Re: IKBD-to-USB?

Oh and another thought... I want to do a menu for they python app to allow the user to do some config stuff. Imagine this: You open a text editor on the ST (say, EvereST) - then hit an escape sequence on the keyboard (say, Esc-***). The python script then directs keyboard input to itself and uses t...

Re: IKBD-to-USB?

Maybe you Need some casting. I dont know, what types are port.read and in_byte, but maybe the prob is in the value assignment. A $80 can be interpreted as a -127 decimal, and if yout try to put that in an unsigned variable, maybe ist assigned as 0. poo happens sometimes. Try a direct print of port.r...

Re: IKBD-to-USB?

the first two bytes usually are $80 $01 and are meaning reset for the IKBD device.
Maybe you have got a signed/unsigned prob here ? the values from ST are unsigned.

Re: IKBD-to-USB?

I once had a try with the atari keyboard: Made it pc-usb kompatible over an arduino with my code and than connected it with the raspberry ikbdemu. was kind of funny to sniff the kbd data while normaly using the atari.

Re: IKBD-to-USB?

The IKBD communicates over a "high speed" serial link at the breathtaking speed of 7812.5 bits/s, if you can set you pi0 serial port to that speed it should work.. the ikbdemu image does that for you Oh, keep in mind the pi0 is 3.3v, and the atari is 5v. You probably need some kind of buf...

Re: Current purchasable USB Keyboard to Mega STe options

I was the one working on this solution, and yes it works. But currently only one way - keyboard is to sending to atari . Some Games and other stuff like gfa basic wont work because they want to send informations to the keyboard processor. That way still isnt implemented.

Re: Flatscreen monitors similar to Atari hi-res monitors?

The interpolation behavior of the Fujitsu Siemens P19-2 can not be set in the OSD. Resolutions smaller than the native resolution of 1280 x 1024 are always scaled up to full screen. Thats bad for TT High.

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

Whaaaat.... but still, you have to do some wiring from the DVI port, one way or another. Yes, wiring you have to do. But that's simple and and not a "complication". I'm not sure what you mean here: IKBD commands (mouse, keystrokes) --> IKBD injector --> RPi --> handling of the commands Th...

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

Really, the only complication is video output, It isnt. You can connect a Raspberry PI to an SC1224 and even to an SM124. See http://forum.atari-home.de/index.php?topic=11533.0 ! But I guess there maybe a problem with IKBD. As far as Iknow, It is an IKBD Injector and not an "bidirectional IKBD...

We dont need fast computers. We have to take in nourishment, expel waste, and inhale enough oxygen to keep ourselves from dying, everything else is optional.

One thing to mention: I told you to make a connection between the raspberrys TX and the Ataris Rx. But dont try the opposite ! Connecting the ataris TX direct to the raspberrys Rx would surely destroy your raspberry. The Reason: Raspberry is working with 3.3 V, Atari TTL uses 5V. 3V from rhe raspi i...

Fully Eiffel compatibility means the software side. If I add joystick support one day, it will be definitely USB Joysticks (or Pads). Goal of my project is to connect NEW!

4) Can the two joystick ports be connected and used? If so, where do these connect? (the Eiffel board has this ability) No joystick support yet. Maybe later.

scrollwheel is implemented as (non existing) function keys F13- ($59-$5D)
this can I do in my code, too
