  1. My guess is your board is an OrangePC 210 or 220, based on lack of PCMCIA, slower CPU and inclusion of serial/parallel port via octopus cable. You won't need the dongle to get it running since it routes video through the Mac. You can see my OrangePC 250 earlier in this thread, it has a big transistor below the jumpers and a PCMCIA slot and its a DX2/66. Note even after I swapped in a DX4 overdrive and changed jumpers it didn't go any faster so maybe don't worry about the jumpers and just set it to what 486 you have on it. You can also see @Unknown_K's OrangePC290 card e
  2. Looks great @Bolle! Consider me interested Have you tried overclocking at all? I imagine most of the later CPUs can hit 50mhz easily, not sure about the accelerator chips or whatever effects it may have on the bus. The Daystars can hit 48mhz.
  3. @johnklos interesting, was always curious about how that performed. Have you tried running the bus at 33mhz making the Quadra Overdrive run at 66mhz? Perhaps one of the later stepping models like L88M could handle such a frequency. Alternately wonder if there's a way to create a 1.5x multiplier. As you pointed out last year in another thread, the next forums have schematics for the doubler. Such a cool project! Other question is for 630/640 DOS Compatible if anyone has ever gotten another CPU running in it (like a dx4), aside from the shipped dx2/66 or cyrix 70?
  4. Not sure if you all have seen this but this is a way to mount a disk from HTTP by @bbraun which is an alternative to going through filesharing programs. http://www.synack.net/~bbraun/68khttpdisk.html
  5. Great project!! Very elegantly done. One thing I've been hoping for is the price of OLED screens to go down, so that we could potentially get a flexible OLED display and push it up against a curved CRT to replicate the slight curve of the screen. The non-emissive blacks would also be very CRT like. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like OLEDs are mainstream outside of smartphones with very high resolution or very large TVs with low/moderate resolution. Nothing in the tablet size at low resolution. Something like this is just about ideal, but rather expensive ($1200) and a
  6. Don’t remember unfortunately. Pinot on twitter has one, looks like at least 1024x768
  7. Interested! Maybe 8-12 sets? Smart move making these, everyone's got some missing.
  8. The LC variant has the standard Mac DB15 on the back, which you can get an adapter to output VGA. It worked fine in my Mystic Color Classic. As for compactness... the LC one is maybe 80-85% the size of the color classic / 575 logic board, its a monster! On closer inspection I think the boards are about the same size tho, just different proportions.
  9. @BacioiuC thanks! Looks like a more compact version of my LC-slot variant.
  10. Got any pics of the procolorserver video card? Haven't seen any in the wild.
  11. Thought this overview of open-toolchain FPGA hardware might be of interest to hardware hackers looking to build new projects with FPGAs: https://www.ktemkin.com/exploring-open-fpga-hardware/
  12. Love this game, thanks for fixing this issue!
  13. Looks great! Love the dramatic photos. Seems like the picture is not distorted, guessing you didn't have to mess with the magnets much? I gotta find one of these green CRTs.
  14. Socket wrench was all I needed, looked more difficult than it was. The yoke was a bit of a pain just because it’s fragile and lots of wires were around limiting movement. There’s goo around the anode so wear gloves!
