  1. I agree. The Australian market, back in the day, made being an Atari ST owner difficult enough. Finding a user group, fellow users out in the wild, and even a newsagent that stocked your favourite ST magazine was a chore (but also exciting when you found one). A repeat of that would inevitably make its non-sustainable product again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Have you tried Disk 006 from the Automation Compacted Disks collection? http://steem.atari.st/automation.htm Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. As an alternative location for a Falcon PSU and VGA adapter, you can buy them from here, respectively: https://centuriontech.eu/product-category/atari/ http://gossuin.be/index.php/shop Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. As PLM pointed out, the Eiffel adapter is a good option. I use them on my Megas and TT. I recommend the ones being sold here: http://gossuin.be/index.php/shop Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I just tried this on real hardware (firstly I must say, this is brilliant rework of the original) but found it was more difficult to collect the lantern highlighted in the screen below. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. To me, number 3 looks like he could getting away with singing Jailhouse Rock. I think #6 matches the photo the best. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I can confirm 3.1 works fine though Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. @dafivehole, since you're in the US, where component video is more common, one option is the use of a SCART RGB to Component Video transcoder such as this one. https://www.amazon.com/SPECIALTY-AV-SCART-Component-Converter-Genesis/dp/B004XSSDPO/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1CGJS5R64LOA3&keywords=scart+to+component+transcoder&qid=1561863079&s=gateway&sprefix=scart+to+com%2Caps%2C400&sr=8-2 Add an Atari ST SCART RGB cable, and you can have a sharp image on common displays that support component video (in particular, the 240p/480i signal though). It's what I used in the photos attached.
  9. I have had a few Commodore monitors with the faulty switch. I've bought them with packing tape, Blu-Tak and other methods to keep the switch pressed in (all of which were messy). If you don't want the expense or expertise of replacing the switch, or a messy/sticky solution, then I suggest using tile wedge spacers like these: https://www.amazon.com/QEP-10285-Tile-Wedge-Spacers/dp/B000FK1UTK?psc=1&SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q&tag=duckduckgo-d-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B000FK1UTK It's cheap, clean and doesn't cause any damage. Simply pressed the power button in, and insert one of the edges between the button and its surrounding, and it will stay in. Pull the wedge out to turn off - simple!
  10. It might be worth checking this video out: https://youtu.be/JG_9W-LzWXc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have the Magic Sac Plus so reading original Mac disks will be impossible for me. I’m hoping to get a setup where I can use a virtual Mac on one side, along with disk images from a Gotek. Hopefully, conversions can be done in software against images rather than using original hardware that I don’t have. Will need to sit down and think this one through.. Btw, do you have a converted copy of the system disks? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I would recommend watching this comparison video that looks at the Framemeister, OSSC and this generic convertor. https://youtu.be/lHoOKLWIMKU I’ve tried many options and I’ve finally settled on the OSSC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I think these were in short supply at one stage but in recent months there has been a huge increase in availability (being open source, it appears someone from China is now mass producing them). I picked up a second one from eBay and the quality is as good as the one I got from the UK. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have been using this convertor for years with a Mega ST which doesn’t have a modulator. It’s the cable makes the difference. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Which Sofia do you have - RGB or DVI? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
