Hatari Atari Software Compatibility List



Here are lists of Atari software that have been tested with different Hatari versions and configurations.

First is listed software (games, demos and applications) for normal STs, after them is listed STE software. Then there are a few TT-only games and demos, and finally a list of somewhat working Falcon games, demos and applications.

Technical details and any known issues in the software are described in the "Notes" column of the lists. Software having issues has different "Hatari version" column background color; orange for minor and red for major issues. The first known/tested Hatari version with which a program worked (perfectly) or with which it was last tested still to have issues, is given in the version field.

Reporting compatibility issues

If something that works on the real hardware doesn't work properly in Hatari (or something has started working in latest Hatari version) and this information is missing from these lists, please mail hatari-devel mailing list so that we can update the list.

Before reporting something not working as expected, please check few things:

Note that some demos and games (especially floppy-only ones done with STOS), don't work with the free EmuTOS ROM. To make sure they have enough RAM available, you should use the most appropriate EmuTOS version: 192K one for ST, 256K one for STE, and 512K one (included with the Hatari binary downloads as it has widest HW support) for TT/Falcon games and demos. For more information, see emutos.txt.

Also note that since Hatari 1.8, support is included also for STX, IPF and CTR floppy image formats. They allow storing disk contents in an unaltered form, without requiring a crack to remove the copy-protection. Some complex protections rely on precise CPU/FDC timings provided with these formats, and a specific TOS version.

(More information on games compatibility on Atari forum.)

ST software compatibility list

These aren't comprehensive lists. The lists concentrate mainly on software that has (historically had) problems working in Hatari or provide good regression test-cases for some specific technical emulation issues, but some well known other programs are also listed.

By default everything that works on a real ST should work also in Hatari.

ST demos

Some (very) rare demos try to install IKBD code. Hatari doesn't have full 6301 emulator, but has specific code to handle these particular demos. They are marked with '*'. Few remaining screen sync issues are related to hi/lo frequency switching or switching to 60 Hz for too long (used for border removal).

