Re: No Sound on Atari SC1224 color Monitor but very high pitch sound and ugly smell

I googled "how to discharge tube" and there is plenty of info on how to do it. Do you really have to, the answer is NO but as nobody likes to be zapped it is recommendable. The low power supply is more dangerous. A nice read is this: https://lowendmac.com/2007/the-truth-about-crts-and-shoc...

Re: INTERNATIONAL KARATE vs IK+: WHICH IS BEST?

I really like IK on the 8-bits, on the 16 bits not so much. IK+ rules them all though.

Re: R-TYPE DELUXE

I wonder why it hasn't been mentioned here yet, but if my memory serves me well I read a couple of days ago (somewhere on facebook) that this version uses the same adress space as the HD driver (don't know if all or just a specific HD driver). I guess that's why many of you have problems.

Re: Missing a few demos

Ok that was fun, especially the comments for the TBC products.
I think I can ask / direct someone here for number 54691 (how the hell did that get out into the wild? I always thought it was kept safe :) ) and maybe he still has a right copy of 13382 and 29332 in his archive.

Re: Giana Sisters

Super Stario land is absolutely not bad, but apart from scrolling i don't really think there's any improvement over Giana siters that to me is a bit more than simply a mario clone. Maybe it's nostalgia but Giana looks and feels much better than any of the mario games i have played.

Seeing the enthousiasm for a Pacmania remake I would think there would be more action on this topic. As a game I would prefer the standard Giana sisters over whatever souped up and improved version of pacmania. Anyhow I think an improved Giana would rock and I don't mean to say that an improved vers...

Re: How do I get an audio only signal from my STFM?

I would go for this solution. ofcourse if you don't want the stereo you can leave that out and connect everything straight to the audio out. To me thats a better and easier solution than breaking cables or even the monitor to get a signal out of it. http://rdemming.home.xs4all.nl/Atari/index.htm and...

I think Thalion / Eclipse games like leavin terramis, lethal excess, wings of death detect extra ram.. not sure if they really use it, or use all of the extra ram.

Re: Most impressive ST demo ever?

There are a lot of demo's ( too many to mention) that impressed me because of the coding skills, gfx and/or msx. Often the appreciation is based on knowing the limitations of the machine and seeing coders and artist pushing the machine to or over its limits. However Grotesque by Omega is to me very ...

Re: A small curiosity of 520ST music :)

A bit off topic and maybe a stupid question, but since people mentioned sampling the YM to use in other proggies I thought I had to ask.
Isn't it possible to create (if it doesn't exist already) a tracker that combines the YM with multi channel DMA sound on STE/TT/Falcon?

Re: HOW DO I MOD MY 1040 STfm For 3 Channel Output?

Here you can find a way to do the stereo "upgrade". It should be easy enough to mod it to a 3 seperate channels circuit or make it switch between normal, stereo and 3 channel .

Since the quality of games and any software really depends on the skills and talents of the programmers and artists , they don't really make a good benchmark to define wich hardware is better.
