Re: Multitos Beta

Thanks guys. No, I wasn't thinking about TOS4.92 or standalone AES4.1 as, like joska, I had read there was a beta Multitos (as in the mint+aes+installer combination) that was never put out in US English only. Perhaps I got the wrong end of the stick and people were simply talking about AES4.1 which ...

Thanks Thorsten, but it was the Multitos package I was looking for rather than the MiNT kernel. :thumbs:

Multitos Beta

Hi guys, I've seen various references around to the last, unreleased, version of Multitos. The one that shipped with AES 4.1. 1.08 beta, is the version number I've seen. I've not been able to find an intact copy of this anywhere, though. Does anyone have a disc image or zip file (or however it was d...

Re: Another Smallymouse2

Update to the firmware that fixes the mouse bug (above) and adds a configurable divisor to the USB input parameters. I find a rate of divide by three provides a nice response with my particular fixed-DPI mouse. This is configurable at the top of main.c. HEX file is attached if of interest. Full deta...

Re: Another Smallymouse2

Cheers for the heads up, @Tzok. I've changed the behaviour of the buttons (at least -- I suspect the quadrature is meant to behave similarly, is it?). The firmware's available from my GitHub if anyone's interested. The pertinent details are at https://github.com/dh219/SmallyMouse2/commit/803f7c1757f...

Re: Another Smallymouse2

Original firmware strong drives the mouse button lines, which is very wrong. You need to either change these outputs in software to act as open-collector type or add a diode in series (cathode towards ATMega). Otherwise, you will make a short circuit when pressing FIRE on joystick on port 1 Importa...

Re: Another Smallymouse2

@Stormy Interesting. My Tom2 maxes out far too low. Moving the mouse in any way other than *really* slowly results in maximum speed cursor displacement -- which is really slow. It's like moving the pointer with a joystick. Latest firmware on Tom2, but since it's closed I've no idea what it's doing u...

Using the Falcon's expansion connector

Hi guys, I've been thinking of experimenting a bit with the Falcon's internal expansion connector. To start with I'd like to try to hanging a PGA 030 chip off it and have it take over bus mastery of the Falcon, disabling the onboard 030. Similar to how the CT60 simply plugs in, but without (for now)...

Oh crap -- I'm such a n00b! Is there a good reference for the above? Whilst my example was with timer-A, my program is intending to use the BUSY line (interrupt 0).

Re: Xbtimer(), Mfpint() and interrupt handlers

- try the interrupt keyword on the function. That should work with GCC, but not other compilers. Its purpose is to tell the compiler that this function must preserve all registers. This definitely has to work: https://sourceforge.net/p/mxplay/code/HEAD/tree/trunk/plugins/audio/xmp/xmp.c#l209. I spe...

Badwolf, I think you have messed something up -- as you can see in my example, I'm using Timer A the same way you do and it works. Maybe you just need to add the attribute again, which is missing in your example. Thanks guys, I probably did. After banging my head on it for a couple of days I've thr...

Good evening all, I've been trying to work on a hardware project using the BUSY interrupt on the printer port, but everywhere I turn with handling interrupts in C leads me to bomb-tastic experience on real hardware.

Sounds like in CT6X mode, it can't establish the correct updates have been applied and so is rebooting each time. The config file lets you decide what you want to set. If you choose to set nothing (commenting out all the NVRAM stuff) then you shouldn't get the reboot loop. Of course if you do want t...

Well apart from the reboot not working (which is odd, but you have a workaround for that), it sounds like your internet is not up and running by the time it executes (could not resolve meaning your DNS isn't working).
