Mega STE Tos 2.06 Game Compatibility Listing

Recommended Posts

I wanted to start this since Tempest was talking about the best Atari gaming rig for game compatibility. I wanted to list the games that I have in fact run successfully on my Mega STE with TOS 2.06. In a few cases you may see an entry noting I used a Tos 1.0 boot disk in order to play the game. Only two games so far I have used this technique on.

 

I will try to update it with games that don't work also.

 

This list should be pretty accurate. I don't guarantee it 100% :D Just because it isn't on here doesn't mean it won't work, probably I just haven't tested it yet.

WOW! Thanks! This is very useful information!

 

You should start an ST Compatibility FAQ. Something like the Falcon one that's out there now. I think people would like to know what games don't work with each TOS version (might be simpler than listing what games do work).

Updated the list with a few titles.

 

Tempest you should be happy to know Ultima 3 and 4 were added. Haven't checked any other Ultima's yet.

Did you run the 24bit program first and then try Ultima III?

24bit? Is that a compatibility tool? Nope! Where can I get it?

Yep.

 

I attached it and a few other TT tools to this message.

 

You can use it a couple ways. Put it in an auto folder on a disk. Boot the disk when you want to test 24bit mode on a game. After you get to the desktop then put in your game disk a launch the game.

 

If the game boots from an auto folder, you can make a copy of the diskette (I wouldn't mess with your original) and put the 24bit.prg in the auto folder. Make sure you use a tool to set the auto folder boot order or do what I do. Just remove the files from the auto folder and then put them back into it in the order you want them to boot.

 

If its a boot sector game your going to have problems. I don't know if 24bit survives a reset, but if it does you could try booting 24 bit first and then putting in the boot sector game disk and doing a ctr-alt-del. Worth a try.

Ok I tried it and it says that my TT Ram isnt empty. I putit into an auto folder at start up but I can't tell if it loaded or not.

 

BTW is there a way to bypass that really long pause after the RAM tests at start up. It's annoying.

Never saw that error. I know when you run 24bit you lose access to the TT memory. You trying to run it from the desktop, I believe it only works from an auto folder at bootup.

 

To skip the mem test or the delay after it hit the space bar. I think there was some utility to configure the delay after the memory test.

 

I am assuming you are aware that you need to hold the alt key as the floppy gets accessed during powerup to allow booting floppies (that don't have boot sectors). I just hold it upon seeing the floppy light come on. If the mem tests come up (non boot sector disks) just hit the space bar.

 

If its an auto folder booting disk you need to do the alt key or it won't actually load it (it boots the hard drive if there is one). So if you didn't do that on the 24bit program when you put it in the auto folder of a floppy that is your problem. You will know if it loads since it displays some information upon running.
