SToid runs on my JXD Game Tablet 2

23 06 2013

I bought a chinese Android gaiming table a while ago. The advantage of it is, that you could place a controll pad on the screen, and then the pad on the left of the tablet works as a pad.

Today I installed SToid. First try did not worked. But then I read that it needs TOS 1.02 US. After that problem was solved I tested the emulator with Ghost’n Gouls and it worked fine.

Recept:
——-

  1. Buy a JXD Game Tablet 2
  2. Install SToid from the google play shop
  3. Connect the Game Tablet via the usb port with your computer
  4. Accept to connect the tablet memory to the computer
  5. Create a folder in a propper directory. I choosed the “roms” direcotry and created a folder called “atarist”
  6. Transfer the tos102us.img file to the atarist folder
  7. Transfer a ST game image of choice to your game tablet
  8. Start SToid
  9. Choose the tos102us.img file in the fileselector
  10. Choose the ST game image in the file selector
  11. Configure the pad and button controll on the screen
  12. Play the ST game and have fun

HxC Floppy Emulator under Windows

9 06 2013

After quite a while I resetup my HxC floppy emulator:

  • HxC Software under Windows
HXC Windows Client
  • USB Cable from the PC to the HxC floppy emulator
  • HxC floppy emulator connected to the floppy bus inside a STE
Atari STE with HxC




When you find a great programm under Linux why not use it under Windows as well

9 06 2013

Before the rise of Linux, the standard programs under Windows where most of the time expensive but great. But now a lot of programs who became popular under Linux are free to download for windows as well.

That’s a change the Open Source movement initiated. The one everybody know is GIMP. But there are some more. I installed digiKam for example today.

DigiKam is a image collection tool. I will use it to transfer my pictures to my flickr account.

First applications

9 06 2013

After setup a Linux Mint system. the first applications I installed were:

  • Guake: A terminal that scrolls down from the top of the screen if you call it
Guake under Linux Mint
Guake under Linux Mint
  • Chrome
Chrome under Linux Mint
After I installed Chrome, the system is damned slow, cauae with only 3 GB memory the sysem swaps all the time. I have to look for a lightweight browser.




First wallpaper

Very important when you set up a new system is the wallpaper of course.

I choose a traditional one 🙂

Linux Mint landed on my desktop

1 06 2013

Today I installed Linux Mint 15 (LM) codename “Olivia”. After playing around some minutes, I decided, that this OS is my favorite desktop OS atm.

Linux Mint

I have Windows 8 installed on my main laptop and Ubuntu 13.10 installed on my NetLap. Now Linux Mint 15 is also installed on my NetLap and I will discover, how many daily tasks I could manage with Linux mint, and what task are better managed with other devices.

The reasons I chose Linux mint were:

  •  In Nemo (Nautilus clone) it’s so easy to get a second window. Simply press F3. In Nautilus (Gnome) and in Explorer (Windows) that’s no possible or more complicated, or I’m to stupid.
  • The controll center is ootb better organized than in Ubuntu. I did not find the autostart configruation in Ubuntu last time I searched for example. in LM it’s ootb simple present.
  • It’s really fast compared to Ubuntu on the same hardware
  • The sound works ootb. Don’t know why it does not work under Ubuntu, cause it did on other installations on the same hardware before.

These were my first impressions. Most imporant, it really makes fun again to work with this machine, something I missed with Ubuntu 13.10 and something that is gone with Windows 8
