If you need any gap fillers Bandit, just ask as I still have your torrent release (for backup purposes only .. naturally) :-)

Hi, I used to own, well I still do, an Atari ST. Great finding this place, sure brings back some memories.

I downloaded the whole HangLoose.7z set, 140+ GB, thanks for creating and sharing!!!

But I have a question, what is the file structure, I see various folders with games, but what is what?
Can somebody give some insight in this?

thanks in advance

I'm not sure what the Hangloose set contains, but if you are hoping to play downloaded ST games on your ST then this is possible but a bit tricky.
However, if you wish to play ST games on an emulator, it's easy peasy.
I can point you in the right direction if you wish to use an emulator.

thanks for the reply. My goal is not to play the games on the ST, but through an emulator. I wonder if I can still read my game disks on my ST, mm, but thats something for another time.

I am just curious what the file structure is of the bug Hangloose archive, it contains different folders with games, so are they duplicates?

Looking at the structure, I see something like this

---- \Teddystacker
---- \POV CD 1

---- \Atari - 5200
---- \Atari - 7800
---- \Atari - Jaguar
---- \Atari - Lynx

All I can say is yes, there are "duplicates" of games i.e. any one game could have been cracked by several groups and so it will appear in various folders there.
Whichever game(s) you are looking for, to find which groups they have been cracked in just follow the steps on my "where to" guide at the top of this thread :wink:
As for the hangloose archive, I'm certain someone else here can answer your question better than me.

There are lots of duplicates in my hang loose archive:) but there's no time to fix that:( a pitty we never will make it to an ultimate atari archive.. So i guess the hang loose archive & marcer game dvd, stonish, dbug, ppera stuff is the best way to get all atari stuff..

thanks for the replies. So to summaries, there are indeed duplicates in the big archive, collections by different persons. I need to sort it out.

And I can imagine, how much time is someone going to spend on old games and sorting them, lets be honest, I am going to play out of nostalgia and will play a game from beginning to end.

RetroGamerUK wrote:FOR ST GAME OR GAME MENU DISK IMAGE DOWNLOADS:

Try this great site:
>>>PLANET EMULATION<<<
The above link will take you to the Atari ST section of Planetemu.net
It is a great free download site, probably the largest online archive of ST disk images, there is no need to register.

If you don't know how to use Planetemu then don't panic Yellow_Colorz_PDT_38 as further down this post there is a nice, easy to follow walkthrough to using the great resource for all the non-French and/or motivationally challenged users Yellow_Colorz_PDT_11.

And if there is a problem with Planetemu, or you just feel a bit frisky then by all means try the other great sites linked below, and there is also a guide to finding the menu disks you need further down this topic in case that like me, you want to play the game again from that same old D-Bug menu that you played it from back then ;-)

More great ST game / game menu download sites, including a few Falcon sites:
Atari Legend - NEW SITE!! No game downloads, but huge database!
Atari ST Compil' - Français site with a large selection of games. OFFLINE
Atari ST Game Archive - Large games database, many downloads, info on emulator compatibility.
Atariforce - English and Français site with some games & menus inc. Atariforce disks, + falcon games.
Atarimania - Atari ST/TT/Falcon games database, many PASTI dumps of titles available.
DJ OldGames - Some popular titles here.
DopeROMs - Many ST games here, over 6000 disk images!
Emuparadise - Plenty of ST games here many on compilations, much faffing around to get the files though.
Klaz' Hideaway - The home of the Klapauzius label, with some great classics expertly fixed / trained here!
Le Coin info de tof - Neat Français and sort of English site with ST and falcon games.
Mr. Nours - Great Français site with many games.
Nitroroms - Plenty of games, straightforward download. OFFLINE
Omikronman - A web server with Falcon games (in progress :) ). OFFLINE
The Automation Compact Disk Catalog - Automation menus linked from the Berlin site.
The Fuzion Shrine - Site dedicated to the Fuzion menus, includes a handy menu search facility.
The Games Archives - Over 30,000 ST files here! Games and Demos!
The Hang Loose Atari ST/TT/Falcon archive - PM Bandit for access to his superb archive!
The House of Games - A small number of ST games can be found here.
The ISO Zone - Here you can download entire collections as well as individual games. Ideal for mass downloads.
The L.G.D. - Another great site, large games database, menu download links to Rapidshare. DATABASE OFFLINE
The Official Automation & Dbug site - Home of the D-Bug menus.
The Official Medway Boys site - A good place to get individual Medway Boys menus.
TOSEC: Atari ST - What appears to be a HUGE archive.. like it says, TOSEC archive.

