Chipmunk serial number website
By Milan Kovac on 2017-03-21

I made web site where Atari users can enter their serial numbers of Atari computers and Atari peripherals (equipment). You can also add pictures of motherboards, cases, stickers...

http://chipmunk.atari.org/

Please use it! If we type enough serial numbers, we can make some conclusion regarding Atari computer production!

Like Mark_G suggested, there is "German tank problem" calculation if you have enough serial numbers in database.

---

Also, if you have any suggestion, please write it here and I will include them first in ToDo list :) than in site.

Also please report any errors on site or in database.

And last, if someone want, I can share PHP source of web site.

Worms released for Falcon060
By The Paranoid on 2016-12-26

Insane of .tSCc. has ported the classic "Worms" game with permission from Team 17 to all Falcons equipped with a CT60. The basis was the disassembly of the 68040 Macintosh version of the game that Insane has worked himself through to port it to the Falcon with an 68060.



The release requires the original Worms data files not included in the download for obvious reasons to actually work.

Nemesis Indicator version 2.0 released!
By Daniel Hedberg on 2014-10-16

This is for all owners of Nemesis accelerated Falcon030 computers.



A few days ago I released a new version (2.0) of the Nemesis Indicator. New in this version is a CPU power saver feature that, when enabled, will turn off the Nemesis after a specified number of minutes of no user activity. Whenever user activity is detected again, the most recent Nemesis state will be restored. Version 2.0 also comes with a configuration CPX for the Atari XControl Panel, a larger selection of indicator graphics, and the complete source code (in assembler and C) for all parts of the Nemesis Indicator.

ATARI landfill dump site to be excavated!
By Atarifreak on 2014-08-01

In September of 1983, Atari is rumored to have dumped literally millions of ET, PAC-MAN, and other cartridges, as well as unsold consoles and other items into a landfill in New Mexico. Now, a film crew is about to do an excavation of the site, perhaps giving some closure to this dark period in ATARI history. Who knows? Maybe some of what is recovered will still be in good shape, and be sold after all!

ST Recover, a new ST disk utility on Windows
By Chris Bertrand on 2012-06-25

ST Recover can read Atari ST floppy disks on a PC under Windows, including
special formats as 800 or 900 KB, and damaged or desynchronized disks, and
produces standard .ST disk image files. Then the image files can be read in
ST emulators such as Hatari, WinSTon or Steem.



The program is free and open source.

You will find it here:

Supervidel prepayment soon
By Nature on 2012-02-28

The prepayment for the SuperVidel is drawing near.
All manufacturing documents have been sent to the manufacturer and we're currently awaiting their quote. This should take 2-3 weeks from now.
Immediately when we get the quote we can set the final prices for the SuperVidel, Svethlana and Extender boards, and the prepayment period will then start.
We hope to stay within the lower price region and we hope to let the payment period be as short as one month, but we can't proceed until we have 90% of all payments (but we will still make 100% of all registered boards).

Registering and paying for more boards will be ok until the prepayment period ends.

Completely new registrations are also welcome.

So start saving now! :)

Just in time to celebrate the new year 2012, the latest version of Hatari has been released ; you can get it on http://hatari.tuxfamily.org/ or directly in http://download.tuxfamily.org/hatari/
Sources are of course available, as well as prebuilt binaries for Windows (if someone can supply an OS X version, it will be added too).
Please note that Hatari is no longer hosted on berlios.de, but on tuxfamily.org.
Small changelog :

- More accurate FDC emulation (correct status bits and command timings, DMA transfer by blocks of 16 bytes, floppy change detection). This should fix a lot of non working games, as well as a few demos.

- Improve shifter (add another method to do 4 pixel hardware scrolling,
better emulation for 0 byte blank line)
- Some fixes to the IKBD emulation
- Better filters and model for sound emulation
- Correct VBL timings in TT monochrome (double clicking works now)
- More cycle accurate Falcon DSP <-> CPU emulation. All the demos that
needed 32Mhz CPU with the old CPU core in Hatari v1.5, work now at
correct 16Mhz with the WinUAE CPU core
- 030 MMU emulation with the WinUAE CPU core
- Debugger improvements : "history" command to list instructions executed before entering debugger.
- Fixed behavior of the Caps Lock key

Fixed Demos :
Overscan Demos and Shforstv.exe by Paulo Simoes (black line at top),
ACF - Just Bugging (FDC), Delirious Demo IV (FDC, shifter),

For best results in STF mode, please use TOS 1.04 (TOS 1.02 is sometimes causing crashes). For STE, use TOS 1.62 or 2.06.

See release-notes.txt for the full changelog.

Thanks to all the people who worked on this version by submitting code,
ideas and bug reports !
