So I'm moving and decided to clear out my unused ST monitors.

There are 6 SC1224 and 1 SC1435.

Free for any user here but must be picked up.  

Location is Beckley, WV.


*Edit*  Will be in Charleston, WV on Saturday the 26th if that is closer for anyone.  Willing to meet in Huntington, WV that day if that works for anyone.

hello folks, I've noticed that our game is not playable due to fact, that the main character tends to fall down and it is quite iritating, I've fixed that by adding long platforms at the bottom of the page, I hope it helps, cheers

Nice game!  I'm really enjoying it!

This one is to make up for the last Iron Maiden image that I probably should of held off on. I'll revisit it in the future, in the mean time, here is Iron Maiden "Cyborg."

476 million evaluations. 68 colors.


Awesome!  Good work!

#3716024 New GUI for the Atari 8-bit

That's exactly how it will work. The entire display subsystem is being painstakingly redesigned so that all the hardware-specific parts are part of a module which can be swapped out.


Sounds like a pretty big nut to crack, but if anyone can do it it is yourself.  Thanks for the update!

I have not dumped a 64K cart and would need to find a little more info.  Any suggestions on how and what software to use.  (or is there someone  close to Buffalo, NY that can do it?)


If you can't get it dumped, I have the equipment and am pretty close to NY here in West Virginia.


I have helped user Zap! before if you want a reference and he was in NY.  Took 2 days for shipping for his ultrasatan and we didn't have any problems.

So I was one of the six?


I'm not sure how much changed between 2.0 and 3.0.  I know two functions were added,  FILESELECT(56) and MESSAGEBOX(57). IF a program calls these functions then it will not work in 2.0.  I'm trying to remember how stable the cartridge FILESELECT routine was but 25 years is a long time to remember such details.






Wow, nice to see someone with the original cart.  Anyway you can dump the chip?

I think I like 7.4 the way it is.   Too brown for my tastes on the new versions.
