Re: .App extension < How to use?

there is no way this screenshot is real, how can GEM desktop allow more than 8 characters folder ?? In Steem, click on the Disk Manager Icon, then click on "GEMDOS hard drive", and for the C drive, select the folder where your APP file is. Now reboot Steem and you should see your APP file ...

Re: 68080 Apollo Core

the problem is that very little people can code fpga to make a falcon close from the firebee. also the firebee is very expensive (almost twice more than the vampire) and I guess, the 68080 is more 68k compatible than the coldfire if the firebee had almost no significant improvement since 10 years, I...

Re: 68080 Apollo Core

the Vampire V4 stand alone card is basically aimed to replace Falcon + CT60, and be faster.
it's even faster than a firebee http://kronos.lutece.net/V4/V4_comparison.pdf

Re: Atari Jaguar Review - Another World - The Jag's Holy Grail?!

he had access to the original atari/amiga source code, but decided to re-do a JIT compiler for the script engine the entire game is programmed in.
JIT compiler on a 12mhz 68k, not an easy task. but was it necessary ? I don't think so. I think he just wanted to have some coding fun :)

Re: Turbochip - 7-channel YM+DMA replay

Another relevant fact about ST & PCE crossover is that HUDSON looked into using the M68000 for the PCE, going so far as to make some hardware and games, but eventually went with their own custom 8-bit CPU. Do you have source of that ? If it's true, it was a huge mistake imo, because the 6502 on...

Re: GCC 7.3.0 for m68k / m68020-60 / m5475 (ColdFire)

You could try local register variables, instead of the "move.w" in the "asm" block: https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Local-Register-Variables.html#Local-Register-Variables static inline void SpriteDraw_II(s16 x, s16 y, u16 tile, u16 size) { register s16 rx asm("d0") ...

Re: GCC 7.3.0 for m68k / m68020-60 / m5475 (ColdFire)

I think I found a workaround with GCC 8 not the best solution, but still better than using the stack. on a small loop I gain 5 HBL between VBCC and GCC 8 :D static inline void SpriteDraw(s16 x, s16 y, u16 tile, u16 size) { asm volatile ( "move.w %0,%%d0\n\t" "move.w %1,%%d1\n\t" ...

Re: GCC 7.3.0 for m68k / m68020-60 / m5475 (ColdFire)

You should better use it as a compile switch (-mfastcall). m68k-atari-mint-gcc-4.6.4.exe -mcpu=68000 -mfastcall -fomit-frame-pointer -S -O2 -c main.c cc1.exe: error: unrecognized command line option '-mfastcall' In most cases, yes.

Re: GCC 7.3.0 for m68k / m68020-60 / m5475 (ColdFire)

It's also available in the gcc-4.6.4 version on my site. But only for this compiler, not for 7.3 or 8.2. And as already mentioned, you will need libraries that are also compiled with --fastcall. mintlib does not work, but libcmini should support it. Seems like it's not working with 4.6.4: m68k-atar...
