Re: How to copy multiple files at once?

If you're backing up the files, is there a reason you can't just use FCOPY and copy the whole disk at once ?

Re: Replacing 1040 ST FM keyboard with a 520 ST FM one - Drive's Busy Light always on

keyboards are interchangeable, so no issues there.

the drive light always on, is usually only because you booted without a disk in the drive. Does the light stay on even if you're running a game / application ?

Hi, Me again, being a newbie. How do i understand Devpac commands? Can anyone help please? WireLord55 What you need to understand about assembler/devpac is that it's all about moving memory values around (to the hardcore coders, I know this is not quite true :) ) rather than a set of commands that ...

Re: Found an LCD monitor that works

To use VGA, the monitor needs to support Horizontal refresh rates of 15kHz, which hardly any monitors do. The specs for yours aren't 100% clear, but it doesn't look like its compatible: http://cwdlimited.com/citizen/manuals/32CL710_Manual.pdf The way I read the OP's original statement, he is using ...

This is a handy list of monitors that have been tested:

Re: Utilize more than 1GB from SD Card UltraSatan

HDDriver should let you make up to 13 partitions.

your ultrasatan has two card slots. partition the top card however you like in Atari format, then get a 128/256/512k etc card and format that TOS/DOS and it'll be readable on a pc too, then use it as a 'swap' disk in the second slot.

Tons of support on GFA BASIC here.

because god knows how much money it will cost, not to mention my room, which is a clusterf**k

besides, i prefer emulation. cheaper and faster



then just use gfa basic in an st emulator.
