's doors vorever... http...

Re: Exist any Intel x86 port of Atari TOS?

TOS was unique to Atari, but its user interface, GEM, did exist in a PC version (actually Atari have ported it from PC). TOS is a mix of CP/M and DOS. Initially Atari wanted to use GEM on CP/M 68k. Wrong... Right... Not really. Just compare numbers of function calls in GEMDOS, BIOS, XBIOS with MS-D...

Re: Archeology: The TOS before version 1.00

All of the early 260 ST, 520 ST and 520 ST+ were shipped to customers with boot ROM only and that early TOS on diskette. My uncle used to have such an early 520 ST+, and some weeks later he drove again to his ATARI dealer and got the ROMs swapped for free. The reason was, that the final TOS 1.00 sti...

Re: Atari Falcon IDE to CF

You can't brick the IDE-CF-Adapter as it is just a mechanical conversion, connector to connector. Usually there is no logics/electronics on it. You might bricked the CF only.

Good luck!

Re: ExtenDOS 4 now available for free download

CD/DVD drives get less important for Ataris since CosomosEx and Lightning as they provide access to larger medias or even server shares where ISO images and physical CD/DVD medias can be extracted, but anyhow this is a great move. Thanks a lot!

Midi Maze II profits a lot of faster STs. It makes much more fun if there is no 8 Mhz machine in the ring.

Re: Atari SLM 804 Laserprinter and Panasonic Drum kit?

Charles, which of the two printers do you have? The weak point on 804 is the heating unit, no idea where to get spares for that. The weak point for 605 is it's power supply, probably dryed capacitors. Additionally 605 has a countdown module, which you have to replace with the drum kit. Sometimes I h...

Interestingly that video shows a working Sparrow with TOS 2.07 at about 14:40. As the video quality of that scene is quite good I expect that video is not old. Wow!

Hello, I am searching for an information about a replacement drum kit for the SLM 804. As it is known, the SLM is originally an TEC LB-1301 printer with different interface and chassis design/color. Some time ago I collected a list of all printers from OEM brands which used the TEC LB-1301 mechanics...

Re: SCSI2SD for TT help configuring!

No, PC has different partition schema, incompatibe to Atari (except if you use pera putnik driver).

You shoud repartition again, make the 1 GB partitions slightly smaller than 1 GB. That's what I did, instead of 1024 MB (1GB) only 1000 MB. And take the latest version of BIGDOS.

Re: SCSI2SD for TT help configuring!

Fat32 is unsupported for TOS.

I suppose to make the 1 GB partitions a little bit smaller than 1 GB. Instead of 1024 MB only 1000 MB. I don't have other idea, this way it works for my two TT.
