  1. @VladR Supplimentary--I've converted Bastian's bll drawtriangle for cc65 and you might find this of interest: https://atariage.com/forums/topic/262666-cc65-for-windows/?do=findComment&comment=3995454
  2. Ok cool, I agree "always be safe than sorry" when handling storage media.😇😇
  3. Sorry for the hold up, Signing in has been changed - now you have to use your Display name, different to how I did it before. I've now managed to build your programmers tools and I flashed a rom.😎 Could you advise me if and how you re-flash a card that's been flashed as I have two test cards I'd like to recover. Thanx
  4. It should be this (the colon : in your command should be there after my username)... Quote If you don't see testboard.sh after checking out the files from Git, then you're on the wrong branch. Do "git clone -b programmer-enhancements" in the "lynx" directory and then "cd contrib/blankcart/programmer && make all". Tell me how you go with that. The hostname issue is to do with networking configuration, but I suspect it's the colon causing the problem. Hi, yes I was following the instructions from https://atarigamer.com/pages/atari-lynx-cartridge-reader-writer-board-software I hope to have another look at it over the weekend. I'll let you know how I get on. Cheers
  5. @Karri Thanks for the quick response. The typing slip was caused by using my windows laptop for posting and switching to RasPi/,. terminal for linux commands. I'm still working on the git problem, though. Make readcart worked (it powered up gcc) . Positron5
  6. Hi, I'm having problems installing the readcart, write and romutils tools. I'm using the retroPie build and I get Unable to resolve host when I run the "git clone -b programmers-enhancements https//:[email protected] command" Also I thought I'd try to build the programmers tools from source but it looks like the makefile in lynx/contrib/blankcart/programmers/ folder is the makefile for wiringPi utilities. Any ideas? thanx
  7. I received mine (half share with Ironworks ) today. Now we will linux up and install the programming toolchain, courtesy of Necrocia and Karri. Many thanks.
  8. Hi Necrocia, Please include me for a pi hat programmer on your order list too. Cheers
  9. @McWill, Hi, I did the lynx2 screen replacement and the results are excellent, thank you. I had the same problem with the controller ribbon cable as others have found which means the voltage test gives no voltage. Just trimming the end by 2mm improves the contacts and solved the problem. The improved visualisation that the mod gives now breathe new life and enjoyment for gamers in the atari lynx. Cheers.
  10. Hi McWill, I would like one of these for my Lynx2 -from UK. Cheers Positron5
  11. This is a part conversion of Bastian Schick's (@42bs) fpolygon.inc/bll routine that I have made to be used with CC65 for Windows. This version draws triangles. I have changed the maths registers names to be the same as the hardware reference notes to make the program easier to understand . I have only converted the triangle drawing part of Bastian's code- which creates larger polygons with more vertices. I am grateful for Bastian granting his permission to use his bll code. Please read the readme.1st file that comes included with the bll atari Lynx devkit of which Bastian is the author and all right reserved. As it stands The resulting object file (game.o) can be run under mednafen emulator https://mednafen.github.io/ . copy the game.o file to the mednafen directory then in mednafen the usage is: mednafen game.o The program waits for the button A to be pressed. Cheers Positron triangle.zip
  12. 2 carts arrived thursday...great work
  13. Website for orders is whitelynx.fi. @Karri , I've placed order for 2 carts, thank you.
  14. Hi everyone. Ive just installed rb+, that's one more crazy jag coder. I hope to learn more about the rules and techniques for jag development. Thank you
  15. Hi Karri. I followed your instructions and I managed to install cc65 for Windows8.1. I hope to play around with the Shakennotstirred game code a little. p.s I put main.c in c:\cygwin64\home\user instead of c:\cygwin86\user -possible typo?. Cheers
