  1. this is everything I have. Big file due to the manual PDF. Tricky_Tutorials.zip
  2. You really don't have anything to lose to try the conductive paint trick. It has worked for me well every time, and it really isn't very useful to you the way it is now I assume. You just have to be patient and a continuity tester or multimeter helps so you can test each trace as you fix them. I just use the stuff that comes in auto rear window defrost repair kits, which you can get from Amazon. And just use a tooth pick or a very very fine brush. I've done this to about 5 systems as "temporary fixes" over the years, and every one of them not only worked but have held up fine that way. In fact I have some new XL mylars I bought just in case, and haven't had to use them yet! One clarification though, I've never done this to a 800. Only for XL and XE.
  3. Homesoft already did it some way, with several basic 10 liners already converted to xex on the Homesoft website. TBXL and Atari BASIC at least, not sure about fast basic though. http://www.mushca.com/f/atari/
  4. Only TWO left !!! Order now before they are all gone for good. We will also include the physical copy of War Room for free (on a labeled 5.25" floppy disk and with color manual).

PM me if interested so I can provide quote for shipping.
  5. BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL... (I know I already posted under separate existing thread, but I wanted to be sure folks know about the bundle special tied to the few remaining units we have left. Plus that thread was really old. ) Ok, we still have a few copies left of the Boxed Collector's edition of Rain of Terror. Black Friday bundle deal !!... while supply lasts, we will also include the physical copy of War Room for free (on a labeled 5.25" floppy disk and with color manual). Great two-player game for the holidays. $45 USD in total for BOTH: Rain of Terror boxed edition AND War Room floppy+manual (plus shipping). PM me if interested so I can provide quote for shipping.

  7. I second the Homesoft site suggestion! "download all" is the easiest way to go, and they all work. And it's actively kept current and updated.
  8. Archon Zombies/Realm of impossibility World Karate ChampIonship Joust Are you considering homebrews and more recent titles too?
  9. Sweet! Time to get another shelf !!
  10. Check the connector that the ribbon cable plugs into. Maybe some debris, dirt, gunk or oxidation or something only on that contact point for that trace preventing a connection there? Just trying to think of the simple stuff first to rule out.
  11. I'd also say hobgoblin is pretty spooky.
  12. Well War Room has a halloween-themed easter egg hidden in it if you haven't already discovered it. Hint, you get to it from the title screen. From there, it's not hard to find. Once unlocked it will stay in Halloween mode until system is reset.
  13. I have my original 800, and my original 130xe from back in the day. Over time I've acquired a bunch of 800xl's, many more 130xe's, and a couple of 400's. But I only have one 1200xl. For the most part, the 1200xl works great, and other than the usual keyboard ribbon/connector mess that I fixed when I got it, it has no issues...except for one very annoying thing... The video intermittently (but very frequently, like, always) does this hiccup thing. I don't know the right way to describe it. But it does it all the time and doesn't matter what video output I use, it is always there. I also can't find anything it seems related to (tried all video out options, different cables, with cartridge, without cartridge, with sio connected and without, with joystick plugged in and without, etc.). It just always does it. I'd REALLY LIKE TO FIX THIS because I really like the 1200xl but it's just too annoying to use it this way, so I never do. This is a bad description I am sure, so I need to take a video of it and post the behavior. Any clues what that could be? -Eric
