Re: TOS, Roms and ROM Fixes...any GUIDE?

understood...no pause then :lol:

tomorrow I will write about burning flash roms. Just only changing EPROMs chips for the EEPROM equivalent ones you wrote down. I will probably send you a PM before posting it because maybe you want to correct something :)

Next step?

Re: TOS, Roms and ROM Fixes...any GUIDE?

:) cool So, in 1.1.2 we have KAOS (looks great) for STfm and Mega ST, and Magic for STe and MegaSTe. Also, we have maybe MiNT that I read it is great too. From these, the most similar to an official TOS is KAOS (more info in the link Ralcool posted: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=11282&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a ...

The idea is to have a simple guide to follow and maybe we can suply links to advanced guides and threads on web so if someone is interested in can continue researching in an advance way. My idea is to follow a index, starting with easy things and g...

Re: TOS, Roms and ROM Fixes...any GUIDE?

Ok. We can go in order. First step which TOS is better for each system: 1. Atari STfm and Atari Mega ST (without any hardware modification): Official one: I suppose is 1.04 Rainbow TOS. (can be found at http://www.pangaelinwillow.net/ ) Not official (patched) ? With hardware modification (we will se...

Re: Atari Mega STE boots only in monochrome

I have been looking about HD FD in Mega STe and I found that maybe is more complicated than I expected... First I have to check if with in DD FD mode it crashes too. If it crashes...there is a different problem than the HD FD. If it doesn't crash I should make a decision...or I stay in DD mode or go...

Re: Atari Mega STE boots only in monochrome

no idea...I suppose it is an older one...how can I check it?
If it is the old one...I suppose it is better to go back to the DD FD, isn't it? :-(

Which Ajax part number should I have to buy? There is 2 part numbers, isn't it?


thank you!

Re: Atari Mega STE boots only in monochrome

yes, it is original. With any floppy disk (with or without autoboot), ALT key shows me 4 bombs. Without disk it shows them too :? . I disconnected the HD and then it boots from FD initializing autoboot without problems but if I reset it and press ALT, then 4 bombs again....What could it be? Moderato...

I tried EXOLON game. With TOS 2.05 GER it worked well. No autoboot pressing ALTERNATE but in GEM and going to the Auto folder and executing the .prg it worked. Now, with 2.06 UK if I press ALTERNATE, it crashes with 4 bombs before going to GEM. I will try to replace the floppy disk drive... :( This ...

Re: Atari Mega STE boots only in monochrome

With the Control key it worked OK: Disk A, Disk B and Disk C
With Alt key, sometimes I am able to boot to GEM but only with Disk A and Disk B...but not Autoboot with games. The FD seems to work OK.

Can it be because the TOS? it is a german 2.05

Thank you.
