  2. My monstrous connections for atari 2600 (repro boards). I know the easiest ways to do this job, but I have to work with what I have at hand. These children have just been born. Atari F8 and atari 4k PLCC32.
  3. As reported by Polygon, Tastemakers is releasing a new Arcade1Up series of 4 foot tall home arcade machines for just $399 each. Set to come out this fall, the only catch is that these 3/4 scale arcade machines have to be self assembled, although Tastemakers is promising that the process is a simple one. The Centipede headline cabinet also comes with Breakout, Millipede, and Missile Command, and features a trackball, which is good for everything but Breakout, which really needs a spinner. The Asteroids Deluxe headline cabinet also comes with Asteroids, Major Havoc, and Tempest, and features the classic Asteroids-style button configuration, as well as a spinner, which is needed for both Tempest and Major Havoc. The Capcom machine appears to just have Street Fighter 2. All of these cabinets feature a 17" LCD screen. While that rules out a true vector display for the Asteroids Deluxe machine, I have to say that that one is the most appealing to me because of the more authentic controls. Of course, the Centipede machine does have a certain appeal, even if I can't see myself enjoying Breakout with a trackball. Hopefully the Tastemakers custom emulator is up to snuff and the build quality is reasonable considering the amazingly low price.
  4. Still running down my laundry list of more minor tweaks. The past few things I've done are: - WSYNC screen color changes tweaking. I can't believe it, but on several screens I had the WSYNC on the DLI *after* the actual color register change, not *before*. Thus in the 5200 version there are a few screens where you can see a color change mid-scanline. I tested 5200 AdvII on a 27" CRT so it probably didn't concern me , or I didn't notice it back in 2007. So, I fixed a handful of those screens for the XEGS version, and those screens are more rock-solid looking now. See the before and after screen shots - look carefully along the logs and you'll see blue water color on the before pic . - Minotaur Freeze State. I never got to put this into the 5200 version but always wanted to have some way you could take out the Minotaur, even if just for a short while. In the XE version, the Blue Key will freeze the Minotaur in his tracks until you remove the key from that screen. - I also finally located a bit of code that needed some gentle massaging (either that or more Hard Work* ) to stop the Troll from BAMF-ing ** around at times. Fixed! * obscure AA reference ** BAMF is the comic book sound effect in X-men comics when Nightcrawler would teleport. BAMF! Al is going to have a recent version at the PRGE show , running on an XEGS machine. See prior blogs for other recent tweaks to Adventure II XE.
  5. Creating the Retro Gaming Experience To me, sitting infront of a flat screen TV using some emulator and a wireless controller didn't really provide me with the best Retro Gaming experience. In fact, it was far from the truth when it comes to actually capturing what it was like to play these retro games. So a few years ago I decided to create my own Retro Gaming experience by creating a retro gaming nook. This would take a lot of patience and hunting. Though I had plenty of Atari stuff in my collection, I still needed to hunt out the decor I needed for this retro nook. To sit down somewhere and feel like I went back in time. The act of playing on a old CRT TV, being restricted by cords. The earthy tones of the wood paneling. The simplistic decor of the late 70s/early 80s of my youth. To design something that took me back in time would offer the true experience. My first pick-up was this 1977 Sony Trinitron with matching TV Cart: So during the next year-and-a-half I combed eBay, Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, and local thrift stores. I not only needed the right decor, but I needed it cheap (I didn't really have much of a budget). Once I accumulated enough stuff to make my design reality, it was time to begin. I decided to dedicate a small corner of my garage for a retro corner. I started with the wood paneling. Luckily, many of the home improvement stores still carries wood paneling for very cheap. After getting the wood paneling up, it was only a matter of laying the carpet down and putting the pieces in the place. When all was said and done I only spent around $300 to complete this project. A lot of the cost savings came with patience. waiting to find the right stuff for the right price without overspending (For example, the TV and cart I was able to pick up for $30). Here was the end result. The final Retro Nook came out better than I imagined. Sitting in this corner playing my Atari, I almost thought I was back in 1983. Even the copper colored wing-back chair was the same chair we had a 1983 (my family never had the heart to get rid of it). People have to remember...... Back in the early 80s, most home decor were still from the 70s (unless they recently remodeled). Add a little stale tobacco smoke to the nook to complete the Retro Gaming experience😂. For the rest of the year I often enjoyed disappearing in my little gaming area to relive some of my nostalgic memories. At times my kids even joined me. It was great to show my children how "dad" played games when he was a little boy. During the next summer I decided to do a redesign of my retro corner. I wanted to make it a themed corner, as well as incorporate one of the old cabinet TVs that I have. I have always been a fan of playing original hardware on original hardware. So I have multiple CRT TVs that my children and myself use. I do have a few cabinet TVs and I had one in particular I wanted to use for my new "themed" retro corner. Here is a old cabinet TV I have in my bedroom. It's the TV I used most of the time before I designed my retro corner. Anyways, since I wanted to redesign my retro corner I decided to do it themed design. I decided to go with a Q*Bert theme which was one of my favorite Retro Gaming characters. It took a while to gather all the stuff I needed for the redesign. I already had an old 1970 zenith cabinet TV I wanted to use, but to find the right Q*Bert themed decor was a little challenging (more specifically the wall art). Then I found the perfect piece. A Q*Bert latch hook rug became available and I just had to have it. I was also able to acquire a orange wingback chair for $20. Here is the final design...... This Q*Bert themed design I was extremely happy with. I decided to get rid of the table to bring back the good ole days of having to sit on the floor to play. Coincidentally enough, I finished this design right around Halloween. I actually had a old early 80s Q*Bert costume (one of those old vinyl Collegeville costumes). My son decided to humor me and put the costume on so I could do a Halloween photo. I tried to use an aging filter to make the photo look a little less "high def". I'm not professional photographer so I did what I could with my cell phone, lol Here was the end result. All in all, creating a authentic Retro Gaming experience is relatively inexpensive and you only need a very small space. Playing these games takes me back to a simpler time. For some reason I find it more enjoyable playing on my retro setups then I do behind a computer screen or on some other type of emulation. The feel of the carpet, the act of inserting the cartridge, the smell of the tubes, and the sight of the wood paneling all help contribute to the overall Retro Gaming experience. I'll end with one last photo. My most recent setup that I may use if I decide to redesign my Retro Corner in the future. It's my 1976 Zeinth gaming station.

