You need to download both the emulator and the system ROMs, then any disk or cartridge files which contain the actual Atari programs. The ROMs are completely legal (hosted with permission on the website) but you should have a legal copy of any program you run.Atari800 is an Atari 800, 800XL, 130XE and 5200 emulator for Unix, Amiga, MS-DOS, Atari TT/Falcon, SDL and WinCE. Our main objective is to create a freely distributable portable emulator (i.e. with source code available).
Download emulator: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... e_id=32946
Download Atari system ROMs: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfile ... e_id=32947
License: open source (Atari system ROMs are not opensource, but freely available: "Darek Mihocka got the permission from Atari corp. to distribute the images of Atari 800XL's OS and BASIC ROMs. The XFormer 2.5 package that contains these ROM images is free now so download and unpack it to get the ROM files needed for Atari800 run." - see http://sourceforge.net/project/shownote ... e_id=64318)
System requirements: Windows 2000, XP, maybe others
Install: Unzip into its own directory, unzip zf25.zip (ROMs) into same directory, copy any ATR files (games) into same directory
Settings saved to: file ".atari800.cfg" in program directory
p.s. There are lots of legally-distributed Atari 800 games on the internet. My personal favorite, M.U.L.E., can be gotten at http://www.classicgaming.com/rotw/mule.shtml
