A few weeks back, I picked up an Atari STE and a BBC Master, as part of a trading deal. I did have a lovely Master 512 (with 186 pc co pro, that I sold to Rob and regretted it ever since!)

For an early Christmas box, Rob sent me a raspberry pi zero internal co processor kit, that can act as all the different bbc co processors, arm, 186, cambridge co pro, 6502 turbo etc

I don't know a vast amount about the ST, but I did fit a flash floppy kit.

Good to use with a QVME card.

Oh... I always assumed that, native in STE and TT and with a VME-Adapter also in a MegaST.

I think it's just the ones with the three box design.

Hi,

I had a QVME, which I had connected to an Atari MegSTE and Atari TT030.

The Atari MegaSTE and QVME have been sold as separate items, the Q68 seemed very comparable to the QVME in my opinion.

The Atari TT030 developed a fault, which does not switch on. I will get around to fixing someday, probably power supply fault or a chip has done down.

To connect a QVME to the Atari MegaST, a VME adapter has to used, which are very scarce,as is the QVME.

Connection to a Atari STFM, STE requires a CPU-VME adapter, I have one somewhere, for a mono Atari graphcs card, but I doubt it would work with the QVME.

I did think of copying the QVME, but there are still copyright issues with it, so I did not bother.

I have some Atari QL Emulator boards: Extended 4, Mode 8, which can be connected to Atari Mega ST, F series, which are waiting to be installed in Atari computers I have. But I am not sure if anyone uses an Atari QL Emulator now.


Regards,

Derek

Nice, pick up's I still have my Atari STE from back in the day. Used to love playing Jimmy White and F29 on it. One day I'll get my ass in gear and look for some War games for you too :)
