Cool, I wonder if this can really work, that would be nice
Indeed, but for now there's something rotten in my kingdom, I had tested the synchro rom on Euphoric and when yesterday I tried it on the real thing, it blocked waiting for the timer1 interrupts... So, double bug to fix... :-(

I might have a try at this, time to try this 32K flash eprom I bought...
Argh, I've been fooled by the vendor, it's not a 32Kx8 flash eprom that I have received...

Anyway, I've produced a "synchronizing rom" this week-end, I still have to find an eprom programmer, though...

Cheers,

Fabrice

Thank you Mike for trying to answer all those incoherent user opinions about your forums
I was talking about my own suggestions, I hope nobody else than me took it personnally :-)

General discussion forum 's New topics at the top level ?

Thank you Mike for trying to answer all those incoherent user opinions about your forums :-) On the newsgroup, I proposed that you move the General Discussion forum to the top of the list, instead of the Bugs, Problems and Suggestions forum. Also I was wondering if it could be possible that the new ...

Very strange... Gregory, could you confirm that TYRMAPS.TAP when extracted from Simon's zip file is exactly 6689 bytes ? I've tried 3 different ways to launch Simon's program with no problem (double-clicking on the tape, CLOAD"TYRMAPS.TAP", CLOAD"TYRMAPS")... Which version of Euphoric are you runnin...

Excellent, Simon !!
I played Tyrann but unfortunately I don't have the handwritten maps anymore... (and I don't remember if I went to the end of the game)

True, this crash occurs systematically under Dos...
I only noticed it recently when trying Virtual PC, because all my test platforms had at least Windows 95.
I will have a look at it, I guess it's due to cwsdpmi, which doesn't protect all the memory pages unlike Windows does...

Hello Kamel, Sorry, I didn't reply to your mail because I haven't had any free time to do anything (Oric-related). Just tried to plug it on my Telestrat but have not been able to insert a floppy in it (it is blocked at mid-insertion), I have yet to see what is blocking... It was just a bit gripped ...

Better late than never ? :-) I've found back the notes I wrote during last year's CEO meeting, when Hakan let me test his IJK interface.... The following information will allow you to detect an IJK interface: Once 11000000 is written to DDRA, the two high bits of Port A select left and/or right joys...

Well, preset 4 is special, basicaly instead of steping the 128 dots by +/-1 it instead steps by +/-129 effectively having 256 virtual dots on screen, because the 128 are at one position during one frame, and at the opposite position next frame. Ah, ok, so it's normal it blinks 25 times a second... ...

This is an interesting proposition... You suggest that since the timer starts at the same time as the ULA, a few instructions at the beginning of the cpu execution should be enough to have the VIA synchronized with the ULA.... I might have a try at this, time to try this 32K flash eprom I bought... ...

Is this what is called a Lissajoux ? It's great, I'm amazed at the countless possibilities offered by the parameters ! I have obtained some funny effects, it really looks 3D at some time... But is this the best demo to illustrate your double buffer technique, though ? I couldn't make the difference,...
