  1. This is amazing, thank you so much for your ongoing contributions, much appreciated!
  2. Thank you all for the breakdown above, I figured as much but was secretly hoping there was a hack to make the banks accessible all at once for the games that require more memory. Wishful thinking, thankfully I have a 1200xl for the other stuff, but I prefer my 800 . Happy Thanksgiving all!
  3. Is the Atari 800 Mosaic memory board used strictly for a ram drive and coding perks? It's brings the 800 up to 64kb's of RAM, is there any way to use the full 64 to have xl games recognize it? My gut feeling is no, and none of the docs suggest so, but it's a question that's always been nagging at me. Thanks for any insight!
  4. I'm pretty sure I played it on my 1040 back in the days.... It was a 3D game, in color, I think polygon based, it reminded me of the old Mac game Colony. You start off in a space suit on a lunar surface, you have to make your way to the base while shooting bug like creatures. Once in the base, I don't remember much, but it's 3D and kept reminding me of Colony. I thought it might have been called "Infection" or "Infected", something like that. If this rings any bells, I'd love to find it. Thanks! FOUND IT minutes after posting, of course. It's called INFESTATION, great game..... Cheers!
  5. Fantastic job, looks like it came out of the box that way, very clean, and great locations. Now if only there were a way to divert the front joystick ports, that cable dangling out the front always annoyed me.
  6. Why not just go with an SD Drive Max? https://thebrewingacademy.com/collections/atari-800-xl-xe-xel-xld/products/atari-sdrive-max or this if your prefer it in an 810 case (there is also a 1050 version) https://www.vintagecomputercenter.com/product/atari-810-sdrive-max You can grab all the software here (one of the many places)..... http://www.mushca.com/f/atari/?idx=6 It's a hell of a lot more convenient and very quick. Short of the above, if you want to copy images to floppies, you'll have to do a PC to Atari interface with the SIO2PC interface..... https://www.8bitclassics.com/product/sio2pc-universal-interface-usb-interface-w-sio-jack/ Anyhow, hope this helps.
  7. The only thing I could find is that it's some sort of pattern generator, short of that, no screenshots or videos. Given it's rarity, it might be very worthwhile to send it to someone, and get it transferred to a file.
  8. Thanks, just ordered a generic kit, much appreciated!
  9. For clarification, attached is the highlighted rivet / standoff in question.
  10. Any recommendations on where to find those small plastic rivets with the push through pins on the 800 motherboard? Having cleaned some connections up, I noticed mine are quite worn, one of them is very stubborn to stay in place. It's nothing mission critical but it'd be nice to know if there are replacements out there.
  11. Beautiful layout, can't wait to see it in action. +1 for the Atari skull logo, very cool .
  12. You can't put a price on happiness, oh, and it'll be an additional $37.30 for shipping.
  13. Wow, as if $500 for a tape wasn't bad enough, here's an Amiga 2000 empty BOX that you can store the tape in for only $1000 USD. Sadly, they only have one . https://www.ebay.com/itm/Commodore-amiga-2000-original-box-only-RARE/153952119650?_trkparms=aid%3D333200%26algo%3DCOMP.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225086%26meid%3D9754a587b4bc418eb4a856ccafb3e9a8%26pid%3D100275%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D264743082067%26itm%3D153952119650%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2060778%26algv%3DItemStripV3%26brand%3DCommodore&_trksid=p2060778.c100275.m3474
  14. Perhaps, but the transaction left a sour taste in my mouth and I wanted to straighten it with the seller. It wasn't what I ordered, which ticked me off. I also had no way of testing the RGB input, so I'd feel uncomfortable selling it to another party. It'll be up on eBay in a week or so, I'll be curious to see the description.
  15. Thanks Monzamess and everybody else for the input. Said monitor is on it's merry way back to South Carolina where it'll be relisted on eBay, and I'll bet dollars to donuts it'll be the only one on there with that jack hanging off the back. If it sells for $5000, put a fork in me, I'm done.
