I have no idea if anyone will find most of this stuff of any value or not, but I'm not much of a collector... I have some things in a box to eventually put on display somewhere, and the rest is going to hopefully find a home with someone more happy to have it.

Search for "haynie's garage" or follow this link: http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=haynie%27s+garage&_sacat=See-All-Categories


Hi Dave,

Would you happen to have any datasheets for the following CIAs:

4510 and the 4502 and the 6511

Thank you,
Chuck

Dave is the kind of guy that u wouldnt have to pay to hang with thats absurd. He is very cool and open.. guess thats why everyone likes him.

I cant believe the bidding is at 1k for that aaa board WITHOUT the chips and NOT workin?k??

It was an observation, not a suggestion.

It's going so high for the same reason collectors pay large sums of money for rare artefacts of any description.

Exactly, C65 machines even non working motherboards go for 1000s to so it's no surprise as a AAA board is even more rare.

Good luck to Dave on his auctions.

I dunno about his stool, but Dave should consider selling an evening in his company at a bar or something on ebay. I reckon that might sell for even more than his kit.

I'd love to have a drink with the guy (non alcoholic in my case, of course) and hear his tales of the good (and not-so-good) old days first hand.

...led to THIS?!

Wow - the Nyx prototype is on. Wonder what's it'll climb up to... :nervous:

Over 9000 I guess :lol:

$1k is, like, half a macbook pro, and there are millions of those.  There are only three Nyx prototypes in the World. I would think $10k plus will be the final price.

Does anybody know anything more about the chips and ROM that Dave spoke of?  I read his posting that they went with the designers.  Any of those pop up?   I would love to look through a ROM disassembly.

I don't think the fate of the other two Nyx boards and the few working chips is known. One system (this one?) got fried when the ROM socket shorted on 12V.

I don't think they had a working / somewhat complete ROM this early in the development phase, probably only some evaluation & testing code (AAA would have required completely functional RTG for the OS to run). The Walker was further in development and barely working.

HAM10 is most likely better than 16 bit chunky because it's  pallete based AFAIK. 16bit is not.
In practice HAM10 would eliminate HAM artifacts almost completely (it already got better with HAM8).

Hmmm assuming HAM10 has 256 base colours set via bitplanes like 64 of HAM8 i think not.

HAM8's biggest improvement was being able to display 1280x512 images vs OCS HAM6 320x512 maximum.

HAM was (is) great for static images but less than ideal for images that update frequently.

Come to think of it, HAM8 already looks better than 16bit modes, provided the base pallete is choosen carefully.

@Karlos
"HAM was (is) great for static images...."

And, as you know, animations, cause they're precomputed.
Now check this idea, HAM10 raytraced anims for an AAA based VideoToaster back in 93, they would've taken the world. Commodore really had some corrupt management going on...

I think HAM10 would be able to display a nicer static picture than 16 bit chunky with dithering but 16 bit chunky is easier to work with. HAM10 probably would have made sense at the time of AAA though as memory was still expensive. Memory display bandwidth was still very expensive then also and HAM10 would have used substantially less bandwidth than 24 bit "Hybrid" mode which itself was probably created to save bandwidth over a 32 bit chunky mode. There is a good proportion of people who want Natami to have HAM10 and >8 bit planar but I think it's a waste of resources. Yea, it would be neat to see more AAA modes but it's more important to get the planned hardware 3D support for example. Another disadvantage is that all the new display formats will have to be supported in the operating system.
