  1. Hey gang - meant to get things squared away for this month/next month but wound up (for lack of time) going on vacation first. Hotel's 'net service is okay, but for some reason telnet sucks. Timed out after 30 seconds on my first try, literally would enter text and things would set there a while before sending. Anyway, will be home this weekend and will get everything taken care of. Thanks for being patient!
  2. Grab Hextracker. It's recent, supported still and the author is great. He even worked his butt off getting it to work on my Pak 68 equipped STacy. Hextracker_0.849.zip Not sure which version this is (have several lying around) so you might need to grab a different one. Another fun (read visual!) one is CD Player: CDPLAY_E.ZIP Hope this helps!
  3. What? Lower the intensity? Blasphemy! Why, when I power on my Mega STe now, I can hear "Blinded by the light" playing in the background.
  4. We get a lot of "my wife is going to kill me" around here. There are still several things you can do, but they are part of the "major involvement" list. If you can find a Tweety board (stereo enhancement), or one of Exxos's HD 1.44 meg floppy drive upgrades, or...if you're really lucky, find an accelerator board that's in really good shape, ect. Oh, you could install a TOS switcher as well. Note that, these upgrades involve soldering, tinkering, re-arranging the STacy's internals, and more. None of the above are essential, or really necessary, mind you, more like deluxe options. IMHO, maxing out your RAM and getting the US installed will cover a lot of things. PS Oh! Since you're ordering from Best Electronics anyway, grab one of their TrueMouse replacements. A bit expensive but so much better than the original mouse.... http://www.best-electronics-ca.com/accesori.htm
  5. I'd highly recommend that every ST owner upgrade to 4 megs. If you do much with the machine at all, you'll need it, sooner or later. For example, some hard drive adapted games require more than 1 meg. And...since you're going to have a US, you know you'll want to have some HD adapted games. A tray accessible US - that sounds really cool!
  6. Oops - missed the part about it being a STacy 1. I did the same. I had a STacy 2, got a 4 meg board from Best Electronics, all fixed. Oh, don't know if they are still doing it or not but in my case they wanted my old board as a trade in. Reckon, they are getting in short supply and they are re-doing the old boards, upgrading them, 'n stuff.
  7. Huh. Still not showing up here.
  8. Okay, I logged in just now and it seemed to be working okay, but... Where's the new posts button? Can't find it anywhere....
  9. With everything you mentioned in good shape, then just go for one of Lotharek's internal US kits. Grab the US itself plus the internal adapter and you'll be good to go. https://lotharek.pl/productdetail.php?id=47 https://lotharek.pl/productdetail.php?id=49 Also, check out this thread - lots of pictures showing that internal US and cable in a Mega STe. The hard drive setup for the Mega STe and the STacy are identical, AFAIK. https://atariage.com/forums/topic/300934-mega-stett-led-replacements/ You can see several ways that some of us installed these units with lots of helpful information there... As far as the RTC goes, I left everything stock in my STacy and just used Jookie's software which accesses the US RTC and it's always worked fine. Keep us updated - we love STacy stories and pictures!
  10. Not sure what the STacy has, but its an awesome keyboard.
  11. Thanks as always Peter, for your continued hard work supporting the Atari community.
  12. Yep. If I had already committed to upgrading this far, I'd go ahead and spring for one of Lotharek's internal adapters: https://lotharek.pl/productdetail.php?id=49 https://lotharek.pl/productdetail.php?id=47 Or one of Alan H.'s internal adapters, if you can find one. I've got Alan's in my STacy and Lotharek's in my Mega STe. No more 1 gig limit.
  13. Well, I don't have one of those Wizztronics boards, but that sounds promising.
