00:42:10DewiLHey everyone, I'm playing around with a Rockbox theme for the Sansa Fuze. I was wondering if anyone here with a Fuze would be able to try it out before I upload it to the Rockbox site. I've never done one before, and don't want to upload it if it's not put together correctly. I'm not sure if this is the right place to go with this, so if not I apologize, but please point me in the right direction. The rockbox forums asked to not post themes
00:43:15AlexPDewiL: You can have a thread for opinions/tests in the themes subforum
00:44:55AlexPDewiL: The Posting in this forum thing is to try and stop people just posting completed themes, but if you stick a screen shot up to ask for opinions, and a link to your theme to ask for testers then that is fine
00:49:15 Join bunnyboi [0] (
00:49:29DewiLOoh, Ok. I wasn't sure because the pinned thread in the forum asks that themes not be attached to a post... only screenshots for feedback. I didn't want to seem rude or anything.

01:06:54DewiLAlexP: Thanks a lot! Trying it now.
01:07:39saratogakugel: for phones that skip in the background, do they need a lot more CPU time?
01:07:51saratogaperhaps with optimization we could get most formats working well
01:07:57kugelperhaps yes
01:08:06kugelbut they get little from the system in the first place
01:08:58saratogawe could cheat and use SMP for mp3 so they get 2x as much ;)
01:12:05saratoga"My understanding (and observation) is that if a process is in the background scheduling group then it will receive no more than 5% of the CPU"
01:12:26 Quit BRi7X (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
01:12:33saratogawell 5% of a couple hundred MHz on an ARM11 or Cortex CPU might be workable
01:13:51saratogaparticularly if we have access to NEON or maybe DSP hardware, probably not on the oldest android devices though
01:15:43 Quit simonrvn (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
01:19:41preglowwould take some work to utilize neon instructions
01:19:48preglowsince we like to keep shit 32 bits as long as possible
01:21:16saratogai think some of the NEON flavors can do packed 32 bit vector ops
01:21:32saratogaIIRC its does 4x32bit integer ops on Cortex

01:23:35CIA-6New commit by 03kugel (r27688): Ignore screen orentiation changes and force portrait mode. We cannot handle it any time soon anyway.
01:25:17saratogai think NEON could do a lot of good for the codecs, things like the FFTs, quantization and Windowing code take up a majority of decode time and are readily adapted to it
01:25:18CIA-6r27688 build result: All green
01:26:08saratogaplus all the effort we've put into using LDM on ARM7 gives us a pretty natural starting point for packed ops
01:26:29saratogasince if you've got vector loads and stores, its only a small step to having vector muls too

02:42:28JdGordon|yes, a small one
02:43:35bieberHmm, no compile errors here

02:47:11JdGordon|do you know if the editor will explode if a code param doesnt start with a LINE or LINE_ALTERNATOR element?
02:48:30bieberHmm, lemme take a look at it
02:48:42bieberFor the 't' param type you want to add, I take it?
02:49:15JdGordon|I was hapily surproised to see it didnt break skin_Debug_tree() so maybe you are ok?
02:49:33JdGordon|git svn rebase is SLOOOOOW
02:49:36***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
02:49:54bieberWhat's a tag that uses a code parameter?
02:50:21bieberIn general, I don't think the editor really does anything with any parameter unless the execution of a tag calls for it, so it probably won't break anything
02:50:30JdGordon|the playlist viewport
02:50:35JdGordon|um.. %Vp?
02:51:01JdGordon|or is it %vp? I cant remember :)
02:51:12bieberYep, Vp
02:52:05bieberLooks like the code branch of that union only gets used thrice in my entire code base, and none of them should break if you have a top-level tag
02:52:26JdGordon|oh goody
02:52:38bieberI'm not so sure about variable argument types, though
02:52:54JdGordon|what about it?
02:52:59JdGordon|if the editor will break?
02:53:35bieberI think a lot of my rendering code just uses the expected branch of the data union, so if any of the currently supported tags switch to using variable arguments, that could screw things up
02:53:42bieberWhere would it be used?
02:54:05bieberEither way, it won't take too long to fix, it's just something I'll need to take care of when you make the change
02:54:24JdGordon|let me know where to hack and I'll do the work :)
02:54:35JdGordon|does the editor use the tag table params?
02:55:19JdGordon|what the patch does is try to guess what type of param the user used and then tell the parser to parse that type if it was in the list of expected params
02:55:31JdGordon|so the param type will end up being INTEGER or DECIMAL or whatever
02:55:49JdGordon|i.e as long as nothing uses tag table params directly it should eb ok

