Re: New document at Atari Museum

Yes and the spec for the AMY with it's 8 channel 64 osc additive synth but also needed a DAC OR two. How awesome would it have been if it had worked and this was in your ST since 1985. It was bloody ambitious, even something half as good would have been groundbreaking.

Re: Games that spectacularly fail to live up to billing....

I was quite disappointed on playing the demo of chaos engine after all STE enhanced hype, it just reminded me a bit of other similar games like crackdown. The in game graphics were awesome, sound was shitty, scrolling didn't seem like it used hardware scrolling and gameplay was meh. Cannon fodder wa...

Re: GOEX for ST in the making

Were you maybe planning to open source pasti so that the flashfloppy firmware could support the format Ijor? This along with support for MSA would be awesome ( sources for that are out there which it maybe an idea to ask Keir to support?).

Re: Atari STe SD card reader on the Extended Joystick Port

Great Idea,well done! I love the fact it's such a cheap solution and doesn't need the case to come off. I guess the downside is that you need to rely on the floppy to boot.

Re: WIP: ScummVM-Lite Atari

Awesome work! I need to check these out some time. As you have added all the alt hardware for playing sound, have you considered also adding support for sample playback cartridge / replay too? I have playback cart kicking about. The disk images with source are on atarimania. I did also wonder if the...

Re: GOEX for ST in the making

This is a really neat option compared to hacking up a regular Gotek case. I would have bought one immediately( the price as it is very reasonable) if I had not just bought and modified 3 gotek drives already and I also bought one of Zaxxon's Microgotek not long before setting this. I thank everyone ...

Such a shame about the whole AMY fiasco. It would have been awesome to have to have that chip working in time. This doc partially explains why the early ROM was just a bootstrap with the rest on disk. £££

Re: Save a data table to disk

What happens if you stick a semi-colon after the print statement? (Does GFA have a default linefeed, other basics need println for a newline) I am not really a GFA user but a thought is that tab is a reserved command? maybe rename your array? another thought is that you may need to clean your data o...

I have built one up and got it imaging some disks. I will take a look and see if the ones I made run ok on emulators and report back. The parts can be bought for like 4 quid if you already have drive and USB micro cable and some basic soldering skills, if not it's even a good thing to learn on as it...
