Re: RIP Curt Vendel

RIP. He was clearly a great guy and did a lot for the Atari preservation effort.

No no, but thank you for offering anyway. Perhaps link where you got it for others who do though? This thread can be wrapped up nicely then.

Re: Super Hang-On Enhancements

Heh, the Miggy sounds... a bit poo TBH! Eh, it's OK but underwhelming; disappointing; some voices sound slightly flat. The compression on the ST makes it sound somehow beefier, which is what it needs. Same goes for the in-game tunes. Now I've got to find the extracted files for the ST intro somewhere.

Re: Super Hang-On Enhancements

Sorry, I'm not following exactly what you said. Do you mean there are samples playing through software as a MOD file or similar, rather than a single file in a wave-form? That's amazing if that's the case; I just assumed it was some trickery with the YM chip to play a recording. Of course it's an in...

2/2 Patched disks

PP 6 - Complains of having not been patched to include a trainer and about DESKTOP.INF (irrelevant?). When patched still shows this discrepancy. I have attached both images and they are different (intro blurb has changed). PP_13_4A_00003.png PP_006_00001.png PP 27 - One of the disks fixed for STEs ...

1/2 Disks that can be considered OK?

PP 4 - If Sledge had a slightly different version of the file and Alien acknowledged this then that disk is OK, surely? PP_13_4A_00001.png PP 22 - The pilot roster is the equivalent of a save file so again I very much doubt an original will be found. These disk images date from 1998. PP_13_4A_00004...

Re: Stonish.net - Atari ST Menu disks (Euroswap, FOFT, SFX...)

The Little Green Desktop CD's PP #3 only has a problem with one of the high score files. As the doc for the checker says- "...it's almost certainly really OK, just different from my copy!" [the Alien's originals]. And I VERY much doubt we'll find one of those! I'm working through the rest of the dis...

Re: Stonish.net - Atari ST Menu disks (Euroswap, FOFT, SFX...)

This doesn't have anything to do with the switch to the newly released STE that happened half way through the Pirates's run of disks does it? They re-released the early CDs to make them compatible so wouldn't the old ones fail on said newer hardware? I expect you're already aware of all this and I'm...

I have an itching to dump more disks again now I have a (somewhat) reliable two floppy XP box (somewhat) available. I think I'm done with my collection as it stands but what with Corona, I may do some eBaying for disks. No promises though, sorry. can you put here the menu disk with cloud kingdoms ? ...

Me again, some time has passed... Just a quickie to say that PaSTi on both hardware was unsuccessful unfortunately. No improvements on what I'd already managed to achieve. Cloud Kingdoms fails to load on anything sadly, but at least the menu is intact. Oh, and turns out that IK+ 'glitch' is well kno...

Re: [Project] Scroll Texts

I use MSA Converter to get at each disk's contents which I can "Read" which saves each file to a temporary directory which I can access with STEEm SSE. I've then often got to decompact the menu PRG and I've found most success with Synergy Giga 2.1 although I've tried a few including Mega and Naughty...

Updated link- http://flashtro.com/alien-world-amiga-atari-st/. Sadly the attachment seems to have disappeared since the site had an 'upgrade' (which isn't much of an improvement if you ask me when compared it to how it used to look). Maybe you still have it, musashi? :contract:

Does the Satan work as a drive itself? I thought it just held disk images but I don't know much about it TBH.
My terrible translation was attempting to make up the German for "Fortnight kid", as in the uber-popular (modern) video game. Again, my apologies for doing that to your language! ;)
