Best Stand Alone / portable Emulator in 2021?

Post by Neild323 »

Hi!

After years of using Steem on a windows PC, I'm, looking for a quick plug & play option for Atari ST emulation.

I'd like to use my USB Competition Pro joystick along with a mini USB keyboard & mouse, so I can just plug it into my TV rather than be limited to where my computer is set up.

I'm guessing a Rasperry Pi may be the best option, running Hatari, although it's been a long time since I've looked and there may be better options available now? I've also seen people using Android tablets, but unsure how successful it may be for this purpose.

I have Hataroid on my Android phone, but it appears to have a lot of issues & I'm unsure if it supports an external joystick.

If there is a thread here on this topic anyone might be aware of, that'd be helpful too if you're aware of such info.

Great link Stormy, thanks for this :-)

Also considering a windows based tablet to run steem with, this could be a fantastic option too. Back at square one researching this again so appreciate any ideas.

Wow, never realised how deep this is!

Considered a MiST FPGA for years, but this is something else. Amazing. Still, I think I need to minimize on my hobbies, but this looks like it goes a long way

Tried using fixup4.dat & start4.elf from latest PI distribution (this worked for getting Risc OS working on pi 400).