03:01:36bieberJdGordon|: It doesn't use the tag table params, I've generally jut hard-coded param numbers and used them as the expected type (I know, bad me)
03:01:38saratogakugel: with ASM?
03:02:08bieberi.e. when I'm expecting a DECIMAL somewhere, I just grab params[x].data.number and divide it by ten
03:02:29bieberSo you'd just need to wrap some of those in switch or if blocks to check for the type they actually ended up parsing as
03:03:29CIA-6New commit by 03kugel (r27689): Implement HAVE_LCD_ENABLE and lcd_update_rect(). When Rockbox runs in the background ...
03:03:35kugelsaratoga: no
03:04:31kugelsaratoga: IIUC enabling asm only needs a change in config.h now, but I would like to wait with enabling it until we have a better way to prove what it gives(ie until test_codec)

03:45:48tmztkugel: do you think it would use less power as a service than the opencore version?
03:46:31kugeltmzt: what is opencore?
03:46:49tmztthe internal dsp framework and codec library
03:46:54tmztof android
03:47:08tmztit can use the phone's dsp for mp3 playback or just play pcm samples
03:47:29kugelI don't know
03:47:32tmztI'm wondering if rockbox's codecs use less cpu cycles and overall power
03:47:34saratogabenchmark the built in decoder
03:48:09kugelthe built in app of my phone uses more cpu, but I don't know if it uses that opencore nor whether my phone has a dsp
03:48:10saratogaactually that would be nice to have as an option in test_codec eventually
03:48:37tmztthe g1 has a dsp and I'm pretty sure it's used for mp3 playback directly
03:48:56tmztwe know the kernel driver has the capability but I've never traced playback to see if it's used
03:49:30tmztthe startup sound also uses the feature, the playmp3 binary calls an ioctl on the adsp node and starts playing the mp3 frames
03:49:39tmztwe also have source for the program
03:50:07saratogai'd be surprised if they use a DSP for mp3
03:50:14saratogathey probably use it for video decoding
03:50:25saratogaat least putting audio on the DSP and video on the CPU would be an odd choice
03:50:37kugeldsp for sound only doesn't make a huge difference does it?
03:51:07saratogaDSP cores usually have somewhat faster multiply-accumulate performance then an arm core, but probably only marginally so
03:51:33saratogaonce you throw in NEON i'm not even sure thats true
03:51:38saratogaIIRC ARM claims their decoder using NEON needs like 10MHz for MP3
03:51:46tmztg1 doesn't have neon
03:51:52tmztor vfp
03:51:53saratogayeah its just arm11
03:52:10saratogaso you're in the 15-20MHz range for MP3
03:52:16kugelarm11 has vfp, doesn't it?
03:52:22saratogaits optional
03:52:24kugelthe beast has vfp too
03:52:46JdGordon|bieber: yeah, obviously we would only need to check the type of the param for the tags which have a guessed type
03:53:14kugelI guess if your phone has 500+ MHz, then 10 or 20 mhz for mp3 won't be noticeable
03:53:16bieberI'm guessing it won't be used too often?
03:53:20tmztkugel: the g1 has an 1136 derived core without vfp
03:53:39kugelwe don't need vfp anyway :p
03:54:14tmztsaratoga: video is also on dsp on the newer devices, g1 class can't really support much in the way of video playback on the dsp
03:54:26saratogasure it can
03:54:39tmztsaratoga: at least the startup sound uses dsp, I don't know if it's used in other playback tasks, I just know it's possible
03:54:52saratogathe startup sound isn't a wav?
03:54:56tmztsaratoga: well, the modules aren't there
03:55:00tmztno, it's mp3
03:55:11saratogahow do you know it uses the DSP?
03:55:56tmztthis is a method for the java part
03:56:10tmztI'll get you the source in a minute, we ported it to other HTC devices that's how we know
03:56:42tmzthere's the dsp framework;a=summary
03:58:39saratogayeah but how do you know the DSP is actually used?
03:58:47JdGordon|bieber: it might be.. depends how nicely it works. The code to do it is worth the flexibility
03:59:15saratogaI mean I don't doubt that theres an MP3 decoder in the framework, but linking the API doesn't tell you were the code executes
04:02:42tmztwell, I'll get an offical version in a minute but this is the program used to play the startup sound from init.rc
04:03:51kugelthat plays wav
04:04:40tmztthere is a software version of the mp3 codec in that opencore.git
04:04:45tmztyes, but read the main() function
04:05:19tmztif (dot && !strcmp(dot,".mp3")) { return mp3_play(fn);
04:05:36tmztafd = open("/dev/msm_mp3", O_RDWR);
04:05:47tmztthat kernel node cooresponds to dsp playback
04:06:13saratogaah the msm is the DSP core
04:07:55tmztyes, msm is the chipset
04:08:07tmztthe phone chipset has two cpus, the arm9 and the arm11
04:08:13tmztthere are also multiple dsps
04:08:33tmztused for modem function, apps function (the adsp) etc.
04:09:05saratogaalthough googling suggests that msm also refers to the onboard DAC
04:09:14saratogaso its not really clear what that function does
04:09:17tmztI've looked at opencore again, it's been awhile it seems the omx part uses hardware playback and codecsv2 is software
04:09:27tmztmsm is just the name of the whole chipset
04:09:36tmztit's the msm7201a
04:10:47kugeldamn, they didn't fix the startForeground problem with the latest OTA update :(

