Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

I want to use it on my Falcon so that I do not need to load in drivers for HDD and fixes for TOS like buffer fix, arrowfix, extra windows (via WinX for example). So now saying it is not compatible is really disappointing and upsetting. Nevertheless, It's a great replacement. and with each updates it...

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

Why is EMUTOS called EMUTOS ??? If I am right it is called EmuTOS because its main purpose was to be replacement for the original TOS-es in EMUlators and clones because of the Copyrights. Its purpose also was not to be backward compatible but just to provide enough compatibility to be able to start...

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

Do I need to repeat already said here - that there is return value of Ikbdsys, and it makes pretty much sense ? - EmuTOS ikbdsys does not return anything meaningful, because it considers this is not necessary to be compatible with TOS. - AtariZoll's game adaptations expect that ikbdsys returns a ne...

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

We are speaking about one piece of software copied multiple times. Also nothing is removed from EmuTOS. We are talking about adding something. It is a situation similar when TOS 1.04 was released. It was better but some programs wouldn't run because they exploited bugs and undocumented "featur...

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

Something for you lot here to ponder on....

Because if that person don't care, he d...

EMU is a bird, so is it following naming stuff using bird name? Like Sparrow or Falcon ?

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

So by REMOVING this undocumented/ exploit... No! You must read more carefully. It's not a case of REMOVING anything. It's a case of ADDING code to support a hack. Ah yes, thank you for clarification.

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

It is not about removing something, but changing EmuTOS code to satisfy one person's dirty (yes, dirty. Disassembling TOS to find undocumented vectors/hooks/variables to exploit is *not* clean) code. There are so many dirty tricks used, especially in games from the 80's, that it's virtually impossi...

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

Neither is mine, i am just translating. In short Emutos is not TOS and TOS bugs should be included only if many people used them as features. If it is just one developer... you speak of one developer, but one developer can be better than a whole bunch.... because one developer may have created more...

Re: new Nova drivers

It was Gerhard Huber, the creator of Nova card, whom gave them to me when I can't get mine to work years ago.
We thank him for it !!

And thank you for trying out my Mint guide. I hope it can help get more users to understand and use Mint.

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

Seriously though, the way I understand Emutos' scope is that it is not trying to recreate TOS but rather it tries to be a better TOS compatible OS for our Atari systems. With that in mind, the Emutos team needs to aim at better compatibility but at the same time, that should not include turning bug...

a) Visit this place and download the complete package. It doesn't matter that it says TT. Just download the VME8 package. That's my site being ripped... well Ok backed up... by Bug. My current site is here . Contents for the Nova are the same. New PHSW programs can be found at my site as well.

Re: Falcon NO display after NVRam replacement

Glad that it is working for you. No doubt that it is a great idea to use SD-IDE adapter and SD cards. I suspected my SD-IDE adapter was a walking wounded. I cannot test any more as I may have thrown it away in a fit of fury. What I remembered was that the same SD card was slower when using my SD-IDE...
