All-in-one Atari (ST-STe-TT-Falcon) Solution on your Raspberry Pi

Recommended Posts

That looks super slick! You using RetroPi for the machine selection?

 

No RetroPi. I have coded myself it that machine selection app. It compiled by C language. It uses SDL Library. It is my design. Rastari is based Raspbian. But it boots fast.

 

 

 

That is really neat. I never had an Atari ST but now I want to do something similar with the Macintosh.

Hmmm good idea. It will be soon.

 

 

 

Looking forward to it! Nitpick: you know it's 1040 and not 1024 right?

You are right! :) Sorry, I need to be more careful.

This is something I need for my "Use RPi as an Atari ST" project! Plus I can use BerryBoot to also run BeePi for running FreeMint at full speed as well...

How did you manage to get it - I assume it's Hatari - to display properly on a CRT monitor? It drives me mad and there's not much help from RetroPie forums.

You can get VGA port "hats" for the RPi but you have to change the video config file to use it instead of the HDMI output.

 

Best one is the RetroTink which also adds scanlines for the RGB monitor look but it's very expensive at $65...

I have Pi2SCART and have configured most of the systems to display proper RGB. Atari ST is the last frontier. I think last I checked my main problem was something with the controls being all over the place and I couldn't even change any options in Hatari. And lr-hatari not working at all.

This is very cool, will this work well on a first gen Pi or does it need a 2 or 3 ?

I have an old first gen Pi laying around doing nothing.

I think I'm going to buy a new Raspberry Pi!

 

I think I'll just put it in a regular Pi case though, unless I happen to come across a completely dead ST sometime that I can cannibalize the case for.

 

I'm sure it runs as an ST/STe at full speed (or better), what about when emulating a TT or a Falcon?

Anyone aware of a similar emulator for the Atari 8-bit line on the Raspberry Pi, that doesn't use RetroPie/Emulation Station? I already have a RetroPie setup with a lot of old 8-bit/16-bit console ROMs, but I want to put together an image similar to Rastari, but for the 8-bits. Is Atari800 pretty much the only 8-bit emulator in town? Can you get it to run by itself, without being a RetroArch core?

 

Unless, of course, Murat, you tell us you're working on something similar, in which case I'll wait, because you've done such a wonderful job on this!

 

Thanks.

Yes, atari800 is available outside of Retroarch. I set up my Raspberry Pi A to boot directly into atari800. It works, but doesn’t look nearly as nice as this set up because I haven’t changed the boot up image to be Atari related.

 

Works really well, even on the A.

I said that "All-in-one Atari Solution". I think I must do it for 8 bit, too. But give me time to do it. It would be nice to start 8 bit emulator for Atari 800 directly on the Rastari.

Then I will get started on setting up my ST portion, and patiently wait for an 8-bit version as well.

 

Thanks and keep up the awesome work!
