Is a stock Falcon (or TT) fast enough to 100% emulate the Atari 8-bit?

This should be your settings in the 'Hatari Screen' settings...




And you should also uncheck the Show Borders option in 'Atari Screen' unless you're running a game or demo that uses overscan.


There's still pillarboxing on the sides but with the borders turned off, you'll maximize the ST screen.

Thanks! And cool video!  This is kind of what I figured ( and it's technically more appropriate for the Amiga to emulate the A8 anyway :))





Cycle exact emulation of any 8bit with complex custom chips is going to be tricky on 16bit hardware. The lowest spec PC I ever got to run C64 games 'acceptably' was using a 100mhz 586 and the DOS emulator C64S (who also wrote SIDplay for Amiga before that). Doubt you could emulate a 1977 Atari VCS on a 1992 Amiga 1200. Emulation was really the only nice thing about having a 133mhz Pentium in 1995.


The Amiga 1985-1994 could emulate Acorn BBC BASIC and some machine code instructions embedded into BASIC but not a full BBC Micro for running commercial games IIRC.
