Re: VARIOUS ATARI STE/STFM/STF SYSTEMS, SPARE PARTS AND UPGRADES

I really should replace the case and keyboard for my 1040 STE. Money is a bit tight at the moment though, but get back to me if you have any of the items and then we can see ..

Re: Fullscreen GUI missing

If anyone else is having this problem; I actually found a solution to it. If I use "Windowed Borderless Mode" the GUI returns (see attached picture), at least in 3.9.4. Also this doesn't seem to affect my ability to record with Action, so this worked for me...

Re: Quickstart guide for making Pasti-images

If you want to actually image the ST disk directly on the PC, no, Pasti doesn't work like that. The imaging tool works only on the ST. But you don't need a PC with a FDC, you can use an USB floppy for the purpose of accessing the transfer disk. Otherwise, if you have some kind of ST hard disk emula...

Re: Quickstart guide for making Pasti-images

I'm not sure what you mean. PastiTools precisely creates and writes to an image file on the PC. PastiTools reads from the transfer disk. The data on the transfer disk is written at the ST. What exactly you want to do? Is it possible to have the image file saved onto the PCs hard-drive instead of to...

Re: Quickstart guide for making Pasti-images

A bit of a necro post this, but since the PASTI software is still relevant, I thought what the hell :). Is there a way to have PastiTools.exe write to an image file on the PC HD instead of to a floppy transfer disk?

Ok, I know its a PC app, but I got the impression that you needed two floppy drives on your PC to get this to work, according to the text file. A bit confusing that text file, but still doubtful it will work since the FAT probably wont be readable :(

STTOPC.rarallright here you go Had a closer look at the text file, don't think this will work. It copies files it seems and since the FAT on the disk is probably not in good shape, I doubt this will work. Also seems to require two floppy drives... oh well, still worth a look, thanks for finding the...

Re: Disk Repair Tools ST

Thanks Charles! I included Diskedit in my attempts. But no luck so far, the disc seems unreadable. Both the boot sector and FAT seems screwed beyond repair. I have managed to make an PASTI image of it without any read errors, but of course the image isn't possible to open either. Almost all my other...

Yeah, I saw that he closed his homepage and moved to Sourceforge. But I though he would still hang around here. Maybe we should add a sticky message to the STEEM support section about this? Thanks for the info. Steven Seagal has moved away from the forum and is "living" on SourceForge now:...

Re: Incorrect screen size in Shadow of the Beast

The crisp setting is indeed set, but not quite sure why that should cause this. But I am no expert :). I just realised that my 3.7.3 version is DirectDraw and as I said there it works like its supposed to. The other versions are using D3D ... and D3D is driving me bonkers right now!
