Re: Mixed Resolution Games

Magnetic Scrolls adventure games were probably the most famous, including the ability to smoothly move the colour graphics to the screen. The adventure games of Level 9 computing also seemed to have mixed resolution. Other graphic/text adventure games like Fahrenheit or Deja-Vu just stuck with one r...

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

The compatibility lists below cater mainly for users who don't have Atari HW and therefore won't have (legal) version of commercial Atari software and most likely lack motivation to investigate applications very deeply (Linux offers better alternatives nowadays for most of that). I.e. the lists ski...

Re: MagicMac

No, it's not possible. You'd need the free successor AtariX (https://gitlab.com/AndreasK/AtariX). AtariX is however a 32 bit application, I use it with macOS Mojave which is the last macOS version to support 32 bit apps.

Re: What Happened To the Atari Hardware

In Germany, Atari dealers would receive stock from other companies and Atari and would sell them until the end of the 90's. This also included software that was no longer in development like K-Spread 4. Selling Falcons and TT was not hard for obvious reasons. The other stuff (Portfolio, 8-bit comput...

Re: TTOS BLUE (TOS version 3.00)

Kind of curious now, since if I recall correctly, the TT was released a few years before the Mega STe, and I think the Mega STe was the first system released with TOS 2.x? So did they actually release TOS 3.x before they released TOS 2.x? This version kind of shows that they did. There was only a g...
