Re: CPU Clock Speed?

No, I have been speedrunning Prince of the Yolkfolk from time to time, as I still really enjoy that game, but regularly beating it isn't of any challenge anymore. ;) I've set up rules and categories for the game on https://speedrun.com. So far nobody has challenged my times; someone did submit a tim...

Re: CPU Clock Speed?

I think I'll require people to use 8 MHz when using an emulator, as it seems like that's the standard. :)
And if someone's using a real Atari ST, and the CPU Clock Speed happens to be at 16 MHz or higher... well, I hope it won't be too much of an issue.

CPU Clock Speed?

(I wasn't sure where to post this.) I was just looking into optimising a speedrun, and I discovered that if I put the CPU Clock Speed from 8 MHz to 32 MHz, screens load faster. But I'm not sure if I should allow this. How does CPU Clock Speed work? Is 8 MHz the standard? In DOSBox, I did up the amou...

Re: Hatari MIDI support

FYI: Jari Klemola just provided MIDI support for OSX & Windows versions of Hatari: https://listengine.tuxfamily.org/lists.tuxfamily.org/hatari-devel/2017/10/msg00000.html Once somebody else verifies that it works also on Windows (not just on OSX & Linux), the support goes in. Ah, I'll try t...

Re: Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk ROM

It's just that your 2 floppy drives - 1 in PC, other in Atari, can not read reliable what other drive wrote. I recommend that you open them and do cleaning - from dust with some small brush. Then clean heads with little alcohol. If that helps not, drive replacement may be necessary. Hm, seems plaus...

Re: Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk ROM

For a while it worked, but then I got an error on my pc saying PART.002 was damaged. What should I do now, if I want to retry? (I should at least get a screenshot of the error, probably) Just delete PART.002 and retry?

Issues playing games under emulator

Hey, I went with a vague title so I can reuse this topic in the future if need be. I'm trying to emulate Treasure Island Dizzy, and I've got a rom, probably from atarimania.com. In Steem SSE 3.9.1, it works with model STE, CPU speed 8 MHz, Memory Size 2 MB, and tos104uk. In Hatari 2.0.0, under the s...

Is there a way to find out your TOS and memory and such?

Hey, while trying to emulate games, I keep having issues. I try fiddling around with the settings, but often to no avail.
As there a way to find out the TOS and memory of my real Atari ST? If I replicate that, the games that work on there, should work on emulator, I reckon.

Re: Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk ROM

All Dizzy games I've got are probably cracked, is that a problem? Also: "Requires any ST,STe, Mega ST or Mega STe computer with at least one double sided disk drive." What's a double sided disk drive? Early ST machines were shipped with single sided disk drives, which could only read and ...

Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk ROM

Hey, is it true that there is no ROM of Prince of the Yolkfolk available on download?
In that case, could I perhaps provide one? I've got one on floppy, but I have no idea how to make a dump.
