the IDE port plugs directly on the CPU bus I know that Mario's one does, but what about the Paksud version that MugUK has bought. http://www.rsi.pl/paskud/ I am sure that this plugs into the cartridge port and is therefore incompatible with any of the current HD tools, and I doubt you could boot fr...

How does the other IDE interface work? Plugs into the cartridge port? Any wires / soldering?

Current BOM (bill of materials) means that I probably require a sale of 30 to break even (not including the NRE). If it goes ahead, it will probably come with a licensed copy of HDDriver 8.16 and a get-you-going formatted low size flash card. This will push the price up, but ensure that the author o...

STe Compact Flash Adapter

I was thinking contacting Mario Becroft and asking if he would allow me to produce a limited number of his Atari STe IDE adapters. Failing that design my own. It was my intention to slightly modify the design so that it directly accepts Compact Flash Cards without an adapter. Would anyone be interes...

This cable would work on a monitor that supported 50Hz vertical refresh and 15KHz horizontal refresh rate. i.e. some of the Amiga monitors by Microvitec or good NEC multisync ones.

You might want to connect up Mono-detect? Then you could also use Hi-Res?

If you have a dual input monitor, or a KVM you can get High Res just by creating a 13-pin DIN to 15-pin D VGA cable. You'll never get anything other than GEM or well behaved games to work though your PC card... Anything that uses overscan almost certainly wont work. Not sure why it doesnt work at al...

All good EPROM programmer software supports splitting 16-bit data into two 8-bit ROM's.... look for the option in the GUI.

The most memorable crack for me was the Automation Crack of Dungeon Master. My mates ST was an STe and it didnt work on the STe unless you held down the number key as the intro was loading... and even then the colours went nuts etc. for a bit.

There may have been a v2 but I never had it.

Couldnt help to store them with a dessicant like Silica Gel packs.

Remember to put the Gel packs on the radiator for a couple of hours every now and again to dry them out.

Yeah they are Zero Ohm links.

The position of the links is dependant on the EPROMS you used

I have one, it was written by Grazey of PHF, the souce code is on one of the Zak hacks. Sounds a bit gritty but hey. It should play Jochen Hippels (four channel?) rendition of the Turrican II intro.

Steem is a great piece of intellectual property, until the SteeM authors quit the scene, I dont think it will become open source. I mean I wouldnt! The same goes for SainT.

I dumped the first full collection of ADR UK disks using Mookie's collection. The disks had been in the attic for years. The dumps were done on a PC in DOS using Makedisk 1.4 not on an ST. The dumps were only done once. (not twice with a CRC check). If you happen to have got the ones I dumped then t...

T.K.G. loader final is 3 mins 4 seconds long and is the full track.

The reason it ends so abruptly and doesnt in the game is because it loops back to just after the start (about 38 seconds), which I dont think you can do in a mod (can you?)

Plays fine in deliplayer.

As has already been said they only do partial address decoding, it saves logic gates, and so they ignore the top bits of the address.

The effect is the SAME register can be accessed from two or more addresses.
