  1. @atariportal Andreas - thank you for the temporary forum! This should actually have been done by ABBUC as soon as the server was shutdown due to security reasons. Don't worry about people blaming you for setting it up. They had their chance and everybody can see the results...
  2. That's right 🕙 It is really a pity, especially in the pandemic time, that the ABBUC communication channel is closed for so long. I hope it will be back before I forget my login...
  3. 2 Months Anniversary..........
  4. 1 Month Anniversary from the moment when ABBUC went extreme retro (no forum, just floppy disks). What is the status?
  5. Yesterday arrived in Hildesheim 💾
  6. Today I finally found time for my 2600 and followed new instructions in this thread. I removed configuration jumpers from UAV and directly soldered the signals. Unfortunately my UAV is directly soldered in place of CD4050, but I decided to keep it here. Thanks to everybody, especially to @alex_79
  7. @tf_hh @Bryan Do you know if cd4050 wiring in NTSC and PAL 2600jr consoles is the same? If the UAV is only designed to work with the NTSC 2600jr, it would explain the wrong colors...
  8. persistent option for baud rate would be cool 👍
  9. In short: you don't need the patch (the only exception, you would still need one is the 800 mode, since PBI is not available in this mode). One more remark: HSIO+BT is a mode, where Incognito code will try to load with 57600 baudrate and if this does not work, it goes down to 19200 SIO2BT mode is only for 19200 The original SIO2BT modules could be configured for 19200 (default) or for 57600. Fujinet in SIO2BT mode (after long press 'A') support 19200, however if you short press 'A' button in this mode, it will toggle between 19200 and 57600. The baudrate is not stored persistently, which means, after a long press, it always starts with 19200.
  10. The SIO2BT setting is older then 6 months. I do not have Atari at hand, but I quickly searched the internet for any picture showing SIO Driver settings. It can have following values: disabled / HSIO / SIO2BT / HSIO+SIO2BT
  11. Just in case someone else is looking for the ROMs in the future. You can find the original OS rom here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/atari800/files/ROM/Original XL ROM/xf25.zip/download And you can use customize it to work with SIO2BT using a patcher: SIO2BT Patcher release: https://github.com/TheMontezuma/SIO2BT_OS_Patcher/releases SIO2BT Patcher Description: https://github.com/TheMontezuma/SIO2BT_OS_Patcher If you are not sure what the parameters are for, use default values 🙂
  12. Now that you have a zip file with original ATARI roms, you can use a patcher and customize it to work with SIO2BT: SIO2BT Patcher release: https://github.com/TheMontezuma/SIO2BT_OS_Patcher/releases SIO2BT Patcher Description: https://github.com/TheMontezuma/SIO2BT_OS_Patcher As I mentioned in the above post, Incognito firmware from @flashjazzcat supports SIO2BT by means of PBI device, which is available only in XL/XE mode. If you want to use SIO2BT in 800 mode, the only way is to use a patched OS.
  13. Incognito supports SIO2BT in XL/XE mode -> Enable PBI and change SIO Driver settings to SIO2BT. There are no special plugins required.
  14. Yes, I basically commented out the code related to the start-up sound and recompiled it. Attached is the gcb file and all compiler generated files. MIDIctrl_PIC12F1572_NO_INTRO.zip
  15. Today my programmer arrived. You saved my time (and disk space) with the info that I only need IPE. Thanks! 👍 I watched the video with some hints on programming: and changed the power settings accordingly: Now everything worked and I was able to program the PIC. The hex file I prepared with the MULE theme worked! However the music is very silent in the first phase and louder in the second phase. One would need to tweak the MIDI file a little bit... Then I flashed the "silent" version of the software and verified that there is no boot-up theme, but I can still play MIDI sounds with a MIDI Player.
