    Sears sold my parents a non-working unit and we had to wait for what seemed like an eterniity to get the replacement. After that rough start, there were many game trades with friends during my childhood that became kind of a social thing for us. I eventually ended up with a 800xl and 1050 disk drive. Now I repair and restore all Atari. Funny how that works out.

    The other beneift to the UNO is that you don't have to hard reset the computer. There is a button on the UNO cart that you hit first, then RESET on the Atari for a nice warm restart. ( Menu pops back up ) This is less hard on the system over time.

    Here is the Eiffel 3 from Belgium. You can connect a PS2 mouse, PS2 keyboard, USB mouse, and two joysticks. It was around $30 shipped.

    Hi all!
    So a buddy and I picked up two Megs ST2's. They both came with a 16mhz accelerator + switch. No Keyboards.
    We both have an Eiffel 3 coming.
    So I did some testing with games that would auto boot, with the switch on for 16mhz, and off for 8mhz, respectivley.
    HOLY TOLEDO! Buggy Boy runs like its a Genesis game and the Time Bandit demo runs WAAAY to fast. 🙂
    So at this point I'm thinking any game that is either 3D or that has many sprites on the screen will benefit.
    When the Eiffel3 comes in I will do some more comparisons and post them here. I think I'll start with painfully slow shooters.. maybe Star Wars and R*Type2..

    Paul Westphal reacted to TrekMD in New Atari 8-Bit Homebrew - Adam is Me   
    A new game is being released for the Atari 8-Bit computers:  "ADAM IS ME"
    ADAM IS ME is a puzzle video game for 8bit Atari XE/XL computers. The game is heavily inspired by the award-winning "Baba Is You" by Arvi Teikari and "Robbo" by Janusz Pelc, but with original puzzles, levels and game mechanics. In the game you interact with physical objects and words that when connected set a new game rules.
    Game Story
    Earth scientists have created ADAM. A modern robot with implemented AI. They have sent it into deep space, so it could find cure for Virus that had appeared on Earth out of nowhere, and gradually began to decimate the population of our planet. ADAM's task is to collect vials of samples from nearby planets, in system far away from home. Gathered materials and data, could help science, and scientists believe that its discoveries will finally reveal a drug, that will save humanity.
    It turned out, that in this system, one of the stars collapsed, and this event had created a black hole. This object slowly sucks matter from another neighboring star and from nearby planets. In threatened system, which stood on the brink of destruction, various anomalies began to appear and the laws of physics known so far ceased to work correctly... ADAM has to change these laws accordingly, and find a way through all 8 planets.

    Game Features
    64 levels to complete 8 worlds with unique graphics 5 music tracks Original puzzles Ability to revert time New game mechanics Outstanding intro and outro Works on Atari 800XL with 64KB of RAM and 1.77 MHz CPU PAL and NTSC supported