04:20:41tmztah you found it
04:21:21saratogaweird that theres no modern video formats included in that interface, just some old stuff and a lot of audio
04:21:50tmztbecause the qdsp5 can't really support modern video
04:22:05tmztqdsp6 can though, it's in the snapdragons (Incredible,EVO,HD2)
04:22:16saratogaso when i do youtube videos, thats all the ARM core?
04:22:53tmztthe video side I think so
04:23:50tmztthere might be motion correct or dct though
04:24:56tmzthmm, it seems to support h.264 lc or something, I know it doesn't support high or advanced fully in dsp
04:25:05saratogayeah that would make sense, i guess they wouldn't ahve to put it in the public api

06:40:54darkenvyokay I finally got into rockbox on my ipod
06:41:13darkenvycan someone verify that if the "play button" is held down that the ipod reboots?
06:41:33S_a_i_n_tit should turn off...not reboot.
06:41:41S_a_i_n_tthough, which iPod do you have?
06:41:43darkenvy(oh Ive been on and off all day, my ipod's play button is stuck saint)
06:41:59darkenvyI have the ipod 30gb
06:42:16S_a_i_n_tthe Video?
06:42:38darkenvyyea it turns off. also note my hard reset doesn't work. But I think this is because the play button circuit is closed haha
06:42:48darkenvyyea the 30gb ipod 5th generation video
06:43:42S_a_i_n_thmmmmm, how do you even start rockbox then?
06:43:59S_a_i_n_tif the play button was should try loading linux.bin at boot.
06:44:06darkenvyoh interestingly enough, holding down menu overrides the play button booting linu
06:44:27*S_a_i_n_t tries this
06:44:47darkenvymy first idea was to recompile the bootloader with the linux.bin line commented out (but had compiling errors all over, im not good jumping into someone elses projects)
06:44:51S_a_i_n_twhat? that should drop it into disk mode?
06:44:56*S_a_i_n_t is confused.

