Re: Anyone have it? know it?

I have a plcc puller but these chips are not friendly.. anyone know a good puller for these Atari early plcc chips? I got mine out by buying a PLCC puller and then filing the ends down a bit to make them thin enough to get under the edges. Once you can get the fingers in underneath them they seem t...

Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

There might be a way, if I remember correctly, where the HDMI-board could sit pass-through between the motherboard and the original STE GST-MCU. Yeah, I also think it's doable. Instead of emulating the shifter it'd just read the RGB output pins, hsync, and vsync, and act as a traditional scandouble...

Re: Hello / Bonjour

Great to see more developers getting interested in retro programming! I'm looking forward to seeing what you create - and which tools you decide to use.

Re: True 16MHz Mode

Mono can do 640x400, but I assume would need a new shifter to cope with moving that to 4 and 16 colours. The shifter doesn't care what the resolution is, only the colour depth. It's the MMU/Glue controlling hsync, vsync, and the number of shifter LOADs per line that decides the video frame paramete...

Right, I was only mentioning it because you were talking about wanting to increase the vertical density rather than the horizontal. Since 400 lines is already possible, I assumed you meant 800 lines vertical.

Re: True 16MHz Mode

You can only double the horizontal or vertical rate though - and 640x800 seems just as silly as 1280x200. Although 1280x400 in mono might be alright, it'd have the same weird aspect ratio as medium rez, only with a font that isn't designed for it. If you really wanted to get an 800-line mode, it cou...
