  1. Welcome to Atari Dev Studio for designing homebrew games for the Atari 8-bit systems (Atari 2600 and 7800). Atari Dev Studio is a one-stop-shop for any programmer and includes a number of built-in features to allow you to design, develop and test games for your favourite system. Get started with batari Basic (2600) or 7800basic (7800) using easy to learn BASIC-like languages or go hard-core with assembly using dasm. During development test your creation using the Stella (2600) or A7800 (7800) emulators right from within Atari Dev Studio. Requirements Atari Dev Studio is an extension for Microsoft's cross-platform IDE Visual Studio Code and will run on the Windows, Linux and macOS platforms. The latest releases of batari Basic, 7800basic, dasm, Stella and A7800 are included so you can begin coding straight after installing the extension. Features Atari Dev Studio includes the following features: Develop your game on Windows, Linux or macOS Compile source code for your Atari 2600 or 7800 using batari Basic, 7800basic or dasm Use scripting (makefile, batch or shell script files) to build your dasm projects [preview] Optionally launch and test your game using the Stella (2600) or A7800 (7800) emulators Document outline support (batari basic, 7800basic, dasm) Peek/Go to Definition and Reference support (batari basic, 7800basic, dasm) Built-in Sprite Editor (also suitable for tiles and other objects) [preview] Manage your project using the File Explorer or version-control your source code directly with GitHub (and others) using the built-in features of the Visual Studio Code platform. Provide references to your own specific releases of each language or emulator rather than use the includes ones via the Settings. Additional features are planned for the future. At this time the focus is on the core functionality and ensuring full cross-platform support. Installing Atari Dev Studio What is Visual Studio Code? Visual Studio Code (VS Code) is a streamlined code editor with support for development operations like debugging, task running, and version control. It aims to provide just the tools a developer needs for a quick code-build-debug cycle and leaves more complex workflows to fuller featured IDEs, such as Visual Studio. Which OSs are supported? VS Code is a cross-platform application which runs on Windows, Linux and macOS. See requirements for the supported versions. Note: Linux users on 64-bit systems will be required to install the 32-bit compatibility libraries on your system to ensure everything will run as expected. Note: macOS users will require a 64-bit operating system to fully utilise all features of Atari Dev Studio and will be required to install the SDL libraries on your system to ensure the A7800 emulator will run as expected. Installing the extension Once you have installed VS Code (available here), open the VS Code program and complete the following: From the Activity Bar, click the Extensions button to display the Extensions window. From the Extensions window, type Atari into the Search box and press Enter to display the list of available extensions. From the list of available extensions, locate Atari Dev Studio and click the green Install button. Updating the extension Updates will be regularly provided and you will be notified via VS Code when one has been made available. Once an update has been installed you will generally be prompted to restart VS Code. Using Atari Dev Studio Compiling your program To display the available extension features press CTRL+SHIFT+P to display the Command Palette. From the command palette prompt type adv to short-list the available options: ads: Open the Welcome page ads: Compile source code (Shift+F5) ads: Compile source code and run in emulator (F5) ads: Kill build process Language Selection When you load a file the initial language will be chosen based on the file extension. For example: batari Basic (.bas, .bb) [Default for .bas files] 7800basic (.bas, .78b) dasm (.dasm, .asm, .a, .h) To change a language you can click on the Status Bar Language selector and a list will be shown allowing you to choose another language. Optionally in the Settings you will be able to either let the extension choose based on the active language or set a specific language to always compile against. Build scripts [preview] Prefer using scripts to build your dasm games? If you have chosen to override the dasm compiler (select Make via the Settings) , Atari Dev Studio will scan and detect for makefile, batch (makefile.bat) or shell scripts (makefile.sh) files which are located in your root workspace folder to build your game. Note: You are totally responsible to ensure your environment is properly configured to allow you to utilise the tools and applications you will be interacting with. No support will be provided for this feature. Status Bar Apart from using the Command Palette to select compilation, there are a number of short-cut buttons on the Status Bar allowing you to: Display the extension version (might be useful at times) Open the Welcome page Open the Sprite Editor Compile source code (Shift+F5) Compile source code and run (F5) Note: The short-cut buttons on the Status Bar can be turned off via the Settings. Sprite Editor [preview] Atari Dev Studio includes a simple and easy to use Sprite Editor allowing you to create sprites, tiles and other objects for use in your projects. It has the following features: New Project wizard allowing you to select the console (2600 or 7800), size, region (NTSC or PAL palette) and total colors of your sprites Load and Save projects allowing you to save and come back to on-going work Editing features such and palette selector, zoom, pen, eraser, fill and move modes Ability to manage your sprites in a sortable list with options to copy, paste, duplicate, resize and delete Export sprites to batari Basic or assembly source code (2600) Export sprites to .png files (7800) - either selected or all (compatible with 7800basic 3+1 and 12+1 image requirements) Load and save palettes The Sprite Editor is based on Spritemate by Ingo Hinterding (GitHub) and was suggested by RandomTerrain for inclusion in Atari Dev Studio. I have customised the source to provide the required features necessary for editing sprites, tiles and objects for the Atari platforms. This work is currently in preview and will be on-going until all required features have been added. Settings There are a number of compiler, emulator and editor configuration options available in Atari Dev Studio which can be changed via the Settings (Preferences -> Settings -> Extensions -> Atari Dev Studio). Debugging the extension During the development phase of the extension I've added some developer output to assist with any issues that may appear. To view this output, open the VS Code Developer Tools by selecting Help -> Toggle Developer Tools from the menu, and in the debugger window ensure the Console tab is activated. This information may help identify the area where the extension is failing to process as expected. Known Issues There are currently no known feature issues. If you find a problem please raise an issue on GitHub or contact mksmith at the AtariAge community.

