Re: Crown of creation test:

Yeah, same thing happened to me back then when I played it. It ended at mission 18-20 or something. The main problem was I think that the game was too easy. Silly levels of easy. But nothing stopped me from reaching the end.. I think at least.

Re: WIFI for all ataris over serial!

OK, I've had partial success in getting sting to use serial 2 by changing the route.tab to Ser.2/LAN. However when I try to open the connection I see the blue led of the esp lighting up but eventually the system ends with connection time out. I think I am missing something since I am not that experi...

Re: First steps (I have wanted an ST for 30 years and now I have one)?

Hi, and welcome. I'll get straight to the point. The Mega STE has no composite video (maybe some do, not 100%) so you need a VGA monitor and an adapter, which is easy to make. High resolution should work on any VGA monitor but low/med needs a monitor that syncs to 15khz. Or get a scandoubler. That'...

The hard disk driver could impact compatibility, especially if you try to write to reserved addresses.

Re: WIFI for all ataris over serial!

OK, I was very very stupid... I connected RX to TX on the max232 but I should have connected it RX-RX.

It works now. Thank you for your help czietz and thanks for your work on the firmware and the software package.

Re: WIFI for all ataris over serial!

Ok, I connected the esp01 using the usb2ttl adapter I used to program it and I opened it in arduino ide's serial monitor. I don't read anything. I don't see the blue led lighting up at all.

Re: One MegaSTE setup

Highwire works just fine with TOS. It's just faster with multitasking. However nowadays you are better off with CAB since highwire doesn't support SSL which most sites need.

I see already, you need about another year to understand my idea. Same as with Vampire (soon this will be alive on ST board). Ps: If you don't need that unix stuff, just don't open the bash... Freemint is free software so there is nothing stoping you from creating your own distro. P.S. vanillamint ...

Re: SMSPlus for the Atari falcon

Unless you rework each game like Anima did with the x68k and the Neo Geo games there is no way you can emulate it on a standard Falcon. Megadrive should be unlikely on a CT60 without supervidel either way. Genecyst the oldest emulator needed a pentium with 8MB of RAM to work so it is within the CT60...

Saw the video. Looks fun. I wish my falcon was still alive. I'll give it a try on hatari. Thanks for the release! I am sure with a little a bit of fiddling you can get it to as good a speed as you want. It's just that the falcon is a bit strange in its graphics so you kind of need to work with it :)...

Re: Welcome to Neon Shooter!

Not clear for me: what is the targeted platform? I'd guess, android/ios. Definitely not ST though it could be doable on an accelerated falcon and maybe Jaguar with fewer particle effects. Nothing to do with this forum though, just a developer trying to publicize their game. Nothing wrong with that,...

Re: why use ASM anymore

I have programmed many languages and on PC it's mostly C or C++, C# and so on... But on older computers like the Atari I prefer the 68000 assembler. It's not much different than program in C. C: A = A + 1 ASM ADD #1,D0 C: A = B[10] ASM MOVE 10(a0),d0 It's more or less the same syntax so it's not di...

Re: The FPGA and non-Atari cores deserve the cover of this forum?

I agree. I even posted something silly on an emutos question because i didnt notice it was for fpga. I like reading about fpga atari but not so much about other cores.
