What is your top 10 list of Atari 400 or 800 games that you would want to see ported to the 5200?

Which version? I ported the Zeppelin Games version back in 2014

I don’t know... I’m too new to this...

 

Can you provide a 5200 version of ‘Speed Ace’?

Do you know if its possible to put it on repro-carts inserting ‘images’ or ‘binaries’ or whatever it’s called?

 

Only been on this site since last summer.

 

And even though I’ve picked up on some stuff about retro-gaming tech-info, I’m still new to the ‘how-it-works’ stuff.

Is there a list or current a8 to 5200 conversions?

I'm also curious about any 4 port games that were converted.  Shame the 4 port version didn't get that much love, it would have been awesome back in the day to get four people playing on games, when hardly any other system supported 4 players.  Or even if they did, you had to buy adapters.

Is it a common denominator-difficulty in realigning or converting 800/XL-memory code with 5200-memory code...?

On YouTube I find videos that shows a green racing environment, and a desert environment:

 

Are these different tracks in the game or 2 different versions (which would need to be individually reproduced)?

I think you're referring to a modified version of the original?

Ok - but you ported the original

(i.e. with green environment)?

Yes, especially if the game requires more than 16K or RAM.

I was wondering the same thing!  Would love to play some or all of these on my 5200, though right now I have the beefed up 130XE connected to the same TV.

Try 

1) AtariAge Store (here)

2) Good Deal Games

3) ask around at AtariAge who have the skill and resources to reproduce these classics...

I'd love to have Rockball on my 5200!  The final version I posted a while back in the 8-bit forums.
