ST Stuff Page
ST Recasing StuffIf I've promised to add something to this section and it's not here, keep bugging me. I'll get round to it.
Hopefully my online guide of Atari connectors and pinouts will save lots of people asking for the common ones on the newsgroups, and tearing hair out looking for the weirder ones.
Alternative monitor connector
Rather than bother with those annoying 13 pin din connector to my monitor,
I've built an adaptor that allows me to use the more easily available (and
easier to solder) 15 way D connector. A female socket is used on the machine
end, and males for the leads themselves, again for cost reasons.
Anyway, the pins run like this :
1 : Red 9 : Horizontal Sync 2 : Green 10 : Vertical Sync 3 : Blue 11 : Composite Sync 4 : Ground 12 : Clock Select/General 5 : Monochrome Purpose Output 6 : Mono Detect/Clock In 13 : 12V Pullup/Reserved 7 : Ground 14 : Not Connected 8 : Audio Out 15 : Audio In
For most software, you might want to take a look in the src.doc.ic.ac.uk archives, including a mirror of umich. You might prefer to use a proper ftp program rather than a www version.
On the other hand, if you don't see what you want, the you might want to see what has got to offer.
For assorted technical stuff, you can go to Simon Hammetts Assembler page . Much useful stuff on assembler, cookies, system resources and that type of gubbins
Newsgroups worth reading include comp.sys. atari.st, comp.sys.atari.st.tech and comp.sys.atari.programmer
