  1. Tricks and Tips PDFs: ATARI XL XE TIPS TRICKS CHEATS.pdf Trucos de Juegos Atari.pdf
  2. There should also be in the 8-bit section, a subforum dedicated to hardware developments. Many of them are lost in the main forum, and also have new versions.
  3. Covox questions for knowledgeables: - It seems that this design will produce 4 individual outputs for each of the 4 channels. - Will this work with standard old software (not only for new developments), ie. will the 4 channels be divided correctly with old games? Will the sound be the same if the 4 outputs are joined? - Is there a video or review?

  4. Looks very well. It reminds me the progress of the wolf3d project. Wolfenstein 3D attached. Wolfenstein 3D (NTSC).xex Wolfenstein 3D (PAL).xex
  5. Thank you, there is only one remaining in the list for a full systems guide (very similar to the 130XE): Atari 65XE / 800XE:
  6. Turbo Freezer useful links: There is already a 2011 design with schematics, firmware and manuals. I think you could get in touch with @HiassofT AtariAge: Turbo Freezer 2011 AtariAge: Turbo Freezer 2016 AtariAge: Turbo Freezer 2018, user @SvenCarstensen was working on, but the project, as the TB, is frozen... ABBUC: Turbo Freezer 2005 ABBUC: Turbo Freezer 2011, Info 2 TB 2005 & 2011 documentation, schematics, manuals, and files UAV: The best easy to follow professional guide in one file. It would be nice if you could make some brief for the XE line also, there isn't a guide yet, schematics attached. freezer2011-full-rom-3.10.zip freezer-eagle-files.zip freezer-logic-121118.zip FreezerManualEn-3.10-130330.pdf
  7. @TIX: You could make a tutorial of how to make sprite changes, and what programs do you work with, I think there are a lot of guys interested in to make changes in several games. I've used Omnivore to make some hacks, but it's quite limited, only black & white and entire rows, some characters are inverted and it's very difficult to make a change. So hopefully you can publish a tutorial of your talent...
  8. @MacRorie: The Turbo Freezer would be an excellent new product. There is a lot of interest, and it's a complex PCB to be made at home. Docs and demonstration Video. May 23, 2019:
  9. Outside America, China or any other manufacturing country, you have to get used to what is available in sites with free shipping options, like AliExpress. If there isn't a huge demand in a place, there isn't a huge variety of products. At Mouser:
  10. Learn to read and you are answered.
  11. I don't know how you conclude that. I'm not telling the higher voltage will make a difference in terms of electrical design. I said to change the C50 capacitor, and I propose a safer voltage for it. I have all my devices with capacitors with one step higher, instead of 16V -> 25V, and the non-polar instead of 35V -> 50V. So far so good. Why I did it?, just because I can, and it's a safer design at the same price. You are wrong. I had the same problem because I replaced the same capacitor, but I pushed it very hard damaging it, just because the new capacitors are smaller and the separation is not the same. Then I had to replace it for 2nd time, and the problem of vertical lines was solved. The problem of the vertical lines lies in a defective capacitor C50 that needs to be replaced by a new one. Of course it could be other reason, but it is the first step to be discarded.
  12. You have to change the capacitor C50 (10uf 16V) and the vertical lines will disappear. Replace it with 10uf 25V. The capacitor must be placed with care, do not push it hard or it will be damaged again.
  13. The title of this topic is not "Make the Ultimate Cart work on 400/800", it's for all devices. So ATR reading would be the better compatibility improvement for the Ultimate Cart. Being that Uno Cart supports ATRs, it should be straightforward to upgrade the Ultimate firmware. Unfortunately Uno Cart is too limited with its features, and at the same time the Ultimate is too expensive for a cart.
  14. Mmm... of course the unusual 400-800 user needs a starting point. Is there a technical reason why an atr does not work on those?
