Here is another version (and i hope the last one) of PSP2600 the Atari 2600
emulator running on PSP.
What's new in this version ? Mainly bug fix :
- Bug fix in the render mode Max and x1.25
- New default mapping for the keyboard in order to
use the analog/digital swap feature.
It has been developped on linux for Firmware 1.5 and i hope it works also
for 2.x using the great eloader (0.99x) from http://www.noobz.eu/.
How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.
Sources are included, and this package is under the GNU public license,
read COPYING.txt file for more information about it.
** Many thanks Poem58 for his help and support ! **

Congrats on another great and timely update. I notice the screen wrap around problem has now been addressed. Good stuff! I hope this isn't the last update however.
I notice that the graphics are still 'blurry' (for lack of a better word) in 1.25x and full screen mode. In normal mode they are nice and crisp. You only need to look at the score in many games to notice that the numbers are blurred.
I know it's already been reported, but it would also be great if you could use HOME while playing a game to exit to the XMB.
Pitfall II still isn't playable as I'm also sure your aware.
Anyway, these things aside, I feel your Atari2600 is now the best available. If you were to tackle these issues the emulator would go from being very good, to absolutely awesome. We all appreciate your hard work.
but your download zip archive seems to be broken.
(at least on mac osx)
Thanks. Keep up the good work.
Pitfall 2 was never one of Stella's strong points. Doesn't even run full speed on a GP2X.
I take the opportunity to thank you for all your conversions.
Expecially for the Intellivision emulator (Inty was my console when I was a little boy sigh!)
Please don't stop!
A question: is Pitfall 2 slow because of the addictional hardware it had to make the music? (well I remember it had addictional hardware, am I wrong?).
If so, shouldn't it be easy to (optionally) disable that part of the emulation thus making Pitfall2 playalbe?
In case you don't want to do so, for any reason, could you point me to the piece of code that needs to be modified?
Hey Zx-81 Best Atari emulator ever. Games play better on your emulator than on the Activision hits package! Nice Bright graphics great sound good gameplay AWESOME. A couple of things that would be cool though:
1. A save state pic or a screenshot pic so you can see your high score on the menu.
2. A sleep mode.
Your the best thanks again
So Zx is this the last update we'll see to this emu. Not putting pressure on, it's just that I'm coming to this site 4-5 times a day to see if it's been updated.
I guess you could say I'm keen for more...lol
Anyway...all the best... I look forward to whatever your working on.
Thanks! Good Job!
Is there anyway you could put a screenshot image next to the savestate slot on the menu screen?
These games are a lot more fun when you have a goal like a personal best to beat.
thanks for this zx, tis good to have the full screen option. Please dont give up on it just yet though, using the home button would be nice but not priority, a nice clean image would be excellent in 1.25 or even max screen mode. enjoy your break for a while but please have a quick think about it. many thanks again for everything so far, im very grateful.
I agree. It would be a shame to stop work on this excellent emu all together. The lack of the clean image in 1.25 or full screen modes is a real bummer and really detracts from what is otherwise an great emulator.
I hope you continue ur hard work.
I will have a look on this point ... I'm using a very simple smooth algorithm, and it would be better if i use the GPU smooth capabilities
Take care and thanks for your comment,
Zx, that would be great! Damn, now I'm going to have to visit ur website every day in hope of an update...lol
I notice even the commercial Activision package has a problem with blurred images. If you could fix that than u would be one-upping activision themselves!
They do have Pitfall 2 running however!
Keep up the great work. All us 2600 fans are much indebted to u for all ur hardwork. A couple of more suggestions (I'm sure u must hate me!), an abilty to autosave highscores (which u could turn off on certain roms if u didn't want). The ability to play MP3 music in the emu while ur playing. This was inspired by the activision package. While not necessary it would be a cool addition.
Oh, and have fun on holidays!
Amazing work !!!!
Do you plan to port an open source Atari ST emulator ? Would be great as the current CaSTaway port is very limited...
I heard that Hatari was a very good one and SDL based... maybe it's worth a look...
You are da man! nice work on the 800 and Intellivision emulators. Please don't forget to look into the GPU smoothing capabilities, and autosaving of save states for this one however. I know Many ppl are interested in this one.
