  1. Ok all... please be gentle as I'm way out over my skis here! Lol. I've been an avid late 80's/Early 90's 286-486 PC collector for some time and have been interested in getting into Atari's 8-bit machines for a while but haven't taken the plunge. Well, I stumbled across this lot in a box at Savers today and couldn't leave it there as I never see stuff like this in the wild. Problem is, I have no idea what I'm getting into! From what I can tell both the 800 and 130XE have been modified. The 130XE has an Omnimon board by David Young but it won't boot... I tried both the 'Monitor' out and RF and both screens look the same. The 800 boots but keys "esc through 6" on the top row are unresponsive, could be something simple but I haven't cracked it open to see what's going on. I started to open it and found what looks like additional RAM/ROM and figured it was time to post pictures and get some more information from the experts. Excited to learn but a little overwhelmed with them already being modded. I'd love to sort the 130XE and fire up some games. And sorry about the PCjr looming in the background!
  2. Does anyone know if there is a working version of Rogue for Atari 8 bit computers? (not A-Rogue, but Rogue) The only versions I've found are .cas and .xex and none of them work properly/fully in emulation on Atari800MacX or on my stock 130XE (the .xex files; no real, hardware cassette option): all of the versions of the games play but none allow you to access your pack*, the contents of which are fairly important for the function of this game. Am I missing a control option? Are the commonly circulating copies flawed or "incomplete-ware"? This looks like it could be an amazing game. According to what I could find this game should be compatible with 400/800, XL and XE. Thank you very much for reading and considering my question! Thank you for any help or insight you all might have! Apologies if there is an answer to this question posted previously elsewhere; I searched google, AA and atarimania and some .rom and .xex sites but could find little more than the non functioning versions of Rogue and 1 youtube depicting Rogue working on an Atari 8 bit computer. * To clarify, when the white cursor + symbol is moved over the pack contents nothing happens; there is no menu popping up for accessing/using the pack item contents.
  3. This 130XE's video with its vertical lines has been driving me crazy. So I opened it up and started playing. Not only did the lines on the left side of the screen vanish, but as an unexpected bonus - the video is now crisper and the colors look soooo much better. To be fair, the "before" pic has the brightness and contrast on the display turned up little so the lines were more noticeable in the pic, but the "after" pictures brightness and contrast was NOT re-adjusted. The fix is simply jumping one resistor to one pin on the ROM just below it. My results are amazing and I hope this helps somebody, as most other solutions I've seen require de-soldering which I'm not ready for yet. YMMV of course, but I hope yours are as good or better than mine!!

  5. Hello! I've just purchased an Atari 130xe computer. I'm excited to learn some BASIC, find some games online, etc. I've purchased an adapter online that will allow me to hook it up to my TV (via the Monitor output to RCA connector.) Is there an easy way to connect it to a computer monitor that uses a VGA input? I've searched online but can't find any relatively inexpensive solutions. Thanks very much!!
  6. I recently got my old first computer out of storage. It's a 130xe and it's been dead for 30 years, and I wanted to repair it. It shows a solid black screen when running. I ran a logic analyzer across a variety of pins on the system to see what seemed to be working. The address and data lines across all ram chips, the sally, antic, and gtia all seem to be good. The BASIC chip also has solid connectivity to these lines. The OS Rom chip was socketed by the former owner of the machine (I bought it in 1986 used,) and most of the pins on this socket aren't making contact to the address and data lines. This is likely the cause of the fault in the system. The socket doesn't seem to be gripping the pins very well and the chip comes out a bit too easily. But the other thing I found is that P5 on ANTIC, which goes to P20 on GTIA, and P23 on GTIA are all solid logic low, when the Sam's guide says they should be going back and forth between low and high. Most of the other pin the wave form is provided for seem to have good signals on the analyzer. (I don't have a scope to verify the waveforms though.) Would the OS chip being disconnected cause it to be a solid black screen all on its own, or could there be some other problems with the GTIA and ANTIC? I'm going to be ordering a new socket for that (and maybe a new ROM, just to be safe,) and wanted to order any other chips that could be bad at the same time so I don't need to wait around twice if the first thing doesn't fix it. (I already have sockets for the RAM chips, and new ram chips on the way, since I figured this is a common failure mode with a MT ram based 130xe's.)

