  1. SIO2SD firmware was developed by Jakub Kruszona-Zawadzki and is available for download on his webpage: http://sio2sd.gucio.pl/wiki/SoftwareAVR_en I guess that Lotharek's customized firmware does not differ from the Jakub's one, probably only the original text was replaced with "lotharek.pl". Jakub published his source code of the old 2.5 firmware, but for some reasons he didn't do it for 3.1, although many people asked him for that.
  2. Hi, I enabled SIO2SD emulation, but the sio2sd.xex configurator shows no files. Is there any way to configure SIO2SD emulated device (to tell which directory should be read in) or is it hardcoded ? Regards Marcin
  3. Hi rcamp48, With your 4-wire cable you shouldn't do it, however there is a workaround if you have enough RAM or a PBI Hard Drive - you can use RAMDISK (or HDD). You should connect only one SIO device at a time (either PC with RespeQt or 1050). Copy stuff to RAMDISK/HDD, unplug SIO device, plug another SIO device and copy stuff from RAMDISK/HDD to the SIO device. Or better buy 6 wire cable: https://www.ebay.de/itm/6PIN-Original-FTDI-FT232RL-USB-to-TTL-RS232-Serial-Adapter-Cable-for-Arduino/202380957889 Connect CTS to "command line" (SIO PIN 7) Connect TxD to "data in" (SIO PIN 3) via diode (for example 1N5817) this way: Connext RxD to "data out" (SIO PIN 5) Connect GND to "ground" (SIO PIN 4) DO NOT CONNECT 5V to the SIO port !!! In RespeQt settings select "Hardware Handshake" and "CTS". This is recommended solution, because you can connect and use all SIO devices at the same time.
  4. Yes, but only if you connect multiple SIO devices to the Atari. If the PC (with RespeQt) is the only one SIO device than it does not matter. 4 wire cables do not support hardware handshake, so it better to spend a few more $ to buy a 6 wire cable with CTS signal, but as mentioned above a 4 wire cable will do @rcamp48 you can change the write delay setting to 0ms, since it is only relevant if you use SIO2BT.
  5. Yes, game piracy was legal in Poland until 1994. Anyway Mapasoft didn't officialy sell games, but they had a "game copying service", so you could come to Mapasoft with your own tape and they would copy games to it for you https://translate.google.de/translate?hl=de&tab=wT&sl=pl&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fretrospekcja.net.pl%2F2015%2F11%2F05%2Fsklep-z-pirackimi-grami%2F
  6. In Cracow (Poland) in the 80-ties there was a company "Mapasoft". They offered games for ATARI on tapes, since the most of ATARI owners in Poland had XC12 devices. Later they also introduced "Turbo" modifications for XC12 with TOS (Tape Operating System), so I assume they had knowledge to hack Boulder Dash.

  8. Even SIO2SD has file/directory length restrictions (up to 39 characters). Since atarionline.pl uses TOSEC naming convention, the archive with the game collection can not be used with SIO2SD anymore... I switched to Homesoft, where long names are slightly shorter, but still too long for SDRIVE. Perhaps somebody could write a TOSEC parser tool for stripping down unnecessary info from the long file names, although 8+3 could still be not enough for a meaningful name...

  10. Thanks. I also have tried this module, but as you realized, it is not that easy to change the baudrate, etc., as it is with the original HC-06 (used in SIO2BT) and with your config tool
  11. Could you please post a picture of this BT module?
  12. The first edition of ABBUC licence plate holders was not even compatible with Euro style... At least they were too small for my standard size german plates.
  13. I'm not saying that v2 does not work. I'm just saying that 7407 has unused buffers, which can be used for free. That's all.
