Re: Dead Falcon (black screen) after replacing NVRAM

Well that made me think maybe I should check under the FPU, and maybe it wasn't in the socket right even though it looked like it was. I pulled it out and one pin on the corner was bent. I don't know when it got bent, it could have been before I put it in, when I put it in, or when I pulled it out j...

Dead Falcon (black screen) after replacing NVRAM

Hi, So many years ago I disassembled a Falcon to replace the NVRAM with a socket+Dallas chip. I got buried in projects and never reassembled it until now, but it was working fine before I took it apart. Unfortunately it seems it no longer does :( Voltages at the power supply are the correct +5v/+12v...

Geneva sets up the path in C:\GEMSYS\GEM.CNF

You'll see an entry like this in that text file:

Code: Select all

setenv PATH=,C:\GENEVA
Edit the path accordingly there and reboot!
Perfect. Fixed the problem. Although my GEM.CNF was in C:\GENEVA
Thanks!!!

Yes confirmed. It restores my assembler options. Also, it saves and restores the INCDIR path. It really looks like Geneva is clearing the path variable and adding itself to the empty path.

Devpac 3.1 environment path overwritten by Geneva?

I installed Geneva and Neodesk 4 on my Mega STE, and I'm trying to use Devpac 3.1... Every time I start Devpac the path environment variable is reset to ",C:\GENEVA" and it won't assemble. I put "c:\devpac31\bin" back in the path before the Geneva part and it works, I save my configuration, but it's...

Mapping special Atari keys to USB keyboard

I'm using my MiST in STEroids mode and I can't seem to find a key on my USB keyboard equivalent to the Atari 'Help' key. I know about key_remap in mist.ini, but since IKBD scancodes and USB HID scancodes are different, I can't think of a way that would help me. How can I get a key mapped to 'Help'?

Re: I screwed up my XaAES resolution

Thank you, I booted into plain TOS and deleted the file. Everything is good again in 16-bit color mode.

256 color modes definitely do not work for me at the resolutions I've tried. Has anyone else tested 1366x768 256 mode?

Re: Combining cores

It's pretty common situation. If one core has a better module then it's copied to another core. Sometimes you need to adjust the signals to match the new module with the core. You are saying it's a common situation to do something like take an Atari ST core and add a sound chip that was never used ...

Combining cores

Has anyone ever done weird experiments with trying to combine hardware from different cores? Things like adding the FM sound chip from a Genesis/Megadrive core to the Atari ST core? I really have no idea how feasible something like this would be but I'm very interested in the idea.

Re: The last MIST

This isn't a "decision". It's just that the MIST doesn't sell anymore (agreed, you obviously bought one :D ). So Lotharek has plenty of them in stock since quite some time now. The fact that they don't sell means that his stock will last pretty long. And if it doesn't last for long since for some m...

I already have a Firebee on order, but I also wanted a full FPGA ST clone with high compatibility like the MIST. You can never have too many Ataris. :)

Thanks for the reply. I would love to do that but I haven't done any FPGA programming yet.
Perhaps I will try if it's really not that hard. I am surprised no one else is doing this yet though.
