Since PCM audio DMA wasn't really common on STE back then, this issue was not at all documented and most people didn't even know they could ask for an IC exchange (which was possible).

So far all STEs that I tested are okay, but not my Mega STE.

So at last it explains why I had those nasty audio clicks when I coded my VGA intro on Mega STE.

So I found a new thing that was poorly documented on the Atari STE

There are faulty shifters!
(this is the video chipset)

The C300588, found in most STEs, is okay

The C301712 found in Mega STE and maybe later STEs is mostly faulty and generate audio cracks on PCM DMA audio when blitter transfers are in progress.

There is at least 2 revisions of the C301712, the later one seems to be fixed.

Testing this turntable I was given, with a brand new cartridge

(yeah the disc is really used, F+ condition)

On April 1st, 2011, stunned viewers of the French TV channel Nolife discovered that the channel's daily show "101%" had been hacked by Razor 1911.

Yes, it was shown this way on TV, with the starting black screen simulating a broadcast crash :)

It was shown in three different versions (this is the second one with the fake NSFW review).

The intro also gave a "cracked" code that granted access to the whole replay service (Nolife Online) during one full day.

Here's The Party poll reposted because it seems people discovered it a bit late and I can't extend the previous one :)

Which of these demos released at The Party 1991, 30 years ago, do you like most?

@Truck @k not sure either but there's another TP91 release with shadebobs. I think it was an effect included in Deluxe Paint, I remember my friend doing special pixel effects with it.

├ça y est Raccoon a recoll├ę les morceaux et il est dans le secret du P├Ęre No├źl (faut dire qu'il y avait des rumeurs de complot ├á l'├ęcole).

Premi├Ęre question : "- Mais c'est qui ce cadeau-l├á alors ?"
"- Bah c'est mamie et moi"
"- Ah ok et toi tu as mis combien dedans ?"
­čśĹ

@k Yeah that's what I need to check. And the demo's contents too, I don't want Twitch to strike my channel :p

(else I can also stream on Peertube, already done this, after 80+ viewers the P2P sharing between viewers works amazingly well)

@k @Truck Also it's worth noting that Silents released Global Trash, Global Trash 2 and Hardwired in 8 months ­čÖâ

@k @Truck @k @Truck I'm thinking of streaming all the releases, maybe on Friday night? But I need to check them all on my Amigas... I don't have a 500 but a 500+ and a 1200 so I don't know if they will run at all.

@k @Truck
tbh I never understood what Amiga users found in Odyssey ­čśů .
And to be fair nearly all TP91 releases are very good.

But all Amiga demos looked more or less the same (3D 3D 3D shadebobs 3D) and Hardwired brought this "videoclip" feeling with a bit of a story, a beginning, and end with credits and at half the demo it breaks the "Amiga demo template" and unrolls effects in a whole new way.

@Truck @loke We are a lot that couldn't afford travelling far back then :) My first party was the Crystal Summer Convention in 1992 (near Paris).

Then I went to CSC2 and all The Place to Be that took place in the South of France in the 1990s.

Then I went on hiatus of the scene and came back at Breakpoint 2008.

Actually my English was so bad before 2000 that I didn't even consider going to foreign parties ┬»\_(Ńâä)_/┬»

Exactly 30 years ago, a huge demoparty took place for the first time in Aars, Denmark:
The Party!

And... it became legendary in the history. (thread)
