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

From which country you are? ST was used by many professionals, there were lot of software for any kind of professional work. Beside, some most important software of today starts its life on non-PC platforms so Atari, Amiga and Mac played important role in accelerating software progress. Only when P...

Re: Atari SW programming: on real HW or in emul/debug. ?

Yes, Notepad is easy for use, and actually you can set what font to use. But it becomes slow with longer files - over 200 KB . I have some 800 KB long ASM sources. Funny how simple thing like inserting new line can take 3-4 seconds on 4 GHz machine :shock: So, I use then rather Wordpad. Crimson Edi...

Certainly for A1200 accelerators are all over the place. But remember in the times these machines were current (85-92) an 8 or 14Mhz processor really was enough, even if it wasn't impressive. Even at the end you were spending over £1000 for a monochrome 68000 mac. So where you see accelerators pop ...

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. The most professional uses I ever saw a ST do back then was CuBase and TimeWorks DTP the popular setup was either 2mb or 2.5mb ram upgrade with a external disk drive and sometimes a MegaFile hard drive thing...

Atari ST/Falcon chip design files recovered

Might be of interest a guy recovers the schematics and chip design info for some of the ST/Falcon parts from some old floppy disks quite a feat in itself but the treasure he got was surely worth it. Maybe this info would help develop stuff in the future?
