Re: Suska board

He keeps asking me to extract the files on Troed's Closure demo. I keep telling him he won't let me do this It's not about letting ... there are no files :P It's true old school track loading. There exists no filed debug version either, I use all memory from $200 and up so bye bye TOS after the boo...

Re: LED's and using the right colour for the right Atari ST Model

Yeah these are missing from the table. 1040STF with red led, might have long button drives but not always, and I think all of them are 8.01MHz CPUs (since they don't need PAL color clock)

Recapping floppy drives

(a.k.a, bring back the dead) I have two piles of floppy drives in the closet. One of drives that no longer work, one of working drives. Usually I try really hard to source Epson 340 drives so that I can move the front bezel and eject button from the dead 380 to them, but after a while I run out of d...

Re: When is a ST not a ST anymore ?

it was only the 260ST and 520ST{F}{M} didn't have the blitter, the 1040ST{F}{M} did have one, it's still an STFM, just with the option installed. Umm no. Some STF(M) motherboard revisions do have solder pads for a blitter, but no socket, and the same motherboards were used for both 520 and 1040 jus...

Re: C103175 REV 1 (520 STFM)

This looks a lot like my C103414-001 board. It has the same IMP chipset, layout is similar only on your board the memory is through hole. On my board, the memory is also SMT. The pinout of those DRAM’s should be the same as on mine, only the package is different. On my board, we’ve removed the 256k...

Re: When is a ST not a ST anymore ?

BUT. if we ran at exactly 200% speed "across the system" then demo coders can likely tweak software and use the same tricks again.. So while a booster will break stuff, timings are exactly 200%. So software can be fixed, and we still have the option to run compatible software on a accelerated machi...

Re: STE V1.5 32MHz BOOSTER - STATUS

May be it's time to build a small CNC out of a broken 3D printer :) and use something like a small stack of acrylic sheet glued together after cutting them to make a fake CPU. Just thinking out loud here :) Rodolphe A friend of mine has a 3D-printer sized CNC, AFAIK it wasn't very expensive. He's e...

Re: When is a ST not a ST anymore ?

What does everything think ? I drew the line at the CosmosEx, but I'm fine hanging a USB host on the ACSI. Also, if something it's 100% compatible then I don't consider it "real", so while the Suska might be (I don't know) the MiST isn't. I would be all for replacing _some_ of the custom chips with...
