Pal exclusives?

Hey! Been a while, but I'm working on my foreign (non-USA) PAL collection. I know *most* PAL games by Quelle, Suntek, etc are just hacks, but some are also somewhat exclusive. How can I found out which games those are?

Actually I'm playing on the real hardware. So, it's basicially used for older pre-XL software then? I'm guessing then that if I *do* run into a problem with said files, I would just use a translator to make the program think it's running on a 400/800 (ala Demon attack)... http://www.faqs.org/faqs/at...

Hey! I'm back with another (probably stupid :? ) question. What is "osb" ? (See...told ya) Is it different than basic or same thing? I have an 800XL and am using the sio2pc interface. Some game files have -osb after the filename. They tend to run fine whether or not I disable basic, but I see in the...

So what's going on ?

Not much posting lately...What's everybody playing ? I've found new love for Gorf lately. It was (is) unplayable on the 5200 thanks to the controllers, but on the 800 with Atari sticks its a great port of the arcade game. I found Galactic Chase to be a pretty good clone of Galaxian...better than the...

I've had that happen quite a bit. Mostly when doing advanced searches in the A8 database. I thought it was just me... :?

If you have an sio2pc hookup and the APE software (both can be found here...http://www.atarimax.com/)
You can use the software to write those floppy files to .atr format onto your PC.

Great! Once again guys thanks for the info! I've been keeping an eye on ebay for carts...not that I need them, I have the sio2pc hookup, but I still enjoy the hunt and collecting. Anyways, it seems that buying carts from overseas even with shipping comes out cheaper in the end than buying from the U...

He's Baaaaaa-aaaaaack!!!! Real easy question for you all. NTSC v. PAL. My 800XL is NTSC. Do 800 carts "know" the difference? IfI were to purchase PAL carts, would they "roll" on American TV's ? I know the Atari consoles (2600, 7800) are region specific, but I know that other consoles, such as the Co...
