Is there a set of "master list" of Disk images or Roms for the Atari 8bit?

Recommended Posts

Is there a consensus good set of disk images or rom images for the Atari 8bit computers?

 

I'm not sure how to word my question. For instance, for other systems I notice there are a set of images such as the "nointro" set. Is there anything like that for the Atari 8bit computer?

 

I'd like a personal backup in case the internet ever fails.

I see certain repositories that contain tons of 8bit images, but alot of the stuff on there is what I would consider junk, or inferior, stuff that I would not even want.

 

Does this question make any sense? Any recommendations?

IMHO Homesoft (click download all) has the best collection of XEX and ATR games images. Files are continually updated and improved (quick loads, no intros, no screen flashings, no decrounching times...)

But this website doesn't have ROM nor demos or applications and filenames don't have infos (date, publisher...).

a8preservation.com has a highly curated list of disk, cassette and cartridge dumps from confirmed, original media.

Has an extensive archive. For instance, pigwa has the 'closer to home' archive, which is extensive.

 

Any collection will have 'junk' and commercial stuff, you have to wade thru it.

 

If the internet 'fails', probably we had a new world war.

 

There is a lot of magazine programs, that were good.

 

'High' quality, you mean mostly commercial stuff, which was copy protected and had to be 'cracked'.

 

It helps if you know the name of what you want.
