Re: [Project] Scroll Texts

I use MSA Converter to get at each disk's contents which I can "Read" which saves each file to a temporary directory which I can access with STEEm SSE. I've then often got to decompact the menu PRG and I've found most success with Synergy Giga 2.1 although I've tried a few including Mega a...

Wait, you don't mean you transcribe the text off the screen do you? If so... wow, now that's gotta hurt! ;D I can describe what I do if that helps. It should be a lot easier, if less musical!

Well crap. Now I find out that this has already been done. More than 10 years ago even. http://d-bug.mooo.com/dbugforums/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1229809442 Well that's a blow.

Updated link- http://flashtro.com/alien-world-amiga-atari-st/. Sadly the attachment seems to have disappeared since the site had an 'upgrade' (which isn't much of an improvement if you ask me when compared it to how it used to look). Maybe you still have it, musashi? :contract:

Thanks for the update Brume. Sounds like I really must check out this Legendary site that's currently all the rage...

Re: My wife does not understand me ...

Does the Satan work as a drive itself? I thought it just held disk images but I don't know much about it TBH.
My terrible translation was attempting to make up the German for "Fortnight kid", as in the uber-popular (modern) video game. Again, my apologies for doing that to your language! ;)

Re: Trying to find the name of an adventure game

Yeah, a 720kb disk is just standard DOS DD formatted, which an ST can read. That was one of their selling points back in the day. To the "Disk Imager Supreme", we can't all be that good at it! ;) Nah, I'm not sure if it's the drive I'm using. It possibly needs cleaning? I need to do some m...

Re: Trying to find the name of an adventure game

easiest way is get an older PC/laptop that has a floppy drive, then write the disk image to a floppy. USB floppy drives won't work though, it needs to be a PC with a proper floppy drive.

Why do I think this cover-art has been stolen somewhere? Did Mandarin use it somewhere else, for a more productive progy or something?

Re: Stonish.net - Atari ST Menu disks (Euroswap, FOFT, SFX...)

Hi again Brume. I need your expert advice. Is it worth running a disk checker on the disks I have that have bad sectors and which progy do you recommend if so? I've found one on a disk but is there one in particular that is trusted to work? Don't want to completely lose anything of course. Thanks!
