One of the things I’ve been interested in for the last year or so, is developing for the Atari family of 8-bit computers. I haven’t done a lot yet, but I’ve been slowly getting software, docs, and hardware to start writing code with all the tools I could possibly need.
I had already built a SIO2Arduino, and that allows me to emulate a disk drive that I can use to load the dev tools I need. Its biggest problem, however, is that it only allows you to mount one disk drive at a time. If I wanted to have any form of operating system, dev tools and my own project files, I would need to create a custom Frankenstein disk image with everything inside.
A more elegant solution, of course, would be to use something that’d allow me to emulate several drives at once. That device already exists, and it’s called SDrive-Max.Read More
