Re: Resolution boosting thoughts

But as far as I understand, the ET4000 maxes out at 1024x768? Yes: https://archive.org/details/bitsavers_tsengLabsTicsController1990_11230195 This is a bit of a problem. I could probably live with 1024x768 (though higher would be nice). But where on earth do I find an LCD with a 1024x768 native res...

Re: GEMDOS on Apple Lisa

You should port EmuTOS on Lisa... and add support for Lisa external harddisk... I already looked a bit here and yep, an emuTOS port could be an interesting project. But I need to setup a good 68k cross compilation environment first. I think it would be better to port EmuTOS to the 68k Macs. […] :wi...

Re: 520ST External Floppy only

But since I have a really old 520St - one of the first in the US I'd say, maybe I can't do double sided at all? All STs [*] can do double sided floppy drives - it is a matter of the floppy drives, not the ST. [*] Well, all normal released ones. I don’t know anything about prototypes. But a 520ST wo...

For Cubase you won’t need Vector Fonts, so NVDI 2.51 will save you some RAM. Otherwise I’d opt for NVDI 5, latest version. L...
