Re: Vertical white stripes when using a ST to VGA cable

It's being a loooong time since I last posted here so I am happy to see the place thriving. I recently starting setting my retro corner in my flat including my beloved STE. It's a 520 STE with 4MB RAM (In glorious SIP modules) rev CA4003290. Unfortunately, I used to hook it on a 14" CRT TV that I do...

Too many polygons, closer to reality images. VR is not something that was discovered 'these days'. I love 2D, but living into something 3D is extremely interesting.

Re: ZX Spectrum, was it good or bad?

What I didn't like (not Spectrum's fault) was that developers found it easy to convert games directly to CPC from ZX using mode 1 so they messed up several nice games. Typical example, R-Type. See this video and you will understand http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_GDjT1tivo To be honest, it was simi...

Should we be afraid to use any name related to Atari?

The guy who has this:

http://www.asteroids.co.uk/

received this:

http://www.asteroids.co.uk/atari

and all because of the domain name... I am really pissed off with this.

I took out my Amiga 1200 out of the box today. Great machine. Plus, you can still find peripherals for it much easier than any other Amiga like USB interfaces and stuff.

Re: Metallica new album: Death Magnetic

Well, definitely an improvement but albums still has several things that categorize is as average. Some of the things I don't like is the mastering of the album. It sucks bad time. Put the volume up and all you listen is drums. Gone is the voice, gone are the guitars. Unforgiven is a disgrace. Why t...

Re: An open letter to the Atari scene

People can go nuts in forums. In matter of fact, there's nothing wrong with the persons. You may have someone who misbehaves in a forum and when you meet him, you may meet a great guy. So, think positive, stay and relax. Even the fights and arguments in forums are helping us at the end.

Re: Philosophical question, it might be - better games on ST?

I think Mean Streets was better on the ST. It's being ages since I saw it, but I even remember CVG giving it a higher score on the ST. I am not sure. I think ST had more samples and game was more solid whereas graphics were the same and 3D parts were faster on the ST. I also liked Robocop 2 on the S...

It definitely worth it. I bought a 2 year license for NOD32 but I cheated somehow. I ordered it through their US shop in $. Since the euro-dollar rate favors the first, it was a steal! :angel:

Use it first. My experience with Vista is a good one. Plus, for free A/V, go for Avira's AntiVir Personal. It is by far the lightest and most effective free A/V out there. You only need to apply a little tweaking in Vista to disable some popups. Oh, Norton sucks big time. However, Norton Corporate i...
