Re: Atari ST Protection Technioques

Have you tried using Pasti to make an image of the disk as it can handle most protected tracks?

Re: Beerfest

OK, will let you off on the 2nd part. However, to upload images, you *do not* need to rename them to .ZIP file extension. Just leave them with their .JPG file extension and they will appear in the post. You can use the Place Inline option to line up the images wherever you want in your post. If you ...

Re: Beerfest

What you have uploaded aren't .ZIP files (as in they are compressed archives containing one, or multiple files) but two JPG pictures that you've changed the extension to .ZIP.

Why are you uploading this kind of junk to a forum which is 99% specifically about the Atari ST/Falcon and their clones?

A single post inside a thread, click the X in the top-right of each post that you want to remove.

Deleting a whole thread needs to be done by asking one of the moderators/admin.

It's nowhere near as bad as the cobbled together BASIC editor that Amstrad dumped into the +2a/+2b/+3 machines. That 'EDIT' button just gets in the way of anyone who's ever used a proper keyboard beforehand.

Steven Seagal has moved away from the forum and is "living" on SourceForge now: https://sourceforge.net/p/steemsse/blog/ Whether or not he returns to AF to answer support queries is another thing. I'd post your queries over on the SourceForge page and see if that generates a reply.

Try Beepola as it has many drivers for various Speccy music routines from yesteryear built-in - including Ping Pong/Cobra drivers.

I would assume so (I don't own a MiST) as most standard ST disk images will feature 80 tracks / 10 sectors = 800K .ST file.

.ST files are copies of the whole disk, whereas you need to access the files within it.

It's all part of the learning curve :)
