"You are quite mistaken here. The standard amiga had the equivalent of max 1 mb ST-ram (where sound, videodata etc has to be located), the atari can use 4 mb for that. Amiga can have up to 9mb RAM in total. ST can have 14mb."
You say "standard Amiga", do you mean the A500?
If you do, and lets say for the sake of argument that a "Standard Amiga" can have no more than 9 meg RAM, then can a "standard" atari ST have 14 meg ? Or are you comparing a "Standard" Amiga with a "Top Shelf" ST?
I am not biased in this argument either way, I am just confused as my Amiga 1200 has a Zorro 3 card with 8 meg fast RAM on a 72 pin simm card, which in addition to the A1200's 2 meg of Graphics memory makes erm 1,2,3...... 10 Meg RAM! (Just enough fingers and thumbs there!
Greenious also claimed the Amiga could have no more than 1 Meg of Graphics memory, mine has 2 Meg.
I accept however, that I perhaps do not own a "standard" Amiga. Or do I?
Also, it has not been unheard of, by me anyway, for Amigas to have over 128 Meg RAM, my Emulator will allow up to 512M Z3 Fast RAM, however, perhaps this is irrelevant.
So as I said, don't shout at me as I am not biased in this discussion, as it would appear to me that many of you are, but please carry on as it is quite amusing
Here, give me a straight answer to this one: If the Amiga and ST are so different, then why was Starglider 2 released on "one size fits all" disk, which works on both Amiga and ST? and it does because I had (maybe still have) the very game, or a copy of it (copied on Amiga nibble copy).
