  1. Earl Rice, who worked on the 1450XLD at Atari also recommended using 74HCT chips. He wrote a 4 part series in Antic magazine called 'Parallel Bus Revealed'. http://www.atarimagazines.com/v3n9/Parallel_Bus.html http://www.atarimagazines.com/v3n10/parallelbus.html http://www.atarimagazines.com/v3n11/parallel_bus.html http://www.atarimagazines.com/v3n12/toolbox.html
  2. Hey Bob. What are the cap values on your 1090?
  3. Hello, I've had this 5200 for about 15 years now and am now ready to part with it. The price is $70 + shipping within the United States. The console, games and controllers have been tested and are in working condition. All controllers have been cleaned and the joysticks reconditioned. Because of the maintenance required with this console and the possibility of the average gamer junking it, I want it to go to a good home. Will accept payment through PayPal. Note: There is some cosmetic damage to the unit. Part of the plastic case has chipped away and there are some scuffs. One of the joysticks has a tear in the rubber boot and there is also some gunk on the Trak-Ball case. Items are listed as follows. Console: 1 5200 4-Port with power supply and auto switchbox. Controllers: 2 joysticks 1 Trak-Ball Games: Berzerk Centipede* Defender Dig Dug The Dreadnaught Factor Galaxian Jungle Hunt Kangaroo Missile Command* Ms. Pac-Man Pac-Man Pitfall II: Lost Caverns Pole Position Q*bert Qix RealSports Baseball RealSports Tennis* River Raid Soccer* Space Invaders* Star Raiders Super Breakout* Zaxxon *Plays great with Trak-Ball. Thank you for looking.
  4. Best Electronics should have them in stock. I ordered a replacement connector and 800XL Stackpole keyboard from them 4 years ago. Have you tried cleaning the connector with isopropyl alcohol?
  5. No, James Morgan cancelled it at Atari Inc. From the Atari Museum page: "In September of 1983 James Morgan took over as head of Atari and among the numerous projects slated for cancellation was The Graduate and it was never released."
  6. Yes, more or less. Though in 1979, Jay Miner and Joe Decuir initially envisioned the system as a low cost game console/computer that would have looked more like an 800 or 500 with a built-in keyboard. GAZA was a separate 68000 project.
  7. No. The OS was largely programmed by the Amiga team (Carl Sassenrath, RJ Mical, Bob Pariseau, etc.). AmigaDOS was done by Metacomco. On the hardware side, I think it was Commodore who decided to remove the NTSC circuitry from the Denise (Daphne) chip.
  8. Yes, I especially wonder what the DOS portion would have been like. Per the 1984 contract update, if each company were to develop different operating systems then software should be converted between the two. Mickey's BIOS would have been a subset of Exec (i.e. controllers, graphics primitives and other I/O).
  9. *BUMP* This is an NTSC 800XL. Notice the Warner Communications text is absent from the label. Could this be an Atari Corp. version? There are also no socketed chips on the motherboard.
  10. Hello, I have begun selling various vintage computer items for those looking to repair them. The 600XL/800XL keyboard listed below is the first order of business. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-Keyboard-600XL-800XL-Stackpole-For-Parts-/271327035132 Thanks, Bernard Anderson
  11. Yes, Atari developed DOS 2.0D for the 815. http://www.atarimuseum.com/computers/8bits/400800/815/815.html
  12. The XE and ST series both debuted in 1985, during which time Atari (Atari Corp.) continued to support the 2600, 5200 and XL computers.
