evil wrote:Yeah, I think their approach is more sane than trying to stick a Radeon to a PCI-bus like some other solution. It's a lot of more work to do of course, but the end result is worth it. If one's after quick Open GL on the Atari, then maybe not, but for the rest, I think SuperVidel got it right.
evil wrote:35 Hz game logic sounds good for a 060, I don't think it has a problem traversing that junk-code But doing different code-paths for rendering on 060 sounds like a big job, perhaps best spend the time to get it ready for 030 machines before poking into that stuff, after all, BadMooD is really a great showcase for standard Falcon 030.
evil wrote:I just ran it on SuperVidel. Almost works. The splitscreen effect for the status panel doesn't work. I'm not sure if SuperVidel allows HBL/Timer-B HBL at all, or if it's due to that I havn't done the solder install (which uses sync signals from the motherboard).
What exactly happens in your splitscreen code?
Does the 160x200 option use "wide pixels in hardware"? (awesome in such case, because that means the SuperVidel is actually compatible with this, and I don't think any of us tested that before!).

dml wrote:If that's the case it might be a good idea for BM to detect SV and use the same workaround as is used for Hatari - no raster involved.
I think the rest should be ok though.

evil wrote:4. Render frame in TT-RAM
5. move16 from TT-RAM to SV-RAM
Plotting pixels direct to SV-RAM is not a good idea, there's a big penalty for many small writes.
At least when doing 8-bit/pixel tests, this method was much faster than rendering directly to SV-RAM.
