Hello guys! I need your help Atari 800, ATARI 800XL/600XL owners! If you guys own a caliber I urgently need to know which size in millimeters (or even better in keycaps unit 1U) the following keys: ATARI 800: - CONTROL key (to my measurements using pictures found on internet) 1.5U - LSHIFT key 1.75U as well as the RSHIFT - FUNCTION KEYS (Select, Start...) 1.5U - CLR SET TAB key 1.5U - RETURN key 1.5U ATARI 800XL - CONTROL key 2.0U - LSHIFT key 2.25U - RSHIFT key 2.0U - CAPS LOWR key 1.25U - RETURN key 1.75U - ESC key 1.25U - FUNCTION KEYS are spaced as 1U keysize. The only correct keyboard I can check is the Atari 130XE style... In attachment the PDF layouts of those keycaps (used by MaxKeyboard) and the keysize in keycap units. Please help me, Gianluca atari-800-xl-style-maxkeyboard.pdf atari-xe-style-maxkeyboard.pdf
Hi, I made some cassette j-cards for some of my Atari 8-bit games, and I thought I'd share them with you guys. They're saved at actual size, so you shouldn't have to mess with any settings to print them at the correct size. I highly recommend printing these on card stock or any kind of white paper that's thicker than regular printer paper. Cut along the faintly colored border and fold according to the white markers in the bleed-in area. So far, I've made j-cards for States & Capitals, Hangman, Preppie!, Energy Czar, and SCRAM, with plans to make more for other games. Energy Czar Hangman Preppie! SCRAM States & Capitals
Not really sure what this is worth, B]but I thought I would start to sell this here. I was thinking of 50$ let me know if that is to High or to low. It is in great condition and works well. Has the original box and packing. Thanks, Brad
Hello! I have this really weird problem with my Atari 800xl. After just finished building in, and testing my stereo upgrade next to my u1mb, I did something stupid. Well, I saw my mistake after the first black screen but I can't for the life of my understand why the problem persists. So, what happened? Well this: for the stereo upgrade you need to add a wire for the pin 15 on the GTIA chip and pin 13 on the cpu, Did that, tested it opened up, worked so yippeee right? I wasn't thinking 100% straight and put the shielding on, screwed the atari together and turned it on. Black screen. Fuck!!! I forgot to tape off the exposed wire @ the gtia and cpu and so they probably came in contact with the shielding and you can guess the rest... So now I get a black screen, and after a couple of seconds a low sound starts, and ramps up in tone in around 7 seconds and then ramps down again... It's not ramping up in volume, but ramping up in frequency. So it starts at C#1 or something and ends up at C#4, but not all the way up. Does anybody have an idea whats goin on? I tried disconnecting the stereoboard and just seat the pokey but no cigar. Maybe a fried CPU or GTIA? I am not a hardware specialist but this wasn't my proudest moment... :'(
