Re: NEW and UNUSED ATARI 1040 STE for SALE

Don't listen to the haters. It's great that there are still NOS Ataris out there, with matching box. The price is correct when a buyer and a seller agree - and everyone else's opinion doesn't matter at all. Nice machine! Unless that one is called troed :lol: Haters ? What an inappropriate word.

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

I said at least 4x here that it is same in all TOS 1.00-4.04 - release is negative, pressing is positive. Yep, not always. Forgive me Atari people that I did not see that some non-English key press will return negative value, in SW in English language. Ah, and that changes not the whole thing - EmuT...

Re: NEW and UNUSED ATARI 1040 STE for SALE

OK, I think that we need to clarify here some things: OP should not call this 'new' but 'unused'. I'm who repairing computers, electronic, so I know what talking here. 27 years old STE, never or barely used has no chance to work at all. Because capacitors are dead for sure, Anyone who buys it should...

Re: Forgotten SW project

OK, I got what is AIF - basically it is just file format, called container too. In same purpose as WAV in Win. World. What matters here is not it, but audio sample parameters. This player can play samples if they are 44100 or 48000 Hz . Stereo. 16-bit little Endian - yes, yes, too limited, I know, b...

Re: Forgotten SW project

As I know, AIF is Steinberg's sample format. I need exact specs of possible parameters with it. So: samplerates, mono/stereo, bit count (usually 8 or 16) . Would be good to link some good file in that format, so I can examine. Some shorter song for instance. And of course, playback possible on STE, ...

You don't get it, do you? Why do you still waste time on these obsolete, inefficient machines? Good question. Atari ST is now obsolete, But it is not inefficient - I like how sharing of RAM between video and CPU bus is solved. For it's time, it was beast, very fast and cheap computer. ACSI port is ...

OK, my last words here: this OPL2 is just obsolete. Questionable ST port compatibility. Some proposed here MP3 playback module for ST.

Re: Controlling the floppy drive LED

Yep, it seems it. But is good to set flock system variable on, to prevent access to PSG in Vblank.
Flock is addres $43E - normally 0. You write there $FF to prevent access to PSG.

Atari ST parallel port is bidirectional. I designed EPROM programmer where of course both direction are used.

Re: Controlling the floppy drive LED

PSG port 14, bit 1 for drive A. Low=LED on. High=LED off.
For more, I need to know what programming language you use.
And will need to disable Vblank access to that port too during light-show.
