Re: New Falcon a lemon?

TOS 4.01 alone doesn’t qualify for "pre-production". My regular bought Falcon (admittedly an early one), from a local office supply dealer in a 300k city in the southwest of Germany … had TOS 4.01.

Re: 68040 machine

Its a Quadra 660AV and includes a Motorola 68040 @25Mhz and a TI DSP chip. Apparently this model also includes some decent DMA chip. It sounds like it could be used as a souped up Falcon. Cant wait to see what it can do. Thats where the problem is. There is absolutely no hardware manuals that deal ...

TF for the Atari ST?

Hi, I’m trying to get my head around the different options and status of the development, but weren’t terribly (pun! pun!) successful. I’m looking for an accelerator that should work in an Atari 1040STF (DIL/CPU is socketed already), that gives a decent speed increase, some ALT-RAM and IDE. Which on...

Re: Second CPU for audio processing?

How much would a low-end ARM SoC package cost? Would it be easy to integrate? Use a Raspberry Pi Zero as the ZX Spectrum Next does? Vocore2 : complete MIPS computer, 128 MB RAM, 580 MHz, USB, Ethernet, GPIO, under 10$: c. 2x2cm It could be used for much more than just audio processing: (un)packing,...

Re: Adapted games: what makes them incompatible at >16 MHz?

so why it wouldn't work on the CT2 where the only difference is 030@50 MHz? What exactly are you getting when you run it? 'Doesn’t run' isn’t really the most information-overloaded error description :-) A black screen? Garbled graphics? Unplayable controls? A message saying "too many MHz, will stop...

Re: 4mb STFM with accelerator - was there an equivalent way back when?

I don't remember seeing a lot of accelerator cards for the ST in magazines or anywhere else.[…] I think the professional market was just lost out on. For the MegaST there were plenty of accelerators advertised in ST magazines in Germany. The AdSpeed, the Hypercache, the GE, ... most of ’em 68000/16...
