Re: September Update

4 MEGA BYTES! I'm so envious! ;-) What crazy kind of games we will be able to write!! I don't know... You tell me! I thought you saw that picture? No, it is still 640x800, till I get the RevC board working perfectly, then I will begin to work on the 800x600 mode. I sure you are going to enjoy the e...

Re: RevC1s Debug Thread

I am posting here to give an update on the RevC1X. Well, after I realized that I would be stuck with a truckload of problems if I kept going with that board with BGAs, I decided to stop, something I should have done a while ago. I decided to step back and see if there was not a different route I cou...

Re: FAT 32

So far I can read the MBR, the Boot Sector, and the Root Directory with the first data cluster associated with the file/folder Now I need to test the FAT function to get the next cluster from the current cluster. The 5E in the picture mean : deleted file. http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2019/37...

Moving on from RevC1s to RevC1x

Stefany's log, stardate : 73140.7 alright, I tend to make life difficult for myself because apparently I love to struggle. :o) I have assembled a RevC1x late Monday night and I did it with Lead Free paste since the BGAs have lead free balls. I can tell you right now this is not something I will do a...

Very exciting to see this. Is this the 800x600 video mode?
Dan,

not really, Dude, I wish I would be to that point. No, it is just the new kernel I am revamping for the new hardware. I thought it would be nice to have a new look.

Re: Foenix IDE

The IDE still requires a lot of TLC to make it more useful for C256 Foenix developers. Is there a link to any sample source codes aside from those found on Piotr Meyer's Github page and the kernal? Something more of a graphical nature like the Jumpman Senior bitmap, C256 Foenix Boing Demo or someth...

Re: Foenix IDE

Hi there! New developer here, hopefully. :-) Had a couple questions... - Will the IDE build/run on non-Windows platforms? I'm currently building a porting tool / library for 16 bit systems. So far, all supported platforms build from a Linux installation (Windows, macOS, Linux, IIgs, and almost Atar...

Rev C0/RevC1s/RevC1x

Well, yesterday was another day of pain and fucking around... In order of appearances: 1- The first item on yesterday's to-do list was to get the RDY signal to behave properly. One of the things I want to do in the Rev C, was to have a certain independence on the usage of the RDY because having the ...

Building these boards sounds like an epic task.

You do great work though and I'm looking forward to these coming out.
Thanks Jamesd, I really appreciate it.

It is a labor of love, trust me.
