  1. I would love to see an atari 800 mini with enhanced graphics sound and processor options. I'd buy that without hesitation. That or a 600xl mini.
  2. Amazing how big the zx spectrum community can be so big as to get a project like this of the ground so fast. Do you think if someone was to come up with a new yet retro backward compatible Atari computer. It would be a success? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-53765852
  3. Well they're mostly old personal recordings of some friends bands I used to hang with way back. But also some old Xfm (UK alternative radio station) recordings when the radio station was actually cool in its infancy. Which I will probably have to convert to digital at some point. I haven't sorted through them just yet but I expect mostly heavy metal music. Also I have a fair collection of atari games on cassette.
  4. I just picked a load of my old atari gear up from storage. I also picked up a load of old audio cassettes. No longer having a Walkman or cassette deck I was wondering how I could play them through the atari. Wasn't there some poke or command to do so obviously cload will cancel out with an error. It's been too long. Can't remember help please.
  5. I tested this version with Altirra 2.90 hardware 600/800XL, Internal basic off, Video pal, Disable P/M, Disable Playfield Collisions Left it running for 10 mins on warp speed no crash. Xevious (1984)(Atari)(US)[h Paul - I.C][5200].xex
  6. I found this to be a problem too but only in the redux version. Will have to play the original again and check.
  7. Not true atari 8 bit Bosconian has proven this with the addition of better presentation,. Music, etc. There is always room for improvement.
  8. Oh great, thanks I will check them out.
  9. I have genesis controllers and 7800 dpad controllers. I know the 7800 controllers work on my xegs. I would have thought they too could be programed for use of the second button. Anyway back to topic great work on moon patrol. I woukd love to see Defender get simular treatment. I love the atari version but if I had the knowhow I'd have added the arcade title screen and would have tried to change the sound effects to be closer to the arcade. Especially the game start sound. It's so iconic. And obviously like I mentioned before have use of a second button for the smart bombs at least.
  10. I had no idea it was possible to make use of the Genesis controllers extra buttons. It would be great to see this implemented for use in Defender - Smart bombs/ Hyperspace and Dropzone - Smart bombs and Cloak. This would reduce the difficulty level to some degree and save atari space bars from being damaged when being smashed down with your foot. Well at least that's how i used to play it.
  11. Id love to see Chase HQ ported from the spectrum.
  12. Thanks I will do that I need to get the 7800 up and running soon. The idea is to set up a dedicated Atari section within the games night. I also have a couple of more computers to pull out of storage a 65xe and 800xl asuming they still work.
  13. Thanks It is rather good isn't it I had to ommit the atari 7800 as I am just about to attempt the video mod. The problem i have is the kit i purchased from eBay only came with the small PCB and RCA jacks but no wire. Not sure what wire I am supposed to use, as having checked all the guides I found here at atariage and on youtube. That is the one detail that is lacking. Any ideas? Is it just a case of cutting wires from an RCA audio and video cable?
