    Pokeymax v2

    Is this an issue only with the 600XL or might it affect 800XLs too?
  2. I think that I did know that. Too large for the UNO Cart nonetheless.
  3. 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.
  5. Thanks for all of your help and work on this @drac030. Very much appreciated.
  6. 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.
  7. 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:
  8. Yep. That seems to have cleared up my problem too, as long as "D0" isn't selected on the SDrive-MAX (which I never use anyway). Thanks!
  9. @drac030 - This new version seems to have fixed everything on my end. Everything is apparently running perfectly now. Thanks!
  10. Thanks Jon. I managed to get the U1MB firmware running in Altirra with a similar configuration setup to the one that I have on my 800XL. With a little bit of experimentation I was able to save it as the default configuration too. Very cool.
  11. Do you find that you have trouble using the SIO2SD's onscreen menu while the SDrive-MAX is connected in serial via the splitter? Because I do. Both devices will communicate with each other just fine if I do not try to load the menu, so I am stuck with the device displays if I want to have both connected at the same time.
  12. Granted I have not done any of this yet but, if I wanted to change the U1MB settings in Altirra, would I still need to run a SpartaDOS X image and then run UFLASH with it in order to virtually flash the virtual U1MB? Would the procedure be exactly the same as if I were flashing real hardware?
  13. @drac030 - Everything seems to work on my end with ANTTEST3. I tested with the same eight Operating Systems that I used previously and had no issues that caused any interruptions or glitches in operation at all. OSa no longer causes the program to hang; the system now reboots after loading OSa as expected. The screen does still flash momentarily with garbage graphics while loading under OSa, OSb, and Oldrunner the same as it did in the video that I posted yesterday; screenshot posted below. However, this does not effect the loading process or program operation at all. It is only a very few momentary effects on screen and not problematic in any way. I do not see this effect under any other Operating System.
  14. I find that the splitter connections *are* just a bit on the tight side, even some of my vintage cables take a bit of extra pressure to fit in. Your 3D printed plugs are probably a little big though; some light sanding should fix this problem.
  15. @drac030 - ANTTEST2 fully loaded and worked with all of the Operating Systems that I tried it with : OSa, OSb, Oldrunner, Omniview, XL/XE rev.3, MyBios, Altirra, and Reverse BASIC XL. The garbled graphics on the flasher screen that I had seen in the previous revision are no longer present. When I change my configuration to OSa and hit -Accept-, the system does not automatically reboot. The screen goes black and the computer apparently hangs. The configuration *does* change to OSa, though, because that is what the system is set to when I reload the ANTTEST2 Configurator. This is not a problem, just an oddity. None of the other Operating Systems that I tried caused this behavior. The video below shows the screen while ANTTEST2 is loading under OSa, OSb, and Oldrunner. I do not see this effect when loading the Configurator under other Operating Systems. Again, this is not a problem at all, just another oddity. All in all, I would say that ANTTEST2 has solved all of the problems that I was previously experiencing. Thanks. 20200430_221906.mp4
  16. I am a real fan of the FIFJr homebrew on the Sega Genesis. I just have this version a try on the VICE emulator. Very nice job indeed. Too bad that I don't own a real C64 anymore because I'd like to see it running on actual hardware. I can tell that it was designed for PAL, though, as it ran a little fast when I had VICE set for NTSC.
  17. @drac030 - This new version fully loaded under every OS that I tried it with : OSa, OSb, Oldrunner, Omniview, XL/XE rev.3, MyBios, Altirra, and Reverse BASIC XL. However, I got a garbled screen after I hit the "F" button on the ROM Flasher screen. I was able to load the new OS ROM into the desired slot; it was only the Flasher screen that caused the effect. I have attached a screenshot below.
  18. It seem kind of strange that a 1988 movie purporting to show a "modern" office would be populated by 5 year old home computers. I would have to assume that because of the very brief screentime that the Ataris had, the props department just used a couple of things that they already had lying around and didn't give it much thought beyond that.
  19. There is a fix for that now. The one that Gavin built for me communicates well with both my 1050 and SIO2SD.
  20. @drac030 - Thanks for your help. This makes me again wonder if the problem could be with my specific hardware rather than with your software. I don't know how I would test it any further though and maybe I should just leave well enough alone.
  21. The UNO and AVG cartridges will run some but not all ATR images. If you are looking for a floppy drive type of experience, then you might want to consider a SDrive-MAX instead. The SDrive-MAX cannot run cartridge images (.CAR or .ROM) but it can run .XEX format files and most cartridge images have been converted to that format by now.
  22. If you purchaded a SDrive-MAX that was built in the past year, it should already be modified in order to be able to communicate with physical drives. Just make sure that whichever drive number your physical drive is set to is turned off as a virtual drive on the SDrive-MAX. I own one of Lotharek's SIO Splitters, BTW. It works great for using my SDrive-MAX in conjunction with my 1050.

    Will #3 work in my U1MB machine just like a standard POKEY chip until I am ready to wire it up for Stereo? Also, once I do the Stereo mod, will audio-out still work like normal via the monitor port? Thanks.