06:45:13S_a_i_n_tplay+menu on boot will drop to disk mode...I don;t get it.
06:45:25darkenvyidk perhaps it took pressure off of the play button? the play button clicks though
06:45:51darkenvyits not like the play button is jammed down or anything
06:46:08S_a_i_n_tit'll be pretty damn hard, if not impossible to do certain things with no play button.
06:46:10darkenvyshit now im in official ipod mode, there is no way out of this one XD
06:46:39S_a_i_n_tI can't reproduce your behaviour with holding menu overriding holding play at boot and not laoding (or trying to) linux.bin
06:46:57darkenvyI was thinking of the back button. Its barely used
06:46:58S_a_i_n_tdarkenvy: boot holding menu.
06:47:20S_a_i_n_tbah, igonre that.
06:47:38darkenvyokay what can I do with this ipod? my last one fried so I ebay-ed this one...... (as the 6th gen isnt rockbox-able) can't get out of the OF now?
06:48:15darkenvyI pulled the battery wire now....
06:49:42***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
06:49:44darkenvyregardless this is my current issue....
06:50:04S_a_i_n_tthat's really weird, if play *is* indeed always being "pressed" then I can't see how holding menu as well doesn't frop it into disk mode at boot.
06:50:16S_a_i_n_t*drop, rather
06:50:23darkenvywhen in rockbox, center doesnt work (but does in official) and rockbox exits in about 7+ seconds or so (assuming this is because of the play being pressed)
06:51:02S_a_i_n_tHmmm, yes.
06:51:02darkenvyoh center prolly doesnt work because lay is pressed huh?
06:51:06S_a_i_n_tQuite correct.
06:51:18S_a_i_n_tholding play cancells out "select"
06:51:37S_a_i_n_tA new clickwheel is pretty cheap.
06:51:42S_a_i_n_tcheaper than a new iPod
06:52:08 Nick DarkJuju is now known as [J] (juju2143@gateway/shell/
06:52:10darkenvythe buttons are under the clickweel though
06:52:27S_a_i_n_toh, ...yeah.
06:52:55S_a_i_n_thave you tried having a look to see if there is something between the contacts on the play button?
06:53:05 Nick [J] is now known as DarkJuju (juju2143@gateway/shell/
06:53:15S_a_i_n_tI guess it'd be hard to bust it any more than it is now.
06:53:25darkenvyim doing that now... I gotta get my glasses for this
06:53:29S_a_i_n_thard, but not impossible though ;)
06:54:05 Quit kramer3d (Quit: Leaving)
06:54:05S_a_i_n_tI had a similar incident involving an iPod and a cup of coffee...
06:54:10darkenvyair duster? its a retty tight connection to see anything
06:54:31S_a_i_n_tI took out the battery and washed it in distilled water and let it dry *thouroughly*, and it was fine.
06:55:01S_a_i_n_tI wouldn;t necessarily suggest that here though.
06:56:06S_a_i_n_tI can't remember the mechanics of the buttons underneath (how they make contact) so, I'm not sure what to suggest.
06:56:54darkenvyits like a small pcb square on top of the main pcb square. connected by 4 connections of solder. thats the best I can explain it
06:57:49darkenvyit clicks... so it must be something underneith or a connection on the backside of the board? idk
06:59:50darkenvywhat are my options man? its not really sellable now, except perhaps craigslist and sell it to some poor sap :\
07:01:05S_a_i_n_tprobably better to just keep it.
07:01:21S_a_i_n_tgot yourself a 30GB portable HDD ;)
07:01:51darkenvyha yea
07:02:27darkenvythe whole point why I ebayed this is because this was the best player I could get rockbox on (and upgrade to 240gb. (dont ask I just want ^^ ))
07:02:52S_a_i_n_tIf you're honest, the resale is very, very poor...if you're not, karma :/
07:03:13S_a_i_n_tA new logicboard is the best option if you really want to keep it.
07:03:24S_a_i_n_tsometimes you can find them cheap.
07:03:33darkenvyhow much should those cost? Ive seen them for $80
07:04:01S_a_i_n_ta secondhand one, assuming perfect working order...70~80 USD, yeah.
07:04:15darkenvyall are going to be second hand XD
07:04:46S_a_i_n_tsometimes you find "my iPod just stopped working" and its just the HDD ribbon disconnect from the logicboard ;)
07:05:09darkenvyokay in your honest opinion, do you think that HDD music players are dissapearing? I hate the idea that 16-32GB players are going to be the only option. its like were going back in the past just to transfer to 'flash memory'
07:05:10S_a_i_n_tdarkenvy: Not always, there are plenty of new logicboards available.
07:05:41S_a_i_n_tAnd, yes. I think HDD players are a rare breed now.
07:05:57S_a_i_n_tFlash is just so much cheaper and more reliable.
07:06:26darkenvythat is true but its still more $ per gig than hard drives
07:06:55darkenvyfor music players
07:08:08darkenvy(also between you and me, I like holding something in my hand and having to grip something. these new players you could probably eat )
07:08:08S_a_i_n_tI like flash as I have no need to carry me entire music collection, even if I did...I couldn't as there is no 2TB DAPs ;)
07:08:37S_a_i_n_tI prefer small form factor personally, I'm a Nano man myself.
07:08:44darkenvyah XD
07:09:40S_a_i_n_tIt's really hard to say what to do in your situation though...I'd just keep it as a "portable HDD" and hope I find a cheap logicboard one day.
07:09:47darkenvyyea I carry my whole collection, im the music man in the group. ihome at work, ihome2go boombox, sound system at home, car player, parties, im that guy
07:10:15darkenvyand FLACs are a nessesity
07:11:23darkenvyokay I think im gonna look for an ipod LOCALLY and test drive it in person XD. now I got lots of spare parts :D
07:12:00S_a_i_n_t'cept the logicboard ;)
07:12:11darkenvywell yea lol
07:12:35S_a_i_n_tif you were *really* keen, perhaps you could get a busted logicboard and desolder one of the buttons from it.
07:12:55S_a_i_n_tyou can't really break it any more.
07:13:06darkenvyI bet if I unsolder that button I could dust it and resolder can, but, she's pretty much unusable as a dap.
07:13:33S_a_i_n_tand, yes...possibly.
07:13:39darkenvyI have a busted logic board, my fried ipod! (I put it into the old 12V charging docks.... wouldn't you know...)
07:14:54darkenvyapple must absolutely make everything the least reverse compatable as possible
07:16:03darkenvywell hey man thanks for your help s_a_i_n_t
07:16:11S_a_i_n_twell, generally speaking its a pretty bad idea to mix docks/chargers unless you *know* they're compatible.
07:16:22S_a_i_n_tand, np. I didn't really do much ;)
07:16:23darkenvybut it fit :|
07:16:32darkenvywhat if I was an idiot?!
07:16:32S_a_i_n_tHope you get it sorted though, cheaply.
07:16:46darkenvyyea no kidding....

