Re: Beginning of very long journey

I truly don't understand the use of a different DSP. This will immediately make it NOT compatible with Falcon and there will be hardly any software for it. Well if it is in the same family it should be code be compatible (according to NXP), but i am pretty sure that incompatibilities will arise. Ho...

Re: shadow of the beast ST (Mark mc cubbin here)

Let's just wait for the village idiot's response now! Let me make a guess. The st can't do a better sotb. Those who coded for the Amiga were bad programmers that didn't care for the machine. The st coders were brilliant but just couldn't do anything better because the st is crap. I also read the Fa...

Re: Assembler video tutorials on Vretrocomputing

Cool video (I'll follow the series closely)

But.. I'd like to see it progress into more than just explaining branching and looping, but to how to actually create a useful program.

Re: Good bye

The admins of Demozoo and Pouet are being rediculous in this matter. They have taken and published work that the author has put in the public domain. This does IMO grant websites, publications the right to comment, link and discuss the titles. Hosting the files is not reasonable when the author mai...

Re: New Joystick Introduction!

I will give my opinion: I would like two new joysticks, one that corresponds to the retro aesthetic (Atari in this case) and another that is truly ergonomic (PlayStation type) and that includes an auto-fire button; I would buy both if its price is reasonable, for other prices there are already alte...

The moment something is released it becomes public information. So description, screenshots and other information should be allowed to be posted and categorised by others. An argument can be made about distribution though. If the author doesn't want the software distributed that should be their righ...

Yes probably. Just do it using extension cords. There is no reason to damage the stick.

Re: Phoenix Database

I have some experience with databases, i was just a bit confused by the interface.
Am I right to assume that you can output code to interface the dB you create with C code?

Most of the new releases are ST games ports (in the most basic of terms using a kind of emulation of the ST's video format).

Re: Did the Atari Jaguar Leave a Lasting Legacy!?

I don't know about legacy, but it did leave us a "nice" community... Also, 3d graphics on the jaguar are an afterthought. It's nice to see its new role as an ST based console. It is interesting to watch the evolution of what could an ST based console be like.
