A 'Handy' guide to the Atari Lynx

Recommended Posts

This is nice. 2 suggestions for making it better:

 

- Black text on the grey Lynx textured background is difficult to read. Lose the textured background, as it makes the document look like a Geocities website.

 

 

Uhhhhh......

All inputs greatly appreciated. I'll try and do a page without the X pattern background and see if you prefer it.

Cool. That will make it way more readable, which is the goal, after all. More tips here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Content_Accessibility_Guidelines

 

Are you hung up on the PDF format? Seems like HTML would be nicer, but I guess having it all in one portable document would be nice. I would reduce some image quality to keep the total size down when it's complete, as would chapter stops for easy navigation. Do that stuff last, though.

Hi everyone,

I've been working on this sporadically due to other things going on but here is a Christmas release. I've been working on Homebrew and Homebrew hardware. I've lightened the 'X' background so hopefully its a bit more readable. I don't want to drop this 'X' background because I feel it defines the Lynx, let me know if its ok. There's still so much to add but I hope you enjoy it.

Merry Christmas to you all.

BadPricey,

Along with all the other stuff you are adding, have you thought about adding the different boxes the Lynx came in I.e, the standard boxes and the different promotional boxes?

Yes I'd like everything to be in there that is Lynx related. That way everyone would know what was/is available. Send any Lynx info and pics to my email address [email protected]

Hi everyone,

Very minor update to the 'Handy' guide, I've added some new homebrew hardware and software information. Still lots to add so slow progress on my part I'm afraid. Any errors or omissions please let me know. Enjoy!

 

Note - It's large size cause an Oops! error. Clicking download works ok.
