Re: Easiest way to get high speed serial on Mega STe?

Finally got some of these working at 115k. Had success with STalker (demo) and Connect95. I was puzzled by TAZ. It seems to allow you to switch between modem ports, but I couldn't get it to see "Serial 2." Within the program, the choice is labeled as "Serial 1", but in the docume...

Re: Easiest way to get high speed serial on Mega STe?

Just wanted to bump this a few years later. Anyone have a simple guide on how to set up a Mega STe's serial port to work at 57600?

Which serial port should I use on the Mega STe? How do you set up HSmodem? Which terminal programs properly support it?

Re: Jon Radoff talks "Space Empire Elite" and "Final Frontier"

Also, I'm curious: anyone out have old copies of Final Frontier? I'm looking specifically for original Radoff releases (ca 1988), which I have not been able to find anywhere. So far I have only found Jeff Bath's v1.54 (ca 1990), and Marc Ferrari's later sequel "Final Frontier II" (ca 1995).

Atari harassing Jeff Minter

Over the last day or so, Jeff Minter has been tweeting about insane legal threats "Atari" has been making over TxK. He said stuff like: it's achingly sad because I *loved* Atari. Getting to work there, and creating one of their last great games, was such a joy for me. And: But I could neve...

Re: Anyone tried Marcello's ST Mint sd card image?

STE, TOS 2.06, 4 MB RAM -> SD 0, CE_DD 1 This was the key. My CE has always been set to: * nothing 0 * CE_DD 1 * SD 2 Changing SD from 2 to 0 caused the MiNT image to boot properly with no bombs! Interestingly, though, the N and O drives do not appear, even though CE_DD is *not* disabled. --Josh

Re: Anyone tried Marcello's ST Mint sd card image?

Disabling CE_DD didn't make a difference, unfortunately.

The Atari still hangs up with 4 bombs after it displays "ACCs/DESKTOP.INF: C" on the screen, and never reaches the desktop.

Anyone tried Marcello's ST Mint sd card image?

I have been trying to use Marcello's "ST MiNT" SD card image on my Mega STe via the CosmosEx, but I get four bombs and never reach the MultiTOS desktop.

Have any other CE owners have tried it successfully? Any suggestions what I might need to do to get it to work?
