Re: Book project "The Crackers" - Let's make this happen

Just a crazy thought I had to throw out, not sure if this angle is something Marco thought about....

What about maybe discussing all the times the crackers fixed games, incompatible TOS, bugs, made them work on STe, Falcon, etc.

Re: Floppy Disk Stream Image Repository

RE - Chopper X, I want to say original? I got it when it was new I believe, and I am US based. Remember it's MIDI well, since so few games supported it. I have attached a picture of the disk. Does that help at all? I have 'basically' 4 sources for my originals. Disks for the time the ST was alive th...

I think many would be interested in the stats, to be honest, especially after all the effort you went to to collect the data.

The aspect ratio of your videos seems wrong by the way, they are stretched vertically Update: ouch, I just realized they are in 60 Hz, the tunes are played too fast as well. Hello, I don't think things are stretched, at least I hope not, I try to make sure the aspect ratio is correct. Lotek mention...

Hello Stefan, No, it is not limited to 60hz, it does 50hz just as well. The majority of the Youtube posts should be in 50 fps. The recording software takes the incoming frame rate and saves that way to an MP4, and if the frequency changes, like 60 to 50hz, a new file is created on the spot. I can no...

I've been going thru similar, pulling out scroll texts from menus, and popping the recordings of the scrollers on youtube (~80% of the time off a real ST), and the scroll text over on a companion blog. Been hitting CD groups from STonish, and a mix of cracktros and demos and a couple mega demos. Bas...
