Shamus was a game at random really the adjustments in auto-fire speed works
What other games would you recommend i test with?

One from recent memory - Into the Eagles Nest, a late XEGS game (88) is really annoying without auto-fire.

Picked up a working 820 printer a week ago off eBay for a decent price.

Picked Up a couple 810s off of eBay. One is a Happy Drive that was refurbished by a guy in San Jose. Probably an Atariage member I bet. Anyone know where to purchase the special happy software from?

AFAIK the latest software for the Happy 810 is V5.3

There's also a later happy 7 version for the 810, and 7.1 disks. Try both and see what works. Also could be interesting to open it up to see what's inside. there's various hardware versions of the happy 810, the oldest ones being hand wire wrapped. Although one of yours is the later Tandon mech, If thats the Happy, it's more likely to be a later happy revision.

Congrats on receiving yours intact! My case was destroyed in shipping due to almost nonexistant packing material.

Always try to help get it packed safely... It's worth it, even if apprehensive or reluctant.. offer how to and pictures of the safe good way to do it.  So many things are lost to the two story package drop of the sorting machines!

Nothing but the 830, but it looks clean and nothing rattles around. Smaller in person than I thought it would be. No PS.

 

I just want to get an 810 and then stick my 800 with an 810, 850 and 830 and a nice old Bell Phone on a spare desk and then look at them every once in a while.

I can't even use it as I have VOIP and got rid of my copper phone lines many years ago.

 

Maybe find that 40 col thermal printer too someday.

Hi, Just in case you dont have a PS for the 830 yet. I have found a cheap alternative. It is a match for voltage and capacity 24VAC and 4.8VA, not sure about the connector, but it can be changed: search ebay for SPN4027A.
