Re: SOLD:Atari Falcon 030 on eBay Australia

Most of the gear that gets passed around down here is on word of mouth. STFM's can be got for $50 if you know the right shady bloke and $200 if you resort to ebay.

Re: Atari Falcon 030 on eBay Australia

The owner just bought a Falcon off a mate here, in Melbourne. This must be his older one. Looks like Tos 4.01 or 02.

Re: How many Falcons were sold?

Tassie used to have a few Atarian's. Fujination springs to mind. Melbourne has half a dozen that I know of and only two have Falcons.

Re: How many Falcons were sold?

It is amazing to think that number is so low. I can remember seeing a Falcon in toys R us, here in Melbourne. I fell in love with Falcon's the first time I used one and had to have one.

Re: How many Falcons were sold?

Not a good time to tell everyone my second Falcon cost $50? Back around 2000ish. It had a cooked accelerator and a couple of broken traces. I bought it for spares and got it working.

Re: Bad Mood : Falcon030 'Doom'

Firstly, I am downloading everything on a PC, unzipping it there and transferring to the Falcon via USB Parcp. I have ensured I have DOOMU.WAD and it's the correct filesize (12,408,292) when checking in Windows. I am using Bad Mood v0.37. Do you also have the other files present? BMT1.WAD and the t...

Re: Demo scene

I used to hang with a few Amiga nuts back in the 80's and 90's. When all those ST demos came out doing all the things they said it couldn't do, it was pure gold. There were things the Atari could do better, just not as easily. That is when it showed off programming talent. I used nail their butts to...

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

Understood. Both options would be pretty useful if they were available. I was thinking a desk acc which you can select low/med/high. Add that to emuTOS or patch 2.06. 8) No one would have dreamt of doing this 30 years ago.

So is this ScreenblaSTer? :P

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

I was thinking more of a desk acc or the like that could switch resolutions by toggling the mono detect line. It would force a reboot, but it would be pretty cool. I can't quite get my head around how troed's ttp works. But, it is one of the neatest tricks I have ever seen on an ST. I have a couple ...

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

Just a thought, would it be possible to internally modify the mono detect pin with a gate that can be switched in software? Just send it high or low from an application? Another thought, remove the 13 pin socket and replace it with a 15 pin socket. In theory you could deisgn a PCB that drops into th...

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

Holy cow. Actually, more like holy grail. If you could compliment/combine overscan it would be the end all and be all of everything ST video.

In saying that, this is bloody neat.

Re: TT030 clone - is it possible ?

I guess if you are offloading video to a card (or processor) there isn't much point running native resolutions? More for GEM based work.

Re: My Atari Stack (at least some of it)

I spend far too much time running around after the kids and not enough playing, these days. I plan to build a garage and new desks to give me more room. Especially for the TT, it needs cranking. My machine that seems to get the most use is a stock Falcon too.

Nice pile, pretty broad coverage.
