Re: New book release: Beyond The Borders [The Atari ST and The Creative People vol.2]

Just got mine in today! Looking forward to reading it, once

Re: Very first computer

In 1982/83 I bought a discounted, closeout 800XL from a local Magic Mart. It was $99. Next paycheck I got a 1050 drive, followed by an offbrand RGB monitor with the video cable for it. I can still remember typing in all the programs from the manual (Lightning!) and magazines but not being able to sa...

I'd contact Frank Lucas about the Pak/2 kits.

The Pak/3 stuff is pretty much luck - if you can find someone selling any. :(

Re: Recommended accelerator options for ST

The HBS640 T36 is the fastest option if you can locate one. An ST version of the wicher is certainly possible, I suspect that's where Exxos want to go, with fastram a lot of the drawbacks of lacking cache is mitigated, but no, the amiga version wont work with atari. I'm assuming you mean fastest of...

Re: Recommended accelerator options for ST

Most Games will not work with a 020 or 030 CPU booster ... You need a 68000 to run Games and no TOS 2.06. Better is 1.04 (ST) or 1.62 (STE). I'd not totally disagree with that statement but I'd have to qualify it - using the adapted games from PPera or Dbug, you can run many of them on accelerators...

I’d like to play some old games at faster frames rates. What accelerators or hardware upgrades might you recommend? Well, I could get a ban for this replay, but to be honest if you want to play smoother, faster ST games ( sprite ones, not the vector ones ), the best option ( and much more cheaper t...

I thought it disabled the blitter on the Mega STe and you had to run something

Re: CosmosEX v2 SCSI MegaSTE HELP!

Alan had a page at one time where he sold them. You might PM him for more
information.

The Lotharek one looks different than the one I have in my STacy. Alan's has
a power lead that hooks to the Ultrasatan, powering it as well.

Here is a picture of mine:
