Absolutely - the STacy has a built in color monitor port on its back plane.

and congratulations on owning a STacy! :)

PS Don't forget, there is a surprising number of games and apps that work even in monochrome.

Regular ST monitor port is on the back. Glad to know I'm not the only STacy owner here (STacy4/20 here)

BTW, I'm working on a screen replacement for which I'll post info when it's done. Done meaning zero flakiness or bugs.

Yep, there are a few of us around - I've been doing lots of things to mine. :)

I've only tried color on it - will a mono monitor work as well? Thanks.

I'll be interested in reading that post - I've already updated mine with a new El sheet. There is a thread here at AtariAge.

There are several sites where you can download updated games from:

http://www.klapauzius.net/

http://dbug.kicks-ass.net/klaz/

http://atari.8bitchip.info/index.html

Poke around there, you'll find lots...

If you've got at least TOS 1.04, then floppy's are cross-compatible.

I'm going a bit more gonzo for mine. Replacing the LCD with a 640x400 Planar EL panel.

Thanks! :)

Hi, I have a Stacy with a defect LCD  display , a band of horizontal stripes on the lower half of the screen.

I assume that this cannot be fixed. I tried by pushing on the rubber strips but that didnt help. So I wonder if its possible to use another display  ???

Thanks

Jos

You can hook the STacy up to an external color Atari monitor like the SC1224 if you have one. That will also
establish whether or not the striping problem is just related to monochrome mode or not...
