Re: RIP Steve Bak

That's sad. RIP, Goldrunner is still one of my fondly remembered games.

And as a Germany magazine (I think it was Power Play, Happy Computer or ST Magazin) wrote "Scrolls nochmal, Steve"
Scroll it again, Steve! ;)

Re: I have known the news: I am a millionaire!

Same for the "I taped you through your webcam" scam...most annoying are these countless mails nagging for bitcoins.
I haven't found a way to safely filter them yet into a trash bin.

Maybe someday someone will write an anthology on "Typical Internet SCAMS since 1995" :lol:

Re: "small footprint" C++ programs for STs?

Nice although I personally still prefer plain C. But maybe this will find use cases in porting other software over?

Re: a simple way to hide all Mist/Mister posts

It would help if they are excluded from the "Unread posts" selection aswell.
I'm in for any RSS feed without them included too.

I currently have the feed URL feed.php listed in my feedly.

Re: GFA Basic Simulator Needed

For Linux there is X11 Basic which claims to be mostly compatible. Maybe your program works with that?

Otherwise just install a suitable emulator.

Re: GodLib

The assembler files need lots of interface changes. They all use Pure C calling convention using registers while GCC needs the classic stack based parameter passing.

I once started it and then decided it was not worth the time for me.

Re: Easy way to detect Atari ST system.

Check for the cookie jar. STFs and STFMs either don't have one at all or are marked correctly in the _MCH cookie. You can then use _MCH and _VDO cookie. It is also possible to detect presence of hardware by accessing its hardware registers and catching exceptions. I personally think the cookie jar i...

Re: USB printer driver project

Idea: collect one character at at a time and construct the USB printjob internally. Transfer it via USB onbly after after a timeout of 10s when no further updates have been received.

I doubt there are serious applications trying to output at such a slow rate.

Re: USB printer driver project

Another possibility, if someone knows how to capture the data going to the parallel port, my driver could transfer that data to the USB. I don't know if that would work however. For the FireBee, I don't know. My idea would be a BIOS intercept routine for the printer port outputs. That should be com...

Re: USB printer driver project

This is a great project and finally something to give the Netusbee more credibility on its USB part. The driver seems to be for TOS. Will it also work for smaller systems, e.q. 1MB STF? Even if it is without NVDI, would a passthrough for PCL or ESC/P to the USB port be feasible so that any TOS appli...

Re: Help getting my ST out of the attic and hooked up to a modern LCD monitor

Use the FlashFloppy firmware for the Gotek, there is plenty of decent documentation for this. The USB A-A cable method works fine.

Re: Ebay advertising accounts

We have been discussing this between us moderators.

One of the ideas would be to create a specific subforum only for Ebay auctions.
As long as there is no other spam by those persons, we do not object posting about auctions on Atari stuffs.

More user feedback would be appreciated though.
