Excellent, thanks for finally publicising :)

Hmm, does this mean I have to get on and actually do some more experiments?

Atari Forum Wiki now open for your text/pics etc.

Postby Mug UK » Wed Jun 21, 2006 10:56 pm

Ladies & Gentlemen, Atari Forum now has a Wiki!

Myself, Silver Surfer and Daeghano have been working on a little side-project when time permits and now it's time to open the doors and let everyone else add their bits!

The three of us that have been working on the Wiki have left a fairly open structure for you to play with. So play away!

We want everyone (who can be bothered) to share their knowledge displayed in Atari Forum (and anywhere else in the Atari world) with as many people as they can.

Games, Hardware (fixing, modding and upgrading), Coding, Hacking and other stuff. All important information is welcome in the Wiki.

Don't worry about editing/spelling/grammar as I can work my magic with my virtual 'red pen' - did I mention my day job is a Technical Author?

I've got an RSS feed which will show me all new edits made on the Wiki, so behave yourself those childish people who like to damage things! :)

If you're serious about adding a lot of entries, then I can invite you into the Wiki discussion area. If this takes off, then we can always make the area a public one. All depends on how it all takes off I guess :)

Go take a browse and let me know what you think in this thread. If you want to add some pages, then create yourself an account.

Very nice so far...

Handy place to point people about disk imaging etc - certainly saves bumping people to old threads etc...

Looking forward to more expanding content soon :)

A great idea, I will contribute any way I can, in fact I already have :)

But if it doesn't work properly, don't ask Mug or his red pen, it is your problem, see Silver Surfer :wink:

Excellent idea!

I made a change to the Getting Started/Emulators/PocketPC part. There was an incorrect link to CaSTaway, this is an emulator for Palm OS/Zodiac/GP32/PSP.

The correct emulator to use for PocketPC is CastCE.


All the best,

Keep 'em coming. The more the merrier etc.

Picture uploads should be working now as Silver Surfer did a quick fix on it.

Everyone who's posted a change has been added to the Wiki section on the forum and I'll continue to do so - well, so long as they're members here that is!

Here's hoping we can make the Wiki into the "be all and end all" of Atari knowledge :)

ooo eck!

Ive buggered it up a bit :oops:

When CastCE is clicked on the link is wrong and it now goes into an editing state. :(

Sorry Mug.

EDIT: All fixed now. :D Just a learning curve.
Until info is entered onto the page it does stay in an editing state (ie Gemulator) PHEW!

Ee bye eck
Just nipped out to the lav - came back in and muggys' gone and brought one of those Wiki things home. Well now young man I suppose you think that's a good idea, letting them that knows nowt find out the easy way. Nothings worth aving that the don't ave to graft for. Think on't. and you're goin to let all and sundry put things in it, I don't know what is the world coming to. It'll come to no good I can tell you - all this sharing of information. When I was a lad people knew that private was private ... all this "sharing" in public it just won't do i can tell you.

Hmmph well maybe it has it's uses. But don't expect me to like it mind. you with you're knew ideas 8O

No probs .. if anyone has got any links to a simple Wiki editing guide - say in PDF format? - then I'll upload it to the Wiki for new starters/visitors.

So long as it covers the basics on creating links and simple page layout techniques.

The Cheat Codes one is in dire need of someone to put them into proper columns as it's getting a little bit too big :)

When the file upload is working, apparently we can include .OGG files.

Just added the MAC OSX links. - Sorry Jace.

Note to MUG: I originally created a link to 'NOSTALGIA' and added a bit of text.
I then went back and renamed it to 'NoSTalgia', this in effect created a new blank record that I populated with the same info.

End result is 2 records (NOSTALGIA and NoSTalgia) one of which is not linked to.

I have a feeling I done the same with the castce link as well.


Cheers,

ASY

OK .. I think I can find your edits and delete the wrong pages (in theory!)

Still teaching myself this as we go along :)

Might be worth creating a "I think I've cocked up somewhere" thread inside the Wiki section :)

Something else...

When uploading a graphic/file?, the filename gets altered to include a capital letter at the front of the filename.

ie: castce.jpg uploads as Castce.jpg

If you look in the Uploaded Files area .. does it still have the captial letter? If so, refer to the pic with a capital letter I guess.

Sorry I can't be much help at the mo, as I'm learning as much as everyone else is :)

I'd be ready to copy an explanation I wrote about how to get an Atari online via ethernec and Sting to the wiki.
Just need an appropriate place.

Will take some time as I want to go through it again.

Added a bit of stuff here and there - I'm trying to remember a bit more, but it's difficult seeing as I'm in Canada now and any material input I possibly have is in my parents' attic in jolly old England... Plus I slung my ST (which had been in bits for a long time) and all the disks sometime in 2004.. I'm all STEEM based these days unfortunately.. :(

If someone could post a 'most wanted' list, it might give me a bit of inspiration... ;)

If you got the time, then there are plenty of cheat codes etc. that need testing and some require screenshots adding to them to show what *should* happen when you enter a code. I've left notes here and there in that section to remind me (or anyone else!) to add a screenshot.

Also there's a mine of information done by Greenious and others inside the Hardware section on the forum which needs transferring across.
