    I’m after a Side2 cart if anyone has one spare or an Uno Cart...

    Basically any mass storage cart would be of interest but preferably a Side2.

    That's my Atari classic cart collection.

    I don't use em all and I can't remember when I last faffed with 2 of em so clearly I've a little leeway when it comes to letting 1-2 go, mate.

    Just drop me a PM and we'll sort something, Richie.

    Cheers.

    The uno cart is really good Richie. I've also got an Sdrive Max if you want to sort something out when it comes to doing the 6128 deal.

    Yeah Allen, the UNO is good for anything <= 128KB something like the AVG could run files over 128KB like the Bad Apple Demo so that’s why I’m interested in The!Cart as well :)

    The Side 3 cart is out now too, and I hear it has a ton more features to it than Side 2, more like AVG or The!Cart. I have The!Cart and love it. Between it, one 8Mb Atarimax and MyIDE II which has tons of it's own unique features, I feel no need for anything else. I of course also have Incognito which basically has a built-in Side 2 as well. But unless you have an U1MB, I'd recommend either The!Cart or MyIDE II instead of Side 2. Side 3 may be good on it's own without U1MB, I don't know.

    Of course I can't say anything about AVG or Uno as I don't own them and have no idea about them really, beyond comparison charts.

    Yeah I am talking to Andy about his The!Cart and have ordered a FujiNet from The Brewing Academy which hopefully will negotiate customs okay and arrive in a couple of weeks.

    I know Andy had a Maxflash cart as well but you really need the programmer I’m led to understand.

    The programmer is great, yes, I have one, and it can actually also program many other non-Atarimax stuff too. But, I'm pretty sure you don't need it, you can program it with Maxflash studio through an SIO2PC as well.
    But The!Cart is enough, the Maxflash is obsoleted by it, and The!Cart is 100% compatible with Maxflash cart. I probably would not have gotten the Maxflash if I had gotten The!Cart first. However, I definitely would still have gotten the Programmer, it's an essential tool, to me, that make programming lots of stuff easier.

    The!Cart should fill most if not all your needs though, a fantastic piece of kit!
