Ultimate is one of the best ATARI 8bit internal upgrades ever, invented by Lotharek's great friend, Sebastian Bartkowicz aka Candle`o`Sin -  http://spiflash.org/ . Instalation of this upgrade takes me approx. 5 minuts and even rookie can handle it at home - without finding a professional technician and extra costs!

     It's easy, it's simple, it's FUN! Also, in the present version some fixes were applied in comparison to the initial release. Now it's 100% "safe and sound". Of course, what would be a bundle of wires without software support ?

    Dear all, it is about time to visit AtariAge / AtariArea forums, isn't it? :-)

Q: I saw a battery on the pictures of Ultimate, what is it for?
A: Ultimate has a battery backed up RTC, so your XL/XE will get a current time and date on every restart and not the year 2000 ( after settings in Sparta DOS - commands DATA, TIME) 
Q: Will Ultimate work in 600XL?
A: Yes. as long as 600XL has 64kB of RAM
Q: I have stability issues... Numen freezes...
A: Sometimes, in some setups it may happen. Making ultimates cables shorter helps.
Q: Cannot load *.ATR files with SIDE CONNECTED
A: Enter Ultimate bios and set following options. Press "S" to save config. Press and hold "L" to load from SIDE.
