Re: Best Electronics

Well, it seems I must have offended him or something. I tried my personal domain email, wrote the email in plain text (no html), had the Atari word in subject and still no reply.

I swear I only wanted to purchase stuff from him and asked him if they are available. :-/

Re: We redesign the STE

Some people here seem to think that hardware specs sells computers. It doesn't. Well said. Maybe in our 'obscure' circles we had been arguing whether Amiga's 7 MHz is better than ST's 8 MHz but generally speaking, nobody really cared. Exactly as you said, the main selling point was the software. On...

Re: NetBSD Atari

Last time I tried a NetBSD install on CT60, it was rather disappointing. Considering the fact it ran at about 80 MHz, I was expecting more. Esp. the boot time was terrible. FreeMiNT/MagiC is nowhere comparable, much much faster.

I'd prepare everything on PC and then just try to boot the end result.

Re: Dune II / OpenDUNE for Falcon (and TT)

To me it always looked like some artificial addition -- they basically took the planar modes (more or less everything the TT could already do) and got this idea / hack / proof of concept running in high colour.

Re: CosmosEX with Mint or MagiC

I think the issue is in the translated mode, i.e. when you put, say, an USB stick, and want to access it as a normal GEMDOS drive.

Re: Additional OPL2 sound through parallel port ?

The problem isn't the driver (although there can be an issue with PC vs. Atari parallel port compatibility). The real problem is usage -- even for the target audience (PC/DOS users) there's been only a handful of games patched. For Atari you would need to literally *create* support for that sound ca...

Re: Moving CT60 to a different Falcon

Well, I had the classic 74F04 clockpatch with the PowerUp2 (basically just CPU @ 32 MHz) and one of the signals went to the PU2 and then back to the 74F04 making it way too long. So I just cut the wire to the PU2, connected it directly to the 74F04 and voila.

Yeah, exactly as Jo Even says. I had the same impression as well but only when I got his cool 'support board' it was totally obvious that the devil was in details: bending the CT60e board, not low profile enough PicoPSU. It's very misleading.

Interesting, looks like an internal buffer issue (not properly allocating and/or resizing or whatever). I wish I had more proper 'environment' around me for this kind of stuff... one notebook and very little free time and another project in the works --> not good. But it's not forgotten.
