      That wasn't what I meant when I said I was breakin' in my new joystick!

    Anything that runs on my eMac G4 from OS X, OS 9, and mostly Ubuntu 14.04
  3. Ok on Atariwinplus, what I do is simply start up BASIC on OS A or B, put it on 48k, put it on NTSC, then write a simple test program 10 rem cassette test 20 print "yes it works!" I go to the tape drive settings, make a New CAS image, clicked the rewind button, and then typed in CSAVE then hit return twice and then nothing happens but the long continuous beep.
  4. well nice idea but I don't have a single mac in the house. Only PC
  5. Ok I've just tried those programs.... AtariWinplus 4.0 still doesn't work and yes I've enabled the SIO patch but it just gets stuck on an endless long beep without writing any data on the CAS image. With Atari800, I can't even seem to get the application running. I don't know if it's because I'm using Windows 8 or something but it simply won't even start and go to one of the BIOS.
  6. Would there be any possible way to save files in cassette format on any Atari 8-bit computer emulator? I looked at many various emulators such as Altirra, A8E, Atari800win plus, etc, and I can't seem to find any option on any of those for what I'm trying to do.
  7. I have an Atari 410 that is probably in need of new motor to run the mechanics. I did check to see if any of the bands had come loose but they were all in place. There does seem to be power going into the unit because it sends a garbled signal to my XE computer but the mechanics simply do not move to run the tape. Atari 410 test.mpg

      XP was great! Going to miss it!

      Still using it on a MAME machine and for SIO2PC. Otherwise, I left for OS X 7 years ago. But XP still serves me well in these limited areas.

      If it still works, keep it instead of junking perfectly good machines just because Microsoft doesn't want to support the software anymore.

  10. I have an Atari 2600 Darth Vader 4-switch model that's giving me a fuzzy picture. I'm using a gold Radioshack RCA F to coaxial M... Yes I have tried replacing the cable because it seemed quite obvious when I moved the wire the static patterns changed... However I clearly tried using a shielded RCA cable and no improvement; which was weird because the cable I used never gave me a crystal clear picture on my Atari XEGS... Then I tried the 2600 cable on the XE as well to see if it really was the problem... It gave a perfect picture on the console as well... Another thing would be when I plug in a controller into the 2600 and move it around, the static patterns change as well... Any diagnosis?

    Yes my collection

    Pretty much all my games, programs, and hardware.
  12. I know this is such a stretch but would there be any possible way to connect my Atari XF551 floppy disk drive to my Windows XP computer? I'd like to transfer Atari files to and from my PC. I really can't get an internal 5 1/4 floppy drive for the XP because they are just too pricey.
