  1. Well I for one really hope the plan works out. I am still incredibly excited about this release! Good luck with all the logistics!
  2. What if we wanted you to pass it along? I’m number 45 at this point I don’t want to get back online at the end of the queue! So, close... In al seriousness are you still considering an option to allow us to move our order to another reseller and not lose our spot or is that off the table? I can’t believe how exited I still am for the Jag Gamedrive!

    Vectrex SD Cart?

    Not sure if this will help or not but one of the issues I’ve seen with prepping and cards on Macs is all the extra dot files the Mac leaves behind. I’ve had a number of flash carts and home brew devices choke if those files are there. My belief is the code uses to parse the fat file system can’t handle the existence of the dot files. Once I remove them via command line everything has worked okay.
  4. I'm #58! We are queue buddies!

    WTB: AtariVox+

    I'm looking to purchase an AtariVox+ if anyone has one. Thanks!
  7. I can't wait for this to get back on track. I had to switch back to waiting mode! We are all pulling for you to sort things out SainT. We know you will get there in the end. Good luck!
  8. This is a great tip. I'll definitely look into replacing the RAM next. Thanks so much Pearsoe!
  9. So I was able to build out a brand new PSU to work with the ADAM. Same state so it wasn't the power. I'm hoping to work on replacing all the capacitors on the board as a preventative measure and potential troubleshooting step. Is eBay the best place to look for the Video chip and CPU replacements?
  10. So I am trying to a restore an ADAM computer. I lacked the printer so I modified a PC PSU to power the system. I've ordered a new supply to dedicate just to the ADAM so this is a hold over. It was in unknown shape when I got it so I expected something to be wrong. After I powered it up all I got was a black screen and a tone. There is an intermittent sound like a startup sound sometimes but it just stays stuck. I did a massive amount of digging on the forums and it sounds like the ADAM is very sensitive to power supply voltage drops. The -5v channel on my jury rigged one is only around -4.7-4.8 so I assumed this might be part of the issue. So, instead of just waiting for the new power supply to arrive I did a little more digging. The tech manual troubleshooting does point me toward the PSU being an issue but I wanted to confirm with the experts here if it might be something else. That way I could get started ordering parts etc. I've already ordered replacement caps so I can refurb the board but those are also in transit. Cap replacement is generally my next step but I'm unfamiliar with ADAM behavior so I'm looking for any particular anecdotes people can share. Even confirmation I'm barking up the right tree would be great. Thanks!
  11. I was only mention it being an issue just to share wasn't meant as a complaint. I am more than happy with the Phoenix. I spent the morning going through games testing as much as I could out and that was the only glitch. Sorry if my comment came across as snarky.
  12. I was playing from SD but have since played again and got further.
  13. Had my first buggy experience. Girl's Garden seems to crash after you get to the second level.
  14. I don't have Children of the Night but Mecha 8 didn't sound exactly like the video. Unfortunately I don't have experience with it on real hardware to compare so I don't think I can be that helpful after all.
