Re: FlashFloppy Gotek firmware updated to v0.9.3a

Is a vanilla Gotek usable in a 1040STE (1.62 TOS) or does it need to be flashed with a custom FW?


Yes it will but it's better to flash the gotek with hxc or flash floppy firmware as it makes life a lot easier to load disk images.

Re: HxC Slim mount for Atari ST

This is a great idea. Too bad I sold my HxC Slim just 2 weeks ago because I had no reasonable way to mount it in my STE. Would a version without Atari producting faceplate be possible? In such a case the HxC Slim could be fitted to non-Atari cases. Absolutely, it's already in the works, I'm just fi...

Looking smooth :D

What are those glitchy horizontal lines that appear every now and again, will they be cleaned from the final release?

Thanks for this, I have a couple of issues that I will scan eventually, be good if others could look in their collections and see what they have too.

Also is there a reason why the gameplay structure doesn't follow the qualify then race format of the arcade?

Re: The Atari ST (and others) and the Creative People

From the point of view of the producer it just comes down to money and personal standards. Personally if I didn't have the money to produce something in a second language that contained a good translation then I wouldn't do it for fear of poor feedback. And from the point of view of the consumer if ...
