Too bad indeed because the coupon expired at 8:00pm *PST*. You could have squeezed it in just under the wire. :(

If I was glued to AA at the time I might have... but  we also need time for cat, wife, food, and other such silly stuff :) travel nighbors etc.

Too old am I, too slow, and my timing to miss is impeccable as ever...

It seems many of us missed it. Any other coupons coming up? :)

If I find out about them, I will let people know ASAP.  It's nice because eBay foots the bill.  I get the full amount, people get a discount, and there are more Atari cartridges in the world!

Ultimate Cart: Can the Shrouded box header be used to connect an external SD card?

 

It has 10 pin vs 8 pins used with a SD card.

Just got an Atari 400. With this system, my Ultimate Cartridge boots up, but no menu. The cart works great with my XEGS. Is my early run cart not compatible with 400/800? Print on my PCB seems to indicate that.

two things to do with your 400, make sure you have enough memory, and make sure cartridge port is standard and not using cas signal.

When I do a PRINT FRE(0) in BASIC ... I get something over 13000. I have no idea what the difference is between standard and CAS. This 400 hasn't been modded in anyway.

Wow, that is a very different PCB.  It should be the same as a regular model.  I will have to pull my unmodded 400 out and do some tests.

One thing I am going to try is install the latest firmware. I have to wait a bit for the USB Blaster to ship to me, though. Apparently the menu is in the firmware, and not handled by boot.rom. Hoping that changes things.

You must have a 48 KB memory expansion to it work. Even when the menu software would work, the loader needs more space and/or the program to be loaded needs more then 16 KB RAM.

Ultimate cart supports the Atari 400. Doesn't give a memory requirement.

 

Now it might be true in my case... I have an early run version.

technically correct in that you need enough memory to run the selection menu,

so long as you run only 400 compatible ROMS/BINS, it will emulate the cart and will run just fine. For xex loading or anything else not so much unless you have expanded the memory...

There still may be an issue with the cart port needing modification on your 400, basically the same fix as on the 800, a simple, simple fix if needed.

I no longer have a 400 for direct testing... sadly.

Installing the new firmware didn't do it. Same as before. The ultimate cart works fine on my XEGS. Boots, but no menu on my 400.
