  2. Found the logs, cleaned up to have just the PLATO stuff, here they are: https://pastebin.com/2E429mfK I first connected on January 7th using TLP, took me a bit of fussing around with a sniffer to figure out that shift+SUB sent the right code to do what should have been shift+STOP and actually get logged in. I had trouble reading some of the screens though, because the color codes got in the way a lot.
  3. Well, I'm glad to see much has been accomplished already since I initially logged in to my account back sometime in january (account created the 7th, probably logged in 9th or 10th, I'd have to check the IRC logs). I guess I beat you all to the first signon from an (unfortunately emulated) Atari in 35 years I would like to be able to use the 800XL, but my 850 is 150 miles away... Hopefully somebody can hack in support for disk loaded R: drivers, and then I can figure something out (or else I might have to see if the APE trial will fire up in wine or a VM). Also, I guess I'll see if I can get my group changed to the atari one.
  4. OK, well the only other way to go about this is for me to start building from various commits and trying to narrow this down. I'm not doing that now, I have to get some sleep and move my stuff down at school tomorrow, I can't get around to it until next week at the earliest.
  5. Ray's SIO2PC is just an FTDI chip, except that it has the VID/PID changed. This prevents the normal FTDI drivers from detecting the chip as an FTDI serial converter. Somewhere on Ray's site, I think there is the program to set the VID and PID back to the normal ones so the FTDI drivers will recognize it normally.
  6. what kind of serial SIO2PC are you using? I don't suppose you happen to know if it requires DTR and RTS to be in a specific state? the behaviour of these lines was changed between r3 and r4.
  7. Also, which handshaking method? Are there any messages in the log window? Lastly, we changed the method of serial port selection in RespeQt with this latest release. Please try selecting a different serial port in the options menu, save the settings, then again select the correct serial port in the options menu, and save the settings again. I don't remember off the top of my head how the serial port selection works in handling invalid settings in the configuration file, but it's possible there may be two entries in the list which appear to be correct, in which case you should attempt to use the other one. That's really the only change I can think of that would cause this, is that you're not successfully opening the serial port. This is why you need to post the contents of the log window, there may be an error about this there.
  8. The Atari SIO bus is what's known as 'open collector' on the RX line (device --> Atari computer). This allows multiple devices to use the line without interfering with each other. The diode is a kludge that converts a normal push-pull signal into an open collector signal, and is generally good enough in this case. Without the diode, the FTDI can drive the line high and, if it drives hard enough, prevent the real disk drive from communicating.
  9. Not to mention, these *are* atari *computers* we're talking about here, dunno why you are all trying to use them on TV's anyway
  10. What, you mean you don't like writing drivers? I figured they were your favorite thing in the whole world, based on how much time and effort you put into APT drivers, for example.
  11. well, I also meant the text above each button, and the text on the lower part of each button. You also need to be reminded which is which there.
  12. How much will you pay me? PCB design work usually goes about $100/hr.
  13. yes, that looks great. At least the graphics appear to be more than capable, I'm assuming this is just a mock-up? EDIT: I know it'd be difficult, but it would also be great if we could get some color in there for the orange and blue f- and g-shifted functions. it's a bit hard to tell them apart otherwise. Maybe there's some kind of trick that could be used? RE-EDIT: oh, this is the GUI thread, so there's not really a way to do any of that planned for the GUI.
  14. Two, actually. Top and bottom are each one layer in PCB terminology. We need some stock 'The More You Know' graphic on this site or something....
