Lightbulb The definitive Macrosystem Casablanca hack thread!

Hi, for a lot of time there has been some rumour about the Macrosystem Casablanca being an Amiga sort of clone. Well, since WinUAE 2.7.1 we can now actually manage the contents of the Casablanca´s HDD. It can accept Draco Casablanca partition table identifier (CDSK instead of usual RDSK).

The interesting thing, is that the Casablanca is to put it easily, a low cost, slightly modified version of the DraCo that has some potential to do some Amiga-like interesting things. I believe that for example, a compressed audio player is easily doable since the audio hardware is just an integrated toccata.

There are many drawbacks, from an Amiga perspective:
-It has no Amiga chipset (no OCS, ECS, AGA or even RTG support). Graphics are pushed to its digitizer´s video output, by some unknown method.
-It has quite some hardware and software protection schemes to avoid piracy and duplication.
-It is little documented
-It cannot load workbench or start a new cli (seems it is a graphics issue, related to the absense of an OCS/RTG like compatibbility mode)

But there are also some notable advantages it offers:
-It is a low cost high processing power 68K unit
-There about 45.000 units out there
-It has 16 bit stereo sound sampling and playing capabilities which are toccata compatible (they may even be AHI compatible)
-Has a built-in scsi interface
-It has a nice LCD to hack
-DraCo Motion compatible video capture hardware is also included
-It can probably offer some new professional grade programs to Amigas and DraCo´s

So, unshelve your Casablancas and turn them on.
Share your HDD images so we can start hacking!

KICKSTART AND ROMS:

It has been verified that it has kickstart 40.68 (v3.1) that has been embedded into its roms in a non Amiga fashion.

U4 is a 512KB rom (M27C4002)
U5 is a 512KB rom (M27C4002), it has a label that says "Casablanca CROM 1.6-H (08.97)"
U11 has about 8KB rom (it is not a rom, it is a Microchip PIC 16C55-RC/P) which has the protection bit set and it is not readable by conventional methods. It has a label that says "16.3.98"

Then there is a software rom update, much like the DraCo´s used, much like AmigaOS 3.9 rom update worked. It is a file located in DEVS:CasablancaBootFile.

All rom contents (hardware and software based), at first sight seem to be somehow scrambled or encrypted to prevent prying eyes, like mine

CASABLANCA HARDWARE:

CPU:
MC68040RC25V
MC68040RC33V
MC68LC060RC50
X68060RC50

Most of the time these cpu have MMU but no FPU (due to budget reasons. A CPU without FPU is certainly cheaper).
Note that the 68040V processor is a 3.3 volts version of the 68040, which makes it pin and voltage compatible with any 68060.

SCSI:
Symbios 53C710
Fast scsi II (9MB/s aprox)
50 pin internal + external port

SERIAL PORT:
DB25 RS-232 (DraCo compatible, but not Amiga cia based compatible. Uses draser.device. Allows serial debugging of the Casablanca)

MOUSE PORT:
serial pc mouse/trackball

KEYBOARD:
old style AT 5 pin din keyboard

FLOPPY:
SMC super IO chip
standard 1.44 MB pc floppy drive

SOUND:
Analog Devices AD1845JST soundport (toccata compatible)

VIDEO:
Casablanca Motion (DraCo Motion clone that has the same hardware id 18260/23)

RAM:
Node type $A, Attributes $507 (CHIP), at $400C3000
2x 72 pin simm 60ns EDO

MOTHERBOARDS:
Casablanca mainboard: there are at least two motherboard versions
Casablanca Motion: there are four known versions which are (CMOT9840), V1.1, V1.2 and V1.3

LCD:
Itron CU20025ECPB-U1J
20x2 characters
5x7 dot character matrix
parallel interface

interesting - Has anyone tried running any games that support RTG or Dpaint and what about the fake AGA can any system friendly stuff run on that.
What about adding Draco to the Title.

I'm looking forward for this
Maybe Genetic Species. That's the only game I know that have support for Draco Motion.

Attempts have been made, but nothing with graphics has worked. Only cli commands redirected to a file, and then transfered to an Amiga for proper reading are possible.

