Re: MyAES is here!

I've used 256 colour icons with Thing! since 1997 or so. Please tell me how! :) By using an ICONS.RSC with 256 colour icons. Running perfectly fine on my Milan in 1280x1024 in 16 bit. Never tested with 32 bit. If the colours are all wrong then put a file "icons.pal" in $THINGDIR. The stan...

The link on AtariUpToDate is not very up to date, actually it's been outdated for many years. The correct URL is http://joska.atari.org.

Re: eBay deal gone bad

I know it is not perfect but should be good enough, Definitely not. This "packaging" could not withstand normal handling. Why do you think you never see a new computer being shipped in a sloppy cardboard box stuffed with old newspapers? If this had happened to me I would have asked for a ...

Btw I wonder how this will work with a MonSTer card... Also, LaceScan would extend the resolutions even more. 800++ horisontal resolution would be possible in 16 colour.

Re: 4MB Upgrade & 16MHz Booster progress

This mod is very similar to the one I did to one of my Stacys almost 20 years ago. That was simpler though, as the LCD controller's screen output did not depend on clock speed I could just speed up everything except for the YM, WD and ACIA baud clock. The Stacy already had fast enough RAM and ROM so...

I guess you have checked the obvious - does the floppy get 5V? And does it get *enough*?

Re: Inventronik Gigafile in Mega STe

The SCSI interface will be replaced by the Inventronic adapter, which will take care of connecting the external ACSI port to the ACSI bus.

Re: Inventronik Gigafile in Mega STe

Don't use the internal SCSI if you can avoid it, it can't access disks larger than 1Gb.

You can use the internal ACSI without problems - the internal SCSI interface already does that. Remove the SCSI-interface and connect the Gigafile, using the adapter you linked to.

Re: Mega ST keyboard and 1040 ST

I went the other way and modified my PC keyboard to suit the ST/PC/XT layout. I find it much better for programming. The location of the Control keys especially is horrible on ISO/AT keyboards.

Anyway, I think this is an amazing project. How will you make the case?

Re: Autostart programs in MINT.

There are several ways to do this:

Thing can autostart applications.
So can Taskbar if you use that.
You can use the "run" command in xaaes.cnf and n_aes.cnf

Re: RTC module for MegaSTe MonSTer

There are actually AA lithium batteries with 1.5V power around, so two of those and it should last a lot longer. Wouldn't it be easier to just go for the 3.6V cell troed used?

Because the expensive/hard-to-find lithium battery inside the Mega STe is dead, and with a MonSTer board installed I thought it might be a good idea to try out one of those cheap eBay RTC modules which uses easily available and cheap coin cell batteries. Good point. However, there are other solutio...

Slimline floppydrive in a Falcon

I just put up a simple page describing how I replaced my Falcon's floppydrive with a slimline drive from a laptop.

I guess it will work in an ST/E too, but I have not tested that.
