Jumping back to Franks' bob test program going funny viewtopic.php?f=24&t=46&start=190#p7843

I got a email back from Frank..

I’m not blit waiting plane to plane. I’m assuming the blitter will hog the bus and lock out the CPU while it is active. It's a bit nasty and it is relying on timing of the CPU/blitter.

So one of those "timing dependent" things (like raster etc) it seems. So all is well again :)

I am going to try and start building up some boards today...

Made a start on a batch of 15...

People with OCD should not look at this image :twisted:

You really should try harder to align all of the edges of the boards :dizzy:

It's the one that's incorrectly rotated that annoys me :mrgreen:

Surely it's all but one is the wrong way around? ;-)

I don't like the gap between 1st and 2nd of the middle row :-P

One thing I noticed the other day which I need to look at the bit more.. Was that HD10.01 driver crashed on boot up in 40MHz mode. I am not sure if anything else was loading in the AUTO folder.. I need to check will not had chance yet..

Basically when HD10 loaded it would bomb out. You'll thing is if I booted in 8MHz mode it would all load fine, and then the driver seemed to work fine in switching back to 40MHz mode. I emailed Uwe about it, he says it works on other machines like the Milan etc and that there is no timing dependent code in HD10..

So if any of you guys with this booster can try it out, really just load the driver from the floppy, and see if it bombs on boot or not.. I will try and do this myself bought I'm going to be busy today some other stuff..

EDIT:
The driver might actually loaded from my ultra Satan... Can't remember now :roll:

Will try and give it a go this weekend from Floppy.

I don't suppose you have a link to the file do you? Still an STe newb here.

I have an ultrasatan but only the correct cables for a Mega ST.
