Title: Atari 2600 Native..?
Post by: Trevor Belomont on May 03, 2012, 02:49:54 pm
Does anybody know anything about an existing or possible upcoming Atari 2600 emulator release for the Native OS?

An Atari 2600 Native emulator would rock.  That was the very first system I was exposed to when I was a kid.  Pitfall, Grand Prix, Yar's Revenge, Berzerker....good times! 
I guess you can play some of the same titles on the Atari 800, 5200 and 7800 emulators, but for some reason it's just not the same.  Those games had a particular sound that those other emulators can't recreate.
I know people out there have the skills to create a 2600 emulator, especially with all the incredible emulators they've created for the Dingoo in the past couple of years (even more impressive in the last few months). 
I wonder if there's something difficult or impossible to emulate in the 2600 that makes in unavailable?

that is so oooold, why someone would do a emulator of something like that?
Title: Re: Atari 2600 Native..?

Because it would be for the old school gamers, much like why there are emulators for ColecoVision, Commodore 64....

Really? That's not even a valid argument in this forum. Whole site is about old consoles.

There's no progress on this emulator for native, right? I didn't stop by to this forum for a while.

Wow, that's great news. Thank you for all your efforts including the other emulators.

Keep following this site; http://www.slaanesh.net/
He'll probably release it on there.

Has this project been called off?

Actually we still need a native MSX emulator for the A320 to be complete! But the Atari 2600 is a must have, nonetheless.

There is an excellent Atari 2600 emulator for OpenDingux. I would suggest using that one while waiting for the native version that slaanesh said he would release.

 8) Any word on the release of the Atari 2600 emulator?
Title: Re: Atari 2600 Native..?
Post by: slaanesh on March 21, 2014, 10:04:32 am
I guess I better release it then, hey?

I've been busy getting together a better/faster version of GBA emulation for Dingoo Native.

Almost working... running for a few seconds then something packs in... just trying to find out what that is.

slaanesh: That's great news!! I've been patiently waiting for the Atari 2600 native release. Thanks for keeping the Dingoo A320 scene alive....and thanks for a great version of Mame4All. I use it everyday.

Thanks for the update, slaanesh! Your work is greatly appreciated!  :)
Title: Re: Atari 2600 Native..?
Post by: emrextreme on May 16, 2014, 11:55:10 pm
I still have hope :)
Title: Re: Atari 2600 Native..?
Post by: Spidey on May 27, 2014, 09:38:44 pm
I'm hopeful too. 

I've never switched over to Dingux because I was always afraid I would brick my Dingoo.  Now that they're no longer being made I really don't want to risk it.  But I would really love to play those classic Atari games again.

Sounded like Slaanesh had one ready to go, but sadly nothing yet. We can still hope for one.....

Post by: ace9094 on June 03, 2014, 09:03:40 pm
Fingers crossed..... I tried ALL the other systems, but keep coming back to the dingoo.... pocket size and awesome !

I wish more devs would start creating for this awesome system again
