Holy heck.. EMUTOS is fast on a 030! I swear the floppy is going faster as well...
Woof!

I have been playing around with MAPROM is morning trying to get the " copy low RAM variables to fast ram" working,but basically no luck.


Just for comparison, this screenshot is from before of TOS206 running in fast ram only..

Then running MAPROM which is actually running slower for some bizarre reason... I can only assume it is something to do with the MMU look-up tables which is causing this slowdown.

Each having trouble with the nozzles :( all the ones I have are blocked up and they are currently in your ultrasonic cleaner :roll:

But I have got these new red nozzles.. Problem is these ones are too big for the pads which I am trying to print.. So been fiddling for the past couple of hours to get the pressure just enough to get the paste flowing, and fast enough to get a thin spread of paste on the pad.


The slightly larger pads I am drawing a circle basically on them to get more paste down.

I keep telling people to use EmuTOS but they want the nicer icons of 2.06. :) Which i asked you to put in EmuTOS like back in 2012 :P
For completeness, EmuTOS 1.0 has nicer icons. And it has been possible to change them with an RSC file for a long time.

That requires the ability to use these tools ... i did give it a go but got very lost.

Doh!

I'm taking an enforced break from mine waiting for some CPLDs too. Doing some 68k in the mean time.

I'm too cool to simply order the wrong ones, though. I mysteriously blow mine up just as they start working! :mad:
