Re: Future Wars Music Demo

Nicely done!

The opening scene from Future Wars is scorched into my brain.

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

I ended up using files from your EasyAraMiNT beta2 rather than BeeKey. I prefer the simpler setup and vibe.

Anyway, I'm happy! Merci mec

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

So I gave up going down the USB/Pi route.

I found MacAranym, and then unsquashed the filesystem from BeeKey and combined the two.

Now I have MacAranym running Philippe's setup in a window. Perfect for my needs!

Thanks all.

Onwards!

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

Is there an alternate way to get to Aranym Setup? Alt+F12 is not working for me. Will keep trying. You can run aranym with the -G option, that should open the setup before booting the ROM. And since a commit done Jun 26, you can also use the middle mouse button to enter setup. Where do I specify th...

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

Saving a file to H:\Documents did not survive the reboot. Thinking about the first boot, it was very quick - too quick for the initial persistence file sync/copy to happen. So I am wondering whether the steps for Mac Install listed in BeeKey Manual are correct? Given that a Mac ISO is provided, I'd ...

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

Neither Alt+F12 works to do anything? Choosing keyboard fro the setup did not change anything. I have had to create my own keyboard.tbl using KeyEdit as it was the only way I could get punctuation to type correctly. Timezone change that I made does not survive a boot which makes me think persistence...

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

I built an older (3.3) version of Mac-Linux-USB-Loader, it has those options so now I'm booting OK!

Here it is for other Mac users.

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

Hmm. The version of Mac-Linux-USB-Loader I am using does not have the options in step 8 & 9 of the guide?

8. Click and activate “This ISO lacks an EFI-enabled kernel”
9. Click and deactivate “This ISO has code older than Ubuntu 14.10”

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

I'll buy a new USB key and try again.

I failed with one USB key (which is now dead so likely that was the problem) and various SD cards and adapters (error on Linux startup).

Is it possible to run this in a VMware Fusion?

I tried and got so far, but my linux knowledge is not enough to fix/continue.

Re: [A]tari [G]ame [T]ools - 2D prototyping engine for STE

This is really cool. My only issue are that the examples are too big/complete. I'd like to see smaller examples of each part of the API. I'm about to do a card game and am considering this framework but I'll have to spend time checking all the examples to see if it does everything I need. I'll dive ...

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

the core still has some real issues (like the 4:3 aspect ratio problem Paradroyd mentioned, its particularly noticeable when using a typical 16x9 HDMI display) Is that really an issue? I just correct the aspect ratio using an option in the HDMI display's built in menu. Tried that, doesnt work for m...

Re: Turbochip - 7-channel YM+DMA replay

The odd thing is that my Mac shows < 20% total CPU usage when Hatari is stuttering. Still, must be something on my setup.

The stuttering does seem to settle down eventually after the first screen of playback.

Re: Turbochip - 7-channel YM+DMA replay

Another relevant fact about ST & PCE crossover is that HUDSON looked into using the M68000 for the PCE, going so far as to make some hardware and games, but eventually went with their own custom 8-bit CPU. Do you have source of that ? If it's true, it was a huge mistake imo, because the 6502 on...

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

Hi Ijor,

I was wondering, is there any way for this core to influence software 68000 emulation? Not so much automatic conversion form the definition to C but some of the details that software 68000 currently lack.

Nice game! Walking animation is so fun.

It was a bit unexpected for the level to end when the last coin was only freed, not collected.
