  1. @drac030 - This seemingly fixed everything on my end. I didn't actually try switching everything around with all of my loaded Operating Systems this time but the Configurator Tool did save my ID file changes correctly in both the regular and CRC versions.
  2. @drac030 - Everything in these new versions worked fine and loaded under all of the Operating Systems that I tried them with. I was able to rename all of my slots EXCEPT for "Altirra BASIC V1.55". For some reason, even though I tried saving the ID file numerous times, the BASIC description keeps reverting to the name "AB09". Otherwise, I experienced no other issues.
  3. @drac030 - I just saw this new update. I will try to get to testing it this coming weekend. The ability to edit the ROM file names sounds like a perfect update! Looking forward to this. Thanks for your continued work on this.
  4. I am terribly sad to hear this news. The last time that I saw Curt was at Vintage Computer Fest East in 2019 but it had been more than 10 years since the last time that I had seen him before that. It was great catching up with him and I was looking forward to seeing him again at this year's VCFE but of course the world prevented that from happening. Curt was an interesting guy to say the least; he had a manner about him that was kind of like a Mack Truck! He was boisterous and self assured and a wealth of knowledge. I really liked Curt a lot and am sorry that I'll never get the opportunity to talk with him again.
  5. Wow. I am terribly sad to hear this news.

  6. @Geister - Very nice pick up for you! Sounds like you have probably been needing one too. It also tells me that I should have been paying more attention to the LV Craigslist too, since I also live in Easton PA. 😛 I'm glad that you got the stash though and hope that everything turns out to be either working or an easy repair.
  7. I own real, legit purchased copies of "Venture", "Tempest Elite", and "Animal Keeper". All are fun games and I really wouldn't want to be without the first two. I did have an issue with "Venture" when I first got it but Lance at Video61 totally came through for me and replaced my copy with a new one. "Tempest Elite" is picky about which XL hardware that it likes to run on; it hates my earliest HK revision 800XL but runs just fine on my later Taiwanese made 800XL (and it has no issue with any of my RAM upgraded 600XLs). I have corresponded with Lance from Video61 on a number of occasions via email and I have always found him to be helpful and friendly; I genuinely like the guy.

    Pokeymax v2

    I got my two Pokeymaxs in the mail today. I haven't done any wiring yet but everything seems to be working fantastically as a straight Pokey replacement. One question : I thought that I had ordered a basic Stereo version but, instead, the Stereo Covox version showed up. Will this make any difference if I want to use the Pokeymax for just a simple stereo connection? Also, will I still need to attach both the A4 & A7 wires to the SALLY chip or just the A4? Thanks.
  9. I'm sure that this is going to be a dumb question but how do I go about creating an empty 2MByte ATR?
  10. Definitely one for now, for an 800XL. Possible one later, for a 600XL.
  11. Is this what you are looking for? I have had them sitting on my Ultimate Cart forever but haven't really ever done much with them. I cannot recall where I found them either. I ran a few with Altirra and they seemed to work just fine. Hope this helps. Williams Carts.zip

  13. I am a big fan of @tf_hh's internal 576K RAM upgrade board. It will likely do everything for you that you're looking for and is relatively inexpensive. However on an XE machine you will have to do a bit of desoldering and re-soldering work to install it, although this probably won't be a big deal if you were already planning on replacing some RAM chips anyway.
  14. I don't honestly know if I've ever used the 2/4MB setting on my ANTONIA. I generally just leave it at 576K or 1MB; both settings meet pretty much all of my needs. What I really do appreciate about the ANTONIA is that it has the 8 open configurable and easily selectable OS slots.
  15. Just wanted to pop in to give a public thanks to @bob1200xl for the MediaMate disk holder. My one old one was becoming hopefully overcrowded in recent days so this was greatly appreciated!
  16. Send Simius a PM. He always responds in a day or two.
  17. Fantastic! Glad to hear that you were able to get everything sorted out. Now go fill up those OS slots with some alternative Operating Systems!

    Pokeymax v2

    Is this an issue only with the 600XL or might it affect 800XLs too?
  19. I think that I did know that. Too large for the UNO Cart nonetheless.
  20. You need an 8MB MaxFlash cartridge or something like an Ultimate Cart than can run 8MB MaxFlash cartridge images.

    Pokeymax v2

    How is shipping from Poland to the United States going these days? I'd like to order one Stereo version and one U1MB Stereo version when shipping is available.
  22. Thanks for all of your help and work on this @drac030. Very much appreciated.
  23. Yes, very much so. The output is very comparable to what you would expect to see from an emulator connected to a modern TV via HDMI.
  24. You have to run a separate audio line out of your Atari. My television has a 3.5mm audio input jack that overrides everything else, whatever is plugged into it is what the TV speakers output. Apparently not all televisions are made this way though. A friend of mine also has a SOPHIA DVI installed in his XE and has to output the audio to a pair of external speakers. Here is a picture of my DVI and audio lines out of the back of my 600XL:
