Re: Alternate TT hi/VGA adapter

All the monitors I've tried will scale vertically and cannot reduce size. There will always be some moiré at high res. Best way is either all white or all black background. On the other hand I think it's for the best since old CRT monitors were 4:3 ratio and newer non wide LCD are 5:4, which means t...

Thank you, CodeKiller! :D http://i.imgur.com/LKmmCJW.jpg There's a moiré pattern but I just played with it quickly to adjust the image, might be able to clean it spending some more time adjusting it. Also the LCD monitor is a chinese low quality one I have around (...

Re: Wish we could get this...

I doubt they are 3D printed, most likely someone got hold of the original molds. I can find how much it would cost to manufacture a mold for STf/STe casing, I have a friend who works in the industry here in Portugal and I can have a talk with him. He's a bit overwhelmed with work right now, will hav...

An idea for external ST keyboard case

Just saw on Reddit (r/MechanicalKeyboards subreddit) a great idea to make a case to convert an internal ST keyboard to external together with a simple adapter for MegaST/MegaSTe/TT.

Re: Atari Megafile 30

You need TOS 2.0x to be able to boot from it Why is that? Are you confusing this with an IDE drive? TOS 1.0x can boot from ACSI hard disks very well. (Though I recommend at least TOS 1.04, because several file system bugs were fixed there.) I was convinced of that but since I haven't used my Megafi...

Re: Atari Megafile 30

The Megafile 30 is an external 32MB hard drive for the ST, connected through the ACSI port (grossly put a simplified SCSI port but not compatible). The hard disk inside usually is a very noisy Seagate ST-238R with a MFM interface. You need TOS 2.0x to be able to boot from it, otherwise hard disk uti...

Re: PC mouse mod for ATARI.

I reported the symptoms to Kevin from KMtech, he might have refined the programming of the PIC and make it work since I bought this in October 2015. Might have been the mice I tried it with, though I tried with several that worked ok with my DIY adapter. Don't forget they advertise them mainly to th...

Re: PC mouse mod for ATARI.

I used the Mouse adapter v1.3 schematic in this page to make my own adapter, works fine. I also bough one on Ebay, the only diference is that it acelerates cursor a bit.

Re: [MSTE] booting issues

I see you are using the AHDI driver, there should be a formatting utility called 'hdx.prg'. Do you have all the files that came with the driver?

Check out how to use AHDI here: http://www.atari-wiki.com/?title=AHDI (the download link at the bottom doesn't work anymore)

Hi there. Several things are possible. The most probable is that the HDD is failing. Not much you can do except backup what you have in there while it works. Then replace the HDD... which is difficult, since is 25 year old tech. Best options are the Ultrasatan, or a SCSI to CF/SD if you want to keep...
