Hallo werte ATARI-Gemeinde...


es ist vollbracht und wir gehen in die zweite Runde. Das PRO© ATARI - Ausgabe 2 ist in deutsch AB SOFORT erhältlich. Die englische Übersetzung wird noch ein paar Tage dauern - ich werde Euch auf dem laufenden halten. Und wieder präsentieren wir auf 32 schicken DinA5-Seiten wieder reichlich um und mit den Atari XL/XE:


Mit der ersten Ausgabe konnten wir weltweite Reaktionen hervorrufen und entsprechend ebenfalls Beiträge, wodurch das Heft abwechslungsreicher geworden ist. Ebenfalls wurde versucht, die Kritik der ersten Ausgabe, was Schriftbild/größe angeht umzusetzen. Beginnen wir die Reise durch das Heft:

KAZ hat sich mit seiner schönen Pixelkunst für das Cover wieder selbst übertroffen, ein herrlicher Anblick in 8bit. Und inhaltstechnisch könnt Ihr Euch auf folgendes freuen:


Atari VCS 2600: Wie Alles Begann, Zeppelin Games: Top-10 Countdown, Bundesliga für Alle: Die ABBUC Bundesliga, Oldie: Koronis Rift, The Making Of: Panther, Scenetastics! - Demo Scene News & Reports, Hacking A Hacker #1: der Anfang, Hacking A Hacker #2: Tips/Tricks/Lösung, ABBUC-Shop: Analog Ausgabe 1, Meeting: NOMAM & Basic-Tenliners Contest, Meeting: Homecomputer-Show 2K14 in Hilversulm, PRO© ATARI Mailorder, Atari-Musik-Kassetten von Poison, PRO© ATARI Heftdiskette und den AtariAge Highscore-Club

ABBUC members will get this calender year the issues for free.


Than I need to make the decission if enough tips (spends) come in to cover the costs for these units.

I do not sadly think ABBUC will finance one issue a year in total for the members.

But you can offer it, so it is maybe a point on the JHV.

Because if this happens positive and there are some tips (spends) it will continue the shipment for ABBUC users...

Yes, the original by KAZ was (as our graphic mode do it regulary) b/w

But Frank did put color into it like a DLI.

Looks GREAT! Love It!

Didn't remember Kolony 2106... yes that picture was familiar to me but didn't remember from where.

But that picture isn't the original 2106:



Any chance of you ask Kaz to send me or you post here your magazine in real pixels GR.8?

It's is 5 euros in price with delivery outside of Germany.

8bit(at)proc-atari.de is the email address to use for paying via PayPal. You can also message PowerSoft above and he will sort out a magazine for you.


If you're after the English version, this will be available soon. I'm translating it....

There is now a video overview (like how 'Retro Gamer' do it) which you can view here:

It's great to see these overview videos, I always check out the Retro Gamer one when Darran uploads it. The Zeppelin Games article in this issue would be an interesting read.

Good news everybody. I think I am finished now with the translation of Issue 2 into English.


Please allow Markus a short while just to sort out the layouts of the text and to get some prints done.


I hope that you love the 2nd issue, just as much as the German speakers have loved the 2nd issue.

I see a small and funny translation error here:


- Bundesliga for All: Die Abbuc Gaming League


should be Bundesliga for All: The Abbuc Gaming League.


Or do you want the Abbuc Gaming League to die ?!? :grin:

(der, die, das are the german equivalents of the english word "the")

Thank you for your kind words Markus.


For everyone else, I have to say in my honest opinion, this magazine is great and is getting better. With time I'm sure that it will be better and better as we all learn to do what we do better.


For me, the best article is that of the "The Making of: Panther" which for me was very interesting. Panther is a very good game in my opinion too.


And if you think I am saying this because I work on the magazine, please be aware that I do not receive a single penny (or cent) for doing this. It is all out of love for the Atari.

The whole project is just for our first love ... !!!


I think everyone can calculate a selling price of Euro 1,50 (plus postage) do not cover the costs, even if PayPal fee's will be deducted...


But there will be some great projects coming up...

Please support them to save the magazine!


As soon as things are available, I will post it here...


Now join the new ISSUE ... !!!

Thank you for spotting this :) I'm sure if it isn't too late that Markus will look at correcting this.


And I'm sure that nobody wants anything to die in the Atari community! :)

@Steve and CharlieChaplin:

In the directory of the magazine it will be written like Steve translated it.

Here in the forums I thought it reads more well this way I done...

Well... Markus - you suck ;-)

Never change matters Steve translates!

- Yes I will do not again in future ;-)


Cheers mates
