It isn't good idea. SELECT key was use in original Karin Maxi Drive to change disk drive number between D1 and D2 :(

START is booting sequence for compiled Atari Basic programs for casette player. Maybe OPTION+SELECT will be good idea for it. Or any key during intro to skip it?

Yeah, I was afraid there might be a conflict like that. The check isn't made until the first two sectors are loaded, so it might still work with Karin Maxi Drive if you time the pressing of SELECT just right.

 

Nevertheless, I've gone ahead and made it so you can skip the intros by pressing trigger or any keyboard key as well. I'd like to retain at least one option for XEGS users without a keyboard.

I think, that isn't real problem for this - but please think about it in future prods. I have Atari 1050 and CA2001 disk drive too, so - it isn't mayority problem ;)

Finally I had the time to take a picture of the box, so you can see how it looks like!

 

As there were the requests I made the decission to include the pin-set to first 20 editions.

So there are still available the box including the three pins with the following designs:

PRO ( C ) ATARI

RANSACK

FUJI LOGO

 

So please support the PRO ( C ) ATARI Magazine and the incredible work of Jose Peirera, Xuel and Poison...

with purchasing this mighty Edition.

 

Cheers

Markus

I'll take one too to show some support for the magazine - if issue 5 is anytime soon let me know if I can combine postage costs (I am happy to wait a while) :)

 

I would vote for a small box/package if there was a choice (future releases perhaps) as I have a whole big box of Atari software in a cupboard :|

X:8 still have a lot to do for what we intend it will have and the type of game it'll end up it would and will be multi-load but in a public and free release.
If it all ends good and a limited edition it needs and better in cartridge...

Hi dudes...

 

thanks for the cool feedback!

 

@Jose:

Thanks you rule! You might have recognized from Steve's side progress or issue #5 in german AND english is really cool.

So expect some news on the upcoming issue soon my friend!

 

BOXES

I know situation. The problem is: All smaller boxes are not fit the disk into it, everywhere some mm missing, grrr...

I would like to make boxes like boardgames are packed in, but sure in smaller size.

But there we should need 50 units each sold and we are far away reaching this amount.

But sure I have an eye on this matter everytime!

 

CARTRIDGES

I would love to do cartridges. but found until now NONE can manufatcuring them for me.

if you have any ideas, just send me a PM (best to the email adress).

 

@ARNAUD:

well... if things happen like we expect than the next game will be a never released before.

will say a BRANDNEW one... I will keep you updated!

 

Thanks for your all support, hugs, critics etc.

All is welcome and recognized!

 

Cheers mates

 

Yours Markus
