  1. Thanks. I adjusted the color pot and the color is good now. Unfortunately, now the keyboard seems to be half working. I've tried reseating the cable, which looks like it has a good connection, but some of the big keys (Option, Select, Start) and some of the letter keys aren't working. I am getting a replacement for it now. Anyone happen to know anybody that will refurbish old XE keyboards? I would rather send it to someone so that they can fix it and give/sell it to someone else rather than throw it away. Please let me know. Thanks.
  2. Hi guys, Recently purchased an Atari 65XE that has the Omniview XE roms in it. Things seem to be working ok, but when I power the machine on, instead of the READY screen being blue, it is green. Video seems to be ok, so I am wondering if it may be due to the ROM. Looking at the manual, it seems you can change the colors for 80 column mode, but I didn't see anything for changing it in 40 color mode. I wanted to use this 65XE as a gaming machine so that I could put my 800XL away, but the color issue seems to be affecting other graphics modes as well. I should note, other colors seems fine. I am using the composite (monitor) port with a composite cable. I have confirmed the cable works ok with the 800XL. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks. Cliff

  4. Hi guys. For anyone using SIO2Linux, I wrote a menu system using python and ncurses that should make selecting files for SIO2LINUX a lot easier. Here is a link to the menuing system: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5fxz9VjCX_CdWM5aWV5UUxobVk/view?usp=sharing You can find SIO2Linux here: http://www.crowcastle.net/preston/atari/ Here is the usage: usage: atrmenu.py [-h] [-d DIRECTORY] [-s SERIAL] [-i SIO2LINUX] Atari Menu optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -d DIRECTORY, --directory DIRECTORY Directory where your .atr files reside (default is current working directory -s SERIAL, --serial SERIAL Directory where your .atr files reside (default is /dev/ttyS0 -i SIO2LINUX, --sio2linux SIO2LINUX directory where sio2linux resides (default is current working directory.)

  5. Thanks. I have been looking at a few ideas over the past few days and hope to get started again over the next week. I am in the process of moving though, so it could easily get thrown on the shelf until that is done. =)
  6. Unfortunately, I am not sure if I am going now. My daughter, who usually loves going to pinball/video game conventions, now suddenly doesn't want to go. She has flip-flopped a few times though, so there is hope...
  7. Hey guys, I wanted to see if anyone was going to the White Rose Pinball show next week in York, PA. I may be looking to buy an older EM table if the right one comes around. I'll probably have on my AA or CGE shirt and my CGE hat, so if you see me, say hi and maybe we can play a game of pinball. I should be there Saturday. Website is here if you are interested: http://www.theyorkshow.com/ Cliff
  8. Heh. After 5 years, I finally came back to this thread because I had lost the code for the games I had written. Thank goodness for AA! Hoping to relearn bB to write some new games.
  9. Thanks for the welcome guys. So, is there a BB installer now?
  10. Hey guys. It's been a while, but I think I am ready to get back into Batari Basic and write some new games. Wrote a few before that I posted here under the user Cliff Friedel. I look forward to checking out the games that everyone has made over the past few years, talking to some of the people who worked with me in the past, and maybe make some new stuff! Hope to talk to everyone soon! Cliff
  11. Put up videos of CGE 2012 including speakers and the VGH Museum. Enjoy! Check them out here: http://www.youtube.com/user/cfriedel123/videos

  12. Ok guys. Finally got some of the videos up and running. Just go to my youtube channel and you can view the ones I got finished. 8 so far including 5 speakers, the videogame history museum, the freeplay arcade, and more. More will be coming soon. Click the link below to be directed to the videos. If you like, please feel free to subscribe. Hopefully everyone had as great a time at CGE as I did and more will come next time. Thanks.

  13. Just got back. I will be posting coverage of the event as soon as I can get it all organized and ready to go. I'll put the link here and crosspost it a couple of places so people can check it out.
  14. I will be posting everything in the next day or so. It was a great event. I got a lot of pictures, HD videos of selected speakers, coverage of the CG Museum, and some live UStream stuff (although the video on that is a little choppy). I will post links here once everything is edited and up.
  15. Great event! If you didn't know me, I was the guy recording everything with the iPhone. I plan to put up a lot of the coverage here in the next day or so. I will post the links here once I do. The speaker presentations that we went to, I got on the HD camera, so those look pretty good. The stuff I got on UStream that wasn't live was also good. The live stuff is really choppy from the internet being so bad in the Plaza. Learned some valuable lessons about vlogging events that I hope to use for the future. Hope you guys enjoy them!
