To connect the 3D glasses to an atari should be no problem. All that
would be needed is a joystick cable and a stereo jack. Connect 3 wires
(2 output lines and a ground), then set up porta to have 2 outpur lines.
But now is when the fun begins.. You will need more than just this to
see in 3d. You will need to create TWO screens, and a DLI that will
flip between them. It would also have to keep track of which eye is
can see the screen and keep this in line with which screen is being
shown.. This means that now you've got to dedicate 16K to the screen..
About the XF551 drive.. does this ADOS thing exist, or is atari
still shipping dos2.5 with it?? One question I have about this drive
is what will it do if you put a older double sided (cut the notch type)
disk in it?? If you try to write to the disk, will it think it is ok
to write to the back of the disk,or think the whole back side is bad
(because the data is comming off the disk backwards..)?? Also I
remember atari saying that the i/o speed of this drive is faster (2.9x)
than the older drives. Does this work in the sam way as the us doubler?
(I have 2 usd 1050's) what is the best dos to use with th xf551??
