Re: CosmoEx Screencast can it replace VME video cards

Maybe running an atari emulator on CE and degrade ST to keyboard/mouse input would solve this thing... Thinking about how this would work... Clicking on CE_HATARI.PRG would run Hatari on the CE/Pi while prompting the user to switch to the HDMI display, and when Hatari closes it gives keyboard contr...

Re: Enhanced port to db9 mod/program?

What about having the driver use the XBIOS function Ikbdws() to send a string of keycodes to the IKBD based on which Jagpad buttons were pressed? The game can then read the IKBD's buffer w/o having to use TOS... Believe me I wanted to make something like this over 20 years ago but just didn't have t...

Re: Trapped II

Ok, here it is the STe version of Trapped II... Someone will have to copy it to a blank disk image but will also run right off a hard drive. Plus the Readme is missing but it's the same as the original version.

It will depend on what hardware you have. You could use JayMSA to create an image of the game disk: http://phoenix.inf.upol.cz/~opichals/jay/files/jaymsa18.lzh Alternately, if the disk is not protected you could try copying the files on a modern computer and zipping them to share here.

Problems with Windows 10

So Steem 'was' working fine under Windows 10 before but when I accendently double clicked on a ST image in a zip file, I got a black screen. Since then anytime I try to use Steem it doesn't respond. I tried deleting & reinstalling a fresh copy and even tried the original version of Steem. Nothin...

Re: My interview with:B.J West (Jaguar related)

Thanks DarkLord. Much as i loved the Jaguar for the games it got right, the more and more i learn about how Atari just seemed happy to run with the policy of 'Jusat get the damn thing out on the shelf' rather than quality 1st, it makes it harder and harder to actually 'defend' the platform in light...

Well that's funny since they were bought out by Sony in 1993 to make games for the Playstation...

No surprise about UK gaming mags in the 90's making stuff up, I still have issues of ST Format who were the ultimate Atari fanbois.

I've read it, and there really wasn't much added that hadn't already been in the previous article. However it did state that the ST was used for more than just games like desktop publishing & music composing. But then again mentioning that was just another Tuesday for ST Format... :D

Re: Best ST joypad?

The Mega Drive/Genesis gamepads will *not* work in the ST's joystick port (both 3 & 6 button) because the extra button signals lock up the keyboard controler chip. That's why the mouse and keyboard lock up when you use it. Using it in the mouse port is fine though... The SMS gamepad will work gr...
