Re: donation of Atari floppies

You should make a special effort to preserve all (non-cracked, non-copy-protected, non-copy-unprotected) floppies to .ST images because the 'originals' are being taken care by everybody else. The real history is contained even in the trivial work people have done, not in pirated games.

Re: a few questions about .ST files

A .ST file is a standard Floppy Disk Image consisting of the data from sequentially numbered sectors. The data can be written back to a similarly formatted floppy disk (with the same, or different interleave factor). The image starts with the first sector of the first track of the first side, and en...

Rare Documents

A few months ago I found the only copy of the ST_SF354_ServiceManual_v2.pdf on the Internet.
Now I just browsed that site and found more interesting stuff.

It looks like one should disable long file names on Windows(tm) FLASH(tm) drive FAT(tm) file system.

Judging from the problems MiST has with EmuTOS; MiST has a few shortcomings with emulation, because EmuTOS works with real hardware.

Re: Hatari 1.8.0 has been released

Try:
-DCMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS:STRING="-Wl,--no-add-needed -Wl,--strip-all"
Using -Wl, assumes that cmake passes the linker flags to the compiler. :roll:
The only thing that you can trust to compile and link your program correctly
is a shell script.

Omit the following, and it won't be used:

IMHO cmake is experimental software.

Re: Atari ST Use of Screen Restate??

NTSC and PAL would have been considered before the computer was designed. The border is a practical compromise with video memory (32k per screen *) and CRT timing.

Re: Memory access time

The Apple Macintosh was an expensive, no frills machine. The ST was a relatively inexpensive, no frills machine. The Amiga was supposed to be a fantastic whiz-bang audio/video/toaster... but the ST had MIDI. Take your pick. I chose Atari because it had the Alcyon C compiler and the MC68000.

I used to have a PAiA 8700 analog synthesizer. The triangle wave seemed to be the most musical. My choice of waveform for DSP experimentation would be to sweep from sawtooth to triangle with an option for clipping. Ring-modulating triangle waves give good drum sounds too.

This brings me memories of my own GUI sound editor/creator for ST done with GFA basic + assembly (in early nineties I think).
