  1. Me too. And that money is so much more better invested in that cartridge than in much current pc games! More more more! :-)
  2. You´re doing an amazing job! Keep on going.
  3. Then be informed that the author still is working on the game to make it better. Especially the Level design will be worked over. If you have any ideas, suggestion etc.: Say it! It will be heard. :-)
  4. I just started learning Assembler and use Mac/65 too. I have it on a handmade cartridge. Together with SpartaDos 3.3 and the SIO2USBs RTC it works very fine for me.
  5. Good Idea. Let´s talk about Animal Party. Is something like that on the C64? And the most important point: Does it count over 20000 points? (I´m still waiting for a patch...)
  6. Hello, I do have an some original 1050 PSUs which say 9V - 27VA. If you want one, I can send one to you. I live in Germany, so the postage should not be too expensive. Should have known that earlier, I´ve been in Naples in June (Bagnoli).
  7. Any chance for Mac OS X support? But so what, I think I´ll take one.
  8. For me "LW" in first place means "LightWave" from NewTek, so I voted for "TLW". :-)
  9. What happens if you press "Option" while you turn on the computer? What happens if you type "DOS" at the BASIC screen? What do you expect to be on the disk?
  10. I think, the SIO2SD is the best way to get disk images from the Mac/PC to the Atari 8 Bit, but to get Atari Disks to the Mac/PC you better should watch out for something like 1050toPC (e.g. http://atari8warez.for-the.biz/build1050.html ) or SIO2PC. I personally use a SIO2PC with SIO2OSX on my Mac and it works like a charm, nut needs an Serial-to-USB adaptor (because my Mac doesn´t have a serial connector). So I just ordered that one: http://cgi.ebay.com/Atari-400-800-XL-SIO-2...id=p3286.c0.m14 Other people reported, that it works great, too. So you should go for that one in my humble opinion.
  11. Thank you for still working on it. :-)
  12. Thanks for the update. Great to see that there still is development for Atari emulation on the Mac. But when I download it, the file still is Version 2.0.0, only the Disk Image says 2.1.0!?
  13. I think you are right. Looks like an 800XL to me too. Crazy people on eBay sometimes...
  14. Yes: Here and at the german ABBUC-Forum (most of the people there also speak english). If you need a BASIC and a BASIC: I could give you one of each, but they are from a 800 XL. I am not sure, if they will do for the 65XE. Another possibility: Ask for EPROMS. I have different OSs in my machines. Some people are able (make a new thread and ask for it) to do that and you can replace your OS and BASIC chip with the EPROMS.

  16. Hi, the keyboard is all ok, since this computer works fine without the keyboard, I took it to try and nothing ... died ... I think that was the OS ROM. I will continue to search. thanks! Are your chips socketed? If yes, perhaps one ore more have loosened. Especially the OS and the BASIC. Remember waht the ABBUC guys always say: An ATARI never dies. It only goes to sleep sometimes.
  17. Nope. It´s never too late for anything. I never made it to program something for the A8. But I want to. So I just started learning Assembler. Perhaps I will never write a simple program or demo. Perhaps I might write a great game within a year. I don´t know. What I know is: When I don´t try to do it, I surely won´t do it.
  18. And I have to add, that Lotharek´s support is great, too. I once had some little problems with my Stereoboard (the board was ok, but I was stupid) and he solved it via email. Good to have such people still acitve in the scene. :-)
  19. Absolutely wrong! The SIO2SD also has a on screen Interface where you comfortably can select the files. And that menu isn´t very different from the SDrives menu. In fact it handles long filenames much better and doesn´t show the normally invisible files which my Mac produces.
  20. German ABBUC forum member wants to create covers on his own: http://www.abbuc.de/modules.php?name=Forum...opic&t=4601 Here some prototype-pics: http://www.schweptech.de/abbuc/P1030579_1.jpg http://www.schweptech.de/abbuc/P1030580_1.jpg http://www.schweptech.de/abbuc/P1030581_1.jpg
  21. They all have their Pros and Cons. Here is what I think about them: SIO2SD Turbo - Uh? I never heard about that one. I know the "normal" SIO2SD which I own. I bought the parts and assembled it on my own. It provides a 2 line LCD-Display and has a built in menu. Easy to use. SDrive - Great device! Very simple, very fast, very easy to assemble on your own. I just built one at the Fujiama-Party with parts which cost only about 10 Euro! (Watch this: http://www.abbuc.de/modules.php?name=Forum...p;p=33724#33724 ) SDrive NUXX - a commercial, ready to use version of the SDrive mentioned aboved. It cost some money but looks unbelieveable professional. Technically it is identical to the SDrive. SIO2IDE - this one allows you to connect harddrives abd CF-Cards (with IDE to CF adaptors). Very small and easy to assemble, but has some problems. Does not work with every harddrive and things like that. I just got one and are testing it. If you want to have a reliable and fast solution, this is nothing you want. SIO2USB - Ready to use device with LCD screen, Menu and RealTimeClock. It also allows you to connect USB-Adapters like CardReaders etc. Very mighty but not so easy to get. Has a built in menu, additional menus like YASH available. MyIDE+Flash Interface - I don´t know that.
  22. No releases at the party, but some development was done there and there will be releases later. I was busy soldering my sdrive and learning how to use MAC65 and SpartaDos to learn Assembler. Perhaps I can do something next year... You forgot the "Kölsch" which Slee∏ brought from Cologne. yum yum
  23. Yes of course. Dietrich thinks the easiest level to do that is level 1. I personally find level 4 more easy. But there are some more levels where you can easily collect all the blinking bombs in sequence. The problem is, that there is no "safe" way to do that.
  24. And the developer of YASH, QMEG OS and former highscore holder in Bomb Jack.