13:35:34kugelpeople can never safely turn on absolute mode because it's not clear if skins supports touchregions, so each skin should default to grid mode IMO
13:36:53kugelI think that's especially a problem on cowond2 which shares themes with ipodvideo on the theme site
13:37:22JdGordonno need for an extra tag to do it, if any regions are defined that is enough to go into stylus mode

15:41:07kugelJdGordon: it works ok here, but I do have a optical track ball, which is quite different from the normal ball

18:53:35bluebrotherbieber: do you know how much interest's around in having a Windows setup program for the Theme Editor? And what do you think about fonts: should an installer be able to download them?
18:54:07bieberI don't know that I've heard anyone wanting one, so I don't really know how much interest there is
18:54:26bluebrotherI've got it basically running so I could start putting installers on my download page and give integrating it into the deploy scripts a look
18:54:45bieberThat would be great :)
18:55:01bluebrotherhmm, maybe I should try to make that download page count download numbers. Unfortunately I don't have any access to server stats :/
18:55:18bieberCan you serve them through a PHP script?
18:55:33bluebrothersure, the file listing already is a php script ;-)

18:56:35bieberbtw, I'm working on getting things drag/droppable at the moment, do you think it should automatically generate code when you move something around or make the user trigger it?
18:57:20bieberI got some auto-code generation going last night, but the problem is that when it generates the code it gets reparsed and rerendered, so the user's selected item won't persist
18:57:28bluebrotherhmm, not sure. Having the user trigger it might cause users forgetting about it. Automatically generating code might cause user-crafted code getting modified.
18:58:06bieberThat's my other concern, it can screw up formatting a little bit
18:58:46bluebrotherI'm tending towards having the user to trigger code generation. Maybe draw a red background when items have been changed until the user generated code from it?
18:58:56bieberOh, that's not a bad idea
18:59:06bluebrotherbtw, I like the code completion :)
18:59:22bieberI'm thinking I'll throw in a keyboard shortcut, if I can find a letter of the alphabet I haven't already used ;)

19:18:39bieberWould it be too much trouble to build an rpm?
19:18:59bluebrotherno, someone only needs to write the spec file for it.

21:50:46kugelgimp doesn't do a good job
21:51:27bluebrotherandroid doesn't handle svg icons?
21:51:35kugelgood question
21:51:52bluebrotheryou can try exporting as bitmap from inkscape
21:52:23bluebrotherdepending on the size you need you can also check the other icons around (icns for mac and ico for windows)
21:52:37kugel"Bitmap files (.png, .9.png, .jpg, .gif) or XML files that are compiled into the following drawable resource subtypes"
21:52:47kugelsvg is xml isn''t it?
21:53:28kugeldoesn't look like it eats it though
21:54:12bluebrother"XML files that are compiled" doesn't sound like svg though. Rather like something specific to android.
21:54:43kugelbluebrother: can you do me 72x72, 48x48 and 36x36 pngs of it? I don't have inkscape installed
21:55:24bluebrothersure. Let's see how good the export is.
21:56:22kugeloh and a 24x24 would be nice too (for the notification bar icon)

