Re: Tony's Random Atari Adventures

Right on, PhilC The attic is finally cool enough to work up there for about an hour. This week: I soldered on all the headers on my MiST HW. No sense in being caught out. I recapped the MegaST's P/S yesterday and I had great success. It was fine practice with the Hakko desolderer. I'll do some more ...

Re: Tony's Random Atari Adventures

Hi PhilC Sorry the @mention grabbed the wrong Phil. ;) I will follow your lead. I have an Atari Floppy so I may skip the pullups. Floppy works fine now. Was my stack of board/socket/tos decoder/socket/tf536 the same as yours? TY for the hint of using the diag card with a 68K in the system first. I'l...

Re: Tony's Random Atari Adventures

Hi philbo34 and anyone else , I received the TF536 in the post today. I took these pictures of my megaST so I can show what I have and what is to be done. 0. I will recap the MegaST4's power supply. 1. The entire motherboard: I will measure/possibly replace the bus resistor packs. image0-3.jpeg 2. I...

Re: Tony's Random Atari Adventures

Received my exxos store order. Received a machined socket that I ordered before I placed my exxos store order. The attic is cooling down. Progress on altered MiST video port: Decided to make the alternate resolution be 1024x768. Reassembled the driver. I did a simple replacement of the H/V resolutio...

Re: Tony's Random Atari Adventures

I got a really nice Hakko desoldering gun and the practice will be with that on a board I can tear up. Then I'll put it to the STs. I bought enough SIP resistors to do the "normal things" to the STs that I can use for the experiment. One of the 1040s will give up its components for the (eventual) H5...

Re: Tony's Random Atari Adventures

I rebuilt the 7a code; the result was a couple of small changes that didn't produce a 100% working boot_rom.soc. I was able to get the right messages to the screen but the "petite fat filesystem" code didn't get along well with the SD card. I can't tell what's wrong at this point. I moved on to the ...
