Hello from France !

Post by Sturm » Fri May 15, 2020 6:13 pm

Hi, i'm 46 yo, from France. Got a 520 STF in 1988, awesome machine ! Sold it in 1991 to buy an Amiga 500+ (big mistake) and moved to Nintendo 64 and PC in 1997.

About 6 years ago, i felt the urge to own those old machines again. I then bought an Amiga 1200, and a 520 STE.

I'm really happy with them, i use the Atari way more than the Amiga, maybe because i have more memories with that machine.

Quick question :
Just received a diag cart from Exxos shop, and would like to be sure not to do something wrong. How should i plug it in the port? With the chips at the bottom ?

Thank you !

Plug the cart in with the chips facing upwards so you can see them.

my diag cart must be used with rom below and the led up to be seen as explained on the video.
It depends on the model.
