Sometime later, Wolfgang replied with use switch 2 & 3 near the battery to change the resolution... So messed around and eventually managed to get the monitor to almost behave... The other settings it is like images shifted 50% to the right and wrapped around again on the left... This was as good as I could get..
The manual does not really seem to be very helpful
but only mentioning there is a bank of switches, it does not say what any of the switches are actually for from what I can see. It does mention a lot about other switches on the board though...
Next problem is the CF card is not on a PC compatible format
I did a sector dump to another CF card and tried to get HD driver to change the partition type to PC compatible... But for some reason it is coming up with some error message.. Basically it will not do it for some reason.. But the problem is this is all in German not really help either
I did try formatting the card and it did seem to format for a couple of minutes, then it just seemed to freeze and not go any further, and the hard drive light stop flashing and then nothing really happened then.. I could still move the mouse but something was stuck.. I don't know this was a hardware or software bug..
I tried putting in a USB stick and try running detect hard drives to see if it would recognise it, but I have had no luck there either. It does not mention anything in the manual about using the board I think, there is many pages telling you all about it.. At this point I am really missing my floppy drive, I knew where I was floppy's and I could just swapping change and easily. Suska does seem to have a floppy connector but it is not the standard one and I do not have a cable to hook it up.
Also finding there is some odd reset bug somewhere, as when I initially power up nothing happens until I press the reset button. I can't imagine this is by design, sometimes I have to power down and power up and press the reset button a couple of times to get the image to come up..
So I need to work out how to get a regular PC formatted USB drive to work so I can actually copy some software to try out.. Of course I do also need to actually figure out how to flash it with a English TOS..
Of course this is a new computer will take some getting used to.. Though I'm getting a little bit annoyed with it currently
Got this reply just..
The USB is prepared
in hardware but not supported yet. Also Ethernet. All this is documented
in the manual. Ethernet requires a person which is willing to work hand
in hand with a guy (me for example) to adapt the Ehernet software stack
to the core. USB is a topic i am working on. The best solution to
exchange files with PCs is the GigaFile or the formatted CF-card and a
driver software (with HDDRIVER for example).
I did buy Gigafile a long time ago, but the SD card socket broke away from the PCB so I cannot use that
Does not seem to be a proper ASCI connector either, so I cannot try ultra Satan.. So basically I have no way to get files onto this thing
