    AVGCART

    Time to add to the confusion. Sorry. My 1981 800 has a 6502B and is perfectly happy with AVGCart and AXLON compatible 512K SRAM board. No modifications or other additions. -SteveS

    oops my *dyslexia* kicked in. reversed "enabled" and "disabled".

    AVGCART

    My 800 with retrocanada's designed 512K axlon board, assembled by Jeffrey Worley, SI2 reports for AVGCart (DD21 FloB edition) with old stock Sandisk 32GB SD card (class 4) a rate of 62 KB/sec (best rate, *sequential read*, I think) with DMA disabled. With DMA enabled it reports 98 KB/sec. There are no modifications aside from the Axlon. I don't own an Incognito equipped 800. The very same AVGCart, now in my 800XL, yields similar numbers, also 62 KB/sec with DMA but now in the *random sector* test. 60 KB/sec for *read sequence*. The number were reversed on the 800. 97 KB/sec best rate with screen .DMA disabled. In the same 800XL I have an internal MyIDE with an IDE to CF adapter. Numbers are also similar here as well, 62/60 KB/sec (*read sequence*/*random sectors*) and 96 KB/sec (across all tests). -SteveS P.S. These are all the "HDD" options I own.

    AVGCART

    I have the same issue will a real 800. ATX will not boot, quick *raspberries* or very slow sounds, I/O retries I assume.. ATRs do load but with some retries along the way. I did a quick comparison with an Atari BASIC (rev A) cartridge and SIO2PC (fujinet-pc software). Similar results. ATX has never loaded (on the 800) @Mclaneinc Try Omniview 256 XE OS. I was able load both "Abuse* ATXes (Don't Ask Software version being the second one) on my 800XL with this OS. Either ATX load most of the time but with I/O retries along the way. I do not recall them ever loading cleaning the way the cracked ATRs do. I can't try it myself (because I don't have a flash ROM for my OSes) but I'm curious about Oldrunner OS Good luck!

    I was able to load the ATX version of "Abuse" to load using Translator B. Use this procedure: - place game and Translator in the same folder on AVGCart's SD card - Atari BASIC can be put in any folder but you must set a shortcut for it. Shortcuts are permanently retained, that is until you clear them or change them. Navigate to Atari BASIC. Press CONTROL + # (where # is numeral 1 through 9) - Navigate to the Translator ATR. Press TAB. You will see the numeral '1' appear meaning the first disk has been added in your disk set. - Navigate to your game (which must be in the same folder). Press TAB to add this disk to your set. The numberal '2' will appear. - Press the numeral which you earlier assigned as your shortcut key for Atari BASIC. The first disk in your set, the Translator, will load. - Translator will instruct you to press SELECT when you are ready to boot your disk. At this point I believe the Atari would normally load the game but we instead are brought back to the AVGCart menu. If you had added the game lastly to your set then that ATX/ATR will be selected again. Just press RETURN and the game will now load. If the game is not selected then navigate to it again and then press RETURN. That's it. Regards, SteveS

    AVGCART

    I got the above ATR to work on my NTSC 800XL. My OS options are limited to four. Omniview 256 XE is the closest thing I have to OS-B on this machine and it was close enough. Abuse program runs with Atari BASICs Rev A or C and also Altirra BASIC on AVGCart. Also with built-in Atari BASIC (is this Rev B or Rev C?). Omniview has reversed OPTION key function. The ATR is on AVGCart's SD card. Access was done via the SIO cable to AVGCart. I didn't try a Translator disk. I didn't try the ATX either. -SteveS

    AVGCART

    I tried the ROMs from SDX distribution that were similar sized 262k (ish). SDXImageUser accepted those ROMs but they don't work if use the aforementioned header. I haven't any tools to add a .CAR header to a raw SIDE 2 ROM image. I also don't know if such an image needs modification to work in AVGCart. -SteveS

