OK, so what's the third thing to go wrong?
A terrible fire, of course.

TF for the Atari ST?

Hi, I’m trying to get my head around the different options and status of the development, but weren’t terribly (pun! pun!) successful. I’m looking for an accelerator that should work in an Atari 1040STF (DIL/CPU is socketed already), that gives a decent speed increase, some ALT-RAM and IDE. Which on...

Re: Second CPU for audio processing?

How much would a low-end ARM SoC package cost? Would it be easy to integrate? Use a Raspberry Pi Zero as the ZX Spectrum Next does? Vocore2 : complete MIPS computer, 128 MB RAM, 580 MHz, USB, Ethernet, GPIO, under 10$: c. 2x2cm It could be used for much more than just audio processing: (un)packing,...

Re: Adapted games: what makes them incompatible at >16 MHz?

so why it wouldn't work on the CT2 where the only difference is 030@50 MHz? What exactly are you getting when you run it? 'Doesn’t run' isn’t really the most information-overloaded error description :-) A black screen? Garbled graphics? Unplayable controls? A message saying "too many MHz, will stop...

Re: 4mb STFM with accelerator - was there an equivalent way back when?

I don't remember seeing a lot of accelerator cards for the ST in magazines or anywhere else.[…] I think the professional market was just lost out on. For the MegaST there were plenty of accelerators advertised in ST magazines in Germany. The AdSpeed, the Hypercache, the GE, ... most of ’em 68000/16...

Re: 4mb STFM with accelerator - was there an equivalent way back when?

Having the different case meant a lot. Remember, this was in times of SM124 monitor, that has no stand. That and an STFM together on a desk isn't easy to deal with, I mean, even if you have books to rise the monitor up you still have to give space for the cables hanging out the back of your extra d...

Re: 4mb STFM with accelerator - was there an equivalent way back when?

I was more just idly wondering how a slightly faster, 4mb STFM maybe with a blitter would have differed from a Mega ST back then? Apart from the case... The MegaST ran at the same speed than the 1040ST(E/F/FM). The only advantages, besides the case, were the internal expansion port and the blitter,...

Speed comparison TT (was: The "perfect" TT?)

And what software you would run on PC in 1991.? :D The question here was how much performance you get per $$$. And the TT would’ve been good in 1989, but not in 1991 any longer. There were many comparison reviews in magazines of Amiga 3000, TT and some Mac back in 90s. (I could search and scan it i...
