Xformer 10 emulator for Atari 8-bit systems!

Recommended Posts

Interesting. I like the "just works" mantra, but I don't believe the hype. Unless they include the BIOS', it can't just work until you provide them. By that logic anything just works, if you do this...that... and the other thing first.

Make it a retroarch core and I'll install it. Looks interesting, especially for tablet users. Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with my current provider.

I do like that you just have to drop the roms folder on the exe, which I assume includes the BIOS'. I wonder how forgiving it is of folder structure within. I would probably have them separated by system.

Assuming it is true, you can enable the emulator to auto-detect if the ROM is an NTSC vs. PAL version. I will probably give it a try. My concern is for command line compatibility as I don't want to use the emulator as the frontend.

The drag & drop feature is pretty neat. There are a few games that I tried that would not launch via that method and it may be because they are multi-disk games so I will need to read the instructions further. They mention that the Xbox 360 controller should work fine, but there is no configuration tool that I could find and, in one game I tested (Draconus, of course) the Y button causes the character to breath fire at objects, but it also causes the game to pause and restart. 

Since I am an Atari 8-bit fanboy, I will be continuing to dig into this emulator before determining if it is a pass-fail-meh addition.

BTW, it has options to load as a 400/800, 800XL, or 130XE which does matter for some games. It may be possible that it has the BIOS or core written into the code.
