Re: There are tons of BEST of threads, how about the WORST ST games?

Karting Grand Prix... possibly the worst apology for a game that ever existed. Think 'Supersprint' but drained of any fun and playability. ATROCIOUS! ...20 odd plus years later and the thought of laying out a fiver for this still hurts... and I still have it :lol: Btw, Joe Blade and Edd the Duck wer...

Re: Need a link to someone who mods STs

I'd recommend getting a Gotek drive fitted. This allows you to use a USB stick instead of floppy disks.

This is the solution I went for when 'retrofitting' one of my STs.

Works well :)

Re: Most catchy st tune ever

Well I have spent all morning so far with the tune from Ranarama going through my head. It got me thinking - what is the catchiest st tune ever? What gets stuck in your head for days? I'll start off with 2 nominations. Ranarama Zynaps Note that they don't have to be your favourite tunes just the on...

Re: Floppy disk cleaning kit - on Ebay - not mine

As the moldy floppy was in the drive before, I use the floppy cleaning disk to takes off any mold stuff from the floppy drive head. This is exactly the reason I bought one. My external drive refused to read disks after I carelessly inserted a mouldy/damaged/scratched disk - I really should always c...

I bought this a couple of months back to sort out my external disk drive. Seems not bad for a few quid.

Re: Why did you buy your first ST/STE/Falcon?

Given that a lot of folks around these parts (myself included) were mere kids back in the glorydays one obvious reason that a lot of folks got STs was that it was their parents choice!

Re: Strange files on a cracked game disk with snasm68k insid

SNASM (from memory) was a development tool used by companies so they could develop on a host machine and then send the compiled code to the destination machine. Sounds about right.
