    ST BASIC type-in games.
  1. Bit of a noob question here. I know that one can generally see a difference if one were to run a PAL game on a NTSC machine and vice versa. But does anyone know if similar issues would arise with other types of software. For example, I live in the US, but suppose I bought an assembler program on a floppy from ebay.co.uk. Would that assembler run relatively normally on my NTSC machine? Specifically, I have a stock 1040ST and I want a copy of DevpacST. I also want to only use a physical copy, and not use emulation or an UltraSatan or anything like that. Thanks in advance for the help!
  2. Ah! This one is in Fast BASIC. I haven't tried that one, yet. It seemed pretty popular in the UK, however. It sounds worth looking up as I understand it had an in-line assembler.
  3. No. I hate to come out as a weirdo, but I just save everything to my program recorder. I'm obsessed with my 1010 and XC-12. I have all my cassettes in a shoe box! LOL The few ST BASIC type-ins I've done I've saved to diskette.
  4. ST User, as TGB1718 turned out to be a pretty decent resource for the early issues. The actual program that he recommend is really cool! Lots of short 5-liners that are impressive, as well.
  5. Thanks, I actually just found Compute!'s First Atari ST book. I review I read in STart said it had several ST BASIC type-ins. It's in the mail as we speak. Looks promising!
  6. This is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you, I really appreciate it! And thanks to everyone else for offering tips.
  7. Thanks, I'll try the Atari ST Gazette. If anyone comes across any books are specific issues, I would appreciate it.
  8. So, my hobby is actually typing in BASIC listings from books and magazines. I find it calming and meditative. Obviously, I mostly do this on the 8-bits where resources are plenty. However, I recently picked up an 1040STf with ST BASIC. I realized the best BASIC on the ST is GFA BASIC. But, for some reason I want to give ST BASIC a try. The problem is, I'm having a hard time finding type-in programs for ST BASIC. All the usually Atari magazines, and even ST specific ones, don't seem to have much. Is anyone familiar with any books or specific magazine issues out there that have ST BASIC type-in programs? Thanks in advance!
