Hatari

Hatari

Hatari is an Atari ST and STE emulator. The Atari ST was a 16/32 bit computer system which was first released by Atari in 1985.

Hatari tries to emulate the hardware of a ST as close as possible so that it is able to run most ST games and demos. It supports more graphics modes than the ST and does not require an original TOS image (as it supports EmuTOS).

Hatari is an adaption of the WinSTon source code to the SDL library, using the portable UAE CPU core instead of the original, non-portable assembler CPU core.

There is also very experimental hardware emulation of the Atari Falcon, a personal computer released in 1992, and the TT.
