68010 in Mega STE

Finally I was able to put working 68010 CPU in my Mega STE, thanx to Exxos, who generously sent me 1 piece. Saying it because I ordered one some years ago from China, and it is dead as piece of rock. It works with TOS 2.06 - where is support for that CPU, and will work with some other versions what ...

Re: Building the Commodore that should have existed, an interview with Stefany Allaire

I had some struggle there with posting comment. There is some simple math captcha + object name input. Later is really dumb - you see glass of beer - what to type in - just beer or more. I even don't know how those larger 'glasses' for beer are called in US, for instance. Anyway, after 4th attempt -...

Re: TT Software overscan?

On ST(E) overscan is achieved by making some writes to video registers (for freq. change) in very accurate moments of horizontal scanline. That's possible only with 100% CPU load, and knowing exact instruction execution times (cycle count) . Luckily, you can use there not only delays, but something ...

Re: Windows bashing

Well, my main tool works only in Windows. And it still works in latest ones, although there are diverse issues, mostly in fullscreen mode, what I barely use. And despite I agree with all bad said, we must be aware that there are things where Windows is better than any Linux - and here I don't mean g...

Re: Windows bashing

My mistake - I meant shift key (and it is same key in Total Commander - silly me :D ) . So, if you hold down shift key, and then click delete, Win will say: Are you sure to want to delete .... and will delete, without Recycle Bin. But in Total Commander you can set it to opposite - so delete will be...

Re: TT Software overscan?

There is a auto program for the STe that allows interlace in 320x200 or 640x200. I used to use is for 640x400i in 16 colours on my MegaSTe. That would have to be possible on a TT at least? Certainly. Although, I would not call it 16 colors - rather headache :D And it is certainly not 640x400i - at ...

Re: Windows bashing

I just have to press delete and it goes into the bin, then I can copy the files. I can understand your reasoning, but for me its just a annoyance. No, when you press delete then it is simply deleted, and goes not in bin. Otherwise, there would be no space for copy. It is reasonable to assume that u...

Re: Windows bashing

IMHO thats not so much a matter of space calculation as of data security. If you overwrite an existiting file, windows will first copy the new file, then delete the old file and rename the new file with the old filename. This is because if copying fails or is aborted, it will not have destroyed the...

Re: Windows bashing

Huh ! I use same Win version, and never noticed it. With reason: I use Total Commander ! :idea:
With Explorer, it happened exactly as you said. Really pathetic.
So, and of course - folks, use Total Commander. Not only it does it better, it has plenty of useful options.
