Re: Very first computer

I had one of these for Xmas 1981. http://www.izotop.com/images/zx81.gif My first magazines were 'Your Computer' and 'Computer and Video Games'. I didn't even have a tape recorder at the start, so had to type everything in for the early days. Then when the machine was switched off, it was lost for go...

Re: We redesign the STE

Forget demos, it is considered as utmost rubbish by 90% of Acorn users : ask them, they will answer 'loss of time, childish, non productive.' There are a few games, including libraries to create yours (but nobody cares about that, frankly). That distainful attitude goes right back to the early days...

Re: ZEsarUX emulator

That looks like a lot of emulators in one place!

From an Atari point of view, I wonder what the minimum requirements are to run this on TOS hardware. I'm guessing something like a Firebee, or possibly a CT60 Falcon if we're pushing our luck :-)

Re: Bad Apple by Fenarinarsa (Atari STe demo) !!!!!

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work on my 4MB STE with UltraSATAN and HDDriver 10.10. It just stops on the intro screen with only a little of the "progress bar" showing. I think there is a option on the HD Driver util/settings prog that needs to be selected, something to do with making ...

All of the demos were great. Demo five really points to stuff going out of the box and things made by pure witchcraft.

Re: For Sale [RESERVED]: A very special Falcon

Hey, can I just say that if the ataribox.com tease ended up being a system like this, I'd be 100% IN!

Unfortunately, that's very unlikely. I think PC hardware and emulation was mentioned.

If someone ever does a decent (as in complete) Falcon 030 in an FPGA, I'd be so up for that.

Re: Atari Interactive is working on a new console

I'm keeping excitement levels firmly in check until we know more. I'm guessing a retro-styled box powered by emulation and bundled with some classic games.

The interesting part is to find out if it is yet another VCS bundle, or will it be something more than that?

Re: OIDS hard disk versions for test

I was thinking little about improving scroll. Probably can do smooth scroll even without blitter. That may cost little + RAM, but we can remove editor from play version. So, I went into disassembling it. And lucky ! That was my way fastest Atari ST game disassembly so far. About 1.5 hours only. Of ...

Or do as dlfrsilver suggests, and split the graphics data into the individual levels to load in only what you need at that point.

Well there's the Outline party coming up at the end of May if anyone wants to thrash something together quickly.

Alternatively, for those people with a bit more time on hand, the prospect of a new Sillyventure party is being floated for December :-)

Oh, and, awesome work Doug!
