New release of the atari ST emulator


Quote 
What's new ?
In one word : quicker ! (but not yet realtime)
- Auto-frameskip (max 5)
- New screen handling (next version will be ARM asm based)
- Mouse in touchpad mode is quicker.

Which games are really playable ?
Rick Dangerous I & II, Xenon 2, Speedball and many other Atari ST great games.

How to use it ?
Copy bios and disks in the /roms/st.
Bios file (tos102fr.img or other bios) have to to be renamed to tos.bin
Disks have to be in the .st format

cant get this to work on r4. emu loads fine but .st imgs dont load.
tos.bin is in roms/st and the roms themselves work ok using nostalgia (mac st emu)

anyone else got this working on the r4 or m3 simply?

cheers
Rob

I had this originally running on my supercard. Noticed your post and tried it on the R4.
Works ok. Obviously your .st game images are oki doki if you have tested them on the mac.
I´m using the tos 102 uk which is regarded as the most compatible for most games.

Can you boot to the TOS GEM GUI?
Can you see the roms in the file browser?
If possible use single game .st and not multi game menus as most of them use packers and this can cause the emulator to hang.

This is the way I load em up.
1. power up emulator.
2. press right trigger to bring up autostart rom image menu.
3. pick an image upsing d-pad up/down
4. press a button to load rom.
5. some games require a keypress/mouse click to continue loading after splash screen. Others will boot to the TOS Gem GUI where you will have to navigate to the game executable and double click to launch.

Please not that some games take quite a while to load. So be patience. Always check to see the disk access icon is flashing or the cpu load reading is fluctuating as a guide that emulator is processing data.

Quick n dirty test on the R4.
Rick Dangerous.
The Sentinel.
Dungeon Master.
Oids.

Cheers for your reply.

I need to test this again properly; I noticed that the TOS i used was the one that came with the mac emulator, which is actually  EmuTos, which im not sure is whats causing it not to work. I´ll have to have a google around and see if i can find a proper TOS dump. Just to give you a little idea of what is happening/not happening: the emulator loads, showing the neoflash background, if i press R, the upper screen goes green and below shows the autostart rom screen, I select Rick Dangerous, press A, the top screen then goes all funky, the only way i can describe it is color noise. on the bottom screen the % counter and numbers fluctuate. For example, right now says 98%  5  12512

Hope this gives some insight.

Rob

PS: the app itself still works, ie i can press keys on the keyboard and get back into the menus.

No probs, glad to help a fellow ST fan. The emulation isn´t stella or at 100% speed but its great to see the old green desktop on the humble DS. :D

If anyone still at this post Im having same issues but not exactly sure on what to do...
After loading StyxDS on my DSTWO flash, I get the bunny image. Pressing any key makes the screen buggy. Best description is color static.
Im able to still get into options menu such as load rom. But it does little but change some static on top screen..

Read here that i need to get a Tos 1.2. I placed Tos 1.2 into rom folder aswell as where StyxDS is located..
Nothing changed and im still getting color static..

Honestly no idea what im doing... But still hoping ill be able to run sundog :(
