New atari 800emulator released (updated)

Post by pavelbure » Fri Feb 03, 2006 12:09 pm

here is a copy and paste of the email i recieved. i havent tried this out yet.

Hi,

I've just made available the version 0.76 of the dreamcast port of
the atari800 emulator (atari800.atari.org).

The main changes are:

* use Atari800 cvs code base as of jan-27-2006
* use KOS svn code base version 289
* unplugging/replugging controllers after atari800dc has started
up works now
* screen update is now done by an assembler routine

You can get source and binaries (no CD images, since there are
copyrighted BIOS ROMs and games/programs needed to make a CD) at

ftp://ftp.groessler.org/pub/chris/dream ... 800dc/0.76 .

regards,
chris

Sorry to bring this up again, but I'd like to know: How do I correctly burn the latest version?
I burned one of the previous versions successfully, but can't get this done. The compressed file I got from the FTP contains an elf, Atari800.bin (unscrambled), and Atari800.scrambled. I just took the Atari800.scrambled file and renamed it to Atari800.bin. Then I used both Bootdreams and Selfboot, CDI and Nero images, but everytime the DC wouldn't boot the resulting image, it just goes back to start menu. To be sure, I just generated and burned the latest version of Neo4all with the same settings and methods, and that worked.

Ah, I just downloaded the files labled as "easier to burn" from this site, and those do work without a problem. It's just a previous version, but that's fine. Was my fault that the bin needs to be labled as 1st_read? Is this really a must?
