Hi! I just picked up an Atari 410 recorder at my local fleamarket. I
cannot seem to get it to work. The rewind button works, but not the
fast-forward or the play button. Any ideas!!
I'm not sure if my player is screwy or if they are all like that and does
the 1010 recorder also act this way?

It only plays when the "motor-on" pin on the sio connector is enabled (+5VDC). Any load instruction on the Atari 8-Bit (LOAD "C:"Quote:> The 410 I have doesn't work on its own (no playing) but it does work when

It's the PIA in the Atari which controls this line (PACTL at $D302)
Disable bit 3 to start the cassette motor, enable that bit to stop.

I have some questions (again....yeah I know it's getting old)
about various things. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
1) I need to get a telecommunications software package for my
mega2. I want something that will do terminal emulation,
file transfer, maybe automatic dialing etc. I keep hearing
about a program called Flash. Is this program any good
or would you recommend something else ?
2) I have a mega2 st that I just got a few weeks ago. I also ahve
Mark Williams C. Is there a way to find out what version of
Tos is in my Mega ?
3) I have been trying to learn about programming GEM applications.
I have the MWC documentation and the Balma Fittler book on GEM.
I have a little experience with C (I'm learning) and I've never
written any software using any windowing system.
I'm confused.....I have a program that hopefully will display
a window on the screen. I have been able to get the window to
appear and look for me to hit the 'close' box. I notice that
I have to apparently trap the cursor movement to the sliders,
bar at the top(to move the window), or the shrinkbox thingy.
I have my program setup using evnt_mesag() to wait for these
but I don't know what to do when I get one of them.
I see all sorts of stuff in the books from wind_x functions,
to graf_x functions to vdi_x functions. I can't figure out
when to use what.
Is there a book that will tell me step by step what needs to
be done to write a very simple GEM application?
4) What is the relationship between a window and a workstation in
5) How do you make a GEM program display data in one (or more) of
the windows/workstations you've created ?
(see I told you I was confused....! :-) )
