Amiga core update – Blitter issues and chipset timing

Amiga core update – Blitter issues and chipset timing

The AGA core is pretty stable now, but one issue which has been haunting me for ages is some blitter operations go wrong and leave garbage on the screen. I’ve been working with Jim Drew, who pointed me at some source code released by DMA designs for Menace...

Libs and Pacmans

I’ve been working on moving the existing (old) cores like Scramble and Asteroids over to the new Replay framework. While I was at it, I tidied up the library wrapper which has made the “plumbing” a lot simpler. I’ve started documentation and...

Amiga core update

I made a few minor improvements to border sprite behaviour (fixes Banshee AGA). The core is in the Amiga news thread in the forum. I intend to get the release SVN area sorted out in the next day or so…

Back from holiday

Right, returned from a brief holiday. I’ve moved all the CAD projects and libraries over to my internal SVN repository. This was necessary to sync the work between the workstation and laptop, so I can get the daughter board and AGA debug board out to production....

Amiga core update

I’ve been testing a new version of my Amiga AGA core. It’s checked into the private repository. I’m working this week to make binary releases (and source ASAP) on the public mirror.   The MIST AGA project has received some great updates...

Survived the worlds biggest party

Well, just about. Glastonbury was amazing, but now I’ve sobered up, flown home and I have been busy testing boards all day. I received an update from the Mist guys (we work on the 68K CPU together) and have updated the Amiga core. Still some issues, but moving...

Taking a short break

I’m off to a music festival in England (Glastonbury) today and I’ll be out of email contact for a few days. You can see some pictures from last year here : http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/gallery/ Back to shipping boards, finishing this website and...

Testing continues

I’ve been trying to catch up on the backlog of boards. A number of developer boards have gone out this week. The boards below have all finished functional test and are going onto soak test, final inspection and then shipping to distributors. (sorry for the poor...

Server move

The website has been moved to a new host provider, so we can provide additional services (like web SVN etc). Please check the forum for news and updates – the website will be getting an update as well 😉

New website on line

A new website went live, along with a forum. Unfortunately, I spent so much time in the Forum posting updates, I forgot to update the main website….   Meanwhile, testing continues :

Production boards complete

Some pictures of the production process and boards. The boxes have just arrived and everything should be packed and shipped before the end of the week. Note, the boards have not been cleaned yet.   Front Back   Boxes!

USB interface

As the last entry was in May last year, I think some update is in order. Simply, work went crazy and I moved flat in the summer last year – all of which conspired to push out the Replay board development sadly. I have got the production process in place now, and...

Pricing

Well, I said I would not update this “old” version of the site any more, but as I haven’t had time to bring up the nice new one yet completely, one more update is necessary. The Replay boards have now obtained FCC and CE approval and are starting to...

IO shield

Well, I still haven’t got the new website up and running, but testing and shipping of the boards continues. I’m working through the list of people who have mailed me. I have a new Amiga core up and running based on Jakub’s latest work, but it’s...

Testing testing…

Testing is going well, I have most of the boards assembled now. I am starting to mail people who have already contacted me, and then I will see how many boards are left. I am about to order some more, so there should be plenty available. The first core to be released...

More boards

Some of the new toys… Sorry for the lack of updates, still working on the new website. I’ll start taking orders for these later this week.  

ATX power controller

Ok, not quite the last post in the old website … I’ve just got back from another fantastic Glastonbury Festival, so it’s a bit of an effort to do, well, anything this week 🙂 I built one of the atx_pwr controller boards and it works nicely. Now my...
