Re: SC1224 / Philips CM 8833 MK I colour monitor problems

I'd swap the second 1224's LOPT into the first and see what happens. I'm no monitor expert, but there's always a few on amibay who are. Particularly of the Philips 8833/Commodore 1084.

Had the problem you're having with the first one before. Was LOPT on mine, but could also be other things.

Re: Biased eBay guide

Well, it is true, the Amiga is a more capable machine in most respects. I'd give it the edge on being easier to put more memory in and a nicer keyboard. Both the ST and Amiga are still fairly crude machines, though. So if you're willing to mess with them in 2016, neither machine's flaws should put y...

All the existing ones do AFAIK is break software compatibility.

A small problem with MagiC and Desk accessories

Does anyone know how to get MagiC to load desk accessories on boot? It wouldn't be a problem but I need COPS loaded to disable key clicking sound. Opening it manually every day is driving me nuts.

Re: Where to find How To documentation on Re-Casing STe

I've done something like this before. Only with a lot less thinking before I acted. Needless to say you have a better result. How did you deal with the back of the keyboard? I remember mine being really wobbly like that - before I eventually gave up and put it in a normal STE case. I think moving th...

Re: Best environment for 4MB STE

I've seen that site before. Funny thing is though, It's all unusable! Whoever runs it has copied and pasted files from 1.44mb discs into a zip. All these installers expect to be run from floppy, so this is totally useless on an STE because it won't fit in a 720k disc. I can't even get TOS 2x to read...

Re: Best environment for 4MB STE

The version of NVDI I have doesn't do fonts. That's why I installed SpeedoGDOS.

Obviously I want multitasking, that is why I installed it.

What would be the lowest memory using version of NVDI which does fonts, and where can I get an english version?

Same for magic. Where?

Best environment for 4MB STE

I just took my STE out of storage. It has NVDI 2.51, SpeedoGDOS, Geneva with NEODESK 4. This is a nice environment, but It's using up 1.5mb of ram. It's just whatever software I could find in a disk image archive. What's a more sensible setup to save ram? I know there's lots newer NVDI etc but how m...

Wrong refreshrate or H and V swapped

Though why you mention "digital mode" I've no idea. Ataris don't output CGA style digital RGB. What on earth are you feeding the intensity pin?????