Matthew Dillon started dasm in 1987-1988. Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert extended dasm in 1995. dasm has also been maintained by Andrew Davie (2003-2008) and Peter Froehlich (2008-2015). The DASM team has taken over maintaining and updating dasm since 2019. dasm is an external project and can be downloaded separately here. Emulation Atari Dev Studio includes the following emulators for testing purposes: Stella (release 6.2.1 - 20200621) Stella is a multi-platform Atari 2600 VCS emulator released under the GNU General Public License (GPL). Stella was originally developed for Linux by Bradford W. Mott, and is currently maintained by Stephen Anthony. Since its original release several people have joined the development team to port Stella to other operating systems such as AcornOS, AmigaOS, DOS, FreeBSD, IRIX, Linux, OS/2, MacOS, Unix, and Windows. The development team is working hard to perfect the emulator and we hope you enjoy our effort. Stella is included as part of this extension with many thanks to Stephen Anthony. Stella is an external project and can be downloaded separately here. If you enjoy using Stella place consider donating to ensure it's continued development. A7800 (release 4.0 - 20200610) A7800 is a fork of the MAME Atari 7800 driver, with several enhancements added: Support for emulation of Proline Joysticks, VCS Joysticks, Lightguns, Paddles, Driving Controllers, Keypads, Trak-Balls, Amiga Mice, and ST Mice.

  2. Hi All, What is the appeal of new games on old systems, like the Atari XE/XL and 2600? Discuss here or answer this question: http://www.facebook....51278334226747/. Thanks in advance! Shaun.
  3. I was wondering if anyone on this forum developed software or hardware for Jaguar back in it's retail production run. This articles offered me a few hints that lead me to believe this might be the case. http://www.gamefaqs.com/jaguarcd/916378-jaguar-cd/faqs/2895 If so, would you mind sharing your name (if you feel comfortable) and what you worked on. Perhaps also some memories from working with Atari or your company and in the industry at that time, and what things were like. Thanks!!
  4. Hello, I am Matsuda123. I've recently begun a mission to find the AKIRA prototype for the Sega Genesis, and possibly the SNES. I've had some progress so far, and I feel I am inching closer to finding, or perhaps, getting closure at least. AKIRA is my favorite movie, and it's really sad that the games never came out in the 16-Bit era. :/ I'm desperate to find the game. I have been contacting as many developers from Hand Made Software, THQ, and Black Pearl as I can, but it is unfortunately tremendously difficult to find them online these days. I was wondering, has anyone here come into contact with the following people: Rob Nicholson Matthew Harmon Ed Ouano Shanti Traskowski Seemingly anyone who worked on Kasumi Ninja If so, do you still have the contact information, and would you be willing to PM me the contact info? I'm really desperate to find this game, and hopefully, share it with the world. These four names in particular seem to be the most closely linked to AKIRA from what I have gathered thus far.
  5. "Hy! as the topic says, we are looking for motivated people who are willing to help with updating and improving the Windows- and OSX GUI ports. This includes adding new features to the menus, fixing occasional bugs, and perhaps improving the general experience of the respective port(s). even if you are not into the GUI stuff, but have some low level knowledge (sound, video etc) on the respective platform, your help is appreciated. if you are interested, please contact us on either IRC (freenode #vice-dev) or our mailing list (vice-emu-mail<AT>lists.sourceforge.net) thanks for listening, end of transmission" SOURCE: http://www.lemon64.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=53458&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=