Tested ST demos
Demo Hatari version Notes
1984: No Cooper 1.0 Many very good plasma effects, mid res overscan, ... The loader's protection requires exact cpu/shifter sync, as well as cpu pairing
ACF: Just Buggin' 1.6 Requires at least Hatari 1.6 for correct FDC emulation
Acid Team: Dragonnels* 1.1 Uses its own IKBD 6301 routine. The "Unlimited Bobs" screen is very sensitive to proper IKBD timings.
Aggression: Overdose before 1.0 Does not work with cartridge / HD emulation
Big Alec: Audio Artistic Demo 1.7  
BushWacKers: Transbeauce II* 1.1 Uses its own IKBD 6301 routine. Does not work with HD emulation. Due to a bug in the demo when detecting RAM size, it will crash in STF mode when using more than 1 MB (because MMU is forced to 512 KB)
Chaos: Pandemonium 1.5 The Mega-3D screen exits prematuraly (crash due to a cpu timing problem ?)
Checkpoint: Posh before 1.0  
Checkpoint: Suretrip 49% 2.0 Requires Hatari ≥ 2.0 to work, else the fullscreen tunnel part will crash after a few seconds (due to complex VBL/HBL exception timing)
Dead Braincells: Monoscreen 1.9 (Partial) monochrome overscan isn't supported by Hatari. Demo requires manual monitor timings adjustments to work (which may be SM124 specific)
Delta Force: Punish Your Machine 1.5 Sync-scroll, overscan... ST Connexion's screen features 4 pixels hardware scrolling on STF. "Best Part Of The Creation" uses spec512 mode in med res
Delta Force: Syntax Terror 1.3 Planes are shifted in TCB screen (missing stabilizer). Tex screen works since 1.3 (mixes 50/60 HZ lines)
DHS: Sweety before 1.0 Does not work with HD emulation
Diamond Design: Brace 1.5 Use spec512 mode in med res in the mixed low/med res horizontal scrolltext
Dune: Illusion 1.0 Very nice demo. Some rasters are sometimes flickering, this is a bug in the demo, not in Hatari. Using --fastfdc can cause problems with some parts of this demo
Dune/Sector One: Fantasia before 1.0  
Dune/Sector One: Odd Stuff before 1.0 In STF mode, some screens tries to simulate more colors by changing the palette on each VBL, which creates an unpleasant flickering effect (this is not a bug in Hatari). Use STE mode for better results
Eagles / EKO / Impact: Place To Be Again devel Although the demo should work in STF mode, the colors will be wrong in the Menu part, unless you use STE mode (this is a bug in the demo which disables timer B when enabling timer A to play samples)
Equinox: Virtual Escape before 1.0  
Equinox: Vodka Demo 1.6.1 The 'Kill The Beast 2' part requires Hatari 1.6.1 to work. Also due to a bug in the demo loader that forces MMU to 512 KB, the demo will crash in STF mode with more than 1MB RAM (even on a real STF)
Fraggle's: Bird Mad Girl Show 1.5  
Futur Minds: Snork 1.5 DNT screen 1 is mixing low/med res on the same line, which is not supported by Hatari at the moment
Inner Circle: Decade Demo 1.7 Very good demo. Reset part requires Hatari ≥ 1.7 to avoid flickering bottom border
Lynx: BBS Intro 3 1.5 Good 3D (voluntarily uses some address errors in the 3D routines)
M.C.S: Delirious Demos IV 1.6 Requires at least Hatari 1.6 for correct FDC emulation and for some of the overscan screens. Some screens are not working or not correctly emulated yet (Vodka, Fulltrax, Tekila, La Miga Demo)
MJJ Prod: Anomaly 1.7 Requires Hatari ≥ 1.7 to avoid glitches in the main menu when playing digidrums
Next: Phaleon Giga Demo 1.0 4 disks. Some overscan screens have small sync issues (in Future Minds screen, planes are shifted in the lower part)
Offbeat: The Musical Wonders 1990 1.7 This demo requires STE mode. With STF mode, bottom border is not correctly removed (this is the same on a real STF)
Omega: Omega 1.3 In full overscan screen, planes are shifted due to missing hi/lo stabilizer
Omega: RGB Plasma 1.5 Boot sector doesn't match the physical disk layout, which caused bus error in Hatari < 1.5
Overlanders: European Demos 1.1 Does not work with cartridge / HD emulation
Overlanders: Gen4 Demo 1.5 Does not work with cartridge / HD emulation. Uses illegal/address error exceptions to decode the program
Overlanders: Ventura 1.1 In Ultimate Dist screen planes are shifted in the upper logo
Oxygene: Flip-o-demo before 1.0  
Oxygene: ST-NICCC 2000 Demo 1.7 Due to a bug in the FDC's emulation, the demo ran slower than expected with Hatari < 1.7
Paulo Simoes (ljkb): The Overscan Demos 1.0 All demos are running in overscan, including some spectrum 512 pictures.
Paulo Simoes (ljkb): shforstv 1.3 Small technical demo posted on www.atari-forum.com. It features the most advanced hardscroll on STF, using only 4 raster lines and all possible borders's removal (including 162 bytes 50 Hz line).
Phalanx: Overdrive 1.1 In Dragon screen planes are shifted in the upper part
PHF: UMD 8730 1.8 The Ultimate Music Disc for Atari. This demo doesn't work in STF mode with Hatari < 1.8, due to the non standard fading colors routine used at the start of the demo
Reservoir Gods: Hallucinations before 1.0  
Sector One: Oh no!! More Froggies 1.0 Works only with <4MB of RAM. It doesn't support SID sound with timers during the overscan parts, so it stops music (it is not a bug).
ST Connexion/Overlanders/Legacy: Froggies over the Fence* 1.1 Uses its own IKBD 6301 routine
Sync: The LoSTE screens 2.0 Uses 2 cycle precision to create 0 byte lines on STF/STE and requires wakeup states emulation for STF
Sync: {Closure} 2.0 Very technical demo requiring accurate emulation of many items : 2 cycle precision, wakeup states emulation for STF, new overscan line with no stabiliser on the right. A real benchmark for emulators !
The CareBears: SoWatt 1.0 Sync-scroll, overscan...
The CareBears: Swedish New Year 1.3 Fullscreen in the first TCB screen is mixing 50/60 HZ lines
The Exceptions: B.I.G. Demo 1.0  
The Lost Boys: Mindbomb 1.3 "DI No Shit" is mixing 50/60 Hz lines. Does not work with cartridge / HD emulation
The Marvellous V8: V8 Music System 1.1 The keyboard detection at the beginning is buggy and it is sometimes necessary to retry several times (this is the same on a real STF)
The Syndicate: If Pigs Could Fly before 1.0  
The Union: The Union Demo 1.8 One of the most famous ST demos. Does not work with cartridge / HD emulation. Although it works on real ST with 512 kB of RAM, current emulation requires to use ≥ 1MB RAM
TNT Crew: Death of the left border 2.0 Planes are shifted, but Hatari ≥ 2.0 includes a temporary fix for this
TOS Crew: 4-pixel plasma screen 1.8 This demo features some 4 pixels color changes on STF, instead of the usual 8 pixels minimum width
Unlimited Matricks: Dark Side Of The Spoon 1.0 Lots of fullscreens and sync-scrolling
X-Troll: Long Screen before 1.0  
Ym Rockerz: Popstars before 1.0

