Re: Hard 'n' Heavy improved, final update

Hatari 2.0 had a bug in 68030 instruction cache emulation when using prefetch/CE mode. It would be better to test latest Hatari snapshot. Or with 2.0, try whether disabling cycle-exact / prefetch mode helps.

Re: Bad Mood : Falcon030 'Doom'

Doug's software synthesis / mixing / sound prioritization stuff is really nice. For such a low CPU usage it's surprisingly close to what full MIDI synthesizer like FluidSynth on Linux produces. And FluidSynth uses more CPU on my few GHz PC Linux, than I've understood Doug's code to take with BadMood...

Re: Lucasarts games with midi music.

ScummVm definitely won't work on standard ST. When I tried the Atari version in Hatari, it needed FPU and 256MB(!) of TT-RAM to work with few of my LucasArts games. ST native Sierra games do have MIDI (I've tried with Hatari + QSynth on Linux). For more comprehensive list with few surprises, see: ht...

Re: There are tons of BEST of threads, how about the WORST ST games?

I guess this is meant only for commercial games, not free/hobby ones.

Re: Hard 'n' Heavy improved, final update

Would be good if someone could test it on TT.


Does it already work with Hatari's TT emulation, so that only testing on real HW is needed?

-> If something doesn't work on real HW, but works on Hatari, that should be reported to Hatari devs, so that it can be fixed.

Re: VOXX-Falcon Vocoder Fullversion?

Axxim, do you have any idea why the freeware version would freeze in Hatari right after it starts up? On DSP side it runs few DSP instructions (including DSP RESET), and on CPU side it doesn't run any instructions.

The above linked Voxx demo version doesn't freeze.

Re: monitor/CRT emulation

Good CRT emulation requires emulating multiple things: * aspect ratio * color bleeding between pixels * gradual pixel color change between frames None of the Hatari developers is looking into these, but you could make a try at them and post patches for consideration to hatari-devel.

Re: gcc 7.1 for the ST series

Static linking doesn't work for Glibc. It loads several parts of itself dynamically, I think at least related to name resolution, localization and crypto. But GCC is anyway pretty self-contained, and anything it depends on, should be well library API/version controlled etc. I.e. it should be fine as...

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.
