Re: Trying to find the name of an adventure game

Sadly I don’t have an old PC. The only 3.5” floppy drive I have is an external one so therefore no use.
To think of all the work laptops that just got chucked out over the years... :roll:

Noob hardware questions

Apologies for posting questions doubtless asked a million times before but the problem is one of too much information! I have a 520STFM and need to:- Upgrade the RAM - is there a recommended amount to upgrade to or upgrade to use? Should I just go to 1mb or 4? Install an SD card reader or similat (g...

Re: Trying to find the name of an adventure game

Well, glad I rekindled some memories! Once I have my ST working I would like to give this a go. And Dungeon Master of course. What is the best way to get this on my physical computer (aside the very slim chance of being able to buy a working copy)? I tend to avoid emulators. I have a limited budget ...

Re: Trying to find the name of an adventure game

Eyebright is mentioned here: http://www.mocagh.org/softguide/advgamersmanual.pdf Three times under "The Price of Magik". I think we have a winner! Woodshed, eyebright and reading a bit further it reminded me of the pile of ash being used in a spell! Thanks - that was going to bug me for a...

Re: Trying to find the name of an adventure game

Thanks for even thinking about it with such a vague description!
I’m pretty sure it wasn’t point and click and had pre-rendered location graphics, not drawn on the go.
I suspect this one is going to haunt me for some time.

Trying to find the name of an adventure game

Back when Atari STs were fairly new I remember reading a review for a graphical adventure in a magazine. I didn’t have an ST at the time (in fact only just got one) but for whatever reason the review stuck with me (kind of) and now that I have one (and it will be working soon too, I hope) I was wond...

Re: The Obligatory 'Introduce Yourself Thread'...

So, noob question - which is the best RAM upgrade for the 520STFM? I see that Frontier Elite needs 1MB of RAM and that is a good enough reason to splash out on one. This one looks good but I really have no idea! 8O https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-Atari-520-1040-ST-STF-STFM-Mega-ST-computer-4MB-Marpet-m...

Re: The Obligatory 'Introduce Yourself Thread'...

Hello Phil / Lardo Welcome to Atari-Forum :-D Yes, the PSU has to come out before you continue the battle with the metal screening shield. Remove the metal cover that is on top of it. It then comes out as a module (the metal bit as well as the PCB all comes out as one unit) so as long as you don't ...

Re: The Obligatory 'Introduce Yourself Thread'...

Hello all! As a complete aside Lardo Boffin is not my real name (hard to believe I know) - somebody at work put my name into an online Hobbit name generator and I quite liked it! I just got my first Atari - a friend donated his old 520 STFM that he found in his parents attic recently. Sadly it doesn...
