New 2XL tapes
« on: April 21, 2011, 02:00:58 AM »
Hello. I am a long time fan of 2XL and was cruising around the internet to see if there was a 2XL simulator which brought me to your website. I happen to have 6 2XL tapes from the 90's version of 2XL that are not loaded in your simulator. I have no problem converting them to digital format. I will post again when I have an update. Also, should I use the 2XL to record the tracks or should I use a tape player? Here is the list of my tapes:
*World of Animals
*Sports World
*Trivia Time
*Stars and Planets
*Amazing World's Records
*Monsters, Myths & Dinosaurs
Later, and thanks for keeping such a great toy alive.

Welcome to the site jb!
Great to have another 2-xl fan here :)

I wrote some instructions on how to digitize the tapes, which you can find here: http://www.donationc...L/cartinstructs.html

Have these ever been added to the source project of 2-XL?  I know I have the SUPER HEROES & COMIC CALVALCADE now & someone today just e-mailed me about some tapes he will send to me to have added into what Mouser has already.

But were these 6 done the JD has?

Sorry I have never gotten around to ripping these tapes. I still have them though. I assume that the 4 tracks come from left channel side a, right channel side a, left channel side b, and right channel side b, correct? so if then if i rip the tapes normally and break the 2 sides into 4 tracks then they'll be able to be used in the project correct?
