Re: Digital Pen/Brush Mouse for Atari ST/STE/TT/Falcon

Re: 2 joysticks for 2 player games

After some trial and error on TOS104UK: If you boot it, it will automount the HD image but not the GemDOS. Go to options. It will not give you the option to install drives (greyed out). You have to highlight (click one time on) your HD drive (in my case C). Go to options. Go to options. "Instal...

Re: 2 joysticks for 2 player games

Thanks to everyone for the help and suggestions. EmuTOS works fine for me so far so I guess I'll stick with that. But in order to verify/falsify this issue, I checked out various TOS versions. TOS104UK, TOS104US, TOS104DE, TOS106US, TOS106DE,TOS162US,TOS162DE: HDimage from Hatari homepage detected a...

Re: 2 joysticks for 2 player games

@galax: thanks for the info. We checked out all the three emulators. Btw: SainT's last update was in 2013 when it added retro monitor emulation. @eero tamminen: Thanks to you as well (and thanks a lot for Hatari ;-) ). Hatari is great for two player games and it did recognize every gamepad I plugged...

2 joysticks for 2 player games

Hi, first of all a big thank you to the creator of SainT for all the work that went into SainT. I've been using it on and off for years. Keep up the good work.:-D Now to my question: Recently me and a buddy met for a retro gaming evening. So we were just about to start a 2 player session of Gauntlet...

Re: monitor/CRT emulation

Thanks a lot for the quick answer and again thank you and the rest of the team for keeping hatari alive and advancing it. There are not many good Atari ST (and Falcon) emulators left. After understanding the problem a bit better,I started digging a bit. What I found gives me at least a little hope: ...

monitor/CRT emulation

Hi, I just completed a playthrough of my first game using Hatari (Baal). I loved the whole experience. Hatari is a great piece of software. Lots of thank yous to the creators for their work. I am no programmer, so go easy on me if the following question sounds a bit naive to you: When I was playing ...

Hatari and pasti

Hi, a few months ago there was some promising development in reverse engineering the pasti format. There was even a discussion of eventually incorporating it into hatari. Well, ijor isn't around very much anymore/is reluctant in open-sourcing it. Yet still, most people dump in pasti format. So the r...

Hey, forum's back online!!! Great. As far as I see we didn't lose anything in this thread... Let's go on with even more dedication. Ok, after some time trying, I was able to revive my old HDD and dumped one of the disks via verbose mode as far as Pasti would read it (on track 79 it breaks operation)...

Re: Copy Protection details

I think I've already tried to use verbose mode a while ago. As far as I can remember pasti wanted me to use a hard disk.
Since it's been a few months ago and my memory of this is not so fresh, I'll try again this week.

Sounds great. Well, I still have the 2 packs sitting on a shelf. The problem is that they are not mine but borrowed from 2 childhood friends... So I would have to do the dumping.

Re: PASTI/STX File Format

Congrats. Maybe this will spark more interest in preservation using pasti in the Linux community (as I understand, Hatari is the only/best Atari St emulator on Linux which is still in development and which is also occasionally included in distros, right?). Anyways, keep up the good work.