21:59:23kugeloh wait, reading the icon guide. one shouldn't use the full size, but 60x60 for 72x72, 40x40 for 48x48 and 30x30 for 36x36 (for the app launcher icons)
21:59:33bluebrotherkugel: at
21:59:50bluebrotherhmpf, so I have to redo them again :(
22:01:11bluebrotherwhat size for the 24x24?
22:01:26kugelthey don't mention
22:01:57mtn1s: need some help understanding this snippet : (fixmul16) ... why lsl.l with #7 ?
22:02:03kugellauncher icons don't have 24x24, but a whild guess would be 20x20 :)
22:03:09mt^ also anyone who can help with CF asm
22:03:57mtiiuc, shouldn't it be lsl.l #8 ... ?
22:05:22bluebrotherhmm, did ImageMagick keep the background transparent or not?
22:05:27Buschelmt: you are working on the missing fixmul16 for the patch?
22:05:55kugelbluebrother: the ones on your site have transparent corners
22:06:07mtBuschel: Trying :)
22:07:09Buschelmt: if it works, fine :-) otherwise I would submit the patch and disable the Coldfire asm
22:07:44bluebrotherkugel: yes, but those are not the ones adjusted with Inkscape (for those icon guideline thingy)
22:08:36kugelthen I can't tell you :)
22:08:40mtBuschel: I want to have something committed tonight whether I get it or not, so if I don't get it tonight I
22:08:48mt*I'll disable the asm and commit
22:08:55kugelI can do the transparent border on my own if you like
22:08:57mt(or you commit if you want of course)
22:09:07Buschelmt: I have another change ongoing in this patch
22:09:08kugel(assuming that's what you worry about right now)
22:09:41mtBuschel: v08 ?
22:10:16bluebrotherkugel: padded versions uploaded.
22:10:47bluebrotherchecked with gimp, they do have a transparent background. Though I had to tell ImageMagick to convert one color to transparency :)
22:11:22kugelthey have white borders
22:11:53kugelor corners rather
22:12:16bluebrotheryou mean that few pixels on the edges?
22:12:26Buschelmt: an add-on to v08. we can use a faster fixmul31 implementation that will only show minor diffs (seldom +/-1) via dropping lsb
22:13:14Buscheln1s: you there?
22:13:17kugelbluebrother: yes
22:13:59mtBuschel: I remember something about the coldfire asm in wmapro_math dropping lsb ? or am I making that up ?
22:14:24Buschelmt: coldfire asm does it, the arm asm will do it ;)
22:14:24pixelmaGiova: do you have a D2 to test - and which builld is this exactly?
22:14:25kugelgimp doesn't show them, strange
22:15:12pixelmaGiova: and is there a difference if you touch the screen when in the WPS and in the menu?
22:15:13kugeloh wait it does
22:15:17Giovapixelma: yes, I've got it, I'm testing it with the latest build 27698
22:15:37kugelbluebrother: gimp can fix those, I'll do it. thanks a lot
22:15:48bluebrotherkugel: already uploading new ones
22:15:58bluebrother(and finished ;-)
22:16:04kugeloh cool :)
22:16:15mtBuschel: but fixmul16's current implementation isn't dropping lsb, right ?
22:16:34Buschelmt: correct for all implementations
22:16:35bluebrotherjust figured that I need to pass convert a different option so it keeps the present transparency.
22:16:40Giovapixelma: no, no differences, it just loops in the action
22:16:45pixelmaGiova: maybe you could try daily builds on the D2 then - they don't go far back but maybe it's a quick and easy way to narrow the problem down
22:17:00bluebrotherbtw, do we have screenshots on android around?
22:17:03Giovaeither on 3x3 or absolute, using the touch screen or the phisical buttons
22:17:35Giovapixelma: ok
22:17:57Giovasearching for those daily builds
22:19:10pixelmaor if you can build your own and you know a last "good version", you could try a binary search
22:19:17Giovapixelma: thanks
22:19:24kugelbluebrother: can I have another 32x32 without pad please? :)
22:19:27mtn1s: Forget what I asked, I think I got it (acc<<7 will leave upper 25 bits of the result in acc + lower accext byte == result >> 16). (correct me if I'm wrong)
22:20:03kugelbluebrother: I think I posted some a few days ago. I can make one if you want. but it's not really thrilling as there's no cabbie port :)
22:20:15bluebrotherah, ok :)
22:20:50kugelhm, I wonder why I said 36x36 at all, it's not mentioned anywhere
22:20:56Giovapixelma: 27673 has got the bug
22:21:07bluebrotherso it's 32x32 without padding at all?

23:51:29n1swell, i read it as either preventing the stall that would come from doing movclr right after mac.l with the same acc OR there's a stall in switching the emac mode which would be needed to get the lower half of the result with a mac.l instr

23:57:32amiconnmt: Fetching the accumulator (using move.l or movcrl.l) directly after m(s)ac causes a two cycle stall
23:57:52amiconnSo we put the mulu.l (which itself is synchronous) inbetween
