Re: How good was the Falcon?

Short(ish) opinion, The Falcon 030 can be considered as a colourful and fast STE with great sound, if that is what you were after. Certainly it would appeal to hardcore Atari fans like myself.

Re: Atari 8 bit emulator for the ST

The only 'full' Atari XL emulator for the ST family was Petr Stehliks one, which needs CT60 class hardware to run at or better than full speed. He stated it got to 40 percent with an Afterburner card.

This was portable code running on a number of platforms so assume not optimised.

Re: Ultima 6 enhanced?

Legends of Valour springs to mind.

The game with enhanced PeeCee level graphics that was supposed to be one of the Falcon launch titles, but got lost, allegedly due to a dispute between management types at Atari and US Gold/SSI.

Re: Were STEs produced in smaller numbers compared to STF/STFMs?

I had an STe back at the time and I never felt like I was getting anything better than the regular STfm. Well, the day that I expanded the memory to 1Mb I did enjoy a cheaper price because of the DIMM support on the board. To this day, I am still not sure I have ever played a game that used the bli...

Re: RIP Bod/Stax

(anyone know how old he was?)

Middle aged, a rough contemporary for my age group.

He had some major issues, so I guess these contributed to a cause of death?

Still, very sudden and sad. Rest in Peace.

Interesting. Is this a graphics only mock up, or was it an entire table, game play and all? Would be great if something turns up either way.
