UPDATE: 26APR17

 

Folks,

 

To avoid confusion, I have started a new thread.

 

The pre-orders are complete.  The run is definitely happening.  Parts are on their way.  Sub-assembler has been booked.  I am running the 3D printer 24/7.  I have 30 carts left after pre-orders.

 

TIMELINE:

05 APR       Parts & PCBs to assembler Parts at sub-assembler (three week+3 day build time $%^&*()

26 30 APR      Assembled boards received back.  

                   Begin doing hand solder parts (3), programming, casing, testing

08 MAY      Begin shipment 

15 MAY        All carts should be in your hands

 

Costs:

US$95.00+shipping (CA add $7.60 sales tax)

Includes one Ultimate Atari Cart inside of a custom printed, 3D case.  

Case is BLACK, unless you choose differently. The label is waterproof and laser printed.

 

If you do not want the case, subtract $5.00 (CA subtract $5.40).

 

If you want a different COLOR for the case, ADD $10.00 (CA add $10.80)

It you want an ADDITIONAL case (Why you would want two cases, I am not sure, but knock yourself out) ADD $10.00 (CA add $10.80)

 

CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS MUST PAY 8% sales tax.  Sorry, it is not my rule.  I paid it myself for the pre-orders, but cannot do it anymore.  Thanks!

 

(See the attached PDF file for available colors.  Do Glow in the dark!!)

 

Shipping is as follows:

US-based PayPal Addresses:                      $10.00 for up to three carts

Canada-based PayPal Addresses:              $15.00 for up to three carts

Rest of the world PayPal addresses:           $20.00 for up to two carts

WHAT IS THIS CARTRIDGE?

It supports most ROMs up to 1 megabyte in size, including standard 8k and 16k cartridges, XEGS, AtariMax 1 & 8mbit ROMs, SIC! Cart, Bounty Bob, OSS, SDX & Williams. ROM dumps can be easily converted into CAR format with Electotrains' html/javascript conversion utility, RomToCar.  It will also load .XEX files directly from the SD card.

 

  • Design, PCB & FPGA firmware by Robin Edwards (electrotrains at atariage)

  • Debugging - Matthias Reichl (HiassofT at atariage)

One quick question. Will you make the STLs for the cases available so we can print our own versions afterwards?

Payment sent for one cart to Germany. Really looking forward to it (my 1050 floppy disc drive recently bit the dust, so I am down to 5 cartridge games for my 600XL :( ).

You sir, must repair that fine piece of history. Disk drives are the rotational force that binds us all! :)
