    Natami vs Coldari/Atari Coldfire

    The Atari fans will have a new baby, the "Coldari - from Medusa Computer systems"
    or by other name "Atari coldfire project"

    Will we have a new war?
    What do you think?

    Have you had a look at the Suske -IIIC board? It's basically a STE version of Mini Mig. However 619 euros!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I thought mini mig was pricey. Go here to have a look.

    That is a mad price, but still great to see people doing similar things for Atari Fans in parallel to what is happening in the Amiga world.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    It does look impressive from the features. I was looking on the site after you posted the orgiinal post. However it doesn't say much about compatibility. Can it run Falcon and TT software? Or just ST/STE software?

    From what I've read it can Falcon and ST software and will have an updated version of TOS (I'm sure they've missed an s of the end of that).

    It is interesting if it can run Falcon software as those systems were always very rare and command high prices when sold these days, and so will be a good alternative for Atari fans wishing to run Falcon and TT software on real hardware.
