Cool Atari ST hires posters

Hi, I'm looking for a nice poster with Atari ST theme in high resolution to be printed on a professional printer and used as a poster on the wall. The resolution should be bigger than 2mpx. I found two pic on Google that I like, but they are too small: http://images.pcworld.com/news/graphics/191769-...

Early ST BootROM dumped!

Hi there.

As I promised, we made the dump of the bootROM chips of my early 520ST+.
It has 16K and no emulator can handle it. Try on yourself.

How do you know this is _the one_ without TOS? :wink:

520ST RAM expansion?

Hello,

I'm thinking if it would be nice to have more memory in my 520ST+. Of course it has 1Meg, but I'm curious about RAM expanding to more.
Is it possible on small 520s? And if so, how much RAM at max. and is there some scheme or guide?

Re: maxYMiser version 1.29 released

Hi. Don't you know what MaxYMiser switches to NTSC mode on my PAL machine with PAL UK TOS (any)? I have a BOOT ROM based 520ST+. When I turn it on, the bootscreen is in NTSC (even if it's a german version). Then I boot a UK TOS, it will switch to PAL. But when I execute MaxYMiser, it gets back to NT...

Hi, is there any other tool than Saint for converting .SND to .YM?
I tried it and the .YM quality is a bit crap (jerky sound, non synchronized, bad HW envelopes). A command line tool would be better.

I solved the problem:
Just tried to boot up UK TOS and it runs in PAL, however the BOOT ROM screen is still in NTSC. Or it looks like that :)

Well, don't mistake. My machine is german 520ST+ with no TOS. I boot TOS from floppy. I use normal LCD TV, as for my other 8bit and 16bit computers.

Hello again :) I'm quite confused why does my 520 ST+ work in NTSC mode after power on. It's german version with DE keyboard and label underneath. So it should be PAL machine.

I tried it with ROMDUMP and TOSDUMP but with no success. ROMDUMP doesn't dump anything and TOSDUMP dumps actual TOS in RAM.
