  1. That's so cool. I will most definitely want one!
  2. Yeah, that's what I figured and what I will do too probably. I was considering a way to tap into the audio signal directly, inject it along with dvi into a hdmi converter inside the machine, and then just have a single hdmi cable going out the pbi port or something like that. But that's probably not going to fit.
  3. Cool, but then what do you do for audio signal? Sent from my E6533 using Tapatalk
  4. I gotta say, I REALLY hate the idea of hacking ANY of my Atari systems' cases. Am I the only one having this struggle? I just can't bring myself to start drilling or dremel-ing on a perfectly well-preserved case that is ~40 years old. I plugged in my Sophia 2 with the case open and it looks absolutely glorious on the screen. Wow! But I just can't bring myself to properly "install it" and complete the job because I can't think of a way to do it without modifying something in a irreversible manner. Any suggestions(other than just get over it and start drilling and filing!)? -Eric
  5. Do you have a scan of the AT88-S1PD schematics or any other diagrams of AT88-S1PD? I find a lot of RFD documentation but little on the AT88 from a technical or electrical perspective. Thanks! Eric Sent from my E6533 using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah, using MyIDE II on it's own will has some memory conflicts if you are using the MYBIOS that loads into the Atari's RAM. The way to avoid that conflict completely is to pair MyIDE II with a SysCheck 2 which allows you to run MYBIOS without stepping on Atari's memory. I assume you could do this other ways as well if you have a way to run an alternate BIOS file. The key is to run MYBIOS without taking up the Atari's RAM to do so. I use MyIDEII + SysCheck running the MYBIOS ROM version and it's great for these situations. The other thing I'd recommend is try getting XEX's for those games you are having issue with from the Homesoft site. Many of those have been adjusted and will work even with the MyIDEII and MYBIOS running from RAM. http://www.mushca.com/f/atari/index.php
  7. Telengard by avalon hill. And the Dunjonquest series by epyx, including Temple of Apshai, Hellfire Warrior, Upper Reaches of Apshai. I played the heck out of those back in the day. And also Questron as already mentioned by zzip.
  8. This is great news. I got the latest issue in the mail and it looks completely LOADED with great topics and interesting articles, but I haven't had a chance to sit down with Google translate with it yet!
  9. I was going to say castle wolfenstein but I see it was already mentioned All of the Ultima games required heavy use of the keyboard. ZORK? Actually, any text/graphic adventure games for that matter. Those weren't especially popular on consoles! I wonder why?
  10. Yes, that's what I was trying to say. I know that's not the primary objective of the disk slot section, but it's how I find myself trying to use it (or MIS-use it?) more often than not.
  11. Multiple people have asked, so will look into doing this. -Thom YES, THIS! I've been thinking there has to be an easier way and I'm just being dense about it, but I'm always finding myself doing the same thing StefanD described... option to option/boot, hit disk rotate, reboot, etc. rinse and repeat as needed until you get to the image you really want to boot with. I know one of the primary intentions/purposes of the drive slots section is to be able to map multiple drives to multiple disk images so the system can just use them for multi-disk programs easily. That's great, but more often I am filling those 8 slots with various unrelated ATR images and just wanting to boot the system to one of them in no particular order. There's no easy way to just say "now I want to reboot and run what's in slot 3" for example. At least not that I have found. -Eric
  12. I bought from them in 2018. But I just checked and seems all my interactions with them were through eBay messages. Great covers by the way! I got one for my 800 and my 400 from them.
  13. Exactly, if we really want every one to wear a mask and get vaccinated here in the US, then there needs to be government restrictions limiting who can and who can't wear a mask or get vaccinated. Then watch how quickly all those same "rebellious" idiots insist on exercising their right to wear a mask and start demanding their vaccine!
  14. Is there any reason to install sophia 2 for CRT usage at all then? Seems the benefits are squarely aimed at modern/LCD displays or maybe vga too I guess. What about for "back in the day" CRT monitors like 1902, 1702, 1084, etc? Any benefit through svideo or ryg component break-out video path? (I have my sophia 2, but haven't installed yet) Thanks! Eric
