  1. How are you with SMT MACH CPLD? (ex, Afterburner040).
  2. Sometimes the file will need to be byte swapped before burning. When you load it into programming environment, TOS 4.04 first word should be 602e. If it reads 2e60 or else, you need to do a swap. I have CGYWIN on a PC, and use dd. I can send a 55ns Amtel with 4.04 when I send the COMBEL.
  3. Pretty sure all C-Lab did was to reutilize stock. They fiddled with hand picked DAC's, noticed those replaced on 4 different C-Labs I've owned/own. Interesting with the MKX, if indeed they stripped Falcons out of the Atari branded cases, or just sourced a quantity of motherboards. If the first, they should of been an excess of standard Atari cases you'd think. Here's a odd one for you😁
  4. Apologies, even though a small community, big internal foot print The CT60 (68060 accelerator card for the Falcon) comes with a small set of soft tools. One is a patch tool to update xcontrol.acc for 68060 compatibility. Over time, Atari had updated the file. Roger Burroughs (ExtenDOS) mentions an issue in EmuTOS where his solution is to use a later version of it. That's just an example for using a later version. Short answer I guess, find an online archive containing the disk that came with each machine. XCONTROL contained on the Falcon disk is the last version from Atari. Don't know the specifics of what is patched using the patch program included with the CT60, may not be necessary in your instance. Just pointing out there are a few versions of it, it's known to cause issues in some cases. I know, I talk too much
  5. For xcontrol.acc, use the version included with the CT60 package. Its been patched. Mikro's GitHub page has the file and description. Don't think it relates to NetUSB.
  6. Been many years since using the HDDriver demo. Think one of the limits use to be only SCSI ID 0 was supported to boot from. That drive may pre date me Generally SCSI devices don't (and shouldn't) need to be formatted, only partitioned. On an Atari, even a 10mb drive would take ages using AHDI.
  7. Have the SwiftCalc package, no indication of the version. Currently can't install to verify.
  8. Hehe, these are cropped phone shots of the menus on an old LCD. The quality is pretty good on a proper display. Messed with most any and all converters, for the price it's pretty good. If you want to spend more, guess the OSSC is a good option. Have a Sony BVM-D24E1WU outfitted with a few input cards. Has maybe 120 hours on it, just haven't gotten around to setting it up. It too is a monster. RGB there, without a converter is as good as it gets.
  9. Have 2 of these units. They must have a small modification done internally, but work quite well (subjective) with the Falcon and Jaguar, including audio. Recently purchased an OSSC, yet to setup. Here's a link to the post here. https://atariage.com/forums/topic/249091-falcon-scartrgb-to-hdmi/?tab=comments#comment-3439455
  10. Yes, added that up for you Since the start of this post, as everyone else that has been around for years, have taken in a lot of knowledge for all different types of Atari hardware. During the "Great ST Purge" of 2015, and since, have downsized significantly. 3 Falcons and the Milan remain. The worse part is, since 2008, have learned to write at most 2 or 3 lines of code So many here are fluent in language. I can type up a storm, that's about it. Happy with the 2 CT60 setups. Aquirred 2 years ago an Amiga 040-060 adapter, same design as Michaels. Without diving into the IC replacement beneath the CPU of the Milan, haven't been keen on going back to troubleshooting it. I'd found a good thread of all that's involved to have the Milan running well at 20mhz buss on the German Atari forum. Currently reworking hacks done to my original 1994 Falcon over the years. Had a scare, after socketing the NVRAM, failed to boot the diagnostic cart. Turned out I'd only tacked the socket in place After resolving that, she lights up just fine. All the pins from the past that were cut for the Nemesis install have been socketed, like the ACIA'S. This allows an independent and much cleaner solution to providing the 500khz via oscillator to each, as well as a smaller smt 48 DSP clock on the underside. Currently working 2 68040 PLL clock drivers into the system, one setting at the SDMA clock input, and other for expansion and COMBEL distribution across the board. In the past have toyed with overclocking the FPU. It becomes unstable around 40mhz. Being not of sound mind, and not sure what caused the direction, discovered the FPU (and 20/22mhz