Re: Atari 1040 Ste prices ?

It's not only the 1040 STE. It often makes me laugh and cry at the same time when I see those rotten, brown plain 520STs being offered for 100 € or even more. But that affects all popular vintage computer hardware. About 20 years ago, you could get such items for reasonable prices. E.g. I got a full...

Re: Software reset in C

Errr, this seems to be a Steem issue. The reset routine works perfectly with ARAnyM and on a real Mega STE, but fails to load the AUTO folder programs in Steem. I should have tested that before wasting your time. :?

But thank you for the hint with resvalid. ;)

I am using the following code to reset the Atari after a fatal error occured. Unfortunately, the AUTO folder programs don't get loaded on reboot. Why? static void* get_os_start(void); void do_reset() { void* os_start = (void*)Supexec(get_os_start); Supexec(os_start); } void* get_os_start() { OSHEADE...

Re: Help needed for form_do() replacement for passwords

I think I found the right way to do it in the EmuTOS sources :D and replaced the "if (key != 0) { ... }" after the call to form_keybd() by this: #define ESCAPE 0x011b #define BACKSPACE 0x0e08 #define DELETE 0x537f #define ARROW_LEFT 0x4b00 #define ARROW_RIGHT 0x4d00 if (key != 0) { short old_idx = i...

Re: Help needed for form_do() replacement for passwords

objc_edit() does redraw the object. And I cannot simply push "*" because the key could be a cursor key which would lead in just changing the cursor position or move to another field. Maybe I could use Keytbl() to check if the scan code leads to an ASCII code. objc_edit() redraws the field with the p...

Help needed for form_do() replacement for passwords

I am working on a form_do() replacement which can handle password fields and echo e.g. asterisks instead of the typed characters. I modified the form_do() source printed in the Atari Profibuch to do so. That works pretty fine, but it loses the ability to move the cursor within the field because the ...

Yes, it works better. Increasing MAX_DTAS_FILES to 2048 lead to incomplete copies.

Re: Issue with copying large directory trees from GEMDOS drive do ACSI partition

Shame on me. I failed building the patched version of Hatari correctly. I didn't have in mind that a simple "make all" doesn't work. Due to this, I was still running my dirty hack rather than your patch. Unfortunately, I didn't check the file date. :? Today I cleared the source tree and the cmake ca...

Re: Issue with copying large directory trees from GEMDOS drive do ACSI partition

No, TOS didn't give any indications. It just stopped the operation and the dialog box was closed. But that amount of folders, files and bytes is far beyond what I really need. So, your patch is definitely a step forward.
