That's good enough for me! Such a good looking game anyway, who needs the ball... :P

Games with an 'attract mode'

I'm looking for games with an arcade style attract mode - that is a demo of the game being played by the CPU while waiting for input from the player. Does anybody know which games have these? I'm sure there must be plenty. I need them to use as a backdrop for my YouTube videos. So far I have: A Preh...

Re: ATARI ST Monospace fonts

Here's a first draft of the Atari 8x16 system font as a ttf. The encoding on this one should match the Kroah font, except I think I messed up one of the dots so I might need to revise it a little, I added some iso8859-1 characters (taking some liberties...), and I didn't include the 0x00-0x1F range...

Sunner games. I thought that too, but the "Epyx" hint gave it away. I think it is The Games: Summer Edition. I actually haven't played it before but I'm assuming it exists due to The Games: Winter edition being around. :D That's the one Bullis, well done, chap. I feel like a right tight-w...

Nope. The photo of the great Beardo is a bit of a red herring, probably just the graphics artist showing off..

I listen to Kohina now and again, too. It doesn't take long for an ST tune to pop up, so it's alright in my book. ;) Thanks for CVGM, native.

I haven't got a Fancy Dan Mac, but I just downloaded it and it opens fine in Windows (Daemon Tools Lite) and Linux (Archive Manager).

Re: Atari ST Beginner Advice

Scart cables do indeed help, but still a lot of modern TVs don't like the STs video output and you could get problems such as flickering, artifacts, blurring or even no picture at all. There is a thread on this forum about multiple attempts to find a LCD TV that will work well as a colour monitor. B...