    Lost Party 2020

    After many questions and requests we've decided to introduce new coding compo for the 8 bit Atari: "Illegal is legal". To take part in the compo your entry needs to meet some requirements: - they may only use illegal opcodes, - they should switch OFF the OS in the very beginning, - they should work on every Atari machine located within 320 km from Licheń Stary, - they don't use addresses such as $d200-1f, $d301, $d640-$d65f, $d740-$d75f etc. [polish text: grab the teddy bear xxl]
  7. Greetings! I've got a small lot of Atari drives that I'm selling. Atari 1050s: Two that are complete, one that is just the board. They all power up, but two won't read disks. There is a drive for the board, but the cable to the read head is severed. Atari 810s: Two that are in good physical condition and one that was disassembled (and a couple of cracks in the body/case). Like the 1050's they power up, but haven't read a disk since our move. All drive power up, and the disk does the initial spin. Drives attempt to read the disks, but eventually fail (disk read error). Most have power supplies included (or not, your choice). Price - $20 each or make offer. You can choose all or some. Will work a deal for for multiple drives or the lot. Available to local, or anyone willing to pay the shipping and some packing materials. Shipping from North Carolina, 28078. I'll get pictures up and post them soon. If there's no interest here, I will post on eBay next. Poe
  8. Hey Guys! It has been quite a while for me to be out and about, but I am starting to get my Retro juice flowing again. Recently I acquired the Percom RFD44-S2 that was listed on Ebay. It is a strange beast, but since I had one of these boards back in the day, I have been waiting to get my hands on one. I knew full well it was going to arrive in non-working condition. I was correct, save for the after market fan that someone mounted to the back of the case due to the heat issues these had, and hell with 2 full height drives (Which brand I have never heard of) it probably was able to fry an egg. But that isn’t what I am concerned about at the moment. As with all Percoms, I replaced all 3 Voltage regulators (even though the top two were fine.) The RFD is the model that has those sockets for the regulators what was always an issue. (Had an issue with mine back in the 80s as well). I cleaned the contacts on the Sockets reinstalled the board and I got some life out of the old drives. They just spin and keep spinning for maybe 3-4 minutes and stop. I knew from the AT-88 that I fixed up that this was not proper behavior but I gave it a shot and plugged it into my 130 XE. Nothing. Not really a surprise here. So, i checked the caps, they were all showing “something” on my multimeter. I don’t have an ESR meter so I couldn’t properly test them. So I had some 33uF 16V caps from the AT-88 project so I swapped out all the 33uF caps. Four in all. Plugged it back in and the same result. Check the caps, the top two over by the regulators show ok, the third one down shows OL. However, if I pull it from Circuit it shows fine. The one on the opposite side of the SIO ports shows high capacitance in circuit but fine when pulled out (not too much of a Surprise). So I am stumped. I checked my Diodes, most of the time they show fine, sometimes when I check them they give me a strange reading but for the most part I think they are ok. I didn’t pull the two big Caps (I think they are filters) but in circuit after discharge they seem to show proper capacitance. I did check the transformer it seems to be pushing the right voltage (from what I can tell) and the correct voltage appears to be running thru the caps. (5 and 12 volts). So Now I turn to you, does anyone have any clue as to where my fault is. I am not electronically trained but I can fumble my way around. I have included a bunch of pictures and a video showing the diodes. Thanks in advanced! Craig Percom_RFD_Photos.zip
  9. I'm looking to purchase a working Skunkboard for the Jaguar v2 or v3. Just got back into this and looks like I missed out.
  10. I started this round of the swap box and it came back fully loaded to the gills!!
