Re: Tool to dump STe ROM?

I have just made a video to demonstrate the usage of PaCifiST's DUMP_ROM.PRG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXLdPy8eqEg Maybe some day AtariZoll's TOSDUMP1.TOS will have a nice UI and will become the new standard :wink: GUI, come on man ! That will eat whole 20 KB of RAM :D Hmm. but in other hand...

Re: Hard 'n' Heavy improved, final update

Hi Peter, I tested the game on my real TT (4mb ST RAM) with and without cache as requested in the readme. Cache on: works fine. Scrolling is very smooth and no problems. Cache off: Apart from the expected slower pace, the lower ~2 bricks screen level and below would every second or two 'shudder' an...

Re: Hatari 2.0.0 has been released

The problem here is that you ask some things that I do, while you can check/test in less time than you write it down here. How much time is needed to run Starglider for 20 secs in ST(E), Falcon, TT emulation modes ? OK, I did it - In STE mode sample playback was flawless. In Falcon mode game worked ...

More long talk, this time with little anger :D So, I did more tests, and got some surprises: Instead Windows 7 tried it in Win 8.1 - and 'miracle' - that SDL2 build worked. However, CPU load was not better, contrary, it was worse than SDL1 build. Another surprise: SDL1 build had less CPU load than i...

Running TT mode without cfg file resulted in same behavior. This GTBT.WAE is with samplerate of 50066 Hz. There is no much distortion, but if you listen carefully, there will be some jumps during playback like jumping couple secs ahead . Unless you tested on Linux and problem appears only in Win. v....

Re: Hatari 2.0.0 ... - sound issues on TT emul.

Yes, it is 1 year from release now, and I went only now in dealing with Hatari 2.0.0's TT emulation. Just was too busy with other things, not only Atari related. So, as I see PMMU emulation is pretty good now, what is great improvement, especially for my game adaptations. Tried couple games, and the...

Re: Apollo Team announces developing of Vampire standalone version to run as AMIGA and ATARI ST

This is a silly discussion. The fact that MiNT does not replace everything in TOS does not mean it's not a "proper" OS. Does that mean that TOS+NVDI is not a "proper" OS? EmuTOS+MiNT? EmuTOS was written specifically to boot MiNT without TOS. What about those odd operating system...

Re: "NEOLoad" Neochrome <-> Bitmap image converter

BMP, uncompressed is pretty much simple and straight format. I made in C conversion from 4 bit 320x200 BMP, what is always 32118 bytes, to Atari ST PI1 format, and all it is some 40 lines of C code. Conversion to NEO format needs only different header. So, doing reverse conversion, for NEO or PI1 to...

Re: "NEOLoad" Neochrome <-> Bitmap image converter

I don't see as some bigger flaw saving in 24-bit (16M colors) of Atari screens, pictures. If it is only 16 color, conversion to 4-bit format is trivial, and 100% accurate. Things are that 24-bit format dominates now. As I know you can not add some palette/original colors info to 24-bit BMP, because ...

Thanx Joefish. Works very well. I do color reduction and other processing mostly with Paintshop Pro 9 (Latest pre-Adobe v.) .

Re: STEEM new user

That could work. Another way is to not reset emulator after setting hard disk image file. You need then to run runnable hard disk driver at Desktop - from floppy image or from GEMDOS partition.

In Steem GEMDOS type hard disk emulation (so assigning some Windows DIR as partition) works only with regular TOS versions. Not with Magic.
