Do I need to buy new carts just to have the recent firmware? I've emailed, even from different stresses on different domains in case it was going to spam. I've gotten updates via email before, but nothing in a couple years now, no replies at all.

I need to update the 5200 and Coleco carts. Is ordering new ones the only way now?

Surely not. No idea what is going wrong.

I have uploaded a coleco firmware some time ago.

From a friends cartridge

I can do my 5200, but that is old (many years) already.

You can phone or contact steve, or drop a message on facebook.

I only check the other forums for updates and mainly manage the MyIDE section.

Steve, just saw this post, life took me away for a bit. I checked and definitely don't have any emails containing 'atarimax', your name, or your email address since an update you sent me in 2019. I'll try emailing the above address like you suggested. I checked my yahoo and both gmail accounts that I use, as I think I tried different ones in case one was going to spam. I'm gonna try from my Yahoo to start with! Oddly, I got a notification email for the other reply above but not yours as well.

Still no replies from Steve about firmware any email address I've tried - I'm really thinking that buying new ones is going to be the only way to get updated firmware.
I've been trying for years now, checking spam, from 3 different email addresses - yahoo, gmail, and my comany work email. I've waited a few months between attempts to avoid being annoying, but I'm about ready to throw in the towel on getting in touch here. I haven't deleted any emails and searching my inbox shows nothing has come to any of the three. I've also emailed both the ipad address and the main one from all 3.

Steve, if there is another way I could get in touch with you (twitter, facebook, etc.) outside of email, please let me know, as email hasn't worked out, and I haven't missed emails from anyone else on these inboxes - at worst they go to spam. I really appreciate you making these available and releasing updates, but after this long, if I don't figure it out soon, I'll just buy new ones to get the updated firmware, though I feel like something is wrong with the communication here, and we can probably sort it out. I don't mean to come across as angry or anything, I'm thankful these exist, just very confused and wanting to use your updates on my carts!

Thanks, I'll have to give it a try. I haven't had a FB account for years. I'll see if my partner can reach out about our carts from theirs. I usually handle all the upkeep etc., they just play em! I'll report back if I have any luck (or a long time without!).

You need to be (very) patience.
Steve is a very busy guy, working in hospital and often away.
Even I (MyIDE inventor and moderator) have to wait for his reply.
I know that it works like this, so I don't mind, but for customers/service, I agree this is a bit of a pita....
Remember that he still does this out of love for the Atari systems.

Grtz,
Sijmen.
