  1. Just out of curiosity, and feel free to smack this down as impossible, but would it be difficult to add the appropriate sprites to make Millipede out of Centipede? I realize the behavior of the DDT canisters are a different ball of wax, and have no idea how much free space (if any!) you had left on the card after completing the basic Centipede code
  2. Got mine yesterday and spammed the Atari Lynx group on Facebook with 30 unboxing photos. Sorry, Igor! Patiently (ha!) waiting for the Ynxa Deluxe pre-orders!
  3. Genius! Love it! I'll download it and give it a try as soon as I can!
  4. Thom was kind enough to show me where to alter the code. From the root directory in fujinet-pc, it's /lib/http/httpService.cpp - change "8000" and recompile the file for each instance you want to run. Now I have one instance with a web service on 8881, and a second on 8882, both running over SIO2PC/USB cables.
  5. Stupid question time! I compiled and got this working on a 32-bit ARM Chromebook (Samsung Chromebook 2, Exynos CPU). In theory, since I have two SIO2PC/USB adapters, I could run two instances (from individual directories) - but how do I change the default web server? localhost:8000 will always go to instance 1, is there a place where I can set, say localhost:8001 for instance 2? Or :8001/:8002? Second dumb question - this being an armv7 system, Altirra won't work. Period. Atari800 works - is there a way to mate the two?
  6. Somebody broke sound in Gates of Zendocon from 0.971 to now. Doesn't seem to work in 0.98 or this 0.99 version. The laugh of Zendocon is my first test for sound compatibility.

  8. Put me down as interested when the time comes to order from a larger batch. If you can do any sooner, I can test on 600/800 XL with RAM upgrades via PBI, but most of my machines are stock, or just have slight video upgrades (monitor jack in 600, svideo in the 65XE). The exception is the 800, with an Axlon RAM board.
  9. Out of curiosity, and because I only skimmed the thread, is there a list of which models this works in? What have people had success with, including upgrades?
  10. I need more time reading, and less time chasing kids. Turns out I *have* the Mf you speak of, in the blue binder, but it's incomplete. Eight tapes, sixteen quizzes, but two of the Dorsett "Practice Folders" are missing. Still, I'm in touch with Kevin; sorry it's a partial, but hey, right more tapes, right?
  11. So, if I have the inserts for Spelling, SP, who needs them for scanning? Also, W - Reading Comprehension/Vocabulary, levels 5-6 Mn - Mathematics, levels 1-6 Mf - Mathematics, levels 4-8 Ma - Mathematics, Basic Algebra
  12. Will there be any options for users in the United States, or elsewhere in the Americas?
  13. Thanks, James! I haven't had the entire case open in a very, very long time, but I know the original video cord for TV display has been cut off. That's the only thing I would vouch for right now. If I get time tomorrow, I will try to get the entire case opened up and photographed.
  14. So I got my father's Atari 800 out again recently, and tried to start figuring out just what upgrades he had done to it, and how they might be useful. He told me at one point, and this was something like 30 years ago, that he was trying to get the 800 so that it would work like an XL (I had the 800 XL). The OS board has had work done on it, and the #2 memory card has a switch. Using SysInfo, it shows a 1920K (!) Axlon RAM bank. Searching AtariAge last night, I couldn't find a way to get into that bank for testing it, but I was able to use a couple of ATR files off of my SIO2SD to get it to successfully create a RAM disk. But I still have no idea what the actual capacity is. Here are some photos. All cards in the Atari 800 with the top off. OS Board RAM from slot 1 RAM from slot 2, with physical switch
