What Happened To the Atari Hardware

I often wonder what happened to all the hardware companies were selling just prior to the Atari Market collapsing back in the 90's. Would they have dumped it, or is it in storage somewhere?

Re: Does HiSoft Basic 2.10 Run in STEEM

I have created software for work in MS Visual Studio and was going to play around with rewriting them for my Atari. All mathematical based equations mainly with inputs and outputs.

Re: Does HiSoft Basic 2.10 Run in STEEM

Thanks for replies. I haven't mapped joystick probably because I don't play joystick games on STEEM. Is that something I should do? I have tried it on my Mist and it works OK, strange it not working for me in STEEM.

Does HiSoft Basic 2.10 Run in STEEM

Just wondering if HiSoft Basic 2.10 will run within STEEM. Reason I am asking is because I am trying to run it and all seems well, until I try and type code in. There are certain keys on my keyboard that don't render their letter like "a", "z", "$" and the quotations wh...

Re: STE 3 or 11 bombs on boot

I can't imagine this just being the TOS ROMS, sound like something more serious. Check the memory is seated correctly and didn't loosen in transit. Wear an anti static writs strap of course.

Here are your ROM chips in situ and the jumpers to the left in this photo. They will need to be adjusted according to which TOS ROMS you put in. http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh31/DeckerZ2000/IMG_1235.jpg Be careful taking the top of the Atari , there's an LED coming through the case and could ...

Sounds like that's the way to go. I can google it, but where is the best place to go if I wanted to look at starting to code in 68000 assembler?

Re: Interesting Software To Use on Atari STe

Hey thanks for your replys :cheers: .

Learning to program it sounds like the interesting option. I am used to MS VB, so it will be different. Can anyone point me in the direction of decent languages for the Atari, and can I use an emulator to program and test before putting onto the Atari itself?
