Re: kodak80 progress

Small update, Board #1 is now alive again after re-soldering the NO BLITTER jumpers and removing the Bliiter chip. So it is back to booting TOS but not seeing the floppy. I have also tried re-soldering the WD1772 but this did not help. I tried removing the NO BLITTER jumper solder a 2nd time and got...

Re: kodak80 progress

Board 1 continues to be a problem child. It now has a blitter fitted but it now shows a long row of bombs on a white screen. Will need to find some time to diagnose and may put this board on-hold for now as I am very busy at work. Board 2 (my fully working board) now has a working blitter. :D IMG_20...

Re: kodak80 progress

Have not had time to work on my two boards recently so no real change for me except that I now have the extra 3M PLCC sockets and 2 blitter chips from Best arrived today. Will see if I can spend time this weekend to get these fitted. :)

Re: DMA port "update" ideas..

This may be another source but not PCB mount: Thanks, it could be possible to bodge them in with a adapter pcb or something I guess... Yep, that was my thinking. Would need some right-angle pins and maybe a 3D printed plastic block to have the pins go through with a couple of square nuts on either ...

Now waiting on blitter chips ordered from Best Electronics as they were the only supplier with stock. Also ordered some Atari Crytal oscillators from Best Electro...

Re: Hxc vs flashfloppy

I think what you need to look for is the .HFE disk image format. Both FlashFloppy and HxC can use this format for protected disk images. HFE version 3 now supports a large number of disk protection mechansims. Quite a few .STX disk images can be converted to .HFE format using the HxC Emulator manage...
