Atari ST question

Postby MrPixel » Thu Mar 14, 2019 4:52 am

Anyone can port Atari 2600 games, my question is this: Can the Atari ST handle Tempest 2000 or, going deeper, Crysis (if fitted with a 2018 graphic card)?

The answer to 1st question is: not 1:1. The answer to 2nd question is: no, no no, no no no.

The closest there is of a Tempest to ATARI ST is this:Tempest [Paradox 1989] for ATARI ST

So then HALO should be able to run on Atari ST as it can run on 2600.
That's probably closes to any modern PC gams.

Note: never played HALO on either PC nor 2600.

MrPixel you cannot fix a 2018 graphics card to an Atari ST. Graphics cards did exist I believe, but they were all circa late '80s, early '90s, very expensive, and very little software (e.g. no games) will take advantage of them.
