  1. yeah, good points. I agree.
  2. I believe I saw a list of known fishers, scammers, or something like that somewhere in the forum. I don’t recall if it was here in the Atari section or the Marketplace. Probably a good place to include this one.
  3. And now there is another listing for the same cart (serials are identical) selling for only $700 ! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-400-800-mint-Condition-PRONTO-Super-Rare-/124898419846 and the $900 listing is still up https://www.ebay.com/itm/Super-Rare-atari-400-800-pronto-program-cart-/124893648540 same seller
  4. Thanks, I also found this one today: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1992-Atari-Games-Twentieth-Anniversary-Matted-Framed-Poster-/124897913494 but $699.99 seems a lot of dough
  5. but $900 you are shooting too high imho https://www.ebay.com/itm/Super-Rare-atari-400-800-pronto-program-cart-/124893648540
  6. There was an auction recently (July 2021) and it sold for $81 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pronto-Ver-1-8-Extremely-Rare-Atari-8-bit-Cartridge-400-800-XL-XE-Holy-Grail-/294254608784
  7. That’s some seriously post undigging @mr.bill, 10 years! Well done btw, if you still have a poster left for sale, I would like to buy one too. Thanks

  9. s/handle/latch/ btw, I failed to pull off and the latch is broken
  10. Thanks Sugarland, yes I plan to retrobright, but the main reason to disassemble is because of the smoke smell on this thing. It’s really bad 🤢 I almost threw the drive away, but it deserves to be cleaned and have an extended life. Pulling the latch was the first thing I tried and failed. I also tried a small pry, but I stopped before breaking the plastic. I wonder if the smoke fumes solidified underneath the latch making things tougher to pull. Any tips to remove cigarette smell are also welcome. I’m thinking an ultrasonic bath may do the job with the guts of the driver. The plastic parts (except the front and the latch) I’m already cleaning with water and soap before the retrobright dance.
  11. Hello, today I got my first XF551 and the poor guy needs some whitening. I already got the top and bottom cover out but I’m having trouble to remove the disk drive latch without breaking it. And if I don’t remove that I’m not able to remove the plastic front either. I’m attaching a picture for your reference. Any tips you can share is highly appreciated. Thanks a6502
  12. And local pick up only… in Vegas.
  13. here is one not in the spreadsheet yet:

  15. After almost 1 year, another one sold today on eBay for $450 ! https://www.ebay.com/itm/ATARI-BOULDER-DASH-First-Star-Software-Games-Cartridges-800-XL-XE-Rare-/124808863767
  16. from the 80s, if I need to pick up 3 DOS games, they are actually ports from Amiga and AppleII, but I played first on DOS and spent *many* delightful hours on my dad’s 286 SX 25MHz (on CGA) and later on my own 386 DX 40MHz with SVGA monitor, Trident video card and Creative Sound Blaster (what a difference): Battle Chess Maniac Mansion Prince of Persia
  17. Here is a nice “Vintage Keyboard” [ebay]353568015343[/ebay] https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-ATARI-800XL-Keyboard-Boxed-Untested-/353568015343?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  18. on Sep 2, 2020 someone sold one on eBay for $254.99. This was the first star software cartridge and not a repro. You can find repro carts for less than $30.
  19. me too @DavidMil I even asked the seller if he would sell only that cartridge, but looks like he sold the whole lot already $$$ https://www.ebay.com/itm/373616337347?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&nma=true&si=gnhEl1mYVYmJo%2FaSfL%2BN33C9lZg%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc
  20. Thanks BIGHMW, hopefully you can get this Asteroids port soon. Have a great weekend and enjoy other 5200 ports in the meantime.
  21. Can you please refrain from using the “simple re-port” term ? If you want someone to actually do this work show some courtesy and appreciation for the work, after all you are not a “tech guy”
  22. sold some Atari 8 bit cartridges, excellent communication, smooth transaction, fast shipping. 💯% recommended.
  23. Jumpstart by Logic One from: https://www.atarimagazines.com/v7n9/productreviews.html
  24. I don’t have the cart in hands, but I believe there is no ROM involved. Somehow it tricks the computer to reset using the cartridge pin connector. I’m sure a search for coldstart here in the forum will reveal more accurate information.
