    I like all outdoor related activities. Right now I'm collecting as many 8-bit 3rd party and home brew carts as I can as there is no one in Portland who has any for sale. Looking forward to PRGE,and their swap meet.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I’d been waiting for a reliable way to put a UAV in a 600xl. I’d seen to many horror stories 😀
  2. Ok guys. I got two of these coming. I sent $97.65 USD for two of them ( incuding a paypal fee of $4.65 ). He has already updated the firmware twice and sent out instructions on how to implement it. You wil also need one of these : https://www.ebay.com/itm/1PCS-5v-CH340G-Serial-Converter-USB-2-0-To-TTL-6PIN-Module-for-PRO-mini-K9/222436686027?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D3ff01dcfb603485fae6c88dbde483ec8%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D222436686027%26itm%3D222436686027%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DUnbranded&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A2dca5b84-723d-11eb-932e-96fa77c2a0d4|parentrq%3Ab7601bed1770a0f119b49628ffe3e68a|iid%3A1
  3. This Atari 600xl has been upgraded to 64k. Video has not been upgraded. It is in EXCELLENT condition, as is the box. I have put it on the Official Atari 8 bit testing station and all the voltages are great (pic) and it passed all tests. The mylar Keyboard works 100%. The box has the original RF box and cable. I usually scrub and clean these, but this one needed no cleaning whatsoever. If you ever wanted a solid 600xl, this is it! I'm asking $120.00 + shipping from Portland, Oregon. PM me and I'll get a shipping quote from UPS. I take Paypal. Visit Eightbitfix.com for references. Thanks for looking - Ebay SUCKS
  4. If the chips are socketed , try reseating them. Leave the lid off and let it run for a minute. Touch the main chips to see if they are hot or not. A really hot chip indicates a possible bad chip. Old school, but it works.
  5. This Atari ST mouse has been taken apart, fully cleaned and tested. I'm asking $35. PM me and I'll give you a shipping quote from Portland, Oregon. It's my last one. Paul

  8. Had there been any progress on this Peter? FYI I’m currently putting Orion’s STe jagpad sd card reader through it’s paces.. what it can and cannot do.
  9. You can tap it free.. I used a flathead screwdriver, small hammer and a little wd40. I think there was a screw on the side I put the screwdriver on and gently tapped it free. It’s worked ever since WITH a happy upgrade 😀
  10. I got it to work. What I had to do was : Make a new folder named AUTO. I put Bigdos on it first, then the SDcard driver. Wrote the folder to A: on my PC. I left the card at 2gb and just transfer the files over with the PC. Mixed results so far.. but pretty cool for $22. Loaded up!
  11. So I'm having trouble setting up Orion's STe Jagport A SD card reader. 2 GB SD card is formatted in FAT. I run the program off the floppy, and I get this : ( pic ) It will not see the file I put on there after I run the program. I only put one - Sea of Color Demo - on the SD card. I know I'm missing something.. I HAVE setup a Ultrasatan in the past.. but I'm having no luck. Any help is appreciated, or if you have an SD card image I could use..
  12. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a great year!
  13. Bruce has one of those cable TV machines in his warehouse.. right hand side, half way down towards the back, on the end of isle.
  14. It's either the GTIA, ANTIC, or PIA in that order. You can either buy a new CPU card, or just the chips. I'd buy a new CPU card, then take out the old chips out of the old CPU card and test them individually, then toss the bad one. Extra chips for the future! Eightbitfix.com
  15. I was down there helping him last year for a few weeks. Maybe you got one I did All jokes aside, He will replace it as he is an excellent Dude. Stuff happens and he is really busy these days.
