Re: Of interest to Atlanta area folks I hope

Welcome to the party ScooberDiver! :-)
Just out of curiosity, how come you bought the Atari? Have you used similar computers in the past?

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

I do remember that we had sprite routines using the blitter, but I also remember implementing sprite routines using the CPU. I think we eventually used the blitter for most (all?) sprites though. We had lots of animations and wanted everything to work on 4 MB so we could not afford using preshifted ...

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

Regardless if you choose 8 or 4 bitplanes, you'll end up blitting/updating the parallax background each frame as you''ll hardscroll the foreground.
You should have enough time to do 5 + 3 bitplanes. We did 6 + 2 bitplanes in Willie's Adventures.

Re: A couple abandonware apps

So it's maintained by AtariSince1989? He hasn't been logged in for about 6 months? What's the status of the site? Last update was in 2015. Too bad we don't have a site, be it http/ftp or whatever, where we can preserve software, and where we can have multiple users with write access. Every site with...

Thanks! What did they change in NVDI 5, making it impossible for you to render text? Did they remove something?
I thought version 5 of NVDI was the ultimate version. :-)

Re: Demozoo "cloned" ??

What's the intention of the clone? Do they access the same databases or did they just mirror the databases at the time of their launch? I noticed that demozoo has slightly more data than bof, so I assume they just mirrored the databases? Seems just plain odd to me. I guess if their intention would b...

Re: The Atari ST and the Creative People vol. 2 (Campaign till 21th Oct.)

How are the conditions different/better on Indiegogo?
Also noticed that the the project goal will be 30% lower and a 12–18 % discount on all pledges will be introduced in this new campaign. How does that affect the project and the book? I assume that you'll need to cut down on something?

I'm pretty sure that only the Mega ST keyboards have cables with connectors on both ends. On the Mega STe and TT keyboards the cable is not detachable on the keyboard side.

Re: How Can I get a setup Falcon 68030 at 32Mhz

Yes! Thank you Thothy! That 'resetting to 16MHz behavior' has driven me almost crazy sometimes! Makes sense though, but I think your fix implements the behavior that most people really want/expect.

Re: MegaSTe hardware problems -help locate it please!

How about Quest Components? I just registered with them (in order to check the shipping costs) and found out that there's a minimum US$ 25 order (100 of those T-filters) and the cheapest shipping method would be US$ 50, so in total US$ 75 for 100 of them. And that's not even including import duty a...

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

I agree with your review as well. The book was a great initiative and I do like it and I'm glad I bought it, but there's definitely room for improvement. I found several passages hard (actually more or less impossible) to follow as well. Some of them just appeared to be nonsense, such as the example...

Yes! Good idea! :-)
Always use a proper tool! The PLCC sockets are fairly fragile.

The Z85C3010VSC and Z85C3010VSG are interchangeable, VSG is just a lead free version.

The wiki has been broken for a looong time now and I doubt it'll get fixed. So I welcome a list in this thread!
Would the wiki be fixed sometime we can update its list with what we have collected here.