    Hello all. I've decided to condense my wanted into one post... any mods observing this are more than welcome to delete my other topics... I'm almost done getting the classic computers I want, but there are a few others I'd like... An Atari ST. I'm not really picky on model, but if it doesn't have RF out, I'd like a monitor too. A Color computer 3. I really thought about getting an earlier model, but after seeing the stuff cloud9tech has put out, I think I'll go for this one. Apple iii. I know this is a lot to ask. However, I am a Tron fan, and seeing that Kevin Flynn used one in the movie, I'd like to get it. Apple //e games Commodore 64 monitor and tape drive Ti-99/4A monitor and speech 130xe monitor and games Thanks for looking Adam
  8. Hi guys, I got myself an Atari 130 XE recently (after a 20 year gap) and I finally found the time to open it to see the conditions inside. I found a couple of hacky looking wires in there and I haven't a clue what do these fix / improve. Can someone here recognize it as a typical mod / fix? Thanks for any comments!
  9. Hi all, I'm having some issues with a 130XE and a svideo cable. When I use the same cable on my 800XL (svideo mod) and on the 800XLF, I have a good image. But on 'all' my XE's (130XE and 800XE) I have give a distorted image. So, my TV is ok, the cable should be ok. But I can't believe all my XE's are faulty. Does anyone have an idea on this one? I've included a picture.
  10. Hi everyone, I need some assistance / advice in obtaining a power supply in some form or another for my recently purchased 130XE, which I'd had shipped from the US to the UK. I'd ordered a PSU with the 130XE, which after it was finally delivered turned out to be completely useless and the wrong one. I'm now considering taking it up with Paypal as a dispute, so I won't go into the detail behind the order. So, on the day of the delivery I sourced a supplier on eBay UK and paid for a compatible PSU to be shipped to me, which after getting back from holiday, was two weeks from when the 130XE arrived. Unfortunately this one was also dead - checking the pin outs, there is no +5V from the PSU. After contacting the supplier, they said they would send one FOC - which after a week still hasn't arrived. I'm having absolutely no luck in trying to get set up with my 130XE - sourcing a power supply is proving to be particularly difficult here in the UK. Does anyone have any advice on two solutions I'm considering:- 1) They know of a (reliable!) supplier / someone that is willing to supply a UK 3-pin 220V 130XE power supply and it can be delivered in about a week? 2) Know how of a DIY solution that would allow me to convert a PSU with compatible output current / voltage for use with a 130XE? I can solder so making up a cable poses no issue for me, I do want to make sure that I get the correct wiring diagram though. Thanks for anyone that can advise. Steve
  11. Can anyone identify this modification on a 65XE with the 130XE motherboard?
  12. Hi all, I've recently ordered a 130XE from the US. I live in France but this kind of machine became recently hard to find. So it was easier and cheaper to buy it in the US. I'll soon receive it, but I have some question regarding the connection: - What kind of power cable do I need to plug it? Does something like that will do the job? http://www.amazon.fr/HQ-P-SUP-32-HQ-Convertisseur-tension-vers/dp/B000MRY5CU Also I'll need to plug to computer, but also the floppy drive, which comes from the same seller. - What's the best way to plug the 130XE on the TV screen? Can I use a Scart cable or a AV composite cable? Or is there a better way? Thanks. Can't wait to receive and play with it!
  13. Hi guys, A few weeks ago I ordered a Sio2Sd from Lotharek. Now I am trying to copy an ATR to a floppy disk, but I cannot get it to work. I tried to find answers in the Sio2Sd wiki (the English part) and I searched AtariAge, but I can not find a solution. Hopefully some of you can help. My setup is a 130XE and a XF551 fitted with a XF Speedy. I can succesfully boot from the Sio2SD as drive 1. I can succesfully boot from the XF551 as drive 1, a copy programm recognizes the Sio2Sd as drive 2 but when I start the copy process I get an error 138 on the Sio2SD. It is the same when I swap the drive numbers and when I switch off the speedy part in the XF. But then the really strange part. I disconnected the XF551 to see if the drive is the problem. I use only the Sio2SD as drive one. I can succesfully boot an ATR with Mycopier (got it from this topic: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/206903-transfer-of-atr-images-via-ape-or-prosystem/#entry2667433 ) but when I start the copy process (with the Mycopier.ATR still as the active ATR) I get a read error. So the ATR which succesfully booted cannot be read anymore. The display of the Sio2Sd first displays the following: 31: $3F(?) $0004 and when I hit start again it displays 31: $53(S) $0004. The Sio2Sd is configurated with Highspeed off, Topdrive off, device 0. I have set all unused drivenumbers to off. Any help is appreciated! Best regards, Fred Meijer
