Not sure if this helps, but when I post an Atari 8-bit related post on my blog, ATARI 8-BIT ADS, I'll get between 500-700 views. If a post is about something bigger than just Atari 8-bit related (and I "advertise" it), such as my post on the Hayes Chronograph,  it can get closer to 1000 views.

We had about 35 people or so show up the last two years at Atari Party East here in NJ. Not all Atari 8-bit computer users for sure, but at least Atari (in general) enthusiasts.

I'll try to create a raw stream tonight. I'll also look at the various solutions for side B.

It's a good screwed together case the the tape inside can be replaced, fix whatever equipment ate it however...

 

[Me getting the cassette out of the trash to save the case....]

Sorry, I forgot all about this, and since Bill's copy has had it's guts spilled, I'll look into getting an image made tonight. I've never made a cassette image before, but it's time to learn on the job.

 

You should be able to use Audacity to capture it to wav. 

 

Then see this article if you want to convert the wav to a small flac file.

 

And more info here.

#4079710 Creating a new Advance Dungeons and Dragons type Role Playing Game

Posted by Bill Lange on Thu Jul 26, 2018 11:58 AM

I helped out with a Palm Pilot game called Dragonbane II in the early 2000s. It really worked well on the Palm Pilot. It has a Bard's Tale look and feel to it. It also has a construction set so you can see how levels are designed and graphic resources are combined to create the look.

#4050403 Yet Another Set of Atari 5200 End Labels

Posted by Bill Lange on Sat Jun 16, 2018 2:55 AM

I have the sticky paper (just arrived from Amazon). Do I print from the images or do you have a Postscript file like a PDF that has to be used? 

 

 

 
There is a link to the .pdf in the fourth post.

Thanks for making these labels. It gave me a chance to go through my collection.  I got a few dups and a few trips.

Did you guys manage to connect up on this? *fingers crossed*

 

Well, we did manage to get together and Allan did have his Kryoflux with him, but we were so busy with VCF East we never actually got around to coping or scanning anything. We did discuss getting together in the near future to try again. 

 

We will try again either over the summer or at Atari Party East in September. Thanks for checking in!

 

On a side note, I got to meet Richard Garriott when we met up for drinks in Manhattan in April.
