Guten Tag,

... and now ... for something completely different...

The demo uses a FPGA based video hardware modification (ultraBooST) for the Atari 1040 STE created by us.

The hardware is able to create new screen modes with up to 3 layers each 256 colors out of 16,78mio colors, chunky modes, helps out the 68k with 3d math and flat poly filling/line drawing and in the end all is outputted to HDMI.

Of course the demo will not run on a standard Atari STE.

To watch the demo at your home we created a special version of Steem (Windows only) which is able to emulate all ultraBooST hardware features... A 68k library is included too if you want to do something with it.

Want more infos how it works and how it is done?, early development previews and pictures? Check: http://ultradev.ultrafex.de/ultraboost.html

Steem and api page can be found here (not done yet):
If you want to watch it on Steem check this page!


This was planned for sommarhack 2022 unforunately we couldn't make it in time :/

the amount of work & skill to build such hardware extension is just mind blowing. Congrats!
