Re: Atari 1040 STe Drive Swap Mod Problem

You want to keep W300 and W301 in the default positions, so you have a DS1 signal on the pin 5 of the DIN-14 connector. This table above (by DrCoolZic) is correct, the one from the beginning of the topic you mentioned is wrong. However, it looks like both your drives are selected at the same time. H...

Re: Atari 1040 STe Drive Swap Mod Problem

Then switching Gotek to DS1, and/or verify if you have the default settings for W300 and W301 jumpers on the STe motherboard. Motor On signal is not used by Gotek. Gotek only cares about Drive Select signal, and by default expects it on pin 10 (when set to DS0), while STe sets Drive Select B: on flo...

Re: Atari 1040 STe Drive Swap Mod Problem

Sorry for a half translated post, it is corrected now.

Pin 5 on the Atari 14 pin external floppy connector should be connected to pin 10 on the floppy drive connector, and the floppy drive should be set to Drive 0 (FD0/DS0).

Re: Atari 1040 STe Drive Swap Mod Problem

How is your drive select 0 line wired? To pin 5 or to pin 6? It should be connected to pin 5, and pin 6 - left unconnected.

Re: Atari 1040 STe Drive Swap Mod Problem

How is your external floppy/Gotek set? It should be DS0, same as internal floppy. Do you use Gotek in a SF3x4 case or you have some custom cable for it?

Re: Lattice ispLEVER Classic now costs $$$

If the free licenses were time-limited, then nothing can be done. Autodesk does the same with Fusion 360 and Eagle. Now they are free, but licenses are for one year, and then have to be renewed. No one knows for how long the renewal will remain free :(

Re: Lattice ispLEVER Classic now costs $$$

I don't know how it is in US, but I believe that in UE, if a software was ever released under a free license, you can use that release with its original license as long as you wish, no matter what license changes were made to the latter releases.

Re: 4Mb MMU Socket Upgrade questions

If you don't cut the power from it, they will still consume a decent amount of power and produce heat. So I think it is worth to remove them completely (or just cut their power line as it is easily separable).

Re: 4Mb MMU Socket Upgrade questions

According to other reports it is enough to unsolder the big inductor (L1 - left edge, just above the DRAMs and a big axial capacitor) which powers the DRAM chips. I know it seems bad to leave unpowered ICs on the bus, but apparently it works fine with DRAMs.

Here's a test version of the "Fast Bobs" demo for Blitter equipped Atari STs. Please let me know if there are issues on real hardware.
It runs fine on my BLiTTER enabled 1040STfm.
