running "venus the flytrap"

Postby VAC » Mon Jul 10, 2006 5:21 pm

I have 2 versions of the game "venus the flytrap"
one is the stx and the other has a st extension.

I really like to replay the game, but my old atari is just messed up.
So I started downloading emulator after emulator and trying to get either of the versions to work. But no luck. I've had only a little progress when using the "winfellow" program. It got me to the "press esc to skip intro" screen, but after that nothing happens (even after slamming down the esc key 87 times). One time though it went past that screen and winfellow asked for the 2nd disk (even though I attached both files).

Is this a known problem for the game, or am I just using the wrong emulators?

the st is a single file, and the stx has 2 files.
(im sure I cant post the roms here, so I wont. altough I supose it would be easier for you to help me if I did)

I realise this is my first post here, and I could break rules by asking this, or if posted this in the wrong forum. hereby I apologize.

NP, this place is for questions :) .
I have no problem running the game (stx- and st-file) with Steem, using TOS1.04 and 4MB. Maybe you can try this or tell us, what emus and settings you've used.

On your recomendation I installed steem v3.2.
Downloaded an english TOS 1.04 and put the memory size to 4 mb.

I've selected the folder with the game in it as the c: drive.

But when I open steem says: "You can only print or show this document" I've checked that the file isnt set "read only" in windows.

Can you give me a kick in the right direction? :)

Omg venus works !
I just dragged and dropped the .st in the steem screen, and I got it working
This is so cool to replay this game after so many years.

Thanks for the help Keili :)

Vac - for future reference the ST file needs to be in teh A drive as its a floppy image basically

same for MSA images
