Does anyone have the 3d print files for the case that Ben Heck made for these mini cabinets, or something similar?

Are these for sale now? I couldn't see them in the store.

The power supply I'm using works just fine for the working 800xl and 65xe. I doubt it's that. I'm in the UK, so we didn't get any of those nasty psus.

My friend Dr Dean (the videogame whisperer) has just told me I need to use a doubled up image on a 27128 to replace the BASIC IC, which I'll do later on today.

As for the RAM, I replaced it with 4164, not those trash mT ones either - they sound like the equivalent RAM to Fujitsu eproms :mad:


I don't really know how to use a logic probe properly (although, I do have one) - otherwise I probably would have this thing working by now. I have ordered the 2 74LS ics that control the ram, so will socket and replace them when they arrive. I will also make up an eprom converter and reburn the BASIC chip too. Even if this is shotgunning, it will hopefully make the computer a bit more 'future proof' anyway. It's not like the chips are very expensive anyway...

In Topic: THE!CART... New 128MB FLASH Cartridge

Hello and forgive me for arriving so late into this...


Only today, I have replaced my non working 800xl with an 800xl AND a boxed 65XE ;-)


I already have a Lotharek SIDE CF cart. Is this new cart a better solution? Am I right in thinking it provides a memory upgrade to my 64k machines? Would I be able to load and play 128k roms?


If so, my wallet will be vibrating! Just reading the last few posts, are people waiting for a back log of carts to be made?
