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.

Re: USB keyboard/mouse interface

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...

Re: USB keyboard/mouse interface

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! Input Hardware to the Atari. But hey, maybe you can use an DB9 tu USB Adapter then ;-) 2GB should be enough, even with the futur...

Re: USB keyboard/mouse interface

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. See 5) 5) Nobox, since the code for the scroll-wheel is possible to use with this setup, will you update the software with it? Perhaps also i...

Re: USB keyboard/mouse interface

I wrote the code on a raspberry 1B, and neogain used it on a raspberry 2. Never tried on a zero, but I think it has to be bin compatible. About the confusing with RX and TX: "PIN4 der KBD-Schnittstelle mit PIN8 GPIO (RX bzw TX)" MEANS: PIN4 (on the Mega STE) is RX (of the Atari) Pin 8 GPIO...

Re: USB keyboard/mouse interface

For what eiffel does, there is a special interface and driversoftware on the atari. The raspberry ikbd emulator connects and has a behavior like a normal Atari/Keyboard mouse. No driver software on atari side at all. Thats why I only can generate Keyboard/mouse events what can be generated by a norm...

Re: USB keyboard/mouse interface

Your summary is correct. Because I use a raspberry setup, I dont have to fiddle around with librarys for different hardware, cause the linux os got all the drivers. Only thing to program was a listener on usb input events, and translate it to a atari output on the serial device. Thats what the souce...
