ARM2SiD by Nobomi New Firmware v3.6

June 10th, 2019 No comments

A new firmware update for the ARM2SiD has been released by Nobomi.

News features and fixes in FW 3.6:

  • Compared to version 3.5, a quick response in stereo mode was added (when using a second socket), the dual-mono mode is activated without timeout when both socket is addressed in the same time.
  • Also upper addresses mapping is fixed in the update (sometimes misaligned address detection in the update application).
  • The “blind” FW 3.6 update updated without reading the registers during the update (especially useful if you have a problem with ARMSID detection)

Download:

If you have wired A5/A8 address lines, you can try 3SID files modified for D400h, D420h, and D500h addresses.

Super Mario Bros 64 running flawless on my DTV (C64DTV)

Super Mario Bros 64 running flawless on my DTV (C64DTV) Modded

I was very curious what ZeroPaige has written in the description of the Super Mario Bros 64 game, the game on the C64 DTV use the Turbo mode.

I have tried the game on my upgraded C64 DTV and in fact is much more fluid, i would say perfect except for a few graphics glitches.

Below what ZeroPaige writes about the Turbo mode:

Since the NES-processor is clocked (roughly 70%) faster than a stock C64 there can be slowdowns during gameplay. A pixel indicates this on the time-watch graphics in the status bar.

This port will try to detect and use any kind of turbo functionality, such as:

  • Commodore 128 (2 MHz in the border)
  • C64 DTV
  • Schnedler Systems Turbo Master CPU (untested)
  • Swisscomp Turbo Processor (untested)
  • Rossmoeller Flash 8 (untested)
  • CMD SuperCPU Accelerator (untested)

USB Stick STM32 (Gotek) HxC Firmware v3.1.60.5a

Jean-François DEL NERO (who’s behind the HxC SD Floppy Emulator) recently has released a version of the HxC emulator firmware that is compatible with the STM32 chip used in the Gotek floppy emulators.

This means that the great functionality of the HxC SD emulator is now available on cheaper and more widely available hardware.

The bootloader to convert the Gotek floppy drive in HxC compatible must be purchased on the website HXC 2001 by sending an email to Jean-François DEL NERO. The price of the bootloader is one-off 10 Euro per Gotek that you want to update. Future updates of the software are free and can be made from a USB stick

The HXC Usb (Gotek) firmware supports: + many more….

USB Stick STM32 (Gotek) HxC Floppy Emulator Firmware v3.1.38.2a -> v3.1.60.5a cumulative changelog:

  • GeneralMusic S2/S3 : Undocummented floppy format support added + *.gem file extension support.
  • Non-gated interface : Ignore the floppy selection line for the head step + Some fixes.
  • Motor-ON signal support to emulate properly the “READY” and “INDEX” signals.
  • OLED : SSD1305 2.23″ 128×32 OLED screen support added.
  • Internal enhancements. (WIP)
  • New direct raw format support : Yamaha QX3 format (*.IMG,*.DSK)
  • 7 segments screen menu : Add missing system family entries :  
    • 15 = Robox RC9400
    • 16 = Kawai
    • 17 = Yamaha QX3
    • 18 = User defined format
    • Gotek I/O Lines Diagnostic/Test mode Since this hardware is quite sensitive to ESD and other electrical issues, the floppy lines can be easily damaged.
    • This new mode allows you to test/check all Gotek’s Input/Output lines with a simple wire.
    • The test must be run with floppy ribbon disconnected from the machine.
    • Once enabled/flashed with the diagnostic firmware, all outputs will toggle every 2 seconds.
    • All inputs states are displayed on the screen.
  • Input lines test method :
    • The default input states should be High (1), so to test an input line you have just to connect it to the ground/vss. On the floppy port you just need a jumper to make a contact between the line and the ground.
    • Once the jumper is placed between the line pin and the ground/vss pin the corresping input state should turn to Low (0).
  • Output lines test method :
    • All outputs are toggling every 2 seconds during the test.
    • (Note : A 1 ms pulse is sent to the JB output at each toggle to test the buzzer ouput)
    • Connect the output line to test to one input line (use a tested input by the above method) with a simple wire.
    • If the corresponding input status is toggling with the outputs line, then this means that the output line/driver is working properly.
  • LCD / OLED / 7 segments screens output/input status definition :
    • LCD/OLED input lines status format : “IN:123456 789AB”
    • 1 or Digit-1-segment-a : Floppy Drive Select line (Pin 10 or 12 or 16 -> Depend on the S0/S1/MO jumper !).

DirMaster v3.1.2 / Style

April 27th, 2019 No comments

DirMaster is a Windows-based GUI application designed to help Commodore enthusiasts explore and manage their disk image collections.

DirMaster supports common (and uncommon) emulator disk image formats (such as .d64, .d81, .d2m, etc), almost every native Commodore archival format (such as .arc, .sda, .lnx, etc), and many native graphic formats (such as koala, doodle, amica, etc).

DirMaster was designed to give users a perfect blend of familiar appearance (e.g. natural looking disk image contents using the PETSCII character set) and modern GUI functionality (e.g. drag and drop, opening multiple disk images at once). The first version of DirMaster was released in 2006.

v3.1.2 addresses a few bugs reported by users:

  • Workaround for high dpi issues reported by users on Windows 10 (Windows 7/8 still affected, known issue)
  • Drag/drop from a disk image to the file system handles “broken” files more gracefully.
  • Corrects issue moving .cvt files between disk images.
  • Page up/down works in the petscii column on the sector editor.
  • Tweaks: hexedit font toggling, BAM view, Explorer preview font size.
