Re: Installing the PAK68/3

Hang in there, you're definitely making progress. If you've ever read the (very) chaotic thread where I discussed putting my Pak board in, you'd see that I had a problem where my STacy would crash with x amount of bombs on the screen but only after it had been left turned on so many minutes. Darn ne...

Re: Installing the PAK68/3

Don't know how much it will help but here are 2 pictures of the Pak board in my STacy I'm
fairly certain that I used at least 2-3 grounds.

Re: Installing the PAK68/3

Don't forget about grounding! The manual stresses this point and I agree.

I've got something like 3 different grounds coming off the Pak board in
my STacy.

Lots of fun watching this - keep us posted and updated with pictures! :)

It's not about accepting... I actually owned a MiST unit when it came out, then sold it. Great product, great support, etc. Just not "Atari" enough for me. It obviously meets a large number of peoples needs though. Clearly. So I'm not being biased or prejudiced, people have the right to sp...
