15 bonuses -  5 musics - 15 graphics - 13 intros - 6 demos - 4 games - 2 wilds

This pack contains a disk image in MyDos format with all Atari 8-bit releases of SillyVenture 2k18. I felt they deserve a good presentation, especially the graphics and music releases for which no art pack/music disk exists.

This pack comes with results viewer which also acts as a menu from where you can directly start all releases and read the readmes.

The menu remains memory resident, so you don’t have to load it again every time. This makes watching the graphics entries and listening to the music entries much more fun, especially on the real machine.
If you use loadable speeders, you have to use the memory area $500-$5ff.
For “SIO2SD TURBO” for example press “OPTION+START” at the boot screen.

Ultimate Atari Video (UAV) available again.

For a while now it has been near impossible to get a UAV, the best svideo update for the Atari 8bit range. Bryan the guy who designed it has been dealing with real life and fun things like video upgrades have taken a back seat.

Well the good news is that MacRorie at the Brewing Academy has made a deal with Bryan and taken over production of the boards. There will now (well… after Chinese new year) be a place to get these awesome boards.

Head on over to the Brewing Academy website for more info.
