Re: What hapened to atariforge? dev-docs moved.

Im sure Lonny will appreciate your info on all orphan files that aren't linked to from any of the categories. This one (ataripf.zip) looks to be something that should go under 3rd party docs. Why do you think it's orphaned? You see, this is the problem with your copy - you've only copied what wget ...

Re: Enchanted Land parallax scroll

I suspect a lot of precalculation. That would work fine with the intro but not in the game where the playfield is a lot bigger.

Now stop posting nonsense, I have verified that wget produces a good copy of the site, counted all the links, and added a search script (which, server side, cannot be gotten through wget).

Ah, so you weren't commenting on there being any missing files at all (they're all there), but that the server side search functionality isn't exactly the same.

You should add "incomplete" to the header, as you're missing quite some files there.

Re: Enchanted Land parallax scroll

I had a look at the intro now, and from what I can see only about 1/3 of the screen is parallax scolling. And the background looks like 2 bitplanes only. I believe they're syncscrolling the screen and redrawing the background. I'm not very familiar with syncscrolling - can you sync-scroll only parts...

Re: ST emulators on Milan

Well, the question is what exactly would you run then? Obviously not ST games/demos so that leaves only CPU-agnostic software (perhaps already targeting fast 030/040/060) and that I can already run on my Falcon so I don't need to code it. ;) You could run a large number of the Falcon/HD-fixed games...

Re: BAD DMA - Myth or fact ?

Basically you're compensating for a device that does not really work in the STE design by replacing another part with a part that the STE isn't designed for :) That's really not a fix, but a workaround. But if it works, then this does not matter. The most important thing is that it works. I have a 1...

Re: Milan maximum RAM

The Milan can use SIMMs up to 128Mb size (*). However, not all SIMMs works. Maybe the Milan use the four PD ("Presence detect") pins to determine RAM size? These are not implemented on all SIMMs. I remember having a TT-RAM-card in my TT where I would have to manually add jumpers to these p...

We just moved and I found a couple more A500's I didn't know I had. They are as prolific as rabbits. I guess cause no one wants them. :-) A500 prices has skyrocketed lately, most likely due to the arrival of the Vampire 500. Much like what happened with the A600 a couple of years ago.

Re: What is fvdi for?

fVDI is the screen driver for hardware that's not compatible with a real ST/Falcon/TT.

NVDI provides both screen drivers (unused when running on unsupported hardware) and fonts/printer drivers.

Re: Atari MSTE - NVDI 4 or 5?

NVDI doesn't output anything to screen on a Mach32 or 64 graphics card. All output is handled by NovaVDI. Do you have 2Mb VRAM-card or a 1Mb DRAM-card? There's a big difference in speed between those. Frank's Mach32 is a 2Mb VRAM-card which is the fastest one. These used to be sold as "SuperNov...
