[vcf-midatlantic] Atari XE game system

Thanks for the feedback regarding cleaning cartridges - that is often an
issue but I do not think the games are the problem in this instance since
they work on my Atari 800XL.

My understanding is the XE is supposed to boot to Galaxian as a built-in
game and if the keyboard is attached it should automatically boot and let
you choose between BASIC and Galaxian.  Can anyone confirm if this is
true?  I have no previous experience with the XE so this is all based on
what I read online so far.

Can anyone provide insight into what is special about the Star Raiders
cartridge since from what I have seen online there is something about it
that lets it boot when other games won't.
