DOSXE has been released and is available direct from Atari. The prices I have been told range between $10.00 to $15.00. Write to Atari Corp for more details. Keith Ledbetter has removed his Express Telecom files from CompuServe. Rumor has it he is working on a cartridge based program similiar to the ST telecom file "Interlink". We will update this story when we can. Alan Reeves has released a few peripheral handlers for Diamond. Recent uploads to the GENIE ATARI8 RT include an ST-Mouse, Touch-Tablet handler. Check out GEnie for these files. Anything else happening you ask?? Well, other than a few more PD files being released, things are slow. One question we would like answered is where are all those cartridges promised? I would assume that Atari is working on it's promises. For more ST related news and features, read STZMAG available on the services. Recent bulletins on CompuServe in the Atari8 and ST areas talk about requests from ANALOG and ST-LOG. They are looking for your requests for their respective magazines. Do you have a comment to pass along? Let them know! On CompuServe type: GO ATARIVEN and respond! Z-NET details coming soon! ############################## <*> GOE/TCS UPDATE ############################## Total Control Systems, David R. Sullivan You probably first heard of GOE back in August/September of 1988, at that time GOE was shown at the 1988 AtariFest in Glendale, CA. A DEMO Disk followed in October on GEnie and in user groups. Now, January 1989, GOE is about to be released. GOE has been tested over the last 3 to 4 weeks to insure that it is a bug-free and usable product, it is my hope that GOE will become the new standard OS for the Atari 8 bit computers. STATUS OF GOE: A) We are currently running behind our released schedule, this is DUE to dificulty and time needed to completely develop a cartridge based product that provides a new and exciting operating environment while at the same time maintaining 100% compatability with ALL existing software. Added to the level of programming required, GOE was originally being developed in a situation that required over 15 minutes to test a single change in GOE -- that has been corrected (curtesy of Atari, CORP. and ICD's extensive help). B) GOE is in it's final debugging stages, and provided that it receives a clean bill of health GOE will be shipped the first week of February. C) Several beta testers have been using GOE for 2 weeks now, all press and other qualified people will receive beta cartridges 1 week ahead of shipping. D) The Turbo 816 and GOE, GOE will be tested with the Turbo 816 before it is shipped to insure compatability. A Turbo 816 version is planned, this will be a full 16 bit version of GOE. I am communicating with DataQue in an attempt to make GOE the standard for the Turbo 816, the advantage of the Turbo 816 is tremendous and gives you a true 16bit computer at a great price! E) I am communicating with Atari, CORP. keeping an open ear to their ideas. With Atari selling thousands of 800xl, 130xe and XEGS computers the Atari 8bit future looks bright. Not to mention the support Atari, CORP. is giving in the entertainment area. F) Advance order's, if you have placed an advance order, it will be filled with top priority. As a BONUS, all people ordering in advance will receive a free BONUS Disk containing some exciting new software. G) Price: The retail price of GOE is $79.95, all discounts for advance orders are now void. User Group discounts are available. H) If you have requested information, you will receive a mailer the first week of February notifying you that GOE is shipping and providing more information about GOE. I) Dealers, dealers packets are now ready and will be sent out within the next two weeks. Thank you for your support, the Atari 8bit users need you. I realize many of you have been waiting for GOE since late October, and I know it is hard to wait for an exciting new piece of Atari 8bit software; but I do not want GOE to be a product that is simply a toy. If GOE and the Atari 8bit are going to have a successful future together then GOE MUST BE A PROGRAM THAT YOU WILL USE. GOE will not be shipped until it is complete and fulfills your needs. Allowing press to be released about GOE as early as May, 1988 was not under my control nor my intent. The official press released in September/October 1988 was a little early but has been useful and has shown the public what GOE is via the DEMO released on GEnie. Once the information was about, I had to make the best of it and did not count on some of the misleading information I have been delt, or some of the legal problems that I would encounter. Stay tuned to the GEnie network for more information, GEnie is my link to you so let your thoughts be known. goPaint and goWrite DEMO versions will be released shortly after GOE starts shipping, but have been put on hold until then. Upon shipment, Total Control Systems will start supporting you with easy and clear example programs, useful public domain programs and powerful commercial programs. A download area here on GEnie will be your source for GOE public domain software. A new private area will be setup for GOE users and GOE developers where you can ask your questions. The current public area, CATegory 5, TOPic 24 will be used to convey public information and answer questions to the general public. Total Control Systems is working hard to make your Atari 8bit future a bright one, and we look forward to your support of our quality products. GEnie ID: D.SULLIVAN4 (David R.

