Re: Best Electronics

Ha, I thought for sure the last items I ordered from him were going to cost a small fortune to ship. It was the Wizztronics Falcon rack mount kit, and some smaller things. I think from California to Utah was like 30 bucks. Wait, what? He still had one of those? I thought he sold out a *long* time a...

Re: Gauntlet II vs Ranarama (ST) - Which Is Best?

Both are good but I'm going with G2.

All those "modes" in multi-player win it for me.

Re: TOS 3.1 desktop for the ST

AFAIK, TOS v3.06 on my Pak equipped STacy is a 32 bit OS so I'm assuming
this version would be as well.

Re: MEGA ST 2 - what could this strange add on be?

I usually take the cover off and clean it once a year. Oddly
enough, there's not that much dust at all... maybe I've got
a great housekeeper. :)

Re: MEGA ST 2 - what could this strange add on be?

The fan appears much more noisy to me than on another Mega ST I tried (Mega ST 1 in that case). So it might be just to turn the fan on and off? Ues, it does look like some sort of "Noise Killer". My advice is to remove it and don't bother with the fan. Under normal circumstances the PSU d...

Re: PAK68/3 and FRAK/2 schematic

Good grounding is a must. Over and over again it's repeated that
you must ground sufficiently. I think I have -3- grounds coming off
the Pak board and going somewhere on my STacy's motherboard.

HTHs.

Re: Hard disk driver update plan

Hmm, I use Mtools with Kubuntu Linux here to access the files on my STacy's Ultrasatan, 2 gig SD card with no problems at all. Don't know how they do it but it works. :) Of course, I think this is something entirely different than what you are working on. Good luck and thanks for your continued Atar...

Crank up Stardust with a good stereo system and look at all the demo's
posted from the link already provided.

There is some righteously cool eye-candy for the STe out there! :)

it's because of rounded values. For example 24 out of 64 is 37.5%, not 38%


Ah, kinda figured it was something like that. Thanks. :)

Re: Graphics card for ST/STE?

Does this setup work with native resolutions
or is it one of those where RGB output would
have to go to a separate monitor?

If it's an "all in one" solution, I'd be interested.

Thanks. :)

Re: Wizztronics Rack Case for the Atari Falcon 030

Hmm, I thought I put a picture of the back up on Ebay but apparently I didn't - or maybe it didn't go through? Anyway, my bad. Here is an older picture of the rear, after I first moved my first Falcon into it. There are cut-outs for several options. The SuperVidel wasn't even in existence when this ...
