Re: New Joysticks / Joypads for Atari ST ?

Hi, Anybody got a link on where to find new joysticks or joypads for the Atari ST ? I have found for instance https://www.amiga-shop.net/Amiga-Hardware/Amiga-Eingabegeraete/Competition-PRO-Retro-Joystick::694.html but I am rather interested by joypads, as the games I play at the moment (for ex.

It uses 3 keys, a,b,c. So i guess a mega drive pad should be enough. But it couldnt just run on the mouse port with a two button joystick.

If you read the ejp faq there is actually a way but it is probably not supported by either cosmosex or r0x zero.

Re: Atari Falcon 030 / 060 (with CT60e 512MB, CF, ScreenBlaster) - CT60, CT63, CT60e

I have always been wondering - where those people (buyers) go then? We've seen so many ridiculously overpriced Falcons sold over the past few years but not so many additions to our user (god forbid coder) base. Do they really just put them on the shelf? Yeah. That is exactly what they do. A shelf, ...

Re: What can I actually do with this thing?

I am now able to compare the Falcon to the Mega STE for general computing... and there is no comparison on how much snappier and usable the falcon is (which makes sense). I've had friends with 286's and 386's at the time and I didn't miss anything apart from all the cool adventures..

Check the mint.cnf file. There should be a reference to a:\mint there. This is translated to unix dir structure by mint. Anyway, i d start with vanillamint and build from that.

Ebay advertising accounts

Hi,
I've noticed that some users use this forum only to advertise their ebay auctions. It kind of annoys me for the forum to be used this way. I am not against posting ebay links, but I prefer it if it comes from members of the community and not traders. Do others feel the same way?

That price is insane. Really, they are not that rare and they are not as usable as a later model. I agree with mzry though.

Re: Mega STe PSU replacement with Flex ATX

So quick question, will the mste work without the -5V? Because I just want to check whether my MSTE's problems are due to the psu and I don't want to spend 40+ euros for that.

Just to let you know I've just run this tool and I love it. It's very fast on my mste. BTW, how do you measure speed? It doesn't show it anywhere.

going by the network tab on firefox, I get:48kb/s on 8-Mhz and 73Kb/s on 16MHz + cache.
