  1. Yup, same here. The price is completely fair, but a bit much when it isn’t adding anything in my particular case at the moment, I thought. Guess the joke’s going to be on me when I put an order in post-Brexit and land with stupid amounts in customs fees instead.
  2. Got it! And if I'd like to have different ROMs on different profiles? One of which being the standard AtariXL? Edit: Saw Santosp's answer after I wrote this. Excellent, will try as soon as the tv is free. 😃
  3. Aha, ok, I get it. But if I change one of the profiles to us an OS ROM from the SD card, then save to flash, it defaults back to the standard OS ROM on the next restart. Is there a way for me to put my custom ROM on the flash in parallell to the others?
  4. Your site seems to be down at the moment, @foft. I've noticed that my EclaireXL doesn't remember what ROM I used when it's been switched off. I guess this is because I don't have a "special settings file" that is mentioned in the documentation. Is there an example of such a file somewhere? (I know I could download the complete card image when your site is back up, but I'd prefer just the settings file)
  5. Ok, yeah that is the way it has to be done at the moment, yes. I guess it could be one or two steps simpler if there was a disk creation tool in the Eclaire. A write protect toggle would be nice as well, I’ve never actually thought about it since I’ve always wanted to write to the .atr files I have. I keep a couple of backups on my computer so I don’t have to be afraid of losing anything.
  6. I don’t think I quite understand what you are trying to do. What kind of data do you want to save and where? Is it the .atr file you want to have write protected?
  7. I don't see why not. As far as I know, there's no way to create an empty disk image on the EclaireXL, you'll need to create one and place on the SD card manually. (or just copy another .atr file and format it into a blank in the program of your choice) I've sector copied real disks to an SD2SIO previously and it works just fine, this should be even simpler, if anything.
  8. I put together this little fan box art tonight. Such a fantastic little board, love it! Thanks again @foft and @santosp! Now just wish we had injection molded cases, proper boxes and manuals and stuff. eclairexl_box_front.pdf
  9. I really need to get cracking on finding someone close by that can print me one of those. Or start thinking about getting a 3D printer. 😃 Great work on the label as well!
  10. Ooh, I assume there is a place to find all these exotic ROMs? Would be cool to try out. As a follow-up to my own issues above I can just say that it is probably an issue with the emulator I was using. The Swedish ROM worked just fine when I tried it elsewhere and is now my default ROM image in my EclaireXL as well.
  11. If there are more Swedes than me and @KlasO I can recommend the keyboard I bought earlier today: https://www.clasohlson.com/se/Mekaniskt-gaming-tangentbord-Exibel-GKX-C/38-7975#undefined Now for finding a solution for the keys. I am running the EclaireXL with my original Swedish ROM, so the keys aren't the same as in the US sticker set earlier in the thread. I'll get back with some photos when everything is in place.
  12. Exactly, I checked Amazon UK as well, same thing. Amazon FR actually didn’t say it wouldn’t deliver to Sweden but they didn’t have it in stock, so I’m guessing it’s the same from them. I’ll keep looking ...
  13. Have you seen them for sale somewhere in the EU? I am tempted as well but the import fees from the US makes it twice as expensive ...
  14. Oh, that’s perfect! Just what I was looking for. Now to find a reseller closer by ... Thanks for the tip!
