Re: What is your Favorite 2 or multiplayer Game On ST/e/F030

Seems to be a lot of love for MIDI Maze 1/2. Must be thing that might be the first that many people had a encounter with a actually fun playable local multiplayer game of that sort. Do remember rigging up all my Atari:s at the time when my gf and her pal came over so could test it,we had quite a fu...

Re: AT&T Unix Source code incl. C and Fortran Compiler for 68K

Done. After a little more investigation, it turned out that these tape marks appear at 5120 bytes distance, which still happens to be the default cpio block size. Nailed together a little program that skips 4 bytes at start and end of such blocks and voilà: modern cpio is able to extract the result...

Re: Devpac 3.10 not assembling

But when moved the mint install to a minix part due to Cubase testing it worked all of a sudden. Minix is more compatible / forgiving than ext2. IIRC it is case insensitive, doesn't require access rights etc. Oh,yes,minix was mainly used for getting Gcc and things like that to work I think so case ...

Also I am testing right now on a Mega ST with a ICD ADSPEED in it.. does it see the ADSPEED as a IDE drive? because it is finding an IDE bus and I dont have one. IDE buses are really just mapped IO at certain locations. And I have slight memory of some devices using the adress range that later was ...

Re: Falcon Just Went on the Fritz! Help Plesae

Well,first before ruining a motherboard ,(there have been a couple of those 'recaps'), check all upgrades and the likes that they are functioning.In fact I would revert to testing with orginal memory with bare machine and so on before assuming anything.And to test with another PSU for starters.
