Gip-Gip Posted November 26, 2021 Share Posted November 26, 2021 Hey all! Long time no see! I'm doing atari repairs on the side of my current job/future college and I want a stress test cart for making sure they all work as intended So far I have some ram test code laid out, along with some TIA test code in mind, and I'm wondering what ideas you guys have for testing the 2600 to make sure it's in 100% working order I'll have the source code up when I have it in a good state, per usual, and I'll try my best to keep it semi well-documented. Granted, it's hard to make good looking assembler, but I will at least try my hardest to make it half readable Plus, it's been a solid year or two since I've worked with assembler, so forgive me if it isn't the best code you've ever seen Currently my list of tests include: RAM test, write both $FF and $00 to each byte in ram TIA test, set background color to each possible tia color in a rainbow fashion Sound test, cycle through sounds per frame Please give me other stress ideas, what other common failure points there are, etc. etc. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
