Re: Insert ST files into .ST or HDD disc image (Linux)

Hatari comes with a handy zip2st tool. It creates an .st disk image from ZIP file contents with mtools and dd. Great thing :9 And you can use the supplied hmsa afterwards to make a .msa file out of it. Apologies for the thread revival but thanks for that! I was trying to work out how to play Giana ...

Re: VCF East 2019

For the 520ST I'd suggest the grusel demo as it's well done, fun and in my opinion shows the progression from 8 to 16 bits. failing that or to follow the micromix 1 demo to demonstrate how demos progressed. Oherwise I'd suggest the cuddly demos except the spreadpoint demo has the more profound word ...

Re: Atari ST/Falcon Shareware CDs

It's slow, clunky, a pain to navigate and you probably all know about it but http://www.archive.org has a few ST CD's (including the 'no fragments' collection) as well as older PC and Amiga CD's (including the 4 disc 'Amiga mod archive' that I struggled to find elsewhere). Aside from a link for the ...

Re: Looking for GoGo Dancer Demo

There was also a demo with a blue silhouette of a woman dancing. Having had a quick look it was (as I remembered) on the delerious demo by the french alliance ('dancing demo' by the overlanders) - I later found out they'd ripped the animation from a strip poker game.

Re: Atari ST demos on 2 disks supporting drive B

The ST was generally a machine that could cope with one disk drive (unlike the amiga ;) ). From what I remember most two-disk megademos specified in the main menu which disk the demo was on. If I'm honest I only had a second floppy drive for a short while and while I don't recall which demos used it...

Right, I'm up to 'M' on the Atari 800 games on atarimania and nothing like that yet. If I get some time I'll carry on tomorrow.

On the plus side for me I've seen a load of Atari 8 bit games I want to give a go so I'll add some onto my retropie, er, pi.

Re: Bad Apple by Fenarinarsa (Atari STe demo) !!!!!

I think this is on more formats than lemmings was! A quick youtube trail displayed a C64 version, one for the coleco (or intelivision - I always get those two confused) and even the VCS! With obvious Atari bias I still think the STe version looks (and sounds) the best, but they are all quite a techn...

Interesting. I remember hooking my ST up to my mate's A500 for some stunt car racer action.
