Re: [Wanted] Falcon Video Cards

I do have an Eclipse, but I'm currently not using it. It is pretty fast but unfortunately the software (fVDI + Rage-driver) has too many quirks. I'm now using a Nova/Mach64 in that Falcon, NovaVDI is much more solid VDI than fVDI. The Eclipse do have a huge advantage over the Nova though, as it can ...

Re: Alternative to AUTOSORT?

You can have both 2.06 and MagiC in flash-ROM, and select between them with the FLASHSW jumper on the MonSTEr. The ordinary XBoot will work both with MagiC in ROM and on disk, the only difference is that it's not displayed twice when coldbooting MagiC from disk. If you have MagiC in ROM you can *not...

Say I have files A to Z and I want to move Z to just after F then:

Viewing the folder unsorted
create a new auto folder
Copy files A to F
Copy Z
Copy G to Y
That is exactly how Autosort, XBoot and other folder sorting tools does it.

Re: Alternative to AUTOSORT?

The only thing that differs the "MagiC"-version from the ordinary version is that the "MagiC"-version does not run if it detects that it's running under MagiC. This to prevent it to be shown twice when booting MagiC. That also means that it can't be used if you have MagiC in ROM.

Re: Alternative to AUTOSORT?

I have used Superboot but prefer XBoot. It's fast and very userfriendly. With Superboot you have a separate configuration program, XBoot does it all from the same program. I have never used Insaneboot but I can immediately see a serious (to me) limitation in how it works - it can only run autofolder...

Oh, and I have to say that I'm very grateful for your work on the Nova drivers. I'm using it on two different machines now and hopefully on two more in the near future.

Depending on which Linux distro you are using you might have to sudo to read the harddisk device.

VanillaMiNT supports all network adapters with MiNTnet drivers. But you may have to provide your own driver.

Re: Basic install with Hatari 4MB STE, EmuTOS and XaAES

So I suppose you use myaes68k.prg from mini Hatari config, That is correct. I tried 0.97 before I was made aware of your Hatari image, and could not get it to work on my Mega STE. But 0.98 works very well. MyAES memory usage depend highly of the resolution, this small version with ST resolution sho...

Re: Basic install with Hatari 4MB STE, EmuTOS and XaAES

Just tested MyAES 0.98, and it works fine on the Mega STE. As for N.AES I have not tested it enough to say anything about stability yet. Speed is good, about the same as XaAES and faster than N.AES. Memory consumption a bit worse than both N.AES and XaAES, it use around 700Kb more RAM than XaAES wit...

Re: Basic install with Hatari 4MB STE, EmuTOS and XaAES

With MiNT, XaAES, Teradesk and NVDI 2.51 running there is 7767Kb free RAM. On a 4Mb ST that means 1.7Mb free, which is actually quite a lot and enough to run e.g. both PureC and Interface at the same time. N.AES 2.0 is also working fine, but use more RAM (about 400Kb more) and is slower than XaAES....

I beg to differ, more RAM is almost always useful. Especially if you only have 32Mb. I used to run out of RAM on my Falcon/Afterburner a lot until I upgraded it from 32Mb to 64Mb. Compilers and graphics use a lot of RAM.

Re: Basic install with Hatari 4MB STE, EmuTOS and XaAES

Key presses and mouse input is a bit unresponsive but I don't blame the FreeMiNT team for that. It was something about to be expected with multitasking and XaAES without any accelerated VDI. Correct. It is very slow with TOS or EmuTOS VDI. But with NVDI it's very quick indeed, I'm currently working...

Re: How to install FreeMiNT - simple step by step guide

I think, since mintnet is much newer than STiK, most older program will require it. I'm quite sure that it's the other way around. Except for some limited all-on-one solutions with built-in TCP/IP-stack (I can't even remember what they were called now, but there were a few around 1994/1995) MiNTnet...
