SilverLink USB Drivers Released
Posted by Eric on 2 January 2002, 06:51 GMT

Romain Lievin and Julien Blache of the Linux Programmer Group have released a set of drivers for SilverLink, TI's USB link cable. Both Windows and Linux drivers have been released, so developers will be able to easily use the cable now. Check out the project page for screenshots and more information.

Hmmm... Does anyone think it's a bad idea to make a grayscale scrolling skateboarding game. It will be king of like mario, with powerups eventually, and instead of killing enemies, you would jump over trash cans, gring on poles...

Let me know...

Actually, funny you mentioned James. I have been speaking with him, and asking questions. Bored Generation was the 1st version. (1 move, only trashcans... and no grayscale.)

Just bought a laptop without serial ports. Does anyone know if a can plug my black graphlink to an USB port, or if it would cheaper just to buy the way to expensive 50$ USB-cable?

Converting USB to other ports can be done, but it is extremely difficult to get everything to work. USB has only four wires and is much faster than serial, so it is much, much more complicated than just some soldering.

Erm. Short answer : no.

Long answer : actually a _grey_ graphlink would work with a USB-Serial adaptater (such as a Keyspan USA), but no way for a black link to work with such an adaptater. [but ermm... we're having a look at it... :)]

Anyways, I am studying an alternative cable (a USB link for $8). But, it will not be compatible with the SilverLink cable.
It was the same problem when people designed the parallel link cable for implementing a low cost alternative to GreyLink.

I'm in a similar position, having just bought a laptop with only USB ports. The SilverLink from TI works well, but their software is worthless. I tried installing TILP and the associated drivers and while the cable is plugged in, there is no problem. You can do anything with the USB cable that you can with any other graphlink. However, Windows seems to not like the driver. Whenever I install it, Device Manager tells me that the driver will be uninstalled when the computer restarts. It does this whenever the computer is restarted or the cable is unplugged. I realize that this is more a driver and Windows related question, but I don't see how someone with a modern laptop can avoid this. Does anyone else have this problem?
