  1. It does work, just takes ages to get beyond the 'working' part. Under System menu in Altirra, select Warp Speed and it then takes around 15" to get into the game.
  2. Fantastic work! Thanks for sharing the CAS and scans. So strange to have a game that uses the START, SELECT and OPTION keys to play the game! 😄 There are Spectrum inlay instructions here, which may give an idea on the game, although not sure if there is a way to go slower, faster or eject on this Atari version? https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/zxdb/sinclair/entries/0002241/HarrierAttack.jpg
  3. Amazing find @wesmond ! 😃 I'd love to see this archived as part of the Atari Preservation project (www.a8preservation.com). If you are happy to reach out to @djmat56 or myself, either of us can use our equipment to create a decent WAV/FLAC file and also scan the cover. This can then be shared with @www.atarimania.comand the Atari community. I use a Yamaha KX-W321 dual tape deck and then pass the audio via phono leads into my laptop and regularly clean the tape heads to ensure I obtain the best quality possible. It sounds like the problem is your Walkman (which might be on its last legs - terrible pun 😄), as you've managed to load this using Atari equipment.
  4. Hi @GreyHobbit, are you able to upload these to me via DropBox? You can then PM me the link and I'll make sure these get preserved in the archive?
  5. I'd imagine Jay11 is probably the seller (jhoover11), but not sure what he's trying find out from this post? Has the original buyer not paid up? Does he feel that he could have obtained more $ from the sale?🤨
  6. Hi, I also have a copy of Flying Tigers, but was only corrupt at the start of the tape. I've stitched my copy and CharlieChaplin's copy together, plus corrected a few errors that I noticed comparing against the .com version. Please see working version attached (CAS and also HEX for reference). Thanks Chennaults Flying Tigers (Discovery Games).zip
  7. Hi grant74, glad to be of help. Hope the XEX worked okay and brought back some gaming memories?
  8. I'd be interested to the see the original listing for Conquering Everest from Computing Today (May 1981) if anyone has a copy. Not sure if the original listing would be for the Atari or another system? Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computing_Today) states that this UK magazine was owned by Argus Press (the same company that released the 1983 Atari release). I can't find a PDF of this particular issue, but have found a cover scan on the 'net.
  9. Yeah, I've found that rewinding and fasting sometimes help. However, I've found some games that I've bought are physically damaged (tape had been chewed), so combining CAS images has helped in obtaining a complete file.
  10. Farb, I've not kept the original WAV file as these take too much of my storage space compared to the CAS file. Also, I've sometimes found that if a tape is warped or damaged in someway then neither side of the tape will work. However, by creating CAS files of both sides and using WinHEX its possible to create a fixed version.
  11. Please find scans also of cover, cassette and instructions as requested by Farb. Enjoy! AtariGrub
  12. Great! Thanks for your help. Unfortunately it wouldn't let me attach a CAS or XEX, so I've zipped both together. To load the CAS, you'll need BASIC and then type CLOAD and then RUN.Conquering Everest (ASP Software) - BASIC load.zip
  13. Hi grant74, I've managed to convert the CAS to an XEX, which works in the emulator I use (Atari800 ver 3.1.0 modified for a8cas). My question is, how do I upload files on this forum!?
  14. Hi Grant74, I bought a copy some years back, but unfortunately I'm not looking to sell it. However, I did make a CAS file from it to use in an Atari Emulator if you want a copy? For reference, the first few lines of the BASIC listing state that it was first published in Computing Today (May 81) and adapted for Atari by G.A. Greenway © ASP Software. Thanks AtariGrub
  15. Part of my games collection, some of which I still own from the 1980's and the rest I have purchased from Ebay, etc.
