It works in mono as I used the diagnostic cart for testing the ST2VGA adapters in both colour and mono.

Re: exxos blog - random goings on

PC died :( It had been acting up for the past couple of weeks. But it just froze this morning and it's been downhill since. It seems a sata card had died for starters. It was preventing the PC from booting. But windows kept acting very odd. It would boot then the screen would go black and the taskba...

If the pads gone just use the capacitor legs and bodge wires to the track.

Re: Falcon Fun.

I'vealways heard rumours of Falcons that don't need clock patches, @stephen_usher please upload high Res motherboard photos at some point :) I will have to "undo" my patches and see what really happens at some point :roll: I can't see falcons working properly without the patch. They might...

Re: Falcon Fun.

Thanks.. That's confusing now.. As if the clocks are that clean, there would be no need for a clock patch. I've seen all sorts of ringing..always. I'll have to refit the resistors on mine and see if I get the same results.

Re: Falcon Fun.

Just to be clear. This is two probes, one each side of each resistor in turn? How about one probe per clock line to determine skew? Just checked with one probe. They all look nice. 5.12V on one side and 5.04V on the other. All nice and clean and almost a perfect sine wave. One side of the resistors...

Re: Falcon Fun.

Could you scope the clocks on both sides of the resistors where the clock patch wires normally go ? On x10 of course.

I'm actually writing a article about the clock patch stuff.. But don't have a stock machine anymore..

AFAIK its 2600 only. I do have a 7800 somewhere and a few games for it even. But again..lack of time...

Re: Atari 7800 - Concerto cartridge. Mini review

Interesting. I have not seen that cart before. I've got a UnoCart but never get chance to play with it.
