yay cheers Andy.
my C64TPC http://cancarpet.com/saymantek/c64tpc_en.html turned up the other day. cant wait to try it. no doubt it will fry my brain along the way. I am currently undecided as to whether to get an blizzard 030 or 060 for my miggy. the 030 is £150 and the 060 £190. the price difference would suggest getting the 060, as i have seen them going for as much as £350. just don't want to buy something that i have to disable for games all the time.

Yes but only with the help of a RS232 null-modem cable (PC->ST and then write the images back) - but you'll need at least 2MB of RAM. 800K for the image file (or thereabouts) and another 100K for the tool to write the MSA image file back to a floppy disk.

Or someone who's got a wad of menu compilations that he no longer needs once he's made MSA images of them ... ? :)
You can also use MAKEDSK or OMNIFLOP which enables you to write an Atari ST floppy in a standard PC floppy drive.
For best results, format the disk in the ST first, then transfer the image to the disk with your selected program.

The only cost would be postage - unless you're (PZ) going to Byte Back?  If so, I can bring a box of old disks with me if required.  Most could be formatted and used on the Amiga if your brother doesn't want them :)

Not anti-Commodore myself just the Atari ST was the first machine that I paid for out of my own pocket so has been a favourite of mine.  You only have to ask Andy about the Amiga 4000 with various souped up bits inside it that I got for £20 :)



Amiga 4000 for £20,  :o :o :o :o :o :o

PZ,
No problem - the link you actually want is http://leonard.oxg.free.fr/SainT/saint.html
This emulator is superb - if i remember rightly you do need the TOS roms . . . but they can be found on the t'internet :)

Andy
i love this little emulator its great thanx. I will get burned for this, but I often find that some games work a lot better under emu on the atari than amiga

A game I had on my Atari ST which I lost a huge amount of time to was Sundog: The Frozen Legacy, rare as now and eaby ones go for silly money.

Just wondered if any bod is running paradroid90 on this emulator. I have the Atari St paradroid file from the paradroid website - it runs fine on my gp2x but just gets stuck in a load loop with the emu? have tried 2 different TOS roms.
