  1. Looking forward to the version that uses the Ultimate 1M.
  2. While you wait, is there anything else you did, Atari 8-bit wise, back-in-the-day, that you remember?
  3. I am offended! No. Just kidding. The problem is that only Archive.org employees can change that. For example, I just posted a bunch of Current Notes magazines. But they are not in their own collection. I do need to put in a request for an employee to do this. But it is a pain because I am adding new stuff all the time.
  4. Plus I posted the last of the 8-bit programs that were published in Start magazine once they stopped producing Antic. www.atariage.com/forums/topic/255586-start-magazine-a8-software-last-six-issues/
  5. Are you downloading stuff? I have uploaded tons of stuff on archive.org but the more places this stuff resides, the better. https://archive.org/details/@allan52
  6. Here are all ten issues that I have. All from 1984. Hopefully more show up one day. There really isn't much on the Net about them. Looks like they had a BBS as well. There are a number of Basic programs in there. Maybe somebody could try to OCR them. I scanned all the pages with listings at 600 DPI. Archive.zip
  7. Somebody want to make a short comparison video using an emulator and couple of examples?
  8. Sugarland, I added DOS 2.0 and the AUTORUN.SYS AMS player from the second disk you posted to your first disk. Just so people can loaded quickly and listen. Sugarland's keyed in songs (unsure about Entertainer) with AMS Player.atr
  9. There are a number of public domain/shareware collections that this program might be in. C & T , MWPDS, BELLCOM. Here is a Bellcom catalog: https://archive.org/details/bellcompublicdomainsharewarecatalog Many of the disk images are on archive.org as well.
  10. If the editor was included with the Swifty Software version of My First Alphabet we have a better chance of finding it. If it was only sold separately, the odds are a lot worse that we will ever find it. P.S. I included the standard Electronic Arts Command Summary Card scan with manual scan for Cut and Paste on Archive.org.
  11. Interesting fact is that the Swifty Software version of My First Alphabet includes a 'Graphics Editor for creating, editing and viewing your own custom drawings' in My First Alphabet. http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-my-first-alphabet_22419.html This program is mentioned in the manual of the Atari Program Exchange version but was not included with that one: http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-my-first-alphabet_29828.html
  12. Just a bump in case anyone has come across any more Compute magazine disks.
  13. Oh great. Another Atari vs. Commodore thread. You can never have enough of those.
  14. I think I found the creator of UltraBasic and the games written in it. https://www.autoyas.com/US/Bloomsburg/143025549095759/Ultrabasic%2C-Inc. Allan
  15. I wish there was a Sys-check for the 1050 disk drive. Partially joking because I don't think that would be possible because the only I/O is the SIO port.
  16. I think the Recent Status Updates should be used to showcase stuff in the AtariAge store instead.

      I generally enjoy reading the various status updates as they are now.

      Personally,  I like to see what's on people's minds.  Whatever it may be.

      If a person feels compelled to talk argue politics or boost about themselves, go to Twitter. I see people trying to push their crap but while trying to not cross the line.


      This is a nice place to talk about computers and video games. I hope it stays this way. I love hearing about what people are doing with their computers and game systems though. There are lots of very talented people here. It just amazes me sometimes what people can do. I wish I had half their talent.

  17. This game? http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-volleyball_26.html Your Apple Panic game looks great. Looking forward to seeing you finish it. There is lots of great programmers here.
  18. Please stop. Focus on video games and classic computers.

      Oh. That.


      I don't pay attention to that stuff, or really any news, anymore.

      Agreed, we don't need commentary on current events here.  There are plenty of other places for it.

      Most of the comments are about video games anyway...If it's not off limits (i.e. Religion & Politics) why not let people say what they want to say?  You can ignore it if you don't like it.

  19. I will give it a try but it will take a while since I am still working on archiving DarkLord's Current Notes magazines. I have a midimate plus a Casio CZ-1000. Hybrid Arts made both programs plus the Midimate, your are probably write.
  20. Cool. Do you think this would work with MidiMate as well?
  21. That would be a great compiler to write. Curt had posted a number of source codes for games over the years that were done on Atari's PDP computers.
  22. @Big_Mo The Computer Shopper issues came today. Non of them have your review in them. Some day we will find it and archive it. I got January, February, April and August of '88. So at least you know it was not in one of those issues.
  23. There was an Atari 8-bit 3 1/2 inch drive advertised in Antic or Analog that I ordered. It took forever and when I got it, it was missing stuff. I couldn't use it. I returned it but never got my money back. They went out of business soon after. I think there was mention of the problems people were having with the company in one of the issues. I don't remember any more than that.
  24. Ironically I just won four issues of Computer Shopper/ They are all from 1988. I will scan them soon and post them.
  25. They look good but it looks like they screwed up on the 5200 end labels.