bus) settles down using a 64mhz FPU clock. Think Exxos mentions this, at a much later date than I'd discovered. Not sure if we were of the same mind, or he actually read through one of my book post I did it again! Too much brainstorming. Last notes I have from Doug Little, he pointed out the clock driver on the AB is only rated at 70mhz (35mhz BCLK) and felt that could be leading to stability issues running the AB over 44mhz. Have a supply of 100mhz IC's, will be using those to test soon. Where I'm kind of at is all this will still require fly wires across the board. An eBay seller that had some interesting 90 degree ISA card mounts said he'd be willing to make a custom board of my layout to resolve this, as did Frank Lucas. Just need to sit down and lay it all out once the AB is back up. I'm visualizing an expansion pin supported narrow PCB, with onboard oscillators, Vcc, and pick off points next to critical clock line placement for the VIDEL, SDMA. Wondering, without a scope yet, if an inverted PLL clock from the drivers can replace the traditional Falcon clock patch. Currently in a holding pattern. I'd offered to setup my spare CT60e and SV for another member on Atari forum and aid troubleshooting. He's not yet replied. User has been having no luck with Insanes CT TOS and his e for a year now. That offer will expire shortly And where is Jen's? Haven't seen him post in some time, and always become concerned when an Atari user that is legacy to the platform just drops off.
  11. Some years ago sold most everything other than a couple Falcons and associated hardware. I was a subscription freak, but those too all were sold of. Thanks so much for saving all this Aside from a bunch of cover disk i never go around to parting with, have one issue of Atari Computing August 1997 from a subscription I'd ordered for my mom. After she passed in 2013, I'd found it packed away, unopened Now living in Oregon, wonder if any of those early folks are still around. Steve's Computers and the magazines produced in the area.
  12. $20+$15 USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Medium box. 10 lbs. US shipping only. Update: I'll throw in another EZ135 to go with your other Atari, Mac or PC with SCSI to transfer between machines for another $10 + shipping, allow another $10 shipping, the other box is packed full. Just let me know if you want it when replying. PayPal works best. Realize this is fairly dated hardware, then who here doesn't own something dated. During the quad annual Atari room clean out, selected 16 EZ 135 removable disk as items to go to the thrift store, leaving me with 8 disk and 3 EZ drives. Thought about the "hardcore" stock 520 and 1040 ST users, decided first to make up a small "package" for offer. If you are working with half MEG of RAM, TOS less than 1.04, this will make life easier in some ways. Using ICD Pro (and a SCSI host adapter of some flavor) you can use each disk as a 135 MB bootable drive, with 16 different installation on each. Takes all but a reboot (if used as a bootable drive) and 40 seconds later working in a different customized environment Would be my use anyway if that was an only setup. So many ways now to use "modern' storage, this is the way it "use' to be done. Included CD Recorder Pro, which uses floppy in drive protection. Think this is not the latest version, but it's manual is at least in English, purchased from System Solutions via Toad Computers. Not familiar with Sound Lab, reading the docs noticed something about compatible with a few different ST sampler carts, Replay 16 was one. It's serialized software, don't know if it's copy protected. SCSI Tool and HUSHI are both in German, ordered from ASH via their old BBS system. They may or may not be revelint today. To use the EZ135 drive, an ASCI to SCSI adapter is required (or TT/Falcon), cables. The disk are currently partition as 135mb BGM. Maybe 2 have not been setup. Thought I'd check in, save someone a trip to the thrift store Don't think I missed anything
  13. (pending pickup) To good home. Both in good working and cosmetic condition. Think both Goldstar, with integrated 13pin cable. Shipping in the US cross country guessing about $40-$45.00 each, but would need a postal code for exact amount. Located 97439, Oregon. Pick up ok, make it short and sweet, no meet up's, won't hold. Need the space. Going to Goodwill soon. PM with interest PayPal only please.
  14. USB just for storage? SCSI CF reader is faster than any USB for the Falcon , network connectivity included if using a SCSI EtherNet device.
