  1. I recently was given a large collection of Atari items. There were many catalogs in it, including a 6-page DataQue Software "Product Information Release #91.06.03." There is some pretty neat (and hard to believe) information about some two Atari-compatible computers it it. Here is a picture of the first page of the "catalog:" I've also scanned and uploaded the full 6-page catalog to archive.org, here: https://archive.org/details/DataQueSoftwareProductsForAtari8BitComputers1991 I've dictated, using Dragon, the descriptions of these two Atari computers: 130XEC: An Atari 130XE computer on a PC card! This will allow you to have all the fun and utility of an 8-bit system hidden in your PC. Using a special MSDOS interface, you're 8-bit applications can use the PC video and other peripherals, in addition to normal 8-bit devices. It may even be possible to run an 8-bit process as a task using Windows 3.0! The 'XEC' will be designed with a high degree of compatibility with the original XL/XE line. Connections will be provided for two joystick ports, cartridge port, audio/video monitor output, SIO connector, and of course normal 80x88 PC card edge. 1600XLE: The Ultimate 8-bit machine... with a blazing 'no wait state" 8MHz 65C816 processor on a 'baby AT' size motherboard, nothing will come close to the performance of this machine. A custom interface chip will allow PC interface cards to be used on the Atari 8-slot backplane. This motherboard will fit into most PC style cases, and will run Atari 8-bit applications which make no illegal entry points into the OS, or use direct screen access. This monster would be for the power users only, not the casual game player! Using normal PC peripherals would keep costs down, and allow maximum expandability. Has anyone ever heard of this company before? A search of the Internet associates someone named Chuck Steinman with some DataQue products. What's the story of these, very-probably, unreleased hardware items? Were prototypes of these computers ever made, or was this just an idea that never even reached prototype stage? What about the other products in this catalog; were they released? Adam

  3. Let's get crazy. I'm looking for either an Atari 8-Bit (800XL or XE models prefered, including XEGS), or a Commodore 64. The problem is that I'm a college student, so I'm dead broke and don't have a lot of money to spend even with my NEW job, and yes I'm saving up for more important things. I got interested in the Atari 8-Bits because of the Antic Podcast, Inverse Atascii podcast, and Player/Missle podcast. I asked around and a lot of people thought that the XL and XE series would be the best way for me to hop into the world of Atari 8-Bits. Of course, there is everyone else who have fond memories of their C64. Since there is a lot of support out there for the Commodore, I figured this would be another way to get into the vast world of Commodore. There are just a few things I ask for though: The machines must be in NTSC, Power brick, and video cables are included, And if possible, if there is a way of testing one to see if it works before sending it. I ask for one to be sold for a maximum of $50, but in reality, I would pay a maximum of $75. I would just need a few minutes to cry into my pillow. Is there anyone willing to help a poor college kid out?
  4. Hi guys. For anyone using SIO2Linux, I wrote a menu system using python and ncurses that should make selecting files for SIO2LINUX a lot easier. Here is a link to the menuing system: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5fxz9VjCX_CdWM5aWV5UUxobVk/view?usp=sharing You can find SIO2Linux here: http://www.crowcastle.net/preston/atari/ Here is the usage: usage: atrmenu.py [-h] [-d DIRECTORY] [-s SERIAL] [-i SIO2LINUX] Atari Menu optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -d DIRECTORY, --directory DIRECTORY Directory where your .atr files reside (default is current working directory -s SERIAL, --serial SERIAL Directory where your .atr files reside (default is /dev/ttyS0 -i SIO2LINUX, --sio2linux SIO2LINUX directory where sio2linux resides (default is current working directory.)

  5. Hello Atari 8-Bit Community! We were inspired by the many kind responses about our Atari BASIC game development document, our newly posted 1980's Anschuetz/Weisgerber/Anschuetz Atari BASIC games, and our Antic Atari Podcast. For those that missed it, here are the links: Forum post with Atari BASIC game development document and 1980's Atari BASIC games: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/268424-1980s-anschuetzweisgerberanschuetz-basic-games-release/ Antic Atari Podcast: http://ataripodcast.libsyn.com/antic-interview-297-robert-anschuetz-eric-anschuetz-john-weisgberber-antic-magazine-games In this post, we are uploading version 2.0 of the Atari BASIC game development document. This version enhances the original document in many paragraphs, and also adds some new and very interesting sections to the document. This version includes our original 1980's type-written (we didn't have a printer) instructions and programming notes that were submitted along with our BASIC games to Antic, COMPUTE!, and A.N.A.L.O.G. Perhaps even more interesting, we have also scanned the correspondence letters from these magazines for programs that were accepted and rejected for publication. The table of contents indicates these new sections (Development Notes pages 46-71, and Magazine Correspondence 75-91). These are scans from documents that hadn't seen the light of day since the 1980's! Thanks go out to John Weisgerber for saving all of this information for the past 30 years! We are still trying to dig up the old design notes and the graph paper that we used for character bitmaps! They are probably in the attic, closet, or basement somewhere. We hope you enjoy these new additions. Robert Anschuetz Eric Anschuetz John Weisgerber Anschuetz-Wesigerber-Anschuetz v2.0.pdf
