New Falcon Mach64
version based on V3.01 (English MENU_E.PRG and English VMG.PRG included)
What a train wreck on my part
Wanted to go back in time before testing the new MACH64 drivers.
Have a back up CD from May 2000 with the Afterburner, MiNT, NAES, NOVA ATI MACH64 files, but didn't have the files saved in order.
Found an Extendos sys info text I'd made, saved me
First, a lot I've forgotten.
So basically, loading NVDI is just to get the screen drivers created in a GEMSYS folder?
Use to have them as "GEMSYSV" and GEMSYSN" to keep the video card and VIDEL files separate.
As NVDI is disabled in the auto folder by the NOVA drivers, the fonts are not loading.
Looking at MENU_E, it does ask how to load the GDOS drivers.
Not sure how to do that with what NVDI did with the fonts.
Else load SPEEDOGDOS and select it as the font driver?
Then does the NOVA driver run it independently, or should it execute in the auto folder?
Using an NEC 24" EA241EAM, it should support a lot of the modes included in the latest MACH64 included bib files.
These LCD's sure aren't as forgiving as a CRT, least even my old bib files I know worked well have the LCD bouncing display all over. Besides 640*480 265, 1024*768*256 are about the only 2 settings close to being usable on this monitor. That's using my old bib and MACH64 bib settings.
All that said, IDEK's MACH64 drivers seem to work as they should.
Was a bit confused as to what in the menu option is "Atari video". After a reboot, gets to the desktop, but a white screen.
Before using that mode, do I have to "rename" my GEMSYS folder so the VIDEL screen drivers are active?
Apologies for being a bore. Think I'm struggling with the monitor settings more than anything else.
Have a 24" Sony Broadcast monitor that will handle anything, but have to have a neighbor help reposition it, weighs about 80lbs
