Relaunch64 V3.3 – C64/65xx cross-development IDE

August 1st, 2014 No comments

Relaunch64 is an IDE (text-editor) for C64 assembler-coding on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Relaunch64 has a clean and intuitive user interface, yet it offers many features that make coding faster and easier.

Java 7 or higher is required to run Relaunch64. The program is licensed under the GNU GPL 3 (or higher) and free for private and professional use.

This editor works together with common cross assemblers like Kick Assembler, ACME, or 64tass. Other assemblers might work as well, but syntax highlighting may not be 100% correct.

Texas Instruments TI-99/4A Repair

Gallery of the repair:

Texas Instruments TI-99/4A Repair (#1)

Defect:

  • Blue Screen with tiny Vertical lines.

Replaced parts:

  • 1 x MCM6810P (128 x 8-Bit Random-Access Memory TTL/DTL)

Texas Instruments TI-99/4A Repair (#2)

Defect:

  • Blue Screen with tiny Vertical lines.
  • Wave/Raster Lines.

Replaced parts:

  • 2 x IC MCM6810P (128 x 8-Bit Random-Access Memory TTL/DTL)
  • 1 x IC CD3236A-NL (ROM)

Note:

In one photo you can see the curious change made in this TI-99/4A by inserting a resistor in the pitch where in other motherboards is soldered a leg of a electrolytic capacitor and then one leg of the capacitor is welded and the not the other leg.  Compliments.

SNDH Atari ST YM2149 Archive v4.4 released.

July 3rd, 2014 No comments

SNDH archive v4.4 released – 4261 SNDH files (total 8268 tunes)

Ever since the birth of the Atari ST, different chip music formats have had different ways to use them. If you are coding a chip music player for the Atari ST you would have to use dozens and dozens of special ways to replay music.

But in the mid 90′s, BDC of Aura crew became tired of this inelegant system and decided to fix the issue once and for all. He then created the ‘SNDH’ file format. SNDH is actually the original songfile and replaycode with a header bolted on top of the music and replayer. The header has a unified calling interface no matter what type of chip music is hidden beneath it, and it has extended datas about the music.
