  1. Atari Systems

    1. Atari General

      A general discussion for Atari-related topics that aren't covered by a specific Atari console or computer forum.

    2. Atari 2600

      The Atari 2600 is the system that started it all for Atari, and is by far the most popular classic gaming console. This forum covers all 2600 systems produced by Atari, as well as 2600-compatible consoles produced by third-parties.

    3. Atari 5200

      The Atari 5200 was Atari's second cartridge-based game console. Based on the Atari 8-bit computer line and labeled the "SuperSystem", the 5200 was Atari's answer to growing competition in a market they were losing control over.

    4. Atari 7800

      The Atari 7800 ProSystem is a contemporary of the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Sega Master System. Based on extensive feedback from Atari customers, the 7800 features a streamlined design, backward compatibility with the 2600, a powerful graphics processor, and simplified controllers.

    5. Atari Lynx

      Lynx was Atari's first portable game system, and world's first color handheld. It was designed by Epyx and the engineers who created the Amiga. Ahead of its time, the Lynx sported a backlit color screen, stereo sound (in model 2) and an impressive range of games. Check out our rarity guide or explore many games listed on Atari Gamer.


    6. Atari Jaguar

      Atari's last game console, the Atari Jaguar represented a huge leap in technology from previous offerings. Featuring a 64-bit architecture, the Jaguar had great potential, but its power was difficult to tap. Even then, many great games were released and the Jaguar has an avid fan base today.

    7. Atari VCS

      Discussion forum for the new Atari VCS console.

    8. Dedicated Systems

    9. Atari 8-Bit Computers

      Atari's original 8-bit computer line, featuring the Atari 400, 800, XL, and XE series of computers. Powerful and well-engineered, the Atari 8-bit computers are still popular with fans today!

    10. Atari ST/TT/Falcon Computers

      Atari's next generation computer line, the Atari ST computers were based on the Motorola 68000 series chips, the same as the Macintosh at the time. The ST would also be followed by the TT and Falcon.

    11. Atari Portfolio

        Publix is good!  If I need cookies, cupcakes, or anything for special occasions (or just to satisfy my sweet tooth) I go there.

      Switzerland has enough fallout shelters to house its entire population.

        Well, they're the most politically neutral country on the planet and they only use the military for self-defense, might as well protect their citizens and their well-being. :3

        Do they know something the rest of us don't...?  😟

        Also I just learned that Switzerland indeed has a navy (*), or at least a flotilla of patrol boats controlling lakes across the border.
        (*) Being a country with no sea borders, it has in some circles become an in-joke about the "Swiss navy" as something that doesn't exist. Apparently you don't need access to the ocean to have ships.

    • Just tested it.   Very cute and good!👍
    • Lots of pics here. I've had this thing on eBay for a bit and it's just sitting, but I figured someone here might be interested. Because of eBay's fee structure, you get it cheaper with no shipping or sales tax here on AA.  Game not included. Pics of the screen are through a RetroTINK 5X Pro on my monitor. You get the following:   USA N64 - upgraded with Voultar's TH7374 simple RGB mod Jump Pak, door, and RAM Expansion Pak (needed for DK64 and enhances some other games) Nintendo-brand controller Nintendo-brand AC adapter Insurrection Industries SCART cable Third-party controller memory card   $150 shipped in the USA.

    • Okay...  I've checked in 0.7e with support for Dual 360K disk drives. Press X on the disk menu to swap from DSK1 to DSK2 and back again (instructions are at bottom of screen). Temporarily enabled 1MB SAMS even for older DS-Lite users with R4 card.  This only leaves me with about 100K of free memory on the older DS-Lite (or those using R4 cards to load which always run in DS-compatibility mode).  That's not sustainable... will have to make a trade-off at some point for older DS users. Maybe if you want 1MB SAMS on older hardware you only get one disk drive...    Speaking of two drives... please don't mount the same disk in two different drives until I get protection for that worked out properly.  What would happen if you did this? I foresee two possibilities. It might work. Or... we could create a time paradox, the results of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum, and destroy the entire universe! Granted, that's a worse case scenario. The destruction might in fact be very localized, limited to merely our own galaxy.   I've also made it trivial to add support for DSK3 in the future but honestly on this little Nintendo handheld, it's probably not really useful.   As always:  https://github.com/wavemotion-dave/DS994a 
    • Here you go: DOS XL v2.35I1 (1983)(Indus Systems)(US)[!].atr   Your disk might also be formatted in double density which is not supported by any of the original Atari DOSes.
    • Fairy Fire and Hummingz are the other native games, and NNNNNN has the Evercade mascot Cadey as the player character so at least it is a unique version. It looks like a different rom is available for play on a real NES or emulator.   Other exclusive content: - Micro Mages second quest, which is a physical exclusive on Evercade and was debuted in Evercade, though they’ve since made the rom available elsewhere - Quest Arrest is a special exclusive Game Boy Color version of the game - as far as I can tell the Gaelco games have never been released on any platform other than Evercade - Mappy Kids got an English translation and the first release ever outside Japan - Breath of Fire has a custom font that is a lot more pleasant to read - More games that were previously untranslated are coming this year - probably something else I’m forgetting.   So it’s definitely not just roms on carts.
    • I'll give that a try soon and let you know. In fact if you'd like I can do some experimenting on my end with different resistor values for R14 I could do that too.   I do have the UAV Brewing Academy s-video mod, which I installed following -^CrossBow^-'s method illustrated at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7b3JXgZzcw  
    • I’m just replying to make sure I stay posted on this project and don’t miss out!
    • That sounds like a great deal! I’m in the UK though, I’m guessing shipping will be more, but can it still be done?
