Die Software von hias in D1: und Option beim EInschalten halten. Im Detail:Manual
Important: If The!Cart does not start anymore after flashing
In very rare cases, for example when I/O errors corrupt the first few banks of The!Cart, you may not be able to enter the menus or the built-in flasher anymore from The!Cart itself. Then you have the following options:
Download latest disk version of the flasher from Atari flashing software .
Insert the "thecart.atr" from the download archive in disk drive 1.
Hold down the OPTION key during power-on. You will then either end up in the simple menu and can try from there. Or the cartridge disable itself completely and the computer will boot from disk.
If even holding down OPTION alone does not disable The!Cart and the computer hangs, try pressing RESET on the computer again.
If even this does not disable The!Cart, you need a Turbo-Freezer or similar monitor program, so you can disable The!Cart during power-on by writing the value $00 to address $D5A6. If you have a Turbo-Freezer, hold down the freezer button and power-on the computer. Enter the debugger by pressing "D" and enter "CD5A6<00". Then press RESET to let the computer boot.
If all this fails, you can try the strictly not recommended way and hot-plug The!Cart. This may damage your cartridge and you computer. First boot the flash from disk without The!Cart inserted. You are prompted to press the RESET button on The!Cart. Insert the cartridge carefully and completely. Press the RESET button on the cartridge and then press RETURN on the computer. The flasher will report if and which cartridge was detected.
You can flash the cartridge as described in the previous section. If the problem remains, try flashing again and answer the question "incremental update" with "n".
Now your The!Cart works again. If not, feel free to contacts us.