Midi setup

If you don't have a MIDI sequencer, on Linux you can use a softsynth like Timidity or FluidSynth instead (if your distribution supports ALSA). For instructions, see the midi-linux.txt file.

STE software compatibility list

By default everything should work with the STE emulation. The lists below contain nearly all the STE specific software that the developers could get their hands on...

STE games

First are some STE games that do work with the STE features in Hatari. Most of these games work only on STE, but here are also some games which work (or have a version that works) also on ST, i.e. they are just STE enhanced. These are marked with '*' (for more info, see here).

Falcon software compatibility list

You can select between three different DSP emulation modes with the Hatari "--dsp" option:

The "dsp" column in tables below tells which DSP emulation mode needs to be used for the given program to work. If it doesn't matter, the column contains "-". The column for whether the program works and for whether it has (working) sound have "yes" when this is true and otherwise "-".

Note that because EmuTOS (tos.img included with the Hatari binary downloads) doesn't yet support OS calls for controlling the DSP, none of the programs using DSP work with it, they need a real Falcon TOS v4.x.

If something works only with either WinUAE or oldUAE CPU core, that's documented. Many timing critical demos (for example ones using NoCrew's DSP MP2-player) that are marked as working in the list below, work only with the (default) WinUAE CPU core.

Due to incomplete VIDEL emulation, missing JagPad support and some remaining emulation cycle accuracy issues, some Falcon programs aren't usable yet. Most games and demos work with RGB monitor, those requiring VGA one are indicated separately.

Title Hatari version Sound DSP Comment
Aazohm Krypth 1.3 - emu Use joypad. 8MB RAM. Black screen without DSP emu. Auto-starting works from Hatari v2.1 onward
Aces High preview 1.3 - -
Addsub 2.0 - - Cannot be played. Exits when joystick up is used, often also on second startup

060 Falcon demos

Falcon demos that are documented to be for a 060 CPU. Issue with some of them is them relying on CT TOS and its emulation for the missing 060 CPU and FPU instructions. Hatari doesn't support CT TOS ROMs (as it would require emulating additional hardware of the CT60, or patching out that HW support, and there being too many ROM versions for latter to be feasible).

Orion_: We Reached Stars 2.3-dev yes - needs 060 + 8 MB TT ram. Music with DSP. Polygon mountains part at start may be missing all details (issue with palette?) and demo freezes in middle of that
TBL: Ocean Machine, Rift, Silkcut, Startstruck 1.9 yes - Require 060 + FPU + 4MB / 64MB TT-RAM. Music with DSP (DSP + sound can be disabled to speed up emulation a lot)
XI / Satantronic: Imperfect 2.3-dev - - 512b intro, starts only with 030 + 68882, but renders wrong

Falcon applications

Here are listed some Falcon specific applications:

