Differences between the 800 and 800 XL/XE

Ok, so i had an 800 before, to teach coding, but my mother thinks both machines are the same. What are some fundamental differences (please don't get too technical) between the two machines?

thanks :D

Atari ST question

Anyone can port Atari 2600 games, my question is this: Can the Atari ST handle Tempest 2000 or, going deeper, Crysis (if fitted with a 2018 graphic card)?

Is this possible?

Could (with some modification) an Atari ST run any games meant for 90's arcades (I.E Star wars Trilogy arcade, Jurassic park)

or would it have to be cut down port?
genuinely curious

From Commodore Basic to GFA/Omikron

So, I've been programming in Commodore basic for a bit (mostly changing color in assembly, such and such) and was wondering, if I went the ST route (might re download hatari down the road) what would be some changes that I would be dealing with?

primarily for GFA basic and Omikron

Re: Atari ST basic question

C++'s error messages are so cryptic. at least BASIC gives me an idea of what happened.

Re: Atari ST basic question

I really wouldn't bother with Atari ST basic. There are too many bugs to mention: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atari_ST_BASIC It was bundled with my first ST (can't remember the revision) and I found it cumbersome. When used to Sinclair or BBC BASIC, STOS or GFA BASIC is a far more useful language...

Atari ST basic question

I have Revision D and was wondering, how do I replicate the bugs from the original version on the Revision? This is purely academic on my part as I'm still getting used to the ST as a whole. Nice machine though. Real damn nice.

Re: why use ASM anymore

the tutorial for Devpac is good, but the programs won't run, and i can't see the error because Hatari goes too fast. i've since stopped using it.

i find that somewhat distasteful, i expect to be respected just like anyone else. of course, it may not be the case, either way, safety first. remember the I Love You Virus? no i am not drunk, just somewhat anxious.
