Re: Atari Stacy 4 (UK based)

At the moment there is a Stacy offered on Ebay. Take look there for price indication. See https://www.ebay.nl/itm/192460790051?ul_noapp=true Personally I find the "black spot" very negative because I've has same experience with a laptop and that also started very small but within a few mon...

Re: The last MIST

Here's hoping the community will still continue to exist and not slowly fade into nothingness... I wonder if the joystick ports can be re-purposed as digital I/O lines? If you combine two joystick ports, you might have enough I/O lines to implement a printer port. I do remember that on my Atari 400...

Re: Atari800MacX

I use Appdelete which normally finds all files pertaining to a deleted program. I don't think the problem is caused by High Sierra since it worked fine until the moment that I had the unfortunate idea of checking the "fullscreen" box.

Atari800MacX

I use this emulator but since a short while it always opens in fullscreen mode and Preferences (Cmd-,) does not work. So I have no way to get back to windowed. Already tried to contact the developer but got no response. Deleted the app and what I could find in related files and reinstalled. But this...

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

I didn't realize that the Browser was included within the HCXfloppyemulator.

So all that is needed is having everything going thru their browser and place the result on the USB-stick. Nice way to do it. I suppose that it is best to choose a disk size that best resembles the amount of content.

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

Problem is that I use a Mac. And using VMS/Fusion/Parallels makes things extra complex.

I have seen that HXCfloppyemulator does make images but hen each program becomes a rather very large image. At least with .HFE which is the only one I checked.

Discovered there is also a Mac version.

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

Why use only 1.44MB images when you can use 2.5MB (!!!) images on an unmodified ST with an SD HxC or Gotek HxC ? :wink: If I understand correctly I can copy ST software to the USB-stick without modification to the ST software. So what is the importance of image-size. Isn't that a Gotek internal aff...

First it's not an SD-card it is a USB stick. I thought you could be maybe not.


Do I interpret this correctly if I conclude then that HxCFloppyEmulator is not needed?

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

Clouds are clearing hope (hope I understand all correct). I guess Gotek (with HXC) is for me the way to go since I find Ultrasatan way too expensive (2.5 the price of Gotek). I still wonder on the procedure. Do I copy Atari .prg/.tos/.... simply straight 1:1 to the SD-card and does HXC then make (wh...

Re: Writing Atari ST programs onto floppies with PC

I would have chosen that path when I used a real PC. However I am using a virtual PC on a Mac and that has no serial ports.

Re: Writing Atari ST programs onto floppies with PC

All solutions above only work with a floppy drive within the PC and not with one connected thru USB. Are there any solutions when the drive is connected thru USB?

Re: Gotek, HXC and more

If I go for the cheapest solution (Gotek) do I understand the working correctly as follows: On the SD card I can place numerous (100+) content op floppy disk. Can I then produce an overview of all that is on the SD or do I first select a correct SD and then select a program within that "virtual...

Re: Hatari, opening .ST

Indeed, then it works. Leads to my next question:

How do I use .ST's on a real Atari using disk (or equivalent)? I guess I have to "unimage" it but how to do that?

Re: Hatari, opening .ST

At the moment I have installed 2.06 in Hatari but I can select a different one.

I've tried about 10 different .ST's and all return the same error. Also I see no way to "oen with ...." within Hatari.

Hatari, opening .ST

If I double-click on a .ST file then I get the message (translated) ".. file can only be viewed or printed ... I thought .ST were program images.

How do I start these?

I am looking for a way to easily transfer files from my Mac (or PC) to Atari st. I understand that SD cards are the simplest way. However I see several solutions and the difference is not clear to me. Hope that someone can give answer to this question. I found Gotek, Hxc and Lothar's Floppy disk Emu...
