  1. Main issue is long delivery times. I haven't bought much but was very pleased with what I bought. I probably wouldn't buy power supplies though!
  2. That's exactly how I did it once I noticed the option. Thanks for all for suggestions.
  3. I've got a text file with integer BASIC which I want to import into AppleWin. I tried Ciderpress but this seems to only allow Applesoft BASIC import (to tokenize a text file). Is there an equivalent of EXEC in Integer BASIC to read a text file as if it were typed so it gets tokenized and I can run it?
  4. Is there an English version of the Turbo Basic XL Compiler? I'm also confused by all the different versions (mostly hacked?) at https://atariwiki.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=Turbo-BASIC XL I assume most use the original 1.5?
  5. Does this mean PAL users with VBXE can switch to NTSC and finally see proper colours in artefacted games like Ultima?
  6. Thanks for the replies. I guess people are using these without issue and there is no risk of blowing the old workhorse up?
  7. I was looking at the old 800XL earlier and it stuck me that despite all the modern upgrades it still had the huge clunker of a brick power supply! (actually this was pointed out by the sniggering Other Half) Is there a modern replacement maybe with an on/off switch on it?
  8. I keep thinking vim should have an ATASCI mode which supports the Atari line ending (like the DOS one) but never quite get around to playing with adding one
  9. A bit late but https://archive.org/details/atari-8bit-jellystone-bbs-archive
  10. I don't think Microsoft ever released Multiplan (an early spreadsheet) on the Atari 8-bit although they released it on many other systems even things like the TI-99/4A. But I'm wonder if they did build an internal port since the forward to Solid Code seems to hint at it https://t.co/jmQXdOlmLL?amp=1 and it would have been easy for them. Has anyone heard of an Atari Multiplan? I wonder why it wasn't released? Maybe there was some aversion to Atari at Microsoft over the BASIC port?
  11. Thanks I'll check that out. The one I was thinking of was actually Hobgoblins which is different http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-hobgoblin_21453.html
  12. I thought I recently saw one on Twitter but a quick search only finds a few work in progress ones? What's the most complete?
