Re: New Firmware, FPGA Configuration and FireTOS

Really nice to see some progress here. I bought a FireBee long time ago and never was able to actually use it. Now that I see they worked a bit on MIDI stuff I really hope to see this completed one day. Me too actually. I have a HUGH collection of MIDI programs and files on hand. I used them when I...

Re: - Hatari -

I have Hatari for Windows and ran it on my wife's PC. I loaded some programs on the hard drive image file (Mudpies, Joust and some others). I loaded that image in the Firebee version and it came fine. The graphics of Mudpies and Joust were perfect. It is just everything was soooooo sloooow. I talke...

Re: New Firmware, FPGA Configuration and FireTOS

Hi all, Apparently I messed up the flashing. I think I was too impatient while flashing BaS (is this supposed to take several minutes?). Anyway, FireTOS no longer boots (it seems to fail when setting the video mode; I end up with a white screen) and skipping AUTO doesn't help. It's a mess. However,...

Re: - Hatari -

I managed to get Hatari up and running. I found when it was loaded that the mouse did not smoothly and I could not use the program. However, when I loaded the program again (two Hatari programs running), I was able to use the mouse quite nicely. Now, when I tried to load in a hard drive or a floppy,...

Re: Using a TT Keyboard on the Firebee

Well I have gotten the Joystick on the TT keyboard to work when I loaded in a game port of Xenon II by Patrice Mandin. I talked with once the authors of the Atari800 emulator and told him about how the Joystick option does not work on the Firebee even though I have SDL loaded in. He old me that ther...

Re: Using a TT Keyboard on the Firebee

FireBee's Atari800 uses SDL for handling joysticks so if you can get another SDL game using them, that would be a good signal. SDL's readme gives some clues: SDL_JOYSTICK_ATARI: Use any of these strings in the environment variable to enable or disable a joystick: 'ikbd-joy1-[on|off]' for IKBD joyst...

Re: Using a TT Keyboard on the Firebee

Thank you very much vido for steering me to this Xenon2 port. It answers my question. The joystick, using the TT keyboard board works just fine. Now I know it must be something with the Atari800 emulator that is causing the joystick not to work. Or it could be I have the settings wrong.

Using a TT Keyboard on the Firebee

Hello all, I bought a TT keyboard from Best Electronics (last one they had I think) and have used it on my Firebee. It works and functions well. The Atari mouse also works great. I was wondering if anyone else has or is using a TT keyboard and if they have gotten an Atari joystick to work. I am curr...

Re: Atari Screensaver for Firebee

i´d like to mention that you can use the always available and most efficient screensaver - the monitor power switch :lol: Actually that's what I do if I leave my Falcon on and I need to go off for 10 mins. Any longer, I would just shutdown. Would be nice to have a sleep mode. On my windoze, I put i...

well, i will try that CPX screen saver next time I have my FB out. My Falcon/CT63 is currently setup in my small man cave. Well that screen does work for me. I get a blank screen, so I guess that works for me until I can figure out Twilight. I tried 256 and 16bit color and Twilight still crashes wh...

Re: Atari Screensaver for Firebee

I can see your point, but it still would be nice to use it. If I cannot, then I will just go with out one. Who knows, maybe the next monitor I get will have a built in one.

Re: Atari Screensaver for Firebee

are you using memory protection? On the FireBee? No way. Yes, that is true. I would love to use memory protection, but cannot. It just bogs my mind why other are using Twilight when I cannot.

Re: Flashing the Firebee Using a PC

Nice to know, about this multilink board ... the inability to "flash" has always been a gamestopper for me to actually join in. Personally I find the mechanism to flash a wee bit too expensive, and a wee bit too complicated. But with this, I just might go out and look to find one ... especially if ...
