That is so weird. I wonder if it depends on the console.
seems like we only need to talk about it.
today I turned the thing on with the TF330 off and voila, it no longer boots. Power led stays dimmed and it's frozen.

Re: TF330 NVram issue

So if you want NVRAM to work, you'd have to accept 40% speed loss (compared with the Burst3 firmware) for now. :P Is this with the TF330 ON and no CF card inserted? If yes, then this is probably a very marginal use-case. Asking because I can't even get to the builtin nvram browser by pressing RED. ...

Re: TerribleFire 328/330 Support (CD32)

That is so weird. I wonder if it depends on the console. not sure. I have a pal cd32, made in aug '93. I think that's a very typical prod date. cpu on the TF330 is a full 68030rc50 though, that replaced an ec030rp40 that crashed quite often with the rev3 fw and no heatsink. the full 030 seems stabl...

Re: TerribleFire 328/330 Support (CD32)

It's working for you with the current (v2) firmware? For me it only works for a few minutes. It does seem to work fine. It was running a demo compilation disk for about an hour with the TF330 off. Not sure about which version I have though. All I know for 100% is that it DOES have the burst mode fe...

Re: TerribleFire 328/330 Support (CD32)

Is there a way to revert to the onboard 020 AND keep 8mb fast+ide ON?
The aca cards can do this via software so I was wondering if this could be done on the TF330 as well. Would that require some special firmware logic?
I know the whole thing can be turned off with a jumper, am using it.

Re: TF330 Performance Improvements

Based on what I've read on the eab forums this is a 030 + Akiko C2P issue rather than an issue with the TF330. (the SX32 should have this issue as well) Turning off data cache or installing the 680x0 libs from aminet http://aminet.net/package/util/sys/Mu680x0Libs is supposed to solve it. I must say ...

Re: The TF330 is here

My fav shooter is Banshee, which is one of the few games on the system that pushes AGA to the limits and is a damn great game. Doesn't benefit from fast/cpu though.

Alien Breed 3D comes to my mind that loves the 030/fast ram combo and is a decent fps - if you can tolerate huge pixels.
