Acorn Atom?

Postby vebxenon » Tue Mar 07, 2017 1:17 pm

Hello:

I've seen that Gehstock has an Acorn Atom core in his repositories:

https://github.com/Gehstock/Mist_Cores/ ... orn%20Atom

Have anyone tested it?

Regards,

I saw a note on GitHub that the keyboard wasn't working.

The core starts, the SCART signal is OK, but the menu screen rolls verically!

Hello,
Tested it today and yes, it seems to work great in 15khz, except for the OSD that keeps rolling up.
Another thing that I've noticed : When you use the directions keys to move the cursor, a small blinking cursor (like an underscore) moves with the keys but the big non blinking cursor stays where it is. And when you press a key, the character is displayed whete the big cursor is located and not at the small blinking cursor.

Will it be possible to add a file reading/writing funtionality to the Electron. The core seems really good at the moment.

As a related point, I see the implementation in FPGA Arcade includes tape loading from SD card, so the code is written, obviously that is based on Xilinx rather than Altera though, but I guess the actual code is still Verilog or VHDL.
