Re: Someone has open sourced an STM/STF Blitter/TOS 2.0 and IDE expansion board

Many STFMs, atleast later revision mobos, are already prepared for a blitter. Either there is an empty socket, or somewhere you can put a socket. This board is for short ST, where there is no dedicated socket: http://www.atari-wiki.com/images/1/1d/ST_Motherboard_C070243_Rev_E_520STM.jpg Yes, I wrot...

Re: Someone has open sourced an STM/STF Blitter/TOS 2.0 and IDE expansion board

Many STFMs, atleast later revision mobos, are already prepared for a blitter. Either there is an empty socket, or somewhere you can put a socket. So this board is not necessary for most, if you only want blitter. But it's a cool piece of work nonetheless. I suspect a version featuring an FPU instead...

Re: Top Ten – Rarest / Most Valuable Atari Jaguar Games!

Telegames and Songbird regularly makes new prints of their games, so calling them rare is a stretch.

It's another thing with the games that will never see a reprint, such as Rayman, and several other of the original releases.

Re: Having issues with TOS 1.04 ROMS.

Oh, you leave so many questions unanswered on what you have done it's almost painful. So it's kinda easier to describe how it works instead of trying to decipher what you've been up to... On ST, TOS, from a software perspective, is the same regardless if it's a 2 rom version or 6 rom version. All ve...

Re: Pre-announcing the Lightning ST - USB & IDE for STs

Nice work Czietz! I certainly want one... :)

I assume the USB connector follows PC-standard? One or two USB ports?

Why did you choose a 40 pin IDE socket and a separate power connector over a 44-pin IDE socket?

Re: Pre-announcing the Lightning ST - USB & IDE for STs

Just curious - will this board work with accelerators like the AdSpeed ST? Thanks. Well, if it works with Pak it should work with accelerators in general I think. But AdSpeed is different as it uses the IDE hardware I/O space to control it's functions, I'm really not sure how that works out as I ha...

No, you didn't miss anything. His standard library is missing, and it makes pretty much all of his sources hard to compile I'm afraid.

I'll look around for it, I know I have it.

The external SCSI ZIP drive requires parity, the internal version allows parity to be disabled. And yes, zip-drives work excellent with Atari, as long as the parity issue is considered.
