  1. How would 65c816 (e.g., Rapidus) interact with the rest of the atari. I’m sure you may have done this already. At a high level (or low level if you prefer), how is the interaction with the system. If I may expand on this, what I mean if you create a game or any type of graphical application, do you even use 6502, and other components of the atari (I’m sure you have to use some). What do you bypass if any. I sow @drac030 talking about the lda random and how slow pokey (I think he said) compared to 68c186 that would take more cycles to wait. And please, if I said anything wrong, correct me please.
  2. Hi, I hope this was not asked already. I didn’t find anything Why does the status register reserve bit 5 (unused)? what was the thinking ? maybe is internally used ?
  3. but would it work for 8 bit atari computer. I would think so. But I’m not sure.
  4. Where do I get the Atari file DIS6502?
  5. Hello, There are so many directories in PIGWA, that I haven't explored all of them. I'm listing most of them (but I removed ST/MEGA/FALCON stuff). Some of their date may be telling but I was wondering for anyone that would like to opine about some of the differences and completeness. Of course, some of them are telling, like Atari books, Atari documents, Atari magazines, etc. So far, I have been using Atari 8bit Preserved Software 2020-01-25, Homesoft, and some stuff that I downloaded from other places. I read some of them readme for some of them. I see Holmes CD has lots of stuff. There is a lot. And then there is Fugilogy, which seems to be lots of demos... I haven't even explore that. I don't think I will be able to view all this files during my lifetime. Any commentary about this would be greatly appreciated. PS: I may have left some non 8-bit directories here.

  6. @ZuluGula I translated the page. I could not find an email. I try to subscribe to AtariOnline.PL to see if that way I can send the message. Do you know the contact for this?
  7. Thanks. I will check it out. I love the ray tracing stuff you sent. I Rayspin and glass are too cool. I'm not sure what is the best setting for Altirra. I will be looking forward running this in my 1088XEL and I guess at some point when I have an Atari modded! Is the code in ASM? Thanks,
  8. Thank you so much. I will check it out today. What is TIP ? I heard that already and I'm not sure what it means.
  9. Did you use the keyboard or the joysticks to move. I will try again. All I needed to do is press A or B.
  10. Interesting demos/titles. Space Harrier is cool. If it wasn't for the trees, I would be a much better player. I remember playing this before. Maybe arcades. For sure, not in my atari, since I only had 64KB of RAM. Unless there was a version for 64 but I don't remember. I think AtariBlast is extremely cool. I wonder if the extra memory is used to store more of the sprites, background, etc.... It seems so alive. Ray Check demo is very interesting and cool. Amazing that they could do that with 320KB. The picture seems more vivid than Altirra is showing me.
  11. @MrFish Thank you for the zip file. I found that downloading all of them from Fandal is great but I don't think they were all home brews. Maybe I'm mistaken. One Game, Mr. Robot 3 it asked for a code but I was not able to do anything. This is great.
  12. @bfollowell How do you know it he all those mods ? I read the description and I didn’t see it Did the picture gave it away ?
  13. https://www.roadtovr.com/oculus-quest-2-jailbreak-suspected-fake-xrsi/ Opinions? How lock down can be an oculus 2 device that is hard to jail break? Comments ?
  14. Oh, I can see why. Great, I will use the HomeSoft Collection. Strange that both are ATR but I guess an ATR can be compressed. This is why I was hoping to find a place to download the games already with cheats LOL. I totally get it why you are opposed to it and it makes sense, but it will much easier. I never finished Mr. Robot but I was so much better. I'm stock on Level 2 now. By the way, I think Mr. Robot is such a cool game.
  15. Hi, So, I'm trying to test it with one file. Mr. Robot. I tried using the XVI32 but it is acting up (doesn't work all the time when I hit OK, etc...) I'm running Windows 10. I tried other editors. I tried searching for Infinite Lives = [C195C1D8:XXEAEAXX] C1 95 C1 D8 I can't find it. I did try to reverse the first two 95 C1 just to test. However, I know is there because in Altirra, I'm able to find it and I can display (da,dw,etc..) the values found at the location. Ideas?
  16. for 3.90: I was loading very fast (an atr image). However, one game (I think it was pinic) crashed and one of the things that the emulator suggested was to slow down the loading (or something like that). How can I enable it back? So it loads fast (but not warp speed, as that makes everything fast)
  17. Hi, I'm sure this is somewhere... Are the the ABBUC submissions (this year and previous year) from a single place ?
  18. @EddyFree Do you know if there is a place where all the images with the cheats already in place are found? Pigwa?
  19. Has anyone read: Breakout: How Atari 8-Bit Computers Defined a Generation https://www.amazon.com/Breakout-Atari-Computers-Defined-Generation/dp/0692851275/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=computer+atari&qid=1606100055&sr=8-3 Comments?
  20. @EddyFree Thank you so much for doing this. Are the files modded found somewhere already ? Pigwa?
