Claus Buchholz and Lance Ward, ACE-80
Hello. Welcome to an interview-only episode of ANTIC The Atari 8-bit Computer Podcast. I am Randy Kindig. In 1985, Claus Buchholz and Lance Ward released the ACE-80 and ACE-80XL cartridges, which gave 80-column text capability to the Atari 800 and XL computers, respectively. These were released through their newly-formed company, Amiable Computer Products. Claus also developed a 256K upgrade for the Atari 800XL and wrote an article on converting Atari computer programs to the 5200.
