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.

Re: TT Software overscan?

... Ray has done a demo which displays 1280x960 with 32 colours per scanline. I havent had time to analyze the code, (theres no source code provided unfortunately) but Im guessing he is using TT med res with L/R border removal and doing a palette change in the middle of a scanline. Im just surprise...

Re: Windows bashing

... What annoys me the most is when theres like 50K free on the disk, the PRG uses 100K, and when I try to copy GB6.PRG (100K) to the floppy, it says floppy full... but 100K of the same file isn't disk full, there would be still 50K free, but nope, windows won't have it, I have to delete the PRG fi...

Windows bashing

Criticizing M$ Windows is popular among Atari ST users, and I did not notice such threads here, so time to do something about :D Just what happened couple minutes ago (and I seen it several times earlier) : Wanted to copy 15 GB long file to Pen Drive - where is space for it. Windows 7 Ultimate said ...

Re: TT Software overscan?

VGA pixel clock is not only 25 MHz. At higher resolutions it goes over 80 MHz . The problem is not only with TT, but any ST in mono-res mode (640x400) too. Horizontally you see some periodical luminance change. Almost like vertical bar. The reason is of course that pixel clock is not 'syncronised' w...

Re: TT Software overscan?

Can I ask why you need TT SW overscan ?
And the reason for that way how it is done in ST(E) works not on TT (and Falcon too, of course) is not only because VGA mode, but whole video circuit is pretty much different.
