Re: Steem for Android OS?

Got a Nexus7 a while back and it runs a number of emulators really well. MAME4Droid/MAME4All is spot on. UAE4Droid works reasonably well - Stunt Car Racer, Microsoft Golf and Shufflepuck Cafe are indistinguishable from ST versions. Shufflepuck is reasonably playable as the touchscreen emulates the m...

Re: DBug 200

On the http://dbug.kicks-ass.net/ site, Menus Page, Click 191-200, then Click 'Menu 200'.

This gives page not found.

All the others work.

On the forum, there is mention of a CD image with all 200 menus and password in 2009 but no url.

Re: STe - too little too late?

68000 only at 8MHz as the first ST ?! Wasnt the Amiga running at 7.14MHz? What killed both original machines is technology moved on rapidly and neither ST or Amiga was easily or cheaply expandable. Also a lot of the user base did not have access to 'free' software which originally gave rise to thei...

Re: STE and ST games

If you are using HD floppies, put sticky tape over the 'HD' hole and format them as 720K disks on the ST.

If still no luck, try running the programs in Steem 3.2 with TOS 1.62UK on the PC

Re: Bent shutter on floppy disk - best solution?

I used to use a staple remover with the two of the remover prongs under the back 'aperture', straddling the lip, gripping and then quickly pulling up.
The remover had the effect of raising the lip over the plastic, reducing the risk of damaging a good shutter.

Re: Dragons Lair on 520STM ??

Try putting the program you are double clicking in to an AUTO folder as this does not load the desktop into memory.
Sometimes even tiny crack programs forced some games from 512Kb to 1Mb.
If you use a 50/60Hz switcher, put this in first, then the game program to ensure it switches first.

CJ is right - Fastcopy was the standard (fact not opinion) for menu disks as it ensured that tracks read correctly and allowed retries on misreads. Ten years ago I copied most of my disks onto PC without many problems. Most were formatted by Fastcopy and copied by STImage (which can also copy back t...

The Little Green Desktop versions of 409 (and 401) dont work as the boot sector loader was overwritten by the LGD boot sector.
As a result they drop in to the desktop.

This might be a daft question but where can one download some of the rarer menus like 4, 7, 13, 18, 19, 24, 38, 42 and 45?

Airball was one of the first games I got - lovely to look at but very difficult to play as it was difficult to stop.

Why not try the Construction Set to look at the rooms - may give you a clue on how to finish it
