I have created another way to enjoy the Atari VCS.

Recommended Posts

After spending sometime with the gang over at the Atari VCS discord server, I thought I will let the fine people at Atari Age know about it too.


I was inspired, and created a way to run Retropie on the Atari VCS. So I created a USB Key both 32GB and 64GB that runs independent, no installing or configuring the system. Once you tell the VCS to boot of the USB key it runs Linux Mint and retropie. Also, because the VCS is a computer, my keys work with almost every computer.


If you want more information, I will post some links.


First blog post about it. https://dadisajoke.com/blog/f/play-retro-games-on-any-pc

My second blog post including a video on how it works. https://dadisajoke.com/blog/f/dadisajoke-retro-power-usb-ready-to-buy


Here is the 32GB version on our store. https://dadisajoke.com/store/ols/products/dadisajoke-retro-power-lite-usb-32gb-thumb-drive

Now here is the 64GB version. https://dadisajoke.com/store/ols/products/dadisajoke-retro-power-pro-usb-64gb-thumb-drive


Please let me know if you have any questions.

With all this talk about modifying the VCS, problems with the bios and getting into it. I have the solution, with the backing of the folks who helped me test it. I have two USB keys one 32GB and a 64GB. All you need to do is plug them in and tell the VCS to boot off of it. That's it. You don't need to do anything else. You get a full version of Linux Mint and Retropie. I designed it to be super easy especially if you don't know Linux. More information is available on the product pages of the store. Also, because of the feedback, I am so confident of this product, I will offer a full money back if you are not happy with it, and you get to keep a super fast USB key that you can do what ever you want with it. So here are the link to the store. https://dadisajoke.com/store/ols/categories/dadisajoke-products

Hi there,


Do you happen to have a document that breaks down everything on your build? Which systems are preconfigured and loaded. Whether or not all the supporting media is included (artwork, screesnhots, bezels, videos), if the build is preconfigured and pretested for each system against a common controller such as the XBox One Controller? Just looking for as many details about your build as possible before I decide to purchase or not.
