Hey there guys and gals.
I'm a long time console gamer but over the last month or so I've been reading up on Atari 8-Bit computers to see what their game library is like and how to use the hardware. I'm not too sharp when it comes to computers most of the time (there's a reason I've always stuck to consoles for gaming lol) but I think I get the gist of how to use most of the gaming related hardware for Atari 8-Bit computers.
I understand that games either come on cartridges or 5.25" floppy disks, and that you can use a SIO2SD to put the game files for floppy disk games on an SD card and run them off that if you want access to the full library of floppy disk games.
What I'm still confused about and haven't been able to wrap my head around though is if there is a simple and easy to use flash cart for playing cartridge based games. I love the Harmony Encore and EverDrive flash carts that I have for my consoles because they're so simple to use: Just use a modern computer to drag and drop the files for the games you want to play into a folder on an SD card, stick the SD card in the cartridge, then pop the cartridge into your console and you're presented with a clean and easy to navigate menu for selecting the game you want to play when you turn the system on.
Are there any straightforward and easy to use flash carts like the Harmony or EverDrives available for Atari 8-Bit computers? Everything I've found on AtariMax just left me scratching my head trying to figure out how to use it, so I was wondering if there are any simple idiot-proof options out there for A8 gaming flash cartridges?
