Forgive me for dredging up something that has probably been asked a million times already, but I have now spent several hours digging through the forum, and the heat in my retro room has become so unbearable, that I need to vacate to a cooler room!

I have a simple question: Where are the links to the MyIDE+Flash updates please?

Since moving house, I am lucky enough to have a retro space, and I'm digging out my old 8 bit Ataris, and the firmware on my MyIDE+Flash is 03-Feb-06.

I'm guessing a later version exists, and can be flashed via an ATR image on my 800XL with via APE and my SIO2PC adapter, but I am damned if I can find any links here to any firmware.

Please can somebody point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance.

So, a bit more digging after cooling down, and I got to this page: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=357

I'll give it a whirl and report back.

There are also 2 newer firmwares called 4.9.xx

-05, the last release:
viewtopic.php?p=7346#p7346
and
-0A, the last beta:
viewtopic.php?p=9043#p9043
Important note:
The -0A version from the download is already crced, so you can add it as-is (packed bios) to your cartridge.

I suggest you try the -0A version, that seems the best version among all.

After these, I'm switched to MyIDE-][ completely.

Thanks Mr A, I will visit those links and download.

Since I have SIO2PC and APE set up, I may just stick with the MyIDE 1, as the Atari is sat next to the PC running APE, though you never know since I have several 8 Bits to play with.

Thanks for your continued devotion to the Atari 8Bit :-)

Mr A

Quick question, is there an ATR image for flashing the 0A version at all?

The ATR image I downloaded of 3.5 installed no bother at all, and doing it over SIO2PC was simple, but I don't own a MaxFlash adapter at present, and I'm a little reluctant to spend nearly $70 for something I won't use much beyond this one flash.

If not I'll look to use the 05 version, thanks.

No, but you can create your own flasher ATR with the ATARIMAX-studio.
Just create a flash content to your liking, add the MyBIOS-FE.ROM as packed BIOS.
Then export ATR and use that.
Easy, not?

:-)

Later,
Sijmen.

Thanks for the assistance Sijmen, I really appreciate it.

I just created an ATR and tested with Altirra and it boots fine and detects the 'Cartridge' installed, though for obvious reasons, it won't flash!

I'll try it on the real thing at a sensible time of day, as I need to go to sleep now as back to work in the morning.

If it works, I will upload the ATR here for others to use if you have no objections.

Regards

Jon

Hi Sijmen

So I flashed using the ATR I created, is it correct that the cart will now boot to a menu from where I can select My-IDE? Looking at other workbooks on the forum, this seems to be correct, but I would like to verify please.

I did only add the packed ROM though, should I have also loaded another game ROM or two with it to make MY-IDE auto start as per version 3.5, or I have I hit the right note with what I've done?

Thanks for all your guidance on this, I appreciate the help.

If I've done the correctly, then I will upload the ATR images for both the 05 and 0A versions.

Yep, you are spot on.

You have 88k left, so let yourself go.
I normally put on some favorite games (xex or 8k roms), assembler, basic rev-c, altirra basic.

When you want to use the MyBIOS, yes you have to select it from the menu.
Afterwards, you can always go back with SHIFT and select a language-rom from your menu.

Enjoy,
Sijmen.
