Hello, I've identified a bug using following setup: Zemmix Neo + GR8Net + Mouse plugged at port 2 (adapted from PS2 mouse).

When I use SymbOS, specially with higher CPU speed, I randomly get graphics corruption. Initially I thought it could be related with Zemmix core, but only happens when mouse is attached. If I use SymbOS with PAD it works fine even at highest speed (8,06mhz). Could it be related with the mouse controller of SymbOS?

Thanks!

Hi,
I'm sorry i did not had any time for a update. It was a very nice meeting. In a way those computer meetings are just cool because there is more than only MSX. I always like to see other systems as well.

here a small report in German. So you get the idea.

NDR german TV

and longer youtube with more close shots.

It is a bit delayed Wink We found some bugs in the new v9990 version. Still no idea about the root cause. It seems only to happen on real hardware. Prodatron added some new features like the new sprite based mouse routine for the v9990. Not sure if this is related but it causes SymbOS to freeze on a cold boot in lower resolution random. Is we use the 512 resolution it seems to work fine. And a warm reset always works.. so probably something odd..
