OK.. It appears that I can't read! 😁

I must've read the 1.40 in the AES bit... Plus that other thing saying it was 1.04... Think I'm reading too much into stuff... And as I think I still need my posts moderating I'm getting a bit flappy...

I was a bit confused by it appearing to be 1.04 as I thought I'd read somewhere it didn't work on ste's...

Maybe I should just focus on one thing at a time... 😁

Might even try to sort my gotek out...

I've removed you from moderated users :)

Actually someone did try TOS104 on a STE last year and said it worked.. pointless as the STE Extra hardware would not work, but proved a point I guess.

TOS 1.04 is for address area $FC0000-$FEFFFF, while 1.06 , 1.62, 2.06 are for $E00000-$E3FFFF . So, no way that you put unmodded 1.04 in STE and it works.
And you must perform some initializations of STE specific chips, otherwise may just freeze.
I can test my improved 1.04 in Mega STE, but it's reassembled for that different address space + there is some extra code to set STE audio DMA registers + Mega STE registers .
There is 2 kind of people: one thinking about moving to Mars after here becomes too bad, the others thinking about how to keep this planet habitable.

I think AlanH was the one who mention this on AF. He said he surprised it worked, I never looked into it myself, just saying what was said there last year or so.

Yep. Details are what is important here. I usually don't like to base something on what I saw somewhere. Maybe I just don't remember it well. Or more likely, that was not exactly well written .

Ahh... As I've noticed a lack of PayPal and I'll need to negotiate with the Mrs about purchases...

Soldering isn't much of an issue for me... So if I decided to get the dual tos board and the 32hz mod would I need anything else first?? Or would I be better doing something else too??

PSU re-cap is good idea first, higher speeds need more stable PSU.

Hmm... My Last post isn't here... Must not have posted it...

So to check... The blue boards have the multi tos chip included?

So that's:

£45 for the booster
£25 for English tos switcher board (is there a benefit for ntsc??)
£17 for the psu recap kit...

Are these in the UK or elsewhere? If so what would approx shipping be?

Cheers bud!! 😁 😁 😁
