Re: German forums

Unless its a translation error.. it does seem like the plug is being pulled how I read it... Johannes went into more detail and clarified some points in https://forum.atari-home.de/index.php/topic,15385.msg243261.html#msg243261. There is the option of someone taking over the forum (incl. history). ...

Re: German forums

Although -- unless you know more than me -- it's not certain that it'll close down. Until end of February 2020 the current admin and the moderators will deliberate if someone should continue the forum as-is. Imho, that would be the best option, because it would preserve more than 15 years of history...

Re: An Atari ST HDMI All Resolution Solution??

He's asked me to check it out upon receiving it, even if I want to send it back, because he wants honest feedback on it. Since he (or someone else?) has deleted all post on Facebook so that people over there can't see the presumable source of his VGA2HDMI converter, anymore: Did he in the end answe...

Re: An Atari ST HDMI All Resolution Solution??

True, but not in this case. That's the whole thing that's different about this one, at least according to the creator. This isn't a simple pass-through like a lot of the cheap VGA to HDMI devices you see on ebay. From the box it looks very much like this one, which you can buy for 7 - 9 USD: https:...

Re: An Atari ST HDMI All Resolution Solution??

Usually, though, a VGA-to-HDMI adapter doesn't do any scan-doubling, i.e., the horizontal frequency stays at 15 kHz even on the HDMI side. So you're still left with the problem of needing a 15kHz-compatible monitor, only now you need one with HDMI. See the posts in this thread: http://atari-forum.co...

Is that register part of the blitter though ?
No. It isn't. It's in the GSTMCU (Glue & MCU) part of that chip.

Re: BLITTER revisions ?

BUT, there is another doc 2 years later, 4082 The files are dated end of 1986 (4021), 1988 (4051) and 1989 (4082). Rather conspicuously the GE-manufactured Blitters are marked "(C) Atari 1987", the ST-manufactured Blitters are marked "(C) Atari 1988" and the IMP-manufactured Blitters are marked "(C...

Re: BLITTER RE-CREATION THOUGHTS

I don't want to disappoint you, but you'll need a way bigger device than a 128 register CPLD to fit the Blitter. Even the halftone RAM alone takes more than 128 registers.

I just saw this, there does not appear to be much to it. I am not sure if you can use anything other than a graphics card, I cannot think why not!
Just for fun I once ran a SoundBlaster ISA card in such a Nova VME adapter. (Obviously I had to write the software for that myself.)
