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- The old font has been replaced by two new fonts so that the GUI now looks better in high resolutions.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

Wolfenstein 3D v0.4

July 26, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image One year after the version 0.3, the new edition of Wolfenstein 3D is available on one of the TSCC Websites. Remember the game works on any 16/32 bit Atari Computer (indeed, it runs on a simple 1040 ST!).

New features are:
another faster and less memory consuming c2p, static objects (a major step towards a more complete game engine) and a 256 color title picture (from the apple IIgs version). You can also resize the gamewindow by pressing +/- during the demo to gain some speed on 8 mhz machines.

Visit ray's homepage to grab Wolfenstein 3D v0.4.

Blue SoftWare reaches the 100th number!

July 23, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image As you probably noticed, The Byte of Blue SoftWare (also member of The Chaos Engine, famous for his great CDs) has recently produced some new DCD menus. This time, he is just coming to actually release issue 100a! The disk is mainly PD games oriented and offers both titles by Reservoir Gods and one title by TSCC. It contains the following stuffs:
- Wolfenstein 3D v0.3
- Chu Chu Rocket Lite
- Jet Set Willy
- Godpey
- Docs of Chu Chu Rocket, Godpey, Wolfenstein 3D and full listing of DCD menus.
At last thank to The Byte for still releasing DCD in 2004. We are all now waiting for issue 100b. And maybe more, who knows ;-)

Just one click and download BSW DCD disk 100a!

Random review

If this was a PD game, it would deserve a 4/10. But this is a commercial game, and it was released at full price, even with its horrible graphics and nonexistent gameplay. I guess it was programmed in a week or so. In other words, I hereby declare "Football Manager: World Cup Edition" the worst ST game ever (IMHO, of course)! Good work, Kevin !

Did you know?

"So we went to Atari and said, 'Hey, we've got this amazing thing, even built with some of your parts, and what do you think about funding us? Or we'll give it to you. We just want to do it. Pay our salary, we'll come work for you.' And they said, 'No.' So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said, 'Hey, we don't need you. You haven't got through college yet.'" -- Apple Computer Inc. founder Steve Jobs, on attempts to get Atari and HP interested in his and Steve Wozniak's personal computer
