Re: Different tape input sound volume

Thanks for the replies and explanations! I would be unable to make the link between a drawing and actual components on the borad, so I'll avoid doing anything :lol: Looking forward to see the results of your tests, ISS! For the moment I gave up updating Novalight - I still have a mystery to solve wi...

Different tape input sound volume

Hi, When testing Novalight a while ago, I noticed that about 8 machinnes required the sound volume at maximum to load the programs, but 2 other machines failed if I did so... But it worked if I put the volume at a very low level for them! I never understood why, and Dbug suggested that I took some p...

Re: Sedoric 'utility' wanted...

The Oric world anyway,I've been playing with my Atari ST, writing a program to write MFM *.dsk files to ST disks, so I can then get them onto my Oric. Just after succeeding in transferring a few *.dsk files as well, including Sedoric 4, so it was worth the effort. Hey, this is extremely interesing!...

Tested the 1Gb Transcend card I bought from Amazon, and it works nicely.

That's probably it, made by Nox (author of O-Thrust).
Works fine on Euphoric!

- Symoon: Did you get to test the 128MB from Amazon?
Well I didn't need 10 µSD cards so I didn't order them ;)
I ordered another one (can't recall the size, 512MB or 1GB) and will let you know once I recieve it.

Re: Cumana disk interface problem

I can't speak for the Gotek, but HxC manual has detailed information on the jumper setting according to which type of computer you intend tu plug it (basically ST/Amiga or PC or Amstrad), and of course flat or twisted cable. Using a twisted cable for Oric apparently results in inverted logic, so ins...

What's your firmware? How are the DSK images converted to HFE?
I would add: do you have a system on your DSK file? (don't forget slave Sedoric disks can't be booted!).
I only used once my HxC, and I recall I had to set some jumpers 1st to have it configured as drive A.

MIST

I think we "MIST" the great news ;) http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=115&t=37919&sid=3ab0f3e15491e54b4b5aa05459472269 MIST is a FPGA based multi-machine emulator. Oric seems fairly new. Only drawback I see to those machines: they won't allow to plug all the real hardware. So if you just in...

Re: Atmos/Microdisk - ghost in the machine!?!?!?

About the low-level copy program - my CopyPlus can do it! It's unfinished because I wish to integrate formatting functionality too which was difficult to debug ...

Re: Atmos/Microdisk - ghost in the machine!?!?!?

I still have a PC with 3" disk drive attached but gave up trying to make a 3" disk of FT-DOS for someone a few years ago (after something like 15 tries, drive change, and so on). I do think it's time we save the remaining 3" disks (especially originals), and give up using 3" disks. Drives are failin...

Re: Erebus Batch November 2019

If I'm not mistaken (all from memory): - the microSD card has to be formatted in FAT16, so the maximum is 2GB - you must avoid SDHC and SDXC models, which have a different hardware to allow much bigger storage - the current Erebus version "only" accepts 512 entries on the root of the card - if you u...

Re: Erebus Batch November 2019

Ok, just tested the beast with an old 2GB Sandisk card. It works like a chram! :D 8) Of course I tried twisted things like a program using STORE/RECALL :mrgreen: (which failed, but Kenneth already explained that IIRC). The box is really nice, and the chips are not directly soldered on the card, so t...
