Atari ST Demos that run from Satan drive

Postby Spritexl » Sat May 03, 2014 2:39 pm

Hello there, have just purchased a Satan drive for my Atari 1040 STFM, have found loads of games which I can run from it, however few scene demos. Are these available??, would love to run some of the classic demos like Union Demo or Cuddly Demo etc instead of using floppies. Can anyone recommend a good site to get these (if there available).



My thanks

Are you talking about the original SatanDisk, or the later UltraSatan?

If the latter, then no problem, but the earlier SatanDisk may have issues with some demos that use data streaming (Dead Hackers 'Drone' demo) as it isn't fast enough to keep up. Mind you, that particular release is also STE only.

Otherwise, just about anything that has a file version will run from both of these :-)

Thanks for that, this is just for the SatanDisk. Great site but struggling to run some of the demos, guess more memory is required in my ST [FACE WITH TEARS OF JOY]

Another pro tip coming up.

If you're using HD Driver then press escape when booting up. This sets 'minimal memory usage'. This could well make a difference for some demos if you've only got 1 meg of memory. Otherwise HD Driver does take up a fair amount of ram relative to wwhat you've got to start with.

I made a little start getting demos that run off (Ultra)Satan disk together. Im more than happy to share what I got with you in an format that you can extract and copy onto your sdcard.

I am wondering however if anyone else has a similar approach, and is perhaps willing to share?

Its a small bunch, together with some blatant selfpromotion :).

If anyone has more of these `packs', I keep myself recommended.
