Re: Atom Colour Tests

Oh! I thought this was a pure hw mod, i.e. you'd set the colors by poking some addresses and it would always give the same chrome "angle". I feel like I reply without knowing enough so I replied to the quite long thread. :P If there's a link which explains it to someone history-less like me I'd be h...

Re: Atom Colour Board Thread

From memory, I seem to recall a color mod for the Atom in an ancient club magazine. I don't think it involved a board though? (Or is it the "Classic color card"?) Different thing maybe for TV? And this works on RGB monitors, which is what I have planned next. Is this project still active? I read a p...

Re: Hello from Sweden

Thx guys :) I already got the archive and *might* sneak a preview in an emu, but for the moment I'm trying to solve the "chicken and egg" problem of all platforms - how to transfer software to and from it. (This was answered in another post in this forum and I'm awaiting some unknown criteria to let...

Re: Meet my new Atom (warning: lots of images)

Hoped to see some nice images, but it's true that they don't load. If you have a Dropbox or Drive you could link an album? :)

Re: Atom Colour Tests

Didn't get at all what you meant by orange at first, it looked like beige to me :) What I did notice was that the color photo doesn't show this change in intensity that the Chroma-less one does. Could there be some translation going on in the YC to RGB circuit in the latter monitor? Or is it in the ...

Hello from Sweden

I got my first computer, an Atom pretty late at age 11 in 1982, but it was a revelation! Since then, probably 20+ home computers passed review in just a few years, and even more in school. At 15 I went to student exchange in Wales and had my hands on a Beeb at school (I saw some 2D top-view Billiard...

Where to buy the AtoMMC(2)?

Hullo. :) History has a way of repeating itself. My first computer at age 11, and for the first few months I didn't have a tape recorder, so each time I had to type the programs in from scratch. It was good practice, both for typing and learning Basic :) And today I took it out again and realized th...
