Re: ST keyboard only partly works - any ideas?

I'd also check the caps for bulging on the top. If there are any like that (doubtful) you'll need to replace them. I'd say the problem definitely lies between the key pad and the keyboard encoder. Like Simbo suggested, use a multi meter to check for continuity. Keep in mind though, you will need to ...

Re: FPGAARCADE Minimig/ST compatible board, comments?

I don't see that TV, composite or S-Video out is much necessary now. I don't agree with that at all. A lot of demos and games don't look right on computer monitors because they were made to take advantage of TV hardware. Simbo > Were you drunk when you typed all that? I'm really surprised by some o...

Re: New SainT version in the making...

Would love some form of drive sound emulation via fdrawcmd.sys, ala WinUAE.

Once other things are sorted out of course :D

Re: FPGA 68000

Be realistic. EVERYONE interested in the Atari ST has a second computer. It long since stopped being a "useful computer" and now brings joy and nostalgia to those who used one when they were younger through it's applications, games, demo's and programming challenges. Very true. Though it would be n...

Re: Keyboard

If you're unlucky it'll be a broken track.
Pretty hard to imagine it'd be that, but an easy fix if so.

Does it feel different to the other keys? I.e. spongy or non-responsive? Might just be a shifted rubber pad.

Re: kbdbabel Classic Keyboard Converter Project - STFM?

I may then program one of my atmega8s and see if it works. Can't hurt to try!

I wonder if the joystick would work as keypresses then? The ST keyboard controller uses it all as similar data outputs to the 68k if memory serves.

kbdbabel Classic Keyboard Converter Project - STFM?

I just stumbled upon this project: http://www.kbdbabel.org/ It seems to convert most old keyboards to normal PS/2 protocols via an AVR. While PS/2 is a dated technology, USB is an incredibly difficult one to understand so since most computers still carry this port it's better than a kick in the pant...
