  1. ... and only 2037 days after my initial post an can finally report, that all problems of my 850 board have now been eliminated and it runs fine. So if you ever need a good example of hobby projects taking longer than expected, feel free to use this one 🙂
  2. Hello, after 5 years I've finally managed to get a broken Atari 850 board woring again. Now I'm looking for a suitable case, as I don't have one. Does anybody know of there are original/alternative or 3-d printed cases for it out there? Best regards, Peter.
  3. My Atari ROM Checker download has been enhanced with and the "Atari ROM Patcher" tool to display, compute and fix OS checks sums for Atari XL/XE computers. It can also be used to swap the floating-poing package. The tool is written in Atari BASIC and starts automatically when the disk is booted. Also, typos and swapped columns in the documentation have been fixed. Also, the disk images are now single density, so they also work on Atari 810. EDIT: Fixed incorrect TRAP that would skip loading the FP ROM in case you enter a wrong file name.
  4. I had bought this one several years ago at a retro fair and had never turned it on until today. I expected much less and must admit the design is extremely clever. We even managed to save and load from a tape drive and that goes far beyond my expectations. Universum, PAL, BC0100025286
  5. Here's a scan of the PCB top side. I've created it on my flatbed scanner. It can help a lot finding the correct location of parts on a populated board. https://www.wudsn.com/index.php/productions-atari800/hardware
  6. Then you should stay on 1.7.1. You don't lose anything functionally. The main purpose of 1.7.2 we pushing up the versions of all components.
  7. Note: Some user have reported problems like "Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could no be found" updating to the lasted (1.7.2.x) version of WUDSN IDE plugin. As we found the problem typically is that the Eclipse version itself was too old. For WUDSN 1.7.2 you need as least Eclipse 2021-03 (aka 4.19). Here is the complete release list and the Eclipse versions required foryour reference: https://www.wudsn.com/index.php/ide/releases
  8. I've tested it and the options offered in the editor selection dialog are not sufficient. I've reopened the corresponding bug report.
  9. I once did an Atari 5200 port of Alienswarm with the help of playsoft. Here are the sources for a WUDSN project that compiles to both Atari XL and Atari 5200. https://atariage.com/forums/topic/224914-alien-swarm-hack-request/?do=findComment&comment=3078433
  10. Well, of course it is black and white, there was no color TV in 1941 🙂
  11. I have checked this in 2021-03 and there the problem exists also outside of WUDSN. It seems to be a general regression in Eclipse. I've filed a bug there: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=572503
  12. I tried to swap in Eclipse 2021-03 and get a lot of error/exceptions. I'll try and see what I can do here. EDIT: I found that is these message and missing icons are related to cached data in the workspace from old Eclipse parts of previous installs. My solution was to delete the ".metadata" folder in the workspace to clean it. Then you'll have to re-import the projects from file system using "File / Open Projects from File System" and then set the paths to the assemblers/emulators again. So you should export them before using "File / Export / Preferences / Assembler Preferences" and import them again.
  13. Hi. I just downloaded the wudsn-ide-win64.zip to a clean machine, unpacked and started it. For me the default was "C:\jac\wudsn\workspace". Please try if you can reproduce the issue and send a PM if you can. Thanks, Peter.
