Did you increase the initial number of lives from 3 to 5? ;)
No, that's what you get with 2 disk Firebird release. You may check with STX images if don't believe me :D
Beside it, why to change when have cheat options.

Re: Flying Shark level corruption on both FlashFloppy and HxC

I looked deeper in code. Floppy change and it's detection isn't done well. Now deactivated it completely. Added super cheat, with what can quickly pass levels. During it, once had screen corruption, in Steem. Never after corrections. So, may be that will be fine with Gotek too . Same loc. for DL: ht...

Re: Flying Shark level corruption on both FlashFloppy and HxC

Of course that unnecessary disk change message must not mean that it is bad version, but surely is not good sign - those who released it like that did not put much effort - to be user friendly, and probably did not test it well. Actually there are 2 versions of this game for Atari ST. Visible at tit...

Re: Flying Shark level corruption on both FlashFloppy and HxC

This image seems as not well made - for instance it asks to insert floppy B, while all is on 1 disk.

Try this: http://atari.8bitchip.info/ASTGA/F/flyings.php

Second DL - ST file.

Re: Flying Shark level corruption on both FlashFloppy and HxC

Come on ... I want to check exactly the image you using. I have this game, so no need to search for.

Re: Flying Shark level corruption on both FlashFloppy and HxC

Actually, Steem's floppy timing is not that good at all. Not even with Pasti always. Maybe you use Steem SSE ?
Can you post image you using ?

Re: Quadruple Your Internet Speed for Free..

In home usage some 50 Mbit/sec, so about 6 MBytes/sec is quite fine for normal user, 1-2 computers. Free fileshare goes not over 6 MB/sec usually. And even some larger DL of free SW, like Linux distro goes not much faster, if is faster at all. I don't think that transfer speed has much with ping. Pi...

Re: Quadruple Your Internet Speed for Free..

We can laugh on that video, but that guy is making serious money with his crap. In 1 minute I spent there 2 ads popped up.
And such things will be more and more present, I expect. As far as some make money with it - YouTube in first place.

Re: Falcon IDE read failing at higher frequencies

I don't think that replaced IDEtoSD or SD card, especially the later have some influence in it. Surely it has - because they are both dead now. ;-) Fortunately I have the same brands of those so I can rule out some incompatibility introduced by new hardware. I think that I was clear with my writing...

Re: Falcon IDE read failing at higher frequencies

It is clear that IDE works not well now, after that shortcut, when it is overclocked. And that before it worked. I don't think that replaced IDEtoSD or SD card, especially the later have some influence in it. Surely they are not all same, some can work faster, some not. It is just that they are new ...