    AVGCART

    @tmp and @flashjazzcat It has been mentioned that SIDE 2 emulation requires a .CAR with a special cartridge type. Does the ROM image, s2sdx3.car, conform to a cartridge type or ROM image with a banking scheme that SDXImageUser can recognize. If so, which type of cartridge is it? I wish to add/change files on the image and I would also like to edit CONFIG.SYS. Regards, -SteveS I wish to add/change files contained on the cartridge and I would also like to edit CONFIG.SYS.
  10. my purchased sdrive works after some sketchy repairs. After 10 years my own "ghetto sdrive", no LEDs, no buttons or switches, stopped working. I don't recall ever attempting to connect the read/write pin or a sense pin. What I made was a kludge. Minimum of parts and skipped some key engineering. Freeduino board as a breakout board for the Atmega8. Used a crystal because I couldn't source the resonator. Skipped the load capacitors. Used zener diodes in reverse breakdown instead of voltage divider circuit. Skipped the current limiting resistors. SD breakout board may or may not have helped me there. My voltage switchers were defective so I used 2 signal diodes in series. A 3.7volts I was powering the SD card above specification. Somehow it worked and continued for 10 years. i've since switched SIo2pc, fujinet, Sdrive-MAX, and AVGCart. Some day I will rebuild the ghetto SDrive just because I liked its simplicity with no moving parts
  11. I did some quick testing (after doing some not quick repairs to my classic SDrive). Green LED isn't a power indicator per se. It is normally turned off until there is Read activity. The normal start sequence is the Green LED blinks momentarily then turns off. The four yellow LEDs light. Activity on the Green LED and it goes out again. Finally yellow LED L1 is the only one lit and the SDrive menu is displayed on the screen. IF the green LED lights but nothing else does I believe this means the Atmega is correctly programmed but there is something wrong with the SD card. - It's not installed. - It's not formatted FAT16. IF green LED blinks and only yellow LED L1 lights then - SDRIVE.ATR is not in the root of the SD card If SDRIVE.ATR is corrupt then - all four yellow LEDs stay lit and "BOOT ERROR" I hope this helps.

    Auto Start (CONTROL + SHIFT + A) does not seem to be working for me with DD21, FloB edition. Thinking that I might be typing the wrong sequence I temporarily rolled back to 0020. The feature works fine. Unfortunately, my test created more problems for myself. After reinstalling DD21 I discovered that I had forgotten to clear Auto Start. AVGCart was now automatically booting to Action. Since CONTROL + A also does not work in DD21 I had to repeat my steps. Reinstall 0020, clear Auto Start setting, reinstall the DD21 Regards, -SteveS
  13. Your conversions have always been fantastic and still you continue to get better at making them. The shadows in the foreground from a mostly unseen tree not only look just right they give real depth to the image. I'm wishing yet again to have a PAL Atari rig. -SteveS
  14. Using new old stock Sandisk 32GB class 4 (yep. I said "old stock") [EDIT] P.S. Everything OP listed runs here.
  15. I find Jatari fun to play. I had issues - More than once I mispelled my answer. - once there was a list of items separated by commas. I neglected to insert the commas but otherwise my answer was correct. Suggestion: treat commas (and perhaps periods) like whitespace. - failing to type the article "the" in a title resulted in an incorrect answer. I don't recall if exact titles were required in the TV game Jeopardy or not. Perhaps the host would prompt, "I need more". I see a way to do this in Jatari. These issues are probably difficult to remedy via programming. Perhaps an option to manually override and flag the answer as CORRECT. Regards, -SteveS
  16. This may seem trivial but I was stumped as to how to advance after completing the first level. Despite the title of the screen being "Select World:" I saw only "Escape from the Lab" as the only choice. I reached for OPTION, SELECT, and START but those aren't helpful at this point. I actually needed the suggestion (from mazzspeed [EDIT] actually, it was SadMan) to move RIGHT. Perhaps something like --> to point to the next choice. I've been playing by keyboard. Perhaps it would have been obvious had I been using a joystick. FloB is great fun and I can play it without a joystick! (I have arthritis in my thumbs and I'm still looking for an alternative to an Atari style joystick). -SteveS [EDIT] LOL Oh! The arrow could not have been any bigger. I must have thought it was part of the artwork. Just ignore me!
  17. NTSC 800XL with Rambo XL 256 Mouse Copyright Notice Demo Fujinet 1.0 0:36 0:56 1:59 SWP ATR8000 0:52 1:36 2:47
  18. Flob 1.0.1 works here. NTSC 800XL with AVGCart.
  19. Sorry, as typical for me, it was a user error. I extracted newer fujinet-pc not realizing the files were extracting into folder ../fujinet-pc-fujinet-pc. I had moved the prior version into ../fujinet-pc. This folder name was easier for me to remember. The newer version never got compiled. It's working now.
  20. Is fujinet-pc at the point of development where it can support Bill Kendrick's ISS.XEX? I ask because I'm not sure about the cable I cobbled together. I think I have PROCEED connected to RTS but ISS.XEX is not retrieving data. -SteveS
  21. For what it's worth I ran the pop_DDfastestmouse_notplayable2 test for better than 4.5 hours without issues. Hardware is an NTSC 800XL with Rambo XL 256 an FTDI based SIO2PC-USB cable with Hias' Reichl's atariserver disk emulator.
