Demon Attack XEGS/800 XL?


Recommended Posts

Yes it normally only run on Atari 400/800, But it can run on 800 XL and an XEGS with the use of the translator disc (Xlator). This will emulate the Atari 800 on a 800xl or the XEGS or the Xe computers and then demon attack will run , at least the exe version dont know if this work with a real Cart of Demon Attack. Or a Atarimax flash cartrigde and the setting run win A800 os, this will aslo run Demon Attack on Atari 800xl or the Xegs and the XE computers.



As far as i know the A8 version and A2600 are almost identical.

The 32-in-1 OS upgrade from Atarimax is yet another solution.

Priced right and easy to install, in a socketed XL at least. Probably the ideal choice for you, as it would make your 800XL compatible with the entire cartridge library.

Although the A8 version is very close to the 2600 I still prefer the 2600 one, which is normally always the other way around.

I think the "zap-in" sound on the 2600 is more "raw" and impressive.


Most of all though I always found the speed on the 2600 to be a tad faster.


It took me until about a year ago since I got a NTSC 800XL to know that the speed difference is because of the PAL A8s I always used to have.


Even so.....Demon Attack and Atlantis are IMHO just a little bit better on the 2600.


Wished Imagic had done Cosmic Ark on A8 too...
