Atari++ is among the top emulators for classic Atari computers – the eight bit alternative. It is based on Unix and covers a bunch of different computers – including the 5200 game console. The emulator configured by itself based on the system it is installed on, which is one of its strongest features – no need to go through the headache of twitching each setting. It will also compile on a series of different systems – from Irix to Linux.
Its cycle precise emulation is another reason behind its popularity, not to mention the emulation of superior 1050 disk drives. The emulation of FCD internals will pleasantly surprise too, while the possibility to support .GZ and .DCM images makes it one of the leading solutions – definitely a front runner in its best times. It is important to know that no extra tools or programs are needed to load such disks.
