Re: Do you think the limitation to RE-edit the messages in Atari-forum is appropriate?

I voted 'No' before reading the new posts in the other topic... oops. I'd probably vote 'Yes' now, after finally reading an explanation. :P

Re: Editing a message

We made the change to prevent abuse. While the amount of times its happened is small, the change was made to prevent it happening again. The ideal solution is to have shadow copies / versioning of posts, so that if something questionable happens, mods/admins would be able to see what edits had been...

Re: Allister Brimble's Dizzy tracks

doesnt jam have default of 3 min which can be changed? Yes, but this only has an effect if the track either does loop, or is longer than 3 minutes. ;) The music driver (Amiga soundtracker chip routine) needs two values on init. D0 - Sub tune D1 - Loop yes/no Currently the SNDH sets loop to off. How...

Allister Brimble's Dizzy tracks

Hi, it's me again! When playing SNDHs from the Dizzy series in JAM or SND Player, tracks done by Allister Brimble don't loop, whereas tracks from other composers, such as 4-Mat, do. This is probably not specific to the Dizzy series, but they are the only games I'm looking into right now. ;) Does an...

Re: Editing a message

I think for adding [SOLVED] to the title, it is easy to just report the post. It is not standard for forums to have titles modifiable by regular members, as far as I'm concerned.
However, something that I wouldn't like to report my post for is fixing a typo or spelling error...

Re: Editing a message

It's common practice to restrict editing at most forums. To me it was more surprising they allowed it. The change seems logical. In the past year I've been active on 10 forums besides this one, and none of them restricted editing with one specific local exception (an auction section). Most forums d...

Hm, yeah.
Can you get your messages edited by reporting them, or does reporting not allow you to input a reason? (I don't dare trying, just in case it does something bad)

Re: Using 4096 colours

If you're converting images perhaps from other platforms rather than new compositions then I've enjoyed using photochrome http://www.leonik.net/dml/sec_pcs.py With some of the options, for static pictures displayed over 2 or more frames you can emulate 226,981 colours on STe. On older CRT TVs they ...

Re: Using 4096 colours

NeoChrome Master ( http://dhs.nu/files.php?t=single&ID=25 ) can run in STe mode, but to avoid confusion, the STe has a PALETTE of 4096 colours - low resolution can still only show 16 different colours the same as the normal ST, but the 16 colours on the STe can be from the bigger palette. Progr...

Re: Using 4096 colours

I don't think that degas can use it. That program is just too old, at that time the STE didn't exist. But i think quite some other program can, and since the DEGAS picture format is very simple, they can surely load it. Have you tried Vision for example? (announced somewhere here in the forum, have...

Using 4096 colours

I found an old topic on the same subject, but maybe there is new knowledge nowadays, so I figured I'd ask again, after almost 10 years. I read that the STE can display 4096 colours instead of just the 512. Can DEGAS+ use these extra colours? I've always had only the 3 bits per colour at my disposal....

Re: Change cursor speed in Hatari?

I did a Ctrl + F for 'cursor' on all 9 pages of this section, and didn't find anything except for this one. But it might have been typed otherwise, like the recent misspelling 'curser'.

Re: Questions about MaxYMiser

You can also lower your maximum YM instruments volume, to match samples volume. Yup, but I think that's not desirable. Especially because you might want to use a buzzer somewhere. Anyway: do you know how to assign a digidrum sample to an instrument, so that it plays the sample every time there are ...
