ATARI ST Emulator setup guide

Recommended Posts


I decided to make this video today, as i couldn't find any videos about the emulator at all, and even though it was made in 2004, it's a really good and versatile emulator.
My first video ever uploaded, so be nice! I also hope more people try out Atari ST games - there's a lot of good games on there.
It's a pity most of them (but not all!) had better ports elsewhere, so many just discard the system as a whole, maybe in favor of the almighty Amiga or something.
Anyway, I hope the video can be of help :)

I use another method to import my Steem games:

I open Steem, load both disks (if it is a two disk game), set up any macros and other settings (machine type & memory for example) and then save a config (ex. Cadaver.ini)

Then i import the config into Launchbox instead of the actual games. That way each game can have it's own custom ST settings and it is easier to manage.

Oh, I didn't know you could save config files! That's an elegant solution, which I will certainly apply myself. I have used Steem for quite some time, but i'm still learning stuff - which is great!

I have tried out the SSE version, but on the surface it didn't really have anything I need. But I'm still open for it - what are your pros for using it? :)

I don't emulate the ST much (I'm an Amiga man) but it's got improved features and better emulation accuracy, you might not notice much difference as the original Steem was a very good emulator, but by using the new one, you certainly won't be losing anything whether you notice the new features or not, so why not use it?

If you can find a NoIntro set it includes Atari ST games I believe its on Archive.org. They are in .ipf format though.