I loaded the file into Textpro and massaged the file until I had something readable. 2) DOSXL only (or AtariDos, but definitely not Sparta). I have an MIO partition set up for this. 3) Everything is done from D1:. Codebuster won't work with any other drive. I booted the Dos from an MIO boot, put in a floppy with LABELS and my source machine language file on it, then went for the MIO switch. After moving the floppy assignment to D1 (a real floppy) and CB.COM to D3, I loaded D3:CB.COM, which brought up the screen. At this point I was in Codebuster with an almost blank floppy disk, ready to go to work. 4) Every snivelling little step must be done manually. First one must <ELABELS> (a space between the command and the filename is not necessary, but drive assignments are not legal). This loads the OS equates into the buffer and turns on the label attaching logic. LABELS contains a full set of both low and high memory equates in AMAC form. This must be the first step, since entering LABELS after entering code to be disassembled overwrites some code. 5) Next <OFILENAME.EXT> (open) as an output file. 6) <RFILENAME.EXT> (read) loads your binary file into the buffer. Multiple load points and two blocks of code with the same load point, as in a short routine to write to the screen as the rest of the program loads, are separated. Be careful about disassembling too much code; one only has one floppy on which to write source. I loaded Textpro in a total of four loadpoints, and I split the main program into two pieces. 7) <SD> sends output to disk. 8) <UFILENAME.EXT> closes the output file after disassembly. 9) <%FILENAME.EXT> reloads the output file and attaches the label logic. ****************************** <*> 800 OWNERS COLUMN ****************************** (Editors Note:) There are a few articles in our archives that we haven't printed because they address the 400-800 Atari systems. Of the 134 survey responses received to date, 50 or more respondents stated they still owned or used thier 800. In an effort to keep this percentage of our readers interested, we will publish material written for or about the 800. The following article was released in 1983 on CompuServe. (This is the place I found it a few years ago and recently came across it again.) CARTRIDGE SWITCHES by HOWARD SIEBENROCK As you know, when you plug a ROM cartridge into the left slot of your Atari 800 computer, you disable the top 8K of RAM. This is done by disabling one input of an OR gate (Z102B) that normally passes the address lines A15 and A14, decoded by chip Z101 to be S5, to the RAM slots. The S5 signal is wired to the left cartridge slot, pin 12, to enable the ROM chips in the cartridge. Pin 14 of the cartridge is connected inside to the +5 volt line. When the cartridge is inserted into the left slot this +5 volts is then connected to the Z102B OR gate to disable the S5 signal to the RAM slots. The S5 signal is the address for 40K to 48K of RAM. The right cartridge does the same thing, except it used A15 and A13, decoded by Z101 as S4, for it's enable line. Pin 14, the +5 volt signal, of the right cartridge, disables S4 to the RAM slots with OR gate Z102A. The S4 signal is the address for 32K to 40K of the RAM. If, while the cartridge is inserted, the +5 volt signal to the OR gate could be opened, The RAM would then be enabled. If the S5 line to the left cartridge is also opened, the cartridge chips data output would be tri- stated. (tri-stated is a third binary output state for digital chips. It is a high impedance state that electronically disconects the chip from the data buss). Since the address lines, A0 to A12, are inputs, they can be left on the buss. By using a switch, mounted on the case, the programer can select if RAM or the cartridge ROM is on the data buss. A second switch will do the same for the right cartridge ROM. If the S5 enable line, normally going to the left slot, is switched to the right slot, the right cartridge will be addressed as a left cartridge. You also have to switch the +5 volt signal from the right cartridge to the Z102B gate to turn off the 40K to 48K RAM. I must warn you. If your computer is under warranty, don't modify it! The parts needed are two minature toggle switches. Both are double pole, double throw, one is a two posistion (on-on), and the other is a three posistion (on-off-on) switch. A two foot length of eignt conductor ribbon cable (Unless you planed ahead and put in a ten conductor ribbon cable with the reset modification last time) and 10-12 inch lengths of small insulated wire. Once you have the parts and tools, proceed to disemble the computer to the mother board. Don't forget the CMOS handling caution! _____ 1. Drill a hole near the center of the board for two small wires to pass through from the top to the bottom of the board. Be careful not to drill near or through any circuit runs. Hold the mother board up to a strong light to be able to see the runs on the bottom of the board and mark the location with a felt pen. _____ 2. Cut the five runs by making two cuts across the run about 1/16 inch apart, then heat the 1/16 piece with a soldering iron until it lifts off the board. 