I really wasn't suggesting that they make a new computer, just that since
Richard Miller designed the Falcon and probably has the most insite on the 040
based MicroBox, perhaps he would be willing to share some Falcon information
that most Atari outsiders were not aware of. Perhaps graphic libraries for
MiNT and/or GEM, TOS 040 code for Falcon computers, any source code for the
Falcon utilizing the DSP for uses that haven't been realized by the Falcon
programming community (speech synthesis, recognition, telephony, etc.). If
all that he would be able to offer where a DirectX-type library for MiNT on
Falcon, that would even be good. Does NVDI or Enhancer allow standardized
calls for fast GEM graphic programming? There aren't a slew of games
available that take advantage of all GEM systems with sampled sound and 256 or
better color pallete. I was wondering whether or not this was because there
isn't a set of libraries for GEM game programming. I've yet to see a game
created for MagiCMac, TT, Falcon and 040/060 TOS machines. Perhaps when Fenix
is finally released will we see a unified graphic system for all 030 or
greater TOS machines.
