Recently I've been playing with my favorite Atari, the Falcon. I've inherited it from my dad, who in the mid 90's was a big Atari fan, and also an electronics technician. He installed a BlowUP FX in the falcon and 4MB of RAM which I'm sure at the time was all he had handy. The BlowUP FX always was a little flaky, and would crash or cause strange artifacts when the Accelerator was on. Because of that I mostly stopped using it.
Recently I've spent some time re-learning how to set up an Atari properly, and have started playing around with the BlowUP. I installed the 1.7 drivers which are easy to find online, and lo! The Falcon is rock-steady at up to 36MHz!
Anyway, long story short, in my investigations online into the BlowUP FX and the software, I learned that there was a rumor of a newer driver which would allow the Falcon to use RAM over 14MB as TT FastRAM, but no one knew for sure. Well, in my dad's stash of floppies I found the 1.9 drivers!
The README file says it was a pre-2.0 release, and that it allows using RAM over 14MB as TT FastRAM, as well as a few other upgrades. My dad was in contact with the engineers who made the BlowUP when his install didn't go as planned, and they sent him the more recent driver for testing.
I would like to release this so it can be preserved, but I don't want to get in any trouble either.
In testing on my Falcon it seems one of my SIMMs is likely bad, and that might be what was causing the issues I saw before, so I can't really comment on how stable the 1.9 drivers are quite yet, but I've got them.
Would posting them here be appropriate?
