Do you eat meat? You do? Then please shut up. yes,we all eat meat, but i think you don't realise that the way of killing is not the same, and the aim not the same ! it's possible to kill animals without crualty. Just as it's possible with humans. They do it all the time in America, with lethal inje...

Topic: Is it possible to read/write Amiga formatted disks on Atari
Replies: 31
Views: 11983

The Amiga uses a non-PC, non-Atari and proprietary disk drive. I think it's 800k instead of the standard 720 as well. That non-standard disk drive has been a bane for years, there's creative workarounds but nothing is as easy as the ST :) There is nothing proprietary about the Amiga disk drive. It'...

You must be thinking of some other country beginning with an S. I have never seen a CPC in this country, and the mags said that the Amstrad agent had no plans to import the CPC.

I've written in a past editorial something in the lines of : "It's funny how the people that were claimed to be responsible for the death of the ST (the hackers), are now the people who keep the scene alive ..." Keep what scene alive? I don't see the crackers coding new games, do you? If anything, ...

Well, the CPC+ also sported hardware sprites, line IRQ interrupts, DMA sound among other things... I think the Sam Coupe (a wonderful little machine, I'd like to get one!) was great too, with great expandability as well, a shame it never got off the ground (much less support than the CPC+ that you ...

i remember vaguely a machine back then called victor (not really sure) it was rather designed for office use but featured impressive graphics etc.. The Victor/Sirius was a semi-PC compatible. Its only claim to fame is that it's designed by the father of the 6502, Chuck Peddle. wasn't the TI99/4a a ...

Jokes aside, didn't DR release a GUI for Cp/M-80, just like they did with GEM for MS/pC/DR-DOS? I seem to remember reading about their 8-bit GUI in an old issue of personal computer world...

Atari should count themselves very happy for actually being let off the hook by Apple. Look at GEM on the pC, which was forever crippled due to Apple's legal wrangling with Digital Research.

Whenever you're going to use multicolour on the C64, horizontal resolution is halved. The games do look horribly blocky, but at least the C64 has got at least one bitmapped mode, unlike many of its contemporaries. As for the CpC+ series, they certainly have impressive specs (larger pallette, sprites...

Gryzor: No, the Atari is badder. There has been Greek Workbench for the Amiga since a long time ago. Vag: Some TOS versions are machine specific, such as 2.05, 3.x, 4.x. Others, such as 2.06, work with most machines. Also, TOS is already multilingual, so assuming that Greek isn't a particularly spac...

The only good thing is that it had a z80 running at 4 Mhz while other 8-bits where running around 1.78 Mhz (ATARI XL/CBM 64) Apart from the CPU speed the Amstrad doesn't look much better than the older 8-bits by ATARI and Commodere. You can't just compare clock speeds straight off between different...

C= 1084s and their closest of kin, the Philips 8833, work just fine with Ataris, and just about everything else, too. Depending on the specific model of 1084 (there were loads), you may need a different cable, all of which have been produced and sold at one time. There are three common analogue inpu...
