Re: MyAES and Calamus

Most Atari ST software has issues with third-party OS extensions in some way. :(

Re: Please Help (Fried Pins) I think i am slowly killing my STE

Well, I only made the software while Christian Hellmuth modified the start/finish part of the track to recognize the signals. So he should know best how it is supposed to work. :)

Re: Please Help (Fried Pins) I think i am slowly killing my STE

I can not imagine what causes that much problems. I remember there was one cable of the joystick port that had to be connected with one of two others dependend on which joystick direction signal should be told. Impossible to wreck it that way?! I made a slot car software myself some time ago. We gav...

Re: Hatari on tablet device

It is working now. I think it has something to do with the Android 5 mounting the SD card write protected for an unknown reason. Copying the Atari files to the internal storage made it working.

Re: Hatari on tablet device

The emulator is working, but even if I turn off all write protections in the settings menu the emulator is not able to write to my gemdos drive. What am I doing wrong?

Yes, the esc codes are mentioned in the manual as well. Some of them I used often. :)

I did try to use A to F in addition and yes, the colors go on changing but only begin to repeat instead of giving the missing ones. :(

Re: Dreaming of a Next Gen Atari - one can Dream!

You want GEM applications. Understood. Clean not necessary means to be useful. Or as a programming book for the Atari once mentioned with a chapter (but in german): "GEM graphics - extremly sleepy". Maybe people want programs in GEM even if they feel slow and sleepy?! Maybe they did not wa...

>Omikron.Basic< How do I set the color for PRINT?

Hello :) In the Omikron.Basic manual I found the ESC sequence ESC+b x" to change the text color of the print command, where x is the number of the color. For couriosity I can not get some colors because I can only use the numbers 0 to 9. So black, dark green and some others are missing. How do ...

"The existence of clean GEM applications"


There is no "clean" GEM. There is only GEM. "Clean" in terms of GEM only exists in the imagination of certain people. Most of them never wrote a program themself.

Re: Dreaming of a Next Gen Atari - one can Dream!

By thinking GEM has something to do with "clean" you miss the point. We are in the Atari world. And this world was very different to Apples world. Where Apple made very strict rules for programmers, Atari made nothing. I personally think that the imagination of the graphic environment has ...

It is only one big mistake to thing that GEM has anything to do with "clean". Maybe because of this any new Atari close was mostly some sort of a GEMulator rather than a fully compatible Atari clone...

Re: How good was the Falcon?

Back in 1992 the Falcon was able to do most things better than the multi media PC level 1 standard which was set back in 1991: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multimedia_PC. That was one reason why the Falcon was so good at that time. :)