1) From R109 to left cartridge pin 14. 2) From feed through to left cartridge pin 12. 3) From Z102 pin 4 to left cartridge pin A. 4) From Z102 pin 5 to feed through. 5) From Z101 pin 5 to feed through. _____ 3. Run an insulated jumper from Z102 pin 5 to Z101 pin 5. Scrape the solder mask from the run just above where you made the cuts and solder the jumper to the run. Be careful with the soldering iron, remember how easy it was to remove the 1/16 inch cut out piece? Check your work carefully as you go to be sure the wires are soldered good and there are no solder bridges between runs. _____ 4. Mount the connector in the lower right courner of the mother board, if you did not do so last time. _____ 5. Run eight wires (I used small, solid, insulated telephone wire) from the cut circuit runs to the connector as follows. 1) From R108 on the top through the hole to connector pin 5 on the bottom. 2) From Z101 pin 5 on the top through the hole to connector pin 6. 3) From left cartridge connector pin 1 to connector pin 7. 4) From left cartridge connector pin A to connector pin 8. 5) From left cartridge connector pin 12 to connector pin 3. 6) From left cartridge connector pin 14 to connector pin 4. 7) From R109 solder pad to connector pin 1. 8) From Z102 pin 2 (at the feed through) to pin 2. _____ 6. Drill two holes and mount the cartridge select switches on the left of the case top. Be sure the center off switch is to the left when viewed from the top. _____ 7. The eight wires from the connector plug will now be connected. Above each wire write in the color of the wire you have coming from the connector plug. _____ 8. Solder the two jumpers from the right switch to the left switch. I used heat shrink tubing on all switch connections to be sure there are no stray wires to cause shorts. Connect the eight wires from the connector plug to the cartridge select switches. Then trace each wire to be sure they are connected properly! _____ 9. Now is the time to check all of your work carefully to be sure there are no shorts or solder bridges or frayed wires any where, and that all connections are proper! _____10. Reassemble your computer and cable it to your system. Install the BASIC cartridge in the left slot and set both switches ON (up). Leave the disk drive off and power up. You should see the familiar READY prompt on the screen. If you don't then check that both switches are ON (up). If they are, then you have a mistake in your wiring. You will have to disemble the computer and check the wiring again. Be sure to check which pin you used as #1 on the new connector. If at first you got the READY prompt then flip the left switch to the OFF (center) position and do a COLD reset. You should now have the memo pad title. Flip the left switch down (RIGHT cartridge position) and do a COLD reset. You should still have the memo pad title. Flip both switches ON (up), and do a COLD reset. You should have the BASIC ready prompt. In direct mode exicute the following command. ? FRE(0). The number you see printed is the amount of free RAM you have. Make a note of this number then install another cartridge in the RIGHT slot. With both switches ON (up) you should get the BASIC ready prompt. Execute the ? FRE(0) command again and compare the number printed on the screen with the number you got before. It should be 8192 less. This is because the cartridge in the right slot deselected 8K of RAM. Flip the RIGHT switch OFF and do a COLD reset then exicute the command ? FRE(0) again. You should get the original number on the screen, because the right cartridge has been electronicly removed from the buss. Flip the LEFT switch OFF (center position) and do a COLD reset. You should now have the Memo pad title. Flip the LEFT switch to RIGHT (all the way down) and do a COLD reset and you should see a screen appropriate to the cartridge you have in the RIGHT slot. Flip the LEFT switch ON and the RIGHT switch OFF and turn on the disk drive. When the busy light goes out insert a diskette with DOS on it and do a COLD reset. The screen should have the BASIC READY prompt, or what ever is appropriate for the software on your diskette. Flip the LEFT switch OFF (center posistion) and do a COLD reset. The disk should reboot and come up with the DOS menu. I could go on with many different uses for the CARTRIDGE SWITCHES and the COLD RESET SWITCH, but I think you get the idea. One last idea. If you have a cartridge to disk copier, you can forget jamming the cover switch and inserting the cartridge to be copied in the right slot with the power on. Just insert the cartridge in the right slot and flip the RIGHT cartridge switch OFF and close the cover. When the software instructs you to insert the cartridge, just flip the RIGHT switch ON. I hope you have enjoyed these articles, even if you don't attempt to do them. If you have any comments or suggestions, fell free to write to me. HOWARD SIEBENROCK 9309 W. 98 Court.

