  1. Yeah, Benj Edwards is currently one of the best retro-gaming/computing authors. Articles from him are always top-notch.
  2. Turban or not? Btw, excellent port so far. I am looking forward to the final game!
  3. Hi guys! I am trying to find some reliable information concerned with the graphics screen in Fairchilds Channel F. I am interested in its internal organization and how the actual TV screen is made out of the VRAM content. Is there any literature/website concerned with this particular topic? I have checked viswiki and other sites, but couldn't find anything that really sheds light on it (apart from some VRAM remarks). Best regards, Knurri
  4. Come on, if you don't like it - don't buy. Or do something better. What's the point of your rants?
  5. While we are at it: who did the artwork of the Star Raiders box?
  6. Sorry for the necrobump. Are there any reliable sales figures or other business related numbers for Atari 400/800 games available. Star Raiders would be of particular interest to me.
  7. Very nice find, thanks for scanning and uploading!
  8. Anyone knows the story behind this label variation?
  9. While browsing my game stuff I found a weird manual for Star Raiders, which states "Cassette" version for the Atari XE Game System. Please find photos of the manual attached. I was not aware there was a cassette version by Atari. The manual explicitly gives loading instructions for XC12, so there is no spelling mistake on the manual. Has anyone ever seen the tape itself and perhaps the box?
  10. Hi! What game is to be seen on the photo? https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Drukte_op_Firato_in_RAI_drukte_bij_spelcomputers,_Bestanddeelnr_933-0620.jpg
  11. Nice thread I am the author of many Atari related articles in German wikipedia (e.g. Atari 400, Atari 800, Atari 1200XL, Atari 600XL, Atari 800XL). Currently high quality photos of 1200XL, 600XL and 800XL computers are missing. So, grab your computers and cameras - any help is highly appreciated!
  12. As the thread name indicates I am not interested in the completion date but the official release date.
