  1. Just wanted to post a thanks. This is very cool, I really had not done much with Altirra since back early 2.1 erra, I am playing with 3.9 now.. wow.. so much you can do. I really love my real hardware.. but testing some hardware setups or programs etc.. (I am playing with BBSs) SO MUCH easier in Altirra.. super cool. I find it interesting that EMU on Atari 8-bit is SOO MUCH futher along than the ST.. When dealing with BBS stuff the 850 is in there.. with a modem device already setup for telnet emu.. fantastic!! Cannot do that with STEEM or Hatari. I am sure its in the docs, but when I want to save a "SYSTEM" config I have.. I use profiles? Also looking at firmwares etc.. and devices and being able to EMU my real hardware system .. I cannot seem to get the system to boot with a U1mb and a Side2 (even if no cf device has been configed) I am not positive but I thought in the U1MB firmware if I did not have a PBI device setup I could still use the SIDE2 as a loader.. just not a HDD.. but any combo of U1mb and Side2 is not working.. Note I have loaded the latest Flashjazz firmware in the devices. Ultimatefirmware for the U1mb 512k and Side2oss (allowing oss cart images?) for the side2. James
  2. Ok I am using No-ip.com.. they have a program I can download and run as a service in the background on the windows machine. the Router is a TP60 Archer TP-link.. it does port forwarding.. I did this years ago and did not need all this.. but I was just creating a domain front for my at home server. Now with the port forwarding.. I know I can set the external port to whatever I want.. 8000 for example.. but how do I know what port the UDS is operating on?? in the Device installer program?? James
  3. You have your DDNS.NET addresses - anything special needed on the Atari end? How is the ports assigned? James
  4. John is your setup for use as a receiver bbs? or for calling? I am trying to setup my UDS-100 now for receiving. For the heck of it I am trying to get AMIS running. It is expecting and autoanswer Hayes. I have a DDNS.net account.. but not sure how to setup that to point to the UDS. Also when I run AMIS not get the response.. sort of that I am expecting.. but since I dont know how to point the DDNS at the device yet.. not sure how to test it. james
  5. Russ, this is a very impressive collection, very well organized. Thanks so much. This work that you have done here, you should let more people know about! 8-bit and 16-bit. James
  6. All good everything running.. and Video jack installed from an old parts 800xl. James
  7. Good old world Mother Russia tech. built with parts from Lada. James
  8. All good. just need to check all connections.. which seemed fine.. replugged it all together.. now I get sound. So 400 and 800xl upgraded. Time to do the 800. James
  9. yeah.. thats a point Russ, do you have SIO2PC serial? or USB? I use AtariMAX serial, and have no issues.. Atarimax USB I know there is some configuration stuff that needs to be done. Its good old windows 10 thats the issue. James
  10. Well this is a little board I got from Orpheauswaking year ago? Same as most made.. I have my connections correct. Checked continuity of o - audio out to the pin 3 of the din jack.. all good. UAV working.. but no audio. Ideas? James
  11. Wow I dont even recognize most of what is on that. I just want to get my basic XEL to boot! Looks fantastic though. I have built all that I can for now.. waiting to get a pic programmer and then we will see about booting this thing up!! James
  12. Just to give everyone who contributed closure.. The U1mb board is sturdier than I thought. Works just fine. Now I just have to get a joy2pic to program the pic chips (that all my other programmers wont.. LOL) So.. the build is on hold until I can get some chips programmed. James
  13. There are a couple of boards that are slow in the works. I have some words that a group might be working on a memory board for the megaSTE. The fellow that does the MonSTer boards says he will do a batch in the future.. when .. not sure.. and there is also an accellerator board being developed that would up it to an 020 and allow full allowed memory on the MegaSTE. Just have to have patience.. which I have difficulty with.. lol James
  14. Right at this exact moment?? no.. nothing to add memory without HACKING.. to get TT expanded ram in the Mega STe. That is also what I am waiting to do. We have been working on different things.. some people are working on an accellator that will have memory on it.. but its a pure DIY.. they are not going to build it. Others have stopped production. Nothing at the moment. James
  15. ME??? I dont play games on BBSs at all.. I just want to call to call.. James
  16. I bought 2 of those Vonets wifi bridges on ebay.. neither worked.. stopped trying. James
  17. Thursday 3:37pm.. still no connection. James
  18. YES I will be getting one.. been waiting for a better shipping deal James
  19. YEAH. I hear you all on this.. I bought a Universal TL866 programmer than I could do GALs PICs Eproms up to 4mb - Supports over 4500 programmable chips.. and it cant do ANY in this project James Whats the cost of the Stickpic? either as kit or finished?
  20. They have all been tested and they all are good. James BTW.. what is it that the PIC chips picked for this board cannot be programmed with INDUSTRY standard PIC programmers.. Seems I now need one of these JOY2PIC.. to get my 1088xel going..
  21. ok.. after figuring out how to look at this without twisting my brain this is where I am at. So I have tested all the points I thought I messed up.. SO far .. knock on wood - once I stopped messing it up.. I got all the right connections tested and they work!!!! When I first contacted lotharek I showed him Pic 1.. frontside.jpg see the two that I pulled the pads?? Then he sent front P5 header.jpg back to me.. Saying that the pin7 of the P5 header goes to A8 which he says is the pin highlighted on the A8 location mask.png pic. His diagram to me shows pin7 to IO.. and lastpic.jpg shows the trace from pin7 up around 13 between it and 15.. i have checked I caused no bridges and to the point near the battery I get a good continuity check.. BUT I do not to the indicated A8.. I cannot see the traces under the battery.. can anyone confirm where pin7 goes to?? NOW - since I am getting a good signal on pin7 past the header.. I did not damage it from the desoldering.. so .. no matter where it is supposed to go.. if it oringally worked.. then it still does because I did not damage it.. SO do I just go ahead and plug all this into the board??? Can I do any more damage?? James
  22. Wish there was a way to edit something later.. but there is not.. the earlier pics show the wrong pictures.. Except for the diagram.. The pics I did.. so these are not from Lotharek.. just making sure no one is thinking he is sending out incorrect stuff. James
  23. OK.. just realised my last post picture was wrong.. here are the correct pictures. James
  24. Yes.. thats correct.. x1 is system clock and x2 is pal burt.. (I am ntsc - Canada) but they are both in the board now.. and soldered.. thats no biggie right?? James
  25. Question, what solder in x2 but socket x1??? I accidently solded in x1.. any issue? James
