Re: Y2K date fix for 2017?

I almost forgot that there's a MonSTer RTC program for setting the date/time, which I didn't try for this. Is this a special time-setter which differs from setting the time with say the Xcontrol accessory as it handles specifically those RTC modules, and no other software should be used for that, o...

Re: MagiC/MagiCMacX source updated

I have only tested this with MagiC 6.2 on STM and STE, so I really can't say. Maybe the author just did not have any way to actually test it on TT and Falcon? And MAGIC.RAM is designed to run from RAM after TOS has initialised the hardware, maybe there's more than memory to initialise on these machi...

Re: MagiC/MagiCMacX source updated

I've found a tool magixrom.ttp done by Wilfried Mintrop, from 1994. But it does not work with MagiC 6.2. If you have something different/newer, or a working ROM image, pls let me know ;) See this post: http://atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=27702&p=269681&hilit=magxrom#p269681 This...

Re: MagiC/MagiCMacX source updated

If you look closer, you will find already rom_de.prj etc. in the kernel build directory. I didn't download anything (yet) but only read your BUILDING.md . Good to hear that a ROM-version has already been taken care of :) What's missing though is memory initialization & detection. Shouldn't be t...

Re: MagiC/MagiCMacX source updated

I'll have to take a closer look at this when I get some spare time. I wonder if it would be possible (with a reasonable amount of work) to add ROM-targets too? Would be usable with emulators, MiST/MiSTer and real hardware with flash-TOS.

Re: Atari Falcon IDE to CF

This may be true, but not all CF cards are the same. I went though about 10 CF cards before I found one that HDDriver 8.x liked in my Falcon many years ago. Absolutely correct, and which is why debugging an IDE-port in unknown state with a CF-card you don't know works with a driver you haven't test...

I'm quite sure that later versions of the ICD driver supports XHDI.

Edit: It does: "Fully XHDI 1.2 compliant" (http://www.icd.com/atari/)

You have to install the driver on the boot-partition (C:). Did you do step 18-22 in the guide you linked to above? What is the size of your boot-partition?

Re: Can somebody compile a Netsurf that works with 256 colours?

Yes well I think the TT bus becomes saturated at 24bit colour, it is far too slow with my TT in 1024x768 24bit mach64 2mb. This is why I would prefer a 1024x768 256 colour compatible Netsurf. But then Netsurf will have to convert all images to 256 colour, which will be even slower. A good compromis...

Re: Atari Falcon IDE to CF

So, what could be bothering the falcon from booting with just the adapter plugged in? Only speculating as I have not checked the actual schematics, but maybe the master/slave jumper on the adapter fools TOS into thinking that there's a device present. It appears that the honorable ppera himself is ...

Re: log over screen

I don't think. You are probably right, these messages seems to come from nfs.xfs itself, and are independent of debug level. I'm currently not using NFS myself so I have not noticed it. If these messages can't be supressed by lowering the debug level you should report this on the MiNT-list. There i...

Test the CT in another Falcon if possible. If you don't have access to another Falcon I suggest to get in touch with Willy, he should be able to test and if necessary fix your CT.

Is your MiST set up as an STE like MasterOfGizmo advised you? If not, you want TOS 1.04, not 1.6.
