Re: Editing a message

While I do hope admins can find a way to allow editing, like shadowcopies or similar. I personally feel this has grown out of proportion. There are not many other forums I'm visiting that allows people to edit their posts in perpetuity, and certainly not any forums of size. And when we now close thi...

Re: Editing a message

If you had modified the original post, your change most likely will go unnoticed. Correct, and personally I find it very annoying when people do this. Even worse - the last post only says "first post updated" and when you look at the first post you have no idea what has been updated. Yes,...

Re: Hardware Project: Is this even possible?

Well, the VME slot is a good place to put things, but yes, you would have to add some additional wires if you want to use more than the VME bus allows, making it less installation friendly. As for gfx, at this point in time I'm not so sure these old chipsets, or ISA/PCI cards, can be sourced very ea...

Re: Hardware Project: Is this even possible?

All of that has been done, one way or another, for the ST(E) already, so there's certainly nothing impossible about it. There's a few things I'd like to point out though IDE & SD, there are tons of cheap IDE to SD adapters out there, you could never make a cheaper variant on the ST, so I would j...

Hm, yeah. Can you get your messages edited by reporting them, or does reporting not allow you to input a reason?

Actually, you can.

The hardware was OEM and used by quite a number of brands.

Re: Someone has open sourced an STM/STF Blitter/TOS 2.0 and IDE expansion board

Many STFMs, atleast later revision mobos, are already prepared for a blitter. Either there is an empty socket, or somewhere you can put a socket. This board is for short ST, where there is no dedicated socket: http://www.atari-wiki.com/images/1/1d/ST_Motherboard_C070243_Rev_E_520STM.jpg Yes, I wrot...

Many STFMs, atleast later revision mobos, are already prepared for a blitter. Either there is an empty socket, or somewhere you can put a socket. So this board is not necessary for most, if you only want blitter. But it's a cool piece of work nonetheless. I suspect a version featuring an FPU instead...

Re: Top Ten – Rarest / Most Valuable Atari Jaguar Games!

Telegames and Songbird regularly makes new prints of their games, so calling them rare is a stretch.

It's another thing with the games that will never see a reprint, such as Rayman, and several other of the original releases.

Re: Having issues with TOS 1.04 ROMS.

Oh, you leave so many questions unanswered on what you have done it's almost painful. So it's kinda easier to describe how it works instead of trying to decipher what you've been up to... On ST, TOS, from a software perspective, is the same regardless if it's a 2 rom version or 6 rom version. All ve...

Nice work Czietz! I certainly want one... :)

I assume the USB connector follows PC-standard? One or two USB ports?

Why did you choose a 40 pin IDE socket and a separate power connector over a 44-pin IDE socket?

No, you didn't miss anything. His standard library is missing, and it makes pretty much all of his sources hard to compile I'm afraid.
