  2. ------------------
  3. Notes: On a few cores " = L Shift+2, * = ], and ? = not working. CAPITALIZED = type command or action. On most cores, leave the .xxx files name extension off the launch command.
  4.  
  5. Help: I could use help with the MulitComp, and Sinclair QL.
  6.  
  7. ------------------
  8. Atari ST: files ST (disks), VHD
  9.  
  10. ST files config:
  11. Memory: 1MB
  12. TOS:    TOS v1.02 (1987)

  14. Blitter:Off
  15. Viking: Off
  16. Screen: Color
  17. Border: Visible
  18.  
  19. STE files config:
  20. Memory: 4MB
  21. TOS:    TOS v1.62 (1990)
  22. Chipset:STE
  23. Blitter:On
  24. Viking: Off
  25. Screen: Color
  26. Border: Visibile
  27.  
  28. ST (disks)
  29. 1) load ST through OSD
  30. 2) load ST disk 1 in A, disk 2 in B
  31. 3) double click floppy disk drive and launch PRG or TOS
  32. 4) sometimes a soft reset is in order
  33.  
  34. VHD file config:
  35. HDD0:   ST.dbug.Klaz.vhd
  36. Memory: 4MB
  37. TOS:    TOS v1.62 (1989)
  38. Chipset:STE
  39. Blitter:On
  40. Viking: Off
  41. Screen: Color
  42. Border: Visibile
  43.  
  44. VHD
  45. - Launch games on drive D: and E: root, and under D:\KLAZ directory.  Double click to navigate directories as needed.  Atari ST executables have .PRG and .TOS extensions, those are what you want to run.
  46. - For STE games change chipset to STE.
  47.  
  48. Notes: Rename IMG files to VHD. Sometimes a cold reboot is needed for this core currently. For some later VHD files, use TOS v2.06, and Chipset STE.
