The CPC is finally a simple terminal to input and display. Reading the thread when Reading your post remember me on thing.You have described how superfx chip works in snes. Fx do all the job, and he only send to snes vídeo memory what snes draw in screen.If you asking a player when is playing Doom or super Mario world 2. If a snes is not a snes anymore. I dobut they respond no. They probably tell sfx is a great chip and desmotrate the power of snes.Because snes is designed to allowed these type of chips. And is a part of the system.Only remember the historyPD: i not know what happend with the font is write o.k. lol.QuoteThe Font is a bit small ?Ray

Quote from: Duke on 08:12, 09 October 16Hi 00WReX,You are probably the first to try this I guess.Try to disable M4 rom (and dont have any other roms enabled). I am curious if the CPC464 cost down will start up without entering reset loop?Regards,Duke
Quote from: 00WReX on 09:35, 10 October 16I did end up using a form of microscrub on them (old telephone exchange contact cleaner that I have had for years...does wonders but I use it sparingly although it is not really abrasive, just a firm like bristle).Cheers,Shane

Quote from: Bryce on 09:57, 10 October 16You can make a very useful little "scrubber" by wrapping a piece of Velcro (Klettverschluss), the "hook" side, around a stick (Mine is made from a Chopstick). It's soft enough not to do any damage to contacts.Bryce.
Quote from: TotO on 11:43, 10 October 16I have not said that is bad to do it, but asking again "when we can considerate the CPC to be no more a CPC"... Generally the answer is: "While the Z80 does the job and the expansion doesn't hack the system, it is OK."The SuperFX example is interresting because the chip is embedded into each games cartridges and transparent for the players.It render 3D polygons and advanced 2D effects into a frame buffer and blit the result into the SNES video memory.I think that was a clever way to speed up the PLUS display instead of using sprites... (see it like a co-processor)
Quote from: 00WReX on 00:03, 11 October 16Hi rpalmer,I totally agree with you.The reason I asked is that Utopia is known to conflict with certain other ROMs and I removed Utopia from my list because of this.It also needs to be after the AMSDOS / M4 ROM otherwise it's RSXs will be selected first.But also, I figured it would be nicer (and possibly not too much work) to have the RSX implemented on the device with the M4 ROM.Other ROM RSXs are already implemented on the M4 ROM and I also like the idea of minimising the ROM count (to avoid any conficts etc).Honestly, I mostly wanted Utopia on the board just for this function.Just a thought anyway.Cheers,Shane
Quote from: 00WReX on 23:29, 10 October 16Hi Duke,I don't like making feature requests...but I will. It may have already been asked or on the to-do list.Are you able to add an RSX to list installed ROMs.Something like the |help in utopia.Maybe |ROMSI know the ROMs can be seen from the Web Browser, but straight from the CPC is very handy too.Thanks.Cheers,Shane

Quote from: 00WReX on 04:47, 09 October 16Hi All,Just wondering if anyone has tested the M4 on a 'Cost Down' MC0099A mainboard CPC464 ??The one with the 100pin SMD Gate Array (combines the old Gate Array, CRTC, and some FDC/DRAM/RESET logic in one chip).http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Mainboard_Versions#CPC464_version_4_.28cost-down.29I have been using the M4 fine with an older 464, and tested pretty much everything with it and all good.But my 464 with the 'Cost Down' mainboard just cyclic reboots.I have thoroughly cleaned the edge connector contacts.I have moved the M4 ROM between positions 6 & 7.I removed the SD card altogether.During the cyclic reboot the M4 ROM name is never displayed.I can still communicate with the M4 via the web browser (config file on SD card from other CPC setup).Testing a normal ROM board on this CPC is fine so assuming the connector contacts are all OK.The 'Cost Down' 6128 also has the same 100 pin SMD chip (40226) so interesting if anyone has tested an M4 with one of those as well.http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Mainboard_Versions#CPC6128_version_3_.28cost-down.29Cheers,Shane
Quote from: Joseman on 13:29, 13 October 16Hi @Duke_ Today the m4 board is unable to work with the wifi part|netstat tells that is connectedbut |httpget hangs the cpc and symbos 3.0 don't work with symirc anymoreif i type the ip on my pc firefox, instead of the configuration page it displays "404 - not found"what can be happening?
