New SainT! - March 13,2001 by JoseQ
A new version of SainT, an Atari ST emulator, has been released. You can download version 0.91b from the Emulator Download Page. This is the second public release, and it already takes care of a few bugs that needed to be cleaned out before the next release. There's also some improvements with compatibility so check it out and see if it works with your favorite ST software.

I love the atari st :)

about my page... I packed it up because of the whole attitude on the web of late (obviously). I only had that site because of my extreme interest in the scene and preservation of what will never be made new again. Amiga is currently ramping up thier new Amiga technology, which may or not be a pipe dream, depening on if you work for them or not (ouch sorry Amiga ;) and a certain individual known as Gary Peake seems to belive he is the reborn crusader for Amiga as he is actively trying to shut down any and every amiga preservation site out there, he is responsible for the closing of Ninja's AGA World and has tried several times to shut down Godflesh's FTP (which Goldflesh assures will never happen). I congratulate Godflesh on his big balls and wish him continued success. I don't have time in my life to worry about *any* chance of any legal problems, despite the fact I don't think Mr Peake has a legal pot to piss in. How does Amiga have any say what software written by other companies (some of which has been released to the public) is released or distributed.

there are other reasons... Napster comes to mind, and other newer technology emulation software. ie capcom, dreamcast, playstation etc.. hell a system shouldn't be emulated untill it's retro IMO, this has drawn way too much attention to the emulation scene and seeing as how I consider myself a 'retro' gamer I wish all the newer stuff would stop development and wait untill the time is right. Maybe the companies that make this hardware may actully want some money from it??? :O gee maybe...

also as a muscian (music teacher in fact for over 15 years, theory, strings, composistion) I think Napster is totally wrong as a *free* service... c'mon people bands aren't going to make albums for you to listen to for free! I love the idea of napster they just need to compensate the artist (not the @#*&$ record compies!)

I had not one other amiga site link me up in the 4 months that I ran my site... not sure why, I requested it, bad email links? whatever, that was frustrating in itself too but all in all 'not' a reason for leaving.

I want to apologize for removing my site instantly without word (besides the note on the board) I probably shouldn't have done that. Just a bad day. I guess worrying about the legalty of what I was doing and seeing what was happening in the emu world (amiga and arcade) kinda was the last straw :(((

At some point I would like to come back with either all of my HDFs or just the ones that are legal, or ones which have been officially released by the software companies like BTTR offers.

In any case I'm highly depressed about the entire emulation scene and to make matters worse when my hard drive fried a few weeks ago my latest win98 install does not allow for my hotrod to work and my new ps2 to usb adapter for it fails as well :O woe is me... could it get any worse...

flack jacket in place for those napster and new emulation fans...

I've got an idea. Remember that your HDFs were uploaded to Godflesh's FTP occasionally? Why don't you just upload any new HDFs you make to the FTP for the time being? Sounds like a good idea really.

I just realised something else as well. We never did get to solve the "Hook" problem, did we? Damn...

Well, thanks for the long and understanding explanation, Stein. :) I don't remember reading a note from you on the message board the last time I checked (which was when the last message was posted on there) though. Anyway, about your Amiga bit: I agree with everything you said and I'm starting to think that Gary Peake is a selfish, corporate arsehole who is basically acting like he wants us Amiga fans to completely forget about the past and only concentrate on the future. Well, I'm sorry Gary "Geek", but nearly all of us reckon that the Amiga scene was far, far better and more interesting way back in the late 80's and early 90's, when a lot of memorable games, magazines, machines and peripherals came out. Today's Amiga scene (as in the new Amigas, the new unoriginal games, the many Amiga ports of old PC/console games, and the unknown wannabe-developer/publisher companies) is so UNINTERESTING and the reason it's not getting talked about by absolutely everyone in the UK and US and all that is because NOTHING Amiga-related is available off the shelf anymore (it's all mail-order material only, sorry), just like Acorn-related stuff isn't off-the-shelf material either. I subscribed to the Amigadev.net mailing list (the "general amiga discussions" bit only of course) last week in the hope that I can send a personal message to that bastard Peake and ask him who does he think he is trying to completely destroy the 'classic' Amiga scene in the hope that we'll all be forced to talk about their "new" stuff only from now on. Although he mentioned in the letter that was displayed on Ninja's AGA World that it was the games companies who were complaining about their material being available for free, but how do we know he's telling the truth here?

I bet it sure takes some waggling and bribing and serious discussion to make games companies finally agree to make some (let alone all) of their games publicly available for free, though. I wonder how BTTR, ALE and Ami Sector One and Jaybee (the guy behind "Amiga In A Box") do it exactly?

Did Stein tell you or anyone else exactly why he decided to get rid of his HDFs page for good? It was a great site!!! He didn't even report the reason on the main page!! Hell, it just disappeared, just like that! His message board still exists, but that's a mere ghost-town now.

I think it was related to me getting rid of my ROMs.
