Re: PageStream

I emailed them recently and got the same response pretty much. That there wasn't enough interest, and there were limitations in TOS. Mainly because the conversation came up because I couldn't seem to get Pagestream to work on my Falcon. I'm curious what limitations? Sometimes these old devs are so ...

Re: Anyone recognizes this type harddisk?

Looks sort of Mac-ish and I don't think that is Atari DMA. Looks more like SCSI connectors.

Re: PaintPro by Abacus Software, dump anyone?

Attached is the modified PlusPaint ST I patched. It won't ask for the disk anymore. It will still open the file selector, either cancel it or hit ok and then later when you go to save you can change the path. I also made a copy of the the medium resolution rsc file and renamed it such that it will r...

Re: PaintPro by Abacus Software, dump anyone?

It actually exits clean on purpose. I have followed the code backwards to see how it ends up at the Floprd() code I found. It is looking for something on the disk and if not found, it sets a flag. This flag is then checked later in the event loop when you click on stuff. If it did not find what its ...

Re: PaintPro by Abacus Software, dump anyone?

It works with Steem, I just made a screenshot I can load the same image, but clicking any of the tools on the left cause it to terminate without warming. I have looked at it in the dis-assembler. There's a call to Floprd() which is a good indication it's doing some sort of copy protection. Actual c...

Re: PaintPro by Abacus Software, dump anyone?

If I hit Ok in the file selector it does like you say, it asks about A4/A5 image size. I pick one and it seems happy until I try to select some tool, then it suddenly exits. Strange.

Re: PaintPro by Abacus Software, dump anyone?

Re: Atari Corps multi-line BBS?

I wonder who actually designed it. If you can't find one, tracing it back to the designer would be next logical step to see if schematics still exists. I hope he finds something.

Now that I know the name of it and who made it I googled even more intensely and can't find any photos either. Looks like you found one of the double-click guys. Hopefully his forum account is still linked to a valid email address.

Re: GEMBENCH 6

First rule of software writing. No one reads the manual, trust me I know. Most people just unpack an archive and double-click away on the app. So it's best to nip it in the bud as they say. One problem, and I'm being honest here, is you retain the name GemBench which implies it's GEM friendly. To ma...

Re: GEMBENCH 6

32-bit gfx has an extra (unused) byte for an alpha channel. Simple fix is if you see 32-bit mode, report it as 24-bit color space, since that's what it actually yields. ie total_colors=shl(1,24) As for the multi-tasking issues, it's basically terrible to be blunt. Allowing it to run is silly since i...

Lonny, that's it I think. DC-Port sounds awfully familiar although I remember there being 5 lines, but its been so long I could have forgotten. Or maybe they had 2 cartridges and 2 ST's hooked up someway? Dunno...been too long and I've lost too many brain cells. :) Thanks for that link. Now I'd lov...

Re: Undelete deleted files from an st diskimage

Diamond Edge has an undelete option as well and I've used it. :)

I have also used this in that past:

Make a backup of the disk image just in case before doing anything. :wink:

Re: Email address authentication broken on wiki

I had the same problem the other day. On the settings page the "authenticate" option takes you to another page saying an email was sent. It never arrived, so I clicked the "resend authentication" option and then it says basically what was noted above in catmando's post.

Re: Spectrum 512

Can someone unearth copies of 'DigiSpec' and 'ST Control' ? Both are from Trio Engineering as well.

DigiSpec is mentioned here: http://doudoroff.com/atari/spectrum.html
ST Control is a BASIC like language that can be used to automate the process of making animations with UniSpec.
