I don't have HDDriver... was struggling to justify the cost when I was setting up my Falcon so I use Cecile. Maybe it's time to drop some cash on it.

Re: NetUSBee USB storage driver download

I've not had any luck getting this to work so far... I put NETUSBEE.PRG, STORAGE.PRG and USB.PRG into AUTO, checked the order is correct, and when I boot to TOS (not FreeMiNT) I can see "ISP116x Root Hub" when I run USB Utility. If I choose to install devices I get two new drives show up, ...

Re: Going into demo creation in 2017?

68 Assembly is pretty easy to pick up (at least in comparison to other assembly languages). I used the DHS demo system to create Trionoids, for demo scene management it's spot on!

Re: STE with no signs of life

Yeah I've gotten used to staring at those damned diagrams having made up mono cable and now the RGB one twice, but I'd not realised about pin 3. I checked it and couldn't find anything obvious, but snipped it off the connector to be on the safe side since I'm not going to use it anyway. I still had ...

Re: STE with no signs of life

Ok, feeling stupid now. I disconnected my monitor lead, and the thing probably boots (at least the floppy drive kicks in and does as it should). I recall having this issue before with my cable the first time before giving it a good jiggle. Anyone know what the actual cause is? I assume it's either a...

STE with no signs of life

Ok, so recently my STE had been missing the green channel completely. I thought this was my DIY RGB cable, so I ripped it apart and re-soldered it (I actually meant to test it first, but it was such a poor job the ripping apart happened as I disconnected it... those 13 pin DIN plugs are tricky to so...

Re: Surviving STs

[quote="Atari030"]I just gave away my classic Mac, to a mate. We just moved and I found a couple more A500's I didn't know I had. They are as prolific as rabbits. I guess cause no one wants them. :-)

I've been after one... will take one off your hands if you've run out of space now ;)

Re: Very first computer

Atari 800 (first one in my bedroom at any rate). First computer that was "mine" was an SX25 with 4MB of RAM and an 80MB HDD. I remember that being HUGE after using the Supradrive on the ST.

Uhhh, it got completely stalled because I started trying to build my own 68k computer on a breadboard! I am planning to pull my thumb out though, so hopefully it'll see some progress in the next month or two.

I've been meaning to post about this for ages, but I've started working on a platformer using AGT. Stalled a little recently but will try and get back into it over the next couple of weeks. It's going to be called Dave the Dragon :) Here's an out of date screenshot, might post a quick test build at ...

Re: Trionoids - Columns Clone for the Falcon - RELEASED!

Nice one, I'll have a play sometime. What's this line for?

move.w #$FFFE,$ffff9202 ;Select group 4 of Joypad A

Seems a little odd to write some values there before reading, what's in those lower bits?

Re: Trionoids - Columns Clone for the Falcon - RELEASED!

I just had the chance to test Trionoids. For the good parts, I really liked the graphics and the motion. On the bad part I'd say I'd prefer a different control scheme. So think about it for the next game. Jagpad support would also be nice. In short, I really liked it even though the control scheme ...

Re: Hatari 2.0.0 has been released

I'm finding 2.0 to be noticeably slower (official windows binary)... anyone else seen that? Got it configured as an STE, and even mouse movement in GEM isn't as smooth as it was with 1.9.

Re: uip-tool

Not enough memory then. Ah nuts. This is a 1MB machine. For some reason I figured that was a go! Time to source an upgrade methinks! LMK if you need RAM, I have boxes full of 1mb simms somewhere. That'd be great if you do have them! Can drive/ride to pick them up. How much would you want for some?
