gp2x2600-snap-v101.jpg


Stella is on of the best emulator of Atari 2600 game console,
running on many different systems, such as Linux, Solaris,
Windows, MacOS/X, WinCE, OS/2, GP2X.

It has been written initially by Bradford Mott, see Stella site for details.

GP2X-2600 is a port on GP2X of my previous port to PSP.
My PSP version is based on the work of Aenea who was
the first to port Stella to PSP.

What's new this version :

- Display and save thumbnail images for each save state
- New speed limiter function
- Add option to display fps rate
- Option to prevent the blue led to be displayed when
L or R are pressed
- Add a simple intro splash screen
- Support iso8859-1 fonts in print text functions
(might be useful to translate menus in german, french ...)
- Bug fix and code cleaning


How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.

You can download it on my blog :

Thanks to Stella team for this nice emulator, and to all GP2X-SDK
developers.

Enjoy,

Zx.[/cut]

For anyone new to this port of Stella, you should give it a go. Very easy to navigate interface.

I can't seem to get this to work on my F200. I get the splash screen, then a constant tone along with a full crash. Thanks in advance for any help...

So wasn't there a 2600 emu for the 2X before then or is this an update?

Always good to see some properly retro emu's getting updated! ;) I've never been a fan of the 2600 sadly, I got into gaming around the time of the speccy and C64. Anyone recommend the best games?

For people who dont know 2600, give a try to :
Centipede

I'm getting the same problem as Trevor. Splash screen, high pitched whine. I'm on a F200, too.
And if you remove the drivers subdirectory (in 2600 directory) ?

The crashing also appears in the "official" Stella team GP2X port, must be the same FW related problem that plagues(d) a few other emus on F200.

I think I can see the problem with the OTHER stella port - it sets the tiafreq and gp2x freq at to 15700. I think setting this to a F200-friendly frequency will solve the issue.

This port of stella uses a different set of frequencies - most likely not F-200 compatible.

in Settings.cpp:
setInternal("freq", "31400");
setInternal("tiafreq", "31400");

Perhaps setting these to 22050 should solve the issue and still give adequate sound quality.

@ZX-81: Do you want to try to compile with these settings and hand out to F-200 users for testing? Or I can do this if you like.

You can give it a try, since i haven't any f-200 to test with, thanks :).

No solution for GP2X-200 yet? (locked and constant sound at splash screen)

(sorry for my short and bad english)
