Re: MegaFile 44 - what sort of interface?

Hmmm ... the guy has $45 on postage, it has no cables ... if I can get it for $50 sounds like it might be worth it.

MegaFile 44 - what sort of interface?

Hi All.. Just wondering if the MegaFile 44 (which uses SyQuest 44mb carts) is a standard SCSI beast or is it one of those old MFM/RLL drives like the rest of the MegaFile series? I ask because one is up for auction, and I thought that if it's standard SCSI I could unplug the SyQuest mechanism and us...

Re: Just got my Discovery cart, but I can't get it to do jack

The Spectre 128 is just a cart with the two 128k ROMs (2x64k?) out of a Mac. The Magic Sac was the older type with the 64k ROMs. So a discovery cart with the ROMs in it will work exactly as a Spectre would. Great piece of kit back in the day, nowadays people pay you money to take the old macs away :(

Dark SC1224

Hi people I've got a SC1224 here on my desk, and even with brightness and contrast wound all the way up, it's still looking like 20-30% of brightness. Now before I get too excited about fixing it/getting it fixed, is it more likely the picture tube is shot, or is it likely to be the power input caps...

Re: ATARI ST IDE INTERFACE V2.00 & FLASHABLE TOS EXPANSION

So if I understand this right, Atari had IDE support in 2.0x series of TOS, then took it out for 3.0x series and then put it back in for the 4.0x series? No wonder they went down the tube 8O

Alrighty ... :twisted:

I would see this on a white shirt, with black bomb with edges slightly blurred in grey gradient, or on black shirt, white bomb, again edges faded/antialiased :)

have it in a scalable vector format if you want it. (quiet day at work - nice to play with inkscape :) )

Re: ATARI ST IDE INTERFACE V2.00 & FLASHABLE TOS EXPANSION

One last question - ppera - why did you have to patch 2.06 to get it to autoboot ide? I thought 2.06 already supported this? Patch of TOS 2.06 is required for booting from twisted IDE. And with patch, booting is faster in case that no drive attached. ... Flash EPROM in Falcon ? It would be little h...

Re: Using Steem to run hardware synths

kola - the VGA to monochrome cable should work on any TFT (LCD) screen as long as it supports VGA standard (640*480). The ST high was almost standard, unlike the ST Low and Med which are basically equivalent to CGA, which is now defunct, hence why you don't get Atari Color support on new LCDs. On th...
