Disabling Atari BASIC
I recently purchased an Atari 800XL and some programs for it. One of the programs, Micro League Baseball, doesn't work because of the built-in BASIC. Is there an easy way to disable the computer's built-in BASIC temporarily?

Chris Greatens

To disable the built-in BASIC on an Atari 600XL, 800XL, or XE, hold down the OPTION key when turning on the computer. On an Atari 400, 800, or 1200XL, simply unplug the BASIC cartridge.
