You can use a blank floppy image. Hatari will generate one for you.

Re: Rise of Retrocomputing (NYT)

Unless you tell me otherwise I'll assume that the drive thingy is just a mock prototype taped on front of the monitor to make the computer look more like 'serious business'.

Rise of Retrocomputing (NYT)

There's a recent article in the New York Times on retro computing:

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/08/styl ... uting.html

Nothing spectacular but the ST is briefly mentioned and they have a picture of an odd-looking Mega-esque monitor/disk drive combination which I wasn't aware of.

Re: MegaSTE - No power led after cleaning

I'd just replace it with a new one. IIRC a 5mm 5V LED will do the trick.

They might be quite bright compared to the original ones so you might want to add a 4.7K or 10K resistor.

There's also a mount available if you happen to have a 3D printer: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2817996

Re: Need help to replace missing keys of an Atari STE

Welcome to the forum! There are some sources where you'd be able to get keyboards from I assume (e.g. exxos in UK if you ask nicely), but source and price point depend on where you're living. I'm not aware of any sources for individual keys, though. If you let us know which country they should ship ...

Re: Atari STe Retr0bright

Nice job! I use the same cream, but only about 1h of sun does the trick for me (sunny day with relatively high UV index). I learned the hard way to be very careful, though - a few minutes too long and you've ruined it. Some 303 Aerospace Protectant polishing after that and the plastic looks fantastic.

Space Ace maybe?

Edit:
According to http://www.stcarchiv.de/stm1990/06/space-ace it came on 4 disks and supported the STE color palette.

Edit 2:
Could maybe also be Dragon's Lair: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYN-jqoulfQ

Swapping SM 124 housings

Hi, I have two SM 124, one looks shiny but has a pretty bad picture, the other one is ugly beyond help but has a pretty decent picture.
Therefore I'd like to swap screen and housing.
Is the screen glued to the housing? Is it painful?

Thanks for your advice!
