Re: Best ST joypad?

I remember a joypad I had, but I dont remember the name. It was white-ish, and fit perfectly in both hands. It was a two-part seperated pad, with one part going on one hand and the other in... the other hand. It worked a bit like todays Nintendo Switch thingys, so on left was the d-pad and on the r...

Re: There are tons of BEST of threads, how about the WORST ST games?

Streetfighter - The arcade game wasn't exactly a classic, but the ST port is the worst example of a button mashing "fighting game" I've ever played. Street fighter? Really? Dude the first version started it all. You cant diss the OG of all fighting games ever made. Take it back :) It was ...

Probably gonna get some flak for this, but James Pond and James Pond 2 were rubbish ports on the ST. On the Amiga they were really fun, but the ST ports STUNK!

Re: Can you solder surface mount? (new hardware)

The key to soldering surface mount ICs with fine pitch without any specialised equipment is to tack-solder the device to just two pads on opposite corners of the device and then, do something you would never deliberately do when soldering at any other time... you flood all the pins along each side ...

Re: ROBOCOP 2. Amiga or ST?

As a huge Robocop (Film and Coin-Op) fan, i found the Home games a very mixed bag. The Original Robocop was superb on a 128K ZX Spectrum, C64 version looked nice, but bugged, not found a console version i like. I really enjoyed the Speccy version too, although before I got my ST I played the Amstra...

ROBOCOP 2. Amiga or ST?

I first played Robocop 2 on a demo disk from Amiga Format at a friends house (I think it was Amiga Format anyway, may have been another mag) and man it looked and sounded amazing. The sprites were huge and the nuke animations when you shot someone looked fantastic at the time... So I bought it for S...

Re: Atari ST Game Sound FX Sample Archive?

Not all ST games use sampled sounds. Many just use YM register settings to provide sound effects. This requires disassembly of source code to obtain their values and contexts.

Re: Gauntlet II vs Ranarama (ST) - Which Is Best?

both are amazing games... One was included in the 520STFM Power Pack, the other one was in The 1040STFM pack if I remember correctly?

Gauntlet II is the better game though in my opinion, but Ranarama has one of the best title tunes for any ST game.
