Atari STE and games, overview
« on: 06-07-2012, 15:25:56 »
 I'm trying here to make as possible complete list of games using STE enhanced features,  STE only games  and ST games not working on STE machines.  Please add what you know about this, if possible with complete infos - what 'E.F.' is used, and similar.


  Games using STE enhancements :

Abrevs. :
ADMA - audio DMA
EPAL - extended palette (4096 col.)
HWS - hardware scrolling
BLIT - blitter (not strictly STE feature)

****************

Another World - ADMA
Beastlord  - EPAL

Carlos - ADMA
Chaos Engine - HWS
Creatures - ADMA

Dragon's Lair - EPAL
Dragon's Lair II - EPAL
Dragon's Lair III - EPAL
Dragon's Lair Escape from the Singe's Castle - EPAL

Elvira the Arcade Game - BLIT

First Samurai - EPAL, intro only

Magic Boy -  ADMA

Nicky Boom - ADMA
Nicky 2 - ADMA
No Limit 2 - ADMA, EPAL

Lethal Xcess   ?

Space Ace - EPAL
Space Ace II - EPAL

Starball  - ADMA

Stardust     ?

Stone Age   ?

Substation    ?

Zool  - HWS, BLIT

There is for sure much more, especially those using EPAL .


****************

STE only :

Obsession
Pacman OE
Sleepwalker


*********

Not working on STE:
This includes not TOS version caused problems, only
games writing to bad locations.

Note:  some games may fail on 4MB machines because lame code.
Many of cracks fail on higher TOS versions, so please test with
original or Pasti images if possible.

Hyperforce - overshot in palette writing loop
Grand Monster Slam - overshot in palette writing loop
Nightdown  -  writing to Screen pointer does nothing on ST, on STE bus error.

There are some hints about how to solve running on STE in case of problem.

Hi PP,
regarding Captive : your excellent adapted download is v1.2 -will you also make v1.0 ? Which had support for the DMA audio hardware (so I've read online). I wonder what their reasons where for dropping the DMA support for v1.2?? Also, I believe neither v1.0 or v1.2 actually used the extended palette however, which is odd. This is an odd game regarding STE support.  :-\

Cheers, Steve

V 1.2 supports STE extended palette. I can look V 1.0 if you give me where to DL it. Btw. that about audio DMA seems very unlikely.

Sorry about the late reply, I've been ill this week .. I can attempt to MSA my two floppies and then upload the files for you? But I'm assuming they'll be protected and that won't actually work  :-\ Not sure.
