Interesting how the internal keyboard is just wired with two cables but the external gets all.

Re: Blitter question TOS 1.62 - TOS 2.06

I started to Google around (of pure curiosity) to see if I could find a reason to why Blitter is off by default in 2.06 and on in 1.62, but found no answer at all. I guess the reason is TOS 1.62 is STe-only, so it is guaranteed that the machine will have a Blitter, while TOS2.06 is mainly for MegaS...

A600 hangs on 320x200 Graphicstest

I've got an A600 with leaked capacitors. I've replaced the capacitors and repaired tracks/vias I've found to be corroded. Amiga seems to work ok, but fails on Diag Rom 1.2.1 Graphicstest Testscreen 320x200. It hangs for 20-30 sec. on black screen and displays a screen like this (there should be mult...

Component Video (Y, Pb, Pr)? Are you sure? All STEs, except french (SECAM) ones, have RF output, and Composite Video.

Re: Anyone suffer with Allergies ?

One day I'd eaten fresh pineapple and thought "That's stinging a bit". Looked in the mirror and my tongue was bleeding! :lol: That's nothing special. Pineapple juice is a pretty strong acid (pH 3), so when you eat too much fresh pineapple, your tongue will always bleed. I don't think it has anythin...
