Been told I need more memory for the CF card to run the Work bench and WHD load ? Not sure how my ST feels being sa...

Re: any one use both Atari and Amiga

I'm Nr Edinburgh :) I seen an A600 local and decided to buy it up, I read as much as it can take a direct CF card inside which will run all the games and demos i need. also to upgrade the memory is just a plug in card. Other than this I know very little. So Quite looking forward to learning about th...

best options for a mouse ST / STe

I have been fair enjoying the fun of reliving my youth playing around on my Atari. To be honest I thought Id have given up after playing a few games and watching demo's I'm still glued to it and enjoying it. I need a mouse and I have several USB and the older PS2 type around. Whats the best solution...

Guess the Demo from the disc Picture

While going over old discs I came across this in my collection. The disc has failed and it will not read and makes bad noises in the floppy drive now presumed dead :( Or maybe its not :) The disc was distributed in England and was a PD title, I recall this being a demo I liked or at least every time...

Re: Advice on disc emulator and recomendations

Note that .ST is only supported read-only. You will have to go to .HFE if you also want to write to your emulated floppy disks. Wrong... update the firmware you will be able to read/write to ST files: http://torlus.com/floppy/forum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=3147 Now running the latest version so far...

Re: Advice on disc emulator and recomendations

Okay, I dint know that, I found a program that easily and very quickly converts from MSA to ST
What is recommended to convert either to HFE?

Thank you.

Oh I didn't realise that might not work out so great :(

Help to make 13 pin din to VGA

Okay so I'm using a very old CRT display as a monitor simply using the RF output. Not only is this taking up much room but I already have a VGA monitor sitting next to it which I might as well try and use. I have a VGA TO VGA cable which I will happily cut one end off and solder up a 13 pin din plug...

Re: Advice on disc emulator and recomendations

The Gotek unit arrived running the HxC firmware and it works very well indeed.
Simply add a folder on a usb drive in the format .ST and no more discs. I'm super impressed with this and will have some fun
playing around with this tonight.
