Hmm, I'd question why this was done like this; but it's not my site!

A quick announcement to let you know Stonish website will be closed in a few weeks.

But the project isn't dead: the site is now a part of Atari Legend. This was our dream for many years (one website only).
LynXX did a wonderful job on it, I hope you'll like it.
https://www.atarilegend.com/menusets

So starting today, all 'new' menus will be added on Atari Legend now. Stonish will disappear in 2-3 months.

Of course this topic will stay open, I'll just rename it.

Stay tune, more to come soon :)

OK, if that's your wish. Stonish is well preserved on the Internet Archive after all. I hate website monopolisation but I agree, the transfer is good. I think the only things missing are the size of the disk and when it was originally uploaded. There's enough room there to add that extra information if LynXX fancies it.

Actually, another gripe. You can't see more than 10 disks at once (in this day and age?!) with no option to change that.
AtariLegend really needs a way to change the colour from that turquoise too... A CSS palette swap, if such a thing is possible? All mouth and no input, me. :megaphone:

I'm fine and I'm back on the ST keyboard! Did you see my github? https://github.com/orionfuzion
A new crack is in preparation but it's waiting for the cracktro which will be a nice surprise... ;-)

-- Orion / Fuzion ^Reps
Thank you ! (yes lately, I had hard family time).
I saw the github, it is a great idea to share secrets that countryside guys like me were never able to learn/collaborate on.
To be honest, this is clearly outside my asm knowledge and I hope that skilled people can touch the sky with that 8)
Thank you for coming back from time to time, as oxygene did with "we were", during seconds my hairs are coming back on my head :lol:
Should be nice to see a toki like intro with actual people faces :?:
MagikGimp wrote: Thu Feb 04, 2021 3:11 pm Certainly. I can tell you what I did at least. I personally use Pera Putnik's software to make disk images. Of course you'll need an old computer that still has a floppy drive. I expect there are far quicker methods using a direct connection from an ST to a PC or with an Ultra Satan or similar but I don't have those. I was about to say that I didn't know what "petari" is but it seems that Pera might have gone under this nickname at one point? I have a sneaking suspicion he's also sudest who replied in this very thread not too long ago. Pera has some 'history' here but I'd recognise that broken English and those high expectations anywhere... ;) [That account is 15 years old now though so maybe I'm not so sure about that after all.]
As far as validating archives, that's the problem really. Pompey Pirates aside, It's more of a case of Brume having to painstakingly check each disk image for things that don't load correctly and other such errors. The man is doing the Atari gods' work.
Hope that was useful.
No I'm not this_other_guy, as already said I'm clearly not regular user :?
Just a very old guy, st passionate (from 1987), but overloaded 40's aged father/husband/collaborator with 72h required activity per day loosing against physical reality where 24h are available 8O
I wish I transfer my old disks onto msa, but I failed to find a working floppy disk ; I falled in trap of external USB floppy which are not working (tried 10 years ago, think about it just now by writing this msg).

Sorry for assuming. If you can find an old computer with a working internal floppy drive (and the time to do so!) it's a straightforward, if slow, task to make disk images.

In case some of you missed it:

Code: Select all

Goodbye Stonish!
After 6 years of existence, this website is closing its doors. But it's not a real goodbye! If the decision to close this site was difficult to take, it is because it is worth it. Indeed, in recent weeks, all the menus available here have been integrated into... Atari Legend!
For those who didn't know, we co-founded Atari Legend almost 20 years ago with ST Graveyard and Silver Surfer, and then other friends joined the adventure soon after. My dream has always been to merge PaCigame (ex-Stonish site) with Atari Legend, but at the time, we didn't have the project completed.
Thanks to the great work ST Graveyard did on AL website a few years ago, and more recently to the complete overhaul by LynXX, the dream has come true!
Stonish has therefore been integrated to AL: you can therefore download more than 3600 menus there, and the database is growing day by day (thanks to Mug UK and Marcer for their great help). All of Stonish's menus are available for download, so absolutely nothing was lost during the transfer.
By this summer, Stonish will therefore completely disappear. I'll try to find a way to update the links coming from Demozoo and send them back to Atari Legend (I'm not sure how to automate the task, but we'll have to get started).
Thanks to all contributors who have supported me in recent years, the site has been a great adventure and I will not forget all the support that everyone gave me.
The adventure continues. See you on Atari Legend for even more menus and see you soon!

I had no idea you were behind PaCigame, Brume! Every now and then I get an itch to go hunting for it and PaCidemo too. I really do like your website design, the retro look especially; far more than AmigaLegend's (sorry guys!) I think of myself as an enthusiast but I really know next to nothing about you lot and this community if I'm honest. I feel so behind... Anyway, you're only as old- inexperienced as you feel, right?!

Another member of the community I wanted to ask about: I follow Retro Playthrus on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcS0-c ... MQ3r3Adi0Q) --sometimes I feel I'm his only viewer; poor chap really deserves more-- and I notice a lot of the menus he presents there aren't covered on AtariLegend (or Stonish) at all. Now, I realise there's a distinction between menus for demos and those for games but his latest video is a cracktro by Atari Force and they have what appear to be CD menus for games so why aren't they included on the sites? Secondly, are there plans to include a section for menus for demos or is that to be left to the Demozoo guys? Thanks.

No problem :)
I saw that there were useless controversy about safari guns.

While during this time *real* question exists:

speedking
or
navigator ?

Non-konix users are encouraged to get-out of course :wink:
That is a far much impacting question on our lives, definitely.

I found a very old laptop with internal floppy drive (but lost power adapter), does it work with that kind ? is it worth to find/buy compatible power adapter ?
