Re: What are the current ST equivalent hardware replacements available?

I only know of the MiST, with Midi Ports and a Steroids Mode with monochrome 1280x1024, 14MB of RAM, it is a nice ST replacement I think :) https://lotharek.pl/productdetail.php?id=45 I am considering myself buying one. Fantastic, thank you! Looks like I'll have to get it first thing next year. Can...

Re: Good bye

Doesn't anyone remember what it was like in '87?

We used to steal *everything*. Any game or piece of software that was possible to crack was cracked within hours and distributed by hand within days. Nobody gave a damn about anybody's copyright and everyone shared everything for free.

Sharp X1 community?

I have a friend from Japan with a Sharp X1 microcomputer, and recently got it out of mothballs to test it. It's working, but the monitor is rolling. Does anyone know of a Sharp group that he can contact for advice on the issue?

Re: YM Stand Alone Sound Modules? I want one!

The MiST is great (I use it for MIDI sequencing) but be aware that there are only two MIDI ports. The timing is at least as tight with the MiST as an ST, even in STeroids mode. It's great fun and not so expensive. Great programs to play with are: Cubase Lite, AEX, and Music Mouse (a toy really). The...

I'm not buying a new mouse. This should work with a standard mouse, because they're... well... standard.

FYI Someone else has recently opened an issue on the github repo:

In the full Sting installation, there are the header files and libraries you'll need to link to.
