  1. Interested mostly in the old titles... police quest, Larry, Manhunter etc... PC only please. PM me if you want to part with any of the above for a non eBay price 🙂 Thanks
  2. Thank you @oakcitycomics I updated the title.
  3. Thanks a lot for the offer but I also have an FZ-1... I thought the cartridge would be universal, isn't it? If not I'd better update this post...
  4. Title says it all 😀 Please let me know of you have one to sell. Thanks!
  5. Thank you all for the input and for sharing thoughts and/or memories. This is all part of enjoying collecting and using our beloved Atari (and maybe other computers and gaming consoles from the previous century), and also the fun being in such a lovely forum as the AtariAge!
  6. Oh, and also for completion, I had captured a picture of the messed up screen that I thought I had uploaded but apparently not. So here it is.
  7. You are right! Moments like this need to be captured! So here it is: - Falcon Speed running - Booting into DOS 6.20 - Slash screen of win 3.1 (not sure why black and white...) - Win 3.1 running - Win 3.1 screen saver kicking in! My wife is so proud of me right now! 😎
  8. I cracked it... 🙂 Windows was using falcxvga.drv driver (set in system.ini) and as soon as I changed it to falc_vga.drv and added that driver from the zip in c:\windows\system it all starts up nice and crisp! Maybe the falcxvga.drv was corrupted. It got too late last night after I figured things out and I just declared victory and stopped... As for the monitor, I have a modern LCD but I get the vga signal from the Atari falcon->vga adapter, feed it to a scan doubler/scaler and then into the monitor. Works great with all my retro computers.
  9. Yes! Thank you. I did manage to identify this card and in fact the software needed (other than DOS or Win) has been discussed previously here: http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=29235 The version of the files I have seems to have an issue with VGA, it starts windows 3.1 but the screen is distorted. I can barely see the windows and the icons... I will replace with the files in the link above and try again...
  10. Hi experts! Can someone tell ne what this card is? I guess since it has an Intel 286 processor it is a 286 emulator for the falcon? Thanks
  11. Does anybody have a recommendation for repair service for a turbografx CD? Thanks!
  12. Yeah, sorry, I do realize now that my original post was ambiguous at best... I am after a Spectrum. I updated the original post now. Which do you have?
  13. Hello, Does anybody have a Sinclair Spectrum ZX computer and willing to sell it? If so please let me know. I am also open to trades, I have quite a bit of Atari, Commodore and Amiga stuff to trade you for. Thanks!

  15. I am not at home, but when I get back I will take those measurements and let you know. Are you thinking of yet another use of it other than storing STs or 21 inch monitors?
  16. Thank you Lynxpro, this is very interesting information because, of course I opened it when I bought it and it was cut In fact I purchased it together with a 1040STF and now it makes all the sense in the world. I thought it was something that the original owner did but based on what you say this "mod" was more widespread than what I initially thought... I am really happy, learning all these anecdotes (especially for someone like me who started with an Atari back in the 80s but in Europe) is part of the pleasure of hunting and collecting... Out of curiosity, do you remember who was that Atari dealer?
  17. Please let me know if you have one.
  18. Hi all. The is a seller on Ebay named erosmarketing that sell constantly sealed copies of Eat'em Beat'em and Custer's Revenge. Do you know their background? Are they legit? I have been observing this for about 2 years and they have soled quite a few copies... are these originals or repros? When I asked them they said "originals". And we all know that nobody lies on Ebay, right? Thanks!
  19. Thank you, I will look it up!
  20. Thanks Allan, Did you mean to add a link? Do you know anything else about them? Like what years they have been produced? Is there one "version" for the 4 port and one for the 2 port of the 5200 (I am not sure if both 5200 models have exactly the same dimensions or not). Smithing else with mentioning about them? Sleep if you were to attach a dollar price what would you say it's fair price?
  21. Hi all! What do you know about this Atari 5200 case? Was it an official Atari product? Any history behind it? Is it rare? Thanks!
  22. Tjlazer I got a pair from Umberto, it arrived today, but thank you very much for offering!
  23. Yeah, apparently some buyers (*cough cough*) are as experts as the sellers @Umberto, I will PM you. I am in the west coast too. But @ParanoidLittleMan, thank you so much for offering!
  24. Well... i already contacted Kevin, the seller and he told me that this ROM set *most probably* is not for any Mega series... Is it? He actually suggested I post here and ask :-)
