  1. My Atari computer is mothballed - in boxes with all the disks. I know it works, but I rarely take it out. All the stuff I do now is on emulators (I prefer Atari800Win).
  2. RIP to both Mr. Kassar and Mr. Woakes!
  3. Wow - RIP, seemed like a good guy, I think I briefly interacted with him on RMT stuff. I remember his RMT work, it was amazing. Sad he's gone
  4. This thread is quite drama filled - what's the Cliffs Notes version? Was it made available to download (seems against author's wishes)?
  5. Hoping you can recover them! I still have all my old disks in a closet in my house...not sure if they would be recoverable. Made some programs as well (primarily basic), one is machine code - never finished. I was never much of a coder anyway, but still had fun trying!!! Good luck!
  6. So I'm a little dense - this emulates SID or is this actually POKEY creating SID-like sounds?
  7. Seems not to be working on Atari800WinPLus - anyone else having an issue or are most on Altirra?
  8. Man, I loved those fuschia colored Verbatim disk sleeves...I have a ton of them still, wonder if they are still readable?? Cool stuff - it's great that these programmers still have (and share) their code...thank you!
  9. How are you guys converting the RMT output to .mp3? I'd love to capture both audio and video from an emulator, but Camstudio tried to put too much nonsensical SW on my work PC, so I won't install it.
  10. You are too kind! If I'm ever on the other side of the pond, in Poland, I'll buy you a beer. Maybe even virtually!
  11. Wow - I am following this thread closely as I loved OP's work on DK and DK Jr. Really great stuff, much appreciation from a long time Atari owner / user!!!
  12. Oh right - I did notice that music speed, and I played with it to no apparent effect. I'll dig into that - thank you! My Polish isn't so good I'm an English speaking American, I used to speak Italian and French, but that won't help me much with Softsynth!!! :)
  13. Pretty cool to see Tom Hudson posting here - back in the day ANALOG was THE magazine for me (I liked Antic, but loved ANALOG). Many nights with my brother typing in the machine code games they would publish like Harvey Wallbanger and Livewire! Even better, he's still involved with the Atari scene. Doesn't get much better than that!!
  14. I'm a tinkerer, but I really struggled with Softsynth. I'm absolutely getting RMT, even to the point where I can experiment (albeit, very simplistic as opposed to what you or others are doing). I like the RMT interface, it makes a lot of sense. For me, I want the experience and the output to be something that would be achievable on a real Atari 8-bit machine. That's why I've avoided using stereo mode on RMT, even though it's cool. If memory serves, Softsynth is executable on an 8-bit machine, so I'd love to get into it more, but it seems a bit complicated and I don't think there's a manual in English (although I could be wrong).
