Hi, I'm looking for a .atr of Eastern Front.  I've checked the usually
sites and haven't been able to find one (unless I overlooked it by
accident).

Any help would be appreciated.

Marty

I thought I remembered it being a cartridge... so it should be a ROM image or
binary file unless you got the older APX version.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Eastern Front *was* a cartridge...it also came as a cassette program.
I had some friends circa 1981 that bought the cassette version to play
on their 16k Atari 400...

Hi Guys,
    Well al little update on the 130xe.  I've not had time to check the
chips out as of yet but I have tried the keyboard option and nothing.  No
responses at all from the keyboard start keys etc.  I've checked the
keyboard connector and it seems ok but I've not had a good rumage around.
Hopefully an update is due tomorrow :->

Thanks for all the advice todate regardless.

Richard

Hi Guys,
    Ok some more information on the XE problem.  I've noticed that the power
light on the keyboard isn't on
when I turn the unit on.  It seems to me that either the keyboard connector
or the keyboard it'self which is dead.  Does anyone have any other
suggestions to how this can be resolved or should I give up and get another
from E-Bay :->

Cheers,
    Richard

When you turn on the XE, does the TV picture go blank?  If you still have
static, then its probably a dead power supply(fuse).

Hi Rick,
    Well I do get the "Rom Test" picture and that's it.  It just loops
around doing the
test so I don't think it's the supply.  I suspect it's the keyboard
connector that's gone a
little kaka!

Regards,
    Richard

you might be right, but amaurote is not typical bad stuff, which was
produced between 1982-1985. Thinking of Parker Brothers or Engish
Software!!

By the way, have a look at

I see Tutankham made that list.  Was it sold in Europe as a cart or disk?  It
was not sold in the US, except a version sold by Antic as King Tut's Tomb, but
I don't think that was the same game.
