Re: MiNT 1-18-0 broke my Milan Keyboard

Thank you for this tip :) I can confirm that N.AES is working with the current 1.19 on both my Falcon/CT60 and my Milan060. Keyboard is working correctly, and the system is again working at normal speed.

Re: MiNT 1-18-0 broke my Milan Keyboard

If I try XaAES, can I still use Jinnee for my desktop? You can, but personally I would advice against it. Jinnee is really written for MagiC, with TOS/MiNT compatibility (sort of) added later. I've had nothing but trouble with Jinnee (with both N.AES and XaAES), which is sad because it's a really f...

Re: MiNT 1-18-0 broke my Milan Keyboard

Btw I just tested on my Falcon/CT60, N.AES behaves exactly the same there. So it's not Milan-specific.

Re: CT60 memory test strangeness

Does it work correctly in 060-mode if you skip the memory test when booting? If it does, then it looks like this is "just" one of the CT60e's quirks. True problem is CLOCKPATCH I doubt that. This behaviour is 100% reproducible on my CT60e, and it's definitely triggered by the TOS TT-RAM-test. I susp...

Re: MiNT 1-18-0 broke my Milan Keyboard

Ok, you're using N.AES and not XaAES, that's useful to know. I have not used N.AES since 2006-2007. I can confirm that keyboard is not working with N.AES and the 1.19 kernel, just tried this combination now on my Milan. But I'm not sure if the keyboard is the real problem here, the entire system is ...

When I run Shutdown, the messages go to the screen instead of a window.
Completely normal, as the console window is a GEM application and is one of the very first things that is killed during a shutdown.

Re: CT60 memory test strangeness

I have a very similar problem with my CT60e. If I let it boot uninterrupted (i.e. letting it run all the memory tests and then boot) it will boot into some sort of ST-mode. ST-High resolution (red on white), if I attempt to start some Falcon-only software it complains that this is not a Falcon. Afte...

There are two kernels in the AUTO-folder in that archive. mint060.prg which is 368937 bytes and mintmil.prg which is 367832 bytes. Are you saying that both are for the Milan? In that case, why two?

Re: MiNT 1-18-0 broke my Milan Keyboard

Ahh, I forgot about that. But I would atleast remove the non-Milan kernel from the auto-folder, even if it just exits gracefully there is no need to slow down boot and clutter the screen.

Re: Recording audio

Yes, mono is fine. With the video connector, do you mean that what goes out of the output labelled "Television" on the STE, I mean the connector where you connect your STE to your monitor. Your cable should have one or two RCA leads that you currently connect to your monitor sound input, connect th...

Re: Recording audio

I guess you're using an STE. The phono output on the STE is unfortunately way too loud for most domestic audiogear. If you want to record in stereo you need to lower the output using a pre-amp or simply a voltage divider (to resistors per channel). If mono is OK then just pick up the sound from pin ...

Re: Atari STe SD card reader on the Extended Joystick Port

Yes, it would work, but speed would not be impressive. The printer port tops out at around 100kb/s on fast machines, a lot less on an ST. Then divide this by eight, and then by three again when bit-banging SPI.

Re: Does an Atari STE need maintenance?

What tzok says. I have not "recapped" any of my ST's and they are still working just as fine as the day they left the factory. I would look into replacing the PSU though. The stock PSU generates quite a bit of heat, which is bad for the case plastics. I've also had a couple of PSU's that stopped wor...

I have a couple of these, I have tested it briefly on my Falcon but only via the serial port. It is very easy to access files on a USB-stick using this module. I have not tested HID at all.

Re: Atari STe SD card reader on the Extended Joystick Port

the idea was to make it cheap with parts that you can already buy. Why not a CH376S breakout board ? It's cheap, has USB and an 8-bit parallell interface that you can connect directly to the jagpad-ports or printer-port. There's also a lot of easy to understand examples of how to use it out there. ...

Maybe possible, but definitely a HUGE job. If SATA is important it's probably much easier to write a driver for a PCI SATA card.

The STE doesn't bot from floppy (goes into a loop), but it can read the content after booting without disk. When opening a Txt-file, the content is partially read correct partially you have also this cryptic mess.
But yes, a corrupted TOS is not unlikely.

Re: Atari STE: Drive A: diplays files with cryptic extensions

Well, unless this STE has had this error since day one, something has changed/broken that causes this. If the resistor mod makes any difference it does not *fix* the problem, only works around it. What's broken is still broken.

I have dma c0259-13-38 This *could* be your problem (the "bad DMA" myth is not a myth), but I find it highly unlikely that your STE has had this problem since new. "Fixes" like the termination resistors, HC CPU etc that has been mentioned are just workarounds for the real problem. Whatever that is,...
