List of CRC of OK OS roms..

Fri Sep 23, 2016 2:11 AM

I keep moaning about a strange XL 2.0 rom I have in my rom set and I really should isolate it, I don't know if its a hack or just a corrupt image so does anyone have a valid list of OK OS good dumps with CRC or similar values so I can cross match and weed it out.


Its a weird one that causes games to crash, ah, as I type this I'm wondering if its an inverrted Option key hack and its enabling basic hence the crashes, pass...Still want to isolate it..


If any one has a list of roms in general that are known good dumps, that would be useful too..





Re Altirra, a just incase I've missed it question?

Is there any easy way to scan through memory for graphic data ie if you wanted to rip a game map data wise.


I'm too stupid and old in the tooth these days to write an adjustable display list for all the relevant modes and all that goes with it...


Failing that, I'd imagine Ominvore etc would do it direct from disk...Sadly not so handy if the data is crunched on the disk..


I just ask as the debugger in Altirra is just way too over my head so I don't know what a lot of the commands do (yeah I know there's a help for commands option) :)


Just in case sitting in there is something like it?


If not then there's bound to be another way and if anyone can suggest one I'd appreciate it..


Its not that I'm likely to do much with the data that is ground breaking but its a feature I loved from the Action replay on C64 & Amiga and used it for pictures etc..

Bit cheeky...But, has anyone got a spare 800 space bar (not XL)?

I managed to break mine (don't ask) and glued it back together but it just looks wrong, its the only blemish on the 800 apart from the colouring..


I know there are replacement keyboards from BEST but the cost is out of my league and as the computer still works fully and its merely a cosmetic repair I can't seriously condone the cost..


As said, a bit cheeky and simply a just in case type of post..



Mediator..Hard and weird :)

Was playing this today and found it frustrating as I did in the day so decided to sort out inf lives for player one...


Don't work, that does not make the game easier that much as what you have to do is cryptically told in the instructions (but not too weird)


For anyone else I found a walk through of the game on video but unless I'm asked I'll just post the cheat as watching it played isn't as fun as at least doing it yourself, cheat or not..


Cheat is for Altirra but as it follows the Atari800 Win format I'm sure with a possible extn name change it will work with that...


Edit: Unrar and load via the Cheat interface on the top menu..

Just met CWC, one of the forum guys..

Really nice bloke, popped over to see him tohave a natter and swap a couple of bits.


He made me a cracking cup of tea and we chatted all things Atari and beyond, he was also very kind and helpful regarding my daughter.


Hope you get the pro sys sorted..


Really nice to have met you
