Re: Underwater music in ST games

Can;t remember, did Aquanaut do music underwater
or was it just sound effects? Hmm, come to think of it
I think it was just sound FX...

PS - Were there 2 different versions of this game?

Re: CPU/Processor Upgrade for the Atart ST

Well, the STacy won't run any STe stuff....

But I'll try Enchanted Land (assuming I can find a patched version here)
and see how badly it goes later on tonight.

Thanks.

Re: CPU/Processor Upgrade for the Atart ST

Yes, with patched games there is little incompatibility. But forget anything with syncscrolling or border removal unless you have a real 8MHz 68000 available. I think you're right. Just for the fun of it though (and because I'm a glutton for punishment :) ), throw out a handful of titles and let me...

Re: CPU/Processor Upgrade for the Atart ST

There are other accelerators with faster CPU's (020 and 030), I have no real experience with them. However, it's clear that compatibility suffers compared to a 68000 accelerator, unless there's a possibility to fall back to the original CPU. No problem if you don't play games though. If you're a &q...

The thing is a tank, built to last. I hope you were able to acquire some of the

Ha, I thought for sure the last items I ordered from him were going to cost a small fortune to ship. It was the Wizztronics Falcon rack mount kit, and some smaller things.

Both are good but I'm going with G2.

All those "modes" in multi-player win it for me.

Re: TOS 3.1 desktop for the ST

AFAIK, TOS v3.06 on my Pak equipped STacy is a 32 bit OS so I'm assuming
this version would be as well.

I usually take the cover off and clean it once a year. Oddly

Re: MEGA ST 2 - what could this strange add on be?

The fan appears much more noisy to me than on another Mega ST I tried (Mega ST 1 in that case). So it might be just to turn the fan on and off? Ues, it does look like some sort of "Noise Killer". My advice is to remove it and don't bother with the fan. Under normal circumstances the PSU d...

Re: PAK68/3 and FRAK/2 schematic

Good grounding is a must. Over and over again it's repeated that
you must ground sufficiently. I think I have -3- grounds coming off
the Pak board and going somewhere on my STacy's motherboard.

HTHs.

it's because of rounded values. For example 24 out of 64 is 37.5%, not 38%
