What's the latest Atari related thing(s) you've bought on ebay?

Recommended Posts

Shamus was a game at random really the adjustments in auto-fire speed works

What other games would you recommend i test with?

One from recent memory - Into the Eagles Nest, a late XEGS game (88) is really annoying without auto-fire.

Picked Up a couple 810s off of eBay. One is a Happy Drive that was refurbished by a guy in San Jose. Probably an Atariage member I bet. Anyone know where to purchase the special happy software from?

AFAIK the latest software for the Happy 810 is V5.3

There's also a later happy 7 version for the 810, and 7.1 disks. Try both and see what works. Also could be interesting to open it up to see what's inside. there's various hardware versions of the happy 810, the oldest ones being hand wire wrapped. Although one of yours is the later Tandon mech, If thats the Happy, it's more likely to be a later happy revision.

 

Congrats on receiving yours intact! My case was destroyed in shipping due to almost nonexistant packing material.

Always try to help get it packed safely... It's worth it, even if apprehensive or reluctant.. offer how to and pictures of the safe good way to do it. So many things are lost to the two story package drop of the sorting machines!

Nothing but the 830, but it looks clean and nothing rattles around. Smaller in person than I thought it would be. No PS.

 

I just want to get an 810 and then stick my 800 with an 810, 850 and 830 and a nice old Bell Phone on a spare desk and then look at them every once in a while.

I can't even use it as I have VOIP and got rid of my copper phone lines many years ago.

 

Maybe find that 40 col thermal printer too someday.

Hi, Just in case you dont have a PS for the 830 yet. I have found a cheap alternative. It is a match for voltage and capacity 24VAC and 4.8VA, not sure about the connector, but it can be changed: search ebay for SPN4027A.

example:

A nice working 400 lot, including the original box and foam. A few common carts and a boxed Typo. $75.

KerChunk KerChunk KerChunk....

 

Nice printer. Wish I still had mine.

:)

I had one I was going to restore, but it was stolen out of my storage unit with lots of other stuff.

Took a chance on an 'untested' 800 because the price was right - $50.

 

Horribly packaged, of course it arrived damaged. They guy literally wrapped it in Saran wrap and stuffed it in a box that he could just barely tape shut after adding some shredded paper to take up the space above the keyboard.

 

Oh well, at least it works. I could get my money back from just the keyboard and POKEY. A curt message has been sent requesting a partial refund.

 

Sadly missing the paper label, so no serial number to report in the Calling 800s thread.

Finally!, After many months, a friend brought me my new XC11 from San Pedro de la Paz, Chile.

It looked dirty and ugly from outside, but it was nothing compared to the inside. Still very excited to clean it, fix it and use it.

I also got an Atari 800XL. It doesn't boot. Not only dirty inside but also all rusty.

Finally an 822 printer. Missed it at a third of the price a couple of years ago.

The last Atari related item I bought from eBay was this NTSC 800. I recently upgraded the video with a Super Color CPU Card and bought a PVM to go along with it.

 

She is in great condition and proudly occupies this space beside my... dare I say it.

Tuesday I received my "new" Atari 1050 disk drive with an original Happy mod. I'm currently archiving my original college collection, just to see if I have any "missing" gems that aren't already available online. She's a beauty and seems to be working fine.

Last week saw a complete AtariLab starter set for only $25 shipped. Always wanted to play around with one of these!

Also, another working 800 for only $74.99 shipped. Not too bad.

800s are always fun to take a gamble on because you never know what might be lurking in the expansion slots. This one was just a stock 48k unit.

I bought an MFM/RLL to SD Adapter. It was expensive, but I wanted it to put in a MegaFile 30 that has no hard drive. I imagine it will also work with a Black Box or MIO and a Bridge host adapter (Adaptec 4000a or 4070 or other).
