I can't see any benefit of converting to STX from ST/MSA - what's your idea?
The idea would be to enable the repatriation of Atari software. There are a lot of games available in the PASTI archive format and it seems a shame that it isn't easy to use them on an ST.
I also means that the 'archives' that are available could be amalgamated rather than needing a PASTI archive a ST / MSA archive and a raw file format archive, the last one is sadly missing a great deal, especially without Climatics as I think a lot of the files were up there in ZIP and not compressed.
What is so special about PASTI that it requires hardware?
