Re: Whats wrong with todays games?

Hi! Quite interresting topic, here :) I have to disagree on fundamental grounds, though. ;) The high volume video games market pretty much started during the 70`s with Atari`s VCS console. There were tons and tons of games for it. And while it sure had it`s fair share of classics, there were many *r...

Re: Future of atari emulation

Hi fred, just to make things a bit easier upon the long term future of Atari emulation: There'll allways be the option to run an(y) emulator inside a VM or another emulator. As long as those are present, there won't be a serious prob. E.g.: I do run win Atari emulators inside of wine (Kubuntu/Linux)...

Re: Atari st series computers conversion PC

Hi

I do have Best's silicon caps in two ST's and they do better the tactile feedback a lot. They shouldn't be combined with their springs, however. They result in much to stiff key presses.

Good luck!

Re: Atari st series computers conversion PC

Well, just try it, right? ;)

It probably even depends on you actual motherboard. The sheer size but the IC's placement, also.

Good luck!

Yepp: http://www.atari-forum.com/download/file.php?id=16851 http://www.atari-forum.com/download/file.php?id=16853 But even without the netbook case the ground place for it remains the same. I seriously doubt you can place a laptop board there. :roll: 8) Cheers, AxelG

Re: Atari st series computers conversion PC

Hi,

well I tried to place an (albeit complete) Netbook inside a ST.
It had to be an STFM and it was a pretty close fit, still. ;)

Re: Atari st series computers conversion PC

Nice conversion, Robson.

I did a (new, add.) 520 ST USB keyboard which I connected to a new, much stronger PC. This way I have an Win7 64bit ST ;)

Take care.

Re: Atari st series computers conversion PC

Hi, first of all, I`d be blown away by a *really* powerfull and still quiet Atari ST PC. The ones I got are both Atoms. Which is *very* nice, but not to strong, either ;) Full HD Video is ok, but new Games are rather not. As far as i remember, the 1040's ST main board just sat beneeth the keyboard a...

Re: Atari st series computers conversion PC

I found that AMD 6770 from MSI and PowerColor are only one that will fit in megafile case ( or ST case presumably ) :/ Hi! Rather not, I should think. The card and the board will probably collide with the keyboard, there. The space is really quite constricted. Even I had a headache or two. And I ju...

Re: Atari st series computers conversion PC

Hi Calimero, (hi again thread) ;)

nice mod!

Just where did you get the 90° raiser card / extension between AMD grafix card and main board?

And which tool do you use to display cpu/gpu temperatures in the task bar?

Thanks!!

Jup.

It works like a charm right now. I already played Cube (simple and straight forward GPL shooter) with my classic Atari VCS jostick. Connected to the ST`s joystick port 1.

*sigh*

Thanks, Joska. More on this tomorrow ;)

Re: Atari st series computers conversion PC

It's the Teensy 2.0, I buy them from PJRC.com. The Teensy 2.0++ can also be used but it's slightly bigger and a little bit more expensive. You would need it if you want to convert a Stacy keyboard, because you'll need the extra pins when you connect it to the keyboard matrix. So I finally came to b...

Re: Atari st series computers conversion PC

Cool.

What I really like about this is, you Joska (and to a slightly lesser degree we all) open new doors. New possibilities. ;)

Have you had time to check the joystick?


-> Which Teensy did you use for my adapter(s) and where can I buy them best? ;)
