Date: Sunday, March 23, 1997 9:31 AM I've just uploaded the latest version of the Atari800 Emulator to my web site:- http://www.signus.demon.co.uk/david/index.html The emulator comes as source code for all versions or as an MS-DOS binary. Sorry but I haven't got round to producing a new Amiga binary yet! Changes in 0.6.2 ---------------- o Antic Modes 2, 3 and f now display the normal Atari Colour and Luminance by default. Extended Antic Modes 2, 3 and f are enabled by starting the emulator with the "-xcolpf1" command line option. This allows two completely different colours to be displayed in these modes - as previously. o Improved Run-Time Configuration. Starting emulator with the "-configure" command line option allows configuration of several items:- 1. Location of OS Roms 2. Default Directory for Disk Images 3. Default Directory for ROM Images 4. Default Directory for H1, H2, H3 and H4 pseudo devices 5. Command Print File (for Printer Support) 6. Default Screen Refresh Ratio 7. Default Startup System (OS/A, OS/B, XL, XE, 5200) 8. Default TV Mode (PAL, NTSC) 9. Hold Option during Coldstart 10. Enable C000-CFFF RAM in Atari 800 mode 11. Enable SIO Patch 12. Enable FFP Patch 13. Enable Extended COLPF1 (Two true colours in Antic Modes 2, 3 & F) The emulator writes a file called "atari800.cfg" in your default directory. When reading the configuration the emulator first checks to see if you've specified a configuration on the command line with the "-config" option otherwise it first tries to read a configuration file from your default directory, failing this it then tries to read a configuration file from "/etc/atari800.cfg". o JoyMouse for Toshiba Portables running SVGALIB - Probably also suitable for Trackball devices with minor modifications. -- David J.
