#4076336 SDrive-MAX ATX support

Posted by Kyle22 on Today, 6:36 PM

The remove ROM at $C000 message is to prevent the user from using OmniMon or similar debugger to hack the game. It also means it won't run on XL/XE because they have ROM at that address. The stock 800 has nothing there


#4075968 MiniPro TL866 Upgrade Instructions

That's what happened to mine. I flashed it from CS to A and it worked great until this update. I'll try the reset link above and see what happens.

I don't know how to get it onto the bricked device, though.

In this pic it shows that it uses the ili9340 chip set which isn't on the supported list.

The ili9341 is what most are using.  Looking at the board info,  there are a bit of differences between the two...

Not sure if it will work with the ili9341 flash files or not.

Well, I bought it before I read those posts, so that's why I was unhappy at first. I received the device today and it works beautifully.

 

A slightly larger screen would be nice, but this whole thing was $17.00 USD. I have it temporarily housed in a cigarette box (NO, I DO NOT SMOKE TOBACCO!) which I got from a friend. I didn't bother with the diode cause I don't have one. I'll put it in eventually.

 

I like being able to report good news. :)

I used the batch file in the English zip from this thread. I didn't change a single thing, I just ran the bat.

 

Here's the pic.

#4074820 1088XLD - Custom A8 Computer in 1050 Drive Case

Posted by Kyle22 on Thu Jul 19, 2018 7:50 PM

Is there room for an XF551 controller and even a 3.5 drive? It sounds like a squeeze, but it would be fun.

 

Edit: Or in true XLD style, a PBI floppy controller... :)

I received the Arduino today, and it looks like it works. I haven't attached the SIO cable yet. I may do that tonight.

 

Am I correct that the command line goes to Analog In A5? One of the diagrams above had it on Digital PWM PD4.

#4073880 8-bit Cartridge Label Project

Posted by Kyle22 on Wed Jul 18, 2018 6:55 PM

I used hp photo paper and then CAREFULLY stuck clear packing tape on it. Make sure NO air bubbles, or you have to print another and start over.

I then used a glue stick to attach the photo to the cart shell.

 

The tape protects it and gives it a shine. I used flash so you can see it.

I never thought of Antonia and Rapidus users as 'outlying fringe'. I consider them 'power users'.

I use a CH340 Serial device under Windows XP 32. It works perfectly if you have the driver. Try this one.

#4073060 handling RTS/CTS handshaking on R: devices

Posted by Kyle22 on Tue Jul 17, 2018 7:06 PM

Why not design a simple, cheap R:Verter interface that uses a joystick port to provide the additional flow control signals? Such a device would be very cheap to produce.

 

R:Verters have no speed limit, they can go as fast as PoKey.  A small addition to the handler for a small RAM buffer, and code to toggle the joy port for RTS/CTS.

 

Edit: I mentioned this before, why hasn't anyone responded to tell me why this won't work? That makes me think even more that it WILL work...
