Re: S-Video/composite board for Atari STs -- great for STFs

That looks good - when you move the cursor around, do you get de-interlacing artifacts like on the Gonbes upscalers?

How about attacking stupid people, now that would seriously benefit mankind!
Attacking smokers would also help with the litter problem!

Would suggest to translate it to english and put the english text in to this wiki ?
Instead of translating it into English, we should all learn German, since we're true Atari fans!

Re: Wiki thoughts..

Trying not to drift topic here.. but I can open up a sub forum, and you can copy all information over to that sub forum which is relevant to your project if it helps ? I'd prefer some type of wiki to be honest, but anything would be better than nothing... has anyone mirrored the content of the exis...

Re: Steem site vanished ?!

This is a real pity. Steven seems like a great guy and he helped me out with information in private as well as on the forum. I use Steem SSE for all my testing because it's an amazingly good piece of software. I feel bad that it was on my project's thread where this all went downhill.

Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

The "stabilizer" clears the extra words that would otherwise be left in the Shifter for next scanline, yes. At the beginning of the scanline the switch to HI is done to make the GLUE start the line earlier than it would've otherwise :) That's how you "open" the left border. For more information on ...

Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

Yeah you should display black when mono is set on an otherwise color line, and you can ignore what happens after the stabilizer has run. Actually, in detail, the stabilizer skips BLANK start and the line is then displayed for a few more pixels until HSYNC kicks in which again means nothing should b...

Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

Also, for those who are not keeping up (me mostly) are you saying during a normal video low output the shifter switches into high res.. Or is that just a trick demos do for some reason ? It's not during a normal screen mode, it's done by this program to avoid the end of the scanline, because the po...

Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

Nope :) At cycle 444 when the switch to high resolution happens the real Shifter indeed displays black until the switch back to low happens. This is actually the reason why ULM chose to use medium resolution for their stabilizer instead (from cycle 440) since that doesn't happen. This is so far out...

Re: Project: HDMI/DVI out for STFM

The Shifter switches to the mono output pin and not RGB when in mono mode, effectively displaying black during that time. The Shifter does have it's own copy of RES but it takes effect "immediately" (4 cycle aligned). You might be interested in some signal captures I'm doing at the moment: http://a...
