Re: ST RTC EXTERNAL BETA - WIP

Okay I figured it out... :roll: When I run AUTOFMC it flashes up the message (which goes too fast for me to read it) but after several tries it says " clock is not running, please set it"... So loading the program, clicking "READ" pops up a box saying the clock is not running... So I have been taki...

Next I need to try and work out where I got to with the RTC boards...
I thought you had a board designed and had some PCBs to make up?

Re: STFM case remake

That looks pretty amazing, what material and resolution are you using and what is the print time at that scale?

Interesting use for a 68000

I happened on this video today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcifHi2SE-0

If you get about 5 minutes in, it's a 68K at the heart of this device :)

Re: 4MB STFM RAM SIMM ADAPTER REVISED

There is detail on the resistors here: http://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/ram/index.htm If you look at the 4th picture down it explains what you need. To save you some time they are 68 ohm. I would suggest that soldering the pins indirectly is your best option, based on the install guide here: ht...

Re: CPU Strangeness

RJ, I know you are part of the Testing to destruction crew but please leave the weird breaky things to me ok :lol: Good luck with the other board, don't ya just love loose connections. If I was deliberately breaking stuff, I'd be right with you, but I'm not! Just weird stuff going down, just madness!

Re: C103253 REV.5 - STFM 1MB Upgrade

Weirdly it now works with a CPU from a CO70789 board that it didn't work with before. All these CPU shenanigans are just insane. Welcome to my world ;) I know we've had these conversations a few times now, but I am quite honestly surprised that any of your boosters have worked under these condition...

Re: C103253 REV.5 - STFM 1MB Upgrade

Right, finally the boards up and running with a normal CPU, so this job is back on, hopefully I can get on it over the weekend since it's a bank holiday.

Re: CPU Strangeness

Right, so the C103253 board no longer works with it's original CPU, but it does work with the CPU from the CO70789 board, which it didn't work with before. The the C103253 still works with the PAK though. Everybody feel free to have their head explode. I need to pull the CPU from my donor board, see...

Re: exxos blog - random goings on

Will they be going in your shop or reserved for your own PSUs? They will be going in my shop shortly. They are intended for my own PSU's (bit shorter than the originals). Damn me and my weak will, I just fed Harry again, 2 PSU leads and an IDE interface..... I am so weak and have no will of my own....
