    Atari compute (400/800/800xl/etc.) Emulator by Christian Groessler

    Last release: Version 0.75 (Jan 17th, 2002)
    Info: Emulates Atari 400,800,800xl amongst others. There are no CD images available though, since currently copyrighted BIOS ROMs are needed to make a CD. Read the readme for further instructions!
    What's new in version 0.75:
  • uses Atari800 cvs code base as of jan-11-2003
  • reverted the sound changes which were introduced in the 0.72 version - the sound should be similar to 0.71.
  • saved states on the VMU now show a Atari icon. Due to a change in the layout of the state save file, saved states of previous versions aren't recognized.
  • changing video mode of emulated Atari now doesn't change the video mode used to drive the screen. These 2 video mode settings (what the emulated Atari thinks the video mode is, and the video mode used by the DC) can now be changed independently. Setting them to different values will disable double buffering, so best results are achieved if both settings are the same.
  • buttons B, X, Y on the 1st DC controller can now be redefined to generate simulated key presses on the keyboard. If they are redefined, the Start, Select, and Option keys can be entered in the keyboard emulation screen.
