  1. Thank you theloon. I will do that. I appreciate the advice and help. Ed
  2. Hello all, I am sure this question has been asked a million times but I am hoping that you kind people will save me some time and error. Where is the best place to get MAME ROMs online? Thank you in advance for your help and valuable time. Ed Cheek
  3. My apologies SpiceWare. I did not mean to confuse the username and rank. Thanks again for your sound advice and help. I have gotten started writing my first program. I will enjoy this.
  4. Thank you Quadrunner for the links. It has the source code for my all time favorite Atari game, Starmaster. What editor / assembler do you use?
  5. I would really enjoy being a beta tester. Sign me up. I ordered a Harmony Cartridge yesterday so I hope to have it very soon. Ed Cheek
  6. Thanks to all who are answering my questions. I will enjoy this. I am using both Linux and Windows 7. I dual boot and use both operating systems. I got Visual Batari Basic to run about an hour ago. I had a few problems that I figured out thanks to all of the information on the forum. Please keep posting any suggestions. I have programmed assembly language in the past for the Commodore 64, Texas Instruments 99-4/A, and some SX programming. It has been a very long time and I didn't do a great deal of it. What I would like to do is find some good code that someone else has written and figure out how the program works and make modifications. Something that has good descriptions. Basically reverse engineer it. I have always learned best that way. I hope to have something to run in a few days. Please keep any suggestions and files coming. I hope to be active and contribute here. Thanks again, Ed
  7. Hello all, I am a new to this forum. I would like to program the 2600 as a hobby. I have been reading posts this morning on how to begin. I am hoping that some of you nice folks can save me some time. I have read about DASM, batari Basic and others. Can someone answer a few questions for me and save me a great deal of time. Maybe this will help others also. What editor assembler software is used most these days? What do you recommend? Please leave a link. I have downloaded Barair Basic and and IDE and will install it today. Any useful links? Any other software that you folks use? I downloaded Stella and I have ordered a Harmony cartridge. I know these questions have been asked before but I ask for your patience and help. I hope to start writing some code today if I can get the software I need in place. Thanks to all of you in advance. Ed Cheek
  8. Hi to all, I pulled out my Atari 2600 and cartridges on Friday for the first time in several years. I found the Harmony card online Saturday while doing a little reasearch game manual scans. I ordered it yesterday and I am really looking forward to receiving it. Has anyone found any problems or quirks that would be helpful for me to know about? It looks pretty straight forward and intuitive from what I have seen online. Are there any good resources for programming the Atari? I would like to try my hand at that. Do any of you guys program Atari? What editor assembler do you use? Do you know of any resources for EPROM's and cartridge parts? I really hope this forum is active and I hope to hear from some of you. This has potential to be a fun hobby. Thank you, Ed
