Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

Neither is mine, i am just translating. In short Emutos is not TOS and TOS bugs should be included only if many people used them as features. If it is just one developer... you speak of one developer, but one developer can be better than a whole bunch.... because one developer may have created more...

Re: EmuTOS 0.9.9

Seriously though, the way I understand Emutos' scope is that it is not trying to recreate TOS but rather it tries to be a better TOS compatible OS for our Atari systems. With that in mind, the Emutos team needs to aim at better compatibility but at the same time, that should not include turning bug...

I liked the parabole too. It was actually pretty accurate and funny! I really liked the part where the Emutos User wants to step more times on the turd.

Re: NVDI & character mapping

From my user experience the mapping is 1-1. That means that NVDI will just map the first 255 characters in the font to the Atari character set so if you open the font in something like fontforge you will see it as what you display in your image. I don't think NVDI supports unicode at all.

TTF-GDOS Setup

Has anyone managed to get TTF-GDOS 2.2 working? I've tried yesterday but under all my efforts I only managed to load a GDOS font and not in the font size I wanted. Atari works reported that the font loaded was only of 20/40 pts. TTF fonts were not loaded. These fonts worked perfectly with nvdi 3.01 ...

Probably the CT60 ram. You might just need to clean the contacts. I used to do that ever so often.

Also, silly question, did you remove the jumper?

Re: No Atari ST core?

The creator of the MiSTer has said in multiple occassions that he has no interest in the ST because he considers it a bad system so there is very little likelihood that the ST core will be ported over. Now, why Sorgelig decided to use an Atari ST forum for MiSTer is a bit of a mystery. I wouldn't us...

I think that we need something more akin to chrome's make this page mobile friendly mode or firefox' reader mode and forget totally about how the site wants to display the webpage. A recent pc has a hard time displaying modern websites.

Re: Going into demo creation in 2017?

Saying GFA is not good enough to program any demo in is like saying with 16 colors you can't make good gfx (and there are enough 16 color gems to proof otherwise) So ASM is faster, true, but putting the rest down feels to me like disrespect, sorry. Anybody should be able to make a demo in whatever ...

Re: Going into demo creation in 2017?

Yes absolutely. My main suggestion would be to start with simple stuff and not to try very elaborate demo effects. It's also ok to cheat. A good idea is to put a few sprites on screen and have them do something interesting for example. As for programming I use GFA Basic but if you speak any other pr...

Boo hiss! STOS is amazing, and if you are looking at writing games, then I'm sure the library of extensions for STOS will blow away anything available for GFA. However I'll concede that the editor & support for GFA will be much better. I believe the best resource for STOS nowdays is [Exxo's STO...
