Re: non-socketed CPU

How so, besides buying a different board? ;) Think you might be better doing that to start with :lol: Just seems like a lot of things could go wrong there. I would think it would be better to not use the riser and my funky adapter, just seems like a lot of soldering and connections. You would still...

Re: Hello

:welcomewave: Colin :)

Making room for more Atari's is always a good thing ;) What do you plan to have ?

What kind of hardware/software was you involved in then ? I don't know much past the "ST" range myself.

Sounds like a plan :)

Re: non-socketed CPU

Really? Even over the socket/socket plug solution? What am I not seeing? Point being, your overall idea was to fit the booster ? The socket solution would be better *if* I had a plug in booster, which I do not. So this rules out the socket ideas totally as there is nothing to plug into it. So if yo...

Re: Mixing different PSU valued capacitors

First off, congrats on your forum, Exxos! You've done a great job :D A treasure worth of information! Thanks and :welcomewave: My question is about mixing "old" (the capacitor values used originally) together with the "new" values (those suggested on your PSU page). I've bought all the values sugge...

Re: unknown ST Overscan circuit with 7400

This sounds like Lace Scan ? or a variant of. I know some people were talking about the not long ago, but can't remember the conversation. Likely one of these old skool mods.

STFM VIDEO SYNC FIX

It seems to be a common problem in recent years of the STFM not being able to sync correctly on a TV or monitor. I have seen several machines over the past couple of years suffering with this problem and it took a while to track down. A example of this sync issue normally arises upon boot where the ...

Falcon ROM Wait States (Speed up your falcon ROM)

FALCWS.JPG A lot of Falcon's had slower ROM's meaning Atari had to use "wait states" in order to slow the ROM access speed down. You can however update the ROM with a "Fast ROM" as sold in my store and update the solder links on the falcon to use the faster ROM access speeds. This will give your ma...
