  1. $300 plus shipping from Portland, Oregon TOS 2.06 and the Ym2149 are socketed. NEW 3.25 Floppy. The MOD in the pics speeds up HD transfer rates. No mouse Power Cable and Hercules Workshop A/V ( composite out ) cable included All cleaned and ready to sexy up your Mancave! Paul
  2. It looks way better than previous attempts at mini golf. Nice work..
  3. SOUND. Random Birds chirping, maybe some light music... SOUND.
  4. SIO to USB is clunky ~
  5. The fact that it scrolls is sweet, and I like the title screen. Arkanoid type power ups and downs would be nice..
  6. That 7800 programmer would be Bob Decrendeso on AA.
  7. I'm Back Dudes Ayyyy!

  8. Once in a while, something awesome Just appears on the scene. This game is one of those.
  9. Rebooteroids is good, but not $80 good.

  10. For the Sinistar release, I'm going to take sound speaker out of greeting cards and reprogram them with " beware, I live " and pug it in the game case so when you open it up...

  11. I asked him if he could change his " XEGS " section to " Atari 8 bit - XEGS ". He complied.
  12. 400 - With 48k ram card, it's great! Retro look and small footprint. Membrane Keyboard sucks, but we don't use it for typing, now do we? Has SIO port. NO monitor out port, RF unless modded. Easy repairs. 800 - It's a beast, but built very well and repairs are easy, but time consuming. Keyboard has a great feel. Has monitor out port, so use that to get a superior picture. Getting harder to find. 1200xl - Recessed cart port, no PBI port, SIO ( +5 volts can be restored to it by resistor removal, so so SIO to SD card reader can be used ) Monitor out ( video can be cleaned up by similar resistor removal ). Large footprint, but you can fit lots of upgrades in it. Keyboard is great when they are repaired. Weird OS with SOME compataibility problems. 600xl - THEY ARE ALL SOCKETED, because they were all made in Hong Kong. Built well. PBI port. SIO. Internal 64k ram upgrade Is super easy. 600xl is RF ONLY, but all the holes are there so you can put in a monitor port ( time consuming ) With said upgrades, it has the smallest footprint of all 64k machines. Some keyboards are better than others. I HAVE put stereo in one.. 800xl - Best all around A8. Earlier Mobo revisions need a resistor removed for improved video. Hong Versions are socketed. SIO, PBI. Even soldered mobo's are easy to work on because they are built well. XE Roundup - XEGS - Cart port on top, removable KB, great composite video out, SIO, NO PBI, 64k ram. Some have cheap ram that acts as static ram, switches are cheap, mobo's cheap and hard to work on. 65XE - Same cheapness as XEGS, BUT cart port on back. 130XE - 128k ram, cart port on back. For some reason, these had better ram than previous XE's. ECI port. ALL XE keyboards have a 'mushy' feel, but some versions can be upgraded with best electronics XE TOUCH mod. All That being said, I DO like the quirkiness of the XEGS and the XE line style, in general.
  13. Hey, that avatar that laddersandsnakes uses Is a poster that can be found in XE Dark Chambers, Maybe one other XE game has it too.
  14. I have also done 7800 composite, 400 48k, 800xl ultimate 1mb, 2600 composite, Vectrex re-cap, 800xl 256k, 1200xl video, XE keyboard mod...
