Are you using Altirra Emulator to play Atari 5200 games? If yes, I need some instructions because I'm going to play Atari 5200 games on the first time.

What???  And help the competition?  LOL!

Sure!  It's not hard.  Under the system menu, go to "hardware" and select 5200.  Then you attach cartridges under the "file" menu.

As of now, I have not figured out how to use my Atari joystick (with the stelladaptor), so I'm using keyboard controls.

Thank you. I played 5200 Jr. Pac-Man just to test.

I forgot a detail: what keyboard control do you use to select game variations like on 5200 Jr. Pac-Man (and Pac-Man / Ms. Pac-Man)? I played on default variation only - Bicycle.

I haven't figured out all the keyboard commands yet for the 5200 controller.  Won't let me pick the gamepad option for the 5200 games, but it works fine in 800 mode.  Too bad because I could attain much higher scores if I could use the joystick.

I found the keys to Select game variations!

On 5200 Pac-Man:

  • Shift and + to select level
  • Shift and - to press 1-2 player

Awesome!  Thanks!  I'm going to keep fiddling around and see if I can get my CX-40/Stelladptor to work with it.  :)
