Do you happen to know which RAMDACs the Falcon driver supports?


The following DACs should work:

ATT20C408
STG1702
CH8398A
2146886000 ATI TECH SPECTRA DAC

Re: new type 8 Nova ET4000 driver

Would it be possible to build the ET4000 driver for the Falcon? I am quite sure that this is possible. It requires modifying the drivers and it might also be necessary to change the GAL content. Since my Falcons are currently not on my workbench, I can't easily check the situation right now. Next t...

Re: Nova VME Bus Adapter Building Files ...

I wonder if that can work with CT60. Maybe your buyer pool would be smaller for this one. Still if you're just doing it for fun, it's worthwhile! I tried to get the Nova and the Eclipse working with the CT60 many years ago. After many months of modifying the source code, the GAL and the adapter, I ...

I don't remember which DACs are supported, but if I have a card with the same DAC at home, I will test it.

Re: Nova VME Bus Adapter Building Files ...

... Do you think I could swap the Superplus GAL from my old Nova into this new one you sent me or is the format/pins different now? I notice the board layout is pretty different so I didn't want to just try it. Is there a way to get another Superplus/Mach64 GAL? I can only seem to find Mach64 cards...

Re: Nova VME Bus Adapter Building Files ...

Oh ok, I thought in previous post it was said that one GAL works for all cards There is one GAL that supports Mach64 as well as ET4000, but there is also a early version that supports only ET4000! Try one of my drivers and follow the instructions for the jumpers. http://silicon-heaven.org/atari/nov...

Re: Nova VME Bus Adapter Building Files ...

Yes for the original Nova when it was upgraded from Mach32 to Mach64 I remember a different GAL was needed. So there are 3 GAL configurations? ET4000, Mach32 and Mach64? So if I have ATI Mach 64 and an ET4000 cards, Then I will need a different GAL to test each??? No...there is one GAL "that r...

I have a TR9C1710 and a w82c490P that work. I also own several other ET4000 cards, but need to check the driver compatibility first.

Try to look for a card that is in my list that I posted here! I will investigate your RAMDAC anyway, maybe I can find a solution. :shrug:

Re: Nova VME Bus Adapter Building Files ...

Yes...the RAMDAC is what I was asking about. Unfortunately, I do not have a ET4000 with this RAMDAC in my collection, which will make it somewhat difficult. Can you get a different ET4000 card? I will setup my TT and have a look at things, but I don't expect to be able to provide a solution from here.

No. I am talking about the surface mounted chip between the VGA bios and the pin header.

Re: Nova VME Bus Adapter Building Files ...

Always use all files in the AUTO folder.
And...please have a look at the square chip above the VGA bios and report back the type. Or take a picture with higher resolution.

Re: Nova VME Bus Adapter Building Files ...

Thanks! :thumbs:
I am not saying that it WILL kill things, but it might. Additionally, it makes it impossible to analyze the problem.

So....which one of my drivers did you use? What resolution did you you choose? Do the different drivers create the same result?

Re: Nova VME Bus Adapter Building Files ...

I guess I have to repeat a warning here: You can easily destroy at least your vga card, if not more, when you don't have the right GAL and/or sync settings. I destroyed at least two ATI cards when they got the wrong frequency settings through a setup that was wrong. This is one of the reasons why th...

Re: Nova VME Bus Adapter Building Files ...

Unfortunately the picture of the card is way too small to make out details like chip numbers. It looks like a standard 1MB ET4000AX though. What RAMDAC is on the card?
