  1. Aha! I assumed that I downloaded the latest VbB (the one pinned in the first post of this thread), and when I saw the screenshot in the instructions (showing the different versions under "Title kernel" and "copy"), I thought the instructions were just out of date. But your comment made me think I was using the wrong VbB version, and I found build 568. That one had the right Img2Code version, and generated the right code. Thanks for taking a look! 🙂 Andres.
  2. Thank you so much for your message, RevEng. I used the Img2Code program that comes with vbb to generate the titlescreen data but, because I'm using Linux, that's the only component from vbb that I'm using (I prefer to use vi ). Attached is the titlescreen directory, so you can take a look. Again, thank you so much for this. Andres. titlescreen.zip
  3. Hello everyone, I just started to use the Titlescreen Kernel (I downloaded version 1.8), and I have a problem. I follow the instructions in the manual to convert the images to code, pasted them into the right files, and tried to compile my game (using batari Basic v1.01dreveng41); I get: Found dasm version: DASM 2.20.11 20171206 Starting build of Twitter_Life.bas batari Basic v1.01dreveng41 (C)2005-2017 2600 Basic compilation complete. --- Unresolved Symbol List free ram: 0 DPC free RAM= 603 49 bytes of ROM space left in bank 1 3342 bytes of ROM space left in bank 2 3058 bytes of ROM space left in bank 3 3883 bytes of ROM space left in bank 4 3883 bytes of ROM space left in bank 5 3247 bytes of ROM space left in bank 6 2661 bytes of ROM space left in graphics bank Fatal assembly error: Source is not resolvable. Build complete. As you can see, it indicates an "unresolved symbol", but it does not show anything. If I edit "titlescreen/titlescreen_layout.asm" and remove all the minikernels, except the "draw_space", then I get a clean compilation. Any ideas about what could be happening? In case it is relevant, I'm using DPC+ kernel. Thanks! Andres.
  4. But that's the thing with the 74LS42: it is there. So, is there a version of Incognito that, like in this computer, has a little board connected to the slot of the 74LS42, and the cables are connected to that board, and on top of it, the 74LS42?
  5. Ah! The computer came with ram boards, and it does work.
  6. I'm not super familiar with that board, but I was just looking at Lotharek's instructions on how to install it... The motherboard needs some jumper cables that are not present in this computer, and the 74LS42N is completely removed, and replaced with the ribbon cable, in Incognito. So I'm not sure... Are there different versions of Incognito, and maybe this one had a primitive one?
  7. Hi! A few weeks ago, I bought an Atari 800. Of course I wanted to open it to clean it and inspect it, so I was doing that a few minutes ago. While disassembling it, I found some strange ribbon cables in the expansion slots area: As far as I can tell, this computer has not been opened before, because still had the "Void If Removed" stickers in place, and a blob of silicone protecting a screw (of course, they could have been replaced after opening, but I doubt it). I looked for information about what are those cables, but haven't found anything. Here is a look on the side; the cables leaving the expansion area: As far as I can tell, the green-yellow-orange-red-brown cable connects to the 74LS42N chip, via a little board in between the motherboard and the chip; I tried to take some pictures, but the space is really small (and I did not want to remove the plastic casing for the cartridges and the expansion boards): (although blurry, the second picture better shows the 74LS52N on its board, and the cables connected to it). The purple-grey-white-black cable is connected to some pins of the left cartridge. Any ideas on what are these cables for? This is a newer 800, so the area for the expansion slots is not easily accessible (the door has screws, not the plastic levers to open it). Thanks! Andres. P.S.: While I was assembling the computer back, I realized that this one has to have been opened before, because the RF cable has been removed.
