  1. Instead I would like an "Atari only" image for Retropie, with its own custom theme. Commodore already has one:
  2. Commodore with a new Retropie / Retroarch image, but still there isn't an Atari only image.
  3. I like to see someone else playing, more than me playing, and I don't usually play anything, but if I play is atari. The guys should record their game and then upload the video here (embedded if you don't mind). Something real... there is a guy mrkong and couple of machine-players that are unbeatable. It should be the top 30% instead of the top 3.
  4. But there is a converter from BAS to ATR: Adventurer (The).atr (For this game there is an error in both bas and atr). It's called Bas2Boot: bas2boot - BAS to ATR converter.7z https://www.atarimax.com/jindroush.atari.org/data/asoft/ It works under DosBox: it doesn't work under Windows, so it's required DosBox. First a folder must be mounted (example provided in file), an autoexec line can be added at the end to the .conf file also. Then, if there is a "No DPMI error", the file CWSDPMI.EXE (also provided) must be copied to the working folder. Then from the command line convert the .bas to .atr.

  6. Good to hear about such programs. But not always work. With Crash-Tinkle-Tinkle.bas works, with Adventurer (The).bas doesn't.
  7. An update to the PDF. Color Conversion - NTSC-PAL - Atari 8-bit.pdf

  9. I'm working on a title screen for a game, and I would like to add background music. - So far it's possible to export the .g2f to .asm. - And it's possible to export the .rtm to .asm with Raster Music Tracker. Is there a pre-made asm code for "pasting" both codes (and adding something else like exit with Start / fire button) in order to build a .xex with the picture and the music?

  11. In my last post I was referring to atari800, not RetroPie. The atari800 emulator requires the file atari800.cfg, that doesn't interact with RetroArch. Also there is no shaders, bezels, and so on, and that is one of the reasons it's deprecated by the "RetroPie image builders". A second reason why the 8-bit collection is deprecated, is because there isn't a No-Intro version updated, with all media (videos and pictures), so it's very difficult to start. Luckily it has been improved, but not in the versions of some months ago. Also could be a topic here in AtariAge for introduce RetroPie, it's features, and to build an Atari image, among the AA users. I agree, it's a nightmare in the beginning, but once everything is ready, it's easier to have all retro-systems working with 1 click, instead of individual emulators.
  12. It's basically the linux version, including its "menu", that doesn't interact with RetroArch.
  13. Some people don't understand you can have both, the traditional emulator for your OS and the libretro plugin, like now with Nintendo, Sega, Neo Geo, and Atari 2600-5200-7800-Lynx, but the only (or one of the few) platform that is not there (in around 50 different systems), is the Atari 8-bit collection, working with all the libretro features. Here is a video https://youtu.be/NoMbGFeCeMA?t=44 performing RetroPie / Recalbox as the frontend with RetroArch behind. With such video I see a lot of fun having many retro-systems working together on the same hand, and I'm quite disagree with the phrase "Things like Mednafen and Retroarch are the least fun you can have on a day". Just search RetroPie in YouTube. I have no doubt that a development is required, according to some guidelines. But it catches the attention that the Atari 8-bit is the only big system that is not being developed there. Even the C64 / Coleco are there.
