Question About Atari Emulators
« on: November 09, 2009, 08:36:27 pm »
Can the Atari Emulators also accept Intellivision ROMS?
I remember that, on an Atari 2600, you could put Intellivision carts in and they would work.  So, wondering if the emu works the same way?

Or do you need to change the file extensions in any way?
Or, would someone need to actually come up with a seperate emu for Intellivision?

Anyone know anything about this?

No, you can't. The VCS never ran with Intellivision cartridges either. There was a hardware supplement for the Intellivision II system, that allowed the usage of VCS cartridges on a Intellivision II system, not vice versa.

There were also a few ports of Intellivision games to the Atari VCS (2600).  That may be what you're remembering.

Of course, the ported games will play on the Atari emulator!

Is anybody working on an Intelevision emulator? That's probably the "biggest" emulatable console that's still missing on the Dingoo.

Maybe.  I was a kid, so it was a long long time ago.  I just remember some carts with an Intellivision label that we could play on our Atari 2600.

Mattel Electronics did release games for the 2600 under the "M Network" banner.