  15. Know this is just adding to a "market place" item, which should go to another topic https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tomy-Tomytronic-Tron-1981-Tabletop-Arcade-Game-with-Box-Manual/222710074817?hash=item33da8e0dc1:g:FoUAAOSwvApaAWhI I cleared about $40 on both units. Personally, I'd rather find a working boxed Zero-M Sonic Blaster. But that's just me.
  16. Have had them for some time. Been narrowing down the "vintage" hardware for a few years. Sold all my ST/STE/Mega's and peripherals. Still have 8 Falcons and a TT. I checked on ebay at the prices those were selling for, and I'm just so tired of doing ebay figured about 30% would be a fair price. Hate paying their fees. Saw a Tomy Tron that has sold for $65 not long ago, and 17 people watching a Zaxxon. I've paid way more than most any of the hardware I have a sane (fiscally responsible) person would. Did get a decent deal on a CLAB Falcon Mark 1 not long ago for $800, which by Falcon standards pretty good. Bought a Mark X last year, don't even ask.........
  17. Was late to the game when Jookie's products came out. Didn't really follow all what they offered, having a Falcon didn't think much of it. Now I'm looking how to connect a P/S 2 or USB keyboard to the Falcons Sold my DEKA last year, but those type keyboards are hard to find in good condition now. zp_manchester on ebay has a nice setup, looks like they sold out pretty fast. Today sent a mail if they would soon be available, I could use 8 units
  18. Have 182 (unless I mis-counted one or two) Atari ST Public Domain and Cover floppy disk I'd like to sell and pass on. If you're an ST user without external drives, tired of copying or searching the net for old simple programs and games that will work on early ST's and TOS 1.02 these might provide many many hours of Atari fun. They've always been stored well, all the metal disk protectors are fine, all the printed labels are in good condition, did see one loose. However it's been years since I've looked/read at any of them. Guess there could be risk. They are all 720K, dated from around 1985 to around 1992. Asking $36.00 + shipping. 10 lbs, think these can be shipped media mail in the US - 48. Would appreciate anyone with interest getting an estimated shipping cost in the US on their own (i'm trusting). Shipped from Zip Code 97439. Allow for at least a 16" long x 10" wide x 10" height. Will ship outside the US, however USPS only ships Priority Mail International. 10 lbs would cost a bit. FEDEX and UPS would be more. No local DHL. PayPal Please PM and I'll go in that order, whomever pays first. Do NOT pay until confirmed and you have the correct email account, different than on the board. Who knows where it would go to. Sound reasonable ? Thanks! A run down. Cover Disk: 33 Start 2 ST Review 2 Atari Inside 2 Atari Computing 23 ST Format 12 ST Informer Others 15 BRE 8 ST X-Press 1 ST-Log 1 Accusofts ST 2 ST X-Former 2 Original Atari ST Utility Disk 13 GFA Artist and other GFA drawing packages 1 Marpet X-Tra RAM utility disk ( disk only,came with the cards) The remainder are about 33.3% each of the below Commercial Game Disk (all early ST games that should run on 512K or 1 Meg ST's) Back up's of Commercial Games (not necessary the other included game disk) Back up's of commercial software Maybe .001% blank label (who knows) Maybe other copied programs, utilities and stuff, pretty much a full mix PD mix from print drivers to games.
  19. Have had these displayed for a while. Would call them in good used played with condition. No deep gouges, they do have scratching. Both units need a good cleaning, Zaxxon has some sticker goop to be removed. Both work, didn't see anything wrong with operation, buttons and joystick feel good. Battery boxes are clean. Nothing broken. Decals on the Zaxxon are starting to separate from the adhesive, decals are in very good condition. Sold as a pair, will not separate. Looking for $54.00 (odd to cover box, wrap, tape) PayPal Will be boxed, bubble wrapped in a heavy duty Home Depot box, 16x12x12, 6 lbs (est). Please use the USPS website to calculate postage from zip code 97439 to your shipping address. PM to express interest, first come that pays, first served, so on down the PM list. Prefer to sell to a member on atari-forum or atariage board.
  20. You want to be #2 on the list? Did you peek at the atari-forum link?
