  1. Did you manage to make any progress on your mod?
  2. Some of the keys such as the space bar and I think the return key if I'm not mistaken? Will also be attached with piece of metal that you just need to slide out from under the hooks, but because it's old plastic, I'd recommend being especially careful not to just yank these particular keys out.
  3. Oh my goodness, I might have to get a printed copy made of that, it's so professional looking. Nerdgasm 🤤
  4. Thanks for this, I'll have another look when I get home from work tonight. The capacitors in post #6 have been replaced with non polar capacitors, as I made a mistake there. The background colour on the STE diagnostic software is now blue instead of orange, but other than that no changes to the sound.
  5. Yeah I think having the manual will definitely come in handy. I find it interesting how in a lot of older games, the story is written in the manual rather than being explained in the actual game itself, so I feel like I'm missing something if I don't have it lol.
  6. Hello again all. I've replaced the capacitors with non polar Nichicon's of the same value, still no sound. I've tried tracing from the YM sound chip and the LMC1992 chip, and I'm not able to figure out what is wrong. is there anyone on the Atariage forums in the UK that does repairs for ST's? I have to hold my hands up at this point and say I haven't got a clue lol.
  7. Oooh I want it so much 😍 But I'm officially skint until I get my salary this month LOL.
  8. All my other 7800 games are complete in box. I'm waiting for a listing on Ebay for Midnight Mutants with at least the manual included, then I could probably make do with one of the reprint boxes sold on Ebay 😆
  9. I'd go with, Asteroids, Joust, Rikki & Vikki, Midnight Mutants (I've actually been after a PAL copy for a while).
  10. I love the logo, I like the idea of a tower Mega ST so is a shame it didn't work out. Did you make it for space reasons? And also, what happened to the ST after that? 🙂
  11. Dude all of those are amazing, but that woody is just incredible. 😍
  12. Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone has done any fancy mods to their ST's to change the way they look. My Atari ST had cracks all over the plastic which I fixed with Epoxy, but this still left it looking damaged. So I decided to get some vinyl wrap and turn it into a little DIY project. I've attached a WIP photo below, still a long way to go. Anyway, I'd love to see what others have done with their ST's and to hear about how their project went on.
  13. Hello again, If anyone has a 1040ste, could you tell me how many non polar caps they have on their board? I've only found two, but I'm afraid I may have misplaced one, as there are currently 3 caps that I have replaced that are valued at 35v 4.7uf. If someone could let me know I'd be really really grateful.
  14. I actually won a whole load of ST magazines recently on eBay 🤓 I'll have a look through in the next few days to see if there's any interesting articles on Tramiel.
  15. I kept the capacitors that I replaced in a bag, and looking at them now, two of them say NP. Their value is 4.7uf 35v. I think I've replaced these with polarised caps of the same value. This is likely to have caused the issue, as non polar caps are used in audio equipment if I'm not mistaken? I've ordered some replacement caps from Mouser as I can't find any on Farnell, I hope they come tomorrow. Really want to finish off my ST project by the weekend so I can play some classic games LOL.
