What about creating a simple patch-program that patches the user's file(s)? Distributing that shouldn't be a problem.

Do you have all the pieces from the broken case? I would be interested in buying it for a project which needs a modified top case.

In that case you have to use both an additional port on your Atari AND a driver. Yes, it will work but... A much better solution is to make the mouse adapter an IKBD device that connects between the computer and keyboard.

Re: Inexpensive RTC just wire in?

Well, since the soundchip does not have open-collector/-drain outputs: how can you simultaneously have SDA (e.g. IOA7) as an input ... You can't. I was under the impression that the YM's IO-ports had open collector, but apparently it doesn't. So forget about this idea. You'll have to have some inte...

Re: Inexpensive RTC just wire in?

I2C has two signals - clock and data. Both are open collector. In an ST you can use the un-used IOA7 and very rarely used IOA6 (GPIO on the monitor port) on the soundchip for this purpose. As long as your RTC handles 5V signals no additional logic would be needed. Maybe a couple of pull-up resistors...

Re: always make a backup ..

What kind of file is this? If it's a textfile you can normally recover it by piecing it together from raw sector data. Tedious, but not really difficult.

You mean modifying the I2C-routines in the MonSTer RTC driver? I guess so, depending on where you connect the RTC :) What kind of Atari do you want to use this in?

Re: Smally USB Mouse Adapter ...

No, it's not possible. This adapter - and any other adapter that connects to the mouse port - can only support the same features as Atari mice. To support wheel etc you must be able to generate the new IKBD packets for this, only an IKBD device like Eiffel can do that.

Re: Apollo Team announces developing of Vampire standalone version to run as AMIGA and ATARI ST

I've never used MP on the Milan. I tried it but Thing desktop didn't work so I switched MP off again. It's not Thing! that doesn't work, but some other application that tells Thing! to access PRIVATE memory via the AV-protocol. Mint on the Milan is very stable even without it and few apps crash.

Please note that TOS does not handle dates > 2000 correctly when using the IKBD clock. To use this mod you will either need a patched TOS or a software patch of some sort.

Re: Inexpensive RTC just wire in?

But you still would have to completely rewrite the software for setting and reading the RTC. Not really. The RTC driver for the MonSTer card comes with sources, and is compatible with the DS series of RTC's. The MonSTer does not actually have an I2C interface, just a couple of generic IO pins. So i...

Yes, the Nova driver use the Mach's hardware acceleration. I have no experience with Mach32/64 on the TT, but had a Nova Mach64 in my Falcon for a couple of years and it was a lot faster than my TT's ET4000.

ET4000 has no hardware acceleration, so it's not any faster than standard TT high with NVDI.

Re: Determining VT52 console dimension

What mfro said. LineA is a much more reliable option than Getrez. LineA is also documented by Atari and is safe to use if you really have to.

I suggest you first look for the ROWS/COLUMNS env variables (for compatibility with TOSWIN/MiniWin) and fall back to LineA.

One might even consider this a bug in NVDI, then.
