  1. Hi guys! This is Paulo, I'm the author of https://javatari.org, some of you already know the project. It is an online Atari 2600 emulator, that runs on the browser. I would like to hear your opinions/thoughts/ideas about this: Recently, I've been thinking of contacting Atari or maybe Activision (or some others) directly, to kind of present/offer Javatari to them. I imagine that being capable of easily putting content on line would be of great value for them... They still own much of the games! They could be offering the games to be played online on their websites, or use this as part of a marketing thing, even monetize on the games somehow... They could be surfing this "retro" wave using Javatari, engaging the community, etc... I guess that a lot of people that are not techy enough to find roms and run emulators by themselves would love to simply go to Atari's website and play their old loved games. I made the emulator, but I don't know very much about this whole community, and I don't participate in it very much, not even close to many of you guys around here! What you guys think about this? Any ideas or considerations? Thank you very much! Paulo
  2. Hello! Soon WebMSX and Javatari will be upgraded to HTTPS. This will make old SaveStates stored on the browser inaccessible. If you have any saves that you want to keep, please go and save them to a file on your computer before the upgrade, so you can restore them later. Thanks!

  4. No, just update the js file and everything should work fine. EDIT: I forgot you are linking to my site, not hosting yourself... So nothing has to be done! :-) But there is the new option I promised you of changing the background color of the page! Its in the docs, but I'll explain to you how to use it via email, ok? Paulo

  7. Yes, more or less... I started mine for the challenge of implementing my own emulator, to create an online and multiplatform alternative, and also because I wanted do learn JS. After the VCS, I had an MSX computer where I learned to code. Very very nice machine, most common in Europe and Japan and not so much in the USA. So I also did http://webmsx.org. Regards
  8. Yes, completely. Although we started them having more or less the same motivations in mind!
  9. Hello. Javatari has better support on Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Works also on Chrome/Firefox on Android, and Chrome/Safari on iPhone and iPad. I have not done tests on other browsers, which may offer limited support for the latest Javascript APIs needed. Chrome is the preferred browser. Paulo
  10. Hello DirtyHairy. Nice project! Have you heard about Javatari? http://javatari.org Paulo
  11. There is no use to download the source code unless you are willing to build the project. Running the Java version is as easy as going to the correct page and using it on your browser, or downloading the executable JAR file from the same page and running it with a double-click... Provided that you have Java on your machine. But you see, that is the problem with the Java version. It was easier some years ago, but nowadays the browsers do not enable Java Applets by default (you have to change the security settings), and people don't have Java on their machines as much as they had before. There is not much I can do to make it more user friendly. You have to know how to make Java enabled on your machine. But these days as it appears browsers do not like Java anymore, and there is an effort to make it harder to use for the average user (just like Flash). That is why I switched to Javascript, to make it more user friendly and run on more devices. I just did not implement the multiplayer feature yet, and focused first on making Javatari run on mobile devices. Its the only Atari emulator that can be used on iOS phones....
  12. There are 2 "incarnations" of Javatari. The OLD Java Applet one, and the new Javascript one. The Network Multiplayer mode was available on the OLD Java version, but is not yet implemented in the new Javascript version. You can try the Java version here: http://javatari.org/old/java/ But you must have the Java VM properly installed and enabled on you computer/browser. You can use it online in your browser, or download the standalone JAR and run it directly. No Mobile support on this version. Paulo
  13. Very strange... What phone are you using? What browser? Javatari runs best in the latest versions of Chrome and Safari. Some Browsers and some versions of Android may not be supported. Paulo
