Re: foss-north 2018: Atari ST Free Operating Systems

I see already, you need about another year to understand my idea. Same as with Vampire (soon this will be alive on ST board). Ps: If you don't need that unix stuff, just don't open the bash... Freemint is free software so there is nothing stoping you from creating your own distro. P.S. vanillamint ...

Re: SMSPlus for the Atari falcon

Unless you rework each game like Anima did with the x68k and the Neo Geo games there is no way you can emulate it on a standard Falcon. Megadrive should be unlikely on a CT60 without supervidel either way. Genecyst the oldest emulator needed a pentium with 8MB of RAM to work so it is within the CT60...

Re: One last thing

Saw the video. Looks fun. I wish my falcon was still alive. I'll give it a try on hatari. Thanks for the release! I am sure with a little a bit of fiddling you can get it to as good a speed as you want. It's just that the falcon is a bit strange in its graphics so you kind of need to work with it :)...

Re: Welcome to Neon Shooter!

Not clear for me: what is the targeted platform? I'd guess, android/ios. Definitely not ST though it could be doable on an accelerated falcon and maybe Jaguar with fewer particle effects. Nothing to do with this forum though, just a developer trying to publicize their game. Nothing wrong with that,...

Re: why use ASM anymore

I have programmed many languages and on PC it's mostly C or C++, C# and so on... But on older computers like the Atari I prefer the 68000 assembler. It's not much different than program in C. C: A = A + 1 ASM ADD #1,D0 C: A = B[10] ASM MOVE 10(a0),d0 It's more or less the same syntax so it's not di...

Re: The FPGA and non-Atari cores deserve the cover of this forum?

I agree. I even posted something silly on an emutos question because i didnt notice it was for fpga. I like reading about fpga atari but not so much about other cores.
If phpbb can supress subforums from appearing on the active list that would be great.

Re: Porting SOTB to the Falcon

Also, there are so many sotb demo screens for the ST we have outgrown it as a community. It is a very badly designed game tha cant be fixed by altering a few things here and there.
Also zarchos you really need to stop taking every criticism as a personal attack. That's just silly.

I really wish those accelerators would include a little bit of fast RAM too. 4. Overclocked 68000 without cache. Very limited use, speed increase almost not noticeable in real life.

So presumably aranym will run clean (GEM) programs in much the same way that the Milan will only run clean (GEM) progs. Does Hatari run games well ? It might make a suitable way to run games that aren't so clean on the Milan and aranym. Hatari runs games very well but it needs a 2GHz cpu to emulate...

You other partitions are at a format that is only recognized by mint. Maybe above tos limits ,1gb for tos 4.04, maybe vfat, f32, ext2. The drive error is because your system is trying to launch a program from a drive that is unavailable.
