Re: There be Glitters!

I've bought many different chips from Best and the delivery has been prompt. A lot of other items that I've tried to buy have been out of stock though. It's hard to know what's available. Seems like all machines and larger parts are mostly out of stock. What's making it worse though is that they lim...

Well maybe I mean RGB. But I don't have an RGB cable as I always use VGA, a lot of demos don't support VGA.
If your VGA monitor can handle 15kHz, the 3in1 monitor adapter in exxos store would provide what you need.

Re: Falcon Csync video fault.

Ouch, ouch, ouch! This is an awesome find! Seems completely insane that a mistake like this has gone undetected since the STE though. Have to have a look at it myself...

Re: Falcon issues

I don't have anything like an oscilloscope. That is way past what I can do unfortunately. Have you managed to get at least a partial refund from the seller? Clearly this is a non-fully working computer which would be pretty obvious to most users. If you want it repaired, best is to find somebody lo...

Re: Falcon issues

Tried the demo, just a black screen. Sounds like the DSP is not doing too well. Do you have an oscilloscope? Check and see if it has a proper clock signal. If it has been accelerated at any point, the clock signal trace will have been cut. Perhaps somebody has fiddled with accelerating the DSP at o...

Re: Falcon issues

If you didn't get any percentage for the DSP then it probably failed the test. Here's another test you can do: Go to this page: http://nb.atari.org/main.php?page=productions Download and run the Maggie 24 Intro. It has a small 3d dots intro (with a New Beat logo) that uses the DSP (with the host int...

Re: exxos IDE interface (untested)

Looks awesome! Great work! How much space does the board require? Will it still be possible to use the internal keyboard in its regular position?

OK nevermind...

Oddly after I closed the files and reloaded them, the problem objects vanished :shrug:
Hopefully just some kind paint artifact but scary. It freaks me out when things like that happens in PCB software.
