  1. Wash your hands before typing, Guillaume.
  2. Hello, I've just changed the 3.6V battery of my TT/MegaSTE. Now the time and date are saved again. For those who want to replace their old battery, I found mine on ebay: https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Pile-Lithium-3-6V-AA-Tadiran-SL760-connecteur/114146508997?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 It is the exact connector that plugs directly into the TT or MegaSTE mother board. Guillaume.
  3. They talk about Windows 3.0. It would be surprising that Win3.0 doesn't run as I've been able to install it on the Supercharger Emulator (XT 1MB emulator). Guillaume.
  4. Thanks for this topic. I once replaced the fans of my TT with more silent ones. But they don't seem to last long and they became noisy. I didn't know the Noctua fans, I will try them ! Guillaume.
  5. Hello, With the new version 3.35, I wanted to show the main features of M_PLAYER with videos. Video Tutorials They are in french with english subtitles, made on a real TT. On the M_PLAYER's page, you'll find the new manual (up to date) and the software itself: M_PLAYER page with manual and software Enjoy, Guillaume.
  6. Hello, Here are ma pages: Several Atari installations (TT, Falcon CT060, Mega STE): https://gtello.pagesperso-orange.fr/machin_e.htm Software: M_PLAYER (video player, disassembler and maker for 68030): https://gtello.pagesperso-orange.fr/mplayere.htm MP_STE (the same for the STE) https://gtello.pagesperso-orange.fr/mpste_e.htm COLOR_TT (desktop enhancer for TOS 2.0x/3.0x): https://gtello.pagesperso-orange.fr/colortt_e.htm ST_DESK (desktop enhacer for ST/STE): https://gtello.pagesperso-orange.fr/colorste.htm And several others... https://gtello.pagesperso-orange.fr/downld_e.htm Always with doc + source code. Kind regards, Guillaume.
  7. Hello, Can you make a DIR on the G drive? Can you TYPE AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS to compare with my setting? Many thanks! Guillaume.
  8. hello ! I can read "Loaded External Disk Driver for Drive G" I don't have this driver here... Can you tell me what file is it? Why is it different from drives C to F ? Guillaume.
  9. I have had a Supercharger for many years now. I patched it a bit to make it run on the TT with a graphic card. Now I can run it in 800x600 and be able to display the HERCULES resolution of 720×348 in full page. I also played with the clock generator to push it to 10MHz. I have written a page about ma setting: https://gtello.pagesperso-orange.fr/supch_e.htm The Supercharge can also be used as a coprocessor and work in parallel with the ST. Guillaume.
  10. Hi all, Lots of aspects of M_PLAYER were not clear, the documentation wasn't up do date and dispatched ins everal TXT files. After 24 years of darkness, I found some time to redact a decent User Manual in PDF that covers every aspect of the application. Play a video Disassemble a video Convert a video Create a video Calling M_PLAYER from another program With examples and screen copies. You can find it here! https://gtello.pagesperso-orange.fr/mplayere.htm Guillaume;
  11. Damned!! That's a good chrono ! So, you'll be able to test one of my programs with RXB! (the first in the list) I have put three programs in this ZIP, all allow to save the current state. The second one even saves its current random seed. DSK1.PIXBALONE That uses only Extended Basic, full precision RND, 34 seconds for 200 points. Speed = 5,88 point / sec DSK1.PIXBLIKE Thats uses MLC, but simulates the full precision RND, 34 seconds for 1000 points. Speed = 29,41 point / sec DSK1.PIRANDOM Thats uses MLC with its fast RND routine from 0 to 4095, 15 seconds for 25000 points. Speed = 1666,67 point / sec DISK1.zip Guillaume.
  12. Yes you're right! I meant that with the same seed, the two lists are equal. That was to prove that MLC simulates exactly what XB does. And... as MLC is not concerned by RANDOMIZE, but uses the boot seed of the TI, you must reboot the TI to be sure that the seeds ar the same. I don't know if I'm clear... 😐 Guillaume.
  13. Hi all, I have been able to recreate with MLC (using its inline assembler) the Extended Basic RND routine. You can see on the left the value from MLC and on the right the XB RND call. They start with the same seed (so, you must reboot your TI before), and the list generated is the same. Then... If you try form the command line FOR I=1 TO 1000::A=RND::NEXT I The XB function takes 72 seconds. And if you try: FOR I=1 TO 1000::CALL LINK("RANDOM",A)::NEXT I MLC function takes 46 seconds. And for the same result with the same precision ! Download the ZIP file, put everything in DISK1 folder and load DSK1.XBRND to test it. DISK1.zip Next work... Calculate PI with it! Guillaume.
  14. Ok thanks! I got the method... I can simulate it in assembly. But, isn't there a way to call this routine from assembler without rewriting it? Guillaume.
  15. Hi, Sure ! You're right. But MLC can do FLOAT operations. The lack is that I can see no call to the XB RND function from assembler. Else, I could try to program a faster version with MLC. Guillaume.
