Re: Scanning Central now open for business...

Aw bless. My old scanner - I think I still have it somewhere. But that 160gb SATA drive is long gone. All my drives are a bit bigger 13 years later :-)

Re: File attachments.

I've looked inside the PHP settings for the forum and the limit is set to 4mb, not 400K. This applies whether it's a post or a message.

If there's any troubles with this then send a message to Dal. I'm just reading from the Admin panel.

Re: A tool that automatically rips Atari ST cracktros that are not in file form

Back To The Future 3 (Replicants) just ripped with ease. Many thanks for this tool Orion :) This one is interesting because the boot sector contains a protection, a TVD routine that checks the integrity of the cracktro. Illegal was really a nasty cracker!

Re: A tool that automatically rips Atari ST cracktros that are not in file form

I only use UIS3 under STEEM to make it easier to navigate through my badly organised C, D & E drives :)

I'll remove that from the AUTO folder and try again.

Re: A tool that automatically rips Atari ST cracktros that are not in file form

First attempt at using it under STEEM and I get "Critical vectors in low memory" and it's back to the desktop after pressing a key :(

Tried both TOS v1.04 (STFM) and a TOS v1.62 (STE) setup. Both with simulated 2MB of memory.

Re: Floppy Disk Stream Image Repository

I'm going back through mine but this time testing them on a 1040STE and making sure I don't waste time by imaging up corrupted disks. Plus it gives me a pile of disks to test the write back of working images :)

Re: Steem - Can I use a USB floppy drive?

It probably won't work. Can your PC read the files via Windows when it's connected to the USB? If so, maybe copy them direct to Windows, then use STEEM to put them back into a .ST disk image file. Other than the above, you need to find someone local to you with an older Windows XP (or 98) PC which h...

Re: Petari's HD adapted games images

Quick question. What are the steps to install the PP HDD Driver which I have licensed on this image? I would use STeem to copy the driver to a floppy disk image. Boot up the disk image and attach the hard-drive image. It should recognise the partition(s) and work. This is a theory though as I use a...

Re: Transfer notator disks for use on gotek

I used Steem. I copied the contents of the ZIPs into four separate folders on my emulated hard-drive. Then created 4 x blank disk images using STeem's disk manager (making sure I used the .ST format). Inserted each disk, copied the files across and rinse and repeat. Then uploaded them here.

Re: Transfer notator disks for use on gotek

The same four disks from the website above, but stored as separate .ST files. Named the same as the .ZIP files from the website too.

(I removed the junk files that a Mac had created in case they tripped the max size for a floppy disk image).

Re: Transfer notator disks for use on gotek

You need an external drive to make MSA images of your disks and then transfer the disks to a PC. Which if you haven't got a PC floppy drive, it becomes a pain. You didn't specify which version of Notator you are running, but if someone has already done the transfer across, then then might be able to...

Re: STOS autorun (when a disk has the STOS folder on it)

Ppera's patch fixes the jump tables in the compiled .PRG file so that the original hard-coded addresses for each TOS ROM routine weren't needed. (At least that's how I understand it). It looks for certain bytes to be present at certain addresses and then does the magic required and creates a new .PR...

Cheers MoA.

How did you patch it as the Ppera patch didn't even get as far as creating the backup of the original PRG?

Have you tried patching SkyStrike+?

Re: STOS autorun (when a disk has the STOS folder on it)

OK, cheers for looking.

I'll try renaming the DEMO.BAS to AUTO.BAS and see if that works, if not, I'll go back to using the AUTOEXEC.BAS solution.

Then I will use the same methods as learned so far to fix a few more demos for DemoZoo.

Re: STOS autorun (when a disk has the STOS folder on it)

That's now fixed. It boots and whilst it now shows "TOS v1.62" after STOS is loaded, it's now STE compatible (except for the 6th screen as previously mentioned). If you compare the fixed disk to the original, there isn't an AUTOEXEC.BAS on the original disk. I've checked for hidden files too, so it'...

Maybe I misunderstood, but I have created the AUTOEXEC.BAS that does that Run command as above. But the demo still boots into STOS editor and sits there :( Once running it all works, but with a tiny bit of screen corruption on the last screen (F6 - END).

STOS autorun (when a disk has the STOS folder on it)

On the STOS Facebook group, Neil Halliday posted a few demos. Some were easy to fix with the STOSFP1 tool. But others still had the STOS library files on. So my theory was to get a copy of the latest STOS from the STOS Time Tunnel, then compare the files in the disk with the latest and replace the o...
