  1. Have you looked at the Ultimate 1 MB? It gives you four flashable OS slots.
  2. Almost every time. I unplug the video cable and plug it back in until the screen is correct. Now I use a VBXE through a GBBS-8220 into the VGA port, so no problems now. :-)
  3. Nothing to add to the conversation, but the set up looks way to familiar. I currently have that Magnavox LCD TV on the left, and used a white cabinet almost identical to this one for my set up in the dorm room at college. :-)
  4. There's a built in command in Turbobasic XL that will do it for you: text x,y,t$
  5. Anyone have an example of using RMT for sound effects? Or multiple songs?
  6. I haven't had good luck with Colleen with hardware keyboards. I was hoping it would work on my Chromebook, but the keyboard doesn't. :-(
  7. I'd vote for the Unocart and build an SIO2PC-USB. RespeQT works really well, and you can build one for under $10. I use an old IBM Thinkpad for my Atari server.
  8. That’s Cloak & Dagger I believe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Brentarian was talking about DisplayPort, not mini-displayport. We have a few HP laptops and Lenovo desktops with DisplayPort. In fact, I believe the GTX 1070 in my desktop also has DisplayPort. Anyway, while the port is licensed, there isn't any fee involved. Bit for this device, DVI is fine.
  10. I think that's because we don't have a frame of reference. We have never seen a car in space like that, so it looks fake.
  11. And post pictures after you've done it! If you have a flash cart, load up INFO/soft 5000 so you can display information like a cable system in 1986.
  12. And I have the title ready, Your Computer Sucks. Or the more friendly title, Your Computer Sucks But Don't Feel Bad, They All Do.
  13. Have you modified your config.sys? If I remember correctly, SDX by default will only set up for 128K of RAM.
  14. Back in the day I only used Atari Basic and Turbo Basic, which really limited what I could do on the machine. I wish I would have invested in Action! or better yet, learned Assembler. Today I use either CC65 or MAD Pascal and cross compile. My current project is an excuse to learn MAD Pascal, and it is more approachable than C. I haven't touched Pascal in almost 30 years, but it comes back pretty easily. Assembler is pretty tedious, but you probably will want to learn it eventually. I'm slowly learning it myself.
  15. Pfft, it was AtariWriter or bust for HS and College!
  16. I put my personal sites behind Cloudflare and use their SSL. Easy as pie: https://gtia.com
  17. Now I finally have a reason to use this: Hopefully I can get a chance to dig through my boxes of Atari stuff and see if there is anything else. The cart came from an eBay auction of long ago.
  18. I’ve written stuff on the Atari using The Last Word and it works pretty well. I format the document in Markdown, so the only conversion I need to do is fix the line endings. Pandoc will convert the Markdown file into almost any format I want, even ePub or Doc. I use Altirra to pull the documents out of a disk image. I should automate that part, but it hasn’t happened yet. And I’m surprised no one has mentioned George R. R. Martin writing Game of Thrones with Wordstar on DOS. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. That is impressive. Thanks for sharing!
  20. Does the pmg library have a limit on how tall players can be?
  21. MaPa is correct, 59 fixed the issue. I used bcs because it would sometimes miss comparing to exactly 60. Once I get it working, I’m planning on fixing it for PAL too. Thanks all! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  22. Bill’s Gemdrop will use both buttons if you play with a Sega pad. I’m not aware of too many other games that will use it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  23. I've set up the following as a VBI, and it works for the most part: ; Constants VVBLKI = $0222; VBI vector SYSVBV = $e45f; jump to OS VBI RTCLOK = $14 counth = $604 countl = $605 ts0 = $600 ts1 = $601 ts2 = $602 ts3 = $603 *= $610 SETUP lda #0 sta countl ; Reset counter to 0 sta counth lda #<VBI; register new VBI subroutine sta VVBLKI lda #>VBI sta VVBLKI+1 lda #$c0; enable VBI's/DLI's sta NMIEN rts VBI lda #60 cmp RTCLOK bcs done lda #0 sta RTCLOK ; Reset Clock inc ts0 bne done inc ts1 bne done inc ts2 bne done inc ts3 done inc countl bne check1k inc counth check1k ldy countl lda counth cpy #$e8 bne exit cmp #$03 bne exit inc RTCLOK lda #0 sta countl sta counth exit jmp SYSVBV The VBI increments a 32 bit number every second located at $600. It all works except the code increments the number slightly slower than a second. Joe_z did the math for me, and every 1000 jiffies I need to add 1 jiffy since the clock isn't precisely 60 times a second. That's what the check1k procedure does, but it doesn't seem to help, the clock still runs slow. What did I miss? (p.s. This is a procedure in a larger MAD Pascal program.)
