Atari800 project is an Atari 8-bit computer and 5200 game system emulator for multiple platforms.
It runs on DOS, Windows, Amiga, Atari ST, Mac, and Linux/UNIX.
It includes support for Atari cartridge ROMs, popular Atari disk images files, running Atari binaries directly from the host system, and accessing the host filesystem from within the emulated Atari.
Here are some key features of "Atari800":
Atari 400, 800, 600 XL, 800XL, 130XE, 5200 Games System.
130XE compatible memory expansions: 320K, 576K, 1088K.
Optional 4K RAM between 0xc000 and 0xcfff in 400/800 mode.
Cycle-exact 6502 emulation, all unofficial instructions.
Cycle-exact NMI interrupts, scanline-based POKEY interrupts.
Cycle-exact ANTIC and GTIA emulation, all display modes.
Player/Missile Graphics, exact priority control and collision detection.
Exact POKEY registers (sound and random number generator).
8 disk drives, emulated at computer-to-drive communication and fast patched SIO levels.
ATR, XFD, DCM, ATR.GZ and XFD.GZ disk images.
Direct loading of Atari executable files and Atari BASIC programs.
42 cartridge types, raw and CART .
Cassette recorder, raw and CAS images.
Files can be stored directly on your host computer via the H: device.
Current emulation state can be saved in a state file.
Sound support on Unix using "/dev/dsp".
Stereo (two POKEYs) emulation.
Joystick controller using numeric keypad.
Real joystick support.
Paddles, Atari touch tablet, Koala pad, light pen, light gun, ST/Amiga mouse, Atari trak-ball, joystick and Atari 5200 analog controller emulated using mouse.
R-Time 8 emulation using host computer clock.
Atari palette read from a file or calculated basing on user-defined parameters.
Screen snapshots (normal and interlaced) to PCX and PNG files.
Sound output may be written to WAV files.
User interface on all versions supporting bitmapped graphics.
R: device (the Atari850 serial ports) mapped to net or real serial port.
What's New in This Release:
Blargg's NTSC composite video emulator, based on NewRisingSun's Algorithm.
small fixes in ANTIC/GTIA emulation
fixed DCM image handling (broken in 2.0.0)
added emulation of Atari XL/XE with 192 KB RAM
integrated SEGA Dreamcast port
Atari Inverse key mapped also to "`" (backquote) in SDL port
some minor improvements
much more DOC/TODO
