Main install for PCUAE 1.6.0 and PCU Game Manager and all the modes setup its including all the current modes not include any games
Please read this first… You must enable AutoBoot Mode first, it’s in the PCUAE Wiki
Atari Mode will not work without it, you should be able to install this over PCUAE 1.5.1.
Here is PCUAE 1.6.0 with Atari Mode, it works the same as VICE Mode, you should not need to enable Autoboot Mode if you copy it over PCUAE 1.5.1 that has Autoboot enabled already.
This comes with Atari games in a pack so you will need to install them next,
Run PCUAE Option Menu to Activate Autoboot Mode.
From PCUAE Mode – To activate Atari Mode, press CTRL+SHIFT+F3 and hold them down until you see the screen go black then once its loaded Donkey Kong(Atari800 Emulator) you can switch emulators by pressing CTRL+1 for Atari800 Emulator and CTRL+2 for Atari++ Emulator, it will automatically boot up Atari800 Emulator from PCUAE Mode first and run the game Donkey Kong from 1981 on cartridge.
When switching emulators it does not switch like Vice Mode dose, cause for some reason that I have not figured out yet why, it would come up with a black screen and no emulator so to get round the problem I have to get the machine to do a restart then the emulators switch works fine and shows the emulator on the screen, so cause of that it might seem to take longer to switch emulators, it should not take more that 30 seconds to switch Emulators from Atari800 Emulator to Atari++ Emulator.
Load a game in Atari800 Emulator
Open Menu – F1 then select Run Atari Program and press RETURN to open extragames/Atari_Games folder on the USB Stick, go into one of the folders you want to load from(Cartridges, Disks or Tapes folders) to come out of a menu item press TAB or Restore Key, after you have done that you will need to go to(use the CRSR Up and Down Key(down only work at the moment cause THEC64 only has two cursor keys, Down and right cursor keys on the CRSR keys but you can use a USB Keyboard too) Cartridge Management(to go to a item in the menu you can press the first letter on the keyboard it starts with so if you press C on the keyboard it will highlight Cartridge Management then you just press Return to open that item) and remove the Donkey Kong Cartridge by highlighting on it and pressing INST DEL key to remove it, use Tab or Restore key to come out of it and to close the menu and now the game you selected will run.
I managed to update the maping on the F keys so they are now… F1 = Menu Key, F3 = Options Key, F5 Select Key, F7 = Start Key.
To load a game in Atari++ Emulator
You can use THEC64 Joystick to move around the Atari++ Menu, to get it to work, press fire once and then move right then left with the joystick and you should see the little mouse arrow move to the next item in the menu, you can plug in a USB mouse too and use that instead, that works too.
For ROMS (Cartridges) – Select Cartridge, open your rom/bin image from extragames/Atari_Games/Cartridges folder, Select Cart Type (Tick a box e.g. 16k), Then Click Preferences – Exit Menu and Continue
For Disc Images – Select Disc Drive and make sure it enabled by pressing on Enable.1, then open your atr image from extragames/Atari_Games/Disk folder, Then Click Preferences – Cold Start, Exit Menu and Continue.
