  1. Frustrating as it is but nothing to be done about it, I won't be able to go this year. Normally I would be moving to a new appartment around this period but that has been postponed to October just this week so can't make the arrangements anymore or get days off at work. Really was looking forward to my first holiday away since the whole pandemic started but well, 2022 will hopefully be a whole lot more relaxed. And for those doubting to go, it was my First Fujiama in 2019 , I met so many kind people, finally played a game of MidiMaze using MIDI cables, learned Assembler (well given that I have no knowledge at all but just a programming background) or at least to say people more knowledgeable explained how to create a game in Assembler, hacked around with an ESP with Manterola, played on a 7800, got a chance to speak German again (which I hardly ever speak here in Belgium), it's a week of disconnecting and 100% Atari focus, aside from all the fine food/company and even an museum trip. If you ever feel that you would like to do something productive on Atari, there is a knowledge base of people gathered in that same room. I understand @manterola 's emotion , every time I get poked again that Fujiama is becoming closer, there is a sigh knowing what I'll be missing.
  2. A wonderfull game and a wonderfull delivery today. Loved the Travel Box Security Sticker
  3. @bocianu I already declared my interest on atari-org.pl so I guess it has no use re-declaring it here then.
  4. So the list starts on 25th of June at 07:00 AM CET (Polish/Belgium time) , correct ?
  5. Also interested in the Collectors Edition but I'm confused now when there will be a list ?
  6. 2 years older than me, sad to hear about this loss, may he find peace after such a long struggle. My condolensences to his family and all related.
  7. Goodmorning Jon To pick up on this conversation, since I'm stuck with a burnout at home, I finally got around to updating firmware on both my AVG cart and U1MB. I have an SophiaV1 in my 1(0)30XE and have both an PokeyMaxV2 SU (Stereo with the pin control for U1MB) and a PokeyMaxV2 Quad only available for install. If I install the PokeyMax V2 Quad , can I switch between Stereo/Quad mode using a (which ? ) plugin with the new firmware ? RTFM Erik ! PokeyMAX Plugin (P2) The PokeyMAX plugin is designed for PokeyMAX 2 and PokeyMAX 3 boards with anything EXCEPT the U1MB Stereo Control core (for which you should use the standard Stereo POKEY plugin) and the ‘Auto’ Stereo core. All other PokeyMAX cores (Stereo/Covox, Quad/Covox, SID, PSG, etc) will benefit from the PokeyMAX plugin, which allows full software control of the several of the most commonly changed audio settings. Features such as Stereo, Quad, Covox, linear mixing, mono detect, SID emulation, PSG, etc, may be toggled via settings in the ‘Device control’ menu. Since PokeyMAX has a ‘features’ register, only those settings relevant to the installed core are activated (the rest being dimmed). Moreover, U1MB will maintain separate PokeyMAX settings in each configuration profile, allowing convenient switching between up to four different PokeyMAX configurations. So for most bang for buck I'm better off installing the PokeyMaxV2 Quad only version into my U1MB machine then I guess ? Do the Sophia plugins support or add anything beneficial to my older SophiaV1 ? And well, understatement of the year probably but what a banging firmware update again !
  8. On my U1MB with AVG Cart , Altirra OS, Stock Mem (128Kb thus) config only the SiC CAR version would work, all others would result in the image of the dancing girl being static and frozen. Now this AtariMax KILL FIX version works, I get the animated girls and the loading continues to the intro screen and further.
  9. From what I gathered here https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=14153473 FoReM was the ancestor of a lot of BBS software ? Could have interpreted that incorrectly.
  10. Block loading sound as I type, thanks a lot , I had tried Start-Option , ENTER but didn't know about the 2nd Fujinet button !
  11. Thinking maybe it is the copy protection on the Polish Games , I tried Druid now from here http://atarionline.pl/arch/D/Druid/Druid (1987)(Firebird)(GB).cas I don't have an SD card in my Fujinet ( is it necessary ? ) on my 800XE (with an 320XE RAM expansion) it goes to BASIC on my U1MB 130XE it goes to Selftest Clearly there is something wrong in my approach, I'm just loading the CAS file and then press OPTION to boot it
  12. Another milestone ! I tried to load some Polish games in CAS format but that doesn't seem to work , or have I misunderstood the new firmware update and it currently only is able to load cassettes and access files from them ?
