  1. Do some Atari branded carts or cases not fit in heavy sizers? I seem to recall seeing something about that a while back. My main issue with with my Testcart that I got many years ago not fitting in my heavy sixer, which came in a harvested Atari shell. I’ve taken the cart apart and messed with it, but I suspect that the board and slot are incompatible. I’ve been using this Testcart for literally decades and this is the first time it just doesn’t seem to fit in a system without being removed from the case.
  2. Listing things on eBay belongs in the Auction Central forum please.
  3. Hmm, they don’t have the 5 pin keyboard cable, which is what this unit is missing. Thanks though! That store has a ton of other useful stuff.
  4. AV sounds perfects and the picture is so nice. I have it working with MULE, which I believe is 48K. Maybe all that’s wrong with this 1200XL is that missing cable. I also need to make sure all the keys work. Can anyone suggest a 5 pin cable I could order?
  5. Thanks. Yeah, I guess I need to fashion or buy a 5 pin cable. I’d rather buy one, if anyone has any suggestions. I’m also guessing or hoping that same cable connects the top row of keys. I have it starting up some carts, although it’s a little weird with the AtariMax. Most of my ROMs don’t work on it. I think I need to program a SALT cart and test it to make sure there aren’t any RAM issues. Sound is also really noisy through RF, but then the shielding is off. I should also try AV.
  6. Have this loverly 1200XL I want to get working. It starts up to the Atari screen, which is not something I’m familiar with. Usually these go straight to Basic, right? Well, I opened it up and I’m wondering if there is a 5 pin cable missing from the keyboard to the motherboard. Is that normally used? Note that although the computer starts up, the LED doesn’t light up. Unfortunately I don’t have a SALT cart handy, although I have some AtariMax carts I could load with some ROMs if needed.
  7. Interesting, but belongs in the auction forum.
  8. All SNES are reproduction?
  9. Has anyone built one of these boards? Looks like fun, but I'd prefer not to bother if the lights don't really do much. I've heard they flicker too fast to be useful. I haven't seen any reviews of the unit or mention of how practical it is over a regular diagnostic cart. https://github.com/tebl/c64-blinkendiag

    agacart SD card

    I didn't realize that it came with a memory card when I picked it up. And no, it did not. The seller must have kept it.
  11. Please add me to the list for a copy of this game.
  12. I'm trying to set up an SD card for the Agacart I just got second hand. Sadly it didn't include the original MicroSD, which apparently was loaded with some homebrew and stuff. Does anyone have a zip file of that or their current already setup SD card to send me, so I can avoid the renaming and re-file typing part of setting up the card? Thanks, ian
  13. I recently acquired a MultiFlashROM for MSX. I have it setup so I can flash one ROM at a time by using the command line. I'd prefer to use the MULTIROM.ODF approach where it displays a menu. Alas, I am too lazy to set up a menu. I'm hoping someone has a pre-made volume I can use to save me the hours it will take to set this up. Has anyone set up one of these with a few hundred ROMs? If not, I'll just flash each game manually as I want to play it, which will surely be only occasional anyway.
