  1. I just bought a TAM!

    You can't use the Fat Back with a dual PCI riser, i have tried that (and failed). With the Fat back, you must use the CommSlot riser and the right PCI riser (i have not found a model with the good size)
  2. It's my website I like the Pippin, and i have many things about this console ! Actually, i have a modded console with hard drive, better CD drive 24x), memory and the floppy drive. The next things is to build a PCI adapter
  3. I don't know if Mac OS 9 support that, but a graphic card with a DVI Dual Link output is OK for 2560x1440 and many display can use this mode. With VGA? it's complicated, it depend from the RAMdac speed and many display cannot display in analog at native definition. But there is a (big) problem : performance. Many graphic card for the era are too slow, even to display the desktop. For 4K, i think it's not possible : even with "modern" Mac, it's complicated. Actually, you must use a DisplayPort 1.2 or HDMI 2.0, tow things only available on computer from 2012 and more.
  4. It's not a good idea on the Power Mac 6100 : the x86 is on top of the PowerPC 601. If you install a fan on the x86 CPU, the heat from the x86 goes direct to the PowerPC, and after go the top of the card... on the x86 CPU. Nope. The x86 on the ODS card is a 486 DX2 (5 V) and you can replace it with a better CPU, like a AMD 5x86 133 or a Cyrix 5x86 GP100 or GP133 (much better). But find a CPU with the correct voltage (5V and not 3,3 V) is complicated. I have tried with an AMD, it works with a "upgrade CPU" (Visiontek), but i can't launch Windows 95 on the card (a weird probem).
  5. I have tested with a USB to DE9 and DE9 to Mini DIN without problem (http://www.journaldulapin.com/2014/09/23/faire-fonctionner-une-imprimante-imagewriter-ii-sous-mac-os-x/). You can find USB to Mini DIN, but there is many problems with drivers on modern Mac OS X. For the parameters : 9600 bauds, no parity, 8 bits and RTS/CTS hardware. If you have a Image Writer II with LocalTalk, you must disable the LocalTalk card too. With Mac OS X it works with CUPS. And it works with a Raspberry Pi and CUPS (http://www.journaldulapin.com/2016/01/02/airprint-imagewriter-raspberrypi/).
  6. A crazy idea: original 2001 iPod on modern Mac?

    USB to FireWire will not work. It's just "scam" : it works only with peripheral who can send a USB signal on FireWire connector (very very rare). But on a modern Mac with Thunderbolt, you can use Thunderbolt to Firewire and use the first iPod without problem.
  7. The TAM Appreciation Thread

    Actually, i use a riser found on Amazon. The size is OK (the height), but it's misaligned with the fat back. The Apple dual PCI riser is OK for that : the PCI connector is shifted. I have a photo (from up) : The first is too short and the card will not fit, because there is the hard drive cage. The second is on the wrong direction. The third is the same as the first. Number for is OK in size, but PCI connector (male and female) are aligned, and it's not good. And the last is too high (i can't use the Comm Slot riser). You can see the shift between male and female connector. I search a riser with the shift (like the dual) and the right size (like the 4).
  8. The TAM Appreciation Thread

    The 820-0689-A are too short in the TAM, i have tested.
  9. Hi, i have a question : i have a TAM but i have note the PCI riser. I search the reference (and the size) frome the original PCI riser for the TAM. I have tried with a "noname" model, but i can't close the TAM with the fat back, and the dual PCI riser from a Power Mac has not the right size.

  11. IIe compatibility card questions

    It works with the internal drive too, if you have 3.5 inches floppy with ProDOS on it. And i have tested the FloppyEmu with ".po" image (800 kB) without problem.
  12. Dandu's Conquest

    Many things, but a specific graphic card : a GXT2000P GPU from a RS/6000 IBM workstation (a machine with OpenFirmware). And... the card works in a Power Mac G3. But there is no driver : Mac OS 9 see a display card, but i have only the white screen boot from the OpenFirmware.
  13. I have a mouse like that. And i have the Bandai Pippin Pad, too : there is a trackball on it, with two button. I think that the trackball from PowerBook 180 use two different button, too.
  14. Dandu's Conquest

    Received today : a wireless (infrared) gamepad for my Pippin and two games.
  15. Dandu's Conquest

    This week, i have buy a PowerBook 1400, without information (just, it works). And good suprise : there is a G3 333 inside the Mac, and 48 MB RAM. And a HP deskjet 340 with the serial cable (not tested yet).
