Still commercially / supported / developed software?

Postby leech » Mon Aug 21, 2017 11:57 pm

Do we have a list of commercially supported software that is still active for TOS?
This would be games/applications, though I figured most of them would be applications since games are mostly hobby source ports at this point (with some extremely awesome home brews! I did end up buying Orion's games)

The ones off the top of my head;
Commercial (still developed):
HDDRIVER: http://hddriver.seimet.de/en/
PPera's hard driver: http://atari.8bitchip.info/pphdr.php
Calamsu SL 2015: https://www.calamus.net/order/
Extendos: http://www.anodynesoftware.com/

Commercial (Can purchased but no longer developed):
N.AES 2.0: http://woller.com/n.aes.html
Inshape: http://inshape.lutece.net/pro.html

Once Commercial, now free:
EB Model is free since 2001: http://helijah.free.fr/pages/download/download.htm

Free:
MyAES http://myaes.lutece.net/
AtarIRC and GFA Basic: http://96.32.243.246/~gfabasic/atari/?fref=gc

Free version with possibility of future commercial:
Photoline: http://acp.atari.org/ (search for Photoline on the page)

Thanks! I will update the original post. I knew about extendos, just forgot about it.

Sadly Pagestream dropped TOS support long ago.

He has been doing also an incredible job on EmuTOS, all the harddisk/partition and desktop related fixes are coming from him. Actually, nowadays most of the work on EmuTOS is done by him!

Reminds me of when I ordered my Atari 850 from B&C Computers. That was so long ago there was still the whole land line long distance thing going on too.

N.AES 2.0 http://woller.com/n.aes.html

Edit: I'm not sure how you define commercially supported but the developer still sells it and responds to emails.

I guess I define it as something that has been patched/updated within the last 2 years, and you can still purchase it.
1) because this way for those of us who don't now about such software we can potentially buy it and support those who support us
2) maybe we can point out a potential for more sales / fixes for old software.

Look at what has happened (is happening?) with Geneva / NeoDesk. Should be freeing the code so hopefully one day it'll work on CT6x platforms.

I think we have to differ between software that's is still sold for the Atari platform but that's not developed anymore (like N.AES) and software that's still sold and that's still supported by the developer (like HDDRIVER).

MagiC Mac X is also still sold. You may buy it for 180 €! 8O

Hmm, though MagiC Mac X is software for Mac to run TOS software, right? I noticed you can get Calamus for macs that run under it too, kind of seems like Calamus was ported via a TOS layer, since they have a WinPack and MagiC Mac X version alongside the TOS version.

Going to try to boot an Afterburner with an 060 using EmuTOS on the cartridge port soon. Fingers crossed,

How did you manage to use a 68060 with the Afterburner? I thougt the Afterburner could only be used with a 68040?

I'm going to assume it's with the same method that I use an 060 in my Amiga with the A3640 daughter board.

You can get a Socket adapter for the 040 -> 060. https://amigafun.wordpress.com/2014/09/ ... -adapters/

Perhaps this adapter might also work in my Milan so I could try to replace the 68040. Unfortunately the 68060 is very expensive.

Yes, too bad there is no English translation available.

I bought it from ASH a few years back and tried to translate the menus with a hex editor, but it must have some checksum protection because any translating would make it not work. :(
