I would also be interested in 1 or 2, but would really want a shell/case of some kind.  Perhaps there will be time to figure that stuff out.  :)

No. The PCB with the improved (smaller) layout is still too big for a regular case/shell. But the new shell now fits into the Atari800 so the lid can be closed.

OK, we have decision on the shell now. The quality that we can deliver with bioberns own printer exceeds what can be obtained from commercial 3D printers for twice the price.

Hence we'll print them ourselves and the price will be 15 EUR per shell.

Hello Peter

 

What's the functional difference between The!Cart and the Ultimate Cart?  I own an Ultimate Cartridge and it seem to do all I need it to do, but I'm no expert.

 

Sincerely

 

Mathy

Hi Mathy, a detailed comparison of the different storage solutions and their properties is available here:

if you already own Robin's great cart and are satisfied with it, you probably won't need The!Cart.
That does not mean you shouldn't buy it of course - it has such a cool menu system ;-)

I personally prefer The!Cart. It is instantly starting bigger rom files (no loading). The menu of The!Cart is the best menu ever seen on a8 and it supports ATR loading (limited but cool enough to be functional for some games I love to play like Johnys Trouble and Cropky).

Definitely a must have.

  • Shell: 3D Print model offered for free to print it yourself. We offer printed shells as shown below also for 15 EUR. The PCB does not fit into standard Atari shells!

 

Do you happen to know what material/process is being used to print those?

We use the "Bernhard in his basement with the Felix DIY Printer he got as a present for his last birthday" process :-). As it turns out 3d printing is a handcraft and you get better as you practice. Here you see first iterations evolving left to right:

And this is how it looks today. Honestly I have not seen a comparable result from any other print option. They right temperature and speed even yields shiny sides.

And it's a perfect fit for the PCB. 
 

Important: Esp. for XL computer I highly recommend a shell (own print or ours) because the metal lid of the cartridge port can kill the PCB (short circuit).

Hello!

 

If I remember correctly, there was also a mentioning of 3D printed shells for the older The!Carts on the ABBUC JHV. Are these available yet?

Yes, you can get them independent of the V2 run. Just PM biobern.

FYI: I'm busy currently and replies to the huge amount of PMs regarding the run will take some time. Thanks for your understanding.
