Re: Atari in films

Just spotted this in the first segment of the new HBO Max documentary "Heaven's Gate: The Cult of Cults"

vlcsnap-2020-12-04-20h26m26s480.jpg

The daughter of two former cult members is showing off one of her dad's inventions, an ergonomic desk, and there's an Atari ST monitor and mouse there.

Re: Fault finding on an Atari STe

I'm going to try reseating the components firstly but I've got the replacement PSU bookmarked in case that's required (I suspect it may well be!) But hopefully I can save some money and not buy it unncessarily. If you have a multimeter and you're comfortable using it on live equipment, you can chec...

Re: Fault finding on an Atari STe

Thank derkom, much appreciated. I've had a check and there is no lo/hi switch. :( I'm guessing that might rule out this cable type? Well, let's be sure. I've just looked on my STE here, and there's no Lo/Hi switch either, which I never noticed. :D Maybe the Lo/Hi switch is only on NTSC machines? So...

Re: Fault finding on an Atari STe

This may be a stupid question, but how do I find out if my STe has an RF converter and is outputting composite video? I would imagine your eBay cable is fine. These things aren't complicated. Have a look at the back of your STE... back_panel.gif If you have a Lo/Hi switch and an RCA style output in...

Re: OSSC testing. Great but strange colors

Not entirely sure which monitor you mean here, since there doesn't seem to be anything called a Dell 24U. Do you perhaps mean something like a Dell U2412? If you're using a monitor with a DVI input, not HDMI, make sure you've set "TX mode" to "DVI" in the OSSC's output options menu.

Re: Fault finding on an Atari STe

Does your STE have an RF modulator? If I'm not mistaken,the 13-pin DIN to composite type cable will only work on an STE with an RF modulator. STEs without RF output have only composite sync on that pin, and no picture, which could explain why your devices are detecting sync. (However, I think the on...

Re: New game: The Curse of Rabenstein

I've finished the game in a couple of sittings. It's nice to have a new game for the ST, but it's very, very short. If all the right moves were made in a row, it would take only about 10 minutes to play through, although obviously on first play (and there really is no replayability here) it takes qu...

Re: Automatically start ssh daemon under Mint

I've got mine starting by adding it to /etc/rc.d/rc.local, but that will work only if you have an init-based MiNT system I believe. sshd is saying that because apparently the way mint.cnf is starting it, it's not executing the binary as a full path to the binary, despite looking that way in mint.cnf...

Re: COVID-19 Watcher 1.0.0

Gluestik for MiNT should be included in the distribution, look for it at C:/mint/1-19-9ef/sys-root/opt/GEM/gluestik, but it is disabled by default and needs to be enabled in mint.cnf. I am not a MiNT expert, though. I can confirm it works fine with Gluesitk/MiNT. I find it cynical to shout here hoo...
