View Full Version : CV 64 error !?
08-31-2003, 09:29 AM
I've just installed a Cybervision 64 graphic board in my 4000D.
The early startup screen shows the board as working.
But when I boot the computer an alert screen is showing : "Fatal Roxxler Failure Please contact support hotline."
Does someone know if this means that there is a hardware failure or a faulty configuration.
I seem to remember, that there's a jumper that disables the Roxxler chip .. Also you can specify USEROXXLER=0 in the monitor icon's tooltypes and see if it starts working then.
Basically it seems like the Roxxler chip is knackered..

mhhh . . i suspect a hardware failure.
Wich SuperBuster revision have you installed?

Don't panic too much! I know I've seen this error before on my 4000 w/CV643d. It scared the sh!t out of me, too!
It was a faulty configuration, but damn, I don't remember what was faulty, or what I did to fix it. Ugh... What version of CyberGraphX are you running? Seems like I remember that error WAY back on like version 2.x series.
Hmm... Actually, I just found my notes on it. D'oh! I was an idiot, and this may not help you. The Cv64/3d does not HAVE a Roxxler. Thus, if you try to enable it, you will get that message. If you have a regular CV64... eeek, it may have a roxxler problem. :-(
(Of course, if you have a CV64/3d like me, it just confirms that, indeed, you do not have a Roxxler. ;-) )

I've buster rev 11
the error was with CybergraphX 2.xx
with Cybervision v 3.xx there no error but the card doesn't work at all !
And Showcgxconfig report 0 graphic device installed
Seems like the board is faulty ....

so . .is it a CV64 or a CV64/3D?
-edit- the two boards, has different drivers

as I wrote it in the post it's a CV64 not a CV64/3D

Well, I'm still not sure I'd write the board off as defective, yet, though. There's a LOT of stuff that can cause CV/CGX to act strange. (As in, more than we can debug from here. ;-) )
If the card is recognized and shown as functional by the Amiga Early Startup, yet not shown at all in Showcgxconfig, I'd still be suspicious of software, at least until you have a config you're fairly sure is valid.
What I'd do next is try to set up a clean test environment.
If you can format yourself a second boot partition or removable disk you can boot from (Zip drives are excellent for this on Amiga), just install the bare minimum of whatever Amiga OS you are running to that. (which version AmigaOS ARE you running, anyhow?? -- don't the 3.0 ROMs have some problems with CyberGraphX?) Then install your version of the CyberGraphX software and apply the latest patches for your version from VGR.com. See where you can end up from there...
The clean install removes a lot variables in one shot.
Also, what processor is your miggy running?

the best RTG system for CV64, is Picasso96 2.0.
I'm useing from years with my CV64 without a single crash.
I've test even CGX 4.2xx, but MagicMenu was terribly slooow!
Try P96 that is free. (CGX4 and above are commercial).
Remember to delete all CGX related files, before install P96.

Well thats because MM is terrible hack ..... :-D
CGX_V4 with the latest updates is the best RTG-SW one can get.
Fast stable compatible (duh it is the standard) and you even get
Also, P96 AIN'T NOT free !!!!!!
It is shareware, and you MUST pay for it if you run it for longer than a short eval-time
(except offcourse when licenced as under Amithlon,OS4 or with Prometheus
If you run the unreged version, you(not directly tartgeted at anyone special here)
are just as much a pirate as someone copying the CGX_V4 CD.

MM is a terrible hack, used with CGX.
As already said, CV64 works better with P96.
08-31-2003, 04:47 PM
Yup..ditto to that,
I had no end of trouble getting Cybergraphics V3 to work with my CV64, so I tried P96 and it worked first time!

When I had a CV64 I used P96 and it worked really well :-)
