Re: Acorn Archimedes

The true audio capabilities of the Archimedes for you to listen to, with unfiltered sound and an audiophile quality Burr Brown OPA replacing the standard quality IC used by Acorn :

Is it the 2.5 version (with sound enhancement, from 1997 ?)
Reading the disk names, it must be the very 1st version.

Have you got a way I could send you the latest, enhanced version ?

Re: Atari and Amiga dev coming from modern systems

I have been itching to use it and even started reading the Peter Cockerell book you mentioned. However,...

Re: Atari and Amiga dev coming from modern systems

Oh well I am again going to talk about the Archie. Systems pre RISC PC.(So, that's ARM2, ARM3, ARM250 based machines). They all have either RISC OS 2 or RISC OS 3. Switch an Archie on, it works straight out of the box. No fancy little strange pieces of code to add, and that not everybody will have o...

BIN purchase on Ebay, what is that exactly

Hi all.

Saw this, saw the price, brain had a sudden 'purchase DMA'.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162639957643

Now I wonder how good it is ... I think it is but well I do not own a TT yet ...
Any idea ?

I bought the job lot (5 units).
If anyone wants one, just let me know.

Xavier.

Re: Acorn Archimedes

Acorn was never interested by distribution outside the UK, except maybe in New Zealand or Australia, and it seems even over there, if it was a small success, in a way it is thanks to the CEOs of the companies importing and promoting the machines there. RISC OS and the accompanying RISC OS documentat...

Re: The Falcon's confusing history

So on Archi you have 8bit chunk mode but you can not choose colors? It is like 8bit pallet... (half of ST color palete)? You have only 16 entries so the other 240 colours are derivated from your freely selectable 16 base colours. Still, it is possible to have some interesting 256 colour palettes. h...

Re: AMIGA: MIST vs Pi3 vs Vampire/real Amiga (4000?)

I agree.
I have so many things to tell you about my beloved Archimedes, but I refrain from doing that on an Atari forum, as I am a gentleman.
(From the Scottish definition : 'a gentleman is a man who knows how to play the bagpipe, but who refrains from doing so').

Re: The Falcon's confusing history

I really thought the Falcon had a 256 colour mode, chunky ... exactly like the Archie, but with a true freedom for selecting them (unlike the Archie). In reality this mode is planar ? What the heck they had in mind ? Ok I have just checked : chunky is only for truecolour modes. Ootch, that's a lot o...

@penguin great infos! Very pleasing to see ST in such variaty of applications. Regarding RISC: only RISC like CPU in Atari product was Tom and Jerry in Jaguar. Transputers (ABAQ and ATW) was... Transputers :) OK so you mean they never thought of using a MIPS chip for example, or an Intel RISC chip ...
