Re: Brand New DemoBaseST

Great ! Thank you ! I just downloaded it and noticed there are a lot more entries than in the previous version i had :-) But the interface is slower, and the mouse pointer is choppy. Can i do something to fix that ? (did not happen on the older version). Thanks ! This version is more graphics-heavy...

Re: Brand New DemoBaseST

Great news!!! It should warn you when you open DBST if the path is too long. Does your xxxxx username have special characters, is extra long, or anything unusual?

Ok can you move your whole DBST folder elsewhere on your drive and try again.

Re: Brand New DemoBaseST

In the temp folder, is there a file called DBSTsteem.ini?
If so, open it and search for: ROM_File
It should look like this:
ROM_File=[your DBST location]\Files\TOS\[a letter]
Is it there?
Also, try running DBST as administrator, in case your PC isn't letting you create files, or something stupid.

Re: Brand New DemoBaseST

It shouldn't be doing that - when this happens can you see a ~Temp folder in your DBST folder? It should have a copy of Steem and a load of files in there. Try and run a screen first though before looking.

Re: Brand New DemoBaseST

Run the recovery.exe file which sits next to DemobaseST.exe, to save you redownloading it all again.
Is this when you double-click on a demo in the main list?

No, all the files are included. Did it extract properly to your drive? There should be a TOS folder under Files I think with A-F inside.

Brand New DemoBaseST

Hey everyone. I've not been active on here for quite a long time. I hope everyone is well. I thought I'd post up and say for those who were interested in DemoBaseST and who aren't aware, this project was restarted from scratch 2 or 3 years ago, and has been making great progress. It completely repla...

Re: STeem 3.9.1 load disk image AND mem snapshot?

Hi Mr. Seagal, Apologies as it's been months since I last posted. I've been experimenting with the 3.9.4 beta that is available from your website at the moment and it looks like it's allowing the successful passing of disc image and memory snapshot at the same time, which hopefully is great news.

Re: STeem 3.9.1 load disk image AND mem snapshot?

I can get the old sts files to work in 3.9.2b but STeem won't autoplay, even when I copy the ini file from 3.9.1 to 3.9.2. When I call STeem from CLI I still have to manually Load the snapshot from the menu, then click Play. A few of the demos that work in 3.9.1 crash out in 3.9.2 so perhaps the lim...

Re: STeem 3.9.1 load disk image AND mem snapshot?

Thanks for your work on this, sadly I'm unable to test it with DemobaseST because the memory screenshots were taken with STeem 3.2 - 3.4 (ish) and I saw the below in the new beta manual: - CPU: 64bit cycle timers (Win64). This makes older memory snapshots incompatible. I think this means that 3.9.1 ...

STeem 3.9.1 load disk image AND mem snapshot?

Hi Mr. Seagal. STeem 3.9.1 - is there a way to pass both a disk image and a memory snapshot via CLI at the same time? e.g.: STeem.exe c:\disk.msa c:\memsnapshot.sts so that STeem starts with disk in drive and runs mem snapshot? I'm sure older versions used to work like this but when I try it now I j...

DemoBaseST Patch 5 released

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I was last on here - I hope everyone's ok and is going to have a great Christmas. I had a handful (28 to be exact) of demo screens ready to be added to the database so I thought I may as well release them now. You'll find the link in my signature. Cheers all! Dave.
