Hi all,

I need a flashcart .atr image of the Atari OS-B translator or .mcw file so I can program my flashcart to use as a translator to load old software off disk/sio2sd, can anybody help please? I have found translator .atr files on various sites but when I try to program the cartridge it fails and says 'missing signature'

Thanks in advance!
Dom

It's not likely any of the translator disks will work from cart without some custom programming. The first thing they do is turn off the OS so they can replace it, which probably nukes the cartridge loader.

I used to sell a 'Instant Translator' cartridge based on the 1mbit flash cart. I believe it was a custom modified version of one of the Atari PD translator modules adapted to run from ROM.

If you have a 1mbit flash cart drop me an e-mail at classics@atarimax.com and I'll see if I can locate the programming image.
