Re: Wanting to upgrade a 520 ST to 4 MB

What happened when started is I got 512k in bank 0 and 2048 in bank 1 - RE-reading showed me.. I did not disable the ram. Since this machine only had...

Re: True discussion MegaSTE vs MEGA with Pak68 et al

SO where I was going is.. Yes MegaSTE potentially could be better.. but DIP to PCLL aint happening. MonSTer is not happening at least for now. People dont plan on boosters, upgrades etc for the MegaSTE - VME buss being the big plus. Now that I have the mega4 - I could go PAK.. and I do have the opor...

Re: The tidy-up begins

Thanks for all the responses guys. I have been on the board watching and following bits and pieces for the last 3 years. I passed on the Alpha.

Re: The tidy-up begins

Hey guys.. I would like to ask here because its away from other conversation about it. Is the H2 board fully usable? Where is the best read to figure out what I need to build it? I have a 520ST and 520STF.. that could be used to go to this project. Otherwise I assume a BOM. I see in another thread t...

Re: Nova GPU- cards

Well I put the offer in and it was accepted. Cheapest ISA Mach32 in a while. But as said in other threads it would be the future pipe dream to just have a new made for the machines adaptor. that fit inside and looked neat and clean. But until then. :)
