How to get Atari 4160STE to boot into medium resolution


Recommended Posts

With the bug in TOS 1.6, it is a problem with the save desktop routine I believe, so when you 'save desktop' it always saves as low res instead of medium res. There was an auto folder patch to correct the flaw iirc, or you can manually edit the desktop.inf file with a text editor to force it to boot in medium res (you'll need to find the correct line).

I was wrong about my tip about TeraDesk as a solution, as the desktop needs to be at medium resolution to make it run. It can't change the resolution to medium by itself, which I thought it could, for some reason.


But anyhow what you need is STE_FIX.PRG, which you need to put in a folder named AUTO, either on a floppy disk or a hard drive. Then when you save the desktop, in medium resolution, it will be remembered next time you boot up.


STE_FIX.PRG is in the TOSFIXES.ZIP attachment.
