Yes, the Super SpartaDOS X cartridge that used to be sold through bitsofthepast's online shop, has now transitioned over to a product, now available on the COREi64.com site.
Anyone that's been around the Atari scene knows of the products that were available on the bitsofthepast online shop. I myself purchased numerous things from that shop over the years. I'm honored to have been given the opportunity to continue to build these for the Atari community, and wholeheartedly thank the owner of this cartridge project this opportunity.
It should be noted and recognized that this project belongs to Dropcheck w/ Panos & tf_hh playing a huge role in the development. It is produced and offered here with her express permission to do so.
The completed and tested cartridges are produced on Enig (gold plated 4 layer PCBs) and assembled using modern SMD soldering techniques. The entire board, save for the battery holder and cartridge connector are processed using a solder paste stencil printer and commercial quality reflow oven. As such, you will find the solder connections clean and professionally completed. A specially designed jig has been developed by COREi64 to ensure the cartridge connection on the end of the SpartaDOS is perfectly installed, aligned and true.
The cartridges are furthermore rigorously tested before being considered available for sale. When you see a cartridge for sale on the shop, rest assured the cartridge has already been built and tested, ready for shipment.
If you arrive at this item and are informed by the shop that there are none in stock, please contact me through the contact link at the top of the page, and I'll be able to give you an ETA on when the next batch will be created and available for sale. If that happens, I'll be happy to put your name on a wait list and when available, sell you one directly so that you don't miss out.
As an option when purchasing, you may choose to add a cartridge shell for this cartridge that I specifically designed for this board. Available colors are listed. If you choose to purchase the cartridge with the cartridge case, you will receive TWO cartridge caps (those are the covers over the cartridge connector, with the two protruding tabs). These tabs are quite resilient, however, they are plastic afterall, and plastic can break. This is why I include a second cap, just in case you break the tab off of one of them.
You will need to supply your own CR2032 battery. I do not include the battery due to shipping regulations regarding the shipment of batteries and the complications that can arise. They are commonly found, and you should have no problem sourcing a battery for this cartridge.
Should you choose to purchase this cartridge with the cartridge case, it will come with the hex key tool you need to be able to open it up when you're ready to install the battery.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me through the Contact page on this site, located at the top of the page.
