thanks for all the testing you did, i wish i had your patience ;-)

 

just a quick update:

 

games that already worked in v9:

Great Escape

Heli in the Caves

MazezaM

Same Game

 

after some fixes the rest seems to be working now except for Ms. Bulimia

 

Gangsters and Superfly are .atr

Yes, Gangsters and Superfly XL are ATR, sorry.

 

So we are getting near perfect compatibility for XEX too.

We cannot say 100% because we would need to test thousand games.

Anyway, if someone find a not working XEX, he can post it here so you can fix firmware.

 

We now need to investigate the problem of XEX and memory expansions.

 

Regarding ATR compatibility, if I am not wrong, the file to put in the root is Altirra OS.

Perhaps the original OS could improve compatibility?

you can try this update to see whether it fixes reported xex files and issues on your expanded XL

instructions are in the zip

regarding .atr support, most issues are probably due to game/program either overwriting ram under kernel or reenabling rom and by doing that, removing the patches needed to redirect disk reads to cart

.atr support is just a bonus since it probably can't be done properly via cart slot

Instructions: "Wait until "All OK" is printed and then powercycle your Atari".

 

"All done" message appeared so I waited "All OK" message but it never appeared. :lol:

interesting, i've tried all those attached games and they worked for me (although on 800XE)

i will probably have to move u1mb to 800XL

 

i'm wondering , this version of bomb jack doesn't work either?

I disabled U1MB and installed a 320XL external memory expansion and now all not working games work, Duszpasterz Jan Rzygon and Bomb Jack (2 versions) excluded.

bad apple works, atari blast goes into black screen when new game is started

 

what firmware do you have in your u1mb? did you try to play with its settings to see if it makes any difference?

You did not sound like you were talking about a XL/XE to VCS2600 adapter.It seemed like you wanted a new Multi Cart for the VCS off tmp

Nir, if you read previous posts, you know that CAR and 64KB XEX compatibility is very good.

It remains to do more tests regarding >64KB XEX compability.
