  1. Selling some Atari ST games I don't have attachment to: Stationfall SOLD Starcross SOLD Suspended SOLD Manhunter New York Karateka Forgotten Worlds Action Fighter Looking for $50 each for the Infocom games and Manhunter New York, $20 for Karateka, plus shipping. Forgotten Worlds and Action Fighter are free, just pay shipping. I'm happy to consider offers and will discount if purchasing multiple items. Stationfall, Starcross, Suspended, Manhunter NY and Karateka are all in excellent condition. I'm the original owner on them and boxes and materials are in great shape, almost like new. Includes full sets of extras including the patch in Stationfall. The only issues are the cardboard map in Suspended is slightly bent in one section and the disk label on Karateka is damaged (I don't remember what happened 35+ years ago). The Manhunter NY disk labels have glue discoloration which is normal for disks of that age and label type. Starcross and Suspended include hint books but I don't know if the invisible text is readable. Some of the hints have been hi-lighted but have faded over time. Forgotten Worlds and Action Fighter are secondhand and in at best fair condition. Forgotten Worlds seems to be missing its second disk and doesn't have any paperwork. Action Fighter has its disk and registration card but no manual. All disks except Starcross boot. Starcross gives TOS Error #35 so I'm thinking it may have gone bad. Tested loading on a 1040STE with 4MB memory. Everything gets packed with bubble wrap and/or packing paper for safe delivery. I generally use USPS for shipping. Feel free to make a reasonable offer for the whole bundle or a subset. I can take PayPal or Venmo. Lastly, I sell on eBay under forbidden-planet if you want to see past sales of toys and other items. Cheers!
  2. Good progress! The 162PZXQ.IMG is working ok for me in High res but crashing when switching from Low to Medium res. Also, it looks like it's trying to access drive A: when changing resolutions and gives the standard disk error dialog. Canceling instead of retrying is followed by the crash. I put a blank disk in and didn't get the error dialog but it went straight to the crash. I'm using Hatari v2.3.0 configured for STE with 4MB of memory.
  3. Jumping in a bit late here but here's my thoughts. Probably the main sore point for me in the vanilla desktop is the text viewer. Having some basic line up/down and page up/down navigation plus simple searching ("/" style like in less) would be nice. Fixing text viewing of more than 40 columns in low res. mode so it line wraps instead of clipping would also be good. A final viewer enhancement would be to detect if the file looks like a binary format and display a hex view instead of just garbage characters. Checking a readme or other text file is a pretty common activity that I don't really want to load up 1st Word, Everest, QED, etc. Having a built in text editor would be nice to have but not essential. Seems mostly useful when trying to bootstrap a system. As others have mentioned, a terminal emulator would be handy. Really helpful when setting up a bare system if you don't have a floppy drive on your Mac or PC. The VT52 emulator accessory looks like it's only 6kB but it would grow in size with the addition X/Y/Z-modem support plus any UI additions for port settings. Flash is over 100kB but that's much more features than needed for a basic terminal. There must be something in between out there that can be a starting point. In any case, thanks PLM for looking working on this.
  4. Hi SainT / RetroHQ, I'm interested in a cased LynxSD cartridge. Please add me to the list for one unit if it's still open for new orders. Thanks!
  5. Please put me down for 1 unit if they're still available. I have a Lynx II so I'd like the cased version. Thanks!
