Carts are programmable in-system in your Atari and do not require and eprom or
flash programmer.

Sign up for the forum, there are hundreds of pre-made images there to burn on
flash carts, plus
a complete open source dev kit to roll your own if you desire.

Oh,
come on, they are not that expensive !! And if you want to spare some
money (lets say on porto and package), why not join with others for a
bigger order ? ABBUC just did that for all its members and thus got the
carts shipped to Germany really cheap...  

The original english manual is available at Steve`s homepage. A german
translation is available at ABBUC somewhere... -Andreas.

I'm from outside US too, and I calculated it to my own currency (PLN) and
its not so expensive.
I'll buy it in summer (maybe the 8mb version because I see it's not so
expensive but maybe more usefull).
But this cartridge is cool.

Have you released the source of the actual flashing module?  It would be
neat for custom project to be able to write to the cartridge.

All sources are available and recently are no longer Windows-Only
assembler dependent.

I'd rather have a Cartridge version 4.19 thru 4.22. The version isn't
real important. I could use 2 or 3 carts.

But it seems that finding just 1 is tough.

I have disk based versions of SpartaDos.

I'll check out atarisales, and keep looking...

Thanks,

When FTE first got the rights and products years ago, I did get a
upgraded SDX cart from them.

Also they sent me a printed update back in 1995 of what they had been
doing. I found this while looking through
some of my old 8-bit papers.

Several new products were announced and supposed to have been shown at a
few shows.

The Mars 8,  The MIO II, and Sweet 16 were 3 of the hardware items
mentioned in the (GET-REAL GAZETTE Vol.1 # 2)

as it was called. And from what I read, Proto types of all these were
made.

Just wondering if anyone ever saw these proto types at any Atari Shows
years ago? And if anyone has any other info
on what happen to them.

I saw some of the stuff. I think several people in the newsgroup have
the Sweet 16 board.

Off on opinion road here. The problem with the Sweet 16 was the same as
the problem for Dataque's 65816 board: In compatibility mode it does
nothing for the Atari. There just wasn't a lot of stuff that would take
advantage of the '816 features and there weren't a lot of tools other
then John Harris's MAE for working with it.

So what needed to happen was rewrites of things like the OSS cartridges
to get the tools into people's hands. Rewriting Action! BASIC XL, BASIC
XE, etcetera was/is pretty much impossible from a manpower standpoint at
that stage of the game.
