  1. I think it looks nice but I think a miniature version doesn't make any sense.
  2. The case I have in mind is a bit of a combination between this one and the XL case.. To be honest I don't like the case to be a a smaller version of a diskdrive or tape recorder. But I do like the extra features like switch and leds..
  3. is it also possible to make the text and logo in another colour?
  4. For this Sdrive I need the case. You can see the leds and switch here
  5. Yes this looks good! what I have so far is the enclosed file but it doesn't have the gaps filled. The file I have has the stylus holder on the other side, but I think this is much better. The lead hole on that side yes but not at the bottom but a bit higher. What is missing in my stl file are holes for the 2 leds and the switch. I think the only place to put them is on the front. Leds left of the Atari logo and switch right of the Atari logo. So I think if you continue with your file is to add the text on top and the logo on the front and move the hole for the lead a bit higher and center it between the 2 connections. And at last to add a hole for the switch with the letters S and E and 2 small holes for the leds. I do have an example of the switch. It was done on another case. SDRive Max Case Tweaks-3.stl
  6. No that was not directed to you.
  7. ok, i will do that. It is true that I asked for it a while back. Sompe people promised to help me but didn't hear from them anymore..
  8. well I don't have much to show.. There are some variations posted here but they don't have the closes holes... I can see if i can find the one that comes most close...
  9. I have these leds on leads that can be mounted to the case. So the leds inside are of no use for me...
  10. ok, well I never used such software before. Some advised me to use Thinkercad. I don't even have a 3D printer myself. I only have some ideas on how to improve the design of the XL case so I can use it for my Sdrive Max... I saw some variations of the plain XL several cases ( and also some total different designs) and they all have something that would make the original design much better. So what I have in mind is adding them all to one design. But like I said I don't have any experience with software and 3D printing..
  11. well that won't be much. If printing the whole case costs about $ 5 material it doesn't make sense at all. I think it will look much better and you don't see the leds blinking inside.
  12. Hello, I'm still trying to change the design of the XL case a bit. Is someone able to help me with it? The most important changes that I want is to flip the case so that the cable comes out of the side where the connections are, to close the centilation holes but keeping the structure and to add a stylus holder. I hope someone is able to give me some advise!
  13. Hello, I have a question about the Sdrive Max. With control-L you can switch to long file names. However when you reboot the Sdrive it is turned off again. Is it possible to save it to the cfg file so that it is turned on all the time?
  14. Thanks to the help of a nice user here my Atari is complete again!
  15. I ordered this one: https://www.8bitclassics.com/product/atari-xl-xe-power-supply/ It works just fine. My original power supply still works but this one is a lot easier to use. They also sell thuis one: https://www.8bitclassics.com/product/atari-xl-xe-usb-power-cable/ You can buy a seperate adaptor as well.
  16. well still didn't hear anything. it's a bit strange that you want to order something but that the seller doesn't reply to the request
  17. he offers international shipping so I don't think this must be a problem as well..
  18. well I told him in an email that I'm interested in the name plate and a video cable that costs $ 15. So $ 25 together. I don't live in the USA so calling is a bit of an obstacle for me...
  19. well I want to do it by his rules. I first asked him to put the small part in an envellope but he didn't respond. If I tell him later that I want to order for $ 20 I think it is very strange to not get an answer. Isn't there a way yo place an order on the site? Do you have to email him for that?
  20. very strange way of doing bussiness if you ask me...
  21. well I don't give up on anyone if I want something, but I have the feeling Brad is ignoring me because I may have asked something he won't do. If I ask a question he can answer and not ignore me if he doesn't agree. But like I said I will try to get what I want. I ordered a remade badge (I showed pictures in this post before) and that isn not what I want...
  22. Well if he had a decent website he should have photos there of the products he sells.
  23. Yes I wrote Atari in the subject. Yes he has a minimum of $ 20. In that way it helped that the praise was raised from $ 5 to $ 10.. lol I understand that you are a bit sarcastic towards him. I can understand why. But the whole website is a bit messy. It was made ages ago but these days you can make much better websites. I asked for a picture of the name plate. If it is actually the same as the original I will go for it...
  24. Can someone tell me how I can order from this website? http://www.best-electronics-ca.com When i send an email I don't get a reply.. I think the website is not that easy to use. Are there pictures available for all products? I can only find some text about the name plate. And I see it costs $ 10 instead of $ 5 now...
  25. comparing to the RF output comnposite is much better. I have the 800XL. Maybe there is a difference between NTSC or Pal? My colors are not darker. S-Video is a bit sharper I guess but not that much. I have the horizontal smearing with some bad quality s-video cables like I explained above. But again, chroma is not connected as well.
