Re: New TT + FALCON/ST PC-like case.

Would it be possible to have an almost plain back with just the square holes cut and supply templates for ST/STE/Falcon allowing people to drill the holes that they need ?

It might make the project cheaper and simpler.

Re: Beginning of very long journey

Implement all Falcon signals on VGA connector and no problem - if someone need old DB19 it can make VGA <> DB19 adapter. E. g. I am using SM124 sometimes with my Falcon (I have original Atari DB19 <> DIN13 adapter for this). Unfortunatelly, there are no NC pins on VGA pinout. They are all either si...

Re: Beginning of very long journey

For instance use a 1GB card even if it can't address all of it or use SATA instead of IDE. I do not want to dissapoint you, but SATA is most likely not going to happen. By the way what do you feel as limitation of Falcon PATA implementation? To me, this seems like one of the least problematic chapt...

Re: Beginning of very long journey

I wonder how much of the design/routing was "copied" from the STe or TT to help reduce their development time ? Are there any features that you could omit or replace with something simpler/better ? I know you would want to avoid feature creep but it might make it simpler in terms of compon...

Re: The SECRET VIDEO MODE in an ST: 400 lines in COLOR (and with 72 Hz)!

So does that mean the available video modes would become:

Low : 320 × 200 (16 colour), palette of 512 colors
Med : 640 × 200 (4 colour), palette of 512 colors
High : 640 × 400 (mono)

Secret : 320 × 400 (4 colour), palette of 512 colors

Re: webradio on falcon

I gather FalcAmp has always been Falcon specific because it used the DSP.

Could it be made more general for 060 users or wouldit be too much for the cpu ?

Re: IDE -> sata adapter

I used the DVD for the later testing because the adapter wouldn't be able to wreck like it had done to the HDDs,

I had hoped to use 2 adapters so I could have my usual 2HDDs and a DVD drive.

The cheap single drive adapter worked but I would only be able to have 2 drives in total.

IDE -> sata adapter

Back in 2015 I bought a Startech pata to sata adapter to try to use in the Milan. The goal was to switch to sata drives and a sata PSU. The adapter goes in the MB IDE port and with a mod to remove the plugged hole for the pin that the Milan has, it goes in nicely. This adapter alows you to connect 2...

Re: Memory protection in Mint

The solution is to change the memory protection flags for this application to "readable", this can be done with Thing! (and probably other tools too). This will allow other applications to READ data from the application's memory, but not write anything. This will fix most, if not all, mem...

The others simms I have can be a little unreliable, taking a few attempts to get them seated so that they are detected. If the 128MB aren't seating very well then ...
