Re: Atari and Amiga dev coming from modern systems

DML is also using gcc. :)

The important thing to realise is that you don't need to use/target MiNT if using gcc. Everything happens on host machine (cross compilation) and you only debug things remotely.

Re: Atari and Amiga dev coming from modern systems

As soon as you start looking at Atari as an embedded systems development platform, writing stuff for it turns to be pretty comfortable and easy (esp. thanks to m68k-atari-mint-gcc & friends). If your starting point is ST-Low with floppy, development is quite hard.

Re: ST Monitors Free for Pickup

Guys, don't be silly. Postage from the US would cost a fortune, way more than you can purchase any SC1224/SC1435 in Europe. Well, if you find one that is. Isn't the SC1435 pretty hard to find nowadays? I don't know, is it? http://www.ebay.de/itm/ATARI-Monitor-SC-1435-Monitor-RGB-STEREO-fur-ATARI-ST...

What about it? He offers it only if you "Buy it now". I don't think those are going to sell for such price so it's perhaps a desperate move to attract more buyers.

Re: Natcar

I'd also like to know why xboot is all garbage until I move the mouse over things... Not sure if everyone's SuperVidel does that, or I'm just special. I guess because it uses the original VDI which in turn uses the Blitter which is not snooped by the SuperVidel. Start after NVDI.PRG+SV_XBIOS.PRG an...

I think MadMax2023 widely misinterpreted the news entry in Aniplayer. :) VIDIX is the abbreviation for VIDeo Interface for *niX. VIDIX was designed and introduced as an interface for fast user-space drivers providing such video performance as mga_vid does for Matrox cards. It's also very portable. T...

Re: My new, compact Atari -> VGA adapter.

You have to fool the apps that they're starting in the resolution they were written for, while at the same time switching both back and forth from the resolution you initiated, _and_ you need to keep TOS/GEM/AES/VDI happy since it definitely is unable to switch out its internal data structures on t...

Not sure whether this kind of setup was even supported. I'd say you're supposed to use either of the drives but not both.

Also, I'd try to disconnect EtherNAT although that's a kind of desperate move, yes.
