Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

It was based on " I never liked the black text on white screen thing... could this be changed easily for white (or grey) text on black background? I know this looks like DOS...." It's easy to make it inverted while logo is displayed, without swapping palette. Actually, I need always to invert all it...

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

invbw.png Must admit that looks not that bad. I'm too afraid from darkness, it seems :D I can add color swap at same pos. where option to change refresh rate is - right after logo is displayed. Key S for instance will swap B and W . Possible of course with very short proggie in AUTO folder, or in b...

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

I think that word patch is overused. It is with games updated for hard disk run - in some cases there are patches, for sure, but in my case most of it is on special TOS in RAM environment - that's used in some 65 % of games, since that's percentage of games using TOS calls. Klapauzius used something...

UltraSatan wanted

My UltraSatan is now dead, after lot of torturing it with thousands of game adaptations, then in latest time there was lot of problems with Mega STE too, what needed zillion power on and offs.

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

OK, the details, please: not just patch. Actually, with FAT16 improving I did what Atari programmers managed to drag until company bankrupted. That was 2 months of work. With sources could be much less. Virtual Floppy will be about same time when is done completely. I don't want to push my name, esp...

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

Folks, this is not voting :D Classic Atari logo is indicator that it is TOS 2.06 - so out of consid. Red logo must be not red, as said. But it appeared that it is logo done by Infogrames, when it bought Atari (game division, or what left) - that's surely not OK for old machine, regardless from look....

Re: Ideas to create other languages versions of updated TOS

As said "this is just test version, not complete 1.05 ." There is lot of work to do yet. Other language versions need to solve some new problems. I asked for testing input, because there is some short extra code in Spanish TOS, what seems to activate when Alt is pressed, during keyboard input. It ma...
