  1. The manual for this is available (Atarimania), but have the disks been imaged yet? According to the R-Time 8 / SDCS Supplement, the contents are as such: The SpartaDOS Construction Set package includes: 1) a diskette containing the standard SpartaDOS version 1.1 on the front and public domain games with the LOGOMENU program on the back side 2) a diskette containing both SpartaDOS version 2.3 and 3.2 with their supporting command files I'm interested in hosting information and files for this on a website currently under construction. Any help in obtaining copies would be greatly appreciated. Also, it was noted in the "Software Preservation" thread that the ATX for the SpartaDOS Toolkit "may have a dump error". Was this ever confirmed or discounted? I'm currently planning to host the ATX from this archive, but I'd prefer not to if the dump isn't clean. Thanks, MF
  2. For the newbees that come back from the past. In the 1980s we didn't have such things, otherwise I'd had some. ATR files are image files of old Atari self booting single sided disk. What equipment and software is required to make ATR files? Usually a SIO2PC cable and required software in necessary. Can a ATR file be used to re-create a workable floppy disk, assuming that we can find some blank disk? YES All of the physical copy protection is removed from the original disk before the ATR is created or the original disk never had any physical copy protection schemes. An ATX file is an image of the a disk and any copy protection on the original disk is included in the ATX file. See Farb's responses about ATX files. Nov 26, 2015 edit: ************************* Special thanks to Farb for the following ********************** Scott3555, on 25 Nov 2015 - 5:40 PM, said: So can a ATX be run from the image file or does it have to be copied to a floppy disk? I know enough about copy protection schemes and the Atari 1050 drive to know that there were many copy protection schemes that cannot be copied by the standard 1050, therefore we enhansed our drives with the Happy card. Farb's reply: You can run ATX images with appropriate software or hardware. For example, you can use Steve Tucker's APE program with the VAPI DLL available from Atarimania. I don't know what other software packages have support for it. On the hardware side, SIO2Arduino is the only hardware solution I know of that has support for ATX although it is somewhat limited since it doesn't fully emulate drive timing. There is no publicly available software that allows writing an ATX with a Happy 1050 that I'm aware of. The only available option I know of is using a SuperCard Pro, a PC floppy drive and phaeron's a8rawconv tool. And even then, that setup will only let you do single-sided disks as the SuperCard Pro doesn't support double-sided disks yet. There are quite a few software solutions out there -- the aforementioned APE, AspeQT/RespeQT, SIO2OSX and a number of others. Some are available freely while others must be purchased. I would suggest searching on these forums as there are many threads that talk about these tools. They all have different requirements for type of PC, operating system, etc. Some are more limiting than others and/or may require some technical savviness to get working. I don't believe there's really a "silver bullet" solution. ************************ end of Farb's enlightening reply ********************************************** I went to the SuperCard Pro website, CBMSTUFF.COM, and there is an update as of September 3, 2015 that says the software for the SuperCard Pro now does the conversation without the need for phaeron's a8rawconv tool. Is this the "Silver Bullet" solution? stay tuned...
  3. Well I finally had success tonight. I built my SIO2PC RS232 adapter and after a little trial and error I got it to load Sparta dos. I am incredibly excited now because this is going to really open up a lot of doors for me and my little 800xl. I see that I still got a lot to learn and Id like some info from you guys to help me along. First what file types does ape accept? So far I have only tried ATR. files just cuz I noticed that was what the DOS files that came with it were. Can it handle ATX. or XEX.? If not is there a convertor? I would just do the trial and error method like I usually do but I'm using an old Toshiba laptop I had lying around to interface with my 800. Its the only pc I got with a RS232 port plus I didn't have any other use for It so now its gona be a dedicated extension of my Atari. The only way I have to transfer files to it is by burning cd's. So I don't want to work by trial and error or I'm gona make alot of coasters. Where Is the best place to get files known to work well with ape. I have got a handful from http://atarionline.pl I have had about a 50/50 success rate. Boulder Dash and Tetris worked. Ballblazer wont load, and Rescue on Fractalus loaded but then crashed about 30 seconds into the game. I did finish this thing late and haven't had to much time to play with it. I wanted to type this up before I went to bed so hopefully Ill get some pointers I can try when I get home from work tomorrow. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks much Dripfree.

  5. Have the disks that go with the manuals recently posted up on Atarimania ever been dumped?
  6. Were there ever disk images and manual scans made for the early versions of SpartaDOS? Scans of a floppy and manual cover can be seen at Atarimania of one early version: SpartaDOS (1984)
  7. Please inspect post http://atariage.com/forums/topic/162372-his-dark-majesty/page-5#entry2953919 and following ones for background information...
  8. I'm having a problem being sure exactly what I'm downloading at Atarimania. I've noticed when downloading disk images that have just been uploaded (accessed through links on the "Latest Updates" page), that in the "Additional Comments" area it says, "Missing original disk image!". Now, I'm quite sure that many of these images being uploaded are original, because they're often coming directly through the software preservation effort of Farb, and other reliable sources. So, I assume these are old comments that haven't been removed. But my question is: how do I differentiate dumps that have these comments? A recent example showed this on the "Recent Updates" page: NEW A8 DUMP Silicon Joy's Caves of Rigel (finally a "good" version retaining the proper format and loading screen!). Thank you Zarxx! But this on the game information page: Additional Comments Many thanks to Zarxx for dumping this game! Missing original disk image! I assume everything fine with the image, since the Recent Updates page said it's good. But what happens when someone enters the game information page through searching or other link? Also, many don't even show the, "Many thanks to..." part, even though I know they are recently dumped images, and yet they still say, "Missing original disk image!" in the comments. So, now, whenever I see this comment on a game information page that I've found through searching, and no other information to give me a clue, I'm wondering exactly what I'm looking at and downloading.
