Re: Devpac debugging tutorial

You would maybe need the Devpac MonST reference card,real handy with all key combos.Cant find it in a quick search?..Maybe no one scanned it and uploaded? Have a own made one in my old 'docus' computer.The manual is out there of course.(3.10)

Re: LZH or ZIP

LZH within Atari world but ZIP including all bugs,its not just ST-zip with its old style,with the rest since everybody got stuck with some form of 'zip' packing.

Re: MROS not found!

That has to do with memory allocation,it has actually not to do with finding the file itself.Cubase does a bit trickery with MROS since atleast in Cubase Audio it is loaded into high ram.This is done via allocating all memory and then shrinking with about the size of MROS but when launching MROS as ...

Re: Using the Falcon's expansion connector

[*]25MHz CPU + 25MHz alt-ram: mostly stable So tt-ram start to swing out at 120nS cycles? Given if using DSACKx termination?

Re: Using the Falcon's expansion connector

No latches, but deactivating the RAM clock one half cycle before output is valid holds the data. That lets me assert DSACKx at leisure. Embarrassed to say this was actually causing my locking up. I must have misunderstood the data sheet. Delaying the clock hold by one cycle stopped the hangs at 16M...

Re: Using the Falcon's expansion connector

To be honest, the SDRAM is causing me enough headaches* at the moment that DSP is filed firmly in the 'later' camp! BW * SDRAM works fine when both it and the CPU are clocked at 16MHz. If either are clocked differently to each other it fails. I don't understand why, it should work with asynchronous...

Re: Using the Falcon's expansion connector

When (if) I get the AltRAM stable, the last big headache is the DSP. Currently it's simply disabled as I haven't yet had time to fully investigate how it communicates. I know there are issues with its interrupts, but I'm not sure what they are yet. I did fix a bug where I hadn't realised it was an ...
