Re: Atari 520/1040 ST F/FM/E repro boxes - In the making

I bought a few NEW ST's back in the 80's and 90's, and none of them came with a boxed mouse.
IIRC, the mouse was in a plastic bag inside a larger undecorated box that also contained the
manuals, floppy disks and cables.

Re: TT and monitor stand

I had a quite heavy (certainly more than 8kg iirc) EIZO F57 17" CRT standing on top of my TT for 5 years or longer.
There were no problems or defects at all. The case was more or less designed to have a monitor standing on it.
Plus it also looks pretty good this way. But that is just my opinion.

I have an original french 1040 STF box - just the empty box, no insides.
Shipping will likely be a pain, depending on your location.

Re: Easiest way to get high speed serial on Mega STe?

It has been a very long time for me, but I used a terminal software called "Rufus" on my MegaSTE, together with HSModem package, and I was using my U.S. Robotics modem @ speeds of either 38400bps or 57600bps. Might have even worked at higher settings. I was using the serial port on the slo...

Re: There are tons of BEST of threads, how about the WORST ST games?

I remember Son Shu Shi from back in the day.
I liked the game, and wanted to complete it, but it was impossible because the crack is bad.
So was this ever fixed?!

Re: 1040STe and SC1435....

I originally owned the versatile Philips CM8833 - but when I saw the new SC1435 at my friends place, I was interested to buy it immediately. And I never regret it til this day, it's still happily working. The 8833 got into some problems years ago, and I had to recycle it at some point.

Re: Looking for games goodies

I might still have the cast photo of the Platoon movie that was included with the Platoon game. Afaik, this was a long time ago though, the first edition of Chaos Strikes Back included a coin. Could probably think of some more, but I don't really have any goodies left.

Back in the day I had the aixTT-ram card. It could hold up to 64 MB TT-ram in 2 slots (so 2*32mb maximum). Probably not an easy find nowadays I assume. I was very satisfied with that card, although I "only" used it with 40 MB max (32+8). Plus I had 8 MB ST-ram, though not on some expansion...

Re: B.A.T. MV16 cartridge dump

I used to have B.A.T original with MV16 cartridge. I thought the sound output was not bad. There was also a module player where you could select the audio to be output to MV16. This was not related to the game in any way. Of course if you have an STE with stereo this cartridge is just a bad joke :)
