  1. Season greetings! The preparations for the first lustrum edition of our annual 'Atari Invasion' are in full swing: #5 is alive! The take-over of the HCC Commodore Club meeting has 'Systems with guides' as working title and as details are still under wraps -in fact they are so secret we do not even know them yet- all we know is that each invader will present his/her system of choice to the crowd. With new additions to the crew, we seem to have all bases covered. As every year, the museum rack and display cabinet will be present, filled with new/different content. The info-beamer presentation is being updated with new code and content. Support has been added for dynamic updates so we can add and update content during the invasion. Hopefully the cameras for the live stream and time-lapse will stay put during this event, we ordered some new stands to ensure they do. There will be games, demonstrations and lots of time for socializing. Want to join in on the fun as part of the crew, let us known. If you just want to take a look around, we will be in 'het Trefpunt' all day on February 15 2020. Doors open at 10.00 and close at 16.00. Hope to see you in Maarssen! The Atari Invasion team

Click on the date below the avatar of the user that posted last, you will go to that post. At least in the theme (dimension) I currently use on my mobile

  5. Aaaah... Now I need to have one (sio2midi/Midi Muse) too! Finally something that can compete (volume wise) with that c64/Amiga/MSX noise in Maarssen
  6. Sorry to hear that. Most of us are at the same location during the regular HCC Commodore sig meetings (every 3rd saturday of the even months) feel free to drop by during one of those. You will notice a few guys with only Atari gear amongst the c64, amiga, spectrum and msx users: That would be us
  7. Good morning, Yesterday morning at approx. 8.45 (CET) the first invaders arrived at 'het Trefpunt'. We had less inventory than previous invasions, partly due to this years theme '40 years of 8-bit fun', but several cars full of invaders and their equipment nonetheless. We lost one of our own due to change in work schedule and two others were to arrive later. The ones that were on the scene started unpacking and soon there were Atari 8-bits, pc's and a C64 all over the place. The rack was transformed into a mini 8-bit timeline, next to it were some boxed and loose peripherals. IvoP found a spot to show his MIDI Muse prototype and the Invitro he created for NYD2019. On the other side of the rack Robbert had setup 3 screens to run the 8bit-slicks competition on. We were unable to obtain a dragoncart, so the C64 with RRnet card competed against a Laptop running Altirra and a Latte Panda SoC running - what else - Altirra. Everything was connectd to a 4G router so the competition would not be handicaped by the sometimes slow WiFi network. On the last table F#Ready showed off recent demos on real hardware and next to him MrAtari had setup his 800XL with WiFi SIO modem and connected to the irata PLATO environment. The display cabinet was filled with homebrew and classic hardware. Flyers, folders and bussiness cards were divided over the invasion space. IvoC and Francis brought some freshly printed posters besides more hardware. Our info-beamer screens showed demoscene and promotional videos and several Atari related images. And the A0 sized posters were put up for all to see. We met with several guests like Fred_M and Lamer Deluxe who later joined us at the After Party diner. Unfortunately the pi0 driven cameras were not sturdy as the fell face forward several times during the event. The live-stream failed miserably and we still need to go through the timelapse data, perhaps we can salvage some pictures from it. Even though there were some set backs, we believe the invasion was once again a success. We would like to thank 8bit dude for the extra support with his great party game 8bit-slicks, tschak909 for all his work on irata and clients and ofcourse the Commodore Club for providing us with plenty of space. For all pictures, check our flickr space...

  8. All, With only six days before our invasion, a quick reminder for the Dutch crowd and all interested in joining in on the fun... For those unable to attend, there are plans to live stream the event, but at the very least our time-lapse camera will document the event. Pictures and videos will be posted on our FlickR space and announced here and on our website. Although we've experienced that plans do change, even at the last minute, here's what we think will be there: Museum Rack (4 shelves of Atari 8-bit hardware) Display Cabinet (filled with home brew and other goodies) Demo Scene area (30y celebration of 'The Big Demo') (Online-) Gaming area (8bit-slicks competition) Modern area (FPGA, Emulation, etc) Atari eXperience Locations CX481 (The Entertainer) PLATO demonstration As always, the info-beamer presentation has been updated with new content, there will be plenty of friendly Invaders on-site and Atari stuff everywhere you look. We hope to see you there or online in either the 8-bit slicks competition or on iratA. The Atari Invasion team

  10. Season greetings! The preparations for the 4th annual 'Atari Invasion' of the HCC Commodore Club meeting are in full swing. As we send out updates to the crew, the Invasion plans take shape: celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Atari 8-bit homecomputers will be our main focus. AI2k19-Flyer by Atari Invasion, on Flickr Without spoiling too much details, here are some of the ideas we have for the Invasion: The museum rack and display cabinet will be there as usual. We will take you on a trip through time, with our 'eXperience Locations'. We will have online, multi-platform, multi-user events. Not just the info-beamer screens will show moving pictures and information: our own E.R.I.C. - if time permits - will have a spot amongst Atari 8-bit home computers performing tricks they were never designed for. Ofcourse we will make sure that there is still plenty of space available to play games on Atari computers and emulators. Want to join in on the fun as part of the crew, let us known. If you just want to take a look around, we will be in 'het Trefpunt' all day on february 16 2019. Doors open at 10.00 and close at 16.00. See you there! The Atari Invasion team
  11. It seems that we found a great excuse to solely focus on the Atari 8-bits during the Atari Invasion next year... More details will follow in a seperate topic.
  12. Interested, maybe even *3 Depends a bit on shipping costs to Europe.
  13. User tf_hh still sells these: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/260646-new-hardware-atari-400800-super-color-cpu-card/ He opened a thread here on AA with all the projects he has available.
  14. Not meaning to hijack this thread, but wouldn't it be cool to have the Pi function as more than one device over the same SIO port? For example, act as both a modem and a floppy drive? Tell you what, it works already I have a (non systemd) version of raspbian running and here's what I did: Create a symlink to the serial device you use (ttyAMA0 for the GPIO level converter option, ttyUSB0 for a SIO2PC/USB device). sudo su - MYSERIAL=ttyUSB0 cd /dev ln -s $MYSERIAL $MYSERIAL.1 printf "\nT2:23:respawn:/sbin/getty -L %s.1 19200 ansi\n" "$MYSERIAL" >> /etc/inittab init q ps -ax | grep $MYSERIAL This should output something along the lines of: 2240 ttyUSB0 Ss+ 0:00 /sbin/getty -L ttyUSB0.1 19200 ansi Now, start sio2bsd or use the webgui for it, use aspeqt/respeqt and you are able to load floppies and use a terminal at the same time! Enjoy! Senor Rossie Another idea: Link the Pi (Raspberry, Orange, Banana, etc) to multiple atari's, using multiple serial interfaces (A BananaPi has 3 serial interfaces on board. But you can have the level converter and a SIO2PC/USB interface connected at the same time too) each can act as a terminal and have its own floppy dive using its own sio2bsd process.
