Hey, in my book a broken Atari is preferable to a working windoze machine every day of the week and twice on Sunday.. :) :)

So had a little bit more time this afternoon.

And I think I have a dodgy STF board. no Vsync on either the MMU or Monitor port, which explains why I'm struggling to get a picture. All metered out and it goes to the first via and promptly disappears into the abyss.

So I get to do two more patch wires than the rest of you :P :lol:

Now that will have to wait till tomorrow. Then back to seeing what else I didn't solder correctly.

I'll connect it as the schematic for now, so not a problem. Afaik it's glue 38 to monitor port and then to 51 on mmu.

It's all a learning curve.

I assume you did the vsync fix ? As I think it went via a inverter before..
