Thanks. I've done version 2 based from this (not tested).

Have omitted the sync pull down to luminance line however, as the displayed worked with the resistors in the current circuit. Adding the 5V and transistor to this cable is a bit of a pain (can use a 5V socket and power directly from the GT itself)

Pretty sure he was referring to the original loading screen for Le Sceptre D'Anubis

Personally I think it's still better than I'd have done, but it is a bit "programmer art"

Are they fully decoded?

No, I check for A10 = A5 = 0

and then

A0 = 0 (Data register) or A0 = 1 (Control register)

More info:

When reading control register:  1010RRRI   where 1010 is the magic code to detect card, RRR is reserved and I is the value read in SPI INT pin

When writing control register:   RRRRRRRC.    where R is reserved and C is the value to be set in SPI CS pin

When writing or reading to data register: A full byte is sent to or read from SPI, deserialised or serialised within the Z80 instruction with a high frequency clock.

Personally, I believe that not even the engineers who built that machine feel nostalgic about it.
The ridiculous price can therefore only be explained with that machine's rarity.

When it comes to building its successor, though, I am considering to start off with the following:
  • Write a bitmap converter that demonstrates the overall look of the planned video modes
  • Fork and extend the Arnold emulator to create a KCC+ emulator for evaluation purposes

With that approach we can see whether certain mechanisms have the desired effect and are worth implementing in hardware.

Quote from: GUNHED on Yesterday at 16:48Nice to see that SymbOS eventually start to have more serious software.
Yeah, something we have yet to see from other "operating systems" for the CPC.

Thinly veiled promotion and weirdly of topic in the original thread as it did not include any arguments or pointers whatsoever.. Feel free to discuss it here in its own thread.
