Re: Re:

Never mind - I tried without and it works like a charm. I have connected the Falcon to my TV card now via composite. The quality is 2 times better than over the TV modulator into the card. It doesn't reach VGA of course but now I do not need to switch monitor cables but can launch a TV viewer on my...

Re: .App extension < How to use?

I you pass the .APP file to STEEM as a command lin argument, probably STEEM doesn't know that those are .PRG
Rename it to .PRG in that case and it should do work.

Or simply copy the .APP to a disk image or virtual hard drive and doubleclick on it.

Re: New Boot "Manager" insaneBOOT

Emutos.prg itself is probably not the problem but I don't know how well this program file version cleans the rest of the memory. But If I selected Emutos, I probably don't want to end in a boot loop. Any other useful ideas to have Emutos as an boot option and using Insane Boot? I like the "no w...

Re: New Boot "Manager" insaneBOOT

If I would us this to load Emutos from harddisk (using the official emutos.prg) , how will the boot manager behave on its second call?
E.q. boot manager in AUTO, and Emutos will execute AUTO again on its initialisation.

Maybe something like .emutosquit could be added?

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.11

Very nice!

I wonder how EmuTOS does handle the system clock on a Falcon with faulty Dallas chip?
Original TOS trash the time and date when returning from an application. What dos EmuTOS do?
FreeMint keeps date and time properly in this case.

Re: PLATOTERM - solving the screen redraw problem, need input.

vido, on TT/Falcon probably yes, on ST I'm not sure I am using only clones (Milan, FireBee) and on that computers are usable mostly only GEM software. On "powerful" Ataris are mostly users using "productive" software while on ST computers with less that 4MB of RAM are by my opin...

Re: PC app for copying files to an ST floppy image

The SainT emulator brings a tool that will create an .ST image if you drop a ZIP file on it. Pretty easy to use for the novice! This helped me, thanks!

Nice, I will try it.

Just for the record, on the German ST Computer PD series, disk 66 iirc, there is a Maziacs for SM124 which looked great but it didn't have much sound.

Re: Whizzcat\Delta Force Protracker Replay Rout

I have the 12khz STE Wizzcat around, with adaptions for GFABASIC and AHCC.

You can probably make this work in any other language.

Re: GFA Basic, STOS or Asm?

The OP indicated existing knowledge in BASIC dialects so larning a new dialect shouldn't b out of th question.
Pure m68k would give best results but is also has a hardcore learning curve.

Regardless of the language used, I'm curious for any new release on the ST so good luck :)

FTP would be sufficent aswell as it could be used for recursive downloading from the Atari, something the current web interface does not handle.
