Re: tims atari midi world website

Few years ago, while testing Hatari's MIDI compatibility, I went through programs available at Tim's world. Midi Mouse was one of the nicer programs. One can produce pretty OK music easily with it without having any particular experience in producing music. I definitely recommend checking it out.

Re: MiST wiki EmuTOS image version update?

While ancient EmuTOS versions were much slower than real TOS at booting, nowadays EmuTOS boots up clearly faster than the real TOS version.

EmuTOS has recently acquired several TOS v2 desktop features. There's also a branch where desktop rendering is accelerated with Blitter.

Re: OIDS hard disk and floppy versions for test

Re: Original ST TOS.

Rescued people not running to the ship, and missiles not flying (even on ST) is a bit more serious problem for Oids playing that the TT-specific intro screen problem, although one would notice that first. :-)

Re: Hatari 2.0.0 & MacOS Sierra 10.12.4 crash problem

Now that you have it working, you will want to search on Google for actual Atari ROMs. The included EmuTOS is good, but you'll have the best compatibility with the original Atari ROMs. There's a newer and somewhat more compatible EmuTOS version available: https://sourceforge.net/projects/emutos/fil...

Re: Hatari 2.0.0 & MacOS Sierra 10.12.4 crash problem

Seems like NULL pointer access called by qsort() callback. That's only called in scandir() function. According to your backtrace, that's in Hatari fallback version of that, which seems weird because I would have expected OSX to provide scandir() in system libraries i.e. your build may be configured ...

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.8

For ARM or x86, it would be much more complicated. Several EmuTOS parts require a Big Endian CPU. Many parts (if not all) written in C require that the "int" type is 16-bit wide, I'm not sure that GCC can support that on those processors. And of course, all the assembler sources would hav...

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.8

MiST FPGA simulation started from ST, and moved from there to other 80's computers. EmuTOS OS started from ST and moved from there to Amiga, so far... I wonder whether EmuTOS will eventually cover a larger number of the m68k machines simulated by MiST (MachinTos, Sinclair QL)? :-) (Not really being ...

Re: GEMDOS Drive steals letter to IDE

Which drive Hatari's GEMDOS HD emulation uses, depends on what Hatari options one uses. There are few different methods for specifying which drive GEMDOS HD uses, it uses C: only by default. One can also set an option with which GEMDOS HD skips existing HD image partitions, but it's possible that Ha...

Re: Pack-Mania

I'm not insisting on anything, I just mentioned it in case it was supposed to work and you'd want to fix it if it won't. :-)

It already works with 192k EmuTOS, which is the EmuTOS version intended for old ST games, that's enough for me.

There seems to be something very weird happening with mint.cnf parsing. Depending on how much comment or echo lines there are after INIT= line, MiNT either parses, or doesn't parse the INIT line. Any idea why I get CNF file problems only with TT emulation (= ACSI), not with Falcon (=IDE)? This prob...

Re: VanillaMiNT has finally been updated

MiNT has fun when loading CNF files by passing odd (non-even) buffers to the disk API. Even if this questionable, we are going to fix EmuTOS to support that on plain 68000. Currently, the EmuTOS IDE driver crashes with illegal address in such case. Any idea why I get CNF file problems only with TT ...
