  1. Hi Paul, I Was just about to donate something to your cause as well because you were one of the first people to respond to my first post about the new Atari hardware I was purchasing and I thought what a friendly welcoming community this is just because of you and people like you helping me out with my purchasing decisions. Anyways don't want to ramble on for too long. If you've reached your target now that's fine but if its still open I'd like to contribute something. Cheers Tom
  2. Loving this thread BTW. Here is a picture of me getting my Atari VCS for Christmas and my brother (Sadly no longer with us due to a brain tumor) getting his Tamiya holiday buggy R/C car and banjo set. Ah the memories
  3. Hi, more newbie questions. Does anyone know if it’s safe to buy say a 1010 cassette deck or a 1050 disk drive from the USA and buy a UK power supply for either of them? Is it safe for both the device and the computer to do it this way? Just asking because these devices seem to be easier to get hold of from America and slightly cheaper as well. Most of the time in UK it’s just bundles available. Cheers
  4. Thanks Philsan , I will take a look at the book. Appreciated mate.
  5. Thank you MrFish I guess I'll have to wait to play it until I upgrade my 800XL too
  6. Hi Yes it is Bluetooth as well as far as I remember. I was wondering can you get a USB to Atari adapter of some sort?
  7. I have this 8bitdo controller at home and it comes with a usb cable pity I couldn't connect it somehow - would the Genesis mod work with that?
  8. Hello, Following on from my previous post where I purchased a CX24 joystick which a few of you said was uncomfortable and recommended a few different types. I was just wondering if any of you have had any experience with the Suncom slik stick? Is it comfortable to use and responsive? And sturdy?
  9. Hi, I have seen this one on E-bay - I have ordered it but it hasn't arrived yet https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ATARI-800XL-Faux-Leather-BLACK-Dust-Cover-Stylish/164081651404?hash=item2634074ecc:g:3GcAAOSwSA5eRngQ Edit sorry Just re-read the first post my bad
  10. Thanks for the info I will take a look👍
  11. I take it it's not very comfortable to use after a while then lol.😄 Any you would particularly recommend?
  12. OK here is the machine that I have went ahead and purchased (looks very clean BTW) Along with the other various bits and bobs.
  13. That's what I thought a little bit but didn't want to say although it's a great thread it didn't fully answer all the questions I had. I had already read it before posting my questions at any rate. Cheers sorry to hear about your mum btw .
