Re: ao486

Not sure if anyone finds this useful, but I was able to install and configure FreeDOS on this core and it seems to work fairly well. Still have some things to figure out like sound and terminal for PPP, but it's a much more modern DOS that should be fully backwards compatible. http://www.freedos.or...

Re: ao486

you have to think dos for that :D mount the hd as primary and run dos installer from floppy. but before installing dos with the installer quit it and use "fdisk". create primary partition, set the boot flag. back in dos after reboot format the drive with "fromat c:" install dos on that drive (primar...

Re: ao486

create a vhd (virtual hard disk) with the windows integrated partition tool. max 2gb - fat 16. doubleclick in windows to mount that. copy stuff on it. move vhd to sd-card. mount as hd.

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

As far as I remember, AR only works with kickstart up to 2.04, and it has problems with the tg68k CPU core. Even in real Amigas it doesn't work with 020+ CPUs. AR was (is) used in the original minimig, so the code and support is already there. I removed it /replaced it with HRTMON since I found no ...

Re: Custom Video Modes Test Thread

i ment that literarelly. i did not know about what exact the fb_size ment and how it is related to the scaler. would be nice to point in the wiki under "what is lag" how that works together. so i now am totally happy with the latency. fb_size=4 vsync_adjust=2 is the setting i go with now on that CRT...

FS (in Germay): Atari 1040 STe - 4mb RAM - Spray Casemod - Gotek inside

I am selling my babe as i need money. I cleaned the board, checked the PSU, painted that thing (with all pre- and post steps needed to do it the right way), build a Gotek with Flashfloppy into it and maxed the RAM with good ones. The system is running perfectly. Tosec is on the SD. The Case was an 1...

Re: ao486

Hi guys. I cant get the ao486 core outputting an analog vga signal that my screen eats. Can someone help? First i thought its the scandoubler option i used in the mister.ini but disabling that does the same. Screen says "H26.7khz V:59.9hz out of range". Would be very cool not to have the vga connect...

Re: Custom Video Modes Test Thread

Ahoi. I got a PC Screen capable of higher refresh rates (up to 100hz @ 1024x768). I really like the screen and my prefered method is just to use scandoubler as there is no latency. But then of course it flickers as it is at 50hz. Is there a possibility to get it running at double refresh so the flic...

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Would it be a ton of work to add Action Replay MK3 functionality instead of HRTmon? I am really missing that tool i got in hardware here. Quicksaving to RAM in games would open a kind-of-savestate functionality for hard games. Even saving memory to disk does not work properly here with hrtmon and on...

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

Do you mean 15KHz video output? Yeah, it is in my plans. There is a problem that I don't have any such capable monitor. So it is a bit difficult to test. But not such a big deal to develop anyway. man that would make me freak the f out :D i got 3 14" sony consumer tv´s for about 10€ each and they g...

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

I really love the core and besides minimig its the most used one. But i am still really missing that pal 15khz mode to use it on the crt. Do you still need something to test it? Do you think it will happen anytime soon? I would be glad to help out. Greetings and thanx for that awesome work!

Re: Minimig (Amiga) core discussion

Action Replay is not a simple ROM. It's also special hardware. You cannot compile it because it's not implemented. HRTMon is not inside the core. You need to provide hrtmon.rom i now tried a ton of hrtmon.roms - only one does do something - but not the right thing. it looks like this: IMG_20181220_...

okay, thanx for the info. ill try hrtmon.rom then. on my amiga 500 i use the ACA500+ by individual computers. with that device i can i can simply chose between HRTmon and AR3 on the real harware and it´s done by software (i guess). so i thought that might work but i was wrong. thanx for the good wor...

If i remember correct HRTMon doesn't like fastmem. So, fastmem=0 should make HRTMon happy. thanks for that tip! checked that but wont work here. i have a KS 1.3 ROM - 512 chip - 68000 CPU - no floppy speed-up - tried OCS and ECS 500 when i press f11 to freeze i get instant power LED blinking result...

hi :) first of all: the core is delicious! thanx for all the work. what would make it perfect for me would be action-replay-mk3 support. i searched this topic for this and HRTmon with no luck. with that support we could do all the tinkering with the mister instead of emulation/real hardware. savesta...

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

Great work on that ST core. It runs fine on HDMI and over VGA on a CRT. Any chance to get it to work on a standard PAL Scart like the C64 and Amiga Cores do? Would be great as i played the stuff on a Philips Monitor back in the Days. Would be great to hear from you. Greetings from Germany.
