  1. Make that 1 & 2... For some reason I can't seem to edit my post to fix that typo...
  2. I'll have to give it a try too. Original part 3 ran (but with corrupted graphics) on Altirra, and wouldn't load at all on my 600XL w/64K upgrade and FujiNet. In the meantime 1 & 3 run great on my 600XL!
  3. Just checked Amazon and they show 2 available right now. Was sorely tempted to order one again, but there's really only 2 games on it that I want. I just can't get to spending $250 just for those 2 games...
  4. Yes, I still load my SuperCharger games off the original tapes. They all still work just fine which is more than I can say for any of my 5.25" and 3.5" media (and even most of my CDs!). I inherited an old full size Phillips cassette player that I use. Soft rewind and all so hopefully it'll help keep the tapes from breaking.
  5. I SO miss Populous. Would LOVE to see a game like that again! OTOH, I recently bought a C128 so I could run Elite because I really want to play that. Unfortunately though I haven't been able to get it to work on my hardware (was trying to use a BackBit)... Having something similar on the Atari would be really awesome.
  6. OK, I was going through the 7800 games in the store and I'm not seeing Dragon's Cache in the list. I can get to it from the new games link, but I don't see it listed under 7800. Am I losing my mind? A bug in the store?
  7. Yeah, Dragon's Cache is a great playing game. I'm still kicking myself for forgetting to add it to my cart on my pre-order - order. I'm definitely getting it on my next order!
  8. I had big plans to play it a bunch yesterday, then I got the e-mail that our entire server farm at work crashed... Big power outage overnight, automatic generator failed, battery backup system depleted, and nothing came back up automatically on power restoration. Fortunately got that all fixed, but I lost a whole day of (my far too infrequent) gaming!
  9. Finally had a chance to check earlier this week and I'm firmware current. I'll give the pulldown mode a try along with a local copy. Thanks!
  10. I had to open this thread just because I had no idea what a tulip connector might be...
  11. FujiNet 1.5 and aha... I didn't realize there was a webpage on board the device. It's set to B Button Press. I had printed out the guide (which must be out of date?), but it lists Button B as just being for print debug info, safe reset, and reset config! If I try Button B, I actually do get the orange light now. Solid for a bit, then starts cycling on/off slowly. Eventually it quits doing that and I end up frozen on the blue screen with a cursor, but at least it looks like it's trying to do something at the beginning now... I see there is an HSIO index thing in that web config too. Do I need to try experimenting with that as well? It's showing "6: 67Kb" currently.
  12. 13 minutes to beat game 1, 26 minutes to beat game 2 so far. Game 1 I got distracted by trying to do things the wrong way for awhile. Then I really got lost on game 2 for a few minutes! Love it. Glad there's a very random option. I'm nowhere near needing it, but long term I think that's really going to provide a lot of extra fun!
  13. On an Atari 600XL I get through step 2 OK, but then the machine just hangs. Pressing start as indicated in step 3 appears to have no effect. No indication of any loading or anything going on. White light only. Thoughts?
  14. 100% As I've mentioned elsewhere, I bought an Atari 8-bit computer specifically to run Adventure II. I was not disappointed. It's an amazing "upgrade" to a classic!
  15. Finally got to dig into mine and play them for the first time. Well worth the wait. Not only are the games great, but the boxes and manuals are just amazing. Everything is just perfect. Including the packaging for shipment. The attention to detail is evident all the way through every step of the process from development through graphics/sound, to artwork/manuals, and finally down to the way it was packed in the box that arrived at my doorstep. Even the labels on the shipping package were perfectly placed. Congrats to everyone involved and especially to Al who definitely had his hands full with such a large drop of games all at one time!
