Re: SWAPs - Abacus series of Atari ST books

I'll also revive this thread by asking if anyone knows how many editions of volume 2 "Atari ST Internals" there were. I have the third edition, dated 1988, which has details of the blitter chip. I also have the machine language book, but as a hardback published in 1986 by First Publishing...

Re: [pics] Homebrew Mega STe case

I know some of the origin story of that motherboard...... Well, a group of 100 or so Mega STe motherboards. They came from Toad Computers in the USA. Before they were at Toad, Atari Corp had shipped the full systems from a warehouse in California to a company to destroy them. This company crushed t...

[pics] Homebrew Mega STe case

Hi All, I aquired a Mega Ste recently, but it was missing several components, incluing the case itself. I've got it working OK now, so it needs a box to put it in. These pics show the progress so far, it's not finished and its not neat or tidy, but it will hopefully protect the board from me droppin...

Mega STe - using ASCI port without internal board?

Hi all,

I have got my mega ste working :) but it doesn't have the internal hard drive board, so as I understand it, the external ASCI port will not work.

Can I attach an Ultratan directly to the connector on the board, or do I need some sort of adapter ?

cheers :)

Re: I made this Atari Cabaret Cabinet.

presumably, you'll stick a PC with MAME / emulators on it ?

or are you going to oldschool it with a JAMMA board ?

Re: Vintage Atari 1040ST – Monitor – Manual - Mouse x 2 – Cables

note to people reading this - a lot of the auctions this user is linking to are to different seller accounts, so may not be 100% genuine.
We are looking into this, but personally even if the crazy prices don't put you off, I'd steer clear.
