Also the GP32 (And Pocket PC) has a brilliant Atari ST emulator and runs so many of these games perfect.

I remember that, hours of fun listening to the digitised speech!

Well, maybe not hours, but a fair bit of time - coming from a C64 to proper speech mad a big impression on me!

Ahhhh the ST... where do I start! A 1040 STe should do most things you'd want. A 2nd disk drive or a hard drive would be useful if you plan on doing much MIDI stuff.

Games wise, in addition to what's already been listed, I'd add:
- Millenium 2.2
- Deuteros
- Utopia
- Midwinter
- Realms
- Hunter
- Carrier Command

although most of these are available on the Amoeba too. :wink:

Demo's wise, I'd certainly recommend the Synery Megademo (can't remember it's full title!!??)

Also "The Ultimate Music Demo" by P.H.F. - this contains practically every ST chip tune from game or demo, but the highlight is the intro sequence which includes a 20-minute long medley of the greatest chip tunes from the STs history, accompanying a slide-show of the history of the ST demo/music scene. It's a joy to behold!