Falcon applications
Title Hatari version DSP Comment
AceMidi (demo) 1.6 emu DSP generated softsynth sounds need Hatari at least v1.6 to sound OKish, and 2.0 to sound good
AceTracker v2 2.0 emu Sounds good with WinUAE CPU core, but needs beefy machine for fast enough DSP emulation
AFM (audio fun machine) 1.4 emu
Aniplayer 2.0 emu (Harmless) DSP stack underflow on JPG slide show image switching. DSP synchronization error when trying to play MP2/MP3. Mpeg 1 videos either look incorrect, or lose DSP sync. Old Quicktime and AVI videos OK
Apex Media 2.1 - The latest v2.41 works fine, as do the separate viewers. Resolution changing gets stuck on DSP access unless cycle exact + prefetch are disabled, one enables MMU, or oldUAE CPU core is used
AVI 030 2.0 - TTP worked with Hatari v1.1, freezes with v1.6, exits with v1.8+
Centview 1.3 emu Remember to run included JPEGD.PRG first (or put it to AUTO-folder)
Centurbo bench 1.9 emu New WinUAE CPU core: FPU 812 Mhz, DSP 56 Mhz, CPU 26 Mhz
Old WinUAE CPU core: FPU 221 Mhz, DSP 32 Mhz, CPU 15 Mhz
Old UAE CPU core: FPU 403 Mhz, DSP 32 Mhz, CPU 78 Mhz
(moving mouse drops FPU and CPU numbers slightly)
Chronos 3D player 2.0 - Requires 15-bit display (e.g. NOVA)
Delmpaint 1.0 - Errors at exit if started in other than 256-color low rez
Escapepaint 1.1 - Very nice
FalcAMP 2.1 emu MOD playing works fine, MP3s have no sound / complain about DSP timeout
FlaySID (v3.01) 2.1 emu No sound from SID playback with DSP engine, only with YM engine
FlexTrax 2.1 emu Freezes with old UAE core, but even with WinUAE core, sounds is noise. Startup graphics look OK only in VGA mode
GemPLAY 2.0 emu Requires v2.0 WinUAE CPU core and beefy machine for AM playback. Fileselector dir selection doesn't work with v1.92 or newer (GemPlay bug)
Godpaint 1.0 -
Hextracker 2.1 - Freezes at startup if auto-started with TOS v4 (autostarting works with other TOS versions)
Indypaint 1.0 - Errors at exit if started in other than HiColor mode
MP2 player 1.5 emu NoCrew MP2 sound player
Rainbow II multimedia 1.5 emu Works only with the new WinUAE CPU core. With old UAE core, bombs immediately at startup (MMU not emulated in old UAE). Mouse cannot traverse whole screen unless mouse grab or fullscreen mode is used
ScummVm 1.9 - Very slow, needs FPU, a lot of TT-RAM and user-specified config file name ("hatari-prg-args.sh -s 14 --ttram 256 --machine falcon --tos tos404.img --dsp none --addr24 off --fpu internal -- ./scummvm-m68020-olivier.ttp -c scummvm.cfg")
Voxx 2.1 emu Demo runs, free version freezes after showing startup logo, and DSP underflow (no user-space instructions are executed, only TOS interrupts). Requires VGA with 640x480@16 resolution at minimum
Whip 1.4 emu Effects are working
WinRec 1.4 emu Direct-to-disk recording with DSP sound effects processing

TT/Falcon utilities

Here are some utilities that either have specific TT and/or Falcon support or work only on them.

TT/Falcon utilities
Utility Hatari version Notes
Adebug (reloaded) 1.7 Debugger supporting 68000 - 68030. On Falcon and TT this uses MMU i.e. requires WinUAE CPU core
Calamus SL (1991 demo) 1.0 Nice with Hatari TT or 32Mhz Falcon emulation at e.g. 1024x768x1 VDI resolution...
Calamus SL lite 20xx 1.9 Newer versions work only with EmuTOS (2015-04-26 git version or newer), FPU, lot of both ST and TT-RAM and at least 800x600 resolution. ("--machine tt -m -s 14 --ttram 32 --tos etos512k.img", or "--machine falcon --dsp none --fpu 68882 --vdi-width 896 --vdi-height 608 --vdi-planes 4 -s 14 --addr24 off --ttram 32 --tos etos512k.img")
Cecile 1.2 Hard disk driver. In Hatari works only with IDE emulation. Supports only TT and Falcon
FreeMiNT 1.2 Needs to be installed/booted from an ACSI or IDE HD image and memory protection needs to be disabled (Hatari old UAE core doesn't emulate MMU)
HD Driver 1.9 Hard disk driver. Works with native ACSI, IDE and SCSI on machines supporting those interfaces + NF_SCSI driver. Native SCSI bus support requires at least 020 CPU, rest work with any 680x0 CPU
ROMSPEED 1.9 Utility to copy and run ROM from Fast-RAM to accelerate its working. Requires TT-RAM / WinUAE CPU core to work. Different memory timings on different memory areas aren't emulated yet, so no speed changes are visible

Software sites

In case you are new to the Atari scene or an old-timer who's forgotten where all the freely available software is, these file archive sites still retain their Atari sections:

Demos (for many platforms) can be found from pouet.net and besides Atari scene news, Dead Hackers Society provides descriptions, screenshots and files for tools to create music, graphics and code on Atari:

There are also couple of sites dedicated to STE and Falcon specific software:
