  1. Can you cut/paste an 512 byte example of a MBR with FAT32 and APT? (just like I did with FAT32/MyIDE) I found the $7F remark on the pdf, not sure I understand the rest. I used $26, just because wikipedia says: reserved Or, What would APT do when it reads the MBR a have cut/paste?
  2. Okay, I got a working MBR/FAT32/MyIDE setup on a beta 4.7 MyBIOS :-) Now, to be compatible with APT I like to know what it uses in the MBR. As test I have created this on a 128Mb CF-card. 1 sector MBR 255 sectors reserved $18000 sectors FAT32 $25700 sectors for MyIDE Were does APT fit in? 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0B 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 80 01 00 00 00 00 00 26 00 00 00 00 81 01 00 00 57 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 55 AA
  3. Read and processing the information read :-) My first FAT32-approach is indeed too quick&dirty. Runs fine on Win-XP and during testing at myplace. Sole reason being to support Candle's fat32 loader on a single media. Have to dig into MBR-settings and learn :-/ This surely saves me some valuable OS-space having to remove the FAT32-formatter. Thanks and catch you Later!
  4. I'm a bit late in replying But, if you can compile those two versions to try, that would be cool Thanks, Jay No problem, I'm late as well http://www.atarimax.com/flashcart/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1086 SDX is default, hold SHIFT-key at bootup to enter the boot-selection page. Here you also find the fat32-loader SIDE. Later, Sijmen.
  5. Bought on a retro-fair in the Neterlands (not ebay), but hey, nice find..... romox 16k reusable blank cartridge.
  6. Well 4.7 is still in beta, that's why I have the menu default on. Normally the menu should be off and the system can boot either in MyIDE-mode or SDX-mode. holding SHIFT during powerup or reset+powerup the user gets the menu. I can compile a version for you to checkout, no problem. Do you want SDX or MyIDE as default, or shall I compile both versions? I added fat32-formatting to the new version. So you can init a card with MyIDE, then use FAT32-format to format the rest of the card for PC-usage. This also allowes you to use APT. This only works with cards of 256Mb and larger. The card is roughly divided in half. Later, Sijmen.
  7. What didn't you like or do you have suggestions?
  8. I did some rework on the MyIDE/SIDE BIOS. The flasher contains the original SDX/SIDE setup and MyIDE. Also I added 8 standard atari 8k games like starraiders, pac-man etc. Since there is plenty of room left in this 512k flash-rom The new version can use FAT32+APT/MyIDE formatted cards. The tool for initializing a CF-card in dual-format is not yet supported in the IDE-menu. But the BIOS will detect FAT32-cards and when in MyIDE-mode uses space at the upper half of the CF-card. But only when a valid MyIDE 4.7 partition is found/made on the media. Tested and debugged on Altirra, "the best atari-emulator ever!" Enjoy. Merry X-mas!
  9. Found some issues with shift+control+number. Fixed in this version.
  10. Hi all, Thanks for Candle uploading the programming specs of the SIDE-hardware and some requests of MyIDE-users I took the liberty to compiled a MyBIOS for SIDE. The flashfile contains SDX4.45, SIDE-loader and MyBIOS for MyIDE-formatted CF-cards. At powerup you can select what you want to boot. The SDX4.45 and SIDE-loader are the same as you have now. Basically the support for MyIDE-formatted CF is added to the cartridge. I have included the user-manual for MyBIOS Manuals etc for SIDE/SDX can be found at the appropiate sites. The MyBIOS version is 4.6.11 beta (pre-release). Read at the forum what it supports: http://www.atarimax.com/flashcart/forum/viewtopic.php?p=5574#p5574 Here you can also read further about MyBIOS/MyIDE. Instructions how to flash: Download and unzip, use it as D1: Powerup and type COLD /N follow the instructions on the screen. Instructions how to flash back: Download the flasher you want, use it as D1: bootup. hold SHIFT and select "R" follow the instructions on the screen.
  11. I have enough knowledge of the Atari-OS (I think), perhaps we can help eachother? Also I could inlude a fat32-loader in the BIOS im writing..... But need some backup in accessing the source of fat-32 allocation. Anyhow, drop me a Pm or mail me on my homepage. Later, Sijmen.
  12. Okay, that works like a charm :-) Nice job! Why am I always late in getting new stuff...... I do need to tweak the 4.6BIOS not to load when SIDE is selected. There are to many conflicts making lots of com/exe/xex not to load. You can download the latest 4.6BIOS with SIDE from the atarimax forum. It will be present in beta#9. I'll try to upload a pre-beta#9 (atarimax 1mb+MyIDE only) today. http://www.atarimax.com/flashcart/forum/viewforum.php?f=7 Is there any development/progress in loading ATR's with side? Later, Sijmen.
  13. Hmmm, interesting stuff here. I'll try to include the fat32-loader (MyIDE-external-slave) in the flasher-file for the atarimax 1mb+ide cartridge. There is enough room for other EXE stuff beside PicoDOS :-) This is new to me, so it will take some time for the quarter to drop Later, Sijmen.
  14. Here is link to a testcartridge that can tell you what bit is bad. http://www.atarimax....hp?p=5932#p5932 It worked for me most of the time, If ALL bits are bad, think about looking at the signal-generating chips. Success.
  15. http://commodore-gg.hobby.nl/agenda.htm 20 augustus is er ook een club-dag, maar dan heb ik geen tijd ...... Later, Sijmen.
  16. When you are dutch, drop in at the atari/c64/msx clubday in Maarssen. (next one were I am is 15 october) and I'll have look at your 600xl, perhaps fix it :-) Later. Sijmen.
  17. Yeah, I bought one from his site directly. Really a supurb peice of hardware. An extremely (portable) handy device and all disk you want at hand It works on any atari. Firmware 3.0 HSIO set standaard at 4 (80kbps), great! http://www.lotharek.pl/product.php?pid=23 Big horay for Lotharek. Sijmen.
  18. Just take a clear one out of a crappy 800xe or 65xe BOUGHT @ HMV LONDON: Atari headphones, black. for 20 UKP
  19. Legal reasons...... Bob: You can send me an email if you want a copy. Or wait for the PDF version IRATE is working on.
  20. http://www.atarimax....hp?p=5574#p5574 Just to keep you up to date on AA as well. And some youtube stuff: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=mr-atari+myide&aq=f Later, Sijmen.
  21. Not on ebay, but on the retro-börse 11-may 2011 in Germany: http://www.retroboerse.de/fotos.htm upgrade your german http://www.lust-auf-...52011_video.htm White JAGUAR casing Now to find me some time and put a jaguar-PCB inside!
  22. Ok, here it goes. Used winzip, and added .zip to the end of all files. Otherwise it wouldn't upload So, download, remove the extra .zip extension and unzip. Enjoy the code, A pitty that part of the writers comments are cut off. Later, Sijmen.
  23. Ok, no problem then. How do I upload the rest? The files are larger then 2mb (upload limit AA). Is there a way to devide the pages from these other 4 tif files? Later
  24. Big THANK YOU for altirra. Live is much easier coding a BIOS on the emulator and first line debugging :-) (My)IDE emulation is really supurb! Even RGB-movies run flawless (and I have only an [email protected]) Keep up the good work. Later, Sijmen. Any chance of porting altirra to the Wii as homebrew?
