Re: My 1040 STF works, but doesn't?

There is a strong probability that the ST power supply is almost dead as this think doesn’t age well. An old power supply, especially when not used for a long time could work once and then die suddenly after. When you open your ST, check the capacitors if they are not leaking and check the voltage a...

Re: Hatari 2.1.0 has been released

I am very interested in multi midi output for Hatari.
I don’t have the skills to help in the development but I can help in testing as I am using Hatari on different platforms (Linux X86, ARM, OSX) and have a bunch of midi expanders to test in real usage situations.

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

If you reach Ubuntu login prompt after boot, it means that Aranym crashed at startup. I guess that you are trying to boot on your .msa image file, and that you floppy image is auto booting something that crash Aranym.(GDOS for example) Try to open your msa image without booting it (open it with Aran...

Hi Wongck, It reminds me some tests I did on the Firebee where the transfer speed was very variable depending on the software used and conditions. Mint ftp was 135% faster if you download to /ram instead of HDD, and litchi was the fastest of all thanks to his buffering. http://www.atari-forum.com/vi...

Re: NEW and UNUSED ATARI 1040 STE for SALE

Well, I bought a completely new Falcon ( NOS from France, 4 MB no HD, original box, never used) for 250€ 2 years ago. So you have the answer.
150€ is a good price though for your STE as it worths around 50€ used.
Good luck to sell a STE at that price !

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

HI, Are you using wifi with the Pi3 onboard wifi or with an external dongle? BeePi doesn't have every chipset for wifi installed. If the boot hangs on, it's because network is not setup correctly. Normally after a few minutes it will boot, but this is not a normal feature, it's a bug. I have publish...

Re: CT60e and 68060 - do I need a cooling fan?

Yes it could work with a simple heatsink, depending of the capacity of your heatsink, the version of your 68060 (the latest doesn't heat so much) and the frequency you want to drive your CT60e. In other words, if you want to run above 60 MHz, a fan is more than recommended. To attached it, you can u...

Re: Gemulator and disk images

If you have properly installed Driver.sys on the First partition of your disk image, then I guess that there is a setup in Gemulator to boot on this disk image instead of the GEMDOS folder.
Sorry I can't help more, the Gemulator version I used was the DOS one, and it was 20 years ago :-/

Re: Atari on home network

You have several options. - Setup a SAMBA or NFS server on your TT (use sparemint packages) and share your drives - set your PC as NFS server, and install mint NFS client on your TT (samba client works in read only with recent servers). Should work also with Magic if you use MagicNet - setup your TT...

Re: NVDI 5 - missing black/grey on 16M colours printout

Is your printer a DJ 1200 or a more recent model? Try a different Driver. Some are using RLE compression, other different flavor of PCL and it is not always working well with new printer or similar model. Generally I have reasonable results with DJ550C NVDI Driver when printing on my Laserjet color,...

Re: BeeKey Atari on a key and now BeePi

Welcome and thank you for testing Beekey.
USB2 pendrive are vers slow, explaining the long time to create the persistence but also to copy all the files which are modified, especially the disk images. Second boot should be faster.
USB3 pen drive are a better solution for a constant use.
