Myide 2 for Atari 8 bit from Atarimax / mr Atari

Recommended Posts

I'm going to release (very soon) a MyIDE-I version of the MyBIOS.

 

That will have the same functionality as this one, only the additional MyIDE-II support will be disabled.

Beside that, the image (packed BIOS) is supported with the latest ATARIMAX Studio-software, so you can (finally) custom build your own flash-content :)

-yeah-

 

Later!

Sijmen.

Did you also use the R1 rom? The rom and the cart currently don't work properly together for me. If I use F1 (cart) as stand-alone, it works fine as a regular hard drive. Dunno about the image facility -- I only use as a MyDos hard drive.

I loaded up the TEST-F1 Maxflash workbook. Added some 8K carts to my liking, then flashed the cart.

Everything seems to work fine.

It could be much more than a ramdisk, but a current application that needed an XE/Rambo-type ram expansion for it's own use could not use this SRAM. To use other than as a slightly faster disk will require new programming or mods of existing code. It actually is seen by MyDos as a single-density, high-capacity drive. It is faster than the IDE drive but slower than a regular ram expansion. Even the MyDos ramdisk code would need to be altered to get it to do "program swaps." At least this was all true in my testing.

Pardon the dumb question (and apologies if I missed it discussed). Does this cart act as a RAM upgrade, or merely provide a RAM disk?

I don't think it works as either. It works as an IDE drive.

Due to a flue I'm and have been "out" for a few days.

Removed the link because problems with cold-starting the R1-rom, further there were no issues I guess.

Hoop to be better soon and upload a fixed version end of the week, also F1 will be online then.

 

Hang-on!

Sijmen.
