Re: DEVPAC 68881 required error

EDIT: Also I wonder if the combination of 68040/68881 is even allowed in Devpac, considering that the 68040 has a builtin FPU. I guess it's harmless - there isn't a 68881/2 instruction which isn't allowed on the 040 (natively or via emulation). IIRC there is only one or two opcodes which have the s...

I used to want a cosmosex, but now that the netusbee has proper usb drivers and supports keyboard and mouse I don't see the need for it anymore... Unless there's something I forgot.
Games, maybe? You can use NetUSBee's mouse/keyboard only for system applications.

Btw Ube - great idea, love it!

Re: STE DAC FPGA issues

Personally, I don't find the possibility of breaking the system so terrible if it would be possible to always reuse the original ICs (to gain 100% compatibility). If you decide to use FPGA alternatives then yes, one gain is the ability to run the ST(E) on higher speeds but the far more important gai...

So I don't really get the confusion ?
Oh, now I get it. I totally overlooked the fact that the reference ST doesn't have a Blitter! Thank you for the detailed explanation.

Re: True 16MHz Mode

I wanted to ask earlier but seeing the Falcon numbers made me nearly sure... don't you find that 1000% blitting increase suspicious? Now, compared to the Falcon, it's just a little over 100% (what I find believable) but what I certainly don't find believable is that Falcon has a 1000% faster Blitter...

Re: TT030 replacement case fan and where to connect

DONT just plug it straight in. You will be able to plug just the +5V and GND pins of the socket into the connector to power the fan. Here is a picture of the pinout of the Noctua 3 pin so you only plug the red and black part of the socket in and not the yellow. Why 5V? Isn't the fan linked in the p...

Re: Problems with Mint

Yeah, it should run on the ST as well. As mentioned, try to strip it down, ideally to only MINT.PRG without any modules.

Lesson learned. I just wish it wasn't exactly this way but could have been worse.

Re: What on earth is this?

Perhaps I should have specified that this happened out of the blue, i.e. the PCB had nothing even remotely similar there before. I simply started desoldering and it appeared like a plague. :) Bad news - the pad is indeed gone. Good news - fortunately that pin is not connected. Still, never seen anyt...
