Re: The Falcon's confusing history

Atari computers were purloined for industry (I got my TT from a knitting factory, where it ran an industrial machine), in the automotive industry they ran the show. There was special ST in Germany in industrial case special for CNC and other purposes! (I always forget model name... :/) Industrial S...

Re: There are tons of BEST of threads, how about the WORST ST games?

- Yolanda (can't believe it was made by Steve Bak)

- Thunder Cats
Pretty graphics, but no level design.

Re: Atari Legend releases a lost game : Le Siecle des Lumieres (our first release since a loooong time)

Great work!

I do feel sorry for the developers though - they spent weeks on this game and it didn't even sell 100 copies? :(

Re: TT030 clone - is it possible ?

I guess if the Falcon 040 Microbox had ever been released, that would have been the 'more serious work computer'? I do love my TT030 though, it's nice, just wish it'd had more graphic modes. It would've made the TT obsolete - better graphics, more expansion slots, faster CPU. Atari pre-announced th...

Re: Atari Portable

Out of interest for the cart port for cubase use -- is this mostly for the dongle, or also for additional MIDI ports etc? Both actually - many music programs came with a ROM port dongle, but it was used for all kind of extensions as well, e.g. the Midex: http://stcarchiv.de/tos1990/11/midex Other p...

Re: Atari Portable

Wolfgang Foerster's (Suska) implementation of the ST/E chipset should be pretty much complete. For MIDI apps, you'd absolutely need the cartridge slot. Maybe call it the STE Pad, to give it a nice marketing spin (the ST tablet is here!) although I doubt that the special TOS version of the original S...

Yes, but by 16/32 Systems. They also released all the other developed games. IIRC, 16/32 released them after Atari had given up the Falcon.

I'd like to read something about the other two members of the Falcon family, the Microbox and the Falcon 040. Did Atari design two different computers?

What was really sad about the extended joystick ports on the STE, was that noone really bothered with it. If they had, we could have really great controllers today, such as racing wheels and whatnot.

Re: Adding STE advanced port, jagpad support for games

I only use the grey Jagpad on my Falcon. Many people also own Jagpads with rotary controller. Anything else would require an adapter.
