Re: Alternative to GPL license

I am ready to release the sources of my 68000 cycle accurate core. Very good :) But I'm not so sure about the hypothetical case that a corporation would use it as an essential part of a commercial product. Regarding to GPL: indeed, there is no way to differentiate "good guys" and by the &...

Re: Convert any joypad to Atari

Yes, this technique can work on any joypad/joystick :) You just have to find the best points to solder the wires. And maybe remove some integrated chips, if that can make soldering easier. But nowadays, it is probably best to first have a look on web shops to see if there is a cheap, ready-to-use ad...

Convert any joypad to Atari

Here is how I converted a Super Nintendo joypad to Atari, 26 years ago. Spoiler: by soldering wires. This brutal technique can be easily applied to any joypad/joystick.

Re: m68k-atari-mint-gcc and generation of PC relative code

-fPIC and -fpic options require a Global Offset Table (GOT), and I considered it was not possible with our limited a.out file format. This why you see "Not supported" errors. When available, -fpic is limited to 16-bit offsets, while -fPIC allows full 32-bit offsets -mpcrel: As I understand...

Re: Faint vertical gray lines in STE/MSTE in high-res - Am I the only one?

Could it be a problem on some data bus line between Shifter and RAM?

BTW, what I see is that you have managed to display 3 different colors (white, black, grey) on supposedly bi-color hardware, that's quite amazing.

czietz, you are a genius 8) It is incredible that no one has found that for 33 years... This opens the door to a whole new generation of demo effects. I'm sure amazing new prods will appear shortly.

Re: FOR SALE: Atari Test (and others...) cartridge!

Hey, that's pretty cool 8-)
- Is it possible to easily update the cartridge contents, for someone who owns an EEPROM programmer?
- Would it be possible to update the cartridge contents from Atari software, or definitely impossible?
