Tried latest aVNC at http://atari.gfabasic.net/files/avnc.zip ? I don't have a firebee, so no way for me to test it.

Ace tracker needs DSP, and Firebee doesn't emulate it (yet).

Even if it would, it's possible that both CPU & DSP would need to match closely to Falcon speeds (which they won't) for music to sound correct.

We allready asked author and the answer was that he would even release the new version for Atari if there would be enough people interested.
He said something like if enough Atarians would buy/register PC version (at lower price) they would get new Atari version for that price.

If you do get around to trying out AtarICQ 0.176 on the Firebee I'd be keen to hear how it works out for you :)

I don't want to hijack the thread but AtarICQ runs perfectly on my Firebee. So, don't worry :D

For post-it notes, You can try Notes, from Dominique Béréziat. I think it runs on the 'Bee.

As for Photoline, as far as I know the only one able to make it work is Mathias and nobody has been able to figure out how. This was discussed in this forum somewhere. However, Vision, from Jean Lusetti, might be a good and maybe better alternative since Jean has released it as freeware, and has resumed development. I think there's a thread here about this program and he seems open to feedback.

I got Photoline working on my FireBee under 68k software emulation. But it is so slow that is unusable.
Vision is working on the FireBee but due 68k code loading big pictures takes way to much time to be usable. BUT!!! Jean is eveloping Vision further and there is allready test version of it which is using LDG modulet from Zview to upload pictures way faster. There are also some other improvements. I am testing it and now it is usable :)

I use version 2.30. ST and not TT version!
You have to copy 68kemu.prg into Photoline directorz and then drag photo_st.prg on 68kemu.prg and wait.
After some time first two dialogue apears and mouse is moving very sllow. You have to wait quite some more time that mouse starts move normaly and you are ready to use Photoline.
