Re: Sell old machines

Apparently, Atari SA used to be the French division of Atari so this sounds like a big deal :D

Coincidentally I just got Visual Studio Code for YAML stuff for work, so I will have a tinker since I expect it is a little simpler than full blown VS
It's an excellent editor, no exaggeration. I love it.

Re: Atari ST C Dev under Windows

This way you won't have to start the Pure C editor, it works by simply double clicking the .PRJ file. If i understand that correctly, that works by firing up steem, passing some options. Maybe you can achieve similar things by using a similar tools (a Pure-C project parser) that i wrote some time a...

Re: Atari ST C Dev under Windows

- I build the project in an emulator, using the Resevoir Gods' PUREBOT tool, which in turns uses Pure C. Funny, did not know that such a tool exists. Looks a bit complicated to me though, and from what i can tell after a brief look, it does not handle path names correctly. and also does not handle ...

Re: Atari ST C Dev under Windows

Just to clarify: this doesn't mean you can't code, compile and to some extent even debug your Atari code with Windows/Visual Studio. Just the PureC part must go away. It's totally possible to setup Visual Studio (or any other editor/IDE) calling your m68k-atari-mint-gcc, catch its error messages et...

Re: RGB pattern generator circuit

I'm doing some test pattern research, trying to figure out what patterns the adjustment instructions from my monitor's service manual (Commodore 1084S-P1, Atari SC1435) is referring to: - Purity - White frame - Color bars - DEM pattern The first three are fairly obvious but I can't find any example ...

Yep the old CSYNC vs H + V SYNC chestnut...

Glad you got it sorted.

Eventually I will need one of these devices when servicing my old Mitsubishi Megaview 37 and Aydin Ranger CRTs.
Yeah, so many pins available and still they didn't provide separate H/V sync pins.

Re: RGB pattern generator circuit

I'd love to build an enhanced version one day: - no SCART but 9 pin DIN (purely aimed at 15 KHz RGB monitors) - no SCART means no more 12V required so the power regulator can go as well - enhanced patterns (does anyone have a good source for official pattern generator specs?) - 'official' TV test ch...

Re: RGB pattern generator circuit

By the way, I still have two unpopulated PCBs and a few 21.3 Mhz crystals laying around. If anyone is interested in building this circuit, I can mail a PCB and a crystal for P&P only. The other parts should be fairly easy to come by.
