Re: Locking the curser into the window?

Alt Gr key (US keyboards do not have this key), Are you sure? Every laptop I had was with US keyboard layout. And Alt Gr was there: 20190412_005015.jpg Have you purchased a laptop or desktop in the US? In Europe, I would expect that key to exist since that is how international characters are access...

Re: Locking the curser into the window?

If Canada does not have an Alt Gr key (US keyboards do not have this key), you use the Right Alt key + M to capture the mouse in the Hatari window.

Re: FX CAST Atari ST core

I had something similar, but I do not think I had the proper setup for online access in Hatari. I would contact Platoterm’s author. He appears to be very responsive. Bob C I was trying to use PlatoTerm in FX CAST. I am aware of that. However, I was simply mentioning that I had similar results in an...

Re: Hatari Alt+F4 not working

It appears the OP is using Windows. Big Box (https://www.launchbox-app.com/big-box) appears to be a front end that can be used to run games from different emulators.

I haven’t run the Windows version of Hatari for awhile. I don’t know if there’s a problem with using Alt-F4 to close Hatari.

Re: Unable to select any MIDI ports and Midi output path - Mac

I forgot. I remapped F12 away from Dashboard years ago. If you change the default key for Dashboard (or remove the shortcut key), then F12 will bring up the SDL menu.

Once you bring up the menu, you can change the shortcut key to some other key.

Re: High density .STX / pastis support

I did not think you were crazy. However, I assumed the AkaiSex program created a standard Atari floppy disk. It does not appear to do so. When I downloaded the AkaiSex program, I was able to read your Pasti (STX) file when I set Hatari to be a Falcon. I could not figure out what to do with the sampl...

Re: High density .STX / pastis support

more playing the .STX file works absolutely fine. the problem is that Hatari does not have an option to enable high density disks in Mega STe mode. In TT and Falcon modes it works absolutely fine. Unfortunately the TT mode runs quite slowly on my Apple, but Falcon is ok. If there could be a checkbo...

Re: a simple way to hide all Mist/Mister posts

In my case, it would be great if AF had the ability to select which forums to follow. On AtariAge, I only follow the Atari 8-bit and ST forums. I ignore all of the other forums. It would be great to do the same thing here.

It sounds like version 2.2 might be released this week. However, right now, it looks like portmidi isn’t included with the Windows binaries. Bob C

Re: Struggling with hard rive images on a Mac

If you want to try the image on Hatari's website on the macOS version, simply change the extension of the image from .image to .img. To try to prevent unknown files from being selected, the file selector only accepts certain extensions. You should be able to use the sample 80MB hard drive image in H...

If you at making changes, can you change disabling sound to S? Sometimes, I will press the fire button by mistake and shut off the sound.

@KarlH,

This version appears to fix both the resolution bug (having to start in ST Low) and crashing on systems with 4 MB of RAM. I also like the fact that it runs directly from a hard drive. Thanks for changing the game so quickly.

@simoncam - Does Frogs have the option to be a single player game? When I bring up the game, it appears that I have to have at least two human players. I am hoping this is not the case.
