Stella - Atari 2600 emulator for Dingux released

image

One of the most requested emulators sees the dawn of day at last … with thanks and full creds to xzakox!



Hi!
This a fresh port of the stella 2.3.5 to dingux, it has some hacks, but it seems to work nicely.
As usual... put it in your SD Card under local/whatever and add an entry to your dmenu like:

  MenuItem Stella     
  {        
    Icon = "/usr/local/emus/stella/stella.png"        
    Name = "Stella"        
    Executable = "./stella"        
    WorkDir = "/usr/local/emus/stella"        
    Selector = no    
  }

        L shows option menu.
        Start shows commands menu.
        Select to quit.
Roms:
        As there isn't (yet) a standard directory for roms, the browser starts searching at /usr/local/ ... put them where you want.

  4. just set it up yesterday. For a first version the speed is great with a little slow down occasionally. As for the games I tried compatibility was about 75%. No complaints here. Just enjoying mouse trap, cosmic arc, and donkey kong. This was the first game system I ever played and it is still great.

  5. Love it!! I can't play my favorite game though.

    RiverRaid does not play. Other than that it ROCKS!