Graphics are handled in a custom way that nobody knows (yet!) and they are not Amiga compatible. Maybe someone sometime can hack an RTG driver and make some use of it or document the existing unknown graphics interface (maybe ovlgfx.library is the key).

Ok thanks - I didnt know RTG stuff doesnt work and Genetic Species having support
Is the Fake AGA a command from S-S and I wonder if anything works with it like Dpaint......
:OK so it probably the "DraCoSetPatch 1.2 (the same as DraCos)" could be intresting
I really did consider buying one at one point and now I think WinUae has support in time id like to have a play around.

Can a HardFile be found anywhere....?

In The Zone! you can find the HDD disk contents of a working Macrosystem Casablanca with OS version 3.0.10.X

I hope copy protection has been successfuly removed.
To restore it, create the file /Casablanca/save/HDSernum
only containing:

CSN0xxxx

where xxxx is a long word with the serial number (in binary form).
The serial number is printed on the board inside the Cassie.

To comply with EAB´s guidelines when uploading stuff, AmigaOS 3.1 files have been removed from this archive, but you can easily restore them with your own copy of AmigOS 3.1 by adding this structure:

c/
AddBuffers
Assign
Copy
Execute
Version

libs/
bullet.library
mathieeedoubbas.library
mathieeedoubtrans.library
mathieeesingbas.library
mathieeesingtrans.library
mathtrans.library

Please, if you have a Casablanca HDD or floppy image, share it so we can all increase the knowledge and preserve its contents for future use.

INTERESTING FACTS:

*boot:Casablanca/Casablanca2 is the actual video editor which seems to share the same codebase as the legendary MovieShop from VlabMotion and DraCo fame. Furthermore, its audio and video operators seem at first sight compatible with MovieShop (version 5.x which are DraCo only releases).

*The folder boot:Casablanca/images/ contains the gadgets of the video editor interface and of the mouse pointer in IFF format.

*Fonts were sometimes sold as much as $79 per individual floppy, and are nothing but converted truetype fonts using TypeSmith to Compugraphic/bullet format.

*The version of the System software can be obtained by searching thru the boot:Casablanca/Casablanca2 file. It is shown next to the "$MSV:" string. The version number is in the format a.bb.c.nn where nn is replaced by an X when displayed. Date is taken from the "$VER: Casablanca" string, it is in parenthesis. Note: all "" characters are just delimiters, not part of the strings.

*The video and audio partitions (STB_VIDEO and STB_AUDIO) may be viewable with Alex Kazik´s Scene-Handler program, and can be backed up with ABackup/Diavolo Pro (this statement needs proper confirmation).

*It seems the video editor Casablanca2 has some calling parameters which might be useful for further hacking. So far I met with these: protected, nodebug, keepscreen, nomonitor, ibc98, playloop, casapro, enforcer, printinfo, philips, endtest, and serdebug. Any comments on how they actually perform is apreciated (of course, many of them, we can easily guess).

If someone wishes to tinker with the Casablanca rom images U4 and U5, please drop me a PM and I will send you the files.

These files are not easily readable, they must be scrambled or encrypted in some way, if some coder wishes to help here, I would gladly apreciate it.

Easy enough to decryption.

Out of curiosity, what kind of encryption was it? I'm guessing just data or address lines swapped around a bit, since the CPU has to execute off the ROMs.

For me Casablanca ROM has only easy software protection.
No hardware protection, only ROM data is stored in PC endian style, easy
enough to understand for everyone who see some protected 68k ROM's data.
Perhaps similar protection (?) has DraCo machine.

Here is full decoding routine:

No, the DraCo has no protection at all in its roms. There are two A3000 40.68 roms (in Amiga-like standard format), and another one which patches the other two, and it is easily viewable.

BTW, thank you for the information about the Casablanca roms.
If you are interested I can send you the DraCo rom too.

I was wondering if it could be possible to close Casablanca CopyProtection Version 0.1 romtag by using RemLib (from PeterK´s Iconlib archive), so that it doesn´t get in the way

Maybe the DraCo can benefit from some of these modules, if they could be splitted and loaded with loadmodule, and in this way it could have a serious chance in running Casablanca software.
