    Lapis Display Card ROMs?

    Seems happy running System 7.5.5 from a MacSD :)

    Lapis Display Card ROMs?

    May I ask if the card you have is working at the moment, or no output? Mine initially had no output, which was the corrupt ROM. How I know it is faulty/corrupt is I am unable to read it using my programmer, which is a XGecu TL866II plus (perhaps a knock-of). Definitely preferable to have an...

    Lapis Display Card ROMs?

    Kinda sorta... My revised theory is that there is a lot in common between cards using that ROM, but that there is a section of it that includes what resolutions/colour depths it supports, and therefore the included VRAM amount, as well as the card name/identifier. Would be interesting to get...

    Lapis Display Card ROMs?

    Happy to report success with adding the other 4x DRAM modules - I first tried simply adding them rather than replacing in case the issue was the mismatched ROM assuming more DRAM than was present, and it fired up fine - a welcome sight indeed! 256 colours is fine, thousands is not. I am OK with...

    Lapis Display Card ROMs?

    To clarify, before using this fresh ROM, on boot the internal display on either SE/30 I tried stayed grey, no HD activity, and nothing appeared on the external display. So, I have now ordered 6x of the M5M44256AL RAM chips, when they arrive I will try swapping them around to work out which is...

    Lapis Display Card ROMs?

    Very interesting, I am certainly getting further with a fresh EPROM. Looks like there is still an issue, I'm guessing one of the 4x 256K video RAM chips is flakey. Booting from 7.1 with the "ColorServer™PDS-17" control panel installed, I cannot open it, the error is that there may not be enough...

    Lapis Display Card ROMs?

    Awesome work, thank you! Now to burn it onto another EPROM and test the “all 60590s are created equally” theory :)

    Lapis Display Card ROMs?

    OK, I have asked someone who I know has a similar card for a dump of the ROM, maybe there will be some good news on this front on the way!

    Lapis Display Card ROMs?

    Here it is, the label came off when I removed the ROM, I haven't exposed it to enough UV that that'd be the issue (*he said hopefully*). I like the theory that all ROMs with the number 60590 are actually the same... Certainly would make life easier if it's the case! Any help with this would be...

    Lapis Display Card ROMs?

    I would also love to get my hands on a dump of that ROM, I have a Lapis ColorServer PDS/30-17 which I am hoping is only not working due to a corrupt EPROM (27C64A that is another with "60590" on the label). I managed to resurrect a Radius PrecisionColor 24Xp with the same fix! Don't know if it...

    Looking for Mac Hack CDs!!! :-D

    Oh no - that is weird, MacintoshGarden.org is coming up as these random dodgy sites now :( Just checked their twitter, apparently an ex-admin sold the domain! Now they have to get it back...

    Thanks @olePigeon - will do!

    Looking for Mac Hack CDs!!! :-D

    I'm not sure if this has already been covered, and I know it is an old thread, but I have a book/CD called "Late Night with MacHack". Has the CD image been archived anywhere? If not, where should it be? :)

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    Thanks for your reply, completely understand how work can overtake any fun hobby stuff. Look forward to an update on the kits when you can, definitely interested in the two as mentioned :)

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    Thanks, @joshc , that's a shame but I guess I will have to keep an eye out for the other options :)

    mAcTX - ATX to Classic Macs

    @Compgeke @blusnowkitty Not sure if I have completely missed the boat on these, but I'd love to buy one suitable for a Macintosh IIsi if that's still a possibility. Heck, may as well get the LC model as well :) Let me know, thanks! I'm in Australia btw.

    Creature Speakers

    Two cool things with those speakers, iirc... 1: Tap both the + and - buttons simultaneously to mute/unmute the audio 2: when you turn the bass and treble adjustments, there is this subtle feedback when you're at the exact middle of the range, it's a slight resistance with the dial. Great...
