In Topic: ST/Amiga Mouse adapter for Jaguar Gridrunner & Defender of the Crown

Thu Nov 15, 2018 12:47 PM

Hello Guitari!

 

Got it back Gummy - thanks so much! However still no joy  :(  I get a shakey movement on the mouse config screen of Impulse X whereas before it was dead. But not moving now as it should. This is selecting both Amiga and ST mice.

 

In the "Controller Configuration" screen of Impulse X you need to set two things:

  1) The "Rotary Device" type, in your case set this to "Amiga mouse".

  2) The "Adapter" type. Unfortunately MacRorie didn't post the pinout of his PCB, but judging from the photo it seems he is following the pinout that i published in the 1990ies. So the proper setting for this adpater should be "ST M. Adapter M.Domin".

 

A wrong combination of "Rotary Device" and "Adapter" will show the effect of "shaking" when you move the mosue, but the mouse buttons should usually work.

 

Hope this helps

Matthias


In Topic: Memory Track issues

Tue Oct 16, 2018 12:46 PM

Hello!
 

I didn't find any threads about the Memory Track in here to feed off of. Would this sound like an issue with the Memory Track itself, the games themselves, or perhaps the connection? I have this plugged into the cartridge slot on the CD unit which is plugged into the Jaguar itself. Like I said I can hold OPTION and access the memory track and see the saves, they just don't load or work properly when trying to play the actual game so I assume it is not a connection issue.

 

FYI: Instead of OPTION,  hold down 2 while booting Impulse X and you get my "Memory Track Manager Remix" loaded. It works similar to Ataris original MT Manager, but has some enhancements like displaying the content of a file or transferring it to a PC via serial connection. Browsing through the file content may help to track down the problem.

Kind regards
Matthias


In Topic: Games that benefit from the Pro Controller

Hello!
 

Impulse X uses the shoulder buttons to move the paddle faster left and right.

 

Impulse X - The shoulder buttons increase paddle speed in either direction.


This isn't correct, the shoulder buttons of the ProController (or buttons 4 and 6 on all controllers) just work the same as Left and Right on the thumbpad, they don't have different speed values than Left and Right (however, you can combine them with C to double the basic speed).


Kind regards

Hello!

Here it works, but I'm using Skunkboard Rev2


Thanks for your feedback, it encouraged me to run another test, by removing the CD-Player.
Without CD-Player the SCINV.ROM worked, then with CD-Player attached again it did not work (as before).

Kind regards
Matthias

PS: All tests were done using a K14-PAL-Jaguar but withboth 50Hz and 60Hz.

Hello!

Thanks for the invitation! Too bad that SillyVenture and the Euro-Jagfest do collide again :(

Unfortunately the SVINV.ROM doesn't work for me (black screen, no sound), i flashed it to my Skunkboard Rev 3.
