Wow, this sounds like something that should be reported to the author for sure.


I did and spent a lot of time testing for him.

I have a SCSI2SD for my TT, the best driver is HD DRIVER 9.10. Mine would get file corruption on any newer version. 9.10 is also confirmed as working on their wiki.

Re: Pls help make my desktop look good

I also have a TT machine, with a VME et4000 graphics card. It runs in 256 colours too but looks shockingly better.

This is Xaaes/Thing, applied with Zview: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6vqg ... TZnT1lXUGc

How can this be explained? Both are 256 colours.

Re: Pls help make my desktop look good

Ok thx. I don't know how to make a pal file even though you make it sound easy, so I will experiment with different backgrounds. Still, the windframes look like arse. I just don't understand why the Falcon can't display all 256 colours? Why is there a need for palettes.

Pls help make my desktop look good

Hi guys, My Falcons desktop looks like vomit and I was hoping someone can help. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6vqgf6MYPD1emE2Y1ctMUthUFk I have it at 800x600 256 colours, running Myaes and Teradesk. The desktop background looks beautiful in 256 colours on my PC but looks trash on the Falcon. Ev...

Re: How to convert modern file formats to Atari 256 colour IMG?

I made a BMP2XIMG tool for making falcon 256 color background, it's a tool for windows or that can also run on the falcon itself: http://onorisoft.free.fr/atari/falcon.htm (at the bottom of the page) The GEM palette is included to make your wallpaper correct and not screwing up the GEM base color T...

Just IMG I think. Wow Pixart doesn't like memory protection, crashes a lot :) "Memory protection" indicates that you're using MiNT, so why use Thing! backgrounds? Both MyAES and XaAES are capable of displaying truecolour backgrounds, no need to limit yourself to 2567-colour IMGs. Ok thx f...

Re: How to convert modern file formats to Atari 256 colour IMG?

I followed that link and tried converting a wallpaper to the degas elite and neo formats, but THING could not display them. Also Xnview doesn't seem to export any atari formats anymore? From what I can see.

You CAN browse modern sites on an Atari :)

I've asked this question before but it usually just ends up with SSL/speed/etc roadblocks. I was just playing around on my EasyMint installation and found that the text based Lynx browser was installed already. I typed 'lynx' into the shell and bam, I get a really fast loading web browser!

Re: FreeMiNT with CT60e, wget keeps hanging?

I think its just the netusbee drivers being a little flakey. I just tried wget on my TT to download an rpm and it hung at 93%, then I tried again and it worked the second time.

Re: EasyMint shell?

Also, every time xaaes loads it does the whole load_img depack vr_transform OK! stuff. Surely it should only have to do that once? Perhaps each time you change colour depth or something. if you do not want this to happen, you can stop it. Also included in the probe house guide. Hey wongck, I've bee...
