Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

I'm used to think in base 1024, so I get slightly confused by odd numbers greater than 1.

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

@sorgelig: Thanks for this great update. Was the switch to base 1000 in RAM size intentional? In the more traditional 1024 base the fast ram sizes should be 24MB, 56MB, 280MB and 312MB.

Re: Internet and Linux Shell for Amiga and ao486

I finally got AmiTCP running. In addition to installing AmiTCP following sorgeligs steps, I had to get ppp.device from http://aminet.net/package/comm/net/PPP1_45 and move PPP/devs/ppp.device.020.eval from the archive to devs:networks/ppp.device. For console access (after setting UART mode to Console...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

I haven't felt the need to upgrade from my A1000 back in the days, so I'm not at all an expert in A1200 hardware. The obvious reason to disable the cache on chipram would be that there is no reliable way to mark it dirty. Also, chipram and kickram access can be routed through the chipset or directly...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

I think the main problem of minimig is that WinUAE is just too good. If you are only interested in running old software, that's your best (and cheapest) choice.
I plan to spend some more time on minimig in late fall (RTD...) . In the warmer months I use most of my spare time for outdoor activities.

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Wasn't the main frequency somehow correlated to the frame rate? At least NTSC and PAL have different clock speeds. Could therefore lead to some glitches in the video output, in particular VGA. I think it would not be hard to use the additional 32MB as fast RAM. But I doubt that there is any core rig...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

It's very unlikely that the recent updates cause slowdowns. The problem with the 68020 lib is the missing RTD instruction. I've been looking into it, but the tg68k code is a mess. After some trial & error, I got the old pure 68k version from opencores.org. Since everything works in parallel and ...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

The binary writes infos about the image it tries to load on the console output. You can find the instructions above. I had the problem, that the binary didn't accept the cylinder/sector/head combination of an image created on an A1200. Maybe we have to relax the constraints.

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

BTW, I guess I figured out, why I had stability problems with the last major update of the binary: probably MiSTer now needs more power. But since using a pair of 0.75mm^2 cables to connect to my 100W/5V power adapter, those random resets are gone. (And yes, 100W for MiSTer is way too much. It repla...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Formatting a partition while doing other things pretty reliably crashes my Minimig when running 3.1.4. Somehow the process dispatch of exec does not find any process it wants to start. Someone found that it's better when the max transfer rate is limited. Right now I've got an even bigger problem, th...

Which CPU did you select? Why are you using 3.1 Roms with 3.1.4? You can (and should) use the file ROMs/unsplit_unswapped/kick.a1200.46.143 Do you have the same problem when using a 3.1 system? We do have a general stability problem with IDE in 3.1.4. I'm looking into this at the moment, so it will ...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Yes, that is what I wanted to say. From the user perspective, you only have to worry about scalers when using VGA. There are no such options for HDMI, since the signal always has to be scaled.

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

OK. I'll try to give a step by step guide, also as a reference for other people who might have a similar problem. 1. Deselect all floppy and ide images. Minimig might just hang trying to load a certain file. 2. Check Kickstart ROM. Use originals from Amiga Forever or check if it works with WinUAE. 2...

In Minimig the mouse does no longer work and there are frequent crashes which restart the binary. Something we did not have before.

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

New Feature: use raw USB Sticks or SD cards (connected via USB) as hard disk. Since I finished changing the capacitors of my A1200, I wanted this feature to be able to use the same SD Card in both devices. It's sort of a bugfix for Main_Mister. The binary thinks it's only dealing with regular files,...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

If Minimig does not find a "rom.key" file, it wont load Amiga Forever roms (which are of size 256K + 11 or 512K + 11). Also, there is no encrypted version of 3.1.4.

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Minimig also tends to hang if it does not find an active hdf or adf file. Have you disabled all ide drives and removed all floppy images in the OSD? I once moved my hdf files and the system also did refuse to boot without error message. The size is fine, if MiSTer loads it. But since MiSTer does not...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Please double check the rom you are loading. MiSTer only checks for the right file size. Also, I would recommend a memory check using the MemTest core

Works fine here with HDMI. I used 68020, Turbo: Both, ECS, Kick 2.04, Chip 1M, Fast 4M, Slow 1.5M... that should be a good setting for an ECS demo. There has been a memory mapping error in 20190501, which was fixed in the current release 0502 (or so). But that should only do damage if a program uses...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

At least a problem with the MMULib is, that tg68k does not implement the (68010) instruction RTD. But that should be an easy one. It moves the content of the stack to PC and adds some immediate value to SP.
