  1. Hi, I was just wondering if it would be possible to upload code to a Happy that would support much higher SIO transfer speeds such as pokey divisor 0. My thinking is that if the 6502 on the 8-bit can handle sending/receiving data at pokey divisor 0 rates, surely there's the possibility this could also work with a Happy drive if the appropriate code was uploaded to the RAM in a Happy. Obviously transfer would be fastest if it was done from the Happy track buffer, but I think there would be enough RAM to just upload an enhanced transfer routine, and have space for a track buffer. I think Hias's SIO code is only about 1K, and a Happy (1050) has either 6K or 8K of RAM.
  2. Hi, I have written a utility to dump the ROM from a Happy 1050, Lazer, or similarly modded disk drive to an Atari DOS file. The sources are at https://github.com/e474/DUMP1050/ if anyone wants to play around with them (I am a beginner with git, and haven't written any 6502 code for a long time). The program is based on source code from the Happy Programming series in the German Atari Magazin, 1987, issues 1 - 5. I'll be adding the translated articles and source files from the magazine in the near future. Hope this is of interest to anyone interested in programming Happy, Lazer or similar drives - any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks to Nezgar for testing an earlier version! dump1050.atr
  3. Hello fellow Atarians, picked up this item on ebay back in 2011. I used to run a search for "atari prototype" and if anything looked interesting throw in a bid. Won this item sold by a seller in Maryland with a description of "Mock-Up for Happy Drive CPU", stored it away and found it in the closet the other day. Thought you might enjoy checking it out. Cheers!
  4. So at Saturday's Open House at the Personal Computer Museum we received an incredible donation. Coming in at a staggering 28 boxes of (mostly) Atari stuff, we haven't even BEGUN to sort through all of the vintage goodness in here. However, it deserves special attention and I thought I would share it with the community. The donor used to work with Richard Adams of Happy Computers Inc. and all of his computers and drives were totally modded and tricked out. He was kind enough to leave us some instructions from the switches and so on. If that wasn't great enough, there was a Heavy-Sixer Atari 2600 (in the original box I might add) and dozens of original text-only label Atari 2600 carts, and an ORIGINAL MAGNAVOX ODYSSEY complete in the original packaging (and even the OUTER packaging). You have to see it to believe it. There was even one of those Atari Mickey Mouse pins in the package. There is more to discover, but for now go to this link (with pictures) to see what we received: http://www.pcmuseum....n_raszewski.asp Let me know what you think!
  5. Hey. Some weeks ago i got a 1050 drive with LED display mounted on front panel. I've foud that is an early (?) version of Happy Warp , and I decided to recreate the schematic. You can find the oryginal topic, pictures, rom, schematic etc here: http://www.atari.org...ic.php?id=11300 The eprom is marked HAPPY 3 Can anyone recognize this version? eprom: hw_V3.bin The drive is not working, someone was trying to repair it but with no luck, now is my turn
  6. Hi, recently bought a 1050 where a Happy-Clone from IRATA (Berlin Germany) is installed. It also runs flawlessly, only it has a few more contact surfaces (see picture), and I can not find ANYWHERE documents. So I wanted to know if any of you still have information about it (Schematics, Switches like "Speed on/off" a.s.o.) It is also recognized by Happy-Tooldisk 1 as Happy, and the tests run completely, except for ROM positive - But I had the same with another Happy-Clone that it hooked right there, which is also logical, because the values of the EPROM are not 100% those of the origin. I just want to know what else I can do with it, that is, what else I can connect and above all where on the PINS. And important : What features are included? tya for reading 🙂
  7. I recently aquired an Atari 1050 drive with a Happy Upgrade (genuine). I tried to run 1050 diagnostic software against it, but that doesn't work. I don't have any Happy software for this, and I'm 'green' when it comes to the Happy drive enhancements. If someone could point me to an .atr, .atx, or .scp of 1050 happy diagnostic software, I want to check RPM, track zero sensor, etc.... as out of my stack of test floppies, it has a problem with a few of them that other drives don't. I have other questions as well: Are there different versions of the firmware ? If so, can I upgrade by burning an EPROM and replacing the existing ROM on the Happy board ? If so, which ROM should I use and where can it be found ? What version of the software should I use, and where is a good place to get .atr, .atx, .scp, etc of the software for this drive ? Thanks.
  8. Hi all, Back in the day when I traded my first Atari in for a 130XE with 320Kb and 6 different ROM's () I also got a Atari 1050. It was a Atari 1050 with Happy, tracking sensor, write-protect switch and density identifying led's. Unfortunately the 1050 is not working so great anymore. I don't use it as often anymore, but I really would like to so it working properly. Where would I start with restoring the Happy 1050? I did some diagnostics a few months ago. I remember the RAM test being failed, so maybe that's the only problem. Are there perhaps some more diagnostics available? I doubt it is an original board, but I made some pictures. There are some IC markings scratched off, but I'm sure someone can tell me what is what :-) Also, I'm looking for someone that can alter a front bezel of the 1050. Because the tracking sensor's casing broke when I moved to another house several years ago. So now the display is hanging outside the case Louis
