combo MNT ZZ9000 + Roadshow

Post by francouai »

Hello support team!

I purchased Roadshow few months ago, I have the last version.
I'm using it with my A4000/A3660 and my MNT ZZ9000 (Ethernet port) using the last FW1.5.1.
When everything is installed, I'm getting problem. :cry:

There is something in the combo Roadshow +zz9000 that accelerate things on its own !!
Demos are running very very fast and Whdload games are totally unstable and crash or when they can play, they are also too fast.

Roadshow with MNT ZZ9000 networking doesn't do that with AmiTCP / Genesis, so I believe It is something in Roadshow, not the Ethernet driver from MNT.
I'm going to report this problem also to MNT support page.

I'm using AmigaOS 3.9 (and it was doing the same under 3.1.4)

If you could you check and help, it will be great!

thanks!

PS: you can see the problem by playing (for exemple) this demo:

yes, try this one : https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=85 ... -VnRRwD_2k

Hello!
problem has been fixed by changing the IRQ of the ZZ9000 Ethernet card. :D

Always nice to see a problem which I haven't got the first clue about getting resolved to so quickly :)

But, seriously, what exactly needed changing? If possible, I would want to add some notes to the network interface configuration file and the README file which ships with Roadshow so that this kind of problem could be avoided by other users, too.

I changed the INT jumper directly on the ZZ9000 card.
from 6 to 2 or .. .2 to 6.. cannot recall. it's old !

Thank you :) It looks like we need a Network driver configuration file for the MNT ZZ9000. Which device driver would is use? Is the name "ZZ9000" OK for the configuration file or does the network interface hardware have a different, specific name?

I used the Netinterface file "Ariadne" customized but MNT is giving the ZZ9000 driver.
you should check directly with MNT.. lot of people start to use roadshow with their ZZ card. :D
