Does Dragonnels demo work on a Mega ST? Or Transbeauce 2?

Post by MasterOfGizmo »

While playing with a "real" ikbd implementation for the MIST we found that the dragonnels demo requires the 68k to be able to reset the keyboard processor when leaving the main menu. But this requires a connection between the keyboards reset line with the 68k reset line so the 68k can use it's own reset instruction to reboot the keyboard.

But on the Mega ST with the external keyboard this reset connection does not exist. Has anyone with a real Mega ST ever tried to run dragonnels demo? It should not be possible to properly leave the main menu there. Can you guys confirm this?

The same seems to be true for Transbeauce 2.
