This image was made for the "Save The Earth" demo I made for the 20years anniversary of the Atari STe.

Normally this machine can only display 320x200 pixels on screen, using 16 colors chosen from a 4096 colors palette.

In the demo I'm using a special display mode that allows 416x200 (wide-screen display) with a full palette change each scan-line, which explains why this picture has more than 16 colors in total.

This picture is a pixel recreation of an Atari STe motherboard, displayed during a sequence showing how an Atari STe is built.

Lovely!
And I'm happy to say that since yesterday I'm an owner of a 520STe. :)

Nice :)
If you add a bit of memory, you should be able to run the demo! At least on the STe it's easy - plug and play :)

I actually discovered that the STe is fitted with 4mb memory. Happy times!

Do you happen to know a good way to write msa-images to floppy? (I don't have a DOS computer)

Well, assuming you have access to a machine that can write normal floppies in MS-DOS format, then what you can do is to save the MSA file on a floppy, then on the STe you run the original MSA.PRG program from another floppy, you select MSA -> DISK option, and it will load the entire MSA file in memory (because you have 4 megs) and then will create/format/write the destination floppy to the original format of the MSA "floppy" file.

Thanks, did not realize, but yeah I guess it took me about as much time as people copying the bibles by hand on their parchments :)
