lucifershalo, use your backup and restore these roms. Or do you not have any? icon_surprised.gif Man, it's 2019 and backup space is cheaper than ever! (Sorry, could not resist)

This is a great collection. It's pretty much all I have on my SIO2SD.

 

Files are continually updated to remove loading glitches.

And that includes titles on older disks, there is no changelog other than the "latest updates", so every now and then re-download everything again to get the latest improvements.

There is a kind of changelog. Enter any year between 2005 to 2019 and you will see the images which was updated in this year. On the fileversion part of the site you will find by "latest updates" the games which dont have a diskimage yet.

That is a bit of functionality I was unaware of, very useful, thanks!

Exciting news regarding Homesoft, the best website for downloading "clean" games.

Now you can hear games music with a cllick on "play" icon.

Perhaps everybody knows it, but I discovered it today...

The games from Homesoft collection are patched to disable BASIC. They just write $FF at $D301 (PORTB).

That means you do not need to hold the OPTION button, when loading those games :)

That's one of the cool things about the Atari binary loader format as there is scope for injecting code to patch original code/data before it gets run or used (as an alternative to modifying it directly)
