  1. It's probably a dns issue. Maybe the change hasn't propagated all the way since I still see the board is under maintenance message. Funnily enough I use google dns.
  2. I am curious as to where you see the SCSI port. If you pose at 10:41 you'll clearly see the 19-pin ACSI port.
  3. Did you also see the brochure?
  4. Or if you want a more similar experience to THEC64, you could get a raspberry pi, one of the various atari st 3d printed cases and install Rastari (or BeePi for a more modern ST experience).
  5. You ll have to wait for Cj to port wings of death and lethal xcess for some great shooting action. Best played with the original ym2149 sounds though tmfx isn't bad either.
  6. There is always zombie apocalypse by stax
  7. That is completely incorrect though. Actually if it were in ROM it would run slower because ram is quite a bit faster than rom. Assembly is the preferred way to program 8, 16 and early 32-bit systems because it will be much much faster than basic, c, Pascal etc. Using anything else is basically a trade off between time, speed and what is acceptable performance.
  8. I don't know much about Amiga, but it seems to me like you want a program launcher. Assuming you are running regular TOS, not Magic or MiNT, you have a few options. Check here at the programstarter section to see if anything suits your needs: https://www.atariuptodate.de/en/util/
  9. It's not an Atari though, it's an Amiga that runs EmuTOS. EmuTOS can probably be ported to anything. An Atari ST like computer has to be more than a port of EmuTOS. I'd argue this is equally an Atari then: https://github.com/kelihlodversson/pTOS
  10. Well, we live in the era of the revived home computer. There's the raspberry pi, the orange pi and any other pi you can think of. They are the very definition of a home computer, in both user base and use cases, if you ignore the gaming in a non retro way part. Whether the VCS will be (? on be) something like a home computer, I'd guess yes. It's definitely not a console. I've said before, that a ryzen mini pc at that price is a great offer. I just wonder what kind of single thread performance it will have. As for a case, I think a TT mini case, or a XEGS one (without the pastels) would be really nice. I am not a bif fan of how the original VCS looked. As for the OS, I read an article the other day on customizing linux. That would be nice. https://hackaday.com/2019/10/07/a-bootable-greeting-for-the-xenomorph-in-your-life/
  11. This reminds me a lot of Attackwave by Paradize. It doesn't seem too bad.
  12. The main problem with a modern atari is would be that many of the core concepts of GEM were flawed and i don't know how much of it would be fixable without breaking compatibility. Having said that Magic and Mint +xaaes + desktop have made a quite beautiful system.
  13. Falcons nowadays are more expensive than when they were new. It's funny, because if the were as sought after back then, we wouldn't be talking about the Atari VCS but we'd have youtubers comparing the the Falcon SE with whatever overpriced thing Apple is releasing these days.
