Finally, I am confused! In a 1040STE with 4MB RAM and TOS 1.62, I haven't managed to set the UltraSatan so as to correctly show the date. The time is set correctly but it displays 25/03/28. Is there anything new that solves the problem? Does anybody else have the same problem?
From my experience on PC's I remember that DOS could't see more than 640KB, but only using techniques like: expanded memory and extended memory. My question is: does Atari TOS manage memory in a different way and see directly its sum (e.g.4MB)?
I had heard, back in the '80s or '90s that they were preparing a coin-up platform based on Atari ST that would have been the rival of "Arcadia", which was based on Amiga. But since then I have never heard anything about it.
All the things you write are very logical. But I don't know if Atari owned a factory in Japan at the time the first ST's were designed. They had a construction line in Taiwan for sure. I am very surprised to see early ST's designs signed from Atari Corporation Japan.
Hi to all, In a broken by debt Atari and without the MOS in his possession, how could Tramiel keep the ST so inexpensive and still make profit? How is it possible for his immediate competitors to be so expensive?
A question of historical nature. The blitter chip, as I know, was standard for ST in 1987 (I think in Mega ST). Why no earlier? Is this specific moment related to the lawsuit between Commodore and Atari related to the Amiga chip set?
