Re: Mega ST 4 and Satandisk - not all partitions visible.

I do not have a Satandisk and my experience was with a CF not SD, that had this behavior. On my Falcon, it worked once or twice and then the partitions are gone. I re partition on my Falcon, and it works again for 1-2 times. However, if I partition it on my Windoze and use it on my Windoze, it is al...

Re: EasyMint shell?

Glad you got it working.

You only need the etc/passwd file if you want to open bash from the TOSWIN (it just looks to see which shell you are using").
You can also manually run bash by double clicking it, and this method you do not need the passwd file.

Re: Corrupt Newdesk.inf help

I think you can only set up to 640x480 using the standard desktop resolution.
For that 800x600 you probably have a program in Auto that sets it.
unless you have some other video hardware not mentioned.

Re: EasyMint shell?

TosWin2 console is just blank. Sorry but what do you expect to see from the console when you open it ? I supposed you set it to open on startup ? If you did and want to see something coming of it while booting, go get my Synctime tool and make Synctime start on startup, it will display you something.

Re: Hades - problem with Internet card

manual way is same as using a fixed ip address.
by using dhcp, the dhcp server can potentially give a different ip address every time.

if this has been working on your TT and Falcon, then it should not be any different and should work.

Re: Hades - problem with Internet card

no dhcp server (your router?) replied to the dhcp client (your hades).
I suppose you should try a fixed ip address first.

IMHO Atari squeeezed a cut-down lame VDI into the ROM.
The lame VDI can only load one device - the screen and nothing else.

Ok, good luck.
Let's us know the results but my guess is that chances are slim.
May be the older drivers will work.

Re: CTPCI and Adaptec SCSI PCI card

Have not heard of this card on a CTPCI before nor any drivers for it. But then I have been in and out of Atari over the years, so may have missed any posting of it. May be there is a development beta version (like almost everything else of CT60) I do have an Adaptec SCSI card somewhere in my man cave.

Re: CTPCI-IDE-Problem

Check your IRQ wire again.
IIRC, my falcon also hang when I did not have that wire on.
I did not know I have to solder that wire until Czuba told me so. :roll:

Most of the games conversion are done hastily to catch the wave of the game being good at on other platforms.

Re: There are tons of BEST of threads, how about the WORST ST games?

let it be clear that making a game better via some magical re-coding just makes it better than before it got that magic. It still does not mean that it gets pulled out of the shitty games bucket.

No, some people missed it completely by reading what they want to read.
I did not write ALL games.... I wrote a game.
I don't think anyone can improve ALL bad ST games even if that person has several lifetime.

My guess is someone like Pp can improve a game by giving it stereo music and better sound, smoother game play etc making the game better overall.

And fun is the idea, like you said, there are enough threads for best or underappreciated games. There are probably "worst games" threads too. Some bad games (IMO): - Thai Boxing - Lands of Havoc (yet by Steve Bak) - Super Tennis - Missions en Rafale -Roadwars True to say it really depend...

Truly depends on one's taste.
