  1. Hi Gury. Thanks for this interesting program but still I don't understand exactly what to do. For example, on my Windows pc there is a file named photo.jpg. How can I port it to an .atr disk image?
  2. Perhaps a stupid question: how can I trasfer a .jpg image from my PC to an .atr file?
  3. I was just going to write a post asking you to change the movement "character" routine. I think the high level of your game, including graphics, deserve a movement like the one found in Gremlins and in other games.
  4. Very beautiful, in particular the transparent bricks! I have a lot of grey bricks, but to use them I have to destroy my Lego Millennium Falcon!
  5. I've just received, from ebay, two t-shirts that clearly show my preferred 8-bit!
  6. Amiga 500 (OS 1.3) and 2000 (OS 1.3) are 100% compatible. On the newer models, 600, 3000, 1200 and 4000, some programs (in particular games that use "forbidden features") have problems because the OS and the cpu changes. What I want to say is that *now* an Amiga 1200 with only a memory expansion, an hard disk/cf card and a program called WHDLOAD can load all Amiga games. In my experience for the serious programs there are no problems because most of them have been updated.
  7. Amiga 500 and 2000 are 100% compatible. But if you want an Amiga I suggest to take a 1200; it is near 100% compatible, has better graphics (AGA) and OSs (3.1, 3.5, 3.9), a faster processor (68020), you can upgrade processor and expand memory, with OS 3.9 you can surf the web even wireless using the pcmcia port, you can mount an hard disk internally (I use a compact flash with a ide/cf adapter), etc.
  8. Commodore 64 has been released 3 years after Atari 800 (XL and XE are similar to the original 800) so I think it's normal that C64 hardware is more powerful.
  9. I have read all the interesting posts regarding this project from the beginning and now I only want to say that you, programmer and designers, are doing a great job!
  10. The first pre-order phase has ended and around 70 SIO2USB interfaces has been pre-ordered. Now the second pre-order phase is started (shipping starting in december). http://home.arcor.de/grasel/sio2usb_e.htm
  11. FrodoDs.nds file must be in the root dir. rd folder (containing the 4 roms and .d64 disks) must be in the root dir. Then you click on FrodoDS.nds, you select rd and then the .d64 disk in the black load screen that appears, you press the R button and the first program on .d64 disk will start.
  12. Go to this thread: http://www.atariage.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=109615
  13. Lemmings doesn't need to be patched. I attach a patched version of Frodo that works with R4. FrodoDs.zip
  14. I use Atari DOS 2.5. Which is the best file copier? Perhaps ACommander 1.6?
  15. I have received my R4 Revolution on Thusday so I haven't had the time to test it with many homebrews. ScummVM works perfectly only doing a drag and drop of the files. I'm not sure but I think that Lemmings, the C64 emulator Frodo and other homebrews needs to be patched with the program and files of this PAGE.
  16. If we want an Atari 800 emulator for DS perhaps you should register then post something in this thread http://www.dcemu.co.uk/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=67313 in the forum of the author of the wonderful emulator of Commodore 64 for DS.

  18. To use USB flash drives you have to use this device: http://home.arcor.de/grasel/sio2usb_e.htm
  19. The SIO2USB Interface is a peripheral device that can be attached to an ATARI 8-bit computer using the SIO-Bus. It emulates one or more ATARI floppy drive(s) and does not require any special drivers or operating-systems; it is fully compatible with all ATARI DOS systems and extensions. Because the device is connected to the SIO-Bus, it is not necessary to open or modify the ATARI. The device is powered by the SIO-Bus and does not need an external power adapter. The data are stored on standard USB mass storage devices (USB FLASH Drives) as ATARI-Imagefiles (ATR or XFD) on a standard FAT file system. By using the internal Real-Time Clock, each modification (write access from the ATARI) on the Imagefile will update the current date and time information on the Imagefile. This permits one to fine the most recently changed Imagesfile under the same name in the file system. Dates and times are also available for the ATARI and can be used by proprietary programs or by ATARI DOS systems that support date and time (e.g. Sparta DOS etc). Creation, selection and deletion of Imagefiles can be done either by using the built-in keys on the device and the LC-Display or by using a configuration program (included in the distribution package) from the ATARI. It is NOT necessary to own or run a PC or Mac to operate the SIO2USB Interface. All necessary operations can be done either at the device itself or from the ATARI. As an alternative, a PC or Mac can be used to exchange Imagefiles from/to the USB FLASH Drive or to create backup copies. The internal SIO2USB Software (Firmware) can be updated by the user from within the ATARI without a PC or Mac. We will publish Imagefiles for Firmware updates on the SIO2USB Website which can be downloaded and copied to the USB FLASH Drive or sent on an ATARI 5 1/4" disk. The Firmware update is done from within the ATARI WITHOUT any special programming device or additional personal computer. The SIO2USB-Interface allows you to operate an ATARI computer with virtual floppy drive(s) without using a REAL floppy drive or any PC with SIO2PC software and interface. Therefore it is a light-weight alternative for real floppy drives or SIO2PC + PC/MAC combination. In addition, other SIO devices (real floppies, SIO2PC, tape-drive or printer) can be used with SIO2USB together at the same time on the SIO-Bus. I've preordered this interesting device in this site: http://home.arcor.de/grasel/sio2usb_e.htm
  20. How would it emulate the keyboard? I downloaded a C64 one for my Dreamcast and I can't make most games do anything even with the keyboard thing that pops up. Oh well, it runs Jupiter Lander fine and that's really the only game I can remember playing for my old Vic-20 back in the day. Although I need to brush up on how to play the game, even if I land on Jupiter softly, I still blow up! The Atari800 emulator works perfectly on a GP32X, as you can see inthis video: The keyboard isn't a problem for the Nintendo DS touch screen, as you can see in this video of the C64 emulator: http://youtube.com/watch?v=cqjzpEbWZH4 So... I want an Atari800 emulator port for the Nintendo DS!
  21. Only a card like this one: http://www.r4ds.com/product-en.htm
  22. We (Atarian users of Nintendo DS) deserve an Atari 800 emulator (there is already a C64 emulator). Nobody is able to do a port of Atari800?
  23. http://youtube.com/watch?v=cqjzpEbWZH4 Here is a video of the C64 DS emulator. I like the lower touchscreen keyboard. I know that GP32X's emulations are better but there are millions of DS in the world that can run homebrew software with just a cheap flash card like R4. No one in the world is interested in a DS porting of Atari 800 emulator (very good on GP32X)?
  24. I too would like an Atari 8 bit emulator for Nintendo DS. There is a Commodore 64 emulator! We too deserve to have our computer emulated!
