Re: Pera Putnik (AtariZol / Petari etc.)'s HDD games on STEEm SSE

Running with TOS 1.00 may not be a good idea? Pera claims they work with all versions of TOS. I know v1.00 is buggy but quite a few old games only run on the original '85/6 ST setup. Also be sure to use UK TOS and not US (50hz refresh rate consideration, as ST games are mainly EU). I had a feeling ...

Pera Putnik (AtariZol / Petari etc.)'s HDD games on STEEm SSE

I wonder if anyone can share with me any experiences of their successes or otherwise that they've had attempting to get these to run on SSE. I have a project in mind but so far I've only had 1 out of 3 games run without crashing to GEM desktop. To be fair Pera does mention on the site that his newer...

I've just noticed the PP disks are up on Stonish now. But not the Krappy Compact? Unless I missed it. Didn't know about that unnumbered (PP_A) disk before too.

I have more than 1400 floppy disk with game menus. What should I do with them? Where have you been, sir!

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

Hmm, which originals are you referring to? I've checked the two sites I know of for PASTI images and neither have any of the flight sims on the affected disks. I guess Pera's not a fan of them either?

Great to hear from you, Brume; thank you. Some interesting stuff there. Are you saying the "roasters" (rosters) ;) on original commercial release disks are detected by the tool as correct?! That must surely mean that all PP disks went out untouched then, as far as those high-scores / saved games go,...

Couple of questions: Were the posts I made back in May of any use? I never had any responses back then so I wasn't sure if I was doing everything correctly. Of course everyone had much more pressing issues to deal with during the time of the beginnings of lockdowns and furloughs and such but I would...

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...

PP 4 - If Sledge had a slightly different version of the file and Alien acknowledged this then that disk is OK, surely?

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...
