Re: Editing a message

While I understand arguments of the other camp and can imagine that we may be a minority after all (although the poll doesn't indicate it for sure), the attitude shown here by AF administrators left a bad taste for me as well. We are like 20 active Atarians here and no, we are going to pretend we ru...

Re: HDDRIVER and DOS/Windows partitions

actually due to barrel shifter, byteswap (ROL.W #8,D0) on 68030 and newer is almost for free . Just measured on my TT with HDDRIVER and XFERRATE: With SW byte-swap: 1850 kByte/s.

Re: HDDRIVER and DOS/Windows partitions

ARAnyM and Hatari does that just fine :) I don't bother with Windows-compatibility, I partition the SD-card (used with IDE->SD adapter, a lot less hassle than finding expensive CF-cards that works reliably with the Falcon) on the Atari, and if I need to access it on my PC I use ARAnyM or Hatari for...

Re: Looking for some tools GCC / GDB and a bit of advice.

As a Devpac alternative, vasm (http://sun.hasenbraten.de/vasm) is way to go. The most painful thing currently is debugging. You either has to rely on an emulator's abilities (Hatari, Steem) or do it the old school way (Devpac's MON etc). gdb used to work nicely with gcc-2.x compiled sources but that...

Flyback is always a good idea to replace and yes, that would be the first thing I'd try. Also, the service manual has some good hints on what to check.

Re: Assembler video tutorials on Vretrocomputing

The funny thing is that this tutorial has shown me for the first time in my 20+ year usage of Devpac that I can run my programs without GEM via that checkbox :D

Re: :: We Love Atari (Volume Two) Atari Corp. ::

I will swear on whatever book you choose that the label was 1040ST, not 1040STf. This book says that the first all in one ST was a 1040STf. And did it have a floppy drive? Because AFAIK, there wasn't any plain 1040 ST machines at all (i.e. without the PSU + floppy). So yours would be the first I ha...

For me, this is a clear winner against the ST Anthology trilogy. Much more polished, proof-read, structured, with the right amount of text and pictures. My dream is to see "Business is War" in this form, that would be the ultimate Atari book ever. Thanks Karl!

I guess Cyprian means also the sound matrix emulation. Otherwise shoggoth is right, there's no reason why one couldn't implement Falcon compatible XBIOS sound driver.

It's nice for a developer who would, for instance, try to create an emulator (thinking CosmosEx here). But I see your dilema, it's a huge piece of hardware. :-)
