Re: Hatari 2.1.0 Linux Falcon emulation sound issue

Re: Forum running slow

Was fine for me couple of days ago, but for last few hours was slowish for me too. It seem temporary though, as now things seem fast (everything loads within seconds instead of ten(s) of seconds) again. Maybe server is just occasionally under load or running out of memory?

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

Thank Eero, that's useful information. I would think though, that the most interesting part of using MIDI at the ST is precisely MIDI applications, and not just playing game's music. However, it is not too difficult to implement this MIDI serial bridge to the Linux side. So there is no reason to no...

Re: Software alternative

Ace tracker needs DSP, and Firebee doesn't emulate it (yet).

Even if it would, it's possible that both CPU & DSP would need to match closely to Falcon speeds (which they won't) for music to sound correct.

Re: Hatari 2.1.0 Linux Falcon emulation sound issue

Thanks for testing!

When I get time, I'll install portaudio and will try whether I can reproduce the issue.

When you say that Hatari crashes after few minutes, is this just from idling in TOS v4 desktop, or are you running some program?

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

I'm not a MIDI expert, but I'm not sure this is the most suitable method for the ST, I would need to look into this. The problem is that the ST, contrary to other computers, has MIDI built-in. Then most ST MIDI software expects a very specific hardware with very precise predictable timing. As long ...

Re: USB MIDI with Minimig/Amiga core

Impressive! Too bad it requires specific hardware. Implementation of MT32 in FPGA would be good. There's a lot of MIDI playback SW on Linux that could be used, and one can forward the MIDI data over network with e.g. socat, if one doesn't want to run e.g. Timidity on the ARM side. For some examples...

Re: There are tons of BEST of threads, how about the WORST ST games?

Regarding games with "killing" in their title, "The killing game show" was great.

Especially the replay-from-start where one could continue at any point from the previous game play.

I don't remember even any of the modern games providing that.

Re: PLATOTerm rewrite using GODLIB

IMHO GCC telling e.g. about potential array overwrites (on highest optimization levels) and where they happen, beats searching for those problems at run-time, regardless of how good the debugger is. :-) Note: I'm not saying it's better, just that (especially newer) GCC versions can do some useful an...

Are you keeping it compiling also with GCC? That has much better error checking than Pure-C which is sometimes very useful.

Re: Drone by Dead Hackers Society demo glitches

Are you using Hatari version v2.1? Hatari can show more pixels than most (analog) monitors would with real HW, so demos don't necessarily clear all of their borders fully. Real HW can also have different video wake up states after boot, and between Atari HW having different chip versions. Depending ...
