Hi guys! :)
After a long time, I was finally able to finish the new Javatari Release 5.0.

What is new in Release 5.0
- NetPlay! Connect several users on the same Virtual Atari Console over the internet
- Enjoy multiplayer gaming sessions with your friends online
- P2P connection with automatic network discovery, no worries with IPs and ports
- User interface for selecting Cartridge Mapper type
- Several improvements and fixes
Thanks and enjoy!

No need to adjust anything for AtariMania's online ROM playing, right?

No, just update the js file and everything should work fine. EDIT: I forgot you are linking to my site, not hosting yourself... So nothing has to be done! :-)

 

But there is the new option I promised you of changing the background color of the page!

Its in the docs, but I'll explain to you how to use it via email, ok?

Not sure if it's appropriate to ask here since it's 2 years old but this is the relevant Google result I found.

 

Someone asked about whether there are Javatari Netplayers and playing Atari multiplayer has been on my mind for years but I never knew it was possible. But... How do you set it up on Javatari? Also, any chance of making a mouse-input for paddles? Medieval Mayhem and Joust are among the first games I'd like to try netplaying.

Hey!

 

Starting a multiplayer session in Javatari is very easy. One player has to "host" the session, giving it a name, then the others "join" the session by entering the same name.

All this is controlled by the menu entry Power > NetPlay!

 

Since its completely peer to peer, sometimes the network discovery take a while to finish the connection, and also the speed and experience on the games depend heavily on the players network quality.

Oh I thought the "power button" literally just turns turns the console on and off so I only looked at the gear icon. Seems a bit unintuitive, but thanks for clearing that up.

 

Hoping to see mouse support for paddles in the future as well.

So I tried to join a session yesterday but when I clicked on a link shared to me by the host, all I get to is the emulator screen with no game running or cartridge inserted.

I tried hosting later but my partner told me they're seeing the same "no game" screen as I do but that it says "establishing connection". I'd see client2 joining a second before client2 dropped.

 

Another problem, I previously tried loading a ROM on there and today I wanted to try loading a different ROM but it doesn't work. All I could play is the first game I ever loaded. I'd click on the cartridge space and there's a button that says "open ROM file" but I clicked it and no window opened like the first time. The thing simply disappears.

Very strange indeed...

Please, tell me what is your device, OS and browser.

I seems like something may be "blocking" some functions on your system.

Are you using some sort of web security software, strong firewalls, or an Apple device? Maybe its blocking the RTC connection process.
