Re: MonitorType and RISC OS 3

So whether it'll work or not will probably depend upon whether the MIST is emulating a machine with a 9-pin video connector or one with a proper VGA connector (and whether the emulated VGA goes straight to the VGA connector or whether there's something fancy going on like the built-in scan doubler)...

Re: MonitorType and RISC OS 3

In any case, the default CMOS settings are dictated by the kernel. On RISC OS 3.5+ it defaults to Auto monitor type. I'm fairly certain older OS versions will default to that as well - otherwise the problem with EDID-supporting monitors confusing the auto-detection in Archimedes machines wouldn't h...

Re: MonitorType and RISC OS 3

somehow change the RISC OS ROM image to provide a different monitortype on startup (how does RISC OS decide?) If you use *Configure MonitorType Auto then the OS will probe the 'ID lines' to try and determine what monitor type to use (see the PRMs, or the ROOL wiki ). So if the startup CMOS could be...

Re: MonitorType and RISC OS 3

How can you change the MonitorType without rebooting? *Configure MonitorType changes both the CMOS setting and the live value that's used by the OS. The next mode change will use the mode definitions for the new monitor type. Oops - are you absolutely sure? I tried that (using both *configure and !...

Imagine the following: you have a virtual Archimedes system with RISC OS 3.10 or 3.11. CMOS writing is not supported. It starts automatically with MonitorType 4 and works fine with a VGA screen. Now you want to connect a real 15kHz screen or a true multiscan that can handle both VGA and 15 kHz to ge...
