  1. Hello, and thank you for such a great project. As I mentioned early in your original thread, I want to buy two. If the shipping can accept one or two more, I can go up to four carts. I have two other collectors who'd like one each.
  2. Are you making any of these carts yet? I still would like two and haven't received a PM with payment information yet.

  4. Do they safely fit without pressure, the XE boxes sealed with cellophane? If they don't does anyone else have any leads on some that do? Finally looking to properly display and protect my collection so I would appreciate any help finding box protectors for all sizes of Atari 8-bit Home Computer boxed Cartridges.
  5. That is the only 2500 I have ever seen a picture of and the auction says it is working! How much do you think it will go for?
  6. He's on here...http://atariage.com/forums/topic/280437-big-pick-up-from-former-software-developer-hardware/
  7. I'll take two as I said previously.
  8. How much does it cost for parts to build one?
  9. I see on the AtariOnline page that AtraX 7 isn't listed. Does anyone have a backup of it? Also can you use AtariMax USB Programmer to read AtraX cartridges? If you can, what settings do you use? Thanks
  10. I just updated my want list and deleted some of the carts I picked up in the years since I first posted it. Still would like ans Espial cartridge or any of the others on my list. Still dreaming about a 1450XLD and 815 if anyone would part with theirs. I would be interested in the 1200 Proto/Pilot or 1400XL.
  11. Do you have the list of hardware you are using? Do you have the floppy diskette someone mentioned for it?
  12. Thanks for the updates. I'd really love to check it out; it is such a great missing link. Please let me know if you ever decide to part with it and the BASIC cartridge.
  13. Raise the dead. I will raise my buy from 2 to 4 if this brings the project to fruition and Candle can produce them.
  14. Oh well, if there are any errors in my previous post, it won't let me correct them now. It looks like your BASIC cartridge should work in a production 800 if you align the left most pad with the third slot pins from the left, is that correct? I think that was what Rybags was referring to as downward compatible in post #38.
  15. Thanks for the schematic. It is hard to follow the pin order in your schematic, I will post it bellow to make it clearer. I am trying to compare it with the production version. If you could label the signals on your pictures of the front and back of the Basic cartridge you have it would be easier to compare. The production has the pin-outs (pin order of signals) listed/labeled on the port and cartridge PCB A thru S and 1 thru 15. Please check the following to see if I have it correct... especially the chip select with address range ...

  16. What is the left cartridge/slot pin-out.
  17. I'll take 2 at that price. PM me when they are ready.
  18. I often agree with you CPUWIZ so I usually skip making posts and just read on... Collecting is a hobby for some, a business for others, and sometimes both; so it's natural for any of them to wonder why a rare item is available when it could affect the value of their own collection/inventory, especially if there was more of them found. That isn't the case here since he states in his auction "the ONLY boxed MATTERHORN Atari computer cartridge in the world". This is an open forum and if someone considers it their business they have a right to ask why, just like you have the right to ask why it is their business. I hope he and his family are well and none of the possible reasons you guessed are correct. Very good observation on the high BINs, it also gets you the cash you need on short notice if you get the right impulse shopper. I don't know what would get me to ever part with one if I had it, but we can guess all day as to his reason/s for selling it, and if he had wished to say 'why' he would have. Just commenting on his post should give the auction more exposure. Good luck with your sale; this comment will bump the topic back to the top again so I hope it helps. My bias is... I'd love to have the complete in box Matterhorn cartridge in my collection; I have the only other surviving A8 Matterhorn manual that I am aware of so far.
  19. Please try to use other cartridge cases that fit Atari 1200XL as well and look better.
  20. I'd like two when they are available. Will they have boxes and manuals?
  21. Seller is a trusted eBay seller and member here as well as a long-time Atari 8-bit supporter. He is producing that cartridge for sale as well as others.
  22. So sorry to hear of your health issues, I hope and pray you get better soon.
