I was thinking TOS 2.06 works fine with the 030 CPU Cache and the L2 Cache on a PAK68/3-030. So there must the TF Firmware wrong?
I believe this is correct as well.

Re: The ST TF536 software compatibility list.

I know its been asked before.. Though IIRC I verified @Darklord PAK 030 TOS with proper TOS and it was the same.. Though I know I did the same with my PAK but it was a 020 version which came from @frank.lukas . I think Darklord thought it was patched but it actually wasn't.. but can't remember now ...

Re: The ST TF536 software compatibility list.

If it involves any questions about the Pak specific TOS 3.06 modified version, you guys should really get Holger Zimmermann involved in this conversation. The man is amazing. When I first got my Pak board with no TOS version and I contacted him, he was happy to make an English version that would wor...

Re: The ST TF536 hardware compatibility list

@Darklord possibly, its a shame as its the format I like the most but as said, after I've repaired them they are absolutely fine. Good to go then. :) When I got this particular Mega ST that runs DarkForce (my BBS), it was a 2 megger. Upgraded it to 4 megs and added an AdSpeed accelerator. Since it ...

@Darklord for me they have suffered from a lot of corrosion on the bottom of the board but once that's sorted its my favourite ST to use. I've got three, two good ones and one that the floppy refuses to work on.
Wonder why was there so much corrosion? Less than desirable environment?

Re: The ST TF536 hardware compatibility list

Those lucky enough yo own a "working" Mega ST (let's face it, they are fickle unreliable creatures) will have no problem with the above. Oddly enough, every Mega ST I've ever owned have been solid machines and super reliable. The Mega ST4 that I use to run my BBS is dated 1987, although I did repla...

Re: The ST TF536 hardware compatibility list

Although I am still an undetermined but long distance from closing the whole thing up again, I can confirm the TF536 appears to work fine in the Stacy, with some work. Making it actually fit in there is an exercise left up to the reader, and requires at the very least socketing of the CPU and remov...
