  1. I mentioned that nice page in this thread too. If someone searches in Google "Atari graphic modes", he lands on that page. Therefore, I think some additional infos would be useful, otherwise people would think Atari max resolution is 160x192 with 5 colors... For example, Atari has overscan, therefore modes are not limited to 320x192, they can be up to 336x240 pixels. Thanks to display lists, graphics modes can be mixed together. Thanks to display list interrupts, you can have tens of colors. Mixing display modes, colors and sprites (overlapped sprites generate colors) you can have many combinations.
  2. Love that game too! High score saving is very useful, all arcade games should have it!
  3. I think I've learned how to define a language in Notepad++ (instructions). It's possible to define up to eight different keywords styles. Would you divide them? How? Here are the keywords I found, in manual's order. TIME ABS SGN RAND FRE ERR LEN VAL ASC PADDLE PMADR PTRIG STICK STRIG KEY ATN COS EXP EXP10 INT LOG LOG10 RND SIN SQR STR$ CHR$ ADR DPEEK PEEK USR GET INPUT POSITION PRINT PUT CLS DO LOOP EXEC EXIT FOR NEXT IF THEN ELIF ELSE ENDIF PROC ENDPROC REPEAT UNTIL WHILE WEND COLOR DRAWTO FCOLOR FILLTO GRAPHICS PLOT PMGRAPHICS PMHPOS SETCOLOR SOUND BGET BPUT CLOSE OPEN PRINT XIO ’ / . DATA DEC DIM END INC PAUSE DEG RAD DPOKE MOVE -MOVE MSET POKE
  4. On my PC I managed to compile and run with this command: C:\FastBasic\CC65\FB\fb-int.bat C:\FastBasic\CC65\FB\program.bas || exit /b %errorlevel% Program.bas is compiled and runs with Altirra (.bas extension is associated with Altirra on my PC). I think someone more skilled than me would be able to compile and run active program, whatever filename it has... Moreover, a FastBasic language syntax could be defined.
  5. Standard graphics mode are displayed here: http://gury.atari8.info/ref/graphics_modes.php Atari has overscan, therefore modes are not limited to 320x192, they can be up to 336x240 pixels. Thanks to display lists, graphics modes can be mixed together. Thanks to display list interrupts, you can have tens of colors. For example, this 160x212 pixels image has 101 unique colors: (tune's stereo thanks to double Pokey audio chip). Tons of colorful images are in this post and in the thread Mixing display modes, colors and sprites (overlapped sprites generate colors) you can have many combinations. You see, it's not easy to make a list of Atari graphic modes... In addition, as in other platforms, there are interlaced graphic modes.

  7. Thank you Alexey. Perhaps I was not clear. I don't mean the file selected (you can already turn on this option with CTRL+L and save it with CTRL+W), I mean all displayed files. This involves the redesign of the menu. There are two advanced solutions around: long filenames bouncing left and right to show all characters (flashjazzcat Ultimate 1 MB and Side2 firmwares), central part of filename cut to show initial and last characters and letters to show file type (AVG Cart). A simpler solution would be SIO2SD old and new designs. A solution no one has thinked about so far would be to use 80 columns, for example: At least two 80 columns drivers exists (I can upload them).
  8. Alexey, it would be nice if you could add long filenames support (all names, not only the one selected).
  9. Didn't think about your very nice ATR Tools Jay, thanks!
  10. I think LiteDOS by @mr-atari is a really nice DOS, small, fast and compatible. I would like to use it but I miss Altirra File Explorer compatibility.
  11. Sijmen, you could make an application like MakeATR. In fact I need to be able to quickly add, remove and rename files and format disk images with Windows.
  12. It would be nice if Altirra Disk Explorer would work with LiteDOS disk images.
  13. When I wrote "People more skilled than me will give you more infos" I was thinking of you Andreas...
