Re: Suska board

Maybe IDE doesn't work with DOS partitions for some reason.. but ASCI does :shrug: Is the SD card over an IDE bus? Then yeah, those need to be byteswapped for TOS and will then not be visible to the PC. Unless you run a patched TOS that can boot from non-byteswapped media. ACSI doesn't have that is...

Re: Suska board

From what I can tell, the CF card Wolfgang supplied as a demo version of HD8 on it. I can do a 1MB partition with TOS box selected, and Suska will boot to desktop that way..BUT.. If I format as DOS & TOS , still doing the same 1MB partition, Suska just comes up with four bombs after the Atari logo ...

Re: C103414 - STFM 4 x SMT DRAM

Looks like the designer assumed data bus would have resistors like the address bus. Same spacing, right?

520 STFM 256kx4 DIL to 1Mx4 SOJ

I recently acquired a 520 STFM (IMP chipset, 4 DIL RAM chips, see https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=749 ) which I wanted to bring a bit more up to spec. Adding four 256kx4 would've brought it to 1Mb - but replacing the existing four 256kx4 with 1Mx4 would take it to 2MB in total...

Re: Suska board

I've just had a reply from Wolfgang saying that the chosen FPGA cannot run _slower_ than 16MHz*. While I don't understand how this mean the cores could've been tested in-situ during development, it definitely means that very few demos (and some games) will run correctly. It's possible the VHDL could...

Re: NEW MSTE/TT & ST PSU ? (well not really)

I must confess, since the ST already has an external power brick I think a picoPSU is the best choice there. I desoldered the exising power connector, put a picoPSU internally and it supplies the 5/12/-12 in ample amounts to also be used for other internal mods like an HxC slim etc ... Of course, th...

Re: Suska board

He keeps asking me to extract the files on Troed's Closure demo. I keep telling him he won't let me do this It's not about letting ... there are no files :P It's true old school track loading. There exists no filed debug version either, I use all memory from $200 and up so bye bye TOS after the boo...
