tnfs.online and non-A8 Atari software (2600, 5200, 7800)

Recommended Posts

As part of figuring out a solid role for the tnfs.online TNFS server, its content has been in a process of being reworked to ultimately encompass software for all 8-bit Atari platforms.  In practical terms, this means the A8, 2600, 5200, 7800, and (eventually) Lynx.


At this time, sections are up for everything but the Lynx.  Frankly, it's a system that I've never owned and have only fiddled with in tiny amounts over the years, so have no clue where to begin with cataloguing its software.  This actually isn't a problem, because the last thing I need right now is another project ;-)


Anyway, the collections are going to be heavily based off of the following to start:

  • A8: Homesoft (complete)
  • 2600: Rom Hunter's ROM Pack (atarimania)
  • 5200: a conglomeration of Mr. Robot's stuff and software I've found elsewhere
  • 7800: Trebor's 7800 ROM Pack

The incoming directory is broken right now.  lighttpd is acting weird about it, and I haven't figured out why yet - it feels like a permissions issue, but isn't totally acting like one.  Moral of the story: if you have something you'd like to see included, either attach it to this thread or send it to me in a PM and I'll take care of it because nothing larger than 4096 bytes can be uploaded at present.


If there is any objection to the content that is being hosted and made available for download, I am always happy to discuss.  Just shoot me a PM and we can go from there.


My goal is to make this a watering hole for not only the eventual expansion of the FujiNet to the Atari console platforms, but also to give another way to distribute the libraries for these systems in the interim.  And, out of enlightened self-interest, it'll help me to keep my personal base libraries organised, because right now I've got too many variations in how that's happening ;-)


Anyhow, I figured I'd drop this update out because we don't really seem to hear much about what people are doing with their TNFS servers - having them available is great, but it's always interesting to know what directions they may be moving in.
