Re: WIP Atari ST ScummVM-lite

DotT has never had music on my TT. All the other ScummVM programs have music.

Re: WIP Atari ST ScummVM-lite

I've tried DotT and MI2 intros.

Still no music on the TT with DotT and still some text rendering issues, especially seen in the DotT intro, as you can see here:

Ok, Hatari is really much more forgiving than the real deal. :D It still shows two bombs.

Sounds like the program is trying to use memory that it doesn't "own" then.

You could also limit the program to have a 24bit address range so that all those tricks wit...

Re: Need for an MMU in an 030?

Interesting, Never knew that. #030noob. On a ST, ROM can be remapped anywhere in RAM anyway, Though some bad programs might not like it. Though not sure if anyone's tried in 32bit space, but assume it would work. The beauty of the MMU is that you can copy the ROM into RAM and set up the page tables...
