  1. it shouldn't be... that's not how the preservation project operates...
  2. The cartridge shell could be a relief or embossed version across the entirety of the cart so It would still fit inside the 800 or 1200 tunnel and still be quite stylized... you don't need to tack a top on cart... just work in the cartridge dimensions and us some negative space...
  3. the 14xx combination remake with ALL the modz and all the old stuff brought up to the latest bestest greatest iteration of themselves... shotgun 33.6 modems w/ fax and voicemail, multidrives, etc etc etc...
  4. The XE remake made perfect sense in that the XE machines have power path issues as well as poor quality thin traces... XL's don't have these issues. If it's just something to do that's cool. Many people can handle working on the XL's just fine but destroy their XE as soon as they touch it with an iron.
  5. most of the issues are simple fraction of an inch/mm/whatever-unit-you-are-using interference by electrolytic cap etc. ever so slight movement or low profile alternatives on a new pcb would avoid the issues.... slight placement adjustments are all that are needed in most instances.
  6. only one device I know of can't handle the ATA command correctly.. you know the command that answers a call even if autoanswer isn't set... well... that just might be a problem since just about all modems work that way or have a similar command... so if all else fails use something up to the task like APE, Cygwin, lantronix, pearle, etc... they all work correctly and get along with all of the serial interface devices be they sio2pc cable, Rverter, 850, P:R:, MIO, Black Box etc etc...
  7. if the 800XL is still 64k, I'd put U1M in the 800XL... the 850 and fujinet both respond to the same poll request so only one can be on at a time. they both respond to the polling and send their handler to the Atari. If you are not hearing the handler load from either device then you have an issue. If you hear the beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep then the handler is loading. That is how that works... using an RBIN would not SIO load the handler and there would be no beep... an RBIN would still have the handler in it's code as well as directly control an 850. You would still hear the 850 make noise through SIO as it switches modes and usually you will hear it in use... it's noise and clicks correspond to the selected baud rate to a degree. You would have to post whatever file you are using for handler installation if you want people to check it and make sure it's what you think it is. You have other issues going on if you are seeing error 143's. check your cords and make sure fujinet is firmly connected to a good sio cord, often the fujinet fail a direct sio insertion on earlier fujinets.
  8. fujinet responds to the 850 poll and loads it's own handler... I don't think you have a grasp on how the 8 bit devices work or even the fundamentals of how they respond on the SIO port...
  9. The forum constantly has issues with it's niceties, trivia, fact sheets, etc etc etc... links withing posts pointing to the glossary and on the main page etc. fixing these broken parts would give the forum back it's class and make it much better for old as well as new members and visitors... https://atariage.com/common/glossary/glossary_actiplaque.html https://atariage.com/company_page.html?SystemID=2600&SystemFilterID=2600&CompanyID=11 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=342 https://atariage.com/company_page.html?SystemID=2600&CompanyID=8 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=3 https://atariage.com/label_page.html?LabelID=5 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=82 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=269 https://atariage.com/company_page.html?SystemID=2600&CompanyID=30 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=355 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=134 https://atariage.com/company_page.html?SystemID=2600&CompanyID=11 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=218 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=693 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=581 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=278 https://atariage.com/company_page.html?SystemID=2600&CompanyID=21 https://atariage.com/company_page.html?SystemID=2600&CompanyID=22 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=281 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=584 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=161 https://atariage.com/company_page.html?SystemID=2600&CompanyID=27 https://atariage.com/programmer_page.html?SystemID=2600&ProgrammerID=81 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=879 https://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=763 priveledged dead links www.cesweb.org etc also are in the official mix of broken things... this is not meant as a complete list, in fact it's a couple minutes of browsing that turned up this much, if you spent even a half hour on it I bet it's just a full range within each field. some are hard coded ip addresses and http instead of https etc...
  10. but still not an card edge frame for the incognito itself, and no custom name emblazoned on it. That's the generic spacer.
  11. 8 bit free others pay, seems reasonable to me
  12. Reset circuit issues, there are a couple of threads about fixing up keyboard and reset issues... give elastasearch a whirl lmfs that for you... the search box is on nearly every page, but not all... it yields threads like this one...
  13. I'm still trying to figure out what is supposed to be changed to great enough effect to call it a whole new revision of FoRem XE Pro in any event? It's quite true that what is presented is incomplete and not working. The topic label is quite odd as you actually look at what is done and what is said. Odd very odd.
  14. I picked up some stuff and will be having some fun shortly, I'd do the same if you're mulling it over folks.
  15. Did you list this in the AtariAge marketplace as well?
  16. It's simpler than that probably, just an around the edges frame and top stabilization tongue. Marking it a cartridge width to pcb rail slit frame is all that would be required, emblazoned with incognito on the thick part. Very open air just grabbing the edges of the incognitos pcb in the slits and filling out the space a cart normally fills on the two sides, spacer tongue at the top
  17. sounds about correct, some doors are locked and need a key card, others are just controlled by switches.
  18. some x86 machines keyboards could and some couldn't bitd, so many game had qwe,asd,zxc as the keys so you could do diagonals... POP wouldn't need zxc... no need for diagonal down and s could be crouch / down, w / up, q /diagonal jump left, e / diagonal jumo right... etc... shift or control keys could be used as well so what's all the hub bub? bub?
  19. He mentioned arcade and then games... so one or the other...
  20. Plastic hobby sheets can do that. you have to make your own cookie cutter punch to be fast and clean...
  21. if it works on a real drive, it should work on whatever emulation device as well, the only caveat being actual hard drive use when one can't use an image slot and must use a hard drive capable DOS Homesofts solutions help make that more possible.
  22. truth be told, the demoscene and pixel artists of today could definitely give the Atari versions a nice face lift, while the work of vinscool would definitely help the music and sound... using xxl's research and work on compression... well the... in fact I know a team, a community of people who just recently released a number of works that accomplished very high standards for our machine. There are a handful of games that kick ass and take names because of it. Imagine what they could do... Atari Ultima remastered, I like the sound of that. 3,4,5, and perhaps the full monty doing 6 from the bottom up. Simply some of the best group of people have been hitting the Atari with a passion the past few years... it's an amazing time, thank you and consider this a project that could be challenging and fun... and may take some restraint not to go too far... ah heck, do it both ways! Tixelated characters perhaps? Maybe a little Soupp, the realm within Globe's grasp, it could be huge and XXL could make it fit in the palm of our hands. Such sphere would need the touch of ambiance the sounds now possible could give. There are so many more talented folks in community that might have a go at such an adventure... they would have to be courageous, and tenacious in order to do touch what some consider arguably the most iconic rpg on these old machines of all time!!
  23. the replacement material used was not firm enough, but my suggestion using 3d printed ones of the same flexible material used for 3d printed drive belts etc has been done, I have been told it works well. I think I provided links to the materials and videos of the belts etc making the pro and cons of differing material comparison etc.
