In Topic: Star Raiders release date

Sat Jan 12, 2019 1:58 PM

According to the report by Ted Nelson on page 34 in the June 1980 issue of Creative Computing, an Atari computer running Star Raiders was shown by Ludwig Braun at an "education-and-computers" conference in September 1979.  I have been seeking corroboration of that event, or to even identify what conference that would have been, for years.  Who can help?


Other than the month being off (November, instead of September as reported), this one seems rather plausible:


"Science and Math Education Through the New Information Technologies" November 8-9, Tarrytown NY, sponsored by Wicat, Inc.

Thank you for that.  I didn't realize that folks were using archive.org for dumping so much stuff.

This is the full list of A/C issues that I'm aware of:








15 total issues.  Anyone know if there were more?


Just one more issue missing from your list: July 1997 Volume 7

I'm no help, just wondering the details of the connectors on the back of the unit.  1 or 2 SIO ports?  Printer port?  Slave disk drive port?


A photo or two would be excellent!

There's so little info about this drive, will be easy enough to include everything in this thread.


The attachment is the ad they ran in Antic for several months.


Also, their product announcement mentioned a lineup of four drive models, as reported in Analog: https://archive.org/...ine-23/page/n13

Willing to share pics of the rear and bottom?


Yes these seem exceedingly rare, first time I've seen evidence of one.  Thanks for sharing!
