Re: General Upgrade Advice

The peroxide treatment worked well for one of my STs, didn't work well for two other ones, they turned out very spotty.

Re: Falcon 030 Microbox board

For what it's worth, I travel to Mountain View on a frequent basis. Google (my employer) is a major sponsor of the museum (which is super close to Google's main campus) and I could try and talk to them when I'm back there in October.

Re: Screen flickering on Atari STe (not PSU-related)

It has to be a combination of two unrelated issues - only 2 of my 3 STEs are showing this behavior, but only when connected to the LCD TV and only after approx. 10-20 minutes. I suspect it's a cap on the main board (not PSU) that is somehow related to the RGB/composite output (see also http://www.at...

Re: Screen flickering on Atari STe (not PSU-related)

A quick follow-up in case anyone is running into the same issues. Never identified the cause, I bought an SC1224 and the issues never came up again. Seems to be related to the TV/Scart signal.

Re: New book release: Beyond The Borders [The Atari ST and The Creative People vol.2]

+1 to getting the physical copy. Yeah maybe my statement on the writing style was a bit too harsh. I agree that the language conveys the sense of wonder quite well. It's just that sometimes I have to re-read the sentences for a few times to grasp the meaning, but whenever I get tired of reading I ca...

Re: New book release: Beyond The Borders [The Atari ST and The Creative People vol.2]

Hi Marco, just received mine. I love both books, great concept, material and art design. Please keep up with this. I had hoped that the writing was better this time, and I got to say I am a bit disappointed that it didn't improve over the first book. That being said, every Atari (ST) fan should own ...

Screen flickering on Atari STe (not PSU-related)

Dear Atari Community, Two of my Atari 1040 STe run into screen flickering issues after 5-15 minutes. I suspected defective capacitors on the PSU and replaced both of them with recapped replacements, but that didn't fix it. I spent a lot of time researching the web for answers, but to no avail. I'm u...

Re: Screen issues with some demos on 1040STE

It'll take me a bit to reproduce this with various demos.
What I can say for sure is that it happened with at least two demos I recently ran:

1. Sea of Colour
2. Midnight Sun

IIRC both are full screen, not sure about high-color.
As for the display, I'm using a LCD TV via Scart cable.

Screen issues with some demos on 1040STE

Hi all, I'm running into weird screen issues with some Atari ST/STE demos on my 1040 STE, see attached photo. Basically, I have moving horizontal bars of black (and a few white) pixels running across the screen. I did not run into these issues with older software or games AFAICT. I have TOS 1.06 and...
