  1. Maybe it's a power problem. Can you try powering the FujiNet from usb while it's attached to the atari? Measure the SIO 5V line voltage at the FujiNet.
  2. Forgot to mention the next revision will be using the ESP32 module with 16MB of flash storage. This gives us more room for code and SPIFFS storage. We ran into some issues when adding bluetooth support which uses a lot of code space.
  3. I verified the case fit on my 400 which measures ~19mm from SIO port to Power switch and it fits. The SIO Plug is dead center on the FujiNet and is long enough to bottom out in the SIO port on all the systems tested. The recess is not a problem. Also checked it on the 1050 drive. It would probably not fit well in the port next to the power input, but the other port is fine. Drive select switch is still accessible. You can get to the buttons ok, but LED's are hidden. The wifi antenna would be below the top of the drive case and probably behind the shield which could degrade the signal, but I expect it could work depending on distance to your router.
  4. Thanks! @Mr Robot found this Cream color filament that is pretty close to the original Atari XL color. I used it on the previous prototype: In a medium sized batch run though, it is probably not possible to match the color. Yes, I have thought about an XE version too. We'll see what I can come up with. In other news, with some help I tested the SIO Audio line from FujiNet today. It's nothing to write home about, but at least shows that it 'works'. Using the ESP32 DAC we output a sine wave to the Atari. It makes for interesting SIO loading sounds :
  5. I've finished the next pcb revision of the FujiNet Hardware which has been ordered today (10pcs for prototyping). The 'vertical' design idea was taken from the SDrive2-PT recommended by @Mr Robot who also came up with the idea for the XL style case. This design allows FujiNet to be plugged directly into the Atari computer with quick access to the buttons while still allowing the the SIO chain to continue on through the receptacle port on the rear. Thanks to The Brewing Academy for printing a prototype case and test fitting it on these systems: 400/800/600Xl/800Xl/1200Xl/XEGS/130XE/65XE. The 1088XLD would only fit 1 of the 2 ports and it did not fit on the 1088XEL due to cables/ports in the way. Notable changes in this pcb (besides complete PCB redesign): 3 Buttons: RESET, FLASH (Disk Swap?), NEW: OTHER (BT on/off?) 3 LED's: WiFi Connected, SIO Activity, NEW: BT Connected? NEW ESP32 JTAG Port (Optional, unpopulated header port and diode required) Larger SIO 5V Power Switch Larger SMD Resistor Array
  6. Yes, it is still using parts of the Arduino framework. The SD card mount errors are unrelated to your issue. The code attempts to mount the SD card if available and continues on. The error message is just stating it could not be mounted.
  7. There have been requests for an ESP32 based FujiNet schematic/BOM/pinout and I have previously directed everyone to the Google Sheet for the pinout. I've now created a schematic that you can use to build one with a ESP32-DEVKITC / NodeMCU32 or the like. The switch can be replaced with something else (or removed if you like), it's there to enable/disable powering FujiNet from the Atari SIO 5V. For the SD Card socket, you probably want a breakout board like this or this. Note: I have not actually used this schematic to build anything. It's based off the FujiNet Dev board I made and *should* work.
  8. Ah, yes. You need the Time and NTPClient libraries since I added RTC to the multilator2modem code. They are available in the Arduino IDE under Sketch >> Include Library >> Manage Libraries >> Filter/Search https://www.arduinolibraries.info/libraries/time https://www.arduinolibraries.info/libraries/ntp-client
  9. From what I can see in the photos, it looks correct. You might want to try enabling Network debug in the sketch and see if the nodemcu is communicating with the Atari or even booting.
  10. Can you post some photos of your build? Maybe something will stick out. Clock out is not needed to boot the atari. Try using multilator2modem https://github.com/FujiNetWIFI/atariwifi/tree/master/esp32/tests/multilator2modem

  12. I have tinkered with making a replica SIO receptacle. The idea uses the same pins which are soldered thru hole to a tiny pcb with another set of pins offset 90 degrees to mate with the atari pcb. It's still very early for this design though. I also have some different style pins coming that may or may not work better for the replica and/or FujiNet.
  13. I was not planning to release the design files until we have a finished (or close to) device. While the current connectors fit and work, they need adjustments. For example, the plug is actually too small but the pins are holding it in place which is not ideal and the receptacle is too short. The next revision may not even use this design. That is, unless there is someone with 3D design skills that wants to work on a better design
  14. Hopefully finish up the FujiNet build tonight and ship tomorrow. Shouldn't be too long before it's in your hands
  15. If we get ssh running you could put this on a server and browse the web with this tty/console based browser. It has ansi like rendering of graphics https://www.brow.sh/
  16. Just the google doc with pinout (posted throughout this thread), no schematic.
  17. This board is missing GPIO 16 & 17 which are needed for SIO UART communication. Unfortunately, this board won't work as a FujiNet
  18. I haven't seen this one before. It is small which is nice, but it has fewer available gpio than the espressif modules. It may have enough but I have not verified. The module does not have a RF shield and the price is 26 USD which is way too expensive. That said, if it has enough gpio available someone could build their own FujiNet with it. It is pretty cool though, tiny and has battery support builtin
  19. The only hardware you will need is the FujiNet adapter. FujiNet adapter is running our custom software that emulates SIO devices (disk, modem, printer, etc). ATR's do not need to be converted. ATR images are loaded from the internet or local network using the TNFS protocol. You will need a computer running TNFS server to read disk images from or use a publicly hosted server (ie, fujinet.online). There is also the option to load ATR's from MicroSD Card. The FujiNet first loads a configuration program to the Atari where you can connect to wifi and choose which ATR's to mount as disk drives.
  20. I added RTC support via the ApeTime utility in the multilator2modem sketch. Time/Date is downloaded from pool.ntp.org.
  21. Post 1 of this thread should answer your question. The software we are working on runs on the ESP8266 or ESP32 chip and is emulating various SIO devices (and adding new ones). There's some more info in the wiki: https://github.com/FujiNetWIFI/atariwifi/wiki
  22. On the TODO list already Interesting idea. You would be cutting off everything else on the SIO bus connected through the receptacle, not just D1. The game does work between the ST and 8-Bit systems. With FujiNet, you won't need a MIDI Box to play with other 8-Bits. Maybe we could make a MIDI to wifi adapter for the ST so it could be a mixed platform online game
  23. MIDI Maze can handle up to 16 networked players https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIDI_Maze
  24. Yes, the vertical design solves those issues of being easier to access the buttons and see LED status. I imagine anyone with lotharek's splitter would have an extra SIO cable and could plug that into the FujiNet receptacle port. [emoji6] Sent from my XT1635-02 using Tapatalk
  25. You can build one for now. Fairly easy build on a bread/proto board. Sent from my XT1635-02 using Tapatalk
