  1. I'd second the "support Steve" cause. APE is a great product and IMHO opinion the Atari 8 bit world would be poorer without it. I use it along with one of Steve's interfaces all the time. Now if only he would port it to OS X ... ;-)

    Did you know about SIO2OSX ?

     

    SIO2OSX totally rocks. I use it with a Sweex Serial2USB adapter on my iMac.

     

    I second the comments people have made about the main reason to register APE, or SIO2OSX, is so that the guys behind the software can continue developing these products for us. Without their input, I think the whole A8 scene would be very different.

     

    Thanks Mimo and Pengwin for the SIO2OSX info. I saw it a while ago and then must have forgotten about it. Pengwin, is this the serial to USB converter you use ? Sweex I have a different manufacturer's one here I've used to access the console on some of my linux boxes but I've heard only certain chipsets work well with SIO software.

     

    Hmm, I guess I should just try it :roll:

     

    This is the one I have: http://www.sweex.com/producten.php?sectie&...amp;artikel=291

    However, I cannot seem to get the tape functions of SIO2OSX to work. It is probably something to do with the adapter, but as I only use disk images, it's not a problem for me.

     

    I was lucky with this adapter, it was cheap, and the first one I tried. I do understand there can be soem other issues with other USB adapter chipsets, so it really is a case of 'try and see'.

  3. My login details aren't recognised any more :(

     

    Sorry about that. The original database I had of login details is no longer there. The chatroom software on there right now is the unmodified software supplied from Hot-Things. I will be customising it soon, but I won't be hacking the code this time as I seemed to make it unstable the last time I tried.


  4. Does anyone know if the latest version of PSPAtari will work with a standard PSP with 3.9 firmware?

    If so, how do I get it to work?

    It's very easy to install the Dark Alex M3 firmware. No need to use exploits in software to install it now with the new methods. Definately worth using a custom firmware. Dark Alex allows you to soft swap firmware also if you are worried.

     

    Thanks, I'll have a look at that. As I have only just got the PSP, I don't really want to start messing too much with the firmware, unless I know I can restore it back to the Sony 3.9.

     

    BTW: I have a fat PSP.


  5. Other than this forum at good old AA is there a popular site dedicated to the Atari computer series? Something like the lemon64 site for the Commodore? I'm interested in getting into collecting 8-bit games on disks and am looking for a good trader forum. The AA

    marketplace is good but very cartridge centric.

     

    Have a look at Atarimania


  6. It was only a year or so ago that I would wait with a certain amount of anticipation to the next EA game or the latest Capcom.

    These days, I find myself looking out for the latest XXL conversion. You have really livened up the scene for me.

     

    Afraid you can't take all the credit though ;) Yoomp!, Crownland and the up coming Lords of Midnight are also amazing. It's great to know that there is talent like this out there still being put to use on such a great machine.
