Interview section online

July 30, 2004 by ST Graveyard

Hello everybody,

Even though the sun has been shining the past days and it is pretty hard to sit in front of a screen, it still is with great pleasure that we announce this new update. As you might have noticed, another button at the left side is now clickable! Yes, the interview section is up and running. At the moment there isn't that much in there, but keep on checking the site in the days to come for more interesting conversations with ST celebs!

Also, some of you might have noticed that the site has gotten a little cosmetic change. The width is now fixxxed. So everybody with a res higher than 1024*768 will be seeing the template borders. It might feel a bit weird, but give it a chance. Now everybody can witness the site alignment as it should be!

Enjoy it all! And make sure to let us know what you think at the Forum. Looking forward to reading you comments!

Cheers...

Hatari v0.50 is out

July 26, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image Hatari, the famous Atari ST emulator for Linux, BSD, BeOS, Mac OS X (and other systems that are supported by the SDL library), has been updated. According to the author, here are the changes:

- A lot of internal code cleanup and bug fixes.
- Added a dialog for creating new blank floppy disk images.
- The source code has been optimized for better emulation speed.
- Added RS232 emulation (still very experimental and not very well tested! It seems not to work reliable yet. Help for debugging is very appreciated!).
- Some bugs in the 68000 emulation have been fixed.
- The emulator now checks for double bus errors and stops the emulation if necessary (instead of crashing the emulator).
- Timer-D is now patched correctly again.
- The old font has been replaced by two new fonts so that the GUI now looks better in high resolutions.
- The fonts are now linked into the executable.
- Added support for DIM floppy disk images

Random review

The game is driven entirely by story; you wake up with no memory whatsoever. During the game you’ll encounter bits and pieces of what’s happening all told through pretty cool flashbacks.
