For many years, the Atari 2600 reigned supreme as the most popular game console on the market. Years later, Atari's stranglehold on the market would dissipate as the Nintendo Entertainment System redefined 8-bit gaming, but die-hard fans and collectors still continue to support the Atari. One would think that the weak Atari 2600 should be simple to emulate, because of its primitive architecture. However, the Atari programmers employed many devious tricks to get such an early machine to run; therefore, a working, efficient emulator is very difficult to write.
What's new in this version:
- Added 'Alt/Cmd + j' shortcut key and 'tv.jitter' commandline argument
to toggle the TV scanline jittering emulation added in the last
release. Also, this jittering now defaults to off.
- Fixed bug in 'MDM' bankswitch scheme; bankswitching wasn't being
done under certain circumstances.