I have run a preliminary speed test between ARC version 5.12 for the IBM and ARC version 2.0 (UNARC version 2.3) for the Atari. Hardware: 1. IBM XT DOS 3.3 -Turbo card installed -internal hard disk -3.5 in. 720K floppy 2. Atari 130XE 576K SpartaDOS 3.2 -512K RAM DISK -2 INDUS GT disk drives The IBM was used in and out of turbo mode. The test was run on the GOE.ARC file downloaded from GENIE. Here are the results: +--------------------------------+-----------------------+ | ARC | UNARC | +--------------------------------+-----------------------+ | IBM IBM | IBM IBM | | Hard Disk Floppy | Hard Disk Floppy | +---------+-----------+----------+-------------+---------+ |Turbo In | 76 | 133 | 39 | 68 | |Turbo Out| 163 | 212 | 78 | 101 | +---------------------+----------+-------------+---------+ | Atari Atari | Atari Atari | | Ram Disk Floppy | Ram Disk Floppy | +---------------------+----------+-------------+---------+ | 58 | 301 | 26 | 232 | +---------------------+----------+-------------+---------+ As you can see the Atari with the Ram Disk was faster by 23.7% running ARC, and 33.3% faster running UNARC compared to the IBM in turbo mode (64.4% and 66.6% IBM out of turbo). But the IBM beat the Atari running on the floppy disk. The IBM in turbo mode was faster by 55.8% running ARC, and 70.7% running UNRC (29.6% and 56.5% IBM out of turbo mode). It would be interesting to see the results of this test with the Atari running under SpartDOS X and high speed disk access. So what does this test tell us? We all know about the slow disk drive access of the Atari. If drive access speeds were equal on both computers, it looks like the 8 bit Atari would be a very tough competitor of the XT. Or is the ARC/UNARC program for the Atari more efficient? ______________________________________ Xx IBM Monitor With Your XEP80 ______________________________________ by Bob Woolley If you read my earlier article in DL7 about the XEP80, you might remember that the XEP80 uses all of the display field of the monitor and the two cheap composite monitors that I had tried did not give a very satisfactory display. I have been using a high quality video unit from a NorthStar Horizon that works very well, but a monitor like that would be very difficult for the average user to find (not to mention, expensive). I spent some time at the West Coast Computer Faire looking for some reasonable candidates, but none of the vendors had composite monochrome monitors on display! There were lots of monochrome displays with seven zillion lines of resolution, a built in swivel base, non-glare screens - the works. Good prices, too! But every one was TTL, IBM. Wellll......... Never being one to shy away from a little soldering, I decided to investigate the possibility of adapting the XEP80 to an IBM monochrome monitor. The IBM TTL monitors have a separate input for the sync and video signals, whereas the XEP80 generates a composite signal containing all three components. I figured that a little circuit to strip the Horizontal and Vertical sync from the Video couldn't be that hard, but it turns out that the XEP80 has all the signals you need inside the box! The whole project didn't amount to anything more than soldering one end of a 10" piece of four conductor ribbon cable onto the XEP80 board and connecting a 9 pin joystick socket to the other end. I tried the XEP80 on a standard IBM monochrome monitor and it worked fine! I also tried it on some OEM TTL monitors made for an IBM PC (an AMDEK 310A and a SAMSUNG MD1254G) and that also worked well. After a little pot tweaking (a LOT of tweaking on the SAMSUNG). The XEP80 uses a lower Horizontal frequency than the IBM PC, so some OEM monitors may require adjustment, but not so much that you need to re-adjust it between a PC and your Atari. The display field on the TTL units does not overscan the face of the tube so there is no adjustment required for that problem. Also, the linearity is very good on these guys, so all the characters look great! The major disadvantage to a TTL monitor is the absence of audio on them, although I prefer a separate audio amplifier anyway. [Enough babbling, I waannnt one! How do I do the mod, dummy??] The wiring required is: (from the bottom of the XEP80 board) Pin 1 and 2 of 9 pin socket to pin 7 of U6. Pin 7 of 9 pin socket to the pad 1/4 inch to the left of pin 8 of U6. (This pad is the same distance to the LEFT of pin 8 as pin 7 is to the RIGHT of pin 8.) Pin 8 of 9 pin socket to pin 9 of U6. Pin 9 of 9 pin socket to pin 10 of U6. I ran the flat cable out where the power switch is mounted. The bottom cover will clamp the cable between the board and the bottom cover at this point and provide some strain relief. I would imagine that you could use a much longer cable, but at some point you will begin to lose character resolution. Now, you can take advantage of any good deals you might see on a quality IBM monitor. I saw many different TTL units for less than $100 at the WCCF. Most of them looked like much better devices than any composite monitor I have seen and they are everywhere. If you are reasonably adept at soldering, or know someone who is, think about using one of these TTL monitors on your XEP80. The normal composite output is not affected by the modification at all. Now, if I can hack an IBM keyboard onto this thing.....
