@all

Thanks, I'll try to get hold of these and try to connect the card!

@derfs

Thanks,

I have checked similar here, but unfortunately these seem to be max 10 cm (4 inch) and the anatomy of Amiga X1000 seem to need 17-18 cm minimum.

@Liveforit
Replacing the PSU, you mean one gets the needed power cord with the new PSU? Seems A bit expensive solution, although of course the currently unusable graphics card & Enhancer pack had A price, too.

Where to buy a PCI-E power cord for graphics card?
Just popping in
Just popping in


Hi,

I bought a second-hand Gigabyte R9 270C graphics card for my Amiga X1000. Unfortunately, it seems that the card needs 2 PCI-E power cords while the Amiga X1000 had only one packaged with it. The power supply has free 8-pin socket and the other end of the cord has 6 pin socket. It seems it's quite hard to find similar cords here in Finland with the needed length (ca 17 cm / 7 in). I tried to contact Amiga Kit via the web form and email, but I haven't got any answers. Does anyone know where one could find these cords?

Re: Odyssey 1.23 progress

Hi,

thanks for the new beta06! While downloading the beta release (with beta05) the download speed is relatively slow (200 kB/sec) while downloading similar sized files in OS4Depot is way quicker (1000 kB/sec) with my connection. Wondering, could you release these betas to e.g. OS4Depot for greater bandwith, even if these still are betas?

How to communicate with A-EON using AmigaOS browsers?
Just popping in
Just popping in


Hi,

I tried to purchase some software through AmiStore, but failed as the Paypal option requires reCAPTCHA which doesn't work with current versions of NetSurf and Odyssey (1.23r4_beta05). For some reason the 'pay with credit card' would not work either. I went to http://a-eon.com/ and tried to contact A-EON directly. But their contact form uses - reCAPTCHA! It's somewhat annoying that even Amiga sites are not accessible with Amigas. Is there e.g. an email address for A-EON support?

Hi,

tried to access AmiStore and pay with PayPal. As before with the donate buttons, Odyssey (original 1.23 and r5-beta05) doesn't seem to be able to pass the Recaptcha phase. Any ideas how to proceed?

Thanks, would donate but with beta5 the two Donate tools won't open. If turning off JS I got a Recaptcha prompt but not able to proceed.

Hi,

sorry if this thread is the wrong one for bug/improvement requests but... Tested the Odyssey beta4 and with short testing I'm really impressed, it's fast and e.g. the video stream support is very much improved compared to the OS4Depot version.

But: at Finnish Broadcasting Corporation news site https://yle.fi/ Odyssey (both the OS4Depot and beta4) seem work oddly. The main page is shown perfectly but if I click any news item, it first loads but then clears the view and shows an empty page. What is the problem here? Using default settings (fonts downloaded with Download fonts)

Re: Text file encoding

@broadblues

I'm actually using utility.library functions for character conversion and I have normal AOS4.1Final with update1, not any betas. As my program uses internally UCS-4 as a storage format, these examples convert from into UCS-4 and from UCS-4 to current charset, but maybe one gets the clue from this.

...
typedef int32 UCS4STRING;
typedef STRPTR UTF8STRING;
typedef int32 UCS4CHAR;
...
UCS4STRING ConvertUTF8ToUCS4(UTF8STRING srcstr)
{
    
UCS4STRING resstring;
    
uint32 bufsize;    /* bufsize should accommodate UCS4STRING */

    /* 
    ** Convert source UTF-8 C string to internal UCS-4 string
    ** Note! The caller MUST free the resulting resstring !
    */
    
resstring NULL;
    if (
srcstr)
    {
        
bufsize sizeof(UCS4CHAR) * (IUtility->UTF8Count(srcstr,FALSE) + 1);
        if (
resstring IExec->AllocVecPooled(MemBase,bufsize))
        {
            
IUtility->UTF8toUCS4(srcstr,resstring,bufsize,UTF_INVALID_SUBST_FFFD);
        }
    }    
    return(
resstring);
}

...

STRPTR ConvertUCS4ToString(UCS4STRING ucsstr)
{
    
STRPTR resstring;
    
UCS4CHAR *maptable;
    
uint32 i,j,len,bufsize;    /* bufsize should accommodate UCS4STRING */

    /* 
    ** Convert source UCS-4 string to C string in current default charset
    ** Note! The caller MUST free the resulting resstring !
    */
    
resstring NULL;
    if (
ucsstr)
    {
        
len IUtility->UCS4Count(ucsstr,FALSE);
        
bufsize len 1;
        if (
resstring IExec->AllocVecPooled(MemBase,bufsize))
        {
            
maptable = (UCS4CHAR *)IDiskfont->ObtainCharsetInfo(DFCS_NUMBER,DefLocale->loc_CodeSet,DFCS_MAPTABLE);
            if (
maptable)
            {
                
/* unknown char if not available */
                
for (0;i<len;i++)
                {
                    for (
j=0;j<MAPTABLESIZE;j++)
                        if (
maptable[j] == ucsstr[i])
                        {
                            
resstring[i] = (unsigned char)j;
                            break;
                        }
                    if (
== MAPTABLESIZE)
                        
resstring[i] = '?';
                }
                
resstring[i] = '\0';
            }
        }
    }    
    return(
resstring);
}


Edit: added the typedefs.

Re: Help me print, please (postscript printer)

Hi,

I didn't manage to get netprinter.device to work with my X1000 + HP Laserjet M451 nw, but lpr.device works quite fine. From OS4Depot, download lpr_dev.lha. With it I did the following, (from the lpr.device doc):

- copy the lpr.device to DEVS:

- Edit DEVS:NSDPatch.cfg by adding the following lines:

DEVICE parallel.device UNIT 0 MAPTODEVICE lpr.device MAPTOUNIT 0

- Configuring with the env variable. There is documentation in the archive, I have done something like:

SetEnv lpr.device Save "HOST 192.xxx.yyy.zzz RAW"

where the four-byte IP address represents the one your printer is assigned to.

The Printer prefs is set like you have already done, althought he device is lpr.device. With these settings, I am able to print from AmiPDF, Multiview, CodeBench. As my printer is able to print PDFs directly, I can do something like

Copy mydoc.pdf PAR:

Thank's, works well when launched from command line or from other program like Yam. But if installed into AmiDock, does start only once. If clicked repeatedly, doesn't open a new tab. Probably intended behaviour?

Yes, the OpenWindowTagList tag WA_ToolBox is a way to circumvent the deactivation problem. Should also work in Reaction windows.

@kilaueabart

The printed picture aspect is modified by the Printer preferences. Which settings you have there (for example the 'Settings' tab 'Limits' section, I'm not sure if these are correct headers in English as I use the Finnish locale )
