Re: CosmosEX 3.0

I searched a long time for a SCSI-2 to IDC cable but wasn't able to find one. Had a company in the states that makes custom cables on demand send me a quote. They wanted over $100 + shipping for that cable! 8O I ended up buying a standard SCSI-2 to Centronics cable and then a Centronics to IDC cabl...

Re: CosmosEX 3.0

I'd like to have one of these for my Falcon.
However, according to the website there is only cabling for internal SCSI. I'd like it external.

Does anyone know how to get hold of a SCSI cable that fits the Falcon external connector and CosmoSex 3?

Re: STE horizontal hardware scroll

register ff820f is of a byte size for STE ( falcon has a different register which is of word size ) So does it mean that on STE there is a limit of a one shot playfield composed of 4 horizontal screens that can be hardware scrolled? ( byte = 256 = 3 * 80 words per scanline which can be skipped by s...

Re: Screen issues with some demos on 1040STE

It's known that MPP (which is used in these two demos) is a bit too tight on timing so these infamous dots can show up. The way to get rid of it is to switch off the machine, and on again. And hope it will work. I tried Sea of Colour on a number of machines before releasing it, and it very rarely go...

Re: Madmax's tracker ?

I think for the early ones (Readme, LSD, LCD, SNDS, B.I.G.) it was mostly C-64 compositions. So as far I know, those songs needed no composition tool. Although the note-player needed to be remade for the ST and sound programming done from scratch as well. For newer original compositions (like Thalio...

Re: Atari Falcon - how many sound channels? 8 or 16?

Hi, how many sound channels Atari Falcon had? It has four stereo pairs in hardware but only one pair can be connected to the internal DAC at once. By adding more external DAC's to the DSP port (with devices such as FA8) you can get all 8 channels out individually. For games and so forth that don't ...

Thanks for the info! The RGB cables are indeed RGB, but sadly seems like I am out of luck with this display. Outside of importing a color monitor (would end up costing roughly 300USD due to shipping), I think my only option at this point is to a) give up or b) go with your advice (B) and get an STe...

Re: OS X - video capture

thanks for answer! bmp video recording is sufficient enough. Hatari dump to BMP is the way to go. Don't use external recorders such as Quicktime X, Snapz Pro X or ScreenFlick, they will not make a perfect framerate video like Hatari itself does. If the end goal is Youtube, I recommend running the H...

I wanted to try Drone but it crashes... If you are using Hddriver, enable "Fast ACSI" (Settings/SCSI Driver) and it should run. Drone is not super-picky on drive speed and about 500k/sec should be enough (so any SCSI from back in the day should work). We made the demo as a tribute for Ult...

The poll really need a comment field as well.

I'd pay more if it supports full SCSI-speed and 1.44/2.88MB floppy.

Hatari is often used as a development tool rather than an exact emulation of the real thing.
