Re: Viking board on Mega,ST

From DOIT_ST: The viking card is made by Atari for the SM194 (ECL 19' screen) with DB9 connector. It plugs in the 68K MegaBus and uses a driver sm194drv in 1280*960*monochrome, NVDI can be used with it (NVDI4, version 5 not tested). The empty socket is for 68881 FPU. I would guess the same ECL to VG...

Re: Just bought a U S Atari Mega 4 for $240 US

It does have an expansion card. Could also have an internal HD. They do exist. Ya, I agree its possible but based on the sellers "couldn't test" and 2/4 meg case parts begs the question has much was the seller drinking when he heard the hard disk spin up? Its much more likely that he heard the flop...

So the seller must be hearing things since the mega st doesn't have an internal hard drive. :o :o :o

When looking at the board does it have 2 or 4 meg of memory? :?: :?: :?:

Re: 16BIT ROM CART THOUGHTS

K, here's a very alpha GUI version of my Powershell script. Make sure you have the files to be converted in the same directory as the executable. You can select either 64KB or 128KB. I have not coded any safeguards if the file is larger than the image you are converting to. Expect crashes. Otherwise...

Re: 16BIT ROM CART THOUGHTS

Some time ago I was asking about possibility of preparing ROM versions of YAART and SysInfo, but with no response. I only know, that it is impossible to just put an PRG file on a ROM.
