Re: Atari TT030 QVME

I remember now that the video drivers I was thinking about were for Atari TOS to use the QVME. The "QL" ones were built in to SMSQ/E and could be tweaked at boot time. Yes, Jochen supplied a disk to use the QVME with high resolution (b/w) under TOS, this also set a "Cookie" so A...

Re: Atari TT030 QVME

Hi, Per, I read the Atari SMSQ/E manual and used the command: DISP_SIZE 800,600,70,,128,60 Which gave a nice 800x600 display on the VGA monitor. When I more time, I will play around with the DISP_SIZE command to get the maximum display size. Just goes show if the information is in the manual, I just...

Re: Atari TT030 QVME

Hi, I forgot about the SMSQE.PRG config blocks, looking the configuration with Menuconfig, there is default setting of 15Khz in the Horizontal Frequency. The monitor I used on the QVME is a HP LE1901w which gives frequencies of: Horizontal: 24 - 83 kHz Vertical: 50 - 76 Hz So will replace the Horizo...

Re: Poll: CPU choice

Hi Dave, It will take a QL-SD just like the originals. Expansions will work the same way, too. This looks an excellent feature, all my expansions can work. It will take SuperHermes. SERnet should work fine. Sernet on the Superhermes does not work, as the Superhermes SER3 driver can use the STX/SRX S...

Re: Atari TT030 QVME

Hi Per, I loaded the Atari SMSQ/E which has the Atari Screen driver included in it, I tried the Level E drivers and the Mono screen driver. All resulting in an out of range error message on the monitor. The QVME card works on the Mega STE, I thought maybe there was something special to do on the TT0...

Re: Poll: CPU choice

Hi Dave, For my needs, I do not require Microdrives. I usually remove them and use Disk or SD Card. I use SERnet, between Q68, Q60, QPC2 at 115200 baud, which is faster than the QL Network. Can you improve on the video output to a modern monitor without video upscaler. With regards to operating syst...

Re: Poll: CPU choice

Hi, I voted for tthe 68SEC000 CPU. I want lots of memory and run a modern operating system, like SMSQ/E. QDOS and Minerva still use the Slave Block system, which SMSQ/E does not. Will microdrives and network be supported. Personally, I use all QL hardware and emulators, this new QL board looks great...
