  1. Outstanding timing on the release.. I just happen to have next week off of work! 😀 THANK YOU to @rensoup and the entire team for their hard work, dedication to the project, and for seeing it thru to fruition! An absolute high-water mark for the Atari 8-bit.
  2. Sweet framed Getaway! map, @Allan!
  3. Always liked this one.. XMASTRE2.ATR
  4. I was shocked to see the 600XL and 800XL having different lengths, so I went and checked mine. Both are 15 inches (38.1 cm) on the nose.
  5. The 400 is an interesting beast.. 13.125" wide at the rear, 13.5" wide at front. 11.375" length. 600XL is 15" x 6.625". XEGS console is 12.75" x 8.125" XEGS keyboard is 13.75" x 6" Sorry, my tape measure is inches.
  6. Van Hagar does not count as Van Halen. I do not recognize Van Hagar the same way Palestinians do not recognise Israel.
  7. This gets my vote! (although, more quality games are always welcome)
  8. That sounds about right.. Downloaded this one over my 1030 in 1987 or so. Good times.
  9. I've always loved Xagon! A colorful Q*Bert-ish action game.
  10. The Atarimax 32-in-1 Warp OS+ upgrade is easy to install and very reasonably priced. I'm a huge fan of this option!
  11. That's not a bad idea.. The motherboard in question already accepts standard EPROMs and EEPROMS, so this should be even easier to implement.
  12. Is there anyone approved in the US that would be willing and able to perform this operation for me? @Stephen perhaps?
  13. So, just to be clear: Is it just something I can not do at home, or is it impossible to update a 111M02SC?
  14. So an M02 can't be updated?? I don't see any 02 files.
  15. Is it possible to set Altirra BASIC to run at regular Atari BASIC rev C speed? I would LOVE to burn an EPROM with Altirra BASIC in my XE remake but not if my favorite BASIC games will become unplayably fast..
  16. Thank you. Just one more question - my PokeyMax has a 10M02.. can I use the M04 stereo covox core file?
  17. Where can I find instructions/ schematics for making this adapter? What is your web address, please?
  18. Hmmm... it is awfully tempting to order a v3 (with quad POKEY, stereo SID, etc) for this 'perfect Atari' and just install my v2 in a different machine.
  19. Cool. So flashing with v1.21 should make my TransKey happy? Also, my PokeyMax is model 111MO2SC, so I cannot use the .xex flash tool. Would this USB Blaster be up to the task? This project is really forcing me to update my electronics tools. And skills.
  20. Just taking a moment to show off my completed build.. I chose to outfit my board with the Atarimax 32-in-1 Warp OS module for speed and 800 compatibility, as well as a POKEYmax for stereo sound. Both upgrades were greatly simplified by santosp including so many thoughtfully labelled breakout points. Audio out is available on both the enhanced 8-pin monitor port and a 3.5mm phone jack. Yes, that is a light-grey Lego 2x4 tile used to block off the RF and channel-select switch holes, and to provide a mounting surface for the stereo phone jack. All wrapped up in a very clean case and keyboard I set aside for this project. Finishing touch is an 'XE-touch' keyboard upgrade from Best Electronics. Anyone who hasn't experienced this yet, it is an absolute revelation. Unfortunately, I did not know that POKEYmax and TransKey II don't get along with each other, so for now the PS2 keyboard jack is useless. I have searched the forums for a solution to this but have not found one. Thank you, @santosp for creating this board! I have now been able to build the 'perfect-for-me' 130XE I've always wanted. Shout-out to @Stephen for programming the TK2 PIC for me. Works great with a genuine POKEY. Hopefully I can get POKEYmax to cooperate.
  21. Somebody's been playing Quarrion.. 🤨
  22. After purchasing a TL866ii just for this project and successfully flashing the memory GAL and BASIC ROM, I was very disappointed to find this device won't program the PIC for the TransKey II expansion. If anyone here is able and willing to program this chip for me (I'll gladly pay for your time and return postage), please PM me.
