NightSprinter wrote on 2022-08-23, 20:15: So, is there a reason why the background on a Tandy 1000 with this would be green? The device works, but I get a green background instead of black.image.jpg It looks like you’ve got a bridged pin on the main IC or some other fault.

Re: *START HERE* SoftMPU 1.91 - Software Intelligent MPU-401 Emulator

I really don't like emm386, is their any major reason why JEMM386 support can't be added? If I were to try and add JEMM support myself, where in your code is the call to the MS EMM386 api for redirecting the ports? Is it mostly in one spot/function or is it kind of spread throughout the program? I …

Youtube review by LGR : https://youtu.be/9SII7ujB3FY Good review, what's the latest FW for these? PS, I really must order your case for mine!

Are there instructions for programming the FPGA board? I'm new to FPGA. I've downloaded the Quartus software and installed the USB Blaster II driver. I downloaded the firmware from github, opened the CDF file, and hit the Start button. It says 100% successful. Is that all there is to it? I can't …

Re: OPL2LPT

Excuse my ignorance, I just got an older IBM that has MS-DOS 3.30 installed. I'd like to give the OPL2LPT a try on this machine, which memory management works best for this DOS version? For XT class machines you can only run patched games, the TSR won't work. If you like Sierra games then it's very …

Allright I made the video. First I centered the screen, ensured I get correct colors with KQ1 and recorded MM1988 in composite mode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8XSFA9Yduo I hope the video is good - anything else just ask retrocanada76 :) It still makes no sense to me that the black pattern is …

Re: Who ever had Mac?

I'm using a dual Xeon ML350 G4p which was a file server for several years, but is now serving as a desktop. And yes noise is the biggest problem with it. Nice, I used to have the 1RU DL360 Dual Xeon (I forget with Gen it was) and the very large (6RU), very loud DL740 Quad Xeon!!! :lol: I've had a …

Re: Who ever had Mac?

Which HP server do you run? (I'm typing this on a HP server running W2K8R2) Good old original HP MicroServer N36L with a P410 512MB BBWC Raid-controller & 12TB Disk + 120GB SSD for the OS and the custom AHCI FW. I used to have a bunch of Xeon powered rack mount models too, but the Wife wouldn't let …

Re: Who ever had Mac?

You don't buy a Mac because they're good or cheap, but as a social statement: "yes, I work with computers, but I'm not one of those guys ." Whatever, I bought my Centris 610 to replace my Amiga 500, Windows 95 didnt impress me at all - at the time I also had a 386 which I ran OS/2 on (great OS) and …

*I just have to hit auto-adjust on my LCD for every mode change, but I can live with that. For CGA: Adjust your monitor clock to fit extra 8 pixels. Then using MODE CO80 find the leftmost position. Adjust the MONITOR Hor. Position and set the screen to the left, allowing extra 8 pixels to the right …

Re: Who ever had Mac?

Centris 610, Apple Trinitron Colour CRT, LC-040, 24MB ram, 80MB HDD, external CD-ROM Drive in 96'ish I think (I bought it 2nd hand from the Apple Dealer I worked for at the time). Great machine and was still going strong in 99 when I sold it for close to what I paid for it. http://lowendmac.com/1993 …

RC, I just tried the latest commit from GitHub (~4 days ago) and it looks great - I no longer have to play with phase on power up* and the colours look excellent! Oh and the scanlines are MUCH nicer now too! Great work! :cool: *I just have to hit auto-adjust on my LCD for every mode change, but I …