Lazy mode:
Old Games Finder - Search engine which provides links to download sites. (Some of which are not free :!: ).
Links last checked and updated on the 27th of October 2017.

How to identify which menu disk(s) the game is on:
There are many, many menus out there with 1000s of games on them, use this guide to find the right ones...
Perform a search of the Wiki, enter the name of the game you are looking for and the wiki will list any menus that the game may be found on....
Check the topics within the Menu disks forum as there are listings for many menus within there.
Or check out Bruno's list - you can download it at the bottom of this page, login first ;-) ,it has quite a large range of menus covered, the webpage is attached in HTML format thanks to the man himself for providing me with it!

Any of these should help you identify the menu disk(s) you are looking for, but be warned, there are some cracks of games on menus that don't work properly, if in doubt, check the forums :!:

Planetemu walkthrough:
Although certain elements of the site are in English it can get a bit confusing if you are not blessed with at least an average I.Q. like mine, anyway, here is the step-by-step guide to Planetemu.
Please note that there are anti-leeching/hammering routines used within Planetemu so it is of little use if you seek to download all available ST disk images, but if you are after the odd game then it is just the job :wink:

(1). Having clicked the Planetemu link above, you are magicked away to the main Atari ST downloads page of this great site, scroll down the page until you reach the ROMs section, here you will find folders of ST disk images categorized in English.
For games click on the "Atari ST - Games - [ST]".
For game menus such as Automation, D-Bug etc click on the "Atari ST - Compilations - Games".
And so on and so forth.....
Generally, clicking on a certain category will lead you to files of that nature.
So when you click whatever category of disk image you seek you will be taken to the next page, for this example I clicked
"Atari ST - Games - [ST]".

(2). On the Atari ST - Games - [ST] page:
Near the top of the page you will see, in Red the 0-9 and A through to Z, click the First letter of the Title of the Game you seek (usually ignoring "The" in the game title), if the game title begins with a number, click 0 - 9.
So lets pretend that I am looking for Xenon II, ok so I would click on X as Xenon begins with X.

(3). You are taken to the folder of games that begin with X, scrolling down I find several versions of the game, I click on the first one - for no reason.

(4). The final page, most of it is in French, click the "Telecharger" button near the lower middle of the page and after a short delay the file begins to download! :)

(5). If you find the above steps too difficult then all is not lost, you see there is a highly secret and elusive Planetemu CHEAT MODE 8O 8O 8O
To activate the cheat mode, stand on one foot, close one eye, stick out your tongue....
Then click the "RECHERCHE" button on the top bar of the Planetemu main page :P
Clicking the button opens the RECHERCHE popup window, simply enter the name of the game you are looking for in the box and click the "Valider" button and you will gets hits for the game on all platforms it is on within Planetemu :D
Having clicked the game / platform you want, basically follow step 4 and you're done :wink:

Still struggling?
If you try all these sites and still can't find the game or game menu you are looking for, or all of the sites I have linked here are not forthcoming with downloads OR the game/menu disk you are trying doesn't work correctly then either be patient for the sites to come back online or perform a search of this forum for the game in question as there most likely will already be a topic that shines some light on your problem.
If this fails then as a last resort you could start a new request topic in the
Games - requests forum, or the Menu disks forum.
Please don't reply to this topic with your requests!! [smilie=greencolorz4_pdt_19.gif]
If you are lost and frightened by all this then PM me your address and I will gladly pop around and walk you through it all holding your hand :wink:

FTP Sites, Torrents, other P2P links, News Groups etc:
For mass downloading of ST disk images you could try to find one of the few FTP sites out there, I am not going to link any here as they usually have very short life spans and I would be forever changing the links, plus there are always problems connecting to these sites.
I am far too motivationally challenged to be bothered with such things.
As for anyone with Torrents or other P2P file links or ideas please search for other existing topics that cover this or feel free to start your own topic ;)

Know of a good download site?
If you know of a good, FREE ST Game or Game Menu download site NOT an FTP site or Torrent/news group/P2P link/site to add to this topic then by all means please tell me about it either here or send me a PM with the link and if it checks out I will add it to this post :thumbs:

I need a nice sit down now! :coffe:

Here is Bruno's website in HTML format, use it to find which menu disks games are on, login to get it :wink:
