Re: Atari ST mascot characters?

Nintendo has Mario (and friends), Zelda, Samus, M$ has Master Chief (from Halo), Sony PS has Astro Bot, Sega has Sonic What does/did the Atari ST have? Atari (at least the Arcades) had a lot of exclusive characters (PacMan, Space Invaders) but they don't particularly remind ME of the Atari ST. Spac...

Re: harleking 3 - Info

June 2019 was also when I received his pm. I never asked again. While it would be nice to have Harlekin 95, most of the older versions are archived. There are so many programs that simply vanished.

Re: Atari ST hardware based coin-ops

Although not strictly speaking a coin-op there was a Business Card Printing Machine found in railway stations which contained an Atari ST and some good quality printer. I saw it open for repair one day at Paisley Gilmour Street Station in Scotland. That must have been about 1992. I can't find any f...

Great initiative. And I love the old-school design of the site (which makes it somewhat modern, ironically). Thanks! Edit: by the way, I had no idea you had released so many programs.

Sure, finish Willie's Adventure and then I'll make the mag available in English :wink:

Unfortunately due to lack of time, authors and feedback, an English version is unlikely.

Re: GFA Basic Editor v3.70 released

You need a multitasking environment for development, but the compiled program can target single TOS (like Randomazer).

3.7 is an understatement - version 4 or 5 may be more appropriate. And unlike GFA-Basic 4.0, GBE isn't half-finished vaporware.
