  1. this is becoming a mess that doesn't need to be, please test each cartridge type on the real actual cartridge... not emulated on an a multi cart emulation cartridge device... please test each on real Atari manufactured Machines only... lot's of homebrew Atari replacement pcb/remakes etc out there have their own issues... if you use the latest maxflash studio to create the maxflash image... it will normally make an atr flasher that handles the bank 0 / 127 thing on it's own... using older tools usually fails to do this as do some newer third party creations that don't take this into account... additionally it's only sometimes will you need to change your actual projects code if it is not following the guidelines set out by Steve. If software works on the real devices/carts/Atari machines... but fails on newer romcart emulation device or on some such mini Atari remade machine... then those devices and re-machines may very well need some work or fixes.... It would appear the SIDE 3 wasn't doing something correctly and new firmware fixed some of it... telling the developer all the cart types are failing or this or that type fails has them going in circles when there really isn't a problem with the cart type at all... it works on the real cart and real machine. This may also explain why so many say it works across the board on the actual specific devices and machines while others claim it's all bad and doesn't work for the same list as the latter are not running the hardware on the list at all... it's emulated by another device or run on a homebrew machine. Let make sure it works on all the direct and real hardware first and solve the problem an emulation device / remake board has later... since their issues have little to do with the program itself and more to do with their own firmware implementations and quirks. That normally ends up being a fix from their respective creators/and collaborators and not within the scope of the software developer. If it's not an issue on the real thing... the problem isn't in their code.
  2. probably need more info about what your altira installed rom/os base etc. is...
  3. ????? it's blueish not green, maybe adjust your stuff...
  4. your test needs to be added to my jukebox of songs, where'd you hide the xex
  5. the ribbon cables etc on these are often a source of weird problem as well, make the the ribbon and header connection are good, if it's and old old old board, make sure whatever fixes have been dones, 2 resistors or some such thing... if they weren't done... then you might be able to get it replaced or some other mercy worked out.
  6. I had already pm'd but felt I should post here as an afterthought to let him know to check his PM's
  7. don't forget sometimes you had to use ENTER "C: ...... so many ways to cassette... hold start while powering up bzzzzz press a key RUN "C: LOAD "C: CLOAD ENTER "C: manual covers most of the loading running and saving methods... not all proggies are basic either then you gets option keys involved or shutting off basic... some require you not have a DOS loaded to work either
  8. exactly this, and it can be your fujinet TNFS , RespeQT, APE, Print, this or that server as well... an all Atari environment you might even install Altirra etc....
  9. it really does need supplemental support... most epoxies that are not conductive and are neutral plastic and circuit safe are labelled as such... I think a mechanical solution would be best imho... as glues and epoxies are a pain in the *ss for maintenance when a switch fails or breaks.... a support should be 3d printed for it either as part of the case or standalone to connect to the pcb... metal shaving and jb weld or any conductive epoxy / glue is always a bad idea
  10. but what you may have done is made it so it can be on the image section of most hard drive solutions and have it work... now to what size image disk that may be is to be discovered but I see you've licked a great deal of the memory mystery and more than likely the drive size limit may be discovered or tweaked... it may not be agnostic and work on whatever 32 meg partition you have but it's getting closer everyday.
  11. Thanks for the update, and the win! This definitely was a lesson on patience, diligence, tenacity, and perseverance! Never give up, never surrender!
  12. Nice job as usual, can't wait for it all to come together... The end all be all of the syn series compilation may be on the horizon. Love your work and diligence
