Here's a nifty deal, originally posted on Twitter by the professional penny pinchers at CheapAssGamer. For the next week, Bundle Stars is selling the Atari Vault collection for just $3.99, a steep discount from its usual ten dollar price tag. The collection includes nearly twenty of Atari's biggest arcade hits, along with dozens of Atari 2600 titles. Many of these games have found their way to past Atari collections, but this is a convenient way for newcomers to acquaint themselves with the company's massive library, and an inexpensive reintroduction for seasoned joystick jockeys. Note that you'll need a Steam account to take advantage of this offer.

This is a really good deal. I was pleased with all the display and control options and the emulation (especially for the arcade games) seemed pretty spot-on.

Does anyone know how to get this to recognize a stelladaptor usb controller?  It wont recognize my 'controller' and I have to use the keyboard controls.

You're probably going to have to use X360CE... there's more info about that here.

It gives legacy controllers XInput compatibility. Would have been better if the games just worked with older controllers, but Microsoft decided otherwise.

The steam controller works very well with this collection. There are separate profiles created for each game. For example, trackball controls for Tempest and Missile Command.

I even bought a woodgrain VCS skin for my steam controller to add to the experience, which I bought from here:

I went there this morning and it said $9.99.  Sadly most of the selections are all 2600 games I would never play.

I haven't tried the 2600-daptor, but my Logitech Gamepad F310 works fine.

This is an intersting piece of software but Im not 100% sure Im using it correctly.  It seems I start the software and map - but hten it says to exit the software?  The Atari Collection doesnt recognize the Stelladaptor still.

I don't remember how to set it up, to be honest. You'll need a tutorial, and I managed to find a few.

It's not guaranteed to work with the Stelladapter, but it's worth a shot if it won't work without it.

steam detects the 2600-adapter, but I don't know how to set up my joystick. Steam looks super cool, though.
