Re: SMSPlus for the Atari falcon

I haven't tested your port, but I ported SMS+ myself about a decade ago, and it does 50FPS on the CT60 (25MHz bus) using 5bpp C2P. It think it drops to 25FPS in TC. I remember playing SMS Shinobi on your port! I do like these SDL port - of course they require a powerful Atari or an emulator, but it...

Re: GEM-Write, GEM-Graph, GEM-Paint

Re: What is the latest Papyrus version?

The information about FireBee version is taken from http://www.atariuptodate.de/en/266/papyrus but now as I'm reading it again, perhaps the "beta" word refers to FireTOS version. ;) If you compare it to other FireBee tested/compatible apps, you will see the "beta" a lot. It refe...

Re: Read about the Atari company history

If C-Lab became Emagic then this makes sense that Apple now own the patents to the Atari Falcon 030. This must be true if C-Lab purchased the rights from Atari for the Falcon. According to history Apple bought everything from Emagic and I have not found yet anywhere that states that it was made und...

Re: We redesign the STE

Yes, DOS word processors were horrible with their keyboard shortcuts. But many companies were highly critical of GUI and thus favored the DOS PC over the ST or Amiga. There were several companies in Germany who not only modified the ST to be more industrial ready, but also made sure to hide GEM and ...

Re: We redesign the STE

An earlier release date and the discontinuation of the ST would've been crucial to get enough market share. I'd ditch the enhanced joystick ports and move the standard two to a more accessible position. One problem I had with my STE was that the "E" part was never visible to me besides the...

Re: Face Value Guide

Did you try the faceVALUE sample programs?

FV is quite simple to use if you have experience with a RCS editor and GFA-Basic. I used it for most of my programs and some of them are very basic - take the input from an edit object, do some calculation, output the result to another text field.
