  1. I was wondering if there is an image of the Atari Assembler cartridge available anywhere that I can use with Atari800MacX. I have the cartidge, but as can be seen in my last post (Disaster), my Atari is temporarily, or permanently, out of action and I would like to finally get around to teaching myself 6502 assembly.


    I know there are better assemblers out there (Mac/65 for one), but I would like to use the same assembler on the emulator as I will be using when I either fix my 800XL or get a replacement.


    Thanks in advance.

  2. Hi, I've been lurking around this forum for some time now, just watching what's happening in the world of the Atari 8-bit. I finally decided to do some programming on the Atari, not done any since about 1988, so I dug out my trusty 800XL and 1050 DD. Plugged it all in turned it on and....




    The power light came on on the Atari, but there was no signal to be found on the TV screen and the DD failed to start reading the DOS disk I had inserted.


    I know this is a long shot, but does anyone have any ideas as to what could be the problem??


    I remembered that the Oric, Spectrum and Atari all used a similar frequency on the TV, so I made sure I could tune it in to both of them, but still no luck with the 800XL.


    Last time I started it up was about 2 years ago and I had no problems then, however, I have moved house and I'm wondering if this sort of thing can occur in transit and whether it is easily fixable.


    Thanks for reading this and for any responses.



  3. Hi guys,


    First of all...


    Hi, I'm new here and would just like to say that it is great to find other people like me with Atari 8-bit machines (I'm running an 800XL with 1050)


    Anyway, on to my question. I have recently decided to start coding in assembly with my 800XL and to this end, I have bought the Atari Assembler/Editor cartridge (I know from reading posts that I should try to get hold of a macro assembler like Mac/65 or use an emulator - I have Atari800Win - but I got this cart for £5 and it should be fine to start with at least). So, like I said, I got the Assembler, but its loose with no manual. Does anyone know where I could find an online copy of the manual, or possible purchase one (I'm in the UK)?


    Thanks in advance
