Re: The history about C-Lab and the demise of the old Atari

I never saw one here in Sweden, as Atari Sweden was already out ... I heard about some music company that pushed them, but as I recall it didn't go well there either ... as most of those preferred the ST. I know they were available in Denmark, prior to C-Lab, but that was over 10000 for a unit, whi...

Re: The history about C-Lab and the demise of the old Atari

Fwiw, I had no problems whatsoever finding & buying a Falcon at release in Sweden.

(I only kept it for a few months before reselling though, hugely deluded in believing there would be some sort of Falcon caused ST-era like resurrection.)

Re: My STE keeps crashing

Twice now it's crashed with no US or expansion slot stuff plugged in, both times just when I've inserted a floppy, literally as the disk clicked in, Is that a clue? (Warning: 23 year old memories) There's an interrupt served just when a disk is inserted in the drive, I used that once to write a ver...

Re: My STE keeps crashing

I'm just using the standard kettle plug into the back of the STE, I don't think there's anything wrong with the ACSI cable. I have a multimeter and a scope, any pointers as to where I should be poking? Is there a service manual floating around? While ACSI-cables are built somewhat differently, at o...

Re: My STE keeps crashing

What happens is the screen goes blank, it makes a sort of high pitched noise (it might be the screen that's doing that bit), the bottom left led on the keyboard goes dim The part about the led going dim has me somewhat worried it might be a short, although I don't really see how it would be intermi...

Since my STE already had dual TOS roms (but no switch) I just added the switch and tried booting the file manager with TOS 1.62 instead of TOS 2.06. No other changes. That works fine. There really is something to do with the TOS version here, please everyone reading this, reply with hardware spec de...

Hatari brings a utility called zip2st.sh which works under Linux. It probably will work with Mac OSX aswell, I think it only uses mtools and dd and stuffs like this. Thanks!

Re: Script to convert ATARI ST Pirate Gold to ST/MSA/HFE etc

This is a Mac-only tool, for real. Repurposing it for other OS' should be simple. So, if there's interest in adaptation, the reason this version is Mac only is because it uses the OSX tool "hdiutil" to mount copies of the included empty disk image (empty.st) to inject files from the non-imaged game...
