  1. Bump. Looking to finish this off before I put the rest on eBay.

      @adam242 My ex-wife once stormed into the room and shouted ' What is that fucking shit ? ' raging like you have never seen. She then told me to turn it off.


      I was listening to Fleetwood Mac's Albatross. It was at that moment I thought, I don't need this, we are not right for each other.


      It's one thing not to like someone's taste in music but to be so vicious and venomous about it, is a whole different matter, and then there is the lack of respect for the other persons right to enjoy whatever the damn they like.

      @∞ Vince ∞ Never heard that song before. I've never liked Fleetwood Mac (primarily Stevie Nicks' voice) but I must say this is beautiful.

      If you are not into U.S / U.K Fleetwood Mac, Adam, (1975-Now) then try this, the older UK only, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac (1967-75).

      Much more blues driven.


      Not surprising as most of the members had exited John Mayall's Blues Breakers.


      Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac were very blues and experimental and some of the songs are very bizarre but they're also beautiful.



      John Mayall's BB was basically a finishing school for Virtuoso musicians :


      • Eric Clapton (Cream, Derek and the Dominos, Solo)
      • Aynsley Dunbar (too many to name)
      • Peter Green (FM)
      • Andy Frazer (Free)
      • Mick Fleetwood
      •  Mick Taylor (The Rolling Stones)
      • John McVie (FM)
      • Jack Bruce (Cream, BBM)


      You can probably pick up the Best Of PG FM for $5 on Amazon.

  2. I would be interested in an ACE80 (right cartridge) version.
  3. Bottom label reads 111MO2SC
  4. Bump. Anyone interested in this?
  5. How can I tell which version Pokeymax I have? Ordered (and received) one months ago. Haven't installed it yet. I thought I had, at minimum, stereo POKEY replacement.
  6. I used 720K 3.5" floppies with mine for a while years ago. Don't know about 1.44M.
  7. Any of the effects from Centipede (especially the dancing spider tune) just scream 'Atari' to me. They are identical to the arcade machine. The sound effects from Star Raiders (photons firing, the little warning tune when a starbase is surrounded or destroyed) are very identifiable at the Atari 800.
  8. Sitting on my bed, playing Star Raiders on a 400. It's 1982 all over again!

      What did you think of E.T, or have you not seen it?

      The 400/800 version was decent, unlike the 2600 bomb. Never got super into it though.


  9. It wasn't Detroit proper... I want to say either Sterling Heights or Troy... one of the northern suburbs. Surprised that the first hand report didn't specify exactly which hotel/ community space.
  10. I remember Alpha Systems and Parrot from the ads in ANTIC! I was 14 at the time. I remember playing MIDI Maze and buying some stuff from Innovative Concepts and others.. Great day, wish I had brought a camera as well.
  11. Yep. That demo is also on the disk, filename "MAGICSHO.OBJ" The filename of the demo you're looking for is PETRGUNN.BAS You might want to reach out to AtariAge user ClausB. He was a higher-up in CHAOS back in the day and may have a copy/ image of the disk. Just curious... did you live in Michigan back then?
  12. The demo in question looks like this (sorry for the poor quality pic): Unfortunately, I have no way to upload it. My SIO2PC device has the old-school 9-pin RS232 interface, and my desktop only has USB ports.
  13. I have a copy of the CHAOS Magic Show special disk, which included this demo. Thanks for refreshing my memory of this! I'll see if I can get it transferred onto my PC later today.
